Both the architectural form and the natural form must follow the physical laws, which are expressed on the basis of the “Truth” and “Beauty” of the form, the relationship between function and form, and the unified principles and laws that can be pursued.Human aesthetic feeling is based on the reality of nature, therefore, beauty and truth are inseparable.
A vibrant community hub. The project is located on a south-facing hillside in the northern part of the Jiangangshan neighborhood in the Baoan District of Shenzhen, China. Twenty years ago, the first batch of garden houses were built between here and it has gradually grown into the largest low-density residential area in western Shenzhen. Its public facilities have not kept pace, with Parkhill Greens and its surrounding streetscapes adding 4,000 square meters of new park land, the only public open space in the neighborhood.
A glazed courtyard occupies the centre of this Florida residence by Seibert Architects, bringing light to the interiors and organising the circulation around the building. Completed earlier this year, the Schechter Residence is a low-slung home that offers its owners a beach-focused lifestyle in Sarasota, Florida. Located just a few metres above from the shore,

A shared vision of the City, Downtown Development Authority, and Old Yellowstone (redevelopment) District as the centerpiece of the downtown revitalization efforts, the project is a year-round outdoor events-driven plaza conceived as a public-private partnership. Informed by a public charrette, the PROGRAM emphasizes “engaging cultural activities” in a region focused on outdoor activity, while the visual identity takes into account the connection to place: the local energy industry, the American West, and proximity to abundant natural beauty – combining to create a community hub.
The RB house proposes a re-functionalization of an existing house located in the Junior neighborhood of the city of Córdoba. The project is for a married couple who want to return to live again in Córdoba and chose a traditional pericentral neighborhood of the city. The characteristics of the neighborhood make us decide on an introverted house with little relation to the street, giving the accent to its interior spaces.
It takes a certain amount of confidence to name a property “Elysium,” the mythological Greek idea of immortal paradise. One step inside this expansive mansion on the island of Mykonos and there is no doubt that such confidence — and such a title — is warranted. This sprawling mansion covers 700 square meters (7500 square […]
Designers have many strategies for creating a sense of harmony in a home, from repeating patterns to restricting materials. One thing they would agree on is that a harmonious look is not the same as one that’s dull or predictable. Anything from super-…
The Unió de Cooperadors de Gavà is an emblematic building, witness of a key historical moment, which arose in 1934 from an initiative of the workshop and industrial workers who joined the cooperative movement and had the vision to commission the building to the architects Josep Lluis Sert and Josep Torres Clavé, members of GATCPAC, who at that time were already prominent and whose works have endured over time.

The result is a work that applies the principles of rationalist architecture. The human dimensions of the project are a clear influence of the Bauhaus School.
DMAA’s design for the new headquarters of Sparkasse Bremen emerged from an invited competition for the development of a site, which is close to Bremen University – at the junction between Universitätsallee and the motorway access road – and offered few clues to designers regarding the shaping of the urban context and the building morphology. The seemingly reserved, standalone building volume defines the location through the inviting gesture of its transparent base, which opens to its surroundings on three sides in the form of full-height glazing.
