Aqwa Corporate in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Foster + Partners

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Article source: Foster + Partners

The Aqwa Corporate Project is a Class A commercial office development along the waterfront in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, strategically located at the heart of the Porto Maravilha urban regeneration district. Situated within a landfill zone dating back to the 20th Century, the project is part of an extensive land reclamation in the historic port area of the city. Throughout its history, the area has been integral to the city’s development, and is where choro and samba music was born. The site is also close to the port region of Rio, which has been isolated for many years by the raised ‘Perimetral’ highway. As part of the masterplan, a portion of this route has been demolished, reintegrating the port – which still receives thousands of visitors every year – with the rest of the area. It will also restore parks, squares and other public spaces throughout the district, while rationalising the traffic flow and introducing new retail, commercial and civic spaces to create a vibrant district in the heart of Rio.

Tirana Pyramid in Albania by MVRDV

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Article source: MVRDV

Situated in the centre of Tirana, the former Enver Hoxha Museum designed in the 1980s by a group of architects including the then president’s daughter Pranvera Hoxha and her husband Klement Kolneci. Throughout the years it has also served as a temporary base for NATO during the War in Kosovo, a night club and as an event space. In recent years there were plans to transform the structure into a national theatre. These plans never materialized meaning the building has been left to decay for more than a decade.

Intersections in Gdynia, Poland by IZABELA BOŁOZ

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Article source: IZABELA BOŁOZ

Intersections is an open and versatile furniture collection consisting of several geometric modules. As each shape slides into the other, like two combs, form and color meet and interweave. Together the shapes create sculptural urban installations or play sculptures that can function both as a place to sit and relax as well as a place for spontaneous play.

Centre Culturel de Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal, Canada by Atelier Big City

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Article source: Atelier Big City

The CCNDG is the last project on the Benny Farm, a redeveloped WW2 veterans housing complex in the NDG borough. CCNDG is the last piece placed in a decades-long story of social activism, memory and collaborative design process that consistently rejected expediency for an expanding and inclusive idea of community. The project was the winning scheme for an architectural competition held in 2010. The community required a 21st century ‘third space’ library, one that was more socially and digitally accessible and engaged.

Connecting Space HK in Hong Kong by Parallel Lab

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Article source: Parallel Lab

The challenge of designing a space for the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in Hong Kong was to offer the most flexible framework for a variety of activities such as workshops, exhibitions, performances and others to happen. The rough concrete shell was therefore planned as a adaptive spatial infrastructure. To reinforce the concept of a “tunnel” between Zurich and Hong Kong and invite the neighbourhood to interact with the space the façade is worked out as a porous interface. Instead of a fix facade two layers of polycarbonate roller shutters create a translucent buffer zone that can alternately or simultaneously lift up and fully open the end of the “tunnel” to the street. The 25m long room can on the other hand be configured in a sequence of different sized spaces.
