olson kundig architects in california

Seattle-based studio Olson Kundig Architects takes to Truckee, California to site its Analog House — completed in 2019 in collaboration with the client, local architecture practice Faulkner Architects. The house is designed as a celebration of its ‘rugged, high desert site populated by ponderosa pine, manzanita and exposed basalt.’

The complex footprint of the dwelling is informed by the preserved specimen trees, around which it is woven. The architecture surrounds a cluster of trees to create protected internal courtyard, which — together with full-height and clerestory windows — invites the forested site into the living spaces. ‘This house has been shaped both functionally and poetically by the mature ponderosa pines trees that occupy the site,’ notes design principal Tom Kundig,In the same way that you would weave through the trees on a forest walk, this home changes direction to respect and

Architecture and Landscape: 10 Projects Integrated in the Topography

Architecture and Landscape: 10 Projects Integrated in the Topography

As a starting point for architectural projects, the terrain and its topography point out the directions that the distribution of the program can follow. Among them, one solution stands out for the continuity between topography and architecture: lowering the level of construction and advancing the land over the roof. From this roof garden created with the same characteristics as the surroundings, the result gives the impression of an almost non-existent intervention.

The incorporation of the land as an architectural element takes up, in a certain way, the concept of caves, reinforcing an idea of ​​shelter and reception from a hybrid between the initial and natural configuration and the architectural intervention.

Visions for future neighborhoods from Oslo Architecture Triennale

This year’s Oslo Architecture Triennale presents strategies for building better urban neighborhoods. From rewilding to co-living, Dezeen editor-at-large Amy Frearson picks five of the most interesting ideas.

The eighth Oslo Architecture Triennalewhich has the theme Mission Neighborhood, sees the former Munch Museum in Tøyen temporarily transformed into the Oslo Neighborhood Lab.

The venue is hosting exhibitions, conversations and workshops that explore how architects, designers and city stakeholders can help to create “more sustainable, diverse and generous” neighborhoods.
