ORANGE in Japan By N MAEDA ATELIER

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Article source: N MAEDA ATELIER

Our recent residential project ORANGE is intended to realize a space where children can touch the raw world with their innate, pure sensitivity.

The concept has its root in my personal absorption in phenomenological and ontological spatial studies during college.

JOAN MARAGALL LIBRARY in Barcelona, Spain by BCQ arquitectura barcelona

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Article source: BCQ arquitectura barcelona

The main decision has been to construct the new building under the old existing garden and not to occupy a part of this space. The motto with which the project was presented in the ideas competition was “Garden of Light”. These two words sum up the two ideas of the project: maintaining and improving the existing garden, while at the same time providing joyful and well lit spaces. The library inserts under the garden of Vil∙la Florida civic center under the shade of its trees. Inside, a landscape in itself, articulated and changing, where each use and each user find their place. It is a personalized and unique space.

Lunel and Sète offer two new museums to the Languedoc Roussillon region in France By C+D ARCHITECTURE

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Article source: C+D ARCHITECTURE

The recently opened Médard Museum in Lunel and the Maritime Museum in Sète are now part of a wide choice of cultural visits offered in Languedoc Roussillon. The region has supported the towns in the financing of these cultural amenities. Benefiting from new funds, the two museums stand out  from the rest because of the way their architecture has been restored – they are both diametrically opposite in historical terms – and because of the content of their respective collections.

Set down in a stretching landscape the new studio, its materiality subtle – muted, its form rooted in simplicity – emblematic of modern design, is a controlled gesture, gently resting in the countryside, forming an expression of our ideology.
