Sky Garden #House / Guz Architects, Sentosa Island, #Singapore (o) The plots are not large and neighbouring #buildings are built close to the sides of each #house. Thus our strategy was to build a solid wall to each side neighbor to provide privacy where possible, while creating a central light and stair well which would funnel the sea breeze through the centre of the building. The front and rear of the building meanwhile, terrace back allowing each story to have visual or actual access to greenery. The intention was to try to allow each roof garden provided a base for the story above allowing the layered effect to make each story feel like it was a single storey dwelling sitting in a much as we could do in the close confines of Sentosa island and with such a large building!!

Farm house located in Keldur, Iceland (o Earth sheltering is the architectural practice of using earth against building walls for external thermal mass, to reduce heat loss, and to easily maintain a steady indoor air temperature. Earth sheltering is popular in modern times among advocates of passive solar and sustainable architecture, but has been around for nearly as long as humans have been constructing their own shelter.

Infinity Bridge, Stockton-on-Tees, UK (o)

Ponte della Pace, by Michele De Lucchi - Tbilisi, Georgia A bridge is a symbolic architecture, a cohesion of opposite points: in this case between different, separate social circumstances and territorial conformations which celebrate their union. This bridge crosses the river Mtkvari in Tbilisi, connecting the older district of Bericoni to that of Rikhe, which has been the subject of a recent development plan on an international scale. The roof seems a single membrane created by a framework of steel tubes and triangular glass units. Its shell structure is a recognisable icon of the city. The cross arches are all generated by the same parabola, inspired by standardisation and scale economy. The longitudinal profile on the other hand, which identifies the bridge, is also the result of the most effectively balanced forces. Created at the centre of the bridge is a “piazza”, an ideal social and cultural meetingplace, from which the population and tourists can enjoy splendid views of Tbilisi. Thus from the Presidential Palace, the Cathedral or the suburbs extending along the valley, the bridge stands out as a landmark for the whole city.(o)
