Kolding Campus In a sustainable class of its own As regards the design of the building, Henning Larsen Architects has not only minimised the need for energy for lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation; the architects have also focused on optimising the passive properties of the building to allow for the shape and construction to contribute to solving some the tasks that would otherwise be solved by means of energy intensive technologies. Daylight is an important parameter in a building to ensure a healthy indoor climate and the well-being of the users. However, the approach should be to balance the inflow of daylight by means of large glass areas and window screenings as large glass areas could also have negative consequences as regards heat loss, increased requirements for cooling and ventilation. In the design phase, focus has been on providing all study and work spaces and teaching rooms with the right amount of daylight.

Spesso nel nostro studio il processo di brainstorming comincia con un’analisi arida e poi, una volta esaminati i fatti, cerchiamo gli elementi buffi o surreali, perché se qualcosa riesce a sorprendere te potrebbe sorprendere anche il mondo intero... / The genesis of something funny and something brilliant or innovative or paradigm changing are very similar. Quite often the brainstorming process in our office starts with a dry analysis and then once we look at the facts we search for things that are surreal or funny, because if there is something surprising to you, it might also be surprising to the world...

Car park at Ørestad Upper Secondary School The identity of the car park is based on its location in the city as well as its function as part of the traffic facilities of Copenhagen, including the airport and metro. The objective of the design is to open up and activate the car park and downplay its warehouse character and technical expression. The intention is to create a safe car park encouraging rational and efficient commercial parking. To achieve this, the entry and exit are located in the same place, one-way traffic by means of ramps has been introduced and focus has been on making it easy for the users to find their way.
Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg The Ravine House is a remarkable statement of modern residential architecture set into an equally remarkable landscape of native vegetation. It is sited immediately adjacent to steeply sloping banks common within the Toronto ravine system. The challenge of the design of the North Garden was to reconcile the relationship of this space and its potential with that of the entry drive, forecourt, and main entrance to the home. To further enhance the already unfolding arrival sequence, the idea of creating a secret garden that was exclusive to the outward views from the house was seized upon. To achieve this, a privacy screen was situated to intervene between the driveway area and the woods.

Vancouver Beach and Howe will be part of a new phase in Vancouver’s very short but extremely successful history of urban policy. It will announce the entry point into downtown Vancouver from Granville Bridge, forming a gateway to the city. The tower and base are a new interpretation of the local typology deemed ‘Vancouverism’ of a new urbanist podium coupled with a slender tower, which seeks to preserve view cones through the city while activating the pedestrian street.

25 Pictures of The Most Comfortably Uncomfortable First World Problems In Africa, they don’t have bread to eat. BUT WHY DOES THAT HAVE TO MEAN THAT THE CHEESE IN MY BURGER IS ESCAPING THE BUNS’ OUTLINE? Have something to say about this post? Umeå School of Architecture As a growth centre for the architecture of the future, Umeå School of Architecture will provide the framework for inspiration and innovation. From the outside, the building has a cubic expression with its larch facades and square windows placed in a vibrant, rhythmic sequence on all sides. The interior space of the building is designed as a dynamic sequence of stairs and split, open floor levels where abstract, white boxes hang freely from the ceiling filtering the light coming in through the high skylights. One of the key objectives has been to create a bright and open study environment where everyone is part of the same room – only separated by the split levels and glass walls of the teaching rooms.
