Alloy on John Street

Last week Mayor Bloomberg "Announce[d] Approval of Development That Will Allow for Expansion and Funding of Brooklyn Bridge Park." Specifically this headline is referring to a 47-unit, 100,000-sf development at 1 John Street in DUMBO. The development team is comprised of Alloy Development and Monadnock Construction, though the press release linked above does not indicate the architect responsible for the design.

A hint at who is responsible for the building design can be found in Alloy Development, which has Jared Della Valle (formerly of Della Valle Bernheimer Architecture) as its President. DVB undertook projects as both architect and developer, a situation that seems to have precipitated the split into Alloy and Bernheimer Architecture—the former focused on development and the latter on architecture. So is 1 John Street's boxy and glassy design the product of Alloy Development itself? I'd wager it is (a sentiment echoed by Crains).

Aedas Designs A Postcard Building For Novotel Hotel In Shanghai

Anchoring at the southern end of the main commercial street at Shanghai’s Hongqiao Changning Linkong Park, Aedas-designed Linkong 16-1 Novotel Hotel is a 220-key hotel occupying a block in the Linkong Park.

The design concept is derived from a ‘floating courtyard’ and utilises the verticality of the structure to create a well defined zoning which consists of public (retail podium), semi-public (leisure and hotel amenities) and private (hotel guestrooms) zones.

In addition to rational zoning, the design promotes a strongly interactive relationship among different functions, transforming the zoning diagram into a building mass with unique yet powerful spatial effect. The building comprises two components – one as a retail podium ‘floating’ along the water’s edge with spacious waterscape; and the other as a courtyard-style guestroom structure which seems like ‘floating’ in the air.

Two storeys in a staggered pattern are fitted between the two volumes to provide a water cascade, dining area and open courtyard as one of the hotel auxiliary facilities. All three spaces are combined into an integral whole to offer completely different visual and spatial experiences during day and night, catering to different users.

With an iconic architectural design and distinctive spatial arrangement, the hotel is set to become a signature postcard building for Linkong Park.
