The client who has been exporting Proteas to the United Kingdom and Europe for a number of years under the FynBloem brand is investigating sea freight as an alternative to air – an entirely new concept for this type of product which would cut their carbon footprint down by up to 98%. This initiative is in response to Marks & Spencer’s Plan A requirements, which is aimed at combating climate change, reducing waste, using raw materials and trading ethically.

House in Hatsugano, Japan by Horibe Naoko Architect Office

This lot is bordered by a road on the west and boxed in by houses on the south, north, and east. Houses will also be built across the road to the west, so our main challenge was securing adequate privacy and natural light. As a result, we decided to design the building around a central courtyard. Although the facade appears monolithic from the street, the instant the front door is opened one is confronted by an open, light-filled courtyard. The plan on the first and second floors allows residents to circle around the courtyard as they move from room to room, almost as if they were going for a walk within their own home.

Urban Living XXL in Boston, Massachusetts in Ruhl Walker Architects

This Boston loft – nearly 5,000 SF with 18-foot high ceilings – presented a number of amazing opportunities and more than a few challenges.  Chief among the opportunities was amplifying the immensity of the central living space – one of the largest in the city – while making an understandable and livable family house.  Two monolithic organizing walls and a floating ceiling plane anchor the space and orient the occupant without disturbing its vastness or disrupting sightlines.

The new Noain City Hall is equipped with passive and active systems of energy saving. The development of both systems was included from the early stages of design, so that the final outcome of the building is clearly determined by their presence.

The program can be defined in four different areas: administrative zone, education area, laboratories and dressing rooms.

Casa LQ20 in Cuernavaca, Mexico by T3arc

Article source: T3arc

This is a house located in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  The main idea was to generate a place where the interior lived open to the garden. Cuernavaca is a city with great weather all year, and the main activities always occur in the outside. Nevertheless, the sun could be a problem in the afternoon. Therefore, we constructed this house in two main volumes.

Wheel Of Conscience in Nova Scotia, Canada by Studio Daniel Libeskind

The tragic story of the M.S. St. Louis, a ship carrying Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany that the Canadian government turned away in 1939, is represented by The Wheel of Conscience. The wheel is driven by gears – symbolic of the gears of a ship’s engine and the gears of a cynical bureaucracy. On the rim of the large wheel is the description of the tragedy of the M.S. St. Louis. It is surrounded by the map of the world displaying the ship’s route on the cylinder. On the reverse side of the memorial are etched in the metal the names of all the passengers.
