There is a small house in a large garden filled with numerous plants brought from different parts of the world. It was designed, built and cultivated by my father. Over several years the place was an oasis, retreat and meeting space for our family. We all witnessed how it changes and evolves with seasons and years, learning about and from nature.
H71a was a shop adjacent to the timber house at Hverfisgata 71. In 2001 Studio Granda converted the house into a studio, office and archive for photographer Sigurgeir Sigurjónsson. The shop, that had an unsound structure, was left vacant.
Reconozco en el entrevistado, que critica por falto de rigor un sistema educativo que minimizó la importancia de los suspensos buscando construir una sociedad que no sólo juzgase a sus alumnos por su rendimiento, al profesor que cierto día, tras haberme suspendido y pasar por su cátedra,
The project concerns in the construction of 27 cost-controlled houses, being the essential aim of the project to ensure a cost-optimization quality of dwellings. The rationality of space solotions tries to ensure the satisfaction of the exercise of the family life activities.
Red organic forms highlighted with strokes of white paint gently swarm across the courtyard of Beit Al Serkal. Imran Qureshi applies his training in miniature painting to this large-scale installation, made in response to the architecture.
Conceptually we created a Mumbai City Museum Extension that doesn't occupy much of the ground plane of the site. It lifts itself up from the site to create an open connection from the ES Patanwala Marg to the existing museum and to create direct visual connections with the city and the zoological gardens.
L’objectiu d’aquest projecte era de proporcionar un habitatge adaptat a les necessitats d’en Lluís, que a causa d’un accident va perdre la mobilitat i es desplaça amb una cadira de rodes.
En Lluis va trobar una parcel·la que tot i tenir una forma trapezoïdal, només té un veí al costat oest i en els altres tres limita amb el carrer al Nord, una plaça pública a l’est i una riera al sud. Per tant es una parcel·la molt exposada a l’espai públic, que és una virtut que el projecte haurà de gestionar per a garantir també certa privadesa.
In 2010 a German advertising agency approached me to design them a low cost workplace in the Black Forest. They had set their mind to using shipping containers so using that as a starting point we evolved this space for them.
In order to facilitate the implementation of future structures, the wish of the local authorities was for a school as much as possible integrated with the surrounding farm buildings. The school was to be the first phase of the future schooling complex development. In this spirit, the courtyard was designed as another village square, and the architecture of the building to recall correspondences with the existing agricultural structures in the area.
A patio house adapted to the topography of the terrain. This would be the short definition of the project. Within the definition there are two concepts: first, it is about a patio house; second, it is a house adapted to the terrain of the slope.
Unveiled a new project by Herzog & de Meuron, a 720m2 Miu Miu building on Miyuki Street in the Aoyama District of Tokyo. Based in Paris, Miu Miu was established by Miuccia Prada in 1993 as a platform for design explorations beyond her legendary Prada line. Since opening its first boutique in Aoyama in 1999, Miu Miu has maintained a significant presence in Japan and now has 23 boutiques across the country including nine in Tokyo alone.
The first building to be designed and developed as a part of the complex is Rebel One. It is one of two architectural dominants planned in the project that are of a compact plan with 12 superstructures located at the shorter sides of the main alley. Rebel One elevations, the outpost of the new investments in the Soho area, refer to the architectural motives of industrial relicts of Kamionek.
This work is dedicated to the Soviet epoch people, the creators of the most powerful non-capitalistic modernization of the past century, the last mediums of historical consciousness. Senior citizens, dependants, odd people who are barely tolerated on the celebration of parting with the history. Intimidated and dependent, they cast a vote in exchange for food packages and electoral allowances for retiring pension.
Ojalá es la respuesta arquitectónica a la diversidad social del barrio de Malasaña. Una diversidad que se manifiesta en la vida cotidiana como una acumulación de formas diferentes de conversar, de encontrarse, de comer y de beber.
The iconic tower designed by Jean Nouvel at the center of Nicosia, next to Eleftheria Square transforms the city silhouette of Nicosia. The program includes 10-story residential apartments, a 6-story office space and a 2-story retail area, plus 3 levels of basements where parking spots and storage areas are located.
This verticality in relation to the horizontality of the medieval walls and the moat that enclose the old part of the city sets the stage for a series of inversions that are characteristic of the building. The 67 meter high building will be the culminating landmark of the city.
