The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust in Los Angeles, California by Belzberg Architects

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust (LAMH) opens its doors this fall as the permanent home and display of a collection of artifacts from a ghastly era one-half century passed.  Located within a public park at the site of an existing Holocaust memorial, the architecture of the L.A. Museum of the Holocaust straddles the line between autonomous sculpture and a civic destination mindful of the institution and public audience it serves.  Museums must function in a precise manner to simultaneously deliver a message through potent content presentation while offering a spatial experience which affords visitors a contemplative asylum.  Additionally, this museum uses architecture to enhance the ambient foundation for visitors to receive the intended messages being delivered through each display.  Ultimately, the overall design of the building and interior displays transforms each visitor’s encounter with the building and surrounding park into a memorable event capable of instilling a lasting impression of the genocide which occurred and the tolerance needed to move forward compassionately.

Villa Belvedere in Cuneo, Italy by Marco Acerbis Studio

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Located in one of the most beautiful northern Italian landscapes, Villa Belvedere literally conveys the astonishing surroundings in one simple yet animated object.  Its lightness reminds of the wings of a plane and the way it plays with light and shadows enhances what at first sight might appear as an elementary geometry. It is not. The whole house, located on one single floor and covered by one big statement roof is articulated to create an architectural experience of constantly changing views, lights and colours while walking through internal gardens, huge living spaces, a sixty meter long and top lit corridor, independent spacious private rooms and a secret hidden garden with plunge pool.

Auditorium of the School of Music in Groningen, The Netherlands by Alex van de Beld

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

The old auditorium at Groningen’s School of Music has been given a completely new identity. Breaking open one of the façades allows sunlight to stream into the hall and establishes a relationship between the hall and the adjoining patio. An oak interior was rolled out lengthwise, transforming the existing elements in the hall – floor, stage, balcony, walls and ceiling – into a unified whole. The organ was integrated in this wooden interior. The acoustics of the hall were improved by opening up the wooden surfaces, between which the lighting fixtures are set. The auditorium has been transformed into the ‘innards’ of a musical instrument.
