Sander Architects - Residence for a sculptor Print E-mail
Monday, 22 September 2008 02:15

Residence_sculptor_02.jpg




Residence for a Sculptor positions itself frontally within a hillside. It consciously projects itself as a series of constructive polemics that help in building a solid design concept:


1. Facade / Face vs. Viscera / Musculature: A smooth, taut facade is lifted above the hillside, reflecting the linear displacement of spaces. The facade is supported by a steel frame that is exposed on the rear, uphill side. The dialog here is between fineness and unrefined, between an outward effortless presentation and the physical efforts that are required to present it.

MAD - The Absolute Towers in Mississauga, Canada Print E-mail

1029_final-.jpg






Modernism had a famous motto stating that a house is a machine for living in.


If the architect still adheres to that principle, as the machine and the societies  that were built upon it go through dramatic changes, the question he should ask himself would relate to the understanding of about the definition of modern architecture today. What message should the architecture convey if it distances itself away from the industrial age?


Like other fast developing suburbs in North America, Mississauga, located in the vicinities of Toronto, is seeking a new identity that best explains its own characters.

A  kindergarten where lemonade flows

This is the third chapter of a series of articles dedicated to The Baupiloten ,  a group of students at the architectural faculty of the TU Berlin who carry out building projects under the guidance and supervision of the architects Susanne Hofmann, AA Dipl. and Dipl. Ing. Martin Janekovic.


Within the scope of the refurbishment the Baupiloten created a completely new conceived world from the temporary structure of the kindergarten as imagined by the children. The results are interactive and communicative interior spaces as well as a multifunctional façade according to Astrid Lindgren’s story.

The Marcia and John Price Museum Building at the University of Utah
.

During the competition stage for the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Machado Silvetti’s approach to the new museum required acknowledging and exploiting its privileged location at the terminus of the campus mall and its unique condition as a freestanding artifact seen against the Wasatch Mountain Range.


Given the museum’s programmatic intentions, they decided early on to make the proposed Grand Gallery the centerpiece of the project, its most powerful and representative space.
