AIANY Center for Architecture  Free & open to the public. Cultural venue for NYC architecture, design & urbanism. Sister org to AIANY, the oldest & largest chapter of @AIAnational.

#fbf to this house by Christoff:Finio Architecture in Shelter Island, NY. The project won an Architecture Merit in the 2019 AIANY Design Awards. The architects sought to make a small house feel big when presented with a generous site bordered by undisturbed woods. The resulting structure supports the activities of a young family while fostering a feeling of connection with the surrounding environment.

The Ethical Cultural Fieldston School (@ecfs1878) in the Riverdale section of the Bronx has recently opened its newly renovated Tate Library, designed by @architecture.research.office (ARO). Long considered a signature feature of the school’s campus, the library, originally designed by Murphy & Mackey Architects in the 1970s, now has a spacious, open layout capable of providing greater access to books, information, and technology.

Tel Aviv’s Azrieli Center is gaining a new tower, which will be the tallest in the city. The 91-floor tower will have as much space as the center’s other three towers combined. Designed by @kohnpedersenfox, the new 1.56-million-square-foot building is an elongated circle in plan and takes the form of a spiraling scroll. At the ground level, the outer layer of this spiral wraps around the existing retail base. The façade then wraps around the shaft of the new tower, narrowing as it ascends to create optimal office floor plates. Still higher, increasingly smaller floor plates accommodate residential and hotel functions. At its pinnacle, the tower will feature a public space for gathering and entertainment. The firm is collaborating with Tel-Aviv-based Moshe Tzur Architects & Town Planners.

Construction has been completed on the Tianjin Binhai Exploratorium, a 355,200-square-foot museum in Tianjin, China. Designed by Bernard Tschumi Architects, the Exploratorium is set to open in Fall 2019 and will showcase artifacts from Tianjin’s industrial past. A series of large-scale cones form major rooms throughout the museum to showcase contemporary technology. The central cone, lit from above, connects all three levels of the Exploratorium. The cones provide even, natural light to gallery spaces and reduce the energy loads required for artificial lighting. Their tapered forms also concentrate warm air, which can then be channeled out of the building in summer or back into the galleries in winter. The project was designed in collaboration with Tianjin Urban Planning and Design Institute (TUPDI). The Binhai Cultural Center master plan was prepared by Hamburg-based GMP Architekten.

Take a tour of The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation, recently renovated by @RyallSheridanArchitects. The LES building went through many iterations, including life as tenement housing, a synagogue, a church, and a warehouse before Resnick took it over as a residence and artist’s studio.

#tbt to London's Floral Court by @KohnPedersenFox Associates, which won an Architecture Honor Award in this year's AIANY Design Awards! An unremarkable 1980’s office block has been replaced with a new building informed by the brick architecture of the warehouse district originally affiliated with Covent Garden market. The Carriage Hall, a former industrial building and preserved landmark, has been transformed into small department store through restoration of the enclosure and the insertion of a new sky-lit atrium with a minimally detailed four-bay roof light assembled with insulated glass units of the largest size possible to manufacture in Europe.

Four the past 11 years, @tsqarts has hosted the Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition where artists and design firms compete to have their piece displayed in Times Square for the month of February. This year’s winning design, "X", was created by @reddymadedesign and is made of two intersecting aluminum planes with openings that combine to form a heart shape when viewed from different angles. The 18-foot-tall structure is the largest and tallest winning design ever selected! Built by @bednarkstudio with lighting design by @revealdesigngrp and interactivity by @bkresearch.
