Arquea Arquitetos - 1232 Building, Curitiba PR, Brazil

Established in Curitiba (capital of the Brazilian state of Paraná) in 2008, Arquea Arquitetos was founded by Bernardo Richter, Fernando Caldeira de Lacerda and Pedro Amin Tavares. These young architects, whose foundations lie on transcending client´s expectation, started their collaboration as students of the school of architecture.Located in Batel neighbourhood, the 1232 building occupies a long and irregular plot. By liberating the ground floor for parking, the two storey apartment building seems to float between both black continuous party walls. Besides the definition of this conceptual shape, the design is focused on defining the various skins that cover the corps.

Russli Architekten - EMMI-main office and apartment complex, Luzern, Switzerland

Collaborate with Swiss architects has been a challenging work, and a very rich learning process. You can imagine the several differences between Brazil and Switzerland, but you might be forgetting one of the most important for photography: the light. It was the case for today´s project, located in Luzern. The swiss milk company Emmi developed an urban complex, designed by Russli Architekten, which includes not only its headquarters but also three housing blocks. The new ensamble comprises an assortment of public spaces, where a long central plaza is highlighted.

Jacobsen Arquitetura - SM House in Taguaiba SP, Brazil

Today´s newsletter is devoted to one of our favourite subjects: the beach house. This is Jacobsen´s SM house, located in Taguaíba, São Paulo´s northeast shore. The main components of the house were fabricated on facility in São Paulo and then moved and assembled on site. The project faced a double condition: the house should be a shelter (protecting from the strong sun and frequent rain) and at the same time should motivate the relation with the outside. The apparent contradiction was solved, mainly with the design of the projected wooden ceiling and the continuous veranda.

Isay Weinfeld - Ling Institute, Porto Alegre RS, Brazil

The subject of today´s newsletter is the new building for the Instituto Ling. Located in Porto Alegre, in southern Brazil, the project is the result of a competition won by São Paulo-based architect Isay Weinfeld. The construction, an abstract concrete prism, occupies a corner on João Caetano street. The realisation of the building celebrates 20 years of continuous work in the field of education, culture and art. With the new construction the institute widens its original purpose by expanding their activities, creating an interesting cultural center.

happy new year!

As everyone knows, a new year is coming, and we say goodbye to 2015, a year full of challenges and satisfactions. During this hard year for Brazil, in terms of economy, we managed to expand our work, but keeping our high standard quality. When we look back stands out the work for the MoMA: the exhibition itself, the inclusion of 15 images to the museum´s collection and the photo profile on the catalogue. Besides we highlight the works related to Latin American Modern Architecture, like Identidade Latino-Americana exhibited in Brazil or Ecos del MoMA in Argentina.

Arquitetos Associados - Claudia Andujar Pavilion at Inhotim, Brumadinho MG, Brazil

The Claudia Andujar Pavilion, devoted to the work of the Brazilian photographer (she was born in Switzerland but has been living in Brazil from the 50s) is Inhotim´s 19th gallery and its second largest building. It was designed by Belo Horizonte based firm Arquitetos Associados, a familiar face from the art complex. The project, located on a slope among dense native vegetation, consists of a set of volumes, linked by a courtyard. The boxes, as decided together with the curator Rodrigo Moura, shelter the exhibition divided in four parts. The presence of the large building is soften, in a manner of speaking, by the treatment of the surfaces, clad on fluted bricks.
