[Ljubljana, Slovenia] Video: Baroque Court Apartments / OFIS Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Created by Carniolus, the video above very elegantly gives you a pretty good description of the Baroque Court Apartments, designed by OFIS Architects. A residential block in the historic city center of Ljubljana, Slovenia, the project is positioned to feature an internal courtyard and open-air contemporary glass light well. The inward-facing transparent enclosure was revitalized to create opportunities for communication between apartments at different levels.

[Pristina, Kosovo] Paolo Venturella architecture: solar powered mosque

[Pristina, Kosovo] Paolo Venturella architecture: solar powered mosque | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
the solar powered mosque by paolo venturella architecture is constructed out of a series of louvers, with a facade covered with thin photovoltaic film.

 

the monolithic building proposal by italian architect paolo venturella becomes a urban fulcrum for the city of prishtina in kosovo. by merging the two main 
elements of the mosque - the 'kiblah wall 'dome' - the plan indicates a direction for users to pray, creating a communal space for people to unite. from a 
geometric point of view, the mosque - which faces the mecca - can be seen as a sphere that extrudes out from the wall.

 

the prayer hall is divided into two separated rooms, accommodating a smaller area for praying from monday to thursday, and a larger space for friday and festivals. 
both sections are designed on multiple levels, bringing men and women together at different levels. educational, social, administrative and commercial areas are 
separated from the sacred space above. the shape of the envelope is conceived as a 'double-skin' - generating a circular intervention around the prayer hall. 
made with a series of louvers, the facade is covered with thin photovoltaic film that harvests energy for the mosque and the other services.

MoMA | Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes

MoMA | Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
MoMA presents its first major exhibition on the work of Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, 1887–1965), encompassing his work as an architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer, and photographer. Conceived by guest curator Jean-Louis Cohen, the exhibition reveals the ways in which Le Corbusier observed and imagined landscapes throughout his career, using all the artistic techniques at his disposal, from his early watercolors of Italy, Greece, and Turkey, to his sketches of India, and from the photographs of his formative journeys to the models of his large-scale projects. His paintings and drawings also incorporate many views of sites and cities. All of these dimensions are present in the largest exhibition ever produced in New York of his prodigious oeuvre.

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 ».

The Indicator: The Lure of the Vernacular

The Indicator: The Lure of the Vernacular | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

There is something soothing, even easy about vernacular architecture. It’s the territorial and spatial equivalent to Muzak. It evades and pre-dates the self-conscious identity of glitzy, cutting-edge architecture we are so familiar with today. There is an innocence to the vernacular. These are the buildings and environments of childhood.

This is apparent in the exhibition, In Focus: Ed Ruscha, currently showing at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. What captivates about the shots is that they dare to curate buildings that are usually just part of the background. They become objects of curiosity, spectacles, even
