Ipervasi in Nicosia, Cyprus by Constantinos Kalisperas Architectural Studio

We live in times of crisis.
The globalised world, especially as it was formed after 9/11, is beset today, more than ever, by economic, political, religious, ethnic and social crises, but also by a deep existential identity crisis.

The 2008 bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, once the fourth largest investment bank in the United States, was a clear sign that “something is rotten in the State of Denmark”1and set fire to the lurking financial crisis worldwide. A crisis spreading in
a chain reaction – possibly the most complex one since the Second World War and quite different from the 1929 stock market crash – the consequences of which are still felt today, especially within the European territory.

This project arose in answer to the requirements of the basic guidelines established in a specific modification to the local development framework. The brief was to replace the homes which had been expropriated to enlarge the Trade Fair Area (Pavilions 5 and 7). The new homes will be located facing Ciencias Street, and the objective is to create an internal space which will be protected by the new pavilions and the multifamily apartment block.

Font Del Roure Nursery And Primary School In Barcelona, Spain

January 8th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ONL Arquitectura

In this case there were several prefabricated modules already on the site, which helped determine the location of the school. In contrast to other Nurseries and Primary Schools we did in the past, we had to make this design more compact, replacing the large central patio for a regular series of patios to enlarge the visual perception of the ground floor passages, and to create a place where the two different age groups could come together.
