PRINCIPIA ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK in RIJEKA, CROATIA by NENAD FABIJANIĆ

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: NENAD FABIJANIĆ

The opening of the Principia Archaeological Park in Rijeka, in February 2014, enriched the topography of ancient sites on the Adriatic’s eastern shore, adding a monumental locus, unique in the type and the shaping level of presentation. As for the type, the Principia was an architectural and town-planning element of castrum, a Roman military encampment or town, one of the many scattered along the boundaries of the Roman Empire (limites). In Dalmatia, only fragments of no more than two castra, those of Burnum and Tilirum, have been preserved, not the entire complex as is the case with Tarsatica. As for the shaping level of presentation, the intervention is a result of a public competition and a creative authorial concept, which was meticulously elaborated, and implemented in a controlled fashion.

NEW YORK:  As the culmination of a nearly 20-year-long odyssey, the Lower East Side Girls Club has added a new component to its year-old Center for Community.  A classic Airstream Trailer (circa 1958) has been repurposed as a teaching, production and recording studio for LESGC’s WGRL Internet Radio Station and Recording Arts Program.  Prominently displayed in a second story window in LESGC’s recently completed $20 million sustainably-built 12 story building at 101 Avenue D, the studio was designed and configured by Walters Storyk Design Group cofounder/architect/ acoustician John Storyk.

Guggenheim Helsinki Museum in Finland by LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

The skyline of the Guggenheim Helsinki Museum emerges as a sequence of soft golden waves undulating in the harbor.

To the north the volumes are low, to avoid shading the public realm and not to overlook the Palace Hotel; then they rise rapidly and decrease in the center of the building; towards the park the waves rise again and fall to the south, where they find a perfect balance with the harbor’s public realm. There’s a central slope between north and south so that the volume does not interfere with the main views from the park Tähtitornin Vuori, the Helsinki Cathedral and the Uspenski Cathedral.

Phoenix House in Berkeley, California by Anderson Anderson Architecture

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: Anderson Anderson Architecture

The Phoenix house is named for the mythical bird that rose from the ashes of fire to start a new life. This home on a hillside site looking across San Francisco Bay to a panoramic view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge is a rebuild following a tragic fire on the site. The original house was built in 1952 by Berkeley architect Henry Hill for the family of a local lighting fabricator who collaborated with many important Bay Area artists, artisans and architects, from early masters such as Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck, to the region’s mid-century modern masters. With this legacy, the original home was filled with works of art and craft from local craftspeople and the family’s travels in Asia and the Middle East, much of which was lost in the fire.

Bourdages-Cloutier Residence in Montreal, Canada by ADHOC architectes

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: ADHOC architectes

The Bourdages-Cloutier residence is a major apartment renovation where the design was developed around the idea of the duality between the stage and backstage. It is this analogy that shaped the inside of this apartment of the Masson Street in Montreal. Mainly functional, backstage contain mechanics for setting up the show. On the other side, the scene takes the appearance of an empty space where objects are meticulously placed. The architectural interpretation of the relationship stage / backstage translates into the notion served / servant spaces developed in the mid 20th century by the architect Louis Khan. The implementation of these concepts gave birth to the black ribbon going through the apartment, wrapping the backstage areas from the entrance to the bathroom, to end at the kitchen. The rest of the space is painted soberly and furbished of different natural textures. Finally, the visual identity of this project is characterized by high contrasts and offers a classic in black and white atmosphere with a chic but crude materiality.

Norway`s national music museum (Extension, restoration) in Lade, Trondheim by LINK arkitektur

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: LINK arkitektur

Ringve – Norway`s National Music Museum is located on a hill on the Lade peninsula near Trondheim with great views of the cultural landscape and Trondheimsfjorden surrounding the site. The buildings, situated in a typical homestead arrangement, were erected from 1740 to 1952. All of the buildings are worthy of protection. The Ringve National Music Museum has a national mandate to conserve and convey both music and musical instruments. The museum is fitted with a new extension as well as rehabilitation and refurbishing of the existing buildings. The extension is located outside of the stead enclosure as a “black box” for temporary exhibitions. The design of the building is in part inspired by the resonance boxes usually featured in many musical instruments. From the media library, you will find beautiful views of the botanic garden surrounding the estate. A new common entry area with a reception, museum store and café connects both the permanent and temporary exhibitions. In addition, the old banquet hall has also been upgraded and refurbished. One of the main goals of the project was to secure an environmentally friendly design throughout, and the new extension is Norway’s first museum building built in compliance with the passive house standard. A new elevator was installed to secure accessibility for all visitors in the new museum complex.
