University of Architecture, Ho Chi Minh City (UAH) was founded in 1951 in the center of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) formerly known as Saigon at address 196 Pasteur street, district 03, HCMC. Sixty-five years ago, the university was a school which had a closed relationship with French École des Beaux-Arts. Until now, UAH has been developing rapidly from a small architecture school to become a university with many departments and subjects including architecture, urban planning, interior design, industrial design, structural engineering and infrastructural technology. At the moment, the university has welcomed more 8,000 students of all years and courses. A huge number of students is really a challenge for the capacity of the existing university campus. This problem leaded to a vital need of the new additional construction of UAH in Thu Duc district, HCMC. The campus building was opened officially in 2015.

Design Hotel Hyatt Regency in Dusseldorf, Germany by slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten

Article source: slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten

Design Hotel Hyatt Regency stands at the tip of the harbour basin in Dusseldorf’s Media Harbour, one of the city’s architectural signposts. sop architekten realised its Hafenspitze master plan along Speditionstraße, which includes a pedestrian bridge, two glass towers, a pavilion and a seven-storey office building.

The 65-metre high double high-rise – with the hotel in the east building – expresses a strongly reduced formal language. The timeless, tension-filled architecture springs solely from the form of the buildings’ main bodies and their juxtaposition with one another. As a result, the two parallel high-rise slabs create a virtual cube, which develops a sculptural quality through its various sections and interstitial spaces.

High Meadow Dwellings at Fallingwater in Pennsylvania by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

 
March 9th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson 

Located on a historic farm adjacent to Frank Lloyd Wright’s renowned Fallingwater residence, High Meadow serves as home base for students of Fallingwater Institute’s summer residency programs in architecture, art, and design.

Positioned between forest and field, four modest dwellings with simple wood interiors and framed vistas of the surrounding hilltops rest lightly above ground on a network of nimble steel columns and delicate tectonics, imparting minimal disturbance to the site. An angled shroud at the end of each unit catches cool breezes rising up from the valley floor below and shields the naturally ventilated rooms from the summer sun. Screened entry doors allow for additional airflow and connect the units to a covered walkway.

Common Ground in Seoul, South Korea by URBANTAINER

 
March 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: URBANTAINER

Common Ground is the result of an experiment of revitalising unused land in the middle of the city. By applying prefab methods, e.g. producing modules in a factory, transporting them to the construction site and assembling them on-site, it was possible to reduce the construction time of the 5300 m2 building to five months.

In order to maximise the usage efficiency of the elongated rectangular shaped land, the architectural form is based on a center square connecting two buildings.
