Liverpool in Juarez, Mexico by Hierve

 
August 23rd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

The project involves the refurbishment of a former office building built in 1981, to be converted into a residential building with 23 apartments. It is worth saying that this building was considerably damaged during the 1985 earthquake. The whole building leaned itself towards the street by 1.20 meters, so the building had a big structural intervention that straightened it to its former position and reinforced the foundations heavily so to never have a problem again.

New Taipei City Museum of Art Competition in Taiwan, R.O.C. by Otaplus designed using 3DSMax

 
August 23rd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Otaplus

This building proposal challenges the traditional definition of a museum and the conventional relationship between building and site. The ground floor of the building is reduced to a nominal footprint, enclosing only enough space for basic services, structure and ticketing functions. The ground plane is primarily reserved for exterior public space, including an art park, Hall of Fame, and garden walk. The bulk of the program and building mass are split by the open ground floor. Half of the building is coupled with the earth while the other half hovers in the air. The purpose is twofold; to minimize the damaging effects of extreme local weather by harnessing environmental flows toward productive outcomes and to re-conceptualize the identity of a modern art museum. The manicured roof plane of the below ground program is pocketed with water absorbing vegetation and catchment systems, while the hovering museum above expands to form open atriums, allowing diffuse light to brighten the space and passive airflow to comfortably condition the building.

23 Parks in Kiev, Ukraine by Maxwan

 
August 20th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

This project sets out not to create one park, but many great parks. Given the shear scale of the project the idea is not to create a singular grand vision, but to create a framework for thinking about the idea of a park that is intrinsically related to how to successfully implement the park over time. In reality, most parks are composed of a series of separate spaces that are somehow bound together. This design embraces that reality and showcases it. This diverse set of spaces combined with the four binding elements, shown raw, gives the park its distinct identity.

Teatro municipal in Lima, Peru by Luis Longhi

His wounds still open for attention, touched, but he did not want pity. Where was his stage was a huge void in the open. The roof and the platform had disappeared, but the energy of all the artists who had passed it lingered in the walls, so it was proposed to act in this space on a ramp. As a sign that he approved our idea, we discovered the building left a boarded door in the wall at the point at which the ramp heading. It was the pass that was needed for entry and exit of players.

Perforum in Tallinn, Estonia by Maxwan

 
August 20th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Maxwan

Program as Inspiration

The building program provided the inspiration for the design. It is a collection of many different uses. Instead of trying to press all of these varying spaces with varying needs into one singular form, the design allows each component to take on its own form. This permits each programmatic element to work independently and efficiently. The varying spaces are not compromised functionally in order to fit into a certain form.

Moss House in Tokyo, Japan by Nendo Architect

 
August 20th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Nendo Architect

This project involved renovating an old wooden house on the Shibuya River in Tokyo’s Ebisu neighbourhood into a live-work space. The house had accumulated some strange and wonderful features -an inner courtyard, an oddly long hallway, a tiny room- from a series of earlier renovations, so we decided to build on these earlier features, but also to “acclimate” the space to the new owner’s lifestyle. The hallway became a study, and the small Japanese-style room a studio.

Community center & sports facility “Pulsen” in Balling, Denmark by Park Architecture

Article source: Park Architecture

Design strategy

The brief called for a 3.500 sqm combined community center and sports facility with emphasis on sustainability both in construction and use. But rather than applying the traditional repertoire of green technologies to the building, after initial concept design was developed, the client called for an architecture that in itself embodied the idea of the sustainable approach. A precise objective that called for bold strategy.
