Thursday, 26 June 2008 05:48

Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects (OSKA) have designed the Wabi Sabi house in Houston, Texas for developer Carol Isaak Barden + Company. The house represents a singular commingling of Eastern and Western aesthetics and the sensual use of natural materials. Rick Sundberg was the lead architect on the project, his first in Texas.

“It was exciting to work in a city like Houston,” says Rick Sundberg. “The climate is so different from ours, and it raises unique challenges. Working on a spec house has its own challenges – creating a home that can accommodate a wide range of lifestyles and families; from active young families to empty-nesters.”

Office of Metropolitan Architecture - China Central Television Station and Headquarters
Wednesday, 08 October 2008 02:25

Here is another innovative project by dutch architects of the Office of Metropolitan Architecture. CCTV will be one among many towers in Beijing’s new Central Business District, all striving to be unique – all different expressions of the vertical dimension.

The tragedy of the skyscraper is that it marks a place as significant, which it then occupies and exhausts with banality… This banality is twofold: in spite of their potential to be incubators of new cultures, programs, and ways of life, most towers accommodate merely routine activity, arranged according to predictable patterns. Formally, their expressions of verticality have proven to stunt the imagination: as verticality soars, creativity crashes.

John Ronan Architect - Poured Concrete Townhouse in Chicago
Thursday, 30 April 2009 01:54

Ronan_Concrete_House_01.jpg










This house for a family of five explores spatial gradation from communal to private, in an urban domestic condition: children’s bedrooms on the third floor lead to a collective play space for the three children, which is connected to the communal family spaces on the ground floor via a stair, skylight and aluminum screen.



The skylight serves to bring light into the center of the home; the screen acts simultaneously as guardrail and light filter.

A look at the Richmond Olympic Oval in BC, by Cannon Design
Tuesday, 12 January 2010 00:00

Richmond_oval_01


The Richmond Olympic Oval is major venue of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Conceived by Cannon Design to be one of the world’s largest speed-skating facilities, the Oval displays a massive wood wave roof encompassing 6.5 acres. This innovative roof system is one of the longest clear spans in North America, and built almost entirely from wood.

The building is mainly composed of a 33,000-m2 oval. For the 2010 Olympic Games, It will house a 400-metre speed skating track with a capacity for approximately 8,000 guests. After the Games, the facility will be converted to multipurpose sports use. The main sports hall will become an indoor activity area divided into three sections: ice, court and track and field. The ice section will have two ice rinks.

The court section will be a combination hardwood and rubber surface playing area capable of hosting a wide variety of sports, while the track and field section will have a rubberized turf surface that will be home to an indoor running track and other sports. The space will be convertible to different configurations that allow the facility to be used for a combination of ice and dry sports as demand warrants, including occasional reconfiguration for major short track and long track speed skating events.

BGP arquitectura - Habita Hotel in Mexico City
Saturday, 06 September 2008 19:00

Habita_02.jpg On a commercial street lined with high-end retail stores and office buildings, BGP arquitectura was commissioned to convert a five-story 1950’s apartment building into a mixed-use project composed of thirty-six rooms with boutiques and a hotel.

In order to convert the existing structure to suit the current requirements of the hotel, a series of very precise and careful interventions were required. The old structure gains an entirely new identity with a new wrapper consisting of a frosted glass box of rectangular glass panels floating several feet from the original facade. Sandwiched between the new and old facades are the original balconies and newly implemented corridors.
