Torreblanca Park in Alicante, Spain by Estudio Carme Pinós

It is a marginal lot, leftover from the uncontrolled growth of Torrevieja. The strong contour change in both sides of the lot makes the construction very complicated.

The project consists in replanting with pine trees the slopes, turning them into a forest where small paths go down to the lower level. It is at this level where the paths entwine aromatic planting beds, always in circles. Sometimes these circles get volume, metal trellis work that supports vines. We wanted our garden to be a concentration of perfumes in which we are submerged as we descend.

BIG PRESENTS ITS FINALIST SCHEME FOR ST. PETERSBURG PIER

The city of St. Petersburg has released the three final designs for the St. Pete Pier including BIG’s the Wave, conceived as a strong character on the skyline and waterline of St Petersburg and Tampa Bay. Its characteristic waves and curves lend themselves to an array of activities around and within them.

The Pier is integral to the identity of St. Petersburg – a landmark – or rather watermark – that is a point of reference and a gathering point for the people of the city.

The Center for Life Science | Boston is the first of its kind in the country, a speculative, privately-owned, high-rise, multi-tenant laboratory building that offers flexible, cutting-edge research space to leading academic and medical institutions— Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Children’s Hospital Boston, and the Immune Disease Institute—without the institutions’ having to spend their own capital dollars. The 22-story building is located in the Blackfan Research District of Boston’s renowned Longwood Medical Area, home to the highest concentration of life science researchers in the world.

Sports introduce a lot of emotions into our life. Strive for competitions and tournaments has been an integral part of the development of our civilization for a long time. This favored development of new and unique facilities, such as Coliseum, arenas and stadiums, each of them having its own style, form and purpose, able to accommodate many thousands of people. Modern types of sport have their own facilities. These are soccer, ice-hockey and Olympic stadiums, tennis courts, swimming pools, etc. Each city has one or several facilities like this. But they are disseminated across different places.

Oliver Chapman Architects were commissioned to design an extension to an early 19th Century fishing cottage over looking the sea within the historic town of Anstruther, Fife. Typically dwellings in such settlements turned their back on the sea and grouped closely together to shelter the narrow streets behind from the elements.

Henning Larsen Architects has chosen a two-part composition to create hierarchy and openness on the site and has integrated the complex urban spaces that meet at Ericusspitze in their design.

With its clearly readable figure each building has a reserved yet characteristic expression that provides a special significance in relation to creating identity for all the surrounding public spaces.

The Ericus building will be essential for the completion of the large park space. Spiegel will become the gateway to Hafencity seen from the main station and Brooktorkai.

This little place of worship is planned in a room in a building which is in an area that is currently under development. In the bible, you can find lots about the contrast of darkness and light. For example, “light shines in darkness” “God created light. God separates light and darkness” I wanted to create a space of prayer where inspired by words of the bible.
