In Residence: The minimalist masterpiece that Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin calls home.

In Residence: The minimalist masterpiece that Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin calls home. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Free of clutter but filled with light, shadow and sculptural forms, filmmaker Matthew Donaldson takes you inside the minimalist masterpiece that Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin calls home. As part of NOWNESS’ In Residence series, this video sheds light  Silvestrin’s “reductive, contemplative, near-ecclesiastical spaces” that can be found across the globe – from Moscow to Majorca, and soon-to-be in Miami, where Silvestrin is currently designing a home from Kanye West that will undoubtedly exhibit many of his signature components.

[Marseille, France] Vieux Port Pavilion / Foster + Partners, Photos by Edmund Sumner

[Marseille, France] Vieux Port Pavilion / Foster + Partners, Photos by Edmund Sumner | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Located at the mouth of Marseille’s World Heritage-listed harbor, the Vieux Port Pavilion, designed by Foster + Partners, provides a new sheltered events space on the eastern edge of the port. Bringing new focus to the city, these photographs by Edmund Sumnerdemonstrate the stainless steel canopy’s ability to amplify and reflect the surrounding movement of the harbor, creating a spectacle that encourages pedestrians to linger. Since its opening early this year, the project is truly an invitation to the people of Marseille to enjoy and use this grand space for events, markets and celebrations once again.

University of California San Diego - UCSD: A Built History of Modernism

University of California San Diego - UCSD: A Built History of Modernism | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

At just a little over 50 years old, the University of California San Diego is one of the younger college campuses in the United States, but despite this it is one of the most architecturally fascinating universities around. In the official UCSD campus guide, Dirk Sutro emphasizes that “UCSD does not have a single example of the historical-revival styles prevalent at other University of California campuses… and at San Diego’s two other major universities”. The history of UCSD architecture is one of ambition, which has made the campus a display case of modernism in all of its forms from the last half a century.

Thanks to photographer Darren Bradley, we can now share this history and a selection of the exciting structures it has produced.

Des appartements déroutants pour stimuler les séniors au Japon

Des appartements déroutants pour stimuler les séniors au Japon | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Le concept est né au Japon, il y a un peu moins de 5 ans: des appartements conçus et équipés pour faciliter la vie des séniors. L’idée connait un grand succès dans la banlieue de Tokyo, en effet les japonais amateurs d’art et d’originalité et confrontés au vieillissement de leur population ont rapidement adopté le principe des « lofts au destin réversible ».
