Located in a mountain village beside a man-made lake two and a half hours’ drive north of Tokyo, the Tomihiro Museum is dedicated to the work of local poet-illustrator Tomihiro Hoshino.  Since 1991, when the Museum first opened on the refurbished premises of a disused home for the elderly, an average of more than 1000 persons a day have made the trip here, for a ten-year total of over 4 million visitors—a surprising number considering the remote location.

Sanwell Office Building in Australia by Braham Architects

 
May 27th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Braham Architects

Located in the inner-Eastern Perth suburb of Welshpool, Sanwell’s new headquarters presents a contemporary language whilst respecting the surrounding industrial precinct aesthetic, proposing a complex, sustainable solution to a constantly evolving and challenging client brief. The form seeks to explore the proposition of how a commercial office can sit harmoniously within a staunchly industrial context, while still providing visual connectivity to the surrounds and amenity to natural light. Aesthetically it functions as both an homage to and an updated form of the adjacent factory typology, utilizing the existing language and vernacular of the industrial, while re-imagining it as a visually permeable beacon of sustainability, amenity and future flexibility.

House of 8 Gardens in Cuernavaca, Mexico by Goko MX

“Smart Living”. The luxury of rest.
Today we live in an accelerated manner within the city. Quality of life is measured by luxury rather than experience. On this basis we opted for a practical and sincere architecture to respond to our customer needs, prioritizing internal open spaces naturally lit. Less square meters built allowed a better construction cost, less resources and greater interaction with nature.

Our goal was to create a house and relaxing experience of absolute rest and to contribute to a better environment improving life quality.

The 99% of these fragments are unknown for the public, but the city is also composed of background buildings.

Vertigo Pavilion in LISBON, PORTUGAL by JOAO QUINTELA . TIM SIMON

Article source: JOAO QUINTELA . TIM SIMON

Located in Lisbon, the VERTIGO Pavilion was born in particularly complex context due to the physical reality where it belongs, the different functional needs, but specially due to the Portuguese economical situation. This is an area that intends to host a small cafe but also a reception to a sports center as well as a small shop to sell equipment and an informal lounge area. Perhaps a possible answer to such different specific needs is to not consider them in a strict and literal sense. When form follows the structure, the action can simply appear and the real use becomes unpredictable.
