Cloudhaus in New York City by Art Meadow

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Article source: Matthew Hoffman

CLOUDHAUS takes the rich history and deep meaning associated with Sukkahs and reimagines their role in today’s history.

The divine shelter of the Clouds of Glory elevated the Jews to a level of pure holiness, or Kedusha, and the Sukkah does the same. During Sukkot we are not merely reminded of the Clouds of Glory and our potential to attain Kedusha, we are temporarily elevated to that very same level.

Treehaus in New York City by Art Meadow

PLAY is the 21st century equivalent of what WORK was to the industrial age.

TREEHAUS is a breakthrough playspace that rethinks one of the most iconic and universal childhood activities – the tree house – by creating a 3-dimensional, immersive structure that children climb over, on, and inside of, allowing for a completely unstructured and child-directed free play.

Bodega in New York City by Art Meadow

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Article source: Matthew Hoffman

Historically, bodegas have served as social gathering centers for neighborhoods, going far beyond super markets and grocery stores by offering informal services like jobs connections and advice on finding apartments. Unfortunately, New York City’s bodegas have been closing by the hundreds over the past few years, not being able to compete with big chain stores like CVS and Duane Reade. Business Insider published a startling statistic that “in 2010 on a 33-block stretch of Broadway alone there were 137 store closures.”

Designed for a writer and a film editor, the Loft of Frank and Amy is a bare, wide-open play space in New York City’s gritty Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. Located in a former industrial building, the loft occupies an entire floor with full window exposure and dynamic urban views on three sides. The design enhances this industrial context by posing new construction as a single sculptural intervention within this existing space.

MVTP (Metropolitan Vertical Theme Park) by Ju-Hyun Kim, AIA

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Article source: Ju-Hyun Kim, AIA

Idea of MVTP(Metropolitan Vertical Theme Park) started with raising 2 questions:

01. Do we still need to keep the century-old prototype of (subway-located) theme parks?

Suburb-located theme parks have been by-product of automobile-centered society. Indescribably horrible traffic congestion and huge hard-scaped (Hot asphalt) parking lots and has become a constant problem in the towns where these theme parks have located. Theme parks such as Six Flags attracted all kinds of undesirable sprawl to suburbs. In the contemporary society where zero-car, zero carbon is highly valued, these theme parks have been located at the opposite side of eco-sensitive society.

New York City AIDS Memorial Park Competition

The combined site is experienced through the 2 ramped passageways,  that begin and end at the same place but remain separate. “Health “–  embodied by the verdant park, benches, and vegetation– surrounds  “Infection”–symbolized by an isolated ramp. The two realities are visible  to each other but separated by a glass enclosure.

We sought to create a contemporary response to complement the building with an extremely modest budget and 1,600 square feet in which to work.

The Standard in Manhattan, New York City by Ennead Architects

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: Ennead Architects

Located in Manhattan’s Hudson riverfront Meatpacking District, the hotel responds to its context through contrast: sculptural piers, whose forms clearly separate the building from the orthogonal street grid, raise the building fifty-seven feet off the street, and allow the horizontally-scaled industrial landscape to pass beneath it and natural light to penetrate to the street.
