Lenovo Office Interior Design by Gensler Architects. In consolidating its North American offices into a single national headquarters, Lenovo wanted an environment that reinforces its brand attributes and personality. Gensler responded with a space that exudes innovation, imagination, entrepreneurial spirit and approachability. In two five-story buildings and one four-story building, open planning enhances communication with “touchdown stations,” team rooms, informal meeting areas and a central conference zone on each workplace floor. The palette is neutral — from natural stone to exposed concrete — to contrast the thematic graphics and nature imagery. The complex also includes a customer center, cafeteria, café/store, full conference center and auditorium, training rooms, product showroom and labs. [ Gensler Architects ]

Architecture of JetBlue Airways Terminal 5, JFK International Airport, designed by Gensler Architect. Located in Queens, New York. With its curved rooflines, JetBlue Airways’ first terminal responds to its unique location near Eero Saarinen’s historic TWA terminal. From a functional standpoint, Gensler designed the terminal to complement JetBlue’s business model. The 640,000-gross-square-foot, 26-gate terminal provides exceptional customer service, with a tailored plan for circulation and seating in the concourse. The ticketing lobby and holdrooms are sized as transitory spaces, while concessions areas are larger as JetBlue customers tend to buy food and drink before boarding. Wider space between gates allows JetBlue’s Airbus 320s to easily turn around, minimizing delays. [ Gensler Architect ]

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 ]

The Middle East Modern Art Museum was designed by UNStudio, located in Khor Dubai, UEA. First launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, will be a celebration of the importance of Dubai Creek as a new cultural hub within Dubai as a global city. based on the form of a dhow, the museum holds a variety of spaces to exhibit Arts and Culture such as exhibitions, art galleries, leasable workshop spaces, auditorium, and amphitheatre for live performances and international festivals. In addition, MOMEMA offers a boutique hotel with 60 keys and a boutique retail promenade on the active Culture Village waterfront, as well as a high end signature restaurant on the top level, with 360 degree views of Dubai Creek.

Maya Ubud Hotel and Spa, is Luxury Hotel and Spa in Bali, Indonesia. Designed by Denton Corker Marshall. Located high between two river valleys, Maya Ubud sits on a long peninsula of land, which slopes gradually before dropping off dramatically at the southern tip where the Maya Spa sits near a small waterfall on the banks of the river Petanu. Maya Ubud juggles with new and traditional concepts in its design: there are no intricate Balinese paintings, masks nor statues; instead, a deeper, Ancient Balinese concept is celebrated through its landscape and architecture.

Its siting is inspired by the prehistoric Balinese tradition of orientating the villages along the Kaja-Kelod sacred axis, linking the mountains in the centre of the island – the realm of Gods (Kaja) – to the surrounding seas where the demons are (Kelod). A ceremonial central spine follows the main ridge connecting the major public spaces such as the porte-cochere, lobby and spa. The ‘houses’ are then positioned on both sides of the village axis following the contour of the land. At Maya four parallel lines in the form of massive stone walls emphasise the main ceremonial spine. Modern functional spaces are free to slip in and out of these walls; some go further, hanging over the cliff in the case of the swimming pool and restaurant. Culture and heritage are celebrated wherever you look. The subtlety of this celebration is that it is not immediately recognisable to the observer. [ Denton Corker Marshall ]
