Big Shed – The AA Summer Build

Today we are following up on a post from a couple months back about Hooke Park Big Shed by the AA.  We have been following the construction of the pavilion and wanted to share it again.  As it is the largest and most intricate pavilion construction we have seen between student and professionals.  The space is truly taking form, so check it out after the jump!

Armadillo Crèche – Andrew Fu

It is always rare for a young student to become the lead designer and to have the opportunity actually have their design constructed.  Andrew Fu won a competition, among 60 students, to have his design for an early childhood learning center in Cosmo City built.  The building itself is bare-bones, yet at the same time extremely elegant with its touches of playfulness and use of bringing light into the classrooms.  Check it out after the jump!
