Following Transport for London’s (TfL) tender for proposals to improve pedestrian links across the river, Heatherwick Studio and actor and campaigner Joanna Lumley have developed an idea for a new pedestrian ‘Garden Bridge’ across the River Thames; a scheme to connect North and South London with a garden. As one of the greenest cities of its size in the world, this precious new piece of landscape will add to London’s rich and diverse horticultural heritage of heathlands, parks, squares, allotments and community gardens and support many indigenous river edge plant species.

Early Childhood Center in Autun, France by TECTONIQUES

 
December 6th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: TECTONIQUES

The Early Childhood Center in Autun is something of an architectural exception in terms of the production of the agency Tectoniques. A single-storey right-angle building, topped off with a broad, iridescent, reflective cap, it is a surprising presence in the surrounding environment and frames, in a playful and joyful manner, an urban landscape which itself is poorly established.

The Barrancas House is the result of the restoration of a house built in the seventies in Mexico City, which didn´t have any attract at first but had great spatial potential.

U-R-A CHIEF ARCHITECT EVGENI LEONOV COMMENTS ON WINNING THE NOVOPEREDELKINO SUBWAY STATION DESIGN CONTEST.

We are sincerely glad to know that 300,000+ Moscovites have took part in the voting and viewed our work as the best! And what more, we are excited to know that this opinion of citizens was shared by the Contest judges! It is common people that use subway stations, and thus Moscow Mayor Sobyanin’s idea to involve such common people into the decision making process seems really trendy and reasonable.

Rolling Homes in Svencelė, Lithuania by DO architects

 
December 6th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: DO architects

Summer never ends in the rolling homes of Svencelė. These dynamic and playful houses reflect the relaxed atmosphere of their seaside location as well as the progressive and dynamic people who will choose to call them home. The noticeable form of each rolling home facilitates a clever plan layout over three surprisingly efficient levels. Transparent facades allow for uninterrupted views of the surrounding canals and ensure a strong connection, both visual and physical, between the occupant and nature. The closed sides of the buildings, however, maintain privacy among neighbours. Internal space and natural light are maximised by the expanding cylindrical volume of each house. All of the required conveniences for an exclusive modern lifestyle are provided in the eye catching rolling homes, which combined with their stunning natural location create a desirable place to live.
