Faber Park

45 Faber Park. The clients for this Project are a couple with three young children, – a set of twins and a younger child, all under 10. Their main aim was to maximise outdoor space whilst not compromising living areas. It was therefore essential that there would be sufficient space for the children to play outdoors as well as indoors. The priority of creating an open living space with a direct relationship to a large outdoor space became a driving force in the scheme.

Shanghai Expo

Hundreds of thousands of daily visitors, about 200 buildings, $4.2 billion spent: Shanghai’s lavish world expo, which opened on May 1 and runs through the end of October, is a chance for China’s largest city to announce itself as a cultural and economic powerhouse. It’s also a stage where the nations of the world can show off—to visitors and each other—through architecture. Fred A. Bernstein tours the Expo, surveys its architectural hits and misses, and even gets inside the much-maligned U.S. pavilion.

Benning Library

Benning Library is located on a sloped site along Benning Road, N.E. The building is terraced into the terrain allowing access from both Benning Road at the upper level and from a commercial shopping area at the lower level. The two floors of the facility are connected by a public stair inside the building, creating a space which encourages pedestrian circulation through the library in order to connect one street elevation to another. Benning Library utilizes a warm color palette of earth tones and a copper panel facade to complement its residential setting.
