Light Walls House

Located in Toyokawa city, the “Light Walls House” is a wooden house imagined by Japanese studio mA-style architects. White, minimalist and decorated with plants, this building has a structure which allows the light to reflect on the ground and on the walls in order to create patterns thanks to a trick of shadows and rays.

Modernist Mash-Up | Victoria Lee | Via

There are certain sacred cows in architecture that need to be slaughtered. Or at least made into delicious sandwiches. That is what Syracuse School of Architecture student Victoria Lee whipped up in her undergraduate thesis, Making by Taking: An Investigation of Architectural Appropriation.

Lee, under the tutelage of her project advisor, Assistant Professor Kyle Miller, took four iconic houses from architectural history and mashed them together, creating hybrid monsters with the pieces of each.

Taking cues from our culture of borrowing and simulating, where everything is copied, pasted, and rehashed, Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, Mies’ Farnsworth house, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, and Palladio’s Villa Rotunda were closely analyzed, diagrammed, and removed from their cultural context.

Brion Cemetery by Carlo Scarpa / 1972

One of my favourite buildings by one of my favourite architects. Scarpa was a creative genius with a unique architectural language.

RebildPorten CEBRA

"RebildPorten is a new visitor’s centre and exhibition space for one of the most beautiful and popular tourist destinations in northern Denmark: Rebild Hills and Rold Forest. This area in northern Jutland forms a unique nature reserve, and thus the area holds an extraordinary potential for offering spectacular experiences in this very distinctive rolling landscape. RebildPorten creates a new gathering point that informs, inspires and activates the visitors – an ideal setting for the narrative about the cultural history and nature experiences in these unique surroundings.

RebildPorten’s distinctive expression and character are derived directly from Nature’s own formal language and elements. The structure is designed as a hymn to Nature and the hills and forest, next to which it is situated. It is created in the encounter of building and nature and appears as a sculptural structure made of bluff timber, thus making the building accessible to the eye of the observer – very similar to a forest’s opening and closing when one moves through it, looking upwards through the branches’ chaotic network of crossing lines.”

Russet Residence by Splyce Design

A steep site with mature cedar and douglas fir, and an ocean view, it responds by nestling into the hill while also projecting out over it to maximise views.
