The Gardens of Anfa. Green walls at Morocco.

[Casa Blanca] Morocco
metalocus, LUIS TERRAIN
Architecture, HOUSING
As if it were a tale of the Arabian Nights the French studio Maison Edouard François has designed a new neighborhood, with four tower blocks, for the city of Morocco, Casablanca. The design proposes flowering vines sprawling across the facades of these towers. Located in the Les Hopitaux district of the North African city, the Gardens of Anfa project comprises three mid-rise residential towers and a low-rise office tower, and The development encompasses a 50,000 square-metre site. Once complete, it will become a new mixed-use quarter that will also include a series of low-rise residential blocks connected by a central piazza and public spaces and underground car parking.

Scheduled for completion in 2016, each “organically-shaped” tower will be enhanced by a trellised facade that fosters the growth of jasmine and bougainvilleas (an ornamental vine native to South America), further camouflaging the structure and “demarcating the limits of a garden.”


The Shabolovka radio tower faces demolition.

[MOS] Russia
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
The Shabolovka radio tower in Moscow, designed by the engineer Vladimir Shukhov (1853-1939), and one of the great feats of 20th-century engineering, a landmark of constructivist architecture is facing demolition. Late last month, the Russian State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcasting agreed to the dismantling of the Shabolovka radio tower in Moscow.

The tower is a stunning example of the ambition and spectacle that marked this era of Soviet architecture. The building, a display of the desire for a cutting edge social movement, is fittingly located near the Moscow Kremlin. This Eiffel Tower of the new Russia, a 50-story hyperboloid in structure of steel mesh, was built under commissioned by Lenin and completed in 1922.

[I] Honorable Mentions. Exordium and Untitled.Gajic-Belicev.

metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
The stunning results of the first ever architecture storytelling competition hosted by BLANK SPACE ,have received a fantastic response from readers. For that reason, we offer the work of the rest of the selected entries. The competition marks the first contest organized by the New York City based “office for thought provocation.”

“We are glad that when asked to think differently about architecture, so many people were up for the challenge,” the founders say. “Blank Space started exactly for this purpose: to uncover better means to communicate architecture, and in turn, to change the way the world perceives architecture. The response is a testament to the power of these ideas.”



1st Prize. Europan 12, Warsaw. By Adrià Guardiet.

Competition, 1st Prize. Europan 12. [Za Żelazną Bramą, Warsaw] Poland.
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA.
This year the Spanish teams in Europan again demonstrated the high level of young Spanish architects. Among those who have won a first prize is Adrià Guardiet, whose work in the VORA team we have already published on other occasions. The project submitted for a site at Warsaw, Poland, is simple and great both in form and in its formal resolution and graphic presentation. Again congratulations!

the environment of the project, characterized by lack of definition of public space, low density and minimum functional diversity, brought us to a strategy of densification of the plot perimeter, introducing greater complexity of uses and wider range of characteristics and transitions of free space.
