Mosquito Coast Factory in Campbon, France by Tolila+Gilliland

 
March 14th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Tolila+Gilliland

This is not a shed. This is an island. The question posed by the client/artist was the possibility of a cultural island in an industrial site, the concrete fabrication of a utopic site for living, research and production. The architectural response is the result of a research towards a vocabulary of elements which could give meaning to this ambition.

The resultant building footprint reflects these constraints in a manner which ultimately accommodated the Owner’s goals for the house. The house is 2,700 sf and includes all main floor living for day to day functions for aging in place. The upper floor consists of a media area, office, piano and guest bed/bath rooms.

Creating the Nexus for Detroit’s Techtown in Michigan by Payette

Successful innovation districts are not comprehensively designed from the outset; they mature over time, taking advantage of emerging local talent pools and evolving business clusters of excellence. Nexus, a plan to create an innovation district in Midtown Detroit focuses on proximity, talent growth, culture, and urban density – qualities intensely destabilized in the wake of the city’s economic decline.

The design is based on a dynamic field strategy which organizes the new city centre’s program along a gradient of circular and elliptical patterns. A fluid field emerges from the underlying matrix in a series of larger tower extrusions towards the site’s perimeter and intermediate scale pavilion-like structures surrounding the cultural plaza adjacent to an existing decommissioned power station.

Sagrada Família in Catalonia, Spain by Antoni Gaudi

 
March 13th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Wikipedia

The Basilica of the Sagrada Família was the inspiration of a Catalan bookseller, Josep Maria Bocabella, founder of Asociación Espiritual de Devotos de San José (Spiritual Association of Devotees of St. Joseph). After a visit to the Vatican in 1872, Bocabella returned from Italy with the intention of building a church inspired by that at Loreto. The crypt of the church, funded by donations, was begun 19 March 1882, on the festival of St. Joseph, to the design of the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, whose plan was for a Gothic revival church of a standard form. Antoni Gaudí began work on the project in 1883. On 18 March 1883 Villar retired from the project, and Gaudí assumed responsibility for its design, which he changed radically.

The arrangement of objects in a given space or a defined format in order to give meaning to the placement and arrangement of the items,  The result of the relationship between the object and the framework of the artistic creation. A private, family residence in an urban environment. From without, the building does not reveal that it is a home.  It resembles a mold or an artist’s canvas or an almost two dimensional frame within whose area various openings have been placed and which are enveloped with a dynamic system of wooden, linear strips.

Yute’s Warehouse in Barcelona, Spain by Flores Prats Arquitectos

The YUTE’S project is an extension of an existing textile warehouse. The two young clients had bought an old offices building with some storage at its side, and after a few years of use they started to miss storage area, so they though in enlarging it. The original building didn’t have much quality from the architectural point of view, but from the beginning we thought that was better to keep as much as possible of the existing and growing from that, instead of demolishing all and start a new building.
