Overlooking the Thames, the 1970s townhouse owned by lighting designer Ben Rousseau backs onto a small marina and is located where the London boat race finishes at Chiswick Quay. The design was relatively modern when Ben bought, but the four-storey property still needed a lot of work.

The London Library in St James Square, London by Haworth Tompkins Ltd

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Article source: Haworth Tompkins Ltd

The London Library, founded by Thomas Carlyle in 1841, is the world’s largest independent lending library, with over 1,000,000 books and 8,000 members. Since its inception the Library has evolved into a complex amalgam of spaces that originate from a building sited on the north west corner of St James Square. The building has a discrete formal façade that provides a foil for a more aggregative interior. Over the years additional buildings have been annexed to house the ever-growing needs of the Library and its users, including a book stack built in 1922, and an extension to the north built in 1934; the Anstruther Wing housing rare books, was built at the rear of the 1920s book stack in 1995.

The Architecture of the Dragonfly Wing in London, UK by Maria Mingallon

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Article source: Maria Mingallon

An optimal natural construction, built by a complex patterning process, developed through evolution as a response to force flows and material organization.

Being the dragonfly wing a highly dynamic structure, vibration studies were necessary to obtain realistic deformation patterns and thus, understand its structural behaviour. Ten vibration modes were extracted from the modal analysis performed in GSA. Our eyes have difficulties distinguishing the third, fourth and fifth vibration modes (which occur almost simultaneously), due to the high frequencies exhibited. In our case, slow motion pictures featuring the real flight of the dragonfly, allowed us to identify up to the third mode of vibration by comparison with that calculated in the analysis.

Unravelling Geometry in London by Simone de Gale Architects

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

This project demonstrated the transition of space over a period of 30 years within the area of London Fields to Liverpool Street from a disused rough and un-inhabitable area into a well defined architectural establishment.

Fine plaster formed a conceptual arch representing the adhoc and then planned architectural proposals; an unwound timber section represented time. Entwining the two brought the concept together.

Artist’s Society and High end Residential Flats in Shoreditch, London by Simone de Gale Architects

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

The project provided an excellent design solution for re-modelling a largely dilapidated Victorian building located in Shoreditch by converting the residential dwelling into high end residential flats and to extend at the rear and provide a local artists society for artists and curators within the vicinity. The design for the extension included a contrasting contemporary glazed roof detailing with strong horizontal lines cutting into the verticality of the strong classical Victorian facade.
