Abrantes Municipal Market by ARX Portugal.

[Abrantes] Portugal.
metalocus, DANIEL MADERA.
ARX Portugal has taken charge of designing this market for Abrantes's municipality. A market that moves away from the traditional typology of this type of buildings, searching to be an opened and luminous building, while the project takes advantage of the principal idea of the street markets, which take the public space of the street, connecting two streets placed on different level.

Abrantes's municipality will have a new municipal market. The building has been designed by ARX Portugal and we are sure that you will be very glad with the project.

metalocus, SILVIA BATRES.
New York is a city that always surprises its visitors, that never ceases to surprise even its citizens. The kaleidoscopic city and for a long time chameleonic, has been portrayed by Jeffrey Milstein from a helicopter. Bird-eye views showing different points of the city from a surprising angle. A vision that has been shared with the city of Los Angeles and large machines, such as cruise ships and planes. Photographer Jeffrey Milstein captures cities using high-resolution camera equipment from the open door of a helicopter. He has released these photographs of the Big Apple as part of a his LANY exhibition, featuring images of New York and Los Angeles.

In Benrubi Gallery, Milstein, long known for his images of planes in flight photographed from directly below, reverses the perspective in the current images, offering views of New York and Los Angeles taken from an altitude of 1,000 - 2,000 feet. The distance is far enough that the geometry of the urban streetscape, invisible from the...

New ICD/ITKE Research Pavillion 2014-15

[VÍDEO]. [Keplerstr] Stuttgart.
metalocus, CELIA RODRÍGUEZ, DANIEL MADERA.
The Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) continue their series of research pavilions with the new ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2014-15 at the University of Stuttgart. These building prototypes explore application potentials of novel computational design, simulation and fabrication processes in architecture. This prototypical project is the result of one and a half years of development by researchers and students of architecture, engineering and natural sciences.

The ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2014-15 demonstrates the architectural potential of a novel building method inspired by the underwater nest construction of the water spider. The resulting lightweight fiber composite shell forms a pavilion with unique architectural qualities, while at the same time being a highly material-efficient...

Infrastructure built with crowd-funded. The Luchtsingel by ZUS.

[Rotterdam] The Netherlands.
metalocus, CELIA RODRÍGUEZ
The initiative "I make Rotterdam" is a new way to create urban cities in a post-crisis economy. This project already completed, is a contemporary alternative for large-scale urban planning since traditional strategies that have been carried out for urban development have not worked during these years.

The first infrastructure that works with the system of crowd-funded is already completed. The Luchtsingel, designed by ZUS, manages to connect three zones of the center of Rotterdam with abandoned office blocks, returning to the area the previous dynamism and providing it with green spaces and new activities sites.
