IPE HOUSE by David Pedroza Castañeda
The IPE House is a very simple scheme that divides the plot in two segments: A house and a patio in a loft like open configuration.
The midday sun forms an eclipse as continuous ring drawn together by direct and projected light, where land (material light projected onto the curved wall) and sky (immaterial direct light / clarity) engage in that particular magic moment to let out the soul in its ascent to heaven by the time window of the eclipse generated daily.
This house is nestled in the dense bushland of Bowen Mountain, an elevated rural region adjoining the Blue Mountains National Park in New South Wales with views back to Sydney.
LETH & GORI’s Brick House is a project that creates innovation by reinventing history. By revisiting materials and solutions from historic houses which have proven to be robust and have a long life span a new type of contemporary sustainable house is created.
Parametric Architecture curated by Barrios Escudero
We are attracted to parametric design as a resource with which it is possible to achieve efficiency and fidelity between the design concept and result of a project. Through geometric and algorithmic relations, it also forms a bridge between traditional architectural production and new technological possibilities.

House for P by LOW Architecten
"The roof structure is tangible everywhere in the house, there are no straight lines when you look at the ceiling. The result is an extraordinary spatial perception when you enter the living area."
Bring Back the Brick curated by Randwick and Associates
"Brick is one of the longest lasting and oldest building materials. However, in recent years, brick has been pushed aside in the construction process, mainly for technological reasons. Construction of a brick wall takes time, but perhaps more importantly we have developed a tendency to cover, and not to expose, structural elements of the building. Brick has become an expensive material. For that reason it is not often that we get a chance to use masonry in our design, but when we do, we find it fascinating how this simple choice of construction technique somehow slows the whole design process and shifts focus to the construction site."
