Patkau Architects - Winnipeg Centennial Library Addition Print E-mail
Wednesday, 15 October 2008 03:13

Winnipeg is the capital and largest city in the province of Manitoba, located within the prairies of Western Canada. Winnipeg Centennial Library, originally constructed in 1976 as a three-story building, occupies a city block along with a large public park. Both library and green space stand on a below-grade parking garage.

The library, which is roughly triangular in plan, is constructed of reinforced concrete; the concrete is exposed on the interior, while the exterior is clad in pre-cast panels. Connection between the 1976 library and park is surprisingly limited. The monolithic concrete and the disconnection from the setting result in a fortress-like building with generally closed and introspective interiors.

Beijing_airport_08.jpg Archinnovations.com is proud to feature a series of projects by one of the most prestigious and innovative firms in the world: Foster + Partners.

We start with one of Beijing’s recentlly completed landmarks; the new Terminal at Beijing Capital International Airport, considered as the world’s largest building and most advanced airport.

This new terminal offers an unparalleled traveling experience, not only technologically, but also in terms of operational efficiency, passenger comfort, sustainability and access to natural light.

Completed ahead of this summer’s Summer Olympics and conceived as the gateway to Beijing for athletes participating in that great event, it is designed to be welcoming and uplifting. Norman Foster stressed on the symbol of place, its soaring aerodynamic roof and its dragon-like form celebrate the thrill and poetry of flight. Its gold roof resonates with the Forbidden City, while the striking interior palette of red through orange to yellow evokes traditional Chinese colors.

The Millennium Line's flagship location boasts a high-tech aesthetic with user friendly warmth.




Located in Vancouver BC, Canada, Brentwood Town Centre is one of 11 stations on the Millennium Line, the latest extension to Vancouver’s rapid transit system known as SkyTrain. The station has a uniquely prominent location; set 9 metres above the median of Lougheed Highway, its striking double-curved form hovers above the mezzanine level landbridge that crosses the highway and connects the station to the adjacent Lougheed Mall.

Erick van Egeraat - Grave City Hall Print E-mail

Designed by Erick van Egeraat, the new building for the City Hall of Grave in the Netherland, was officially opened this summer. The municipality shares the building with housing corporation Maasland and the regional historic archive of the Province of North Brabant, BHIC.


Seen from a distance, the building presents itself as a singular ensemble. Up close, however, specific identities of the users become apparent. The three parties present themselves to the public in the main entrance hall, an open environment on the ground floor, thereby stimulating interaction among the tenants and between tenants and visitors.

This colorful project regroups the two animal refuges in Amsterdam creating the largest pound in the Netherlands. animal_refuge_centre01.jpg

The plot is on fringes of the city.  Shaped like a wedge, it was apparently impossible to fit the functions of the animal shelter.

RHRPL2.jpg Located in Southern Colorado, Pueblo is sited at the foot of the Wet Mountains where the Great Plains meet the Rockies. Pueblo is both a geographical and cultural crossroads. Native nomadic cultures gathered at the confluence of the Fountain and Arkansas Rivers living off of the rivers and the grazing buffaloes. Later farmers and ranchers settled the plains with domesticated livestock.

In addition to the natural geography, Pueblo was also influenced by the railroad. A major north/south line crosses a major east/west railroad line, bringing industry to Pueblo, and resulting in a culturally diverse population. Pueblo’s steel and brick industry brought migrant workers to the community adding to its demographic diversity.

Lake|Flato Architects - The Government Canyon Visitor Center Print E-mail
Tuesday, 13 May 2008 03:33

Visitor_center_05.jpg The Government Canyon Visitor Center by Lake|Flato Architects, An AIA/COTE Top Ten Green Project in 2007, floats in a field of native grasses and restored oaks at the mouth of the canyon, forming a gateway to the 8,600-acre Government Canyon State Natural Area , located in Bexar County outside of San Antonio, Texas.

The architects opted for an ecological approach for the project, distancing themselves from the convenient car-friendly concepts for natural parks. They designed their project that would have a minimal impact on the environment. That is particularly important for this site, since it borders the recharge zone of the Edwards Aquifer, the only source of drinking water for the city of San Antonio. The design also demonstrates sustainable design water use practices by conserving water, collecting rainwater, minimizing run-off and contaminants, and reducing the use of ground water.
