Roof over the Walls of the Old Baños Church in Ecuador by BROWNMENESES

Article source: BROWNMENESES

BACKGROUND

In response to the need to recover Ecuador’s sites listed as cultural heritage, our professional services were hired by the Coordinating Ministry for Heritage and Culture in order to create an architectural design for a roof for the old church of the city of Baños. These sites constitute a key factor for local and regional development, as well as for that of the country in general.

The old church in Baños is located next to the current Municipality and dates from 1788. It was renovated after the earthquake of 1797, but it was finally reduced to ruins by another earthquake in 1949.

Olympia Cinema in Porto, Portugal by NO Arquitectos Lda.

 
April 5th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: NO Arquitectos Lda.

Design a disco club could be frightening and it may become a very naughty challenge. The requirements of the main public and the final purpose is the opposite of my main beliefs on architecture.
Some keywords for a program like this are ‘entertainment’, ‘vanity’, ‘excess’, ‘fantasy’ and somehow ‘performance’ seeking legitimacy.
Austerity and delict may coexist, depending on the critical state of awareness of the facts and its proper resolution, as A. Loos stood for. I’m out to read.

Bcc Bank Caraglio by Studio Kuadra

 
April 5th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Kuadra

The new headquarters are the product of an addition to the overlooking eighteenth century Palazzo del Fucile, left in a total abandonment until 2005, when it was acquired to be renovated by the bank. The project completes the trapezoidal lot defined by the pre-existing structures and creates a new public square called “of Cooperation”.  The entire project is inspired by the pursuit of environmental quality. The exterior spaces work in harmony with the existing; the gate to the fortress is one again given meaning as a privileged element of pedestrian access; the urban furnishings attract people looking for a place to spend time and interact. The square is paved in Luserna stone, typical of the Piedmont region and traditionally employed in local constructions. The design of the external space is instead closely related to the undeniably contemporary and dynamic façade. The ground floor of the new Bank is fully glazed. This same material is used to connect the ground floor with the historic palazzo del fucile. The low rectangular volume, which constitutes a graft between the new and the old, starts out perpendicular only to expand to make room for a reception area hosting another stair. A connective filter mediates the passage between the old and new structures, with the later hosting the bank’s commercial offices.
