ATRIUM – JUSSIEU UNIVERSITY in Paris, France by Périphériques Architectes

Article source: Périphériques Architectes

The 16m building on the Jussieu university campus, near the historic center of Paris, extends and completes the grid plan that architect Edouard Albert designed in the 60s to serve 45 000 students and researchers. The response formulated by Périphériques Architects for the extension is based on the existing system, where buildings are laid out in a crown configuration; but at the same time, it deforms it: where Albert laid out a single patio, Périphériques Architects have planned two. One of them is covered by the bridge-buildings raised on pilotis to make short-cuts in the ring like circulation itinerary, and forms a “vertical place” that groups all the movements of the buildings. This concrete space opposes its heaviness and hardness to the light-weight metal cladding of its outer skin.

Article source: GLR arquitectos / Gilberto L. Rodríguez

In a privileged site occupied by an old and obsolete house, we face a dilemma: renovate or demolish such house in order to make way for a new residential project. In conjunction with the client we decide to go for the latter alternative and go ahead with the demolition, adjusting the topography according to the new scheme, which will seek to benefit from the wonderful city views.

Article source: Gottesman Szmeclman Architecture

Situated on an extremely narrow site with eucalyptus trees along its southern & eastern edge, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture’s design of the Faculties of Psychology & Economics Building at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC) reflects several key considerations: a commitment to “green” architecture; a desire to create clear and dynamic relationships between architecture and its surrounding; and a commitment to effectively and harmoniously incorporate carefully defined functions within each building.

Mesa Nápoles Food hall in Ciudad de México, Mexico by ESTUDIO ATEMPORAL

Article source: ESTUDIO ATEMPORAL

Mesa Napoles is a gastronomic space in the crossing between Kansas St. and New York St. at Colonia Napoles.

The Project is a response to the low gastronomic offer in the zone and has the intention of becoming both a landmark and a meeting point.

Occuping the low level and first floor almost in their entirety, the intervention of this space responds to the principle of creating visual and physical permeability between the establishment and the exterior.
