Schuppen in Berlin, Germany by brandt + simon architekten

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Article source: brandt + simon architekten

The untypical facade of coloured plain tiles make this house a peculiar new member of the urban fabric. Simultaneously the hasty passerby will not neccessarily take notice of the greenish structure blending with plants and trees deep in the gap between neighbouring buildings.

San Jerónimo Hospital Refurbishment in Sevilla, Spain by SV60 Arquitectos

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Article source: SV60 Arquitectos

The old hospital was presenting a conventual domestic cloister altered by successive interventions and that was preserving the optical sense of the wall and the value of intimacy in the perimeter structures. The transformations on the original convent during the hospital period have been hiding part of the past structures and the conventual decoration.

Museum And Educational Center in Moscow, Russia by 3XN

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Article source: 3XN

The intent of the new Museum & Educational Centre (MEC) is to be a meaningful building beyond its iconic form.  Through both an internal and external architectural expression of flexibility, it recognizes that architecture shapes behavior.  In that regard, the new MEC is about connecting with people, while opening up the world of science, technology, innovation and Russia’s extraordinary achievements in these domains. As technology develops and we enter deeper into the 21st century, the convergence of Science and Art becomes even more relevant in our everyday interactions. Today’s society seeks ways that Science and Mathematics can be viewed as approachable disciplines, in order to understand the full potential of technology, and its applications in making our world a better place.  The new MEC will be a gateway to this world, challenging and evolving visitors’ perception of science and technology.

Rochus 1090 in Vienna, Austria by Söhne & Partner Architects

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Article source: Söhne & Partner Architects

When planning this building the instructors made a great effort to include all different requirements in the project without, however, neglecting the idea of a unified architectural line. So when the general refurbishment on Bauernfeldplatz in 1090 Vienna started it was important to connect the different levels and to open up the restaurant towards the road space in the foreground.A special element of the building is the 1913 built and still existing sun garden. Rather than putting it down because of his ongoing decrepitude we decided to keep and rehabilitate it. By opening the portals to ceiling-high windows, the sun garden now connects not only inner- and outer-space but also the different levels of the building.
