atelier thomas pucher: amstetten school campus

graz-based architecture firm 'atelier thomas pucher' have begun construction on their international first prize design of the 'amstetten school campus', located in amstetten, austria. the development combines two existing secondary schools into one central location with a new music school and gymnasium. the compact five-storey cube creates a distinctive landmark to the surrounding area comprising of two lower volumes and three courtyards within a chessboard formation. the main concept behind the formal design is the creation of a variety of spaces that can organize the functions of the building.

oh yeah I didn't notice that there's no railing there... maybe they're going to add one. otherwise I would say stone tiles make an expensive roofing material.

I think you're a bit fooled by the picture. It's just a standard roofing membrane...nothing special. It appears to have rained recently and is reflecting light. It's not occupiable space so no railings are necessary, and I'm not sure what you mean by "stone tiles" since there isn't any visible in the shot. The roof doesn't appear to be draining like it should. The picture isn't flattering, in fact it's kind of scary.

I think he was joking... but for the record, I was referring to the ponding on the roof.

That's a ton of extra weight for the structure to bear and even a well-installed roof membrane can have tiny flaws that can quickly become big ones if there is standing water.

It's awful. On par with the Florida Dalí museum in terms of awfulness.

Crit> Surgical Strike
Michael W. Folonis Architects designs a light-filled Outpatient Surgery and Oncology Center for UCLA in Santa Monica.

The latest addition to UCLA’s aggressive off-campus healthcare expansion in Santa Monica is the UCLA Outpatient Surgery and Oncology Center: a crisp concrete block by Michael W. Folonis Architects. Humanely scaled, full of natural light, and forward-looking in every way, this exemplary facility contrasts sharply with the UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center, Robert A. M. Stern’s turgid pastiche of red-brick Romanesque across 16th Street.

I love slender slabs.

Also, those are jail towers? Probably some of the nicest looking jails around.
