Maison Escalier: Jacques Moussafir Architectes

Maison Escalier: Jacques Moussafir Architectes | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

En plein coeur de St Germain des Prés, l'agence Jacques Moussafir Architectes signe la reconstruction d'une maison en lieu et place d'une ancienne masure enchâssée entre deux immeubles.

Située au 22 rue Jacob, cette maison à structure acier de 153 m2 s'ouvre sur une cour calme et préservée. Entièrement vitrée, sa façade s'habille d'une second peau métallique au motif végétal qui protège l'intimité des occupants et laisse deviner la complexité des volumes intérieurs.

Les espaces de vie s'articulent autour d'un noyau central intégrant les pièces humides et servant de support à un escalier sculptural en parquet d'acacia. Le noyau sculpte l'espace par ailleurs dénué de cloisons.

Here Now, the Craziest Starchitect Projects of the Year

Here Now, the Craziest Starchitect Projects of the Year | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

What kind of year would this have been without starchitecture? Well, for starters, there'd be no record-breaking $90M penthouses, no plans for Ice Cream City and noresidential forests in Singapore. There'd be none of Bjarke Ingels' cool-kid flourishes, none of Zaha Hadid's signature curvature, and certainly none of Frank Gehry's mindbending deconstructivism. But, as luck would have it, 2012 was a bountiful year for pie-in-the-sky design from architecture's biggest names, a year when some of the most ambitious arrested developments were renewed and some incredibly over-the-top renderings were unveiled. Above: 25 of the most fantastic projects completed, proposed, or restarted in 2012 by folks like Norman Foster, Christian de Portzamparc, Jean Nouvel, and more. Do have a look.

[FRANCE] Crèche de la Girafe, Boulogne, Hondelatte-Laporte Architects

[FRANCE] Crèche de la Girafe, Boulogne, Hondelatte-Laporte Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

La crèche de la Girafe est située au pied de la "non-tour" imaginée par Jean Nouvel, dans le secteur dit du «triangle» entre le Quartier du Vieux Pont de Sèvres, quartier sur dalle réalisé dans les années 70, et le nouveau quartier du Trapèze. L’ensemble du quartier offre un skyline vallonné.
Pour s’intégrer dans cette cohérence globale urbaine remarquable, le projet se compose de trois strates étagées, morphologie qui est à l’articulation de toutes les caractéristiques du quartier : empilement, terrassement et rampe.
Cet équipement public exprime le monde de la petite enfance. L’idée est de créer un événement qui anime l’espace public en faisant appel à l’imaginaire enfantin : des animaux sauvages investissent les lieux. Une girafe fait figure de proue et vient tranquillement brouter la strate arborée à sa portée tandis qu’une oursonne polaire tente de grimper à l’étage supérieur depuis une terrasse au sud et une procession de coccinelle traverse le jardin.
