This week, we're sharing projects from China to Michigan, Iceland, and Washington, D.C., 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.

Tukwila Fire Station 52, Tukwila, Wash.
Weinstein AU Architects + Urban Designers

"The building form consists of a two-story brick mass broken by slots that provide relief and variety across the façade, in addition to vision glazing in strategic locations. The public entry is further articulated by a two-story glazed slot with inset doors, while the apparatus garage is showcased with recessed, full-height storefront glazing and iconic red doors."

"Carving the exterior terraces out of the west-facing façade created additional shading while providing valuable outdoor space and opportunities for bioretention planters. Operable windows on all glazed facades increase natural ventilation while providing a sensory connection to the vibrant surroundings of Fremont."

"Large, general purpose classrooms are consolidated in a single, universal third-floor space, preventing siloes, promoting synergies and encouraging cross-disciplinary study."

Trousdale, Beverly Hills, Calif.
Whipple Russell Architects

"At the back of the house, two walls of glass give the living space panoramic views across the pool and patio to the slopes and greenery of Beverly Hills. These window walls glide open for a stroll to the pool and patio entertaining spaces."

Shirble The Prime, Shenzhen, China

"The design layout considers the land conditions and the surrounding transportation network, and builds an internal circular traffic flow line around the bus station to serve various functional formats."

The Meyer: Museum of Contemporary Art, (concept proposal)
Alberti+Alberti Architecture

"The bay, the city, and the hills are combined with a park setting to create a vital, rich, and pleasant atmosphere for urban life. The building is a gesture towards the public realm and the diverse cultures it celebrates. A play between the curvilinear and the linear creates constant juxtapositions."

The Hovering Trails, Reykjavík, Iceland
Alternance - Architecture and Planning

"The Hovering Trails is an environmentally friendly footpath system that protects sensitive natural gems while facilitating access and safety for travelers. The uniqueness of the design lies in the possibility of installing the trails in difficult natural conditions without damaging the ground or disrupting natural water flow."

West Half, Washington, D.C.
ODA New York

"At West Half, ground-up, the cascading 10-story residential building is filled with unique apartment layouts that break the typical D.C. building mass into a more human scale that connects the indoor–outdoor [space], and increases the amount of light and air. ODA stacked the floors on an inward trajectory that allows for ample outdoor terraces on the façade, and a unique inner courtyard filled with cantilevered apartments."

Located in Sarasota, Fla., the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art grabs the eye with its unique window arrangement and colorful pavilion. "For the tiles on our pavilion, we worked with an excellent factory, Boston Valley Terra Cotta outside of Buffalo, N.Y., and the size of the tiles was determined by the fabrication process," explained Machado and Silvetti principal Rodolfo Machado, Intl. Assoc. AIA, in a 2016 interview with ARCHITECT. "There are three sizes—small ones, little bit larger ones, and then the corners—which are different. The tiles’ geometry makes the building contemporary but also seductive and soft." The Boston-based firm also recently rehabbed the Denver Art Museum, designed by the Italian architect Gio Ponti in 1971. You can read more about the renovation and expansion, completed alongside the Denver-based Fentress Architects, here.
