The Alchemist in Miami Beach, Florida by Rene Gonzalez Architect

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Rene Gonzalez Architect

Calmly perched 60 feet in the air like a floating cloud. Alchemist is a floating glass box inserted into the fifth floor of a parking structure designed by Herzog and de Meuron and Open to the Miami Beach sky. Inside, its reflective materials capture the colors and energy of the surrounding environment and make the space radiate in such a way that it is visible from many vantage points throughout Miami Beach.

Souffle in Montpellier, France by HOLDUP

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: HOLDUP


After a fortuitous sky fall, SOUFFLE landed within Trésoriers de France’s courtyard. The impact between that alien object and the “exhibition space” broke the local stability and equilibrium.

Any person suited to tame the installation will be granted a privileged access to a refuge within, half way between a confessional booth and a teleportation box.

Casa em Sintra in Sintra, Portugal by Regino Cruz Arquitectos

Article source: Regino Cruz Arquitectos

We saw this piece of land, with almost one acre, where we conceived our villa, as a spiritual retreat where the secular cork trees were abundant. Any construction can be built in one or two years, but the privilege of contemplating cork trees like those is the product of at least five generations, more than 150 years in time. So, it’s fair to say that in this case, architecture occupied the remaining space.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 in London, UK by Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA

The Pavilion is floating aluminium, drifting freely between the trees like smoke. The reflective canopy undulates across the site, expanding the park and sky. Its appearance changes according to the weather, allowing it to melt into the surroundings. It works as a field of activity with no walls, allowing views to extend uninterrupted across the park and encouraging access from all sides.

(TOO) MANY COLUMNS in Vienna, Austria by Stephan Sobl

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Stephan Sobl

The epitome of a Hypostyle Hall in my project is a field of massive and fragile columns that define a variation of spatial and volumetric interiors of the terminal. Denser areas of the field create intimate spaces and become areas to rest whereas less dens areas are circulation routes and contain architectural programs.

Boustrophedon Garden in Québec City, Canada by PLANT Architect

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

boustrophedon: Alternating right to left and left to right –
the pattern of oxen tilling the land, or of an ancient form of writing.

The  6.1m x 21.3m Boustrophedon Garden was one of eleven “Ephemeral Gardens” made for Québec City’s year-long 400th anniversary festival in 2008, and were on show from June 16 to September 30, 2008. Gardens were intended to reflect the major festival themes including the indigenous region and its peoples, and the French settlement of Québec. Our response was to draw ideas from Québec’s regional long-lot system – fundamental to creating the distinctive thin-striped pattern of agricultural development in the province – and Samuel de Champlain’s (the great explorer, and founder of Québec City) rigorous agricultural experimentation and recordings done to ensure the survival of the future colonizers of New France in the 17th century.

House of Seven Gardens in Gunma, Japan by Ikimono Architects

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Takashi Fujino / Ikimono Architects

It is a house where three small boys live with young Mr. and Mrs..

They pursued a protected house of the privacy in the large vacant land of the downtown, so we suggested the house with an inner court of the one-storied house. The domain surrounded in a wall is divided in the room of big things and small things 17(11:outside,6:inside). They are connected and are sharp. The house is a domain of the families and it is a personal domain with it. The building will be related how for the heap of the family.
