The Green House is the large exhibition greenhouse at the Floriade 2022 in Almere. Constructed entirely from standard greenhouse elements, it shows its special function through the significantly raised central axis. Due to its scale and special silhouette, the greenhouse is a temporary icon of the horticultural sector at the World Horticulture Exhibition.
The restaurant was designed and renovated from a long, tube-shaped house on 53 Hang Chuoi Street, an old Hanoi street, and serves high-quality Japanese grilled beef dishes. A large, old tree on the property plays an important role in the design of the restaurant’s exterior landscape. The common dining area is on the first floor, while the private dining room space is on the second and third floors. The main design concept is to create a space composed of contrasting crystal lights and the soft, deep landscape space outside the restaurant, creating a sense of elegance and sophistication.
This house is located in a recently developed residential area that, as a result of the economic crisis experienced in Spain, is today the only house built there.
As for you, have you ever noticed how the world seems to be made up of edges and sharp corners? Have I drawn your attention to the scarcity of gentle outlines in things? Everything is tough and sharp. I observe, do you observe how it moves without collisions through the edges? Does it seem docile to you, so sinuous, avoiding touches that could hurt it? Well, to me, it seems false; I know its intricacies well and I know every time it has yielded so as not to be hurt by the outside. Look, listen, observe: these sinuosities belong to a snake, not a bird. – Caio Fernando Abreu
Urban Cabinets is a series of housing rehabilitation projects that explore design strategies around the concept of furniture architecture. In each of them, a family of furniture-that-turns-into-spaces configures domesticities halfway between these two scales. The furniture grows, becomes XXL, and is thought architecturally. It values handmade and custom-made materials, artisanally made in small companies, and in whose final execution, different construction trades from both areas will enter into dialogue on-site.
Having recently graduated from university, full of youthful energy and optimism, two college buddies pooled their money to embark on an adventure that wouldn’t fully come to fruition until many years later. They had scraped together just enough cash to purchase a breathtaking plot of land cradled on three sides by the largest national monument in the U.S., Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante. Here, they found paradise.

Santa Casa de Misericórdia de Porto Alegre is an important institution that manages a complex of several hospital buildings, whose layout configures an internal street called “Rua da Saúde”. Due to the established structure, there was previously no contiguous connection between the buildings. The client’s desire was thus to have a connecting roof, which would harmoniously span over the buildings and define a new iconic outside space.
The project is a large-scale installation made for a music festival held in a public park, aimed at raising awareness of the pollution of the oceans by disposable plastics.
