New research and development centre for Hankook Tire breaks ground in Korea by Foster + Partners

Article source: Foster + Partners

A ground-breaking ceremony has been held for the Hankook Technodome, a state-of-the-art new research and development facility for one of the world’s leading tyre manufacturers. The new centre is located in Daejeon, at the heart of Asia’s ‘silicon valley’, and will provide an inspirational place to work, with light filled offices, state-of-the-art laboratories and dynamic social spaces to nurture a culture of openness and innovation.

The design of the new centre is rooted in analysis of the organisation. Rather than a conventional arrangement of offices above double-height testing areas, the building is arranged as five fingers, with parallel office and industrial units – this dynamic, integrated arrangement is highly flexible and promotes visual connections and interaction between the offices, laboratories and different divisions. Breaks between each finger draw daylight into the heart of the floor plate.

This house is the product of the renovation of a boating warehouse by a large pond near Orleans.

Facing the forest, wooden blades hide the house from a public footpath. The second facade literally hangs over the water, with each of its rooms opening onto a landscape where high timber trees mix with reflections in the water.

A compact home for a fiber artist and her young family, the Redaction House sits on a narrow lot on a small suburban lake, surrounded by prosaic spec homes crowding the shoreline.

The building occupies a suburban infill site widely considered too small and too confined to accommodate a house for a family of five and provide acceptable levels of privacy and views.

Ground at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut by Bentel and Bentel Architects

Article source:  Bentel and Bentel Architects

The new ‘Ground’ cafe, at Yale’s Marcel Breuer-designed Becton School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (‘SEAS’), serves not only to create social cohesion among faculty and students of the engineering school, but also to encourage interaction between and among members of other departments in the University. In the design, the firm engaged the unadorned poured-concrete volume of this former seminar room by layering a palette of walnut planks, perforated aluminum, and cleft bluestone over the walls, floor, and ceiling of the space. The original concrete surfaces are intentionally visible through, and are highlighted by, the veils of the material intervention out of respect for Breuer’s unique exploration in his design of the textural possibilities of a single material.

FASHION[ING] OBJECTS is an instrument for space, light, and threshold that creates maximal impact with minimal means by arranging and reconfiguring everyday objects in an unexpected and extraordinary way. It is an original backdrop installation piece designed and fabricated for an the annual premier fashion event in Austin, Texas held in September 2012. Beginning with the simple idea of an Erwin Hauer inspired screen, the intention for the backdrop was to veil the models as they emerged from backstage, to dapple light as well as to convey a sense of depth and movement beyond.
