DESIGNBOOM: the wave by henning larsen architects reaches completion in denmark

the wave by henning larsen architects reaches completion in denmark

copenhagen-based practice, henning larsen architects, marks the completion of ‘the wave’ apartment building in vejle, denmark. construction on the 14,000 square meter complex began in 2006, but due to the global financial crisis in 2008 the project was interrupted and eventually spanned an eleven-year build period. inspired by the landscape of the area, ‘the wave’ marks a new sculptural landmark of vejle. the clear and easily recognisable signature of the structure connects the residential zone with the sea, the landscape and the town. during the day the white waves are reflected in the water and at night the characteristic profile resembles illuminated multi-colored mountains.

ARCHDAILY: Namba Parks / The Jerde Partnership

The Jerde Partnership’s Namba Parks, in Osaka, Japan, was just named one of the winners of the Urban Land Institute’s 2009 Awards of Excellence: Asia Pacific competition. When asked to create a gateway to redefine Osaka’s identity, the architects responded with this project that would become a natural intervention in Osaka’s dense and harsh urban condition. The rooftop park offers a sloping park plane that is “bifurcated by a sinuous, open-air ‘canyon’ path that reinforces the connection with nature while forming the primary circulation pattern.”
