A distance in time of fourteen years separates the first design and the latest of the De Rotterdam building. The photos show the works on the building in August 2012...
The function of living is the most difficult to insert into hybrid programmes. Throughout this double issue which brings to a close the Hybrids series, a+t graphically analyses 20 recent projects and supports the inclusion of housing in mixed developments.
The volume also includes a historical analysis of 12 classic examples where the differences between hybrid buildings and social condensers are clearly outlined.

Project published in Hybrids III. Residential Mixed-use Buildings
Five towers sculpted by the angles of solar inclination stand over a commercial base with a practicable public roof, a plaza sheltered from the hectic avenue.
The northeast of Paris is made up of fragments of the city that jut out over a landscape of transport infrastructures. The urban plan for the area, designed by Dusapin Leclerc, looks to re-establish the connection between Paris and its outskirts by creating new centralities between cities.
In the Hybrids series, we included several projects based on the return to the financial centre of North American cities. The centre had lost its spirit due to suburban dispersion but is recently witnessing the appearance of a multitude of residential developments. In this context, Lakeshore East is an urban plan that is completed in the centre of Chicago and Aqua Tower is the only hybrid building that has been programmed.
A distance in time of eleven years separates the first design and the latest –shown in these pages– of the De Rotterdam building. It involves a multipurpose complex located in Wilhelminapier, the wharf which aims to act as a counterpart, on the other side of the River Meuse, to downtown Rotterdam.
The re-conquest of the city centre by the same well-off classes that had abandoned it began in New York. Currently, and in spite of the recession, this real estate boom does not seem to be slowing down.
The city of Ljubljana is adapting its cultural infrastructure to the new times. Musica Ljubljana will be built close to Bavarski dvor Square and will complement the old Opera Theatre, a Neo-Renaissance work dating from 1892.
