Lost in Nature, an exhibition on JVA's recent work

13:28 - 30 October, 2009

While looking for works to feature on ArchDaily like a year and a half ago, I was going through a norwegian magazine I found at a friend’s house and saw an enigmatic copper building sitting in the snow: the Svalbard Science Centre (pictured above). Since it was in norwegian, all I could figure out was the name of the practice: JVA.

Kamyk Heritage Park / Tamizo Architects

12:30 - 30 October, 2009

Poland based Tamizo Architects have sent us their latest project, the Kamyk Heritage Park. The idea of the park’s concept was to create a kind of small village with a few different buildings/functions which mix village with contemporary style at the same time.

The plot is located in a small village in Poland called Kamyk. It’s quite big and it’s located in a village landscape plot with two small ponds in the center of it. The main building of the whole concept and a first part of the competition was a restaurant/wedding house building.

Baton Rouge Downtown Library by Trahan Architects, update

18:27 - 29 October, 2009

We have received an update on the design of the Baton Rouge Downtown Library by Trahan Architects, which clarifies several aspects of the circulations, the relation with the surroundings and details of the facade.

The facade looks very interesting, and on the diagrams you can see how the exterior envelope varies along the elevation to achieve the folded paper like look. A detail of the section reveals further information about this.

All the diagrams/drawings, courtesy of Trahan Architects, after the break.

2012 Yeosu Pavilion proposal by PTA

12:30 - 29 October, 2009

Antoine Damery, sent us his design for the Peddle Thorp Architects submission for the international competition for the thematic pavilion of the Expo 2012 in Yeosu, Korea.

The pavilion is prototypical architecture, drawing from the multidisciplinary source of product design- urban planning-architecture and naval design. The pavilion is resolved as a vessel – a floating exhibition space that can be sailed to other cities. It’s an evolution of architecture- a futuristic adaptable living building that can adapt to suit an unknowable future. Its ingenuity will encourage multidisciplinary problem solving through sustainable solutions.
