Clappers in 36 The Calls competition

These two are not shortlisted entries.... Just two of the few designs that were featured in other blogs bec of ...I metits..... It is for the competition 36 The Calls which asked participants to design a building in a vacant lot in Leeds, You OK. It is like providing a missing link, except architects really like their work to stand they make their building cuss from its context. Which is cool because, you dont want another fake oldy built. these two ...a cucumber and a cheesegrater didnt make the cut in the said competition. For the cucumber scheme which studiodosi designed.... cant really describe it well.. it just looks like a huge drum covered with plants that glow in the dark. the program is bohooo... nothing new....but clap clap for thinking of the environment....anyways...if you have a garden roof and climbing ivies on receive an instant clap clap from design dummy...(as if it matterS)....
The second one..designed by Davide Marchetti Architetto..which was ...something that looks like a scheme that had a more interesting program and B.S.--ing with it's design..which is really just "push and pull"... is more fitting with the context....according to the designers is made of rammed earth where they introduced the holes....these walls act as sunscreen..... however, it looks like copper in the renderings. I agree with one of the comments in Dezeen that the it was a big mistake to make the opposite side (street side) a blank is like J.Lo without the ass....
