Evergreen Building, Vancouver (1978)

A demolition threat backfired and instead got the building a restoration and a heritage listing!

Leša da Palma swimming pool ľ Porto

by Alvaro Siza 1960-66

I don't know if it's against the thread rules, but this project can only be perfectly sensed 3Dimensionally (the noise, the wind, the smell of the ocean,the colors, ...)and with pics , you somehow miss the magic.
So i'll post two contemplative videos that i think captures the essence of the project.

The first one shows the almost spiritual relation between the project and the site and the second one show a more chilled out version of the project. One project, two different atmosphere depending the moment in the day. Hope you'll enjoy as much i did when i visited it.

H1 House, Leon, Spain (2011)

A new building that pays tribute to the forms, space and material that the master architects of brutalism like Kenzo Tange and LeCorbusier used almost half a century ago!

Regjeringskvartalet, Oslo (1969)
Under threat of demolition

They just want to preserve the murals and destroy the sweeping curved concrete mid-century modern Oslo landmark. Not even a hint for restoration.
