The Public Forum of the small coastal town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto represents a community that embraces the ancestral Mayan knowledge of building with natural materials in relation to their environment.

There is a long-established tradition of wine-making on the island of Cyprus. This goes back more than 5000 years, from when the first settlements appeared on the island.  A great deal has changed in the meantime but, the wine remains a significant constant. One of the latest additions to the list is the set upon a promontory, above the remote mountain village of Kalopanayiotis.  The Lampadistis winery is a deliberately heavy object that has come to perch on the exposed site. Designed by the office of Eraclis Papachristou Architects, it is a thing once simple, ceremonial, and weighty.

Idea Factory, is a transformation of a former factory building in the Shenzhen urban village of Nantou that sustainably reuses and improves the building instead of demolishing and rebuilding it. The project contains a mixture of offices for the Urban Research Institute of China Vanke and offices for rent – yet despite this program, its distinguishing features are public in nature: a stairway cuts its way through the six-story building, leading to a rooftop with a series of “rooms” enclosed by living bamboo “walls”, offering a variety of amenities and activities.

November 29, 2022 Collin Chen 0

Song County’s three-in-one construction project is located in the new city across the Yi River.

However, it is the first comprehensive cultural facility in Song County that preserves and exhibits historical memory and future vision.
