Venice

Enduring Scarpa

During a recent trip to Italy, I finally visited Carlo Scarpa’s Brion Tomb. The quality of off form concrete achieved in this monument in the small country town of Altivole reminds us why Italians were dubbed as the best concrete craftsmen of the modern era.

Steph-Ross

Welcome Stephanie and Ross

Hanoi

Historic Hanoi

As development progresses at a rapid rate in Hanoi, the city’s heritage buildings are fighting demolition. The juxtaposition between old and new is not always successful, but in this example, the glass box neighbour to the heritage facade is complimentary.

Taktsang

The happiest place on earth

Have you been wondering why the news page of our website has not been updated in a while? Well, our Instagram feed has been keeping me busy along with a recent trip to mystical Bhutan. Takstang is Bhutan’s most famous temple and simply breathtaking (physically and spiritually). To see more photos of my amazing trip, please follow KOANDCOARCHITECTURE on Instagram by clicking the logo at bottom of the page.

NouvelSydney

Sydney’s Starchitects Part 2

One Central Parkis one of the most inspiring multi-residential developments in Australia in present times. Sydney’s SEPP65 which dictates design quality of residential flats has allowed French Starchitect Jean Nouvel to convince developers to erect a heliostat on the southern side of the building to reflect sunlight onto the lower levels of the building. Skeptics may wonder whether it actually works or not, but after almost 12 months, the Patrick Blanc designed vertical gardens are flourishing and the building is truly amazing.
