AGi Architects | Wall House

AGi Architects | Wall House | Contemporary Architecture and Design | Scoop.it
http://www.agi-architects.com/#!works/residential-home-Wall-House"

As in the famous Lewis Carroll tale, Wall House is not what it seems. Is it a fortress that closes itself to the world? Or is it an isolated place that avoids all communication with the exterior? Not at all! Wall House communicates with its formalized solid skin, an existing concern in the city. It is the expression of those thoughts: “the all judging peeping tom”, “windows that looks towards the place where nobody wants to be watched”, “opened facades show only false and preconceived realities”.

AGi Architects | Qatar Courthouse | Institutional Architecture

AGi Architects | Qatar Courthouse | Institutional Architecture | Contemporary Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

 

Institutional buildings need to embody the ideals and value system of any given society, with order being one of the core principles of any group. No society can prosper and thrive without it. Order is structure, it is the law, it is justice; without it, there is chaos. It is therefore extremely important that the Qatar Court House be aspirational and reflect these basic principles.

Contemporary Religious Buildings Collection

Contemporary Religious Buildings Collection | Contemporary Architecture and Design | Scoop.it
Deeply rooted in tradition, the religious buildings of the past were a dominant didactic figure - in social life, but also in architecture as seen in Ludwig Wittgenstein's claim that architecture 'compels and glorifies ... where there is nothing to glorify there can be no architecture'.

A new point of view emerged in the 1920s New York City setting of The Fountainhead with Howard Roark's Temple Dedicated to the Human Spirit. It seemed both religious buildings and architecture were on the threshold of being revolutionized and democratized although - outside literary fiction - the actual process of change took off a couple of decades later and still stays limited to only certain areas of the world.

The religious buildings of our own immediate present are very much on the neutral artistic side - more akin to museums, galleries or culture centres than to institutional buildings. Aesthetics, inventive lighting, distinctive looks are all of great importance in making today's religious buildings immediately recognizable, easy to embrace and identify with, more related to their audience and surroundings.
