More images and architects’ description after the break. The current generation of college graduates in China faces numerous difficulties; it is hard to find good jobs and hard to find affordable housing. The term Ants Tribe, coined by Lian Si, professor at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, was meant to describe a group of smart but individually insignificant young people who draw strength by gathering together in large communities. The requested residential units are very small. Almost 1000 units have to be divided over the 10 buildings.

Their design includes a huge cube on an urban plaza. The interior space of this suspended cube is integrated and has not been divided to specified floors as the usual buildings. It consists of several moving galleries where the exterior walls are also good places for displaying the art works. More images and architects’ description after the break. Some of these galleries move horizontally to left and right and others move vertically up and down. Moving galleries create a dynamic space inside and outside the museum that changes throughout time and its organization depends on the galleries’ motions. Oasia Downtown / WOHA. Oasia Downtown, designed by WOHA, sets out to create an alternative imagery for commercial high-rise developments.

Roberto Riofrío Navarro, Arq. Ecological Skyscraper in Paris with Green Terraces in Each Floor. French architect Jaubert Francois proposes a new skyscraper for Paris that consists of two towers joined by a vertical park that starts at the ground plane and finishes at a soccer pitch on the rooftop.

Ecological Skyscraper in Paris with Green Terraces in Each Floor

The “Hyper-Tower” is a mixed-use development with residential and sports facilities on the top levels and commercial and leisure areas in the first floors. The structure is a reinterpretation of the Arche de La Defense but instead of creating an un-programmed void, Jaubert Francois creates a lush garden for the city. The interior spaces spill into the green void through terraces in each level. To commemorate the 9th Annual Skyscraper Competition, eVolo is publishing the Limited Edition Book "eVolo Skyscrapers 2" which is the follow-up to its highly acclaimed book “eVolo Skyscrapers”. The 628-page book examines 150 projects received during the last years of the competition. -> EVOLO SKYSCRAPERS 2 - Limited Edition Book.

“The Cloud”, el polémico proyecto residencial de MVRDV

Lo que el equipo de diseño nunca se esperó fue la similitud que muchas personas encontraron con la polvorienta nube de escombros que provocaron las explosiones en el trágico evento del 11/9, acusando al proyecto de ser intencionalmente diseñado para evocar este suceso. Fue tal el impacto en los medios que MVRDV debió pedir disculpas públicas por el mal entendido. foto via ¿Qué opinan ustedes con respecto a este supuesto parecido? 82 Viviendas en Carabanchel / ACM Arquitectos. © Miguel de Guzmán Arquitectos: ACM Arquitectos ( Atxu Amann, Andrés Cánovas, Nicolás Maruri) Ubicación: Avenida de la Peseta.
