Morphogenesis - The Uttorayon Township in Siliguri, West Bengal Print E-mail
Written by Morphogenesis

Morphogenesis-Uttorayon-01Uttorayon Township is a 400 acre development on a non productive Tea Estate in Siliguri, West Bengal. The guiding objective of the project was to create a model for low cost development in India which enhances community while respecting the environment.

Siliguri is in a unique position today; Trade links are flourishing and the city is benefitting significantly from its strategic location as the gateway to the northeast. Investments are being maintained at high levels with continuing opportunities, growing prosperity and secure incomes. Accompanying these changes is a desire for improvements in the built environment and in the general quality of houses, schools, hospitals and other socio-cultural facilities.

One of the major challenges of current critical thought on housing is that of generating a residential space, not only from the required technical and spatial reformulation of the ‘built’, but also from the investigation of new urban orders. The key concept that is explored for the planning and design of this development is the formulation of a new urban system addressing issues of settlement identity, dynamic and flexible infrastructure, landscape and open space distribution, and perceptual paradigms. The Uttorayon Township project strives to address these very issues and generate a development that may serve as a model for future such developments.

Of equal importance was to strengthen the connections between education and environment as well as accommodate community use. Finally, the new facility and site development honors the heritage of place; including preservation of historic cherry trees planted by Japanese Americans upon returning from World War II.

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson - Sheldon Gatehouse in Cle Elum, Washington Print E-mail
Tuesday, 26 October 2010 07:03


When designing houses, the firm of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has the natural talent of integrating the house in its surroundings. Their work dissolves into a synergetic composition that respects the aesthetic attributes of the landscape.
Bohlin-Sheldon-04In the case of this project, as they explain, the client wanted a small home as a retreat from her hectic urban life. She sought to enjoy, throughout the seasons, the seclusion and connection with nature offered by her large forested property in the eastern foothills of the Cascades. The modest project included one bedroom, a guest suite for friends and family, and a garage that could be adaptable for use as a studio/workspace.

Rockefeller-Thue-02


Rockefeller Partners created this modern beach 4,500 Square feet house on the Strand in Manhattan Beach.

This particular client has never lived more than a few blocks away from the beach. His love of Balinese architecture challenged Rockefeller Partners to create a modern, Californian interpretation.


The three-story home places the public spaces on the highest floor, affording them the best views.

Private spaces are placed on the middle floor, and the Ground floor houses the beach room and family room that is accessible to the walkway street, just steps away from the beach.
