Centro de Interpretación del Conjunto Arqueológico de San Esteban / Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra.

This Student-Run Website Is Experimenting With Architecture Through Cubes This Student-Run Website Is Experimenting With Architecture Through Cubes From the first moment you enter architectural education, tutors tell you repeatedly and often passionately that the learning never stops; this is how it is going to be from now on.
Student platforms are an example of our efforts to share our discoveries, many emerging out of the tension between academia and independent learning. From the post-digital advocate KoozA/rch to university publications like The Bartlett's Lobby, AA files, or Yale School of Architecture’s Perspecta, research and media platforms represent the creative consciousness of our generation today. Volume64 is a recent newcomer born out of this tension, and behind it is a team myself and my colleagues have founded and run. Through ArchDaily, we’re sharing a little bit of our story so far. Zaha Hadid Architects Unveil Photographs of "World's Tallest Atrium" Under Construction in Beijing. Zaha Hadid Architects Unveil Photographs of "World's Tallest Atrium" Under Construction in Beijing Zaha Hadid Architects have released new photos showcasing the ongoing construction progress of Leeza SOHO, a mixed-use office tower in Beijing's Lize Financial Business District.
This twisting, contorted structural skeleton, which weaves together two separate sections of the tower and visually fuses them, will house the world's tallest atrium, rising the full height of the building. The 172,800sqm building straddles a new subway tunnel that diagonally divides the site. According to the architects, the tower is designed to "rise as a single volume, divided into two halves. " As the tower rises, the diagonal axis through the site—defined by the subway tunnel—is re-aligned by ‘twisting’ the atrium forty five degrees to orientate the atrium’s higher floors with the historic north-south/east-west axes on which the Chinese capital was founded.

Kengo Kuma & Associates Unveils Stacked Timber Museum in Turkey. Kengo Kuma & Associates Unveils Stacked Timber Museum in Turkey Kengo Kuma & Associates has unveiled their design for the Odunpazari Modern Art Museum, currently under construction in Eskisehir, Turkey, a city well-regarded for its university and young, lively population.
Borrowing from the scale and materiality of traditional Ottoman wooden houses, the museum seeks to become a new cultural venue that both stands out and integrates into the existing streetscape. The new museum will be located in the neighborhood known as Odunpazari (“wood market” in Turkish), an area of the city home to intimate, meandering streets and historic Ottoman homes that feature cantilevered upper levels. Speculative Project Seeks to Take Advantage of NYC Air Rights for Affordable Housing. Speculative Project Seeks to Take Advantage of NYC Air Rights for Affordable Housing Beomki Lee and Chang Kyu Lee of Atelier L have unveiled their speculative project, Instant City: Living Air-Right, which proposes that affordable housing and public programs be built in the air rights of existing buildings in New York City.
As a response to the lack of home ownership in the city, the project aims to provide living space, as well as to foster community in an overlooked space. Because air rights space in New York varies in different geographic areas, the project can be customizable to whichever space it is applied to. Ribbon Chapel. Löyly.
