Tel Aviv University Lorry Lokey Management Building in Israel by Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture

 
March 3rd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture 

Located on the 200-acre Tel Aviv University campus, the choice of location for the new Lorry Lokey building  was driven by the need to be near the existing Recanati building but it offers the opportunity to influence and address several issues that may contribute to the enrichment and urban coherence of the campus. Sufficiently high to enjoy both the western vista and Mediterranean sea breeze, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture chose to split the building into two interconnecting elements. The proposed scheme offers the architects an opportunity to better insulate functions and accommodate a phased construction if need be. Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture discovered that the splitting the building will enable both a lower and higher entrance and encourage the linking of the adjoining buildings through the respective levels and gardens.

Technological Park in Rome, Italy by Archimeccanica

 
March 3rd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Archimeccanica

The project of the Technological Park, connected with the National Deposit for nuclear waste, is born from the idea to transform the host territory into a highly attractive area with a great technological significance, characterized by a high-quality architecture and city planning. The intervention is planned to integrate itself into the existing context of the ecosystem and the landscape, and to contribute to the requalification and the socio-economic development of the territory. The district of the park (an area of 40 hectares) is characterized by two main systems: the system of the constructed (primary and secondary urbanisation, constructed volumes, buildings, practicability, parking lots, open areas, paths, squares, power station to produce biogas) and the system of the open spaces (ecosystem of agricultural matrix, energetic plantations, tree-lined rows and basin for phytopurification). The two systems are in a dialogue with each other and integrate themselves both from a schematic and formal and a functional point of view. The composite model based on a circular form is applied in diverse scales: it refers both to the individual building and to the entire establishment. The circumference represents the permeable limit that allows the Technological Park to interact with the surroundings, through exchanges of energy and matter, like a cellular membrane. The cycle of water, energy and waste are fundamental references for developing the relation between park and surrounding territory and for developing its design within the space.

La Finca House in Madrid, Spain by Ramón Esteve Estudio

 
March 3rd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ramón Esteve Estudio 

This house is located in a residential area of the mountains of Madrid, where the vegetation is so lush that it becomes very important. The plot borders a lake that the house opens to. The presence of some ancient holm oaks spread over the plot generates the location and shape of the dwelling. Tus the design process is thoroughly bound to the place. The building sets back to respect the largest trees, thus giving them a leading role. The access to the house is dominated by the largest holm oak. It arranges the entrance, welcomes the visitor and gives the house a stately presence. Two other oaks generate a roundabout that organises the access by car.
