Description from the architect:
Modest houses on small lots comprise the Quillen's Point neighborhood, adjacent to the Chesapeake Bay in Ocean View, Delaware.  An eclectic mix of houses, gravel roads ending at the bay and wooded lots provide a nostalgic, informal setting for this new house.  The project site is near the end of Burbage Lane, the second lot from the bay with expectations that the adjacent waterfront lot will eventually be developed.

Experimental Cultures: Mergers of Art and Science

"All art should become science and all science art," declared the German Romantic poet Friedrich Schlegel in one of his many philosophical fragments. Schlegel's radical program of reform for the arts and sciences still has currency today. Art historians and other researchers are exploring the unique ways in which cultures of science and art intersect. Illustrations in anatomical atlases or manuals of natural history, for instance, hover somewhere ambivalently between the two. Even in the work of canonical artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci, what is art and what is scientific inquiry cannot be definitively distinguished. These junctions appear not only in the concerns of artists, but also in those of scientists. Developments in neuroscience are transforming our understanding of the experience and creation of art. Innovative technologies enable us to approach art and material culture, ancient and modern, from new angles. We invite proposals for papers across time and space that consider how science and technology have influenced the subjects of art, material culture, the practices of art-making, and aesthetic experience. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

Skyscrapers bridge PONTMARE, Valencia / by Luis de Garrido
[Google-translated from Spanish]
The city of Valencia is suffering an economic and cultural development very important in recent years, which is resulting in a recycling process model and growth of the city. Among many other projects, perhaps the most ambitious is finally connecting Valencia to the sea. The southern part of the river is beginning to consolidate, and instead, the north, take longer, since you have to remodel and recycling, an urban and consolidated.

Brussels Airport Connector 01 580x321

Digital Organic Connector proposal for Brussels Airport designed by UNStudio

The design for the Brussels Airport Connector Building focuses on providing a highly efficient, flexible infrastructural element that connects to and negotiates the existing airport architecture. The connector is part of the future ambition of the Brussels Airport to create a European hub in Brussels. The design approach ensures cohesive functioning of the three buildings, with the Connector Building establishing a seamless connection between the two contrasting identities of the terminal and Pier A, whilst simultaneously creating its own new identity.

YOUTH CENTRE IN LILLE, FRANCE / by JDS Architects
JDS Architects have just signed the contract to execute their first French project for the city of Lille. The Lille project emerges from the idea of creating an urban catalyst, accommodating three distinct programmes on a triangular site. By placing a program in each point of the triangle, we offer maximum privacy while allowing them a closeness and continuity of space, organized around a garden, like a cloister of calm in the center of the city. The lifting of the mass of the programme at the corners illuminates and activates the adjacent public spaces and creates a continuity from outside to inside of the building.
