Astana Expo City 2017, the world’s next international exposition, is now under construction in Astana, Kazakhstan. 28 buildings and the Expo’s master plan were designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG) around the designated theme, “Future Energy,” a concept that is aimed at finding ways to achieve qualitative changes in the energy sector, primarily for the development of alternative sources of energy and transportation.

Located south of Bayterek Tower and east of Nazarbayev University, Astana Expo City 2017 is positioned to become a significant new landmark for Astana. The development’s goal is to reduce the site’s energy demand to the greatest extent possible by using both passive and active strategies. The architecture and master plan were designed by using site-specific indicators like solar and wind orientation, weather conditions, and the cultural context, determined from a series of studies with the goal of maximizing energy-harvesting potential and comfort levels.

BRIC Phase One in San Diego, California by John Portman & Associates

BRIC Phase One is a dual-branded Marriott with a 253-key select service Springhill Suites hotel and a 147-key extended stay Residence Inn hotel, leased retail areas for shops and restaurants and above-grade structured parking. The complex’s name, BRIC, is in reference to the site’s location at BRoadway and PacifIC. With the inclusion of publicly-accessible shops, restaurants and terraces at various levels along the west side of the building facing a public park, the project extends the public realm vertically, allowing for great views of the San Diego Bay and the events that occur along the waterfront. As a nod to the history of the site as the former location of Lane Field ballpark, these retail and terrace spaces step back from the park in such a way as to recall the bleachers of old.

Beyond the Edge in Algarve, Portugal by Atelier Monolit

Article source: Atelier Monolit

The site landmark is meant to mark the wilderness and the boundlessness of the surroundings but should also operate as an instrument for enhancing one’s senses and setting a strong connection with nature. It essentially represents a frame for human existence and experience, shaped as a monolithic, pure volume, naturally emerging and merging with the rock.

CT HOUSE in Bassano del Grappa, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

 
December 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

This renovation project has involved a detached house integrated in an urban context located in the outskirts of Bassano. It’s a house built on 3 levels with large windows overlooking the garden. The spaces were reorganized and elegant natural materials inspired by the years of construction of the house, were used throughout. The addition of unique pieces of design makes it more contemporary, while maintaining its original identity at the same time. A sole wooden flooring  levels out all the surfaces and the use of soft yet firm tones colours conveys the feeling of a warm atmosphere despite the wide spaces and the white of much of the finish.

Moai Building in Seoul, Korea by L’eau Design

 
December 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: L’eau Design

Easter Island has almost been erased from history as it has no clear documentation of its past. Mysterious Moai statues are the only evidence of civilization. I gained a similar impression of Samjeon-dong, Seoul. Modern Moai at Samjeon-dong began with the consideration of a symbiotic structure for a city, including housing created by stacking commercial facilities and residential units on the everyday cultural ground.

Carlisle Street Extension in Adelaide, Australia by SANS-ARC Studio

 
December 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: SANS-ARC

The Carlisle Street extension is a foray into a new-Australian vernacular. Familiar materials and form are used with a higher-consideration to context and passive design, exploring a vernacular for the modern-day. The extension is restrained and simple; a volume of space that is light-filled and expansive yet private.

The ARCHITECTURE AS A TRANSFORMING AGENT

The reconciliation between tourism and communities has transformed Lake Lanalhue into a natural, economic and political resource. We are aware of being part of  our own time and place, in the Arauco province  where tense ancestral and  historical demands are taking place,  a complex period in many aspects, and instead of avoiding the implications that this entails, we decided to face this period by contributing from what we know best, and this is to act from within the territory with the architecture that makes us the most sense, that is the architecture whose action transforms and summons the encounter of worlds that at times seem so distant, but that share a specific place of the planet, a common place in the Cosmos.
