La Sabana tropical africana abarca un inmenso ámbito de diversidad cultural y climática. El proyecto de Escuela rural propuesto define un prototipo capaz de enraizar en los distintos territorios de esta franja continental mediante la adaptación a sus múltiples condiciones medioambientales, programáticas y constructivas. Muoto. Public Condenser | Low-cost flexible university building .


Paris Muoto architects . photos: © Maxime Delvaux . + Holcim Awards The project is a public facility, situated on the new campus of Paris-Saclay. The building hosts a mix of activities including indoor and outdoor sports facilities, a restaurant, cafeteria, and various public spaces: a pedestrian square, street terraces, park areas for deliveries, bikes and cars. The building is organised vertically with its different activities superimposed on one another, using the roof as a panoramic playground for football and basketball games.

It is a shared facility, encouraging the encounter of various populations living close to one another, but rarely meeting. The building has been conceived as a minimal structure, using rough materials, robust and long lasting techniques. Muoto . Public Condenser Low-cost flexible university building . Paris (1) Gallery of Community Primary School for Girls / Orkidstudio - 1. Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes by Robert Louis Stevenson on Undiscovered Scotland. Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes, by Robert Louis Stevenson First published in 1879, Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes is amongst the most personal and vivid of Robert Louis Stevenson's books.

Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes by Robert Louis Stevenson on Undiscovered Scotland

Part guide book, part social commentary, this book gives a fascinating insight into Auld Reekie: the Edinburgh of another era. At the time Picturesque Notes was published, RLS's views of his native city were controversial, to the point where the edition reproduced here carries a footnote in the first chapter setting out the author's response to criticisms of it. Like other eBooks whose texts are reproduced on Undiscovered Scotland, Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes, by Robert Louis Stevenson is long out of copyright. What sets the Undiscovered Scotland version apart is the cross linking between the text of the book and features elsewhere on the site, allowing the reader to explore beyond the text itself, finding out more about the places and people mentioned. PIERRE-ALAIN DUPRAZ. New kindergarten .


Prangins PIERRE-ALAIN DUPRAZ . photos: © Thomas Jantscher The new Prangins kindergarten is conceived as one big house that has been placed on a sloping site. The cruciform structure resulting from the interlocking volumes allow it to have a special relationship with the neighbouring ensemble. The four volumes, which are mutually staggered by a third of each unit’s floor height and interleaved, make the building appear to be smaller and visually less obtrusive.

The six classrooms are organised in groups of two and occupy the three lower volumes. Yotoco Music School / Espacio Colectivo Arquitectos.

Yotoco Music School / Espacio Colectivo Arquitectos

BACKGROUND After ESPACIO COLECTIVO ARQUITECTOS won the design competition for the “music school” prototype organized by the Ministry of Culture of Colombia, arises the need to generate a second prototype that adapts to much smaller places, and to have greater coverage in the different municipalities of the country. This is how a “prototype 2″ is proposed, which arises from a variation of the initial prototype, without losing the conceptual approach to the project.
