In response to an international design-build competition, our team proposed a quintessentially Californian approach embracing many ideas still new to Asia, from where most of us hail. We also focused on a heavy timber construction technique coming from the US, which uses large sections of wood.

18 Cool Examples of Architecture for Kids Designing for kids is certainly not child’s play.

18 Cool Examples of Architecture for Kids

Whilst the design process is undertaken by adults, the end users are often children, such is the case in kindergarten, schools, and parks. Architects have a responsibility, therefore, to ensure that the built environment offers children the chance to play, explore, and learn in physical space, even in a digital age. With that in mind, here are 18 cool spaces designed especially for children – environments which may perhaps inspire the Fosters, Hadids, and Le Corbusiers of tomorrow.

Architectural Drawings: 8 Circular Plans That Defy Convention. It may come as a surprise, then, that some of the most popular projects in this year’s A+Awards possessed a circular or ring-shaped layout, or a plan consisting of several circular spaces linked together in a chain.

Architectural Drawings: 8 Circular Plans That Defy Convention

What drew voters to these projects in spite of — or perhaps because of — their convention-busting curves? We explore the evidence below, and also look at a couple of iconic plans from yesteryear that broke the mold by going full circle. GRAN MEDITERRANEO by ARCHITECTURES DAVID TAJCHMAN, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel (concept) David Tajchman’s firm won an A+Award, capturing the popular vote in one of the unbuilt residential categories for its innovative, 21st-century reimagining of the high-rise in Tel Aviv, Israel. The project harnesses a particular advantage of circle-shaped plans: the ability to create continuous, curving façades that offer panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Tropical Modernism: 10 Cultural Projects Enveloped by Nature. All architecture mediates context.

Tropical Modernism: 10 Cultural Projects Enveloped by Nature

Whether designed to embrace or enclose, every building exists within unique cultural and environmental conditions. Specifically designed to address a range of natural elements, tropical architecture focuses on issues of ventilation, integration and climate. Made to reorganize and contrast their surroundings, these projects showcase the tension between functional structures and organic contexts. They are designs that are defined by materials and building envelopes. Exploring tropical architecture through the lens of modernism, the following collection draws together 10 cultural projects from the Architizer database.

Perez Art Museum Miami by ArquitectonicaGEO and Herzog & de Meuron, Miami, Fla, United States Reinterpreting and embracing the surrounding context, the Perez Art Museum was designed with careful attention to nature, public space and climate.
