We understand this brief as the opportunity tocreate a dialectical proposal raging between an intensive and extensive use of space. Despite the competition lines focus on a project site that adapt to the actual coast line, this proposal is based in modifying that front line to tackle the programme and mobility issues crucial to solve.
El proyecto, en una zona de gran sensibilidad como es el centro de Milán, resuelve la conservación del edificio, introduciendo nuevas funcionalidades que contribuyen a la resolución de su localización particular, garantizando el nivel de usabilidad microurbanística adecuada al contexto.
There are two plots given for the project – Study Area “A” Architectural Design and Study Area “B” Urban Layout. One of the main design goals was to make them harmonize with each other. That’s why we thought about relationship between the new volumes, taking into consideration both design areas. There are 2 buildings on Study Area “B” – hotel and apartments. Both are four stories high.
Positioned at the interface between cityand university centre two new compact solitaires establish an independent scale and spatial structure within their heterogonous proximity. The outspoken vertical and horizontal gesture of the volumes results in an iconographic complex, whose presence goes far beyond the immediate context. In addition the reciprocal prelude of both city and campus is labelled and rises to the occasion. As yet the functional aesthetic of the seventies left its mark on the character of the entire campus. Accordingly the infrastructure of the public space is more subject to rational than to atmospheric principals.
The office building is located within 'Campus Audiovisual', a part of the regenerated 19th century industrial area of Poblenou,fronting a southern section of the Diagonal and close to the boundary of the Eixample and Sant Martí areas of the city of Barcelona. The site occupies approximately one quarter of an urban block within Idefons Cerdà's masterplan. Simple and bold sculptural forms have been carved out of the given project boundaries.
Engawa está formado por un conjunto de desconocidos.
Este espacio nace por la necesidad de escribir que tienen los amigos invisibles, localizados en diferentes puntos del planeta.
El tema de cada número parte de una imagen elegida individualmente y en silencio por un integrante de Engawa, el resto la desconocen. Esta acción, en sí misma, evita hablar de lo que todos hablan y permite el azar propio de una conversación.
Engawa es un lugar dentro del vasto espacio de internet en donde esperamos tu participación.
Engawa: espacio japonés a medio camino entre el interior y el exterior.

How can we face the Project of a new buildingoffice in a place that already forms a urban unity, a unity made up of trees? The existing volume is a slight mass, thus the project must work with this topic, this previous materiality. The result must be, at any point, the addition of trees and work space.
The site where the new extension to theMusée National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec will be built suggests a unique opportunity to plan the
transformation of a cultural ensemble that has been created by the
addition of different pieces over time. Following this thread, the
question arises: how to add a new building that means something more
than just a solution to a functional problem, and how to conceive an
architectural project that harmonizes the museum,s connection with
the park and the memory of the former monastery buildings?
Moderna Museet Malmö is the first branch of the main
museum in Stockholm. The former Electricity Station dating
from 1900 and once the Rooseum gallery, has been refurbished
to meet international museum standards.
photos: SO – IL Roofs are underused in New York City. Garden City Roofs, a startup company catering to a growing need for technical expertise and access to green roof systems, is converting the unused roof of a large industrial building into a showroom and knowledge-center for green roof systems. SO – IL has been asked to evaluate access, device an allotment system for the various roof systems and design a sales- and learning center. The factory building - once home to the production of typewriter ribbons and currently housing a gym and billiards hall - is located along the train tracks in Sunnyside Gardens, Queens under a la Guardia airstrip.
This project is an bio-compatiblemobile house, characterized by still structure with envelope in plastic transparent panels (1,2mm depth). The “tray” system of the envelope allow the placement of the thin earth layer (3 cm) blocked by still grate. Over the envelope we think to put rolled lawn system (60 cm x 3,00 m).
The trapezoidal shape allows a good water drainage system and to hold the lawn over the structure. The rolled lawn represents a good insulating material system and very good natural integration with the landscape.
Andrés Jaque Architects in association with the Office for Political
Innovation presents now the first ARCHI-SHOT, directed by Juliana
Gutierrez. ARCHI-SHOTs will explore the importance terms taken
from political and social sciences have had in works developed
by Andrés Jaque Architects. And what is their actual potential for
architecture and urbanism. The first one deals with TRANSPARENCY
and the 12 Actions to make Peter Eisenman Transparent.
