New Taipei City Museum of Art in Taiwan by Peter Boronski and Jean-loup Baldacci (designed using Sketchup and Artisan)

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: Peter Boronski and Jean-loup Baldacci

This is a large multi-program museum to be built on the outskirts of New Taipei City, Taiwan.

We wanted to make a museum that was well connected to the site and had extremely good public spaces, both interior and exterior. Drawing on the historical convergence of influences from several different nations over the centuries, the convergence of the rivers bounding the site, and the multi-use program of the museum itself we chose to work with the idea of convergence for this project.

But by pulling the park up into the project and by bending the building down into the ground we were able to create something that is in between building and landscape. It is easy to enjoy this museum weather you enter it or just have a picnic, up high on the grass with friends, while enjoying the view.

Camelia Cottage in Carlton North, Melbourne, Australia by 4site Architecture

The client merely asked for more storage and more light. The existing house had various additions over the years and they were poorly built and very run down. The interior spaces were poorly lit and the exterior spaces poorly utilized due to ill conceived planning.

Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres in Glasgow, Scotland by OMA

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: OMA

The aim of a Maggie’s is to provide an environment of practical and emotional support for people with cancer, their families and friends. Since the opening of the first Maggie’s in Edinburgh in 1996, the Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres foundation has grown substantially, commissioning and developing a series of innovative buildings designed by world class architects. While contemporary architecture has a reputation, deservedly or not, for being at times cold or alienating, the goal of each Maggie’s – whether in Glasgow, London, or Hong Kong – is to provide a space where people feel at home and cared for, a space that is warm, receptive, and welcoming.

The Culture Yard in Elsinore, Denmark by AART architects A/S

In many years the attention has been aimed at the site adjacent, where the UNESCO World Heritage site, Kronborg Castle, which is famous for its role in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, exerts its magnetic pull on both tourists and local citizens of Elsinore – but now Elsinore’s old shipbuilding yard has been transformed into a 17.000m2 cultural and knowledge centre, including concert halls, showrooms, conference rooms, a dockyard museum and a public library. The Culture Yard symbolizes Elsinore’s transformation from an old industrial town to a modern cultural hub. In this way, the yard is designed as a hinge between the past and present, reinforcing the identity of the local community, but at the same time expressing an international attitude, reinforcing the relation between the local and global community.

Wavescape pavilion in Yeousu, South Korea by AQSO arquitectos office

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: AQSO arquitectos office

The old ambition of producing a really moving architecture succeeds when it responds to the site and brief requirements. This proposal for the thematic pavilion of the 2012 Yeosu international exhibition has a focus for the people to experience and understand this liquid element through the specific place in which it is located: the ocean. In order to represent water through architecture, the dynamic and translucent qualities of the fluid are translated into details of the pavilion. The pavilion is not bound to a solid state. It is always in action materializing both dynamicity and the varying layers of transparency. The visitor will be guided directly into a zone of coexisting space of ocean and architecture.

Mennonite Church in Elspeet, The Netherlands by FARO Architecten (designed using Arkey)

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: FARO Architecten

Design a church according to the traditional Mennonite principles: a sustainable building, with the user in mind and a space for gathering and meeting. The first Mennonite churches were hidden and inconspicuous; simple places of congregation around the bible. The interiors were sober and as pure as possible. No distraction or ornaments in order to enhance concentration and togetherness. The new church on Mennorode refers to that time.

Railway Control Center in Albacete, Spain by moreno del valle arquitectos, slp

“…wise as the serpents, simple as the doves” (matthew 10:16)

The building is categorical on its implantation, an auxiliar plot nearby the albacete station railways. The proposal gets presence without stridencies, with discretion. The building has to solve a multiuse program, it also has to be a very symbolical landmark.

Ruta del Peregrino Refugies in Jalisco, México by Luis Aldrete | arquitecto

Ruta del Peregrino Refugies

The strategy consists of a series of base modules which can be multiplied in order to give form to the project, and which make the project capable of adaptation and growth. The atmosphere makes sense when two kind of pieces made of ‘adobe clay’ color –which is one of the predominant colors of the region- configure space. One of them is an essential piece to perform a lattice perimeter at the buildings that reflect the play of light and shadows created by the roofs of oak leaves used in most of the rest of the surroundings, which contain a great deal of sensitivity and space quality.
