Residence in KURAKUEN in Hyougo, Japan by NRM-Architects Office

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

This building is fixed on the site so that most construction is so. It has a site and interaction necessarily that it is fixed on the site. I formed the frame of the building by talking with a site and schemed that the interaction took you as construction, and it was generated good environment.  I do not see the site where this building stands from front road at an extreme flag-shaped site.

Cornucopia Sukkah by Bill Caplan

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

The building of a Sukkah, a temporary dwelling and gathering place to celebrate the harvest, is governed by many ancient parameters with biblical origin.  It must have two full walls and another that is at least partial, offer protection from the wind, and support a roof laid from organic matter called schach.  The schach must provide more than fifty percent daytime shade, yet beckons the stars at night.  Proportions, size, material, composition and attachment are all regulated within strict limits.  The Cornucopia Sukkah is an architectural form that remains true to its tradition while generating a fluid parametric interpretation.

Hydra Skyscraper by Vlastic, Vuk Djordjevic, Ana Lazovic and Milica Stankovic

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

What would happen when the ultimate source of energy could be free for all humans, when it could be possible to replace all fossil fuels with   alternative ? In an effort to reduce global climate change, we made a facility which can produce the most rewarding alternative sources of sustainable energy – Hydrogen . As we know hydrogen does not exist alone in nature, and it is a very important element because it can be used as a non-toxic energy storage and transport medium. Hydrogen can provide a promising method to help the World to achieve energy independence, make strides in environmental stewardship, and develop a thriving economy.

Floating Observatories in Taiwan by Dorin STEFAN’s DSBA, Mihai CARCIUN and

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

“FLOATING OBSERVATORIES” Proposal by Dorin STEFAN’s DSBA, Mihai CARCIUN and wins the “Taiwan Tower” Conceptual International Competition

“Starting from the ‘geographical’ visual of Taiwan which is an island resembling a leaf we have developed the concept of the technological tree: we have designed 8 spatial leaves (with eight being a propitious number in the local culture) in the form of zeppelinlike elevators which glide up and down the ‘tree trunk” and which serve the purpose of observation decks / belvedere. I have called these elevators floating observatories because each has a nacelle which can take 50 to 80 people; they are selfsustained by helium balloons and are built from lightweight materials (borrowed from the spacecraft industry) and are wrapped in a lastgeneration type of membrane (PTFE) and they glide vertically on a track positioned vertically in a strong electromagnetic field” Dorin STEFAN, Principal, DSBA*

House of Trough in Hokkaido, Japan by Jun Igarashi Architects

Monday, March 14th, 2011

The site is located in the east of Hokkaido. And this architecture is planned for husband and wife in flagpole site form. Surroundings this site, next house is in east side, and next house’s garage is in north side. It has no need to view surroundings with work place of iron factory in south side. And the garden of next house in the west, but it is difficult to predict how changing with this place would finally feel. This house was designed while considering climate environment and surrounding context.

Museum of Memory and Tolerance, Mexico City by Arditti + RDT Architects

An Architectural Space for the Coexistence Among All People

The history of humanity is tarnished with episodes that have catalyzed the most incomprehensible acts to the human mind…the extermination of mankind by mankind.

The Museum of Memory and Tolerance highlights these irrationalities and provides information advocating peaceful and respectful coexistence among all people. It is therefore of great significance that the conceptual design of the building relates to its context.
