BIG Shortlisted In Competition to Design Denmark’s LARGEST Hospital

BIG Shortlisted In Competition to Design Denmark’s LARGEST Hospital | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

BIG, WHR and Arup have been shortlisted alongside two other design teams to participate in the second phase of the design competition for what will be Denmark’s largest hospital. The 124,000 square meter facility, known as the Nyt Hospital Nordsjælland, is planned to be built north of Copenhagen.

According to the jury, “BIG’s ideas, together with the large green spaces and green surfaces, mean that we really can talk about a healing hospital in the best possible interpretation of the concept.”

Live BETWEEN Buildings by Mateusz Mastalski and Ole Robin Storjohann

Live BETWEEN Buildings by Mateusz Mastalski and Ole Robin Storjohann | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Two Denmark architects have designed a concept for narrow apartments that fill tiny gaps between existing buildings.

 

Mateusz Mastalski and Ole Robin Storjohann's project Live Between Buildings proposes a series of micro-home apartments for urban living. In the designs, the tiny living quarters are proposed in playful shapes including an X, an O, a tree, a cloud, a speech bubble and a space invader.

[Surfer’s Paradise, Australia] A MIXED-USE Project Takes Cues from Australia's Landscape

[Surfer’s Paradise, Australia] A MIXED-USE Project Takes Cues from Australia's Landscape | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Nestled between ocean and rain forest, the project establishes a new benchmark for ecological design within the natural environment. Earnest and timeless, the architecture is simultaneously powerful, yet comfortable; straightforward, yet innovative; casual, yet elegant; fundamental, yet refined. The resulting experience is sensual and sensitive, intentionally reduced to what is essential– through bold, elemental forms, sincere materiality/detailing, and the integration of Australia’s bountiful natural resources both physical and ethereal.

[AD Interviews] Saskia Sassen: WHAT is Architecture?

[AD Interviews] Saskia Sassen: WHAT is Architecture? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Sociologist Saskia Sassen's researches and writes about the social, economic and political dimensions of globalization, immigration, and networked

 

Saskia Sassen: For me architecture at its best is a form of knowledge. It is not just putting up walls. It is incorporating all the knowledge we have.  How can we use biospheric capabilities and how can we insert them in buildings? How can we use technologies, light, existing breeze, etc? It really is a form of knowledge; but a form of knowledge that is an axial condition that brings together many different forms of knowledge to come up with something. I make a big distinction between simply building a building (construction, the construction industry) and architecture. A lot of what goes under the name of architecture, I think, is a very mediocre form of knowledge. It’s not living up to what it should be.

[Jerusalem,Israel] Ramot Polin neighborhood, a housing project designed by Zvi Hecker [AD Classics]

[Jerusalem,Israel] Ramot Polin neighborhood, a housing project designed by Zvi Hecker [AD Classics] | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Architects: Zvi Hecker
Location: Haroe, Jerusalem
Area: 72000.0 sqm
Year: 1977

 

The Ramot Polin neighborhood is a housing project designed by the Polish-born Israeli architect Zvi Hecker, commissioned by the Israeli government in the euphoric aftermath of the Six Day War. The project, which resembles a beehive, is an avant-garde architectural experiment on morphology as well as construction. Since being constructed in the late 1970s, the structure has undergone extensive alteration by its tenants, provoking a debate regarding the capacity of expressive architecture to account for authentic human needs.

SOLO House: The project for a holiday house in the country of Franja de Aragón, Spain, of the Chilean architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen is both monolithic and transparent.

SOLO House: The project for a holiday house in the country of Franja de Aragón, Spain, of the Chilean architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen is both monolithic and transparent. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Reaching the Solo House isn’t easy. The landscape is a tract of green heaven in the middle of nowhere in the province of Teruel, Spain. 

Suddenly one encounters an endless staircase of rough concrete and, struck by contrasting sensations, one feels obliged to climb up it. Paradoxically, the house is so beautiful one gets a nagging feeling there’s something wrong with it. The Solo Houses are a project of 12 equally “curated” dwellings for use as second homes and commissioned to each architect with a carte blanche.

Grenoble: quel AVENIR pour la tour de Portzamparc à l'Esplanade ?

Grenoble: quel AVENIR pour la tour de Portzamparc à l'Esplanade ? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

En imaginant la future Esplanade de Grenoble, l’architecte en charge du dossier, Christian de Portzamparc, a placé au nord une tour d’une centaine de mètres. Dès la présentation de son projet, cet édifice a été vivement contesté. En mai, lors des dernières présentations au public des aménagements, la tour avait simplement disparu des images de synthèse. Et dans nos colonnes, l’architecte soulignait que cette tour « n’était pas gravée dans le bronze », qu’elle n’était « en aucun cas une nécessité ». Aujourd’hui, l’adjoint à l’Urbanisme, Philippe de Longevialle, ne revient pas sur ces propos, mais ne dit pas officiellement non à une tour. « Cette tour était un signal d’entrée de ville. C’est le contexte économique et la demande qui feront que cette tour se fera ou ne se fera pas. » Sur nos photos : une maquette présentée en janvier 2010 où figure une tour. Et ses dernières illustrations, sans la tour…

[Karlsruhe, Germany] German Kindergarten Designed as a Giant Cat | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Kindergarten Die Katze is a children's school in Wolfartsweier near Karlsruhe, Germany built in the adorable likeness of a giant, white cat. Designed by artist Tomi Ungerer and architect Ayla-Suzan Yöndel, the educational venue adds a dose of whimsy for children to take delight in going to school. Each day, students are given the opportunity to playfully enter through the mouth of the cat into the spirited belly of the cuddly feline where the space is built to house 100 children.

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) have unveiled a three story flat-pack house in the courtyard of London’s Royal Academy of Arts (RA). Designed as an answer to the UK’s urgent need for cost-effective housing, the prototype demonstrates a method of building “high-quality, well-designed houses significantly cheaper than other traditional methods of construction.”

RSHP, known for their large-scale projects, envisage Homeshell as part of a wider platform which could encompass apartments, schools, factories and healthcare centers.
