ISMOF – International School – Museum of Flamenco in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain by MUS Architects (designed using AutoCAD and 3DS Max)

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Article source: MUS Architects

Movements and gestures of dancers are full of expression and tension. Dancers bring the fascinated viewer into an internal world of experience and emotion through the swinging movement of their hips, decorative arrangement of their fingers and smooth vibration of the ornamental frills. Rhythmic and dynamic music transmits the spectator into a world of incredible aesthetic feelings awakening all senses and inflaming the imagination…

….This is how architecture dedicated to the culture of feisty flamenco should look like….

Humboldt Box in Berlin, Germany by KSV Architekten

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Article source: KSV Architekten

The Humboldt Box will accompany the building of the Humboldt Forum/Stadtschloss Berlin as an information and exhibition structure. As a temporary building, it will be dismantled with the completion of the Humboldt Forum after a predicted lifetime eight years. Until then, later users of the Humboldt Forum – among them the National Museums in Berlin, the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation as well as the Central and Regional Library Berlin – will be using the structure to provide a glimpse into their various collections. The Association for the Rebuilding of the Berliner Stadtschloss will be informing visitors about the history of the Berlin Palace, the reconstruction of the palace façade, and the historical courtyard.

Housing Razgledi Perovo in Kamnik, Slovenia by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti

The houses on Perovo stand on an exposed location with an exceptional view of the Kamniško-Savinjske Alps in the background. However the view is not the only characteristic of this location, as the houses represent a dominant feature of the valley when viewed from below. Thus the architectural task at hand brings at least two important challenges. First, it is necessary to design and create a quality living environment for the future residents, and second, the project provides an opportunity to redefine the look of the settlement on Perovo which has a rather heterogeneous and inharmonious layout with its scattered individual houses.

Drevviken House in Farsta, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Arkitektkontor (designed using ArchiCAD)

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Arkitektkontor AB

Only ten minutes from Stockholm centre lies this piece of surprisingly un-touched natural landscape hidden. The lot is directly on the Drevviken lake with its own little cove. The crescent of the cove follows the slightly bowl-shaped land that also gave the shape of the house. The house is itself a kind of up-turned crescent with foundation and roof lines in parallel curves. With three different floor levels inside, the land could be left un-touched for the building. So the sculptural quality of the house follows the nature of the site rather than being a gesture.
