Article source: Mecanoo

Zaans Medical Centre is the first lean hospital in the Netherlands. It is an efficient and compact building in which professional healthcare and a personal approach strengthen each other. Architecture, urbanism, landscape and interior are brought together in a coherent design. Clear routing, an abundance of daylight, and positive distractions contribute to an environment that does not feel like a hospital, but as a place that promotes wellbeing.

Gohar Khatoon Girls’ School in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan by Robert Hull and UNIVERSITY of WASHINGTON

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Article source: Robert Hull and UNIVERSITY of WASHINGTON

Located in the center Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan’s fourth largest city, the Gohar Khatoon Girls’ School provides kindergarten through grade twelve classes, serving 3,000 students a day.

Mazar-i-Sharif is home to several universities, and Gohar Khatoon–acting as a gateway to higher education–is positioned to become a key institution for educating several thousand women and girls in an important urban center. Girls’ schools are already considered to be major contributors in Afghanistan’s push toward development and these institutions serve as powerful mechanisms for inclusion within Afghan society. Schools are the setting where women and girls will negotiate this transition, and Gohar Khatoon has been designed to support this process by promoting stability, comfort, and community engagement.

058_Countryside Villa in Montebelluna, Italy by MIDE architetti

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Article source: MIDE architetti 

The building is located near Montebelluna, in the province of Treviso. The design idea results from the will to enhance the existing context, gently immerging the new house into the greenery: two thin horizontal and parallel lines define the foundation and the flat roof, protecting the ‘dwelling box’ in between. The idea of timber cladding greatly integrates the project with the surrounding environment and the use of large windows allows tangible continuity with the surrounding vast green park.
