Soumaya Museum in Mexico City, Mexico by FR-EE – Fernando Romero Enterprise

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Article source: FR-EE – Fernando Romero Enterprise

Museum buildings tend to be conceived either for maximum functionality – acting as neutral containers for art – or as iconic structures that represent a city at a particular historic moment. The Museo Soumaya was designed as both: a sculptural building that is unique and contemporary, yet one able to house a collection of international paintings, sculptures, and decorative objects dating from the fourteenth century to the present.

River Room in Chelmer, Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

This project involved the refurbishment and extension to a 1990’s cottage that had been substantially damaged during the January 2011 Brisbane River floods. The existing house enjoyed north east aspect river frontage but had very a poor connection to the river as well as massively underutilized living areas. The primary scope for the project involved the reconfiguration of the existing deck area into the “River Room”, conceived of an indoor/ outdoor space that could be calibrated by the clients to use year round. The space involves a chamfered trapezoid plan with a highly articulated glazed north-east facade. The glazed wall forms a solid barrier to the cold winter breezes while allowing complete openness and transparency during the warm summer months.
