Pegs Junior Educational Building in Australia by McBride Charles Ryan

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

The new Junior Boys building at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School sits on a primarily residential street. The building derives its form from the silhouette of a typical Australian heritage home which is extruded as a solid form to house the building’s functions.

Swamp Hut in Newton, Massachussets by Moskow Linn Architects

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

The site is a ten acre swamp in Newton, MA of which only 1/8 of an acre is “buildable” by right. All construction materials were taken in by hand along a dirt path to minimize site disturbance. The Swamp Hut has no vehicular access.

The Swamp Hut is designed to sit lightly upon the land. Four huts surround a central deck creating a protective enclosure. Each building component has distinct characteristics appropriate to its use.

Kaohsiung Port and Cruise Service Center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan by REISER + UMEMOTO

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

For the Kaohsiung Port Terminal, we propose a dynamic 3-dimensional urbanism that takes advantage of the site’s unique lateral positioning with respect to the city grid.  Existing public pedestrian flows along the proposed elevated boardwalk can be amplified, rather than interrupted by creating a continuous elevated public esplanade along the waterfront. Cruise and ferry functions, meanwhile, are located just below the public level and are kept distinct to maintain secure areas for departing/arriving passengers.
