The Village Centre at the National Arboretum, Canberra

The Village Centre at the National Arboretum, Canberra | Architecture | Scoop.it

Tonkin Zulaikha Greer collaborated with Taylor Cullity Lethlean to design The Village Centre for the National Arboretum in Canberra, Australia.


The architecture develops the long-standing tradition of significant garden buildings as transparent enclosures with dramatic internal volumes and sense of indoor-outdoor connection.

The exterior of the building is a sculptural form in the rolling topography of the site, contrasting low stone-clad wings with a high arching roof clad in weathered zinc, the form of which is inspired by the fronds of the adjoining forest of Chilean Wine Palms.

Internally, the innovative timber structure combines low environmental impact with a dramatic forest-like form, designed in a series of geometrical arcs.

The building incorporates a range of energy-saving measures, supporting the environmental value of the Arboretum as a whole, with a very low-energy envelope and structure.

A Japanese House Merges the Indoors with the Outdoors

A Japanese House Merges the Indoors with the Outdoors | Architecture | Scoop.it

Japanese architect Makoto Tanijiri of Suppose Design Office designed a residential home that merges the indoors with the outdoors. 

‘House in Takaya’ located in Hiroshima, Japan, features a polished modern exterior, but incorporates the charming traditional “doma” earthen floor in its interiors. Throughout the entire house, the “doma” acts as a hallway. 
Besides being eco-friendly, it also has benefits as it keeps the home cool in summer, and warm in winter—and adds richness to the home’s interior...

Besides earth floors, thermal heat pumps in the ground can reduce heating and cooling costs by circulating liquids into the ground, which has stable temperature beyond 3 to 4 feet below the surface.  It would be a cheap form of decentralized energy since the earth is like a big battery.

I would love to have a place like this!
Matthew Carrigg's curator insight, October 14, 2014 1:05 PM

In this article explains the new arts being brought into architecture making more modern houses.  Japan is diverting from its old traditionally based home which is a bad and a good thing. The bad outcome of modernizing their homes is it loses some of its culture which plays a huge role in how china works today. Although changing the way Japan's houses are constructed to give a more modern feel opens up Japans eyes with a new view of the rest of the world instead of being isolated behind it's walls.
