National Museum of Fine Arts – Expansion Proposal in Quebec City, Canada by OMA Architect

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: OMA Architect

The MNBAQ and its new pavilion are enveloped in a context of historical heritage. Listed buildings in a historical park populated by centenary trees constitute a straightjacket of inhibiting concerns. The complexity of the context- the urban requirements, the respect for heritage, the significance of the surroundings, the dispersal of the various museum buildings, the heterogeneity of the historical buildings constitutes a series of paradoxes that we had to deal with.

It’s all about a project for a summer home, as a result of an order that from the beginning had precise conditions in terms of program: a big living room, connected to an office area; a service area with space for light meals attached to the kitchen; a private area with two small bedrooms and a suite with an incorporated sauna; a garage with an incorporated workshop space; a swimming pool with a big solarium; well illuminated interior spaces opened over the landscape; Formal soberness and a contained budget were also demanded.

Taiyuan Museum in China by Preston Scott Cohen designed using Rhino & Catia

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: Preston Scott Cohen

The Taiyuan Museum of Art works as a cluster of buildings unified by continuous and discontinuous promenades both inside and outside. The building responds to the urban parkscape in which it is set; visitors are encouraged to pass through the building while not entering into the museum itself. An exterior ramp threading through the building connects the heterogeneous hardscapes, lawns and sculpture gardens. The integration of building and landscape registers multiple scales of territory ranging from the enormity of the adjacent Fen River to the intimacy of the museum’s own particular spatial episodes.

Construction Distance

  • Architects: Preston Scott Cohen
  • Project: Taiyuan Museum
  • Location: Taiyuan, China
  • Client: Taiyuan City Government
  • Total Area: 32,500 m2
  • Construction Budget: 6,500 RMB/m2
  • Software used: Rhino was used to design the form and the facade manufacturers used Catia.

Children’s clinic Wildermeth Biel in Switzerland by bauzeit architekten

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: bauzeit architekten

The children’s clinic ‘Wildermeth’ in the early 2000s decided to join the hospital complex Biel. This is envisaged to improve its services and simultaneously reduce operating costs through synergies with the existing hospital. This integration was not without problems since the clinic for children, as institution has existed for decades, did not wanted to lose its identity and visibility.

Shounan House in Chigasaki, Kanagawa by Jun Igarashi Architects

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Article source: Jun Igarashi Architects

The site is located at an intersection in Kanagawa, province near Tokyo. It is a 10-minute walk from the station and many housing is left from the old. On the North side across the street, an enormous factory stands behind a two story wood construction apartment. A three-story housing complex sits on the South and an old abandoned house on the west with a small cemetery past it. This project is larger than the surrounding building because there is no gift tax due to the reconstruction of an existing building.
