CHILDREN PARK at EXPO 2015 in Milan, Italy by ZPZ Partners

 
August 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ZPZ Partners

The Children’s Park, a linear garden with eight attractions on raised platforms, has giant bobbin-shaped elements in wooden lattice sheltering the exhibits and children’s activities from rain and sun. Fragments of domesticated nature where the natural and artificial coexist, the exhibits were designed to privilege the organic language of nature as opposed to a more formal architectural vocabulary.

Bologna Shoah Memorial in Italy by SET Architects

 
August 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: SET Architects

The definition of memory is essential when we talk about a memorial: it is a monument of the remembrance of people and events and at the same time it represents a universal message directed to the collective consciousness. A space that doesn’t allow you to forget, that in our competition, becomes the acknowledgment of the Shoah: a massive genocide during the Second World War.

The OSA Group (Organization of Contemporary Architects) was an architectural association formed in the Soviet Union during the 1920’s. It gathered important figures of what became known later as constructivist architecture. For the OSA, the architect was not only a builder, he also had to be a sociologist for the new era, a politician of the built environment, and a skilled technician to engineer the future.

PROJECTiONE was commissioned to complete two projects for the Evansville Museum of Arts History and Science as part of an expansion project that included a new entrance pavilion. Cladding for the Immersive Theater was designed to exist as a natural, organic component encased in a clean white modern box. By using six species of wood veneer, a pixelated gradient is created that moves up through the dome from dark to light.

Dachas is a housing complex located in Bariloche in a sloped site facing the Nahuel Huapi lake. The word Dachas comes from Russian, meaning country home, log cabin, small rest area in a rural setting. The site is limited in its upper and lower sides by streets hidden in a dense woodland area, a peculiar urban situation, in which the building plays a key role in opening the area and introducing the landscape into the site.

This project demonstrates that economic limitation doesn’t have to limit architecture.  This story is about reconstruction of an old neglected school building into a fresh and functional residential house full of small-size flats. Nowadays, there is a great demand for small-size flats and price affordable living, especially among young people. This represents a big challenge for architects, when designing urban architecture.
