“The shape of mind (synapses) creates unexpected perspectives on sites: architecture is not the perfection of the experience (wisdom) or just a representation, but is the capability to produce images, the virtue of a person who learned to imagine and to push his or her imagination further”.

King Street West is set in a transitional area of Toronto. From the tall towers of the Central Business District to the East, to the low-rise neighborhoods in the Northwest, the skyline is a mark of the city’s progress. Located at the meeting point of three 20th century neighborhood parks, BIG and Westbank propose a mixed use development with a public plaza that will create a new center for the community while connecting the various pedestrian pathways that crisscross the area.

The design solution of the business center in St. Petersburg has been developed for quite a large site which doesn’t have any essential changes of the area topography. It is supposed to build a separate three-storied building in the form of a simple, uniform volume with a monolithic framework. It is going to be used only by the company which owns it, so it has no areas for rent.

The shape of the lot is short in north and south and stretches long in west and east. The lot is adjacent to a historic site on the east side.Also, the lot is located in a school zone. Lying within a residential area, there are a number of elementary, junior high and high schools as well as a city hall.The historical site is now developed into a peaceful park in which local residents gather and relax.Therefore, the east side of the lot is the most beautiful part of the residential area. People can enjoy the nature and the open sky.The site is designated as the Cultural Properties Protection Area.  Excavation is required when developing the surrounding area that includes the lot.  We are restricted in our building plan that we are only allowed to excavate 30cm from the surface as some pieces of kawara (roof tiles) from the Nara period (about 1300 years ago) were discovered through the pre-construction investigation.The building is completely closed on the west side facing the street and on the north side which is a vacant lot.

New Observation Deck in Norway by fly Architecture

Article source: fly Architecture

The design of the new Viewpoint on the Pulpit Rock in Norway, is an attempt to combine art with architecture. Based on the famous painting “The Persistence of Memory” by Salvador Dali, „fly” wanted to take the surrealistic melting clocks as a template for the design of the new observation deck. A part of the rock is carved out to give the impression of a giant eye. In this cavity, a grandstand is provided with stairs and around it an aluminum/glass structure is stretched. This glass roof with the underlying grandstand, invites visitors to linger both in sunny and rainy weather.

Red Rouge in Shanghai, China by 100architects

Article source: 100architects

The proposal for Bar Rouge arises to reinterpret the known skyline of Shanghai.

To face this exercise we have imposed ourselves the requirement of pulling out the most recognizable feature of Bar Rouge, that specific thing which distinguishes Bar Rouge from the rest of clubs and bars in town.

That thing was clear for us; The stunning views of Shanghai’s most known skyline of Pudong.

Bar Rouge counts with Shanghai’s most privileged balcony, where you can sit down with your well served cocktail and enjoy the most amazing views over the new area of Pudong, which by themselves are an entertaining feature of Bar Rouge´s terrace.

Residence in the Hinode District, Japan by HYAD architects

Article source: HYAD architects

The lot is located at the end of a “Landscape Development Emphasis District,” which spreads along the main road running East to West through the urban center of Fukui City. The lot faces a street with two lanes each direction heading towards the mountains such as the Hakusan Mountain Range and Kunimi Pass. All infrastructure lines are placed underground to maintain a fitting landscape. Houses along the street mostly have gabled roofs and are lined with eaves facing the street. Some “voids” are maintained as parking lots or front gardens, and a few of the buildings have flat roofs. This lot has been used as a parking lot, which was part of a “line of open lots (continuous voids),” and had functioned as the open space where light, air and gaze went through for the surrounding area.

“Flower+ Kindergarten” is a project, located in Seoul, the capital city of Korea. In Seoul, there are demanding needs for education facilities with better environment, since the most of the kindergartens in the city have been built with the high density of poor architectural design by reflecting economic values, regulations and small lot sizes in the highly dense city.
