Heavenly Gem Church in Chungchengnam-do, South Korea by KOMA Architects

Article source: KOMA Architects

This simple chapel located on a small road that leads from the city of Seosan to the coast of Anmyeondo Island has been renamed the Haneul Boseok Church (Heavenly Gem Church) to give an architectural connotation to this meaning. Through an abstract image, the Heavenly Gem Church recovers the symbolism of buildings and the meaning of place, which were the primary elements abandoned in church architecture following the emergence of modern functionalism. These more symbolic meanings were sought out and created one by one, adding a sense of delight to the process.

The tree in the house in Jalisco, Mexico by Agraz Arquitectos

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos 

This is a very special house, among other things because its main inhabitant, besides the family that lives here is a tree. Before we go any further it is important to observe that the emplacement of this house seems to be at odds with the street. Although seemingly so, it is quite the opposite. In this sense, since it’s longitudinal axis is oriented east-west (perpendicular to the street), and the most favorable orientation for the house in north-south, it was decided that the house accordingly so, should to look inwards rather than outwards. This means that it is not so much at odds with the street, but instead of looking directly at it, the project deals with the street through the creation of an important transition space between both the building and the street, which helps to change the pace while approaching the entrance. Underlying this exterior transitional space, lies the belief in the idea that each project, no matter how small, has a responsibility towards the creation of place in the city.

Passiefschool

To accommodate the merger of two primary schools the city of Knokke-Heist has developed an ambitious project: a so-called Passiefschool. The building has to comply with the highest environmental standards which should lead to a maximal consumption of 15 kWh per square meter for heating and cooling. A number of measures have been taken, some technical and some architectonic, to reach this goal. So besides triple glass, heavy duty insulation and the ‘Canadian Well’ for instance, the building features a ‘Volcano’ for night ventilation and a multifunctional porch to block the direct rays of the sun.
