With the advantage of geography, Shenzhen Shajing has largely developed the low-end manufacturing industry in the past two or three decades. The mass construction of factories not only destroyed the scenery wetland and farmland, but also brought chaos to the nearby suburb. Industrial parks and external urban spaces form negative places. In recent years, many residential buildings and schools were built around the industrial park.

June 6, 2019 Pilar Caballero 0

Canada’s first “bookless” library dedicated to Makerspaces, the Idea Exchange Old Post Office offers Cambridge residents free access to an array of spaces for learning and creativity, and a new, central hub for meeting and socializing. Anchored on the bank of the Grand River, the project reignites a landmark — a listed 1885 masonry post office that had fallen into serious disrepair — and adds a 9,000-square-foot transparent pavilion that wraps around the original building and stretches out over the water, revealing the conviviality within to passersby, enticing them in.

April 22, 2019 Daniel Tapia 0

Build a supportive and Pacific world just will be possible with the reunion from all people ‘stones’. Two big concrete walls (cyclopean on appearance). Built with a large variety of stones, from different origins and colors – sandstone, granite, basalt, marble, limestone, etc. – will structure physical and symbolically the new Shalom community center. Stones that perpetuate the memories from a time (or time memories), brought from most different nooks by everyone that take part from Shalom community activities.

April 19, 2019 Andreas Luco 0

A house with many inhabitants. A collaborative project between VGC, ADO Icarus and the City of Brussels includes public programme with a podium, local service centre, community center and a library. These public functions are traditionally arranged adjacent to one another around a public space – e.g. a square – each with its own front door and its own interpretation of the transition from public to private space, from openness to seclusion, depending on the specific context of each function.
