The project of the Laayoune Technology School in Morocco is part of the decentralization policy of universities centers in the different regions of the country. The program consists on teaching spaces(classrooms, workshops, amphitheater), library, administrative offices, teacher’s offices and services (maintenance spaces, staff accommodation etc.). The site, quite away from the city center, generated aneed of“urbanity” through an organization around an axial scheme, and thus providing a comprehensive and clear reading and at the same time a diversity of ambiences.

Loud Shadows in Terschelling, The Netherlands by Plastique Fantastique

 
July 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Plastique Fantastique

LOUD SHADOWS is a collage made by artists coming from different backgrounds: dance, music, architecture. The architecture of Plastique Fantastique is monumental, yet mobile, soft and transparent. It’s ephemeral skin influences the environment as much as its inner space offers a lucid view outwards. It is the preferred place to merge dance (LeineRoebana) and music (Kate Moore, The Stolz), and challenge the perception of time.

Circular Pavilion Abn Amro in Amsterdam, the Netherlands by de Architekten Cie.

 
July 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: de Architekten Cie.

The new ABN AMRO Pavilion is unique in the Netherlands: the first built example of a purely sustainable and circular design. The main thought behind circular design is that the impact of the building causes the least possible reduction of the world’s resources. The circular economy is waste-free and resilient and that is the exact idea behind this Pavilion. Right from the start the recyclability of all materials used were taken into account.

Berkshire Mountain House in Alfred, Massachusetts by Tsao & McKown Architects

 
July 9th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Tsao & McKown Architects

Nestled into the tree line at the top of a gentle rise, the house folds and unfolds to take advantage of sweeping panoramic views, and wraps upon itself to form an intimate courtyard against the forest’s edge.

The building is conceived as movement through a Fibonacci spiral. The resulting plan allows a graceful progression through the rooms, spiraling up to the highest point, a cozy aerie. The architecture considers the qualities of the light and views throughout the day and seasons, and offers optimal arrangements for different experiences, from breakfast, to midday recreation, to star-gazing from bed.

Electrotheatre Stanislavsky in Moscow, Russia by Wowhaus

 
July 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Wowhaus

Objective:

To transform the elongated building of the former cinema into a contemporary theatrical platform in which any part – be it the hall, foyer or staircase – can be used by a stage director while simultaneously conforming to the demands involved in restoration of an architecturally significant building as well as the needs of modern technology, which are often mutually exclusive.

Solution:

The main principle of the «Electrotheatre» concept is the transformability of spaces and the openness of internal processes. Mobile barriers divide the technical and public zones, and the functions of these zones can be interchangeable.
