Nunnmps – Brief Description

Nunnmps, Chicago is an information technology system development, security and service office. The site is located in South Chicago, bordering Lake Michigan.

The project consists of a 50,000 square meter design and research studio in addition to surrounding public open space and natural landscape. One third of the building encompasses the design and research studios and support areas. Since the studio projects are of a strategic nature and highly confidential, the building is lifted above ground, high above the crowns of trees, floating like clouds, overlooking the distant skyline. The remaining two thirds of the office space exist within its subterrain. It accommodates a reception area and a large open administration office with mushroom-like cores penetrating the ground to connect both parts of the Nunnmps.

Great Pier of the Great Lakes

Chicago is known for its penchant to “make no little plans” as Daniel Burnham memorably pronounced over a century ago.  And so today, Chicago’s most popular attraction, Navy Pier is revisiting Burnham’s legacy as it reimagines its potential as a world class cultural destination.  To help realize Navy Pier’s ambitious design goals, a team led by !melk, UrbanLab and HOK has proposed a series of dramatic ideas to reconceptualize Chicago’s preeminent exclamation point extending from the Great Lakes to the world.

How do we build something that modulates space and changes the circulation path of an existing architectural environment by using almost no material?  What does it mean to fill space with volume that is on the threshold of absence?

Coupet Enclosure in Chicago, Illinois by Studio IDE

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Article source: Studio IDE

This project mandated the division of an awkwardly-configured bedroom into two distinct sleeping quarters.  Because of the open character of the loft space and the existing tall ceilings, we approached the solution with the understanding that the new configuration would ultimately result in relatively small yet tall spaces.   In light of this, we chose to bring down one’s visual perception of the spaces and created a separation which allowed for one dedicated (existing) window within each of the new rooms.

Urban Food Production in Chicago, Illinois by Atelier Zündel & Cristea

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Zündel & Cristea

GLOBAL OVERVIEW

The socio-cultural development of the past century has compromised the notion of “progress”. Deforestation, topsoil depletion, excesses of industrial and financial globalisation, biodiversity loss and incessant pressures of population growth on the planet’s limited resources have placed the human being in a condition of rupture with his ecological role as species.

Poetry Foundation in Chicago, Illinois by John Ronan Architects

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: John Ronan Architects

The Poetry Foundation is comprised of a building in dialogue with a garden created through erosion of an implied volume as described by the L-shaped property boundary. The garden interlocks with the building and is conceived as another “room,” part of the building’s slowly-unfolding spatial sequence revealed space by space, not unlike a poem is revealed line by line.
