Honoré de Balzac high school in Castelnau-le-Lez, France by NBJ architectes

 
July 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com 

The principal idea in the site of the high school Honoré de Balzac de Castelnau-le-Lez  was to reconquer space by a better distribution of constructions in order to create a scale of user-friendliness, as well in the buildings as in the outdoor areas. The first action was to reconsider the current landscape, to bring a functionality to external installations thus conveying true space qualities and to create a total logic of circulation within the site. The constitution of this new urbanity becomes the base of a shared and porous space, generator of exchanges comparable with the strategic constitution of a campus. The nature becomes the vector of a new contemporary urbanity organized around inter-connected buildings.

ENEL Pavilion for EXPO 2015 by Piuarch

A virtual volume made with 650 polycarbonate vectors expressing the innovation of the smart grid

The Concept

In designing the ENEL Pavilion for Expo 2015, Piuarch wanted to express the concept of “energy sharing” in an architectural theme. Not through a “building-container,” but rather with the creation of a virtual volume: a place, generated by a grid onto which 650 polycarbonate vectors are grafted. The arrangement of these constantly changing, illuminated vertical elements defines the volume that encompasses within itself a series of other volumes and green courtyards.

THE NEWTOWN SCHOOL in Kolkata, West Bengal by Abin Design Studio

 
July 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Abin Design Studio 

This school façade project came to us at a stage when the construction of the 2 academic blocks was already underway. The blocks were rather generic, with 6 floors of classrooms, labs, and other facilities arranged towards the periphery around matching central courtyards. Our brief was to work within these existing parameters to make a school. So we developed a design program in terms of circulation, movement, ventilation, classrooms and other concerns.”

This project is for a singlefamily house at village of Varpelev in the southeast part of Zealand, Denmark.

The brief was to design a 150 m2 home for a family of four persons. The overall main idea, very early in the sketching phase, was to reinterpret the traditional Danish white painted three parted farmhouses from the 18th century which are very common in the surrounding landscape of Varpelev.

WSDG’s Club NEO in Basel, Switzerland

Article source: Walters Storyk Design Group (WSDG)

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND:  NEO, is a dazzling new club/bar/restaurant located on the ground floor of an upscale high-rise in Zurich’s burgeoning Europaallee Sector.  Although the rapidly gentrifying area is adjacent to the Swiss Railroad Mainstation, the local residents’ chic demographic makes late night clamor particularly objectionable.  Sensitive to potential neighborhood backlash, the venue owners resolved to deflect these latent problems before they became an issue.  Their solution?  Engage Walters-Storyk Design Group-WSDG.

Praça das Artes Performing Arts Centre in São Paulo, Brazil by Brasil Arquitetura

Article source: Brasil Arquitetura

The Performing Arts Centre Praça das Artes is situated in the centre of São Paulo, an area that has suffered from economic decline and urban degradation for decades. The new complex is inserted into a series of interconnected formerly underused or vacant spaces and can be accessed from three sides of the urban block. The historic building of the former Dramatic and Musical Conservatory and the façade of the Cairo Cinema have been incorporated into the complex and thus gained new significance by providing important physical and symbolic references to the past.

Urban Renovation in Lormont, France by LAN Architecture

 
July 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  LAN Architecture

The Génicart district, located near the centre of Lormont and adjacent to the town’s main urban and interurban network, consists primarily of collective and social housing. Comprising 10% of the  city’s municipal territory, it accommodates roughly 10,500 people and 50% of Lormont’s population. This ambitious urban and social renovation project is organized around four different residences, located on the South sector of the district: Saint-Hilaire (387 units), Leroy (114 units), La Boétie (105 units) and Villon (104 units). The project has established a residentialisation programme. The term “residentialisation” originated in the 2000s and follows the first phase of rehabilitation of housing estates operated from the 80s. Residentialization responds pragmatically to the constraints of collective housing for large populations set by the investors. In this programme, housing units are gradually distinguished from one another, and public space follows suit. Through the use of pathways and a more progressive hierarchy of public and private, the presence of unused collective space is reduced. The pitfall of residentialization lies in its premise. It is an impoverishment of shared spaces, a homogeneous privatization of ground against the very principle of large sets: the free plan. The risk is to strengthen the withdrawal, and return once again to the margins of neighborhoods. The project area Génicart attempts to reconcile the redefinition and the free plan. Taking advantage of every opportunity offered by the need to intervene on the buildings, the project follows an overall strategy of making urban blocks more comprehensive through architecture, whilst keeping the landscape open. This is achieved through gradually transforming public and private spaces such as green areas, sports facilities, and new pathways into an entirely pedestrian area.
