OA Kindergarten in Saitama, Japan by HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no Shiro

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Article source: HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no Shiro

As building of kindergarten that welcomes 50th anniversary has not been earthquake resistant sufficiently, an urgent measure was required.

We decided that our main theme is to tell the children “fossil fuel and to use what they can use carefully” from two viewpoints of urgency caused as a result of lack of the earthquake resistance and educational element of the kindergarten, and not by using an approach where a new building is constructed usually but by constructing using a marine container, reinforcing the earthquake resistance by using the existing structure and renovating, we realized a construction in short period, suggested to a sustainable society, reduced large volume of carbon dioxide as well as created an ecological and educational environment for the children.

Article source: Dorte Mandrup arkitekter

An Icefjord Centre in Ilulissat will attract tourists to Greenland and contribute to our understanding of climate change. The Danish architectural firm Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter has designed the visionary building for the centre with respect of the unique, UNESCO-protected natural surroundings.

The vision of a world-class tourist attraction in Ilulissat has come one step closer to realization with the selection of Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter’s proposal for an Icefjord Centre. The centre will help develop Greenland’s tourism and will serve as a global portal to understanding the ice fjord and, not least, its culture and history as well as the dramatic melting of the Greenland ice sheet.  The parties behind the centre are the Greenland Government, Qaasuitsup Municipality and Realdania.

New Access and Columbarium in Madrid, Spain by Muka Arquitectura

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Article source: Muka Arquitectura

The local goverment of Lozoya put us in charge of the intervention in the closing and enlargement of the Municipal Cemetery. We had to work on the separating element between, according to Platon, the visible world and the intelligible world, that is, the earthly world from the eternal one. The half-ruined clay wall which needed to be repaired separated both physically and visually the two different worlds, as if both of them could be understood through the wall.
