I'm so glad such a thread exists I see most of my favourites have been mentioned already- Ban, Ando, Zumthor and loads more. I'll post some pictures soon, when I find their credits- I'm such a dirty jpeg thief!

For now, I shall just express my admiration for Shigeru Ban's cardboard experiments. Gotta love the cardboard bridge.

edit: Apparently it's sometimes referred to as "Pont-du-Gard's little brother" by the French media, which is super-cute in my opinion

The Tote, Mumbai India :

Quote:
In the middle of one of Mumbai’s most beautiful open spaces, an old shell has been given a new interior. UK architects Chris Lee and Kapil Gupta of Serie Architects have redesigned ‘The Tote’, a banquet hall, restaurant and bar. The colonial facade of the Tote building gives way to what looks like a bleached, enchanted forest. In the banqueting and indoor restaurant areas, white metal pillars branch out like trees as they reach the ceiling, creating the effect of walking down a forest path.

The restaurant is split into three areas—lounge seating on a veranda enclosed by glass panels; an indoor dining room sandwiched in between, and an alfresco space with the foliage of lush rain trees latticing the sky. This open-air section will house pits for a grill, tandoor and wood-fired ovens and tables sheltered by umbrellas. Chris Lee and Kapil Gupta of Serie Architects wanted to extend the feeling of being under the dense foliage of the rain trees into the building, which led to the tree-mimicking pillars.

^Great work!

I admire the firm LTL Architects for their use of economical design techniques using inexpensive materials in unexpected ways. They do a lot of work on small restaurant interiors in New York:

Tides Restaurant


Xing Restaurant


Fluff Bakery

I think domestic architecture in Japan is really something and Suppose Design is quite representative of that..












They seem really mindful of the uses and applications of space, they tend to a sort of minimalist aesthetic
but still manage (somehow) to create a feeling of each house's presence..
