Museum aan de Stroom in Hanzestedenplaats, Belgium by Neutelings Riedijk Architects

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Article source: Neutelings Riedijk Architects

The Eilandje [The Islet]

The new MAS | Museum aan de Stroom [Museum by the River] is located in the centre of the district called ‘Eilandje’, the old harbour district by the centre of the old city. This district was originally called ‘Nieuwstad [New City]’, as it was the first city expansion constructed by land speculator and urban developer Gilbert van Schoonbeke (15191556) outside the Spanish fortress belt in the sixteenth century. The name Eilandje stems from the fact that this area was surrounded by water on four sides, so that it actually was an island when the bridges were up.

Bronks youth theatre in Brussels, Belgium by MDMA

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Article source: MDMA

The theatre is situated at the Pig Market/Varkensmarkt/Marcé aux porcs. The overall form of a theater is already defined for the larger part by the problem of acoustics; how to solve it. In essence the Bronks is no more then two large boxes fit together with around it enough margin for circulation and acoustics. Below stage level ‘half under under street level’, we have put  the reception, sanitary facilities and techniques. Under the roof top sit the administration and café cum foyer.

Peace Pentagon - Street view

A new shape for this building can succeed only as a visible restatement of its most basic assumptions.  But a building embodies basic assumptions best when it effectively restructures its entire environment— even as economically, socially, and architecturally diverse an environment as lower Manhattan!

Strata Tower in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates by Asymptote architecture

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Article source: Asymptote architecture

As a signature architectural statement, the Strata Tower’s articulate, striking physical presence seeks to encapsulate meaning through the use of abstract form drawn from both local cultural landscapes and motifs and dynamic forces of global influence. The Strata Tower’s design utilizes primarily mathematical means in its design to achieve both a poetic, as well as highly pertinent, architecture for the UAE, a region in flux with ambitions for continued rapid growth.

Cradle in Santa Monica, California by Ball-Nogues Studio

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Commissioned by the City of Santa Monica, Cradle is situated on the exterior wall of a parking structure at a shopping mall – originally designed by Frank Gehry.  The site is near the beach, and is heavily trafficked by tourists on foot and in automobiles. An aggregation of mirror polished stainless steel spheres, the sculpture functions structurally like an enormous Newton’s Cradle – the ubiquitous toy found on the desktops of corporate executives in Hollywood films. Each ball is suspended by a cable from a point on the wall and locked in position by a combination of gravity and neighboring balls. The whole array reflects distorted images of passersby.
