TIWAG POWER STATION CONTROL CENTRE WITH VISITOR CENTRE in Tirol, Austria by Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

 
January 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

The new building for the power station control centre of Tiroler Wasserkraft AG in Silz is a massive, tower-like, free-standing building. The dominant building on the site was and still remains the old turbine building. Various additions reduced the impact made by this building, with the result that the high-energy processes on the power station site were no longer externally legible. Through the forma idiom it employs the new building attempts to depict these processes.

Misaki restaurant mixes rustic and naturals elements with modern materials. Besides of the many plants on the facade, a reflecting pool with carps and other Japanese fishes brings an idea of a lake that runs underneath the restaurant, where the fishes can be seen both on the facade as besides the tables, inside the restaurant, getting a sense of tranquility and peace to the clients.

Passive House Che in SUCEAVA, ROMANIA by Tecto Arhitectura

 
January 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Tecto Arhitectura

The challenge was to create a simple, sustainable, two-storey unit that would fit into a special site: a mature forest inside  a northern romanian city. Form and Building orientation are designed in order to maximise the use of natural daylight and south orientation. To achieve this, the chosen specific site for implementing the volume was on the upper part of the property, gently blending on the slope of the terrain, with great views over the entire forest and the horizon landscape.

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM in Helsinki, Finland by Spark Architects

 
January 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Spark Architects

DESIGN STATEMENT:

The design aims to function as a translator between the urban condition, the public, and the museum spaces.

The existing urban edges of the city context define a triangular building mass. Lifting the main exhibition space allows the public and the museum programme to float freely underneath, creating a continuous connection between the urban fabric and water.

MOSF (Museum of science fiction) in Washington D.C by Miguel A. Arias

 
January 20th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Miguel A. Arias

The conception of a museum of science fiction is created by the need to expose the exorbitant knowledge that this discipline has developed throughout history. Supported by actual studies, this science includes theories and structure still unconfirmed, making possible validity and creation, any invention of the uncertain or nonexistent.

Luminous Moon-Gate was designed in 2013 for the Taichung City Cultural Center International Competition. The design intent behind the proposed project hints at multiple interpretative roles for Taichung: a portal into heightened consciousness, a lantern of knowledge, a catalyst for metropolitan living, a cultural lung for the body of the city, a gate toward a responsible future, a center regenerative of community life, a landmark for orientation.

SIP m3 House in Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile by Ian Hsü, Gabriel Rudolphy (HSU•RUDOLPHY Studio)

 
January 20th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ian Hsü, Gabriel Rudolphy (HSU·RUDOLPHY Studio)

Aim

The project was to build a 155 m2 house in a very limited time frame, and with a reduced budget. In response we decided to use an efficient construction system and a simplified palette of finishes.

We designed a structure completely based on SIP panels (structural insulated panels), supported on a grid of foundations that intervene minimally in the existing terrain.
