The new Abu Dhabi International Airport by KPF was approved yesterday, so we decided to prepare a little round up on some great projects we’ve featured before by the firm founded by Eugene Kohn, William Pedersen and Sheldon Fox in 1976.
Early in 2011, we featured the INCS Zero Factory and showroom in Nagano, Japan. We also featured One Jackson Square, where KPF transformed an existing surface parking lot into a mixed use development within Greenwich Village of Manhattan that received an AIA Honor Award. The FIU Chapman Graduate School of Business in Miami was another great one you can’t miss, same as the China National Offshore Oil Corporation Headquarters in Beijing. KPF also worked in Paris, where they designed the Tour First. Finally, don’t miss our very own interviews with founders Gene Kohn and Bill Pedersen. Enjoy!

AD Classics: Sydney Opera House / Jørn Utzon
There are few buildings as famous as the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia. Arguably considered the eighth wonder of the world, the opera house has a long history behind its design. The story behind this magnificent structure began in 1956 when the New South Wales Government called an open competition for the design of two performance halls, for opera and for symphony concerts, that would put Sydney on the map (read more…) (more…)

The Braga Municipal Stadium located in Portugal was designed by 2011 Pritzker Prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura. The ceremony for the Pritzker Prize (which we attended) was held just a few short weeks ago in New York City. Delivering a speech for the award winner, President Barack Obama spoke of Souto de Moura’s use of materials and attention to detail, specifically siting the Braga Municipal Stadium as “perhaps Eduardo’s most famous work” where he “took great care to position the stadium in such a way that anyone who couldn’t afford a ticket could watch the match from the surrounding hillside.” (read more…) (more…)
It’s our eight selection of previously featured refurbishment projects and we’re still featuring some of the best ones we published back in 2009! Check them all after the break.
Khan house / drdh architects
drdh architects sent us this house with a long previous story. Speculatively built by 19th Century developers, it has been adapted and distorted over time to suit circumstance – acquiring a single storey shop and basement, an extra storey, a cantilevered lavatory and a garage. Of more immediate concern was the basement, where the floor had been dug out and the corbels sheared off the party walls, to provide extra space (read more…) (more…)
