Masjid E Zubaida / Neogenesis

February 6, 2023 Andreas Luco 0

A Masjid, usually a quintessential Islamic building, is a “place of prostration”, which means ‘kneeling’. Islamic architecture is not regional. Over the years, most of the pre-Islamic vernacular forms and characteristics have gradually become an eclectic mix of the elements and characteristics of areas where Islam had spread. Unlike historical monumental mosques, contemporary mosques are designed to exhibit these transformed forms establishing a unique identity of their own; ‘Masjid-e-Zubaida’ being one such example.

Arginvecchio Pavilion / Grazzini Tonazzini + Giorgia Colombo Architetto

February 5, 2023 Andreas Luco 0

A small-scale project, if well-conceived, has the power to produce wider impacts and is able to awaken the interest of individuals and enhance the understanding of a given context. The Arginvecchio installation sets up a temporary exhibition pavilion, an ephemeral object that explores the poetic role of architecture. The project is an enclosure that houses a small abandoned rural hut, a testimony, in its simplicity, of the authenticity and archetypal value of minor buildings.

Spotlight on Africa’s brief was to build and operate a Maternity Centre in order to reduce one of the world’s highest Maternal Mortality Rates (“MMR”) in the Bukasakya sub-county of Mbale, Eastern Uganda. Women are 56 times more likely to die in childbirth in the Mbale District of Uganda than in the UK. These extraordinary rates of mortality would be significantly reduced and preventable deaths would be eradicated by the provision of a Maternity Centre, which is now urgently needed.

House Mesh / Caramel Architekten

The main aim of the design and the client’s request was a future-oriented handling of materials and a building that was integrated into the environment. A generous green roof as a cut-out and folded landscape forms the largest space-forming element of the house. The lightweight timber construction with a ventilated metal facade and large glass elements form the remaining outer skin surfaces.
