Three Sustainable Apartment Blocks in Paris, France by Atelier Tarabusi

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Tarabusi

The project site is in Clichy-sous-Bois (a Parisian suburban area) inside the urban distribution plan of Dhuys and part of the overall urban renovation masterplan of Clichy-Montfermeil. The site presents great contrasts, tall council blocks built in the 60s on one side and the Bondy’s forest on the other. The project site being precisely on the limit between these two, the forest and the council blocks, draws the project to resolve the transition enhancing these components and strengthening their relationship in a positive way.

MADU in Mexico City, Mexico by FREE – Fernando Romero EnterprisE

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: FREE

MADU is a small museum for a collection of Art, Design and Urbanism. Like it’s content the building becomes an object by itself. Based on a deformed sphere, the shape is autonomous and will co-exist harmoniously with it’s surroundings. The content of the exhibition are in it’s majority small objects and require small rooms in specific groups. In order to have an integrated solution for program structure and circulation, a single wavy slab is disposed in an helicoidal way so it becomes stable without the need for columns or beams and allowing a diversity in circulation that makes a free fluid experience to it’s visitors.

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Article source: Archinature Workshop

The project has a very unique characteristic due its location. It is next to the Sports Palace, an arena frequently used for concerts, and the Velodromo Subway Station. Now the link between both spots is broken due a lack of pedestrian walkways, on the other hand there a high demand for parking space that is not satisfied by the parking offered by the Sport Palace.

Hybrid Badel Block in Zagreb, Croatia by Proj3ct And Spaceworkers

Sunday, April 21st, 2013

Article source: Proj3ct And Spaceworkers

PROJ3CT and SPACEWORKERS joined the Badel Block Competition in 2012 for an urban renewal  located in the city center of Zagreb, Croatia. Our proposal “Hybrid Badel Block” was strongly built on the high-density needs stated on the competition guideline. Nevertheless, it was located on a well-sustained urban environment where the high-rise theme was under tough regulation and it’s possibility was highly depreciated by the inhabitants. Also, it was due to incorporate a wide variety of social and private functions and typologies of use.

Sichang-Road Teahouse in Kunshan, China by Miao Design Studio

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Article source: Miao Design Studio 

This project tries to address a mega problem at a micro scale — Chinese urban residents‘ increasing isolation from nature. Kunshan is in the Yangtze River delta region, a flat land with lots of rainfall. Towns in the region historically developed a unique landscape of crisscross canals and numerous ponds. Traditional buildings were next to or even cantilevered over the canals.

Amsterdam 289 in Condesa, Mexico City by JSª

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Article source: JSª

In a privileged location in the Condesa neighborhood, on a rectangular property of 363 m2 (3,907 sq. ft.), ten individual housing units have been designed, in two different typologies but with distinct differences, each with different features and sizes. This creates an interesting variety within the same complex. It has two buildings, five levels each, divided by a central patio, and communicated through bridges around the perimeter that separate the social and the private areas.

Intervention by Spot-Projects: Urban Acupuncture as a Public Space Regeneration Strategy in Florence, Italy by studiostudio architettiurbanisti

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Public space regeneration through the “Pedibus” micro-projects in the Oltrarno quarter, Florence

The Oltrarno is a historic district south of the River Arno in Florence with a number of intrinsic characteristics that makes it one of the most problematic areas of the city.

The morphological situation is complex and varied: the historic city center is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site while the pedestrian areas must coexist with congested traffic roads. Moreover the dynamic participation of local citizens in spontaneous committees and the richness of social life (locals, immigrants, tourists) envision the possibility to test here a pioneering project for the regeneration and re-appropriation of public space.
