Apple Store - Fifth Avenue :  5to lugar MÁS turístico de New York. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Hace 7 años Steve Jobs inauguraba su “tienda” icónica por excelencia, este lugar fue pensado no solo como un espacio para la compra de productos de Apple, ya que Jobs pensaba que para eso la gente podría hacerlo desde sus sillones de casa a través de su web; este espacio fue creado para ser icono arquitectónico de la firma, un espacio social y de referencia en la ciudad, siendo hoy en día el 5to lugar más turístico de New York.

[London, United Kingdom] BBC Broadcasting House

[London, United Kingdom] BBC Broadcasting House | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

London, United Kingdom

A project by: MJP Architects, Sheppard Robson Architects

Architecture, Urban Design

 

Our largest project to date is the repair and refurbishment of the Grade II* listed 1930’s BBC Broadcasting House and extension to accommodate staff from BBC News, Radio, Music and the World Service. 

 

We wanted to create an extremely adaptable and flexible building that inspires creative people, promotes collaborative working and provides a sympathetic working environment that attracts high-calibre employees, and is a a commercial asset for the BBC. Our design complements the iconic status of the original Broadcasting House with an emblematic work of architecture.

 

The extension complements the existing building by the use of similar materials, Portland stone and glass that is fritted to resemble the stone colour. 

 

The BBC have contributed to this part of London by creating a major new public space outside the building that opens up the organisation’s relationship with its audience. 

 

The new build component of the design comprises of 80,000m⊃2; of production areas, studios and staff facilities. A 4000m⊃2; newsroom is an exciting and theatrical workspace at the heart of the extended building. The design maximises floor space and creates a building which has efficient net:gross floor area ratios and an excellent BREEAM rating.

house on PILOTIS - 4N by ninkipen! - designboom

house on PILOTIS - 4N by ninkipen! - designboom | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
'4N house' by ninkipen! is cantilevered on a slope creating a shaded play area for the family's children and alternative entrance at the home's.

 

reclaimed after the wake of the 3.11 tsunami and earthquake in japan, the site of '4N house' by ninkipen! was originally divided into two levels with a retaining wall running through it. in recovering the residence and its position within the ikoma city landscape in nara prefecture, ninkipen! redeveloped the land and surviving structure, by taking down the wall and fabricating a slope to orienting half of the rectangular volume on the inclined terrain--with the back end of the house supported by pilotis--making the home appear as it is floating above the ground, thus creating a small shaded play area for the family's children. this intervention also offers an alternative entrance into the house through the base of the residence.

Frank Lloyd Wright / Oak Park, endroit parfait pour découvrir son travail et son évolution vers la Praire House.

Frank Lloyd Wright / Oak Park, endroit parfait pour découvrir son travail et son évolution vers la Praire House. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Frank Lloyd Wright est un des architectes américains les plus influents. Ses Prairie Houses, maisons basses, qui éliminent un maximum les cloisons, tournées vers un foyer (cheminée) central, avec des toitures débordantes très différentes du style de l’époque, ont fortement influencées l’architecture américaine.

...

Même si j’appréciais l’architecture de Frank Lloyd Wright et l’évolution de son architecture par rapport à ses contemporains j’avoue que j’étais assez sceptique sur le confort à l’intérieur des ses maisons. Elles donnent l’impression d’être sombres et les façades souvent assez complexes me laissaient craindre un plan tout aussi compliqué.

La visite de sa maison et de son atelier à Oak Park m’a permis de percevoir toutes les qualités de l’architecture de Frank Lloyd Wright. Le plan est simple et fluide et la lumière inonde les espaces. La seule chose que je reprocherais à sa maison est le manque d’interactions avec la rue, toutes les fenêtres sont en hauteur, ce qui permet de se protéger des regards extérieurs sans mettre de rideau, mais empêche d’interagir avec le jardin et la rue.
