National Museum in Oslo, Norway by Bureau SLA Loos Architects

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Article source: Bureau SLA &Loos Architects

It would be an understatement to call the location for the new National Museum of Norway prominent. Situated close to the waterfront, in-between the city hall, the city centre and the new area of Akerbrygge, it occupies a prime position. Especially for people arriving on cruise ships, this is the vestibule of Oslo. No wonder that it’s also one of the most photographed areas in the city, judging from the photos available on Google Earth.

Comprehensive School in Paris, France by Suzel Brout Architect

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Article source: Suzel Brout

Olivier-Métra school is set on a plot surrounded by 1930s red brick HBM (habitations à bon marché / social housing; nowadays HLM: habitations à loyers modérés) and small houses with gardens, and dominated by recent major housing projects located on Belleville Hill. The aim of the project is to create a building that stands out of the heterogeneous architectural fabric.  Seeking space and light, the school sets into the urban fabric. The free volumes, federated by the use of a sole material, pre-weathered zinc, spring out and create liaisons; the vegetation penetrates into the breach; the southern light slips into the playground punctuated by a coloured floor that continues into the classrooms; facing east, the classrooms enjoy morning sun.

This project aims to create a harmonious mix of different building typologies set in a large fully permeable garden setting.
