The Circle at Zurich Airport in Kloten, Switzerland by Zaha Hadid Architect

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architect

The River ‘flows’ as a continuous curve on one side, as a convex erosion on the other – within, ‘interior urbanism’ promotes interaction between different program elements, incorporating three major ‘canyon’ voids to define entry points and circulation routes. A top level open plan streetscape houses retail, cafes and restaurants.

Fitness Park Einstein in St Gallen, Switzerland by Damir Masek (designed with FormZ)

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article source: Damir Masek

The heart of the five story Fitness Park Einstein beats as a hovering water crystal pool, flooded with the light of the overlying atrium. Above the three-story cascade steps of the fitness center floats the transparent and/or translucent basin. This focal point motivates the fitness customers, and tells of a promise, which will redeem. The horizontal, translucent screen under pool’s transparent, acrylic bottom can be used flexibly.

Lake Houses in Zurich, Switzerland by E2A (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: E2A Eckert Eckert Architekten

An existing late classical home (Villa Sonnenhof), marks the slight bend of the Seestrasse as it follows the shores of the lake. Along the villa, the former park stretched to the street above and opened dramatic vistas to the lake. Future densification on this site needed to offer views of the lake equally to all parties, but to avoid seeing their neighbors.

Plantahof Auditorium in Landquart, Switzerland by Valerio Olgiati

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Article source: Valerio Olgiati

The placement of the new auditorium creates a new central square within the overall structure of the Plantahof agriculture school. The high façade holds together the new piazza.

The inner space of the auditorium lies in half-light. Two windows facing each other define the inner space and allow for a view from the new piazza towards the axis of the Prättigau valley. A thin, dark coloured, concrete wall stretches over the pillars and beams like a tent. These elements are supported outside the building by the abutments. The structure combines in equal measure a frame and a solid construction. The result is a hybrid of pillars and walls, expressing an architectural concept and lending the building character.

Chalet in Chateau-d’Oex, Switzerland by RBCH architectes

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: RBCH architectes

Situated in a residential area in Château d’Oex, this new building was thought as a replacement for the former house whose size and outer layer failed to meet present day standards for a family home. The structure of this new building is made of poles and beams as a reference to the local traditional chalet. This structure also offers flexibility in the working of the outer layer as prefabricated wooden units fit into the pole structure. This is like a game and allows both a quick and cost-effective construction. Fir tree wood was mostly used as it is the main local building material. It allows a homogenous reading and emphasises the brightness of the inner structure.

Neues Stadt-Casino in Basel, Switzerland by Zaha Hadid Architects

More projects by Zaha Hadid

An L-shaped volume that gives a new identity to the Stadt-Casino, enclosing the existing music hall and connecting it with the adjacent Hans Huber Hall. This homogeneous, plastic volume is differentiated and articulated by bulging and inverting its surface, enclosing ‘foreign bodies’ and hollowing it out to create a generous entrance hall.

The façade of the old music hall and the Hans Huber Hall create the main façade for the Neues Stadt Casino along the Steinenberg. The continuation of the two buildings, highlighted by a cut or slice, allows the front surface of the new building to become cohesive whilst the new volume remains sufficiently distanced from the existing building.

New kindergarten and multi-purpose hall in Lugano, Switzerland by ABCGarchitettura and Lopes Brenna architetti

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Article source: ABCGarchitettura and Lopes Brenna architetti

The proposal for the new kindergarten and multipurpose hall provides to rearrange the lot in question via a solution that has its strength in simplicity, bridging the gap to the free sides of the area: the volume of the school is supported throughout via Nola, while the cube-shaped multipurpose hall marks the public entrance into via Ferri. In this way the volumes effectively reply both to its urban intensity, as public buildings in connection with the city, and to its function of prodrome respect to the internal vacuum. The volume of the school follows the type of its urban surroundings: set back from the road edge for the access and oriented along north-south axis to support the development of the future green line that will go from here till the lake of Lugano. The multipurpose hall chairs the empty neighborhood public gardens by adding to its collective function the one of gate of the park.
