Tim Bacheller shared with us his award for, “Best Multi-Congregation Design’, in the Faith in Place competition. The competition challenged architects to develop creative solutions to serve the needs of modern communities and congregations.

Luanda, which is the capital and largest city in Angola, is located in an area of south-central Africa that is mostly characterized as having poor living conditions for its inhabitants, but is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Atlantic Ocean.

In a competition that encouraged its participants to design a house that foretold the urban future of the city, the collaborative team of Cristina Peres, Diogo Aguiar, Teresa Otto and Tiago Andrade won the 2nd Prize for the International Competition ‘House in Luanda: Patio and Pavillion’ where they responded to what Luanda has to offer and created an idea that would revive society and its economic conditions.

One New Change Opens

One New Change designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel and Sidell Gibson Architects

One New Change, Jean Nouvel and Sidell Gibson Architects’ mixed use facility, has just opened in Cheapside, London. The project includes over 340,000 ft of office space and an additional 220,000 sqf for commercial use. It is set to become London’s newest shopping destination and bring life to the area, “all set overlooking London’s most famous landmark, St. Paul’s Cathedral.” The project has sparked controversy as Sian Disson shared, “…staunch traditionalist Prince Charles made his feelings towards the glass and steel hulk clear from an early stage, attempting to have Nouvel thrown off the project when he learnt of the architect’s appointment.” Contrastly, as we reported earlier this year, the project was awarded by the MIPIM with the jury noting that the project will transform the area bringing a refreshing contrast. While the public voiced their opinion about the color selection, Nouvel’s use of glass provides blurred reflections of the Cathedral to be seen in its facade, gently referencing the historic landmark within its contemporary presence. Which side are you on?
