Located in the center Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan’s fourth largest city, the Gohar Khatoon Girls’ School provides kindergarten through grade twelve classes, serving 3,000 students a day.

Mazar-i-Sharif is home to several universities, and Gohar Khatoon–acting as a gateway to higher education–is positioned to become a key institution for educating several thousand women and girls in an important urban center. Girls’ schools are already considered to be major contributors in Afghanistan’s push toward development and these institutions serve as powerful mechanisms for inclusion within Afghan society. Schools are the setting where women and girls will negotiate this transition, and Gohar Khatoon has been designed to support this process by promoting stability, comfort, and community engagement.

058_Countryside Villa in Montebelluna, Italy by MIDE architetti

 
March 1st, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MIDE architetti 

The building is located near Montebelluna, in the province of Treviso. The design idea results from the will to enhance the existing context, gently immerging the new house into the greenery: two thin horizontal and parallel lines define the foundation and the flat roof, protecting the ‘dwelling box’ in between. The idea of timber cladding greatly integrates the project with the surrounding environment and the use of large windows allows tangible continuity with the surrounding vast green park.

Barbarella house in Yongin, South Korea by KDDH

Article source: KDDH

It seems that creating revenue by building a house becomes a trend. It can be seen that building a house with the maximum floor-area ratio and building coverage ratio within the legal limit is a wise way to build a house. A house irrelevant seemingly was placed at the Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do. Although the house is relatively smaller than other neighboring big multi-household houses, the shape of stably standing shoulder to shoulder with them is impressive. The architect hopes this house born by the desire of the client who wanted not to build a house with maximum values, but to build a house for life to become a fresh message to the gray city.

Stage of forest in Jilin, China by META-Project

Article source: META-Project

Stage of Forest,located at Songhua Lake Resort in Ji Lin,is situated on a hillside between the forest and the slope. The site is surrounded by luscious greenery in summer and covered by an overwhelming white snow in winter. As is a delicate site for a “Land(scape) Mark”, one whose indefinite programming demands a careful degree of deliberation. The location and triangle shape of the “stage” was only determined after precise examination and deduction of the site condition, to minimize the impact for the existing vegetation and to maximize the view on the platform. While sitting on the hill, it is facing the Songhua lake at a distance, who is famous for the rime in its surrounding areas.
