The Pierre

Vacker villa av Young & Young I Franklin, Michigan ligger villan här ovan. Jag vet rätt lite om den vackra villan men jag vet att den är ritad av Young & Young Architects och helt och hållet konstruerad av insulating concrete forms, som är frigolitformar fyllda med cement som både är starka och isolerar väl. Young & Young Architects jobbar med det de kallar “orcanic architecture”och är medlem av The U.S. Green Building Council så valet av ett energisnålt byggmaterial som insulating conrete forms känns rätt logiskt. Fler bilder av villan efter hoppet så klart… Plats: Franklin, Michigan, USA Kund: Privat Byggnadstyp: Villa Arkitekt: Young & Young Architects > Young & Young Architects Go on House D Som utlovat så kommer här ännu ett inlägg med ett hus signerat slovenska arkitektbyrån Bevk Perović arhitekti.

When you're an architect... I love what I do. There is no question in my mind that I made the right decision when I was 5 years old to become an architect. Sure there have been some bumps along the way and there is uncertainty in my future. Despite having been at this for a while, some things you just have to discover for yourself. I collected these off twitter a few weeks ago, thinking that I might find use for them. · you have probably heard all 1,000 songs off your ipod in just one night

Nicolai Ouroussoff Diamond in the Rough By NICOLAI OUROUSSOFF The Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao may favor Brutalist forms, but with her signature light touch she’s creating her country’s most elegant buildings. CNC carpentry: the 'selfsupportingframework' Two students working on load-bearing systems in the architecture department at Kassel University, Mischa Proll and Andreas Günther, have taken advantage of the wide range of design techniques available and breathed new life into a one-hundred-year-old construction concept. The traditional reziprocal frame consists of short wooden joists, whose ends are carpentry-joined to a surface structure. With consistant types of profiles, lengths of elements and positions of the knots on the axises, a dome shape is created.

Front to Back Infill / Colizza Bruni Architecture Architect: Colizza Bruni Architecture Inc. / James Colizza & Anthony Bruni Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Project Area: 111 sqm Project Year: 2008 Photographs: Peter Fritz Front to back infill is an animated, front to back semi-detached which boasts two small yet spacious light-filled homes. The design was a collaboration of two architects, each designing one of the homes, and working together to fuse the two designs seamlessly into one another. The approach was to situate the two homes front to back instead of the traditional side to side. One home would face the street and engage the public realm, while the other would inhabit the private realm of the rear yard. Each unit is designed to take advantage of its exclusive position on the site resulting in two unique homes with their own distinctive character and personality.

Influenced by a range of schools of architecture, Eixample Barcelona was designed in a grid pattern with long streets, wide avenues, and rounded street corners. Despite being in the center of a thriving European metropolis, the district provides improved living conditions for inhabitants including extensive sun light, improved ventilation, and more open green space for public use. And of course, the result from the grid-like structure is astounding from above:
