The construction of the new multimedia library of Montauban is spearheading an urban renewal project in the eastern quarters of the city. It must mark the entrance to the city, providing an identity to these neglected neighborhoods while still representing the city of Montauban. In parallel it is a project of reinvention: in these times of the digitalization of knowledge, the challenges of such a design are of spatialization and of materialization of the information and its division. This is the “third...

A critique of a society driven by beauty rather than worth.

Let me take you on a trip to France, the location of this gorgeous house! We go to Lourmarin to be exact. It is located in the heart of the Luberon which is a lovely area to visit, with lots of charming shops and restaurants. I love how this home has been renovated and decorated in a modern style, combined with traditional elements. The owners have restored this old house in a spirit of simplicity, paying particular attention to the notions of space, calm and light and using only pure natural materials such as stone, lime, concrete, wood and linen.
The house can be rented, you can find more information on this website.

About five days a week I walk on John Street past the Privately Owned Public Space (POPS) at 33 Maiden Lane in Lower Manhattan, never venturing inside. The "two-level open-air covered pedestrian space," as Jerold Kayden calls it, is frankly an oddity, a fairly large space that is always dark and empty. Further, its dramatic barrel vault does not extend to John Street; instead a small rectangular portal gives a glimpse and access to both the pedestrian space and subway below.
[All photographs by John Hill, unless noted otherwise.]
But where else do the stairs and escalators beyond lead, besides the subway? And what's with the postmodern design? On Friday I decided to trek through the POPS and do a little research on it to finally get the story behind this oddity.
Before heading into the space, lets walk around to the Maiden Lane side from the above views from John Street on the north. Below are two portals that provide access from Nassau Street on the west. The large column, rounded brick piers, and arched openings all fit into the theme of the building's design.
Those three elements can also be found on the Maiden Lane side (below), which faces the Federal Reserve Bank. Actually, the 1924 building is the driving force for Philip Johnson and John Burgee's design of 33 Maiden Lane (aka 2 Federal Reserve Plaza), completed 60 years later. That inspiration can be seen in the arches, barrel vaults, rounded corners, and brick color, as well as the turrets that top the tower's corners...

Mexico-based studio Parque Humano has designed the Casa en el Bosque (House in the Woods) project. The site is a splendid plot covering 3,500 m2 with rich and varied flora, very tall trees, and a view towards the layered hills of Valle de Bravo – a town 150 km south-west of Mexico City. The house occupies a natural ledge in the hillside, facing the view to the south and turning its back to the winds coming in from the north. The ground drops away beneath the floor, emphasizing the slope of the land and thereby dramatizing the house’s progress through the site. The house evokes the feeling of floating above the garden, accentuating a sense of contact with nature.

São Paulo-based studio SPBR Arquitetos has designed this gorgeous concrete residence in Ubatuba, one of the most important coastal cities in the state of São Paulo in Brazil. The 3,660 square-foot home sits on a 180? x 52? lot. The design process started in 2004 and the house was completed in 2009. Three columns, made in reinforced concrete, support the house. The casting of these columns is possible by the use of sliding forms. Four beams lay on the top of them in order to hang the slabs from above and also to avoid the use of support frames during the construction process, making it faster and more rational.
