Olson Kundig Architects designed Shadowboxx, an open residence flanked by trees and a rising bank, on the island of Lopez in the U.S. state of Washington. According to the architects, the residence aims to “facilitate an intimate understanding of this special place and explores the tradition of gathering around a fire“. When the giant shutters are not closed for protection, the exterior of the house can be easily mistaken for a compact mass of steel clad glass.

A very strong connection with the outdoors was enabled: “The building purposely confuses the traditional boundaries between a built structure and its surroundings. Its masses are modeled by winds off the water, exterior cladding is allowed to weather and rust, and shifting doors, shutters, walls and roofs constantly modulate the threshold between inside and outside“. A seamless transition from one room to another may remind one of the layout of an art gallery. The most spectacular interior of the Shadowboxx is probably the bathhouse, topped by a roof that can be detached at the push of a button.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