Hacía muchos años que en Cal Xico no vivía nadie, hasta que la Fundación Solà de La Fatarella planteó su re-habitación. El objetivo era volver a darle vida, y nuestro trabajo consistió en volver a darle aquella vida, sobre todo haciendo revivir su memoria, esto sí, con los mínimos medios.
Predicting the future is a risky job. In the rapidly changing world predictions rarely come true. Accepting an invitation to a closed competition for the concept of the Apartment of the Future (located in the centre of the Dobrodzień Interior Design Park Dobroteka) we envisaged a place that would be timeless, universal, but simultaneously distinctive, even unique. During more than two years of work on the project we were striving to create an open space, responding to changes in technology, furniture and diverse needs and behaviors of users.
Directly adjacent to the new RiverWalk, and in between the historic Simmons Mattress Factory, now converted to a restaurant building, and the new pedestrian bridge by RFR to St. Patrick’s Island, the M2 Mixed Use Building’s oddly shaped lot presents different contexts on each side and no backside.
IaaC, in collaboration with Map13 Architects: Marta Domenech, David Lopez, Mariana Palumbo, and BLOCK Research Group, ETH Zurich, have finalized the Parametrized Catalan Vault, fruit of a 2 week-long workshop where a team of 27 Students designed and constructed a thin-tile vault in our forest campus in Valldaura.
Our contemporary times are – for virtually the first time in history – defined by two antagonistic forces rarely in accord: innovation and comfort. In fact, they can work powerfully against one another, illustrating an often minimized conflict in our times and in our society, particularly in the Swiss context.
The Radic pavilion has been reinstalled in Hauser & Wirth's Somerset Oudolf Field at Durslade Farm, Bruton. Designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radić, the pavilion was first unveiled as the Serpentine Gallery 2014 Pavilion. The pavilion sits naturally within the landscape at Hauser & Wirth Somerset; positioned at the end of Oudolf Field – the landscaped garden designed by Piet Oudolf – it creates a dialogue between the gallery complex and pavilion, and their relationship with the garden. Visitors to the arts centre will have the opportunity to walk around, through and underneath the pavilion. To coincide with the launch of the pavilion, a series of exhibitions, events and installations on the theme of architecture has been programmed.
Un antiguo almacén ocupa el corazón de una manzana del ensanche al que se accede por un túnel que atraviesa las crujías residenciales. Allí se despliega un programa formado por dependencias para el almacenaje y manejo de obras, áreas administrativas y de reunión, espacios para la experimentación y proyectos específicos; y una gran sala central que es el centro del programa.
Guangzhou is a modern city, in permanent evolution and expansion.
The project of the new Guangzhou Museum that will exhibit in particular elements of the city history, leads us to consider the history of the foundation of the city, in relation with it’s further development.
Lassnig’s main preoccupation was a relentless selfquestioning, she painted, wrote, drew and filmed... She sees through her body. Untiringly, she repeatedly posed the same questions and depicted the tensions between the inside (of her body, her work) and the outside (what she saw, the way she was seen).
The surrounding context is animated through its two-sidedness: on one hand, panoramas towards the lake, and on the other hand, the warmth of the sun. This dialogue between view and sunlight results in a compact building volume oriented towards both of these elements.

El acceso al complejo se realiza por la zona nordeste y sudeste de la parcela, a través de un espacio con una suave pendiente, delimitado por el volumen del pabellón multiusos y por un volumen longitudinal, a partir del cual se desarrolla el acceso a las diferentes instalaciones. La distribución por los distintos usos se realiza a partir de un vestíbulo que comunica las diversas instalaciones entre ellas, y estas con los servicios administrativos y el restaurante.
Commissioned by the innovative Chinese real estate company, Vanke, the pavilion was inspired by traditional Chinese landscape painting—rock formations, rice fields, and prehistoric outcrops. The pavilion aims to tell the story of civilization, technology and the 21st Century as well as offer a space for reflection and a celebration of different cultures.
Para llegar a la casa se deberá atravesar por un bosque de álamos plateados y criollos que funcionarán como un pasaje de desaceleración entre el exterior urbano y el interior doméstico. El bosque, además, le conferirá privacidad visual a una casa muy transparente donde sus espacios principales están abiertos hacia el jardín que coincide con la orientación norte.
