This week, we're sharing projects from India to Tokyo, Arizona, and India, with several stops in between. In addition to the projects that we cover in detail, we highlight work that architecture firms share with us every day through Project Gallery, the user-generated portion of ARCHITECT's website. To date, we have nearly 16,000 projects.
"The towers’ unique cloverleaf plans and varying tiers are a decisive response to the singular challenge of creating multiple residential towers on a dense site. Rising to 280 meters [920 feet], World One is the tallest building in India."
"The improvements include transparency and visibility to both the community and student with entry plazas, outdoor gardens, classroom, and display areas, student commons and breakout spaces, flexible labs and classrooms, tech-enriched environment with added daylight and views."
"Inspired by the traditional Japanese architecture’s flexibility, the new Cybernet office is a modern space designed to promote employees’ well-being, encourage dialogue, and improve productivity."
"All the Club’s buildings and structures have a prefabricated metal framework with wall and roof panels mainly used for industrial purposes. The combination of industrial materials and rough timber has become an amusing precedent."
"The 2.9-acre site had several innate qualities—such as its location at the end of a cul-de-sac and its long driveway approach—that allowed the team to create what architect Greg Warner refers to as 'an illusion of isolation.'"
"This internalized landscape steps up to create terraced seating and will serve as the town hall—hosting staff meetings, large member gatherings, community dinners, job fairs, and a wide range of activities supporting the organization’s mission."
"The polished precast concrete slabs and columns of the exterior follow a tectonic grid composition lending the building a classical appearance and firmly asserting its place within the streetscape."
"The building is organized around the core experiences at the center of the JCC’s mission: the Jewish Learning Center; fitness and aquatics; and social programming, such as a theater and cafe."
In 2019, Baltimore-headquartered Ayers Saint Gross completed its renovation of Arizona State University's Hayden Library, transforming the space from a "warehouse of books into a place for people," according to a project description. The renovation reintegrates the building into the Arizona State campus with physical and visual design techniques, all while maintaining a commitment to sustainable building technologies that make use of the library's existing structure. The library, which won an AIA 2021 COTE Top Ten Award, was also recognized in the AIA/ALA 2021 Library Building Awards.
