Five great projects from last week that you must check out! The main image belongs to the most visited post of the week, the neat Zamora Offices by Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza. Looking for house designs? You can’t miss these three great houses. House kn designed by Kochi Architect’s Studio, Ian MacDonald’s Meadow House in Caledon, Canada or the amazing Summer house in Naxos, Greece.

Why do architects believe their wordless buildings are easy to read? | Blog | Lost in space | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
‘Sign designers are convinced that architects don’t like them,’ writes Rob Waller, in his provocative Monitor piece in the latest issue of Eye

(no. 80 vol. 20). In ‘Places need signs’ he argues that ‘just like handles on doors, signs should be there from the start.’ Here, exclusively for the Eye blog, are some choice examples of wordless buildings, accompanied by Rob Waller’s comments.

El nuevo perfil costero que propone crear el edificio es un punto alcanzado con relativo éxito, pero su integración al contexto consolidado se ve obstaculizada por su propia materialidad, que propone un cambio ilegible para la estructuración espacial del sitio.

“On November 12th, 1999, the city of Düzce was shook by the 7.2 magnitude Düzce Earthquake. The remaining architecture is a wild mixture of quick reconstructions following the disaster.

In 2002, the University of Düzce was founded to attract young people and has since become a new center and one of the main driving forces for future development in Düzce. The idea and initiative for a new technology center, Düzce TEKNOPARK has its origin at Düzce University represented by Rector Prof. Funda Sivrikaya-Serifoglu and assoc.Prof.

“la clave de la emoción estética es una función característica del espacio” ...

Via Marcelo Gardinetti
association concert urbain's insight:

 

Sin embargo, la emoción de la que Le Corbusier habla en el párrafo introductorio, se gesta en la incorporación de contrapuntos formales subyacentes que hábilmente incorpora en sus proyectos, dialécticas entre elementos disímiles, a veces opuestos, casi siempre complementarios, que enriquecen la percepción sensorial de su arquitectura.

Via Marcelo Gardinetti
association concert urbain's insight:

 

La vivienda es calentada por energía geotérmica que, a partir del uso de tecnología incorporada, permite el control de temperatura individual en cualquiera de sus ambientes. El uso de tecnología de última generación permite un mínimo consumo de energía, y hace sustentable un diseño que retoma los conceptos formales de uno de los ensayos más conocidos de la primera época del movimiento moderno.

Sustainable Housing in Denmark by Lendager Architects

Sustainable Housing in Denmark by Lendager Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Lendager Architects announced their first prize win in the competition to build the first DGNB-certified housing project in Denmark in Næstved.

DGNB is a new green building certification system expected to become the scale for sustainability in Europe. DGNB-Certification focuses on three equally weighted parameters: Environmental-, Social- and economical sustainability, for a holistic evaluation of built projects.

In total, the project will have 24 single family homes, built around a shared courtyard to encourage community and shared resources. Passive solar design with optimized window and shade placement allows for passive cooling and heating. Energy efficient design, including a tight thermal envelope with energy saving systems reduces power consumption, while rooftop photovoltaics produce electricity. Green roofs protect the home and provide further insulation. A close connection with nature and gardens encourages residents to live off the land.

As Lendager Architects told us about the project, “We wanted to answer the questions of how we can build without affecting the environment, how we can build without using new materials, how we can build houses that produce more energy than they use, and how sharing becomes a natural part of the daily life.”
