This week, we have projects in places ranging from Kuala Lumpur to Coconut Grove, Minneapolis to Atlanta, and more, all contributed by some great architecture firms for your perusal and pleasure. You see, in addition to the projects we choose to give more detailed coverage, we also like to showcase the projects that architecture firms share with us and you directly each and every day. The Project Gallery is a user-generated portion of our site where firms upload their latest projects for you to enjoy. So far, we have well above 14,000 projects, making it a wealth of great design information.
In this space, each week, we'll try to give thanks to the firms who share their work with us, by sharing a handful of the coolest new projects to join the gallery with you.
Saloma Link, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, by VERITAS
This new pedestrian bridge "helps to connect the two prominent destinations which have been separated by the Klang river and the six‐lane Ampang Kuala Lumpur Elevated highway (AKLEH), between the old and new parts of Kuala Lumpur."
BASS, in Coconut Grove, Fla., by [STRANG]
"The exposure to hurricane storm surges required that the home be raised substantially above the existing grade. This results in an impressive architectural composition where the frame acts as a third-level volume that protrudes beyond the level below."
W Atlanta Midtown, in Atlanta, by Virserius Studio
"Arthur is a native Atlantan who was born and raised in Ainsley Park, located right behind W Atlanta Midtown. Virserius Studio’s concept of the hotel is the recreation of Arthur’s estate and secret garden, decorated with his diverse collection of art and other items obtained during his extensive world travels."
Brooks Family YMCA, in Charlottesville, Va., by VMDO Architects
"Prioritizing the community-based principles of the YMCA, the design provides natural overlaps where members may share experiences, make new friends, and develop a sense of belonging."
Rafter Apartments, in Minneapolis, by Studio BV
For this 283-unit luxury apartment tower in the northeast part of the city, the architects "worked with many different artists to create custom artwork and furniture pieces for the common spaces of the complex. ... Plywood walls, overhead garage doors, and utilitarian workshop furniture are balanced out with soft seating and colorful artwork."
Tesuque Studio, in Tesuque, N.M., by CO-G
This building "utilizes a conventional concrete tilt-up technique to form a five-sided massing" with cutaways that "align to a roof of three cylindrical slopes." It is one of the projects featured from Boston-based CO-G, the architecture firm featured this month in our Next Progressives series.
Mennello Museum of American Art, in Orlando, Fla., by Brooks + Scarpa
