Guggenheim Contemporary Art Pavilions in Saadiyat Island by Asymptote Architecture

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: Asymptote Architecture

Throughout history, art has always served as a powerful and resonating vehicle of cultural expression and a reflection on a society’s status and enlightened position in the world. These pavilions are at once looking into the past, the present and the future, seemingly engaged in a profound and silent dialogue. They are designed to embody timelessness and to allow for varied subjective interpretations and the superimposition of different meanings as time and local culture moves forward. Through their abstract and formal language they are conceived as tectonic gestures, privileging at once elegance, perfection and beauty, all drawn from the unique and profound landscapes, histories and futures that define this remarkable part of the world.

The New Holmenkollen Ski Jump: A Perfomative Project

Project update on November 9, 2011: Holmenkollen Ski Jump Wins The Norwegian Steel Day Prize

Project update on September 22, 2011:

JDS Architects’ Holmenkollen Ski Jump has been announced as the winner of the 2011 ECCS Structural Steel Design Award today at the ECCS Congress in Postdam, Germany. The award recognizes outstanding design in steel construction emphasizing the many advantages of steel in construction, production, economy and architecture.

The European Steel Design Awards are given by the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) every two years to encourage the creative and outstanding use of steel in architecture and construction.

145 years ago the first Norwegian took off from a hill, catapulting himself to the sky, creating a sport that would spread all over the world and captivate millions. Today Oslo remains the undisputed capital of ski jumping, having had annual competitions at Holmenkollen since 1892, served the Olympics in 1952 and hosted several world championships. The Holmenkollen site has been the cradle of evolution in ski jumping and the facility was revisited and improved more than twenty times. Its building history represents a form of record or architectural fossil of the discipline’s progress.

Oslo Central Station in Oslo, Norway by Jensen & Skodvin Arkitektkontor

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: Jensen & Skodvin Arkitektkontor

Oslo S, or Oslo Central Station, is the most important station in Norway. For reasons of sustainability there is a desire to increase the importance of railway transport in the future, thereby increasing further the strain on the capacity of the already congested junction at Oslo S. Previous expansions have been haphazard and partly temporary, and the proposal aims to reestablish well ordered and ample public spaces that are well connected to the surrounding urban fabric.

Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan in Bergamo, Italy by Asymptote Architect

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: Asymptote Architect

Bergamo, Italy—
Asymptote Architecture’s design for the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan, a 100,000-square-meter commercial development, was recently unveiled at the MAPIC international retail real estate conference in Cannes, France. The site for the new master plan is an area south of Orio al Serio International Airport near the historic city center of Bergamo in Northern Italy. The master plan, as conceived by Asymptote, is a meandering and intriguingly articulated collection of surfaces that seem to have evolved naturally from the adjacent farmlands and calls for powerful, yet subtle, new architectural works placed on an urban plinth. Overall, the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan is a signal for the possibility of such developments to be aesthetically compelling and architecturally dynamic.
