Archaeological space in Daroca, Spain by sergio sebastián_architect

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: sergio sebastián_architect

The ground of the historical villa of Daroca folds and lifts to show the richness of its past to the public!

The surface layer rises like a great cover revealing its core from the street, the valuable archaeological remains which have appeared under it. The building is generated from the urban fabric, as a new public space which covers and protects the history of this city and the representative character of the regional institution founded above this former place.

Building For Bouwkunde by Gijs Raggers

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Article source: Gijs Raggers

THE CONFUSION OF THE BIG NUMBER

Twentieth century Dutch architecture was dominated by the challenge of the era: large scale housing. Berlage, Granpre Molière, Oud and van Eesteren. Every decade its own urbanism and architecture. WWII did not change this pattern. Pendrecht, Bijlmer, Tanthof, Prinsenland. Looking back at these hundred years one might think the experiment is the basis of both architecture and urbanism. It is not.

Wooden Structures in Göteborg, Sweden by Márcio Rodrigues

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: Márcio Rodrigues

The project was develloped along the year, and it started with an urban analysis of the area of Göteborg located north of Nordstan comercial area. The strategy was to create a green corridor, along a small river that could be enhanced and reutilized. The strategy was a sort of spine, made by a interconection of green spaces, and some common elements define it: the river, the new proposed cycling lane and the pedestrian way. The structures that we propose are modular and there is a possible extension to the global intervention: a logic that can be repeated along all the system, adapting to the conditions of each site.

Salon Urbain in Quebec, Canada by Sid Lee Architecture

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Article source: Sid Lee Architecture

Sid Lee Architecture and Ædifica turned the parking area at Place des Arts into a Salon Urbain, a versatile new space ideal
for meeting up before or after a musical performance, a gallery visit or a conference. The Salon Urbain fully captures the
artistic appeal of the site, located at the St. Urbain entrance of the Place des Arts and next to the new concert hall.
“The Salon Urbain boasts a conveniently central location, but it really comes to life during events,” explains Martin Leblanc,
architect and partner at Sid Lee Architecture. “The space is a destination in itself and a welcoming prelude to the musical
and social experience it precedes.”

90 Degrees Architecture, City Walls Parasites in Milan, Italy by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

90 Degrees architecture is a research on the urban environment of the city of Milan.

The idea informing this projects is to work on parts of the city uncompleted and never solved, without any urban or architectural quality. Our specific interest is to act on the never finished and never designed blind facades of buildings results of a failed development of the urban fabric and of a lack of design.

Our interest is focused on these “Walls” that, in the best of the circumstances, are spaced dedicated to commercial posters or low quality decorations and just in very few cases solved, usually through the use of green climbing natural patterns.

90 Degrees Architecture

  • Architects: Gianluca Milesi Architecture
  • Project: 90 Degrees Architecture, City Walls Parasites
  • Location: Milan, Italy
  • Software used: The projects are redacted using mostly 3dstudio max with the eventual contribution of autocad, with different renderings engines, in particular we have used mental ray.
