MADRhybrID in Madrid, Spain by Influx_Studio

The San Francisco el Grande park project in Madrid is a particularly complex challenge where several critical constraints have to be merged in a balanced solution. The intricate topography, the need for public and private construction in a highly historical place and the various and incompatible claims of different actors (the city, the church, the land owner and citizens) are just some of ingredients of this project. The different positions and needs claimed by the various groups of actors who participate in shaping such a strategic and emblematic site as this seams to reach a breaking point: the Capital had to choose between building an ambitious program of public and private equipments and facilities, or as claimed by the neighbors, to build an urban park, both undoubtedly necessary for urban life in downtown Madrid. The answer has to keep in mind that the intervention is meant to complete the unfinished urban tissue of a central and most exceptional historical fabric.

Office 04 – Tribal DDB office in Amstelveen, Netherlands by i29 l interior architects

Tribal DDB Amsterdam is a highly ranked digital marketing agency and part of DDB international, worldwide one of the largest advertising offices. i29 interior architects designed their new offices for about 80 people.

With Tribal DDB our goal was to create an environment where creative interaction is supported and to achieve as much workplaces as possible in a new structure with flexible desks and a large open space. All of this while maintaining a work environment that stimulates long office hours and concentrated work. As Tribal DDB is part of an international network a clear identity was required, which also fits the parent company DDB. The design had to reflect an identity that is friendly and playful but also professional and serious. The contradictions within these questions, asked for choices that allow great flexibility in the design.

Fez Remix by Maxwan

The idea of preservation of the site is less about the buildings themselves and more about the preservation of the programs in the buildings. The spaces are designed to allow users to see first hand the work of the craftsmen and women, in terms of the actual crafts, the process of making the goods, and the application of the materials as surface materials in public space.

First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ in Rochester, Michigan by Constantine George Pappas AIA designed using AutoCAD

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Article source: Constantine George Pappas AIA

This project consists of a new 375 seat sanctuary addition with associated  lower level community spaces. The total size of the new addition is 14,000 sq.ft.,  7000 sq.ft. each floor. The concept is based on the cross sectional articulation of a box,  and how to manipulate light into the interior of the worship space. The box, or church is divided into a series of tiers and clerestories. The first, representing the support area and  seating of the Church. The second tier represents the Chancel or religious activity area of the Church. The third tier, created above the pipe organ platform, allows northern light to spill onto the pipe organ and Chancel area. Each tier is structurally detailed to strengthen its space below.
