Focusing on ideas and projects that redefine a city, Zinneke Architects have shared with us their Parking in Setif project where they adapt to the historical context of the surrounding buildings. With the ability to work during the night and day, this design is a proposal to help the second largest in Algeria relieve their traffic congestion brought about by its fast-growing urban fabric. More images and architect’s description after the break.

Following a recent ceremony in Rabat, Morroco, Agence pour l’Aménagement de la Vallée du Bouregreg (The Bouregreg Valley Development Agency) verified that architectural designs will be provided by Zaha Hadid Architects. The program will include three theater spaces, indoor spaces consisting of 2,050-seat and a 520-seat, and a fully-equipped outdoor amphitheater holding up to 7,000 people. The theaters will share back of house facilities, efficiently reducing the size of the building services needed. Creative studios will also be incorporated into this cultural venue. Estimated cost is at 120 Million Euros for the Rabat Grand Theatre.

This workshop will cover advanced parametric topics such as data structure manipulation as well as design strategies that incorporate Simulation and Genetic Algorithms in a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment. An optional third workshop day is offered to those participants desiring further time to develop individual projects or lines of research.
Attendance will be limited to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors. Participants should be familiar with the basic concepts of parametric design and interface of Grasshopper.

The Pixel House designed by Mass Studies in collaboration with Slade Architecture in Gyeonggido, Korea, thoughtfully incorporated the needs of their client, a young family of four. There is a vagueness between public and private space, landscaping and building, which was the intention of both the client and architects.

Since 2000, the MoMA and the P.S.1 have been running a competition under their Young Architects Program, each year inviting a group of emerging architects to experiment with new shapes and materials, resulting in a summer installation at the P.S.1. Past winners include WORK ac (P.F.1. Public Farm 1), MOS (Afterparty) and SO-IL (Pole Dance). Architects Newspaper recently announced the short list for the 2011 summer installation, which includes Interboro Partners (NY), FormlessFinder (NY), Matter Architecture Practice (NY) MASS Design Group (Boston) and IJP Corporation Architects (London). Matter Architecture practice was already invited to the 2008 competition, which also happened to MOS back in 2007, then winners in 2009. As usual expect a complete coverage here at ArchDaily, we look forward to see all the projects!

Inspired by Paul Rudolph’s Umbrella House of 1953, the Solar Umbrella provides a contemporary reinvention of the solar canopy—a strategy that provides thermal protection in climates with intense exposures. Nestled amidst a neighborhood of single story bungalows the residence establishes a precedent for the next generation of California modernist architecture. Located on a 41’ wide x 100’-0” long through lot, the new addition transforms the architects’ existing 650 square foot bungalow into a total 1,900 square foot residence equipped for responsible living in the twenty-first century.
