Dream Hub Yongsan IBD in Seoul, South Korea by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The site for the Yongsan International Business District is strategically and symbolically located within the heart and soul of Seoul, Korea’s historic capital city and is bordered by the picturesque Nam Mountains to the northeast, the majestic Han River to the southwest, and the extensive Yongsan Park to the east. The Master Plan is designed to take advantage of the perfectly positioned and inspiring site which, according to Feng Shui, has the most desirable orientation with the river in front of the site and the mountains behind. Studio Daniel Libeskind is working with Yongsan Development, Co., Inc. on this project.

Cafe Pavilion in Düren, Germany by architekten martenson und nagel theissen

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Martenson and Nagel Theissen Architecture

Site and Commission

The town cemetery in the Eastern part of Düren has taken on the role of a public park. Before, there was nowhere for visitors to the cemetery to shelter nor for large or small funeral ceremonies to take place. The new cemetery and café pavilion is a space where people can encounter each other when things are out of the ordinary. They can grieve together, exchange memories and look for refuge, which they will find under a multifaceted ceiling landscape.

Newmarket Operations Centre in Canada by RDH Architects

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: RDH Architects

Municipal operations centres rarely attract attention from architects or the public, but the maintenance of our physical environment and infrastructure is critical to the well-being of any community. The design of the Newmarket Operations Centre aims to celebrate these services through the creation of a new local landmark while meeting complex technical requirements in a robust and economical structure. The project embodies a pragmatic rethinking of the municipal operations centre and sets a new national standard for the design of this under-appreciated building type.

EE Jardim Maria Helena III in Sao Paulo, Brazil by +K ARCHITECTS / Keila Costa

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: +K ARCHITECTS / Keila Costa

Jardim Maria Helena III is a Sao Paulo State School, located in the rural area of Barueri, a town in the Greater Sao Paulo metropolitan region. It provides Elementary, Middle and High education to approximately 525 students. The 2,41 acre lot where the 3.391 sqm school is located is a flat terrain surrounded by hills covered by the native Atlantic Forest. Taking these two basic features into consideration – the surrounding nature and the flatness of the lot – the project consists of two parallel two-storey buildings erected longitudinally across the flat terrain, with a large empty central space between them that opens on both sides to the surrounding hilly landscape.

Pegan Petkovšek National Gymnastics Centre in Ljubljana, Slovenia by Enota

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Enota

The National Gymnastics Centre Pegan Petkovšek is part of the comprehensive renovation of Svoboda Sports Park in Ljubljana. It is the first of the three sports halls that are to be built on the western edge of a belt between an access street on one side and a large greened park layout with sports grounds on the other. The building of the gymnastics centre is placed on the northernmost part of this belt. The northern and western edge of the building reference the building line regulated by the spatial acts, which also stipulate the greatest built ratio and the height of the building. The strict urbanistic regulations necessitate a very compact design that allows for little deviation.

House in Melides, Grândola, Portugal by Pedro Reis Arquitecto

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Pedro Reis

The house in Melides, on the southern Alentejo Coast, by Pedro Reis, represents the desire for a holiday house as a getaway from the bustle of a big city. The client made the unusual decision to have an architectural competition between three distinct ateliers, allowing a choice from a wider range of possible solutions. This winning proposal presents a reading of the “drama” of the natural countryside, building it on top of a steep hill relatively protected by the surrounding “rugged topography”.

Topographic House in Barcelona, Spain by MiAS ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: MiAS ARCHITECTS

The house lays along its longitudinal axis: the view on the landscape, towards the sea, is —again— one of the most important values for the project, which unfolds itself and gets mixed with topography. The building is horizontal, elongated, sinuous, catching the landscape, moving delicately in order to obtain the best views, without shutting spaces.
