Last month we gave we were given an introduction to PIN architecture, a new competition forum slash architectural design conversation from a friend. We thought we would showcase the results from the 1st month of competition. Within this simple 4 inch space the spark of a much larger architectural, design, and social conversation can be had. We are really intrigued as to how long it will take for this to truly take off, as professionals and students alike can challenge their own architectural ideas in a quick and easy format. We encourage you to check out this month’s winners and this month’s new brief after the jump!
COMPETITION: PIN architecture
DESIGNERS: William Su, Gina gage, and Philipp Vargas YEAR: JAN 2013
We at Futures+ want to congratulate our friends Alberto Bottero, Valeria Bruni, Simona Della Rocca, and Fabio Vignolo who have been revealed as the winners of YAP MAXXI 2013. We have seen their winning work all over the map in the past year, and when we saw a glimpse of their final design we knew that they would be the winners. We cannot wait to see this project realized as these young architects hard work is finally paying off in a big way. Make sure to check out HE after the jump!
STUDIO: bam! bottega di architettura metropolitana ARCHITECTS: Alberto Bottero, Valeria Bruni, Simona Della Rocca, Fabio Vignolo
COMPETITION: MAXXI 2013 LOCATION: Rome, Italy YEAR: 2013
Today we are stepping away from the realm for academic architecture, to take a look at an up and coming young architecture design studio, CODA, who recently was selected the annual MOMA PS1 winner. Young Architects Program at MoMA and MoMA PS1 is committed to offering emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects, challenging each year’s winners to develop creative designs for a temporary, outdoor installation at MoMA PS1. CODA’s “Party Wall” sustainable and recycling approach re-uses skateboard bi products to create large shading screen within the PS1 site. F+ is looking forward to checking it out this summer, but you can check out more after the jump!
Some of the best designs and innovations are quick and dirty scribbles on a dirty napkin. So why do architecture competition require 6 boards of pretty images and sections, just to get the root idea across? PIN architecture is a way for students, designers, and professionals to quickly participate in a monthly competition. There is no fee to participate and no eligibility requirements. You are forced to keep your idea within a 4 inch diameter circle. A great competition to help flex professionals and students design muscles in a monthly competition. We look forward to throwing down ourselves and see what comes out of these competitions!
X|A is organizing an international workshop of Advanced Architectural Design, part of an ongoing academic research, which introduces participants into contemporary discussions of formal exploration in Architecture and Art, through technical attainment of design and production. The Omni(progra)chromatic by X|A is under the auspices of Benaki Museum, the Hellenic Institute of Architecture and the Athens School of fine Arts. It is an opportunity for architects, students of Architecture and Art, professionals designers and artists.
It truly doesn’t get any better when you combine architecture, wine, and the beautiful wine country of Spain. It is a rich culture and lifestyle that surrounds these vineyards, that is heavily inundated with Spain’s love for gourmet cuisine. Isabel Rivas & Javier Ureña set out create a space actually within the landscape to stand as an actual cultural center dedicated to this culinary experience. The design doesn’t become an object within the country side, but emerges out of the hillside as a natural moment. Check it out after the jump!
Today we are taking a look at Architizer A+ awards, which is looking to try something new and trying to shake up the architectural world. “Film has the Oscars, the internet has the Webbys, advertising has the Clios. Don’t wait until you win a Pritzker to have your work celebrated by an award that matters.” Check it out and maybe your work might be good enough to get recognized.
Today we thought we change it up at F+ and take a look at this year’s winners from City Vision competition to re-envision NYC. The composition of the first prize project is flat out amazing and artistic. We highly suggest you take a look at the projects at their full extent at the site along with the honorable mentions. Check it out after the jump!
We’re pretty nerdy here at F+, so when we saw the call for entries for this competition, we couldn’t wait to see the results. The project calls for a moon base for the Rebel alliance depicted in the Star Wars movies (the original 3, we’ll ignore the prequels for now). Check out Sebastiano’s winning entry.
