International Conference Center in Dakar, Senegal by Tabanlioglu Architects

 
December 12th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Tabanlioglu Architects 

On the west coast of Middle Africa, Senegal is by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and  Senegal River borders the country to the east and north.  The capital city of Senegal, Dakar is located at the westernmost tip of the country on the Cap-Vert peninsula. The congress center first opened on November 2014, for the 15th Francophone Assembly where 75 world presidents met. Typical geography and the natural values has been the inspiration for the project. Extraordinary, characteristic Baobab trees of Senegal are distinctive with their enormous girth. Their massive trunks can grow to circumferences of 25 meters or more. Their second distinctive feature is great longevity. Baobabs live well over a thousand years, so that they have been important landmarks in Senegal’s dry savanna plain; in oral histories baobabs are cited as loci of battles, or as marking borders between states. Many of these historic trees have been classified as historic monuments by the Ministry of Culture.

Five Trees in Busan, Korea by YounghanChung Architects

 
December 12th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: YounghanChung Architects

The trees disappeared without a trace. They probably had been settled like sardines along the topography of the mountain a long time ago. The place got filled with artificial trees of different height and size, placed in a proper distance from each other. Between the distance, a southern sea breeze would linger for a while or the midday warm light beating down from the northwestern high altitudes would collect in no time.

Khabele Elementary Expansion in Austin, Texas by Derrington Building Studio

In 2013, the Khabele School purchased a 4-acre property with an existing daycare facility to expand their rapidly growing elementary program. In the school’s initial meeting with Derrington Building Studio principal, Tim Derrington, their directive was simple—design the campus as “a village in the forest.” The school’s limited budget and tight schedule, along with the site’s sensitive environmental restrictions, posed unique challenges.
