Tucked away in a 26-meter-wide lot in the historic Buenos Aires suburb of San Isidro is a small family home that has garnered a large amount of attention. Though from the street the building seems simple and elegant, the back of the house, which sprawls into a verdant, vibrant yard, is jaw-dropping in its ability to redefine the space around it.
Vectorworks celebrated its 30th anniversary with the release of MODUS news 5, showcasing designs that capture unique interior-exterior relationships between structures and their surroundings. From a living roof in the center of a bustling city to an open-air art museum that follows the natural topography of a rolling landscape, this issue highlights how visionary designers use Vectorworks software to change the way we understand the interactions between design and the natural world.
A design is more than a representation of an individual’s ideas; it’s a reflection of their experiences, environment, and the time in which they live. In short, design is a physical manifestation of a culture, an expression of a society’s values and ideology. That’s why we’ve created the fourth edition of MODUS News magazine: a collection of incredible projects, each designed with Vectorworks software by visionary architects, that provide a snapshot of the world’s diverse and captivating cultures. So begin your exploration and find the inspiration you need to transform the world.
