The 2016 jury said that Aravena had “meaningfully expanded the role of the architect” through his social housing work and “is leading a new generation of architects that has a holistic understanding of the built environment and has clearly demonstrated the ability to connect social responsibility, economic demands, design of human habitat and the city,” said the citation. “[He] epitomises the revival of a more socially engaged architect.”

Gargoyle-covered skyscraper for New York is proposed by Mark Foster Gage http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/architecture/gargoyle-covered-skyscraper-new-york-proposed-mark-foster-gage/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/architecture/gargoyle-covered-skyscraper-new-york-proposed-mark-foster-gage/#comments Mon, 14 Dec 2015 18:43:23 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=3102 New York architect Mark Foster Gage has proposed a 102-storey tower covered in Gothic sculptural elements for Manhattan, in response to the city’s supertall skyscrapers that are “virtually free of architectural design” (+ movie).

The highly decorative residential building for West 57th Street was redisgend by Foster Gage as an alternative to the more conventional skyscrapers currently springing up in Midtown.

“I think that many of the supertall buildings being built in New York City are virtually free of architectural design – they are just tall boxes covered in selected glass curtain wall products,” said Foster Gage, who serves as assistant dean at the Yale School of Architecture.

“That is not design,” he added. “Design is thinking of a great many things like how a building appears from different distances, or in this case, how to make each floor unique to the owner.”

“How to make it more than just floor-space in the sky but also something beautiful and hopefully more meaningful to them and the city.”

His proposal features four enormous cantilevered balconies, supported by concrete carved wings that extend outwards from the structure’s exterior.

Intricate details cover the tower: limestone-tinted concrete sculptures resemble the fronts of cars and propellers, while others serve as unconventional gargoyles.

The building is also decorated with symmetrical geometric shapes, placed on all four sides. Foster Gage has suggested robotic CNC technology could be used to create the carvings.

Bronze and brass decorative details extend up the tower, and have been used to create cog-shaped elements at the base and curved sections that echo the forms of the wings further up the building.

At the top of the tower, a viewing platform is framed by sculptural metal details, including what appear to be the faces of pig-like creatures at each corner.

“Our primary interest wasn’t symbolism as might have been the case with such sculptural forms a century ago,” said the architect.

“Instead we were interested in having high and low resolution areas on the facade, so the building revealed different qualities from different viewing distances – including from the interior,” he added.

The architect explain that visitors will also be able to visit a restaurant that would offer “an awe-inspiring event and dining experience unique to the city of New York”.

According to the architect, each of the apartments in the building will also have its own unique sculptural exterior, designed to “frame particular features of the surrounding urban and natural landscapes”.

Other proposed designs for new towers for the city include ODA’s residential tower with open-air terraces, and Dror Benshetrit’s trio of proposals for residential buildings on different sites of New York.

However some New Yorkers have spoken out against the rise in super-tall skinny skyscrapers, claiming they could overshadow Central Park.

Two New Nominees for RIBA House of the Year Award http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/architecture/new-nominees-riba-house-year-award/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/architecture/new-nominees-riba-house-year-award/#comments Mon, 23 Nov 2015 16:59:30 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=2899 RIBA of the house award is one of the UK’s highest honors in residential design and this year’s last few places in the shortlist of finalists are filling up faster than expected. Amongst the nominees are a generous and clever central London house and a beautifully proportioned countryside home in County Down.

1) Levring House

Levring House is the inspired work of London based architect Jamie Fobert. Occupying a typical mews house plot in Bloomsbury, this modern home is spacious and stylish, making the most of its site, materials and orientation.

Made of Danish hand made bricks, bronze panels and clear glazing, Levring House also includes a delightful 14m long marble lined lap pool in its basement, as well as ample space for work and play for the owners. A central light well at its heart helps natural light penetrate deep into all interiors.

2) Maghera’s House

The House at Maghera was designed by Belfast architecture practice McGonigle McGrath. The house, designed within an existing settlement, takes its cues from the area’s vernacular architecture and arrangement. It is composed of two forms, wedged together. Inside, large, open spaces offer ample living space. A clean decor and a neutral colour palette allows the nature, beautifully framed by carefully placed openings, to take centre stage, uniting inside and outside.

“We are delighted to be the winners of this year’s RIBA Jencks Award,” say the architects. “Despite the many texts and books we have published, we still have doubts about the longevity of texts written by architects,” they continue. “The title of a few books may be remembered over time – the relevance of their content, though, ages faster than expected… We therefore always did our best to not to separate theory from the built work. Buildings don’t follow theory but yes: the best buildings always allow for theoretical interpretations of all kinds.”

This park stands on the outskirts of the city, which is located at one end of the world’s longest artificial waterway, the Grand Canal.
