Ibermutuamur Building in Murcia, Spain by DENORTE

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: DENORTE

“A building stands in all its complexity of lines on the eye. Sometimes, given its size and proximity of the spectator who contemplates it is impossible to perceive its volume, forcefulness, and therefore perceive it as a symbol. Because we want buildings without coats, without haughtiness emblematic, not exorbitant budgets, buildings that speak of the people who make the company and that they relate well with others that are not part of it. Buildings, quietly, transcend, because charisma in the design found in those forms that survived their function. Hence, beyond the building’s skyline symbol, the building show, free avant-garde building is the building that blends with the company that hosts and the surrounding environment, with the brand it represents. It is the building that never dies, because it becomes an icon of popular ideas …”

“Architecture is petrified music”

What would the noted german writer, Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, author of this famous phrase, say if he saw the architetonic project of this residence prepared by Faleiro Guerra arquitetura? Poem in accurate traits, perhaps.

Rich in details. Sofisticated architecture. Imponent with its geometric shapes and pure cosiness, due to its serene atmosphere. That is the definition for this residency idealized by the Faleiro Guerra Arquitetura office.

‘La Fabrique Sonore’ Exhibition in Reims, France by Hyoung-Gul Kook, Ali Momeni and Robin Meier

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: Hyoung-Gul Kook, Ali Momeni and Robin Meier

The fold, as a multi-layered metaphor for the relationship between mind and matter, inspires plis/replis. The installation is made up of a highly geometric, folded and suspended structure that amplifies the experiences and metaphors of champagne. The primary structure, a 10 x 10 x 12m cone suspended in a pyramid, underground cave (a “crayères”) – one of the largest crayères of Vranken-Pommery’s 18km long underground system of corridors and caves dating back to Roman times.  This architectural augmentation of the space also serves as a functional loud speaker.  A glass platform suspended at the focal point within the cone holds a vessel filled with champagne. Using the actual sounds of effervescence picked up by a special microphone immersed in the champagne vessel, a real-time analysis/synthesis audio system creates a continually evolving sound environment, diffused downward from above.

Designed by SWA Group with Ojanen Chiou Architects LLP, the 157 hectare Dongtan Central Business Master Plan is at the heart of Dongtan City: a new urban center located just 30 km south of Seoul in South Korea.  The development zone is situated on a former agricultural plain that had been taken over by various industrial uses.  Bounded by a river to the west and mountainous terrain to the east, this zone is bisected by a major transportation corridor connecting Seoul with the southern reaches of the country.  At the core of the development is a transit center that will accommodate high-speed and metropolitan rail stations connecting with a bi-modal (bus + tram) transit system, and long-distance and city buses, establishing Dongtan City as a major regional transit hub.

PLUS in Shizuoka, Japan by Mount Fuji Architects Studio

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: Masahiro Harada + MAO / MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

The site locates on mountainside of Izu-san, where Pacific Ocean can be looked down on the south. The untouched wilderness, covered with deciduous broad-leaved trees such as cherry trees and Japanese oaks, gives little level ground. But we saw faint glimmer of architectural possibility along the ridge. The architecture would be used as villa for weekends.

D/OCEAN in Yeosu, Korea by Y Design Office

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: Y Design Office


The two silos at the expo site are standing at an outstanding location- situated between the ocean and the mountain- and also surrounded by two large public plazas. It is critical to redesign the current silos with foundational understanding for the importance of its current location. Since the silos stand at a focal point in viewing the ocean (from Silo A) and the mountains (from Silo B), this connection to its surrounding nature must be kept intact even when advances are made to its current design. Our design exploits the territory between the natural and the digital. The two silos will become an interesting destination where the world between nature and technology becomes strangely ambiguous without subtracting the original element in each.
