Schoolgarden “De Buitenkans” in Roosendaal, The Netherlands by RO&AD Architecten

Article source: RO&AD Architecten 

A neighbourhood family had a redundant piece of land, and offered that to “Het Da Vinci College” , a school for animal care and gardening, with pupils who require additional support. They didn’t know where this would end, because there was a plot, lots of enthusiasm, involvement, from the school, neighbourhood and city council, but neither the skills, nor the money to realise the project. That’s where RO&AD architects stepped in. With help of the Province of Noord-Brabant, Visavis Landscape designers, who gave a small budget, they designed a plan which made it possible to be made by the teachers, the pupils, and the neighbourhood themselves. It is a 6 meters wide and 100 meters long timber structure, with relatively easy to make trusses, which are held together by nail plates. All rooms, like the classroom, animal room, greenhouses etc are placed in a row, without any room and money devouring things like halls or hallways. When Rini, a teacher at the school, saw this, he became so enthusiastic, that he offered to make the building himself. And that is what happened. He postponed his retirement for 2 years, and together with neighbours, students and lots of other people he started to work. Under the guidance of a contractor and the architects, he built the school, and the garden in 1 ½ year’s time. And it works! Neighbours are taking down their fences to get access to the school garden. They take care of the plants and the animals during the holidays, and the students finally have a place where they can be proud of to work on.

Ranquist Development Group Offices in Chicago, Illinois by Vladimir Radutny Architects

 
May 14th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Vladimir Radutny Architects

A Chicago developer tasked us to create a new office atmosphere within an existing single story masonry shell. Our strategy was to place emphasis on the intrinsic character of materials used to build this simple box. First, we needed to uncloak its forgotten beauty, hidden behind the layers of old gypsum skin. Once the perimeter was brought back to life, we kept clear of it, and began to introduce the components needed for an everyday “office use”.

House in Paracas, Peru by Artadi Architects

 
May 14th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Artadi Architects 

The house is built in a condominium located on the edge of the Paracas Natural Reserve.

This singular fact defines a double relationship between the house and the place it is located: on the one hand, with the condominium itself, is a man-made oasis, with shade, water, greenery; while on the other with the vast desert to which it opens across the borders of the property.

MM Mixed-Use Complex in Manila, Philippines by CAZA

 
May 14th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CAZA

For this urban complex, CAZA envisioned a lively mixed-use environment  that would accommodate luxury condominiums and a three-story  commercial center at the base. Informed by the exterior verandas and  courtyards, new dramatic sky terraces surmount the building, extending  a vertical sanctuary amidst the horizontal density of the Malate  district. CAZA’s design sustains a non-decorative, early-modernist  approach while forging a neoteric voice through a progression of  innovative interventions.

Vegetable Trellis in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by Cong Sinh Architects

Today, the target for hunger reduction is on a global scale. In Asia Pacific, 12% of the population is in bad health because of a lack of food, and just in Vietnam from 2014 to 2016, this number is 11%, which means that 10.3 million people are underfed.

Global climate change has been influencing the agricultural productivity in many areas. Especially in Vietnam today, sea level rise, droughts and salt marsh usually occur in Southern provinces. The aforementioned problems have greatly affected the national food security, which requires us to have appropriate and practical solutions.
