Rainy・Sunny in Tokyo, Japan by Mount Fuji Architects Studio

 
January 19th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Mount Fuji Architects Studio

The site is there in a residential area in Tokyo, dense with low-rise buildings, located a little bit west to the center of the Kanto plain. 
The climate there is about to change from warm humid climate to rainforest climate in near future.

I’m not making a “house” this time. It should be a lasting “terrain” that induces “habitation”. My goal is to shape the terrain up to a freshly designed “residence” with no preestablished harmony sensed.

This semi-rural/semi-urban new alternative development of 30 hectares is located in the governorate of Manouba on a hill near the Medjerda river on the South West edge of Jedeida city limits.

Next Hydroponic Plant in Guanajuato, México by ccArquitectos

Article source: ccArquitectos 

Built between two leaf-vegetable production warehouses, the idea behind this project was to locate the complex’s offices in a space that would draw attention to the constant interaction of the management departments in order to create a harmonious environment, moving away from the traditional office feel and toward a collective experience of working together with a shared purpose.

Light Box in Los Angeles, California by ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects, Inc.

Article source: ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects, Inc. 

On a gritty stretch of Venice Boulevard in Los Angeles, the PSPMLA office sits on a previously vacant 2,500 sf infill commercial parcel. Dubbed the “Light Box” for its simple geometry slotted in acknowledgement of the natural solar conditions, the 2,200 sf office for a boutique property management firm discretely slips into the streetscape of tightly packed auto body shops, neon sign fabricators, digital printers, and various light commercial businesses. The design expands upon the urban texture of the street, while also carving out a bright, naturally illuminated respite for the office staff and their clientele.

NEW NEUE GALERIE – MUSEUM OF THE 20TH CENTURY in Berlin, Germany by MCKNHM Architects and Tinkercraft

 
January 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MCKNHM Architects

The building assignment, calling for a new element between “icons of 20th century architectural history,“ Mies Van Der Rohe’s Neuer National Gallery and Hans Scharoun’s Berlin Philharmonics among other listed buildings of high cultural and architectural significance, requires both a sensitive and strong architectural as well as urban intervention. To us, composition, clarity and austerity all coalesce to form an appropriate response, situated at the nexus of the urban fabric at Berlin’s Cultural Forum.

The Poetics of Slow Office Space in Shanghai, China by Muxin Design and Research

 
January 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Sunshine PR

Indeed, the images I want to examine are the quite simple images of felicitous space. In this orientation, these investigations would deserve to be called topophilia.

Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space

The politics of space, as advocated tirelessly by Lefebvre, is materialized as ubiquitous nets of power relations, rending all the office spaces a colosseum of power.
