This particular project starts from a building renovation from the 60’s that was partially wrecked by the terrible earthquake that seriously damaged the old town of L’Aquila (the heart of Italy) in 2009. Italian Architect Alberto Apostoli completed the renovation of the Palace of Labour, a building in which colors and details of the facade redefine the volume through a geometrical but refined language. The construction is insulated in all four sides; it has no real façade, but it is rather a small tower in which all individual facades are of equal importance.

Such facades have been designed and deployed through small geometrical protrusions that are matched differently, but the colors are complementary and the openings are formed by projecting intrados. The geometric and refined flow of the volumes creates, during the various hours of the day, slight variations which give an unexpected dynamic to the building. The architect describes the primary design goal: “I tried to create a volumetric movement through color, small ledges and contrasts of volumes; what interested me was to dematerialize the facades giving them personality and character. We have developed a system and the color palette to create these projections. ” [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Alberto Apostoli, Photography Tommaso Cassinis]

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

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests
