In this project we looked to create a corporate environment without losing the luxury touch on it.

Distributed in 2 levels, CTS pretended to accommodate several companies in the same space, trying to push the co-working between them and achieving an open space with an open floor concept.

The Radius Pavilion by michael jantzen

 
June 30th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: michael jantzen

The Radius Pavilion is an experimental design for a special place in which to experience the beauty of structural complexity, through the creation of a structure made from a few basic components that are repeated over and over again, and assembled in unpredictable ways. The painted wood structure consists of a series of arch shaped components all of which have two different widths, and all have the same radius. Some are made from a half of the circle, some one-quarter, and some one eighth. All are clad with a series of slats that bind the three arch support frames together into a structurally sound building component. These components can be assembled together end to end in many different ways in order to create many different size and shaped pavilions. Stairs that lead up into the interior of the spaces are added so that visitors can climb into and experience directly, the dynamics of the three-dimensional complexity.

A Former Grain Silo in Chicago, Illinois by JGMA

 
June 30th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: JGMA 

JGMA focuses on generating energy from food waste by reviving silos and invigorating a community. Food is at the center of our daily lives: fueling human bodies, supporting a natural energy cycle, and is one of the most significant reflections of human culture. Despite this, food is continually wasted, in the City of Chicago as at rate of 55 million pounds per month according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Anaerobic Digesters can capture this food waste and generate usable energy in the form of methane gas, which could be the cleaner substitution of energy production within the city. Chicago’s Damen Grain Silo site in Pilsen, a site that once boasted massive grain production in the city has remained unoccupied along the south branch of Chicago’s river. Using the once stratifying infrastructural elements such as a vehicular bridge, the river, and aged vacant grain elevators, a new architecture emerges to suture disparate communities and ultimately connect neighbors to exciting new jobs, educational facilities, and recreational amenities. This area will mark the future of a new model for community-centric infrastructure, focused around bio-digesters, boasting a new international public market, restaurants, public parkland, wholesale food distribution, educational facilities, and a museum dedicated to a century of energy in Chicago.

Ruyton Girls School – Margaret McRae Centre in Melbourne, Australia by Woods Bagot

Article source: Woods Bagot

With a focus on collaboration and individuality, the building provides students with technology-rich, interactive spaces. These include a mix of formal and informal learning spaces – a dedicated base for year 7 and 8 girls, science, drama and event facilities. The spaces are based on the concepts of transparency, mobility, adaptability and student-centeredness. The rooms have mobile furniture, allowing for maximum flexibility and an emphasis on collaboration. Internal glazing creates transparency between classrooms and the break-out space, doubling as an informal space for small group activities. The form and materiality is inspired by the medieval buildings of the Ruyton XI towns of which the school is named. The building is clad in stone pavers, which have been adapted for use as a rain-screen cladding system. This maintains the solidity of the surrounding brick buildings, while providing contrast in terms of scale, colour, vertical orientation, and sculptural form.

VMware Campus in Palo Alto, California by Form4 Architecture

Design

The asymmetrical balance between nature and architecture is the supporting idea for Form4 Architecture’s design of VMware Campus, set in Palo Alto, CA, housing the cloud infrastructure and business mobility company’s headquarters. Encompassing 11 buildings and three parking structures for a total of more than 1.8 million square feet, the campus was designed to reject the confines of traditional office buildings, and capitalize on the serene setting in which it was built as a reflection of the company’s values. The architecture and design scheme take on its forms by revisiting the basic principles of urban design with a 21st-century twist. The project’s architecture of presence is discreet, but not timid. It sets a mechanism that allows for the flexibility of future growth, yet is fully realized in its architectural aspiration.

The Singapore Chinese Culture Centre (SCCC) is a new civic and community institution, spearheaded by the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clans Association (SFCCA), for the promotion of traditional and contemporary Chinese arts and culture locally. The SCCC will house an array of civic and cultural facilities such as interactive exhibition spaces, visual art gallery, a multi-purpose hall, recital room, reading room, practice and rehearsal room and a 530-seat auditorium. Other functions within the centre include office spaces for SCCC, Business China, clans, agencies, 270 number of carpark lots, and some F&B components. Set in the bustling CBD along Shenton Way, with the Marina Bay skyline as a backdrop, SCCC will be located on a site adjacent to Singapore Conference Hall (SCH), a landmark gazetted as a national monument in 2010 and home to the Singapore Chinese Orchestra. Seen as a cultural hub for the Chinese community, both buildings will form a unique synergy through their programmes. Contextually sensitive, the SCCC’s design complements the architecturally striking SCH, with its coherence and clarity of programme, planning and articulation.
