Topology of Resilience

On November 9, 2013 the devastating Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, causing more than 5,000 deaths and destroying the homes and cities of millions. Natural disasters due to climate change have become extremely commonplace all over the world. We can’t do much to stop them, but as architects we can help design and build stronger and more resilient buildings to withstand them. As part of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) by OOAc in support of the Typhoon Haiyan victims, the objective of this project is to generate a design concept for a typhoon-resilient school to be implemented in the affected area of the Philippines, where sadly over 4,500 schools have been destroyed by the massive storm.

House in Frontenex by Charles Pictet architecte FAS SIA

 
May 13th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Charles Pictet architecte FAS SIA

The subject of the project is an old 18th century manor with several valuable buildings, including an orangery built in 1816. The orangery is an integral element of the project and contains part of the living space. The entire manor has an orthogonal design, with the one exception of the orangery, with its diagonal alignment towards the south-west. The volume of the new building behind it mediates between the two geometries.

The award winning Le Monde winery nestles between the sea and the hills of Friuli in Western Italy, an area steeped in traditional wine culture.

The focus of the wine tasting room project was to create a space devoted to sensory experience and that ensured a constant visual connection with the beautiful surrounding vineyard, via the existing gallery windows.
To enhance this connection two large tasting tables extend in line with the rows of vines that stretch as far as the eye can see outside.

A housing development that seeks to optimize the living conditions of each of its cells. The whole is broken down to prioritize the meeting with the domestic rather than insisting on the abstraction of the idea.

Following the 2012 earthquake that struck Emilia Romagna a competition was announce to rebuild a destroyed school gymnasium in Massa Finalese.

The site, which is located in the north-east side of a school park, is the border between the urban area and the country side, suggesting the new building to be the new “connecting tool” between these two realities.

The main focus is to create a structure able to soften the urban/country “boundary” and to characterize the whole of the school park as well:

LUIS VIALE –PATERNAL BUENOS AIRES ARGENTINA by Nidolab arquitectura

The Project was based  on a house built in the year  1918, located in La Paternal, a neighbourhood that still preserves the original grid of the city caracterized by small residential buildings, that managed to stay unaffected by the great movement of the city.

The owners, a very young couple, were searching for a new private room that would be built on an existing roof terrace, leaving the ground floor for the common areas, a recoding studio, a small showroom and a working space for a psychiatrist.
