Alaska Exhibition in Anchorage, Alaska by GSM Project

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Article source: v2com

In the heart of a fully renovated pavilion at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center—Alaska’s largest museum—the new Alaska exhibition has just been unveiled. This exhibit was realized by Quebec company GSM Project, who were given the task of creating a new permanent exhibition to replace one that was conceived in the 1980s and that presented an outdated vision of Alaska. GSM Project was involved in all phases of development of the new gallery, from conception to production, and took an innovative contemporary approach, putting content centre-stage while using design as a medium through which to tell the story of Alaska as an immersive and interactive visitor experience. At a time when attention is turning North, particularly in relation to climate issues, the goal was to showcase Northernness and Alaskan identity in the face of environmental challenges and preconceived ideas of Indigenous culture.

Wine Country Farmhouse in Calistoga, California by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Project Narrative

Located in Calistoga, a small town in Northern California’s Napa Valley, this renovated farmhouse is placed gently into a landscape of grape vines and matured walnut trees. The clients, local winemakers, desired a modern dwelling that would complement the small estate while working within the structure of the former residence. With the home’s new design, the relationship to site and ambiguity of the plan are simplified through the subtle shifting of openings and partitions, and the addition of key unifying elements.
