Article source: Michael Jantzen

The Multi-form Building System is a design study for a prefabricated, modular, kit of parts that can be assembled into many different kinds of curved spaces, in order to accommodate many different needs. The basic components would consist of several different sizes of pre-insulated curved, and flat eco-friendly concrete composite panels. Some of the panels form walls and roofs, and others are used for floors. All of the panels are designed to be bolted together with raceways between them for wiring and plumbing.

South Lowell Apartments in DENVER, COLORADO by Workshop 8 Architecture

Article source: Workshop 8 Architecture 

The S. Lowell Apartments owned by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) was an aging family site that had reached its useful life span. It had leaking pipes causing mold, structural damage and inefficient heat for both the units and domestic hot water. As with any prudent developer, the goal was to use the site for its highest and best use at the most affordable cost. Working together, WORKSHOP8 and Pinkard Construction helped the DHA find a way to obtain 96 units using the existing units and adding 28 additional units, saving them $5M over the estimated cost of tearing the existing structure down and rebuilding 96 new units, the maximum allowed based on City parking requirements.

PAPYRUS Glasses shop in Seoul, South Korea by Archi@Mosphere

Article source: Archi@Mosphere

When buying eyewear, people consider their eyesight along with the design that can best express their image. This shows that an eyewear is a product that fulfills an individual’s need for accurate function and sensibility for beauty. We found that the sales process of an eyewear is quite similar to designing a space due to these factors.

As the only public space on the lake shore, a park has been constructed. Three pavilions (Buildings B,C,D) were planned in the east area of the park.

Hillside House in Suzhou, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

Hillside houses tend to belong to one of the two types, the terraces and the tower. While the tower has a more prominent visual appearance, the stepped profile of the terraces allows residents in the rooms same-level accesses to exterior spaces. This design explores a third type–the combined–that takes advantages from both existing models and minimizes their shortcomings. The new prototype tries to produce a better relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces, recreating the traditional Chinese courtyard space on a hillside site. This is part of the author’s experiment to localize Modern Architecture.

Gable Again House in Champaign, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

A well-proportioned 1957 gabled house was constructed on the north edge of a small park.  While the southern view of maturing park trees visible through the glazed gable end is delightful, an owner of dubious taste in the 1970s constructed a curiously awful Mansard carbuncle-of-an-addition to its west.

This house sits at the tiny corner lot, while facing the tree-lined ginkgo.

Around this dwelling area of the small city block and the narrow road, the human scale that offers friendly atmosphere to the pedestrian from the old days is kept, also thanks to the tree-lined ginkgo.
