Malmö Central Station in Sweden by Metro Arkitekter

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Article source: Metro Arkitekter

Malmö Central Station has always looked to move with the times. Since opening in 1858, the city’s first railway station has been rebuilt, extended and modernised to cater for changing passenger needs over the decades.

The original Terminal Building is in two sections. The smaller Green Hall was a waiting room for third-class passengers in the 1920s. The turquoise tiling has since regained its former lustre and the limestone floor is from Skånska Ignaberga. The Central Hall started out as an open platform building. Its old brick walls and herring-bone tiled floor have been carefully preserved. Beneath the domed roof, 15 shops and restaurants provide an inviting environment for people to meet and eat.

Randerscheinung by Prechteck

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Article source: Prechteck

There are 3 diagrams which explain the pavilion’s concept best:

-the pavilion as modular system:

Held every five years, the event’s cyclical existence called for a temporary building which may be easily disassembled and relocated to another site. The pavilion exists of different parts, housing different functions, all singular cells but the strongest in coexistence with its neighboring parts.

The main concept is that during the 5 years no documenta is held, each cell can be assabled in a different german city and serve as an info booth to the next documenta. At the beginning of the next documenta, the parts get transported back and get reconnected on site.

Toda House in Hiroshima, Japan by Office of Kimihiko Okada

The site is located in a residential area developed on a gentle perch in Hiroshima, overlooking a far view of the Inland Sea and Miyajima. The land of this area is developed into platforms form with several levels. The architecture was requested to have a view over the roof of the neighboring house, standing one level lower, and to consider security, for the site is located at the edge of the residential area, and to leave some space for extension when the client opens a small shop in the future.

In 2006, the Municipality of Budaörs city announced a national competition for the design of its new elementary school with 24 classrooms. Though our proposal won third prize, the contract eventually was given to our office. The competition demanded an extremely elaborate program on a narrow, triangular plot. Besides the 24 classrooms and the necessary field rooms, a fully fitted hot kitchen for the capacity of 500 people, the attached restaurant, a separable gymnasium including 2 basketball fields and changing rooms were to be allocated.
