Throwback: Emmanuel House flats, West Dulwich, London, 1970. Credit: Tony-Ray Jones The block provided what the Architectural Review described as 'a piece of drama in these otherwise staid streets' of Victorian semi-detached houses. Characteristically the photographer Tony Ray-Jones, shooting for the Review in 1970, exploited the structure’s unusual shapes and angles to further enhance the dramatic potential of his image. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAJournal #EmmanuelHouse #WestDulwich #Dulwich #London #1970 #1970s #TonyRayJones #Flats #Councilflats #Review #Brutalism #Architects #architecture #brutalistarchitecture #TBT #throwback #ThrowbackThursday

Alison Brooks vertical cloister - you have to lie on your back to get this view. Credit: Hugh Pearman "Stairways to heaven. Reaching towards the light. Infinity reflections. These recurrent tropes of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, to be found deployed by disparate nationalities and cultures, represent – what, I wonder? Freespace, they called it: that’s the overarching theme for the exhibition as set by directors Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects. It’s a fine concept, intended to emphasise that architecture is about so much more than ostensible function, goes beyond the walls of buildings into another realm of shared civitas, of human exchange. ‘Citizens should demand architecture as a civic right,’ they say." Hugh Pearman explores the Venice Biennale in this month's RIBAJ. #RIBA #RIBAJ #Venice #Biennale #VieniceBiennale #AlisonBrooks #Cloister #Verticaldesign #Verticalarchitecture #architecture #architects #VeniceArchitectureBiennale

Looking through the barn from the street you can see the length of the site, past the raised beds and animal pens to the courtyard garden and the studio beyond, nestled into the boundary wall.

Looking up at the ceiling in the Wohl entrance hall in Burlington Gardens. David Chipperfield’s painstaking reorganisation and unification of the Royal Academy murmurs rather than shouts, but makes beautiful sense.

RIBA South Awards 2018. Thames Tower, Reading. Sustainability award. Image credit: Jack Hobhouse @jackhobhouse dn-a architects for Landid Property & Brockton Capital Contract value: Confidential GIA: 23,470 m² Thames Tower, bang in the middle of Reading, could have been just another office building and once it was: this new structure replaces an older Thames Tower, a stumpy and outdated 1970s office block. The development team didn’t demolish the building, though, but stripped it back to its original concrete frame and then completely reimagined both interior and the exterior. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #RIBAAwards2018 #Thames #Thamestower #sustainability #Reading #Repurpose #Oldmeetsnew #office #officearchitecture

RIBA South Awards 2018. The Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre, Oxford. Image credit: Nick Kane Niall McLaughlin Architects for Worcester College, Oxford @niallmclaughlinarchitects Contract value: £8.9m GIA: 846 m² Cost per m²: £10,517 Worcester College had an urgent need for teaching facilities in one of Oxford’s most historic colleges. The result is a building of extraordinary elegance. Every space is high-ceilinged and flooded with daylight, every element is designed and crafted to the most exacting tolerances and standards, and every part fits together sweetly – from the radial brick pavers to the curved seats and huge oak doors of the auditorium up to the spaces themselves. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #SouthAwards #South #SouthEngland #architecture #Oxford #SultanNazrinShahCentre #WorcesterCollege #Auditorium #Schoolarchitecture

RIBA Northern Ireland Awards 2018. Maison Wedge, Killinchy. Image credit: Aidan Monaghan @aidanmonaghanphotographer BGA Architects for Henry and Denise Quinn @bgaarchitectsni Contract value: Confidential GIA: 240m² Maison Wedge is a private house that sits just below a ridge line in the landscape, giving it expansive views along the Strangford lough shore of drumlins, sea inlets and other sites of archaeological interest. Two elegant forms partially clad in timber make up the sprawling, low lying building, with parabolic roof forms that echo the rolling countryside of County Down. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #RIBARegionalAwards #NorthernIrelandAwards #NorthernIreland #MaisonWedge #Killinchy #architecture #Strangford #CountyDown

RIBA Northern Ireland Awards 2018. County Down Barn, Newtownards. Image credit: Micah Jones @micahtjonesarchitect Micah T Jones Architect for private client Contract value: £245,000 GIA: 240m² Cost per m²: £1,021 This is a beautifully crafted building that references its site through the use of the barn typology; the local area by its exploitation of the drumlin (little ridge) landscape; the vernacular via its scale and section, and the need to build sustainably through its location, compact form and layout. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #RIBARegionalAwards #RIBANorthernIreland #NorthernIreland #Countydownbarn #Newtownards #Barn #Barnarchitecture

RIBA Northern Ireland Awards 2018. The Weaving Works, Belfast. Image credit: Todd Watson RMI Architects for Karl Group Contract value: Confidential GIA: 3,400m² This project involves the refurbishment and repurposing of a former Victorian linen warehouse, in a conservation area immediately to the south of Belfast City Hall. The success of the scheme, which secured full occupancy before completion, depends on the skill shown in balancing the retention of original structure and fabric with the insertion of new finishes and servicing to provide grade A office space above ground-floor restaurant and café uses. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #Regionalawards #Belfast #NorthernIreland #architecture #Victorianarchitecture #warehouse #warehousearchitecture #oldandnew #repurposing #office #officebuilding #officearchitecture

RIBA East Midlands Awards. University of Nottingham Advanced Manufacturing Building. Image credit: Phil Grayston Bond Bryan Architects for University of Nottingham Contract value: £17m GIA: 9,000 m² Cost per m²: £1,889 This building is immediately recognisable as a dynamic and powerful statement at the gateway to the university’s Jubilee Campus. However, its assured simplicity belies a complex brief and a series of well-resolved and interesting interior spaces. A large simple volume containing functional workshops contrasts with a more fluid accommodation block containing office, research and meeting spaces. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #RIBARegionalAwards #EastMidlands #UniversityofNottingham #JubileeCampus #Nottingham

