Gaîté Montparnasse in Paris, France by MVRDV

 
April 9th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MVRDV 

Situated in close vicinity to Tour Montparnasse, the Vandamme mixed-use block, designed in the early 1970s by the French architect Pierre Dufau, was as one of the largest urban projects implemented in Paris at the time. As a design driven to prioritise automobile use, it appeared as a triangular urban island surrounded by the traffic loaded Rue Mouchotte, Avenue du Maine, Rue Vercingétorix and the rail tracks of Gare Montparnasse opposite the site. Dufau’s design is characterized by a clearly defined horizontal plinth, interrupted only by the verticality of the slender, 30-storey tower of the Hotel Pullman. Once a landmark of the era, over time the complex has failed to adapt to the changing needs of an urban society, resulting in an introverted and self-contained block which lacks urban connectivity, discourages pedestrian activity and neglects any sense of identity.

B&W Apartment in São Paulo, Brazil by Diego Revollo Arquitetura

 
April 9th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Diego Revollo Arquitetura 

The decorative composition of this apartment is the result of a trend that has been gaining strength in recent years: that of a minimal, clean décor, in which the sobriety of the whole is punctuated by specific pieces. The outcome is based on the assumption that we now live with less; there is no room to accumulate little things, nor is there time to enjoy them. It is necessary to reinvent and remodel to a trend that’s here to stay, hence the proposition of this stripped-down lifestyle, compatible with the daily life of the client.

The Tetrisception in New Delhi, India by RENESA ARCHITECTURE DESIGN INTERIORS STUDIO

Learning environments are ever growing and changing. There is a growing awareness among societies and culture for pre-schools to be diverse and provide learning environments through the built form. As learning spaces re-focus on team-based, interdisciplinary learning, they are moving away from standardized , one-size-fits-all approach to teaching. Instead, it is becoming a norm that students learn in a variety of ways, and the differences be supported. Students often learn better by doing it themselves, so teachers are there to facilitate, not just to instruct. Here, the built Tetris-ized environment becomes an enabler and a catalyst to nurture the young minds of pre-school students.

Théodore Gouvy Theatre in Freyming-Merlebach, France by Dominique Coulon & associés

 
April 6th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dominique Coulon & associés

Freyming-Merlebach is a town with a substantial industrial past, in a part of Lorraine that developed in the 19th century, driven by the coalmining industry.

Since the closure of the mines in the 1990s, this part of north-eastern France has seen a sharp increase in unemployment, and culture is seen as one possibility for resolving the accompanying social and economic difficulties in the town, as has been the case in the neighbouring Ruhr region. The historic theatre in Freyming-Merlebach had deteriorated, and a number of cracks appeared as the result of disused underground tunnels. The old 500-seat auditorium needed to be replaced, and it had also become too small.

The Coffee Kiosk in Lelystad, Netherlands by attika architekten

 
April 6th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: attika architekten 

This coffee kiosk in the middle of a courtyard in Batavia Stad Fashion Outlet is present and invisible at the same time. Due to a minimalistic structure and a maximum use of glass, the kiosk is sometimes no more than its slatted wooden ceiling, that runs from the outside to the interior, hardly interrupted by the facade. At the same time, the building is an eye catcher standing out because of its smooth, rounded, contemporary design features.
