Avdio Video Disco (I listen, I see, I learn), Middle school complex for 700 students + Auditorium in Martigny, Switzerland. The complex is related to the existing context on two main levels.
The first is on the landscape scale: The building confronts the mountains at the borders of the city creating a feeling of inclusion within a panorama constantly above the horizon. The height variations reflect the existing skyline, while the excavations relate to the feeling / perception of constant inclusion in a higher context. At the same time the plan takes into account and reinforces the local urban system, characterized by an alternation of empty and full spaces. The project gives the site a strong and recognizable structure to make the nature of outdoor spaces more clear and readable.
Two different types of open spaces are generated by the building: the public ones dedicated to the city, and the courtyards (semi-open spaces), reserved to the students of the school.

Sitio y paisaje (reino público) Como parte del plan de reinserción social del gobierno local, en esta área se construyó el segundo metrocable, cuya primera estación está situada a metros de la biblioteca y se conecta con un área peatonal por medio de explanadas verdes que siguen la pendiente natural del terreno.
El lote, que se encontraba vacío, está delimitado en su borde sur por una cárcel; desarrollándose y abriéndose hacia el lado opuesto, la biblioteca retoma la topografía del lugar y se apoya en la pendiente que desciende en sentido sur-norte. De este modo, el proyecto se conforma como una arquitectura de ladera y genera conexiones con el entorno. Frente a la fachada norte, que es la única que se desarrolla como un único plano y sobre un mismo nivel, en el punto más bajo de la biblioteca, se extiende una gran terraza urbana plantada con acacias. Este circuito y explanada-parque puede tomarse también desde la terraza escalonada que acompaña el perfil de la fachada occidental.

This Recreation of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is Built with Shipping Containers All the world’s a stage – quite literally so, in the case of the Container Globe, a proposal to reconstruct a version of Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre with shipping containers.
Staying true to the design of the original Globe Theatre in London, the Container Globe sees repurposed containers come together in a familiar form, but in steel rather than wood. Founder Angus Vail hopes this change in building component will give the Container Globe both a "punk rock" element and international mobility, making it as mobile as the shipping containers that make up its structure.
The project has been spearheaded by Vail, with Nicholas Leahy of Perkins Eastman acting as the project’s lead architect and Michael Ludvik as structural engineer.
