Melting Pot in New York City by HartnessVision and YGS

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Article source: HartnessVision and YGS

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.

The Wright at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City by Andre Kikoski Architect, PLLC

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: Andre Kikoski Architect, PLLC

It was both an incredible honor and an exhilarating challenge to create The Wright, the new restaurant at the Guggenheim Museum — which is the first addition to the building’s iconic interior. 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.

Article source: Morphosis Architects

41 Cooper Square, the new academic building for The Cooper Union in New York City, aspires to manifest the character, culture, and vibrancy of both the 150 year-old institution and of the city in which it was founded. The institution remains committed to Peter Cooper’s radically optimistic intention to provide an education “as free as water and air” and has subsequently grown to become a renowned intellectual and cultural center for the City of New York.

The Gallery:

The Sundaram Tagore Gallery is devoted to the exchange of ideas between Western and non-­‐Western cultures. In keeping with its mission, the Gallery sought to bridge dualities when they moved into the ground floor of a manufacturing building in West Chelsea. The new space, which last served as a taxi garage, had to be completely overhauled to serve as a platform for cross-­‐cultural discussion through visual art, poetry, literature, performance art, film and music.

Inhabitable Instalulation Structured in New York City by Light – Shadow

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: Light – Shadow

TWINS is an installation by Lawrence Lek and Onur Ozkaya. Two identical wings are captured at the moment of splitting apart. Floating out of the darkness, the suspended skins form an S-shaped route into an artificial cave, where two projectors cast shadows that draw the viewer towards the enclosure within.

MPD Office in Meat Packing District, New York City by StudioLAB, LLC

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Article source: StudioLAB, LLC

The 3,000 square-foot space was designed for a boutique creative agency located in the Meat Packing District of NYC. Existing cubicle walls that cut up the space and sheltered natural light were demolished to give way to an open plan with a loft like feel. Simple, frameless glass volume enclosures were used for staff offices to allow daylight to permeate through the space along with the white washed floor to maximize brightness. Custom stainless steel framed desks were built along with a custom designed high gloss lacquered reception desk. The clean-lined forms and modern material palette reinforce the company’s minimalist aesthetic approach.

EVERYTHING IS BETTER WITH A POOL

+ Pool is the collaborative initiative of design studios Family and PlayLab to build a floating pool for everyone in the rivers of New York City.  The project was launched with the ambition to improve the use of the city’s natural resources by providing a clean and safe way for the public to swim in New York’s waters.
