Designing Legends | Vasily Klyukin | Via

In an era of skyscraper frenzy, where the world’s metropoles compete for the record of the tallest tower (with buildings as high as 1000 meters being reportedly under construction), a young businessman from Russia has envisioned a different kind of architectural landmark. 37-year-old Vasily Klyukin, founder of the successful Sovcombank and manager of the real estate fund K2H, has been working for the past year on a conceptual architecture project that means to give a legendary status to the skyscrapers and other iconic buildings we erect in our cities.

Ainda não fui à nova Douro Marina, desde a sua conclusão, no entanto, depois de ver estas imagens, captadas pelo fotógrafo José Campos, fiquei com vontade de passar por lá para conhecer melhor este projeto e usufruir da lindíssima vista que este local tem sobre o rio Douro.

Vejam mais imagens aqui, ou comprem a próxima edição da Wallpaper, onde o projeto do atelier Barbosa & Guimarães, será publicado na integra. Enjoy!

Hercules Towers by Rafael de La-Hoz

The façade consists of the mythical motto from the legend of the Pillars of Hercules, “Non Plus Ultra” (nothing further beyond), warning sailors of the edge of the known world.

Ga On Jai, Seongnam, South Korea by IROJE KHM Architects | via

About 20 years ago, government held “the house expo” in GangNam and constructed this “expo town” of low-rise residences, and every site of this town were designed by selected architects who had been famous in Korea at that time. The site of “GaOnJai” was one of this monumental town, but the owner of this house who purchased house of this site, has built, newly, after tearing down the old house of this site.

Useful landuse, ecology: To maximize the efficiency of landuse, to be ecological spaces were important requirements, because the owner thought exterior spaces of demolished old house were narrow, useless and circumstance of inner spaces were dark and blue.

Introvert space: To keep privacy and security, to block noise, smoke and other’s eye, introverted layout of this house was required.
Absorbing landscape of surrounding mountain: The living room where has dynamic, picturesque view of landscape of near mountain had been required.

The house which has it’s own Identity of Korean culture has been required because I think this town is representative town of desirable planned residences in Korea.
