50 of the Best Facade Construction Details

    <figure>
Facade detail Brick House Facade detail Brick House The facade is the calling card of an architecture project, an often iconic and recognizable element that becomes part of the collective imaginary. We frequently see them featured in photographs and art—such as Andreas Gursky's work, or as part of movie sets. It is almost impossible to forget the pink symmetrical façade of 'The Budapest Hotel' by director Wes Anderson, or even, in music videos or album covers, like the legendary 'Physical Grafitti' by Led Zeppelin. One of the complexities of satisfactorily representing a facade detail is the point of view.  What is the best view/frame for a facade detail? Is it in section, axonometric, or plan view? We've selected 50 facade details with the aim of showing different ways of approaching this type of representation, highlighting aspects such as materiality, joints, interior comfort and color (among other properties that are part of the

Why is CDMX the 2018 World Design Capital?

    <figure>
Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez At first sight, when approaching CDMX from the sky, is overwhelming. A sea of buildings indicates an arrival to the fifth most populated capital in the world. The size of the city, makes it difficult to recognize its limits, so it is inevitable to use urban and suburban landmarks such as the Zócalo square (downtown), Tamayo Museum in Chapultepec Park (West), University City, the Frida Kahlo Museum (Coyoacán), and Ciudad Satélite (north exit), to orient yourself.

Located in a strategic geographical position within the traditional routes of design, the city benefits from the connections and close interactions with North America and Europe. Fortunately, these external tendencies are refined within the "local" filter; the vast history and tradition of indigenous Mexican cultures permeate foreign influences making them unique creations, with a marked interest in native materials and working techniques.

Who Cares About Restoring Heritage in Mérida, Mexico?

    <figure>
Courtesy of Danae Santibáñez Courtesy of Danae Santibáñez In his book The Right to the City (1968), Henri Lefebvre talks about ending the creation of spaces managed by the logic of profit, to launch a plan of "self-managed territory" that does not leave aside the "historical heritage," nor allow the decomposition of space, but instead works for the restitution of urban centers as places of creation.

Globalization has produced cities without limits whose focus has been on the immediate benefit, directly attacking the preservation of cultural heritage, among other things. Caring for heritage and bringing it closer to the citizens not only contributes to the construction of a local identity, but also influences constructive and material innovation, as well as improves the quality of life of nearby inhabitants through respect and understanding of past cultures by generating diverse and unique cities.

The chemistry of Kahlo blue

Before the monochromatic works of Yves Klein, who created the International Klein Blue (IKB), Frida's 'Kahlo Blue' already existed in Mexico City's core.

Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez

The Frida Kahlo Museum, better known as “Casa Azul” (Blue House), is located in the center of Mexico City's Coyoacán district. The house was acquired by the Kahlo’s in 1905 when the then white structure was an example of constructive colonial typology: a central courtyard surrounded by rooms that limit in continuous facade with the street.

Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez

Fortunately, the composition of that building underwent changes. Frida would use her childhood home, after getting married, as a residence and art studio, making modifications and expansions to the original project. Of the changes, in my opinion, the most important and work of art in itself was to paint the house an intense blue.

What is Plantscaping?

    <figure>
Collage. Image Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez Collage. Image Cortesía de Danae Santibáñez Interior gardens and plants produce many day-to-day benefits, like mood boosting and memory enhancing effects. Interior landscape design, also known as "plantscaping", is much more than the act of bringing plants indoors; it's actually about the strategic placement and selection of plant species within an architectural project to highlight and enhance aspects of spatial design. 

Cortesía de DIVOOE ZEIN Architects Cortesía de DIVOOE ZEIN Architects

Depending on the plant's structure and form, different spatial phenomena and effects can be generated.

For example, tall plants can be used in large spaces to produce focal hierarchies, or groups of plants can create areas for chilling out and/or resting. And, of course, vegetation can help control the thermal and acoustic performance of spaces.

From the architect. The lot shape is a basic rectangle and we adjusted the project to its size to get the most benefit from the space. On the facade 2 planes are clearly appreciated as part of the same volume. We decided to use stone as the main material to add strength and enhance the personality of the project. The second plane was softened with vegetation to mark the difference between both and define a gesture of the presence of nature throughout the design.

For the hallway that leads to the main entrance we selected stone for the floor and the left wall creating a very special dynamic due to the characteristics and porosity of

The Beauty of Everyday Life: Ward Robert’s Courts

    <figure>
Courts 01. Image © Ward Roberts Courts 01. Image © Ward Roberts Showing nobility in everyday places requires a sense that goes far beyond first impressions. New York-based photographer Ward Roberts offers a fresh and engaging perspective in his photographs - documenting sports courts of all kinds around Hong Kong, Bermuda, Hawaii, and New York (to name a few). Roberts' work beautifully captures the innate tension between the familiar and the foreign that sports courts evoke: bringing a sense of place, in any place.

The influence of urban space Every city plan considers space for sports architecture - from large stadiums up to neighborhood courts sports spaces are those that any inhabitant can quickly connect with. Roberts' 'Courts Project' is inspired by the artist's own personal history. His Hong Kong based childhood featured his love of sports as being aesthetically influenced with their striking color palettes and as typological elements in architecture.

From the architect. An under-used rooftop with a privileged location, in front of the Plaza de la República and the Monumento a la Revolución in Mexico City, sparked a strategic collaboration between the brand Timberland and the real estate developer Reman Holdings. Building a rooftop terrace reconciled the interests of both parts in having a venue for events and making the most of such a powerful space, to be part of the facilities of HomeWork. A-001 Taller de Arquitectura led from the beginning the coordination, project management, architectural proposition and building process.

From the architect. In Mexico City, the growing demand for housing in certain areas, as well as the increase in density, has motivated the population to find ways of making the most out of their rooftops.

In this case, the client was looking to expand a small extra room to be used as a full studio with an independent access.

One of the walls was partially demolished in order to add a second volume which would house the kitchenette, storage space, and a sofa-bed. The two volumes are connected by a metal roof which extends out to the edges of the house to create a covered patio.
