Architecture of San Francisco International Airport by SOM Architects

September 13, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Architecture of San Francisco International Airport, designed by SOM Architects. Located in San Francisco, California. This iconic structure creates a powerful identity for both the airport and the City of San Francisco. Its form and aesthetic stem directly from functional necessity—the roof’s wing-like form directly expresses the structural diagram of its bending forces. The building is the largest base-isolated structure in the world. [ SOM Architects ]

Apollo Office Building Design by SOM Architects in Amsterdam

August 11, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Apollo Office Building, is Amsterdam Building was designed by SOM Architects, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Amsterdam’s Nieuw Zuid District is characterized by an attention to design detail, context, contrast, and scale—trademarks of Hendrik Petrus Berlage, the early 20th century Dutch architectural master who inspired the Amsterdam School and whose Master Plan for Nieuw Zuid is considered one of the great exemplars of its kind. SOM’s thoughtful design for the last developable site in the district could thus be no less than, as its designer suggested, “an essay in the responsibility of architecture in which the individual achievement must be in harmony with the collective sense of design.” [ SOM Architects ]
