Lido Line Competition Entry / [Y/N] Studio

London doesn’t need more green space. 38% of the capital is already green or open space. Might London’s canals help to curate existing forgotten or underused green spaces, kickstarting re-generation in their wake. The city’s canals have lost their original purpose. Built for work they used to carry materials across the length and breadth of London to places of industry. This purpose is largely defunct with the canal being now a place of leisure rather than a place of commerce.

Höweler + Yoon Architecture wins Audi Urban Future Award 2012

Eric Höweler and J. Meejin Yoon of Höweler + Yoon Architecture have been announced as winners of the Audi Urban Future Award 2012, an international architecture competition focused on the future of urban mobility in the five metropolitan regions Boston/Washington, Istanbul, Mumbai, Pearl River Delta, and São Paulo. With “Shareway”, the Boston firm’s winning proposal called for the reinvention of the Boston-Washington, D.C., metropolitan region called “Boswash”.

Höweler+Yoon Architecture was one of the five architectural offices that were selected for the competition. Other participating firms were Superpool (Istanbul), CRIT (Mumbai), Node Architecture & Urbanism (Pearl River Delta), and Urban-Think Tank (São Paulo).

We had the chance to interview the practices and ask them about the role of the architect in our society. We also talked to Eric Höweler about this project during the awards ceremony, video coming soon.

Project Description by Höweler+Yoon Architecture:

Daegu Gosan Public Library Competition Entry / Various Architects

With the library as one of the most ancient architectural types that symbolizes human strive to fixate, collect and preserve knowledge, this proposal for the Daegu Gosan Public Library is based on the concept of a stone monolith as storage of the most important cultural knowledge and historical heritage. Designed by Viktor Kopeikin, Pavel Zabotin, Anna Kosharnaya, and Andrian Sokolovsky, the building of the library is synthesized due to symbiosis of the traditional (identical) and transnational (globalistic). More images and architects’ description after the break.

Innovation Tower, Hong Kong Polytechnic University / Zaha Hadid Architects

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) chose world-renowned architect, Zaha Hadid, as Chief Architect of its new “Innovation Tower”. The project, located at the northeast side of the university campus, will serve as a driving force in the development of Hong Kong as a design hub in Asia. The tower will also provide additional space to facilitate inter-disciplinary research and education in the field of design. The topping-out ceremony was held on September 24. On completion, it will be home to PolyU School of Design (SD) and the newly established Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation. More images and architects’ description after the break.
