Visitors first encounter a reception area whose most striking feature is a reclaimed wood timber screen. More than just a focal point, it is subtly aligned to preserve a sense of privacy between reception and the open studio area behind. (text by M Moser Associates)

In spite of being a three-storied house, inhabitants can walk on the gentle slope almost like a flat house. Wooden rooms are surrounded by the spiral slope and exterior walls which are made of reinforced concrete. (text by bandesign)

Santiago Calatrava’s World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York City is the world’s most expensive station, at a total cost of $4 billion. Shops will open later this year around the transit hall and concourses

There has been a dramatic shift in the demands placed by public transportation on contemporary architecture since the turn of the millennium – the need to square the burgeoning of passenger numbers that attends the unstoppable march of urbanisation with a desire to deliver landmark projects, full of rhetoric and aspiration. Let’s take a trip. (by Alyn Griffiths)

The work of London-based design practice Doshi Levien celebrate a hybrid of different worlds, bringing together cultural diversity and showing the interplay between industrial design and traditional craftsmanship. Curious as ever to know about designers’ material choices, Architonic recently met up with Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien in Stockholm, where they presented ‘Material Interventions’ – a visual campaign for the new collection by Swedish flooring brand Bolon.

The Transportation Architecture Issue

The Transportation Architecture Issue

If it’s not the destination that counts but the getting there, then transportation architecture and infrastructure represent the high altar of creative and planning endeavour. Transport projects have to function both on a utilitarian level as spaces that process (as it were) their users efficiently and safely, and on a rhetorical one – they seek to communicate the pride and aspiration of their geographical context. Think the first impressions you get when stepping off a train in a foreign city.

 

View all of this against the backdrop of the seemingly unstoppable phenomenon of urbanisation globally and you’ll see why architects are increasingly viewing these kinds of projects as the last word in prestige. So, in this edition of our new-look Architonic Newsletter, we survey a number of noteworthy and recently completed rail and metro projects internationally. Tickets, please.
