TDA HOUSE in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, México by Cadaval & Sola-Morales

 
June 21st, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cadaval & Sola-Morales 

Where are the limits of materials? Are they in their apparently implicit properties or in our capacity to expand them?

A fresh house for extreme weather that surpasses the standard limits of comfort of the city-dweller; a low-cost house with minimum maintenance; a house for any number of habitants, flexible in its uses and configuration; a house that can open up completely to the exterior or close in on itself. A house which recycles almost all the remnant materials used for its built; a beach house that can be built in a distant corner of the world.

While the apartment was under construction the bachelor who owns the place fell in love with the large uninterrupted space, but he also wanted to be able to separate the traditional functions. Maintaining large spaces and separating rooms at the same time required a mobile solution. This bachelor pad has 2 more special features: the amazing panorama and the fact that the sun goes around in the space. These also led to unique interior design solutions.

INOTERA HAEDQUARTERS in Taipei, Taiwan by tec DESIGN STUDIO

 
June 19th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: tec DESIGN STUDIO

“Modern day works of architecture look like computer dreams, almost as if the machine were capable of designing a world of self-suffi cient forms on its own, without people being involved. Architecture without people or automatic writing in space, places with no need to actually be inhabited. Equivalent architecture that is self-generated, just like those generators
of random poems, which, given a certain number of words, create combinations forming haiku, which are often actually quite pleasant; likewise, generative music has been around for quite a while already, with a computer taking a certain number of “scenes” to develop a sequence of music lasting minutes or even hours.
