Katsuhiro Miyamoto thrives on designing dwellings on challenging sites. As we saw in projects previously featured on Archinnovations, the architect carefully composes his projects from the constraint imposed by the surrounding density of the urban landscapes, developing his ideas despite the awkwardness of the site’s shapes and dimensions.

He proposes solutions that possess a powerful in their visual appeal while staying focused on the functional requirements of the house and the creation of user-centric living space.

MulvannyG2 Architecture - Redmond City Hall Print E-mail

The economic boom of the late 1980s and 90s fueled remarkable growth within the City of Redmond, home to software giants Microsoft and Nintendo America. This period saw a similar growth in the size of the City government. As the new century began, it became clear that they had outgrown their existing 1960s era building, and needed a newer, more flexible facility that would serve their needs and represent the City as they faced the future.


The new Redmond City Hall building is the largest public works project ever undertaken in the City’s history. In order to ease the financial burden that such a project would impose, Wright Runstad & Company and the City agreed upon a public / private funding mechanism which has become increasingly more popular for the financing of public projects.

LEED Platinum Certified Desert Museum Complex By Lehrer + Gangi Design + Build Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 April 2008 01:59

Water_Life Museums.jpg
A Platinum LEED certification from the US Green Building Council (USGBC) was awarded to the Water + Life Museums, which comprise the Center for Water Education and the Western Center for Archeology and Paleontology, designed and constructed by Los Angeles-based Lehrer + Gangi Design + Build. 


The complex is the first museum building to secure a Platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating, the highest bestowed by the USGBC.  The award is doubly impressive, as the 70,000-square-foot museum complex met the most exacting green standards (including those regarding energy and water consumption), despite the harsh desert environment of Hemet, where triple-digit summer heat is the norm, but where water can freeze in winter.

tetris_01.jpg








The featured housing block is situated at the edge of a housing development that projects the construction of 650 apartments. After construction, the design was acquired by the Slovenian Housing Fund and will be replicated in other developments.

With a rich interplay of small volumes of different material interlocking throughout the elevations, many people associated them to Tetris game. And so the building got its name.

Hof is a new country residence in the Skakafjörður fjord, less than 100km from the Arctic Circle in Iceland.

The spectacle of the location, its remoteness and special program fuelled a unique rapport between the client, contractor and architect resulting in a building that is in every respect a direct consequence of that collaboration.

STUDIOS was selected by the City of San Jose to design the Evergreen Branch Library, part of a public bond-funded group of city branch libraries.



The architecture of the new one-story library—which is sited adjacent to a public park amid a largely residential area—conveys a distinct civic presence without disrupting the scale of neighboring structures. A pronounced canopy supported by a large concrete column marks the building’s entryway.
