A HOUSE FOR ART COLLECTOR in Geneva, Switzerland by ChristianDupraz Architects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: ChristianDupraz Architects

I’d like a massive house, safe and fragrant like my childhood. I will make you a sheltered house like the ones I love.” It is through an on going conversation between the architect and client that the realisation of this house was achieved. On an exceptional site, along the edge of the centre of Geneva, this white house, with its pure geometry, is a part in itself. If the square plan is the basis for its composition, it surprises through its malleability and functional complexity.

Three-in-one sports center in Visp, Switzerland by savioz fabrizzi architectes

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Article source: savioz fabrizzi architectes  

The valais canton and the visp vocational college had a sports centre constructed at one end of the existing college complex.

The building is a single, compact structure consisting of the sports halls part, which is orthogonal, and the service part, which is lower and whose shape is adapted to the outline of the existing buildings. thus, the design adds a new dynamic to the dialogue between the building and its surroundings; empty spaces become paths, public areas, entrances. the building’s footprint maximises the space available for outdoor sports fields.

Greenhouse Botanical Garden in Grueningen, Switzerland by idA

Article source: idA 

The new pavilion at the botanical garden at Grueningen relates strongly to its context. The design was inspired by the surrounding forest, not the built environment. Both the formal vocabulary and the structural concept derive from nature. The pavilion is conceived to harmonize with and expand the forest.

WSDG Acoustic Expertise Aids Comprehensive Restoration Effort

SOLOTHURN, SWITZERLAND:  Begun in 1762, and completed in 1773, the St. Ursen Cathedral has long-served as the focal point for both worship and tourism in Switzerland’s most significant baroque town. In early January 2011, a mentally disturbed person set a fire which wreaked massive damage throughout the Cathedral’s 2000 + sq. ft. congregation hall.  When the smoke cleared, the entire white/gray lime rock interior, which had shone like marble for centuries, was encrusted with a foul grayish residue.  The Cathedral was closed to the public and a plan for restoration developed.

Bada Bing in Montreux, Switzerland by Bureau A

James Gandolfini died on the 19th of June 2013, a few weeks before the 47th Montreux Jazz Festival. He was the leading character of one of HBO’s best series: The Sopranos. He embodied the complete range of clichés of the Italian American mafia developed beforehand by great film directors such as Martin Scorsese or Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfellas in 1990 for the first, The Godfather in 1972 for the second).
