Hard to assess in urban term, the river claims the birth of the city while staying detached from it by its particular identity: ubiquitous as a spine, yet barely passable by inhabitants. Inserted in the Thames, undefined as a plot (central but distant), the drifting island embodies a favored observatory by proposing an alternative reality of London. Visitors are given the chance to experience and sense water in an elaborated architecture that merges and exchanges with its environment, like any living organism would unassumingly do.

Light transmitting concrete is known since more then 80 years now and provides – still mostly in the stage of an idea – a lot of attraction to architects, designers and building owners all over the world.

Due to thousands of optical fibers embedded into the concrete, daylight or artificial light pass easily through the concrete panels in any thickness.

Spice Market London

Imagine a wall of spices containing all the colours, flavours and fragrances of Asian cuisine. Imagine a spice cabinet, 2 floors high, 24 metres long and revealing every ingredient the chef will need to create the distinguished Spice Market dishes. This spice cabinet is here, as the centre-piece of the restaurant and starting point for a great dinnertime. When you look up from the street and see through the transparent restaurant façade, you can even see the cabinet from there.

Embassy of Islamic Republic of Iran in London by Daneshgar Architects

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Article source: Daneshgar Architects

The design for the Iran Embassy, Vienna is another approach of a direct connection between architectural design and virtual game engines, that opened an entirely new initial point for modern Islamic architecture. The aim was to extract the uniqueness of traditional Islamic ornaments into a modern language of 3-dimensional shaping by simultaneously preserving traditional proportion patterns. To meet with this ambitious intention a special software was programmed that resulted into the adventurously new Islamic design. The traditional way of treating natural light meets an entirely new way of involving the direct processing of digital data flow into an architectural design.

Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous sailing vessels. After being decommissioned, the historic clipper ship has rested in a dry dock in the centre of historic maritime Greenwich where it served as public museum. Grimshaw Architects in association with Youmeheshe Architects and Designers were commissioned to design a cutting-edge visitor centre within and beneath the ship as part of a 27 million pound conservation programme that required closing the attraction for a complete restoration overhaul.
