Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: SPEECH Architectural Office

The State Tretyakov Gallery is a museum that symbolizes Russian culture, conceived by its founder as an open institution accessible to the public, which “is useful for many and enjoyable for everyone.”

Following the philosophy established by P. M. Tretyakov of keeping pace with society, changing along with it and responding to its needs and demands, the State Tretyakov Gallery today is striving to become a “museum of a new type, an interactive space where multiple communication links are established in order to unite the elements of the museum’s traditional conservatism and dynamism of development.

Thessaloniki’s Wet Dream in Greece by Not a Number Architects

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: Not a Number Architects

The project is a proposal for a subterranean public bath beneath a central urban plaza with a glazed roof at street level. Responding to the city’s ambitious plans for the total redesign of Eleftherias Square (i.e. Freedom Square) into a landmark that will become a magnet for the city and beyond, our proposal sets to re-establish Thessaloniki’s long lasting culture of public baths as a form of built social space par excellence.

SQUARE HOUSE VEIERLAND in Nøtterøy, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The house is situated in a pine wood on Veierland, a car-free island outside Nøtterøy in Vestfold. Perched on stilts above a rocky ridge it gently hovers in the woodland, leaving no footprint. This impression is further enhanced by a homogenous surface of dark wood, which gives the house an inconspicuous, almost muted character.
