We bring you five projects that take the façade into extra special consideration. Whether it's a new building or a renovation to an existing one, it's what's on the outside that counts.
NEW YORK CITY – Sparkly and shiny domestic properties are very nice for living in but often don't make the most interesting of subjects to critique.
EVANSTON – The sheer number of students on any given university campus can be quite daunting and it is not difficult to walk past hundreds of people each day.
NEW YORK CITY – Governors Island has been derelict for decades. After a substantial redesign by landscape designer Adriaan Geuze, the archipelago is worth a visit.
COLORADO – Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to invite you to the greatest force that has ever existed, the US Air Force.
LOS ANGELES – In a fruitful collaboration, students from the architecture school SCI-Arc use their skills to help a local charity build innovative housing for a small price.
CAMBRIDGE – Architects are usually either concerned with creating structures that will prevent the impact of natural forces, or with the reconstruction when these structures fail.
BUFFALO – A studio with distinct materialities and atmospheres responds to the clients' wish to share one building but maintain separate work environments.
CORNING – Thomas Phifer and Partners restore the modernist museum building of the Corning Museum of Glass and attach an addition which exudes the potential of glass.
LOS ANGELES – A museum that celebrates the history of cars is redesigned by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates to have a dynamic exterior in Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES – An urban housing development that promotes a sense of community, nature and design for budding families.
CHARLESTON – In a city where modern architecture is rarely present, Sky Residence is making a bold statement while blending in with the historic surroundings.
