Brief

# “The clients, a couple from New York wanted a holiday home in the Southern hemisphere for summer vacations. Aware of contemporary architectural trends, they requested a sculptured building with clean horizontal lines, large areas of glass and screens creating a space that is ‘open as well as private’. Their brief was a 2-bedroomed home with indoor / outdoor living spaces and a studio to be used in their photographic and film related occupations,” says Project Partner, Stefan Antoni.

Monterrey is well known for its imposing-scale mountains. Located in Chipinque, part of the Sierra Madre Oriental, this project offers unique panoramic views of the valley and the surrounding nature.

Built in the 70s the building complex was intended to provide affordable housing in the area. With only 61 square meters (~657 sqft) the goal was to update the nearly 40-year old concrete structure by reorganizing the layout and rethinking natural light, materials and finishes.

Article source: 4PLIUS architects

The idea behind this project was simple and symbolic at the same time: books, the essence of knowledge, communication and cultural tradition. As the function of a public library requires, it is open to everyone – and that is why the shape of a transparent cube, a shining body at night has been chosen. As if books follow the precept of the first Lithuanian book inviting “take me and read me”…

Lingzidi Bridge in Shangzhou, China by Rural Urban Framework (RUF)

 
May 14th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Rural Urban Framework (RUF)

As part of the country’s urbanisation scene, China’s infrastructure construction leads to myriad consequences that significantly impact not only the economic conditions of the respective locality, but also its existing social matrices. One example, highway infrastructure, undoubtedly brings to remote areas increased accessibility and new employment opportunities. Yet at the same time, this top-down planning approach often overlooks the specific needs of the local area. Construction of a new highway in southern Shaanxi Province required the destruction of hundreds of local bridges. This project involves the design of a pedestrian bridge in Lingzidi Village to service the disrupted network.

Jeju Ball in South Korea by Kengo Kuma & Associates

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

When I visited Jeju Island for the first time, I was so much inspired by this dark, porous volcanic rock and wanted to translate its soft and round touch into architecture. As the result, the entire house emerged as a round black stone. From distance, the house appears like a single pebble and when you are close, you notice that many parts of the house are of the black stone.