RIBA Yorkshire Awards 2018. Square Chapel Arts Centre, Halifax. Image credit: Mark Hadden @markhaddenarchitecture Evans Vettori for Square Chapel Arts Centre @evansvettori Contract value: £4.7m GIA: 1,927m² Cost per m²: £2,462 This is a gem of a project, neatly connected to the adjoining grade I listed Piece Hall. The Square Chapel is a red brick grade II* listed chapel that was converted in the late 1980s into a thriving, but cramped, community arts centre. Now it has new facilities, knitted together by a bold triangular ‘prism’ which reconciles the various geometries and levels. The foyer, conceived as a woodland glade, uses steel branched columns to replace trees previously there. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAYorkshireAwards #RIBAAwards2018 #Yorkshire #Squarechapelartscentre #Halifax #architecture

RIBA Yorkshire Awards 2018. The Hide, Driffield. Client of the Year. Image credit: Jim Stephenson @clickclickjim Group Ginger for Yorkshire Water @groupginger Contract value: £425,000 GIA: 156.5m² Cost per m²: £2,716 This is one of Yorkshire’s best locations for bird watching, claiming over 265 species of birds since 1959. As well as the extensive resident population, many migrants are attracted to use the coast and River Humber as a flight path to and from Europe and further afield. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #RIBARegionalAwards #TheHide #Driffield #Clientoftheyear #GroupGinger #Yorkshire #RiverHumber #Birdwatching

RIBA North West Awards 2018. 101 Embankment, Greengate. Image credit: Allan Crow (Hufton & Crow) @huftonandcrow Flanagan Lawrence for Ask Real Estate @flanagan_lawrence Contract value: £38m GIA: 19,058m² Cost per m²: £1,994 101 Embankment is an important piece in the regeneration jigsaw at the junction of Salford and Manchester, facilitating the extension of Manchester’s business and retail district across the River Irwell into the long neglected Greengate area of Salford. The building is the first part of a two-phase development arranged on several levels. A grade II listed sandstone viaduct forms a grand base for the new office building, which sits 9m above a significant new area of public realm. @RIBA #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #Regionalawards #NorthWestAwards #RIBANorthWest #Greengate #101Embankment #AllanCrow #FlanaganLawrence #Salford #Manchester #Regeneration #RiverIrwell #sandstone #officebuilding #officearchitecture #architecture

Durham Cathedral Open Treasure Conservation Award Building of the Year Image credit: Andy Marshall @fotofacade Purcell for Durham Cathedral @purcell.uk Contract value: £5.26m GIA: 1,705m² Cost per m²: £3,086 Purcell has worked with Durham’s cathedral staff for more than seven years to insert new visitor spaces to showcase its collection of historic items, from medieval books and stonework to Anglo-Saxon artefacts, in the existing grade I-listed buildings. The architect has remodelled previously hidden spaces and created suitable environmental conditions for the differing needs of the collection. #RIBA #RIBAJ #NorthEast #Regionalawards #DurhamCathedral #Opentreasure #ConservationAwards #Buildingoftheyear #Purcell #historicbuildings #architecture #historicarchitecture #Durham

RIBA South West Awards 2018: Pengwynver, Penzance Image credit: James Ram @jameschetwoderam Stan Bolt Architect for private client Contract value: Confidential GIA: 305 m² This extension to a 1920s granite cottage above Cornwall’s Sennen Cove has transformed the house, removing mid-century accretions to reveal a robust shell. The extension is conceived as a rippling wave: three pitches with ridges running parallel to the house. The single storey form is spaced off the existing cottage by a flat roofed entrance zone. From the road, the slate-roofed extension sits subservient in scale to the two storey cottage. #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAAwards #RIBAAwards2018 #JamesRam #StanBoltArchitects #SouthWest #RIBASouthWest #Pengwynver #Penzance #1920s #cottage #Cornwall #SennenCove #architecture

Awards issue: RIBA South West Building of the Year sponsored by Artifice Press. Image credit: Max Creasy @maxcreasy Charlie Bigham's Food Production Campus, Wells. Feilden Fowles for Charlie Bigham’s Contract value: Confidential GIA: 7,860 m² As the first phase of an ambitious 20-year masterplan for the redevelopment of Dulcote Quarry to create a food production campus, this building sets a direction of travel, with a quality working environment and a bespoke production line ready for growth. From a brief which demanded exceptional standards for only a modest extra cost to a typical factory, the architect has produced a playful building which responds to site context, brief and historic industrial archetypes. It masterfully mediates between the primacy of the process and the wellbeing of the workforce – attracting talent is critical. @feildenfowles #RIBA #RIBAAwards #SouthWest #SouthWestAwards #Buildingoftheyear #artificepress #CharlieBigham #FeildenFowles #Dulcote #foodproduction #architecture #foodproductionarchitecture #RIBAJ

I’m not here. Japan’s Junya Ishigami first attracted attention with his invisible architecture; now, through exploration of landscape, memory and scale, it is the architect himself who is disappearing.

Purcell’s reincarnation of a hangar at Filton for Bristol Aerospace Museum displays the exhibits in their own historic and significant setting. The Bristol Type 173 double rotor helicopter was a prototype that was developed through the late 50s and 60s – but is invested with a contrasting modernity by its positioning alongside the brick piers.
