Archaeology Switzerland – National Museum Zurich

The National Museum Zurich provides a new permanent exhibition, designed by ATELIER BRÜCKNER: “Archaeology Switzerland”. It is located in the new building by the architects Christ & Gantenbein, which sculpturally complements the old museum building and makes a continuous and uninterrupted visitor viewing route possible. 500 square metres of exhibition floor space in the shape of lightning lie between the existing cultural-history presentations of the Swiss National Museum. New means of gaining access to the past are thus created – and not only for Swiss people.

Mato in Oliveira de Azeméis, Portugal by Fcc arquitectura

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Article source: Fcc arquitectura 

Of the need for an exhibition space came the “MATO – Art Gallery”, next to Paulo Neves sculptor’s atelier.

Looking for inspiration in their own work of the sculptor, the organic design mirrors the trace of Paulo Neves. Whole body develops without straight surfaces. As if a strange animal has born on site, mixed with the surrounding vegetation.

Hoan House in Nha Trang, Vietnam by Vo Trong Nghia Architects + ICADA

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Article source: Vo Trong Nghia Architects

The house is located in Nha Trang, a city in central Vietnam surrounded by the beautiful ocean and mountains. The client wanted a large house with a large garden. Answering to this request, a single roof is designed as a hanging garden to plant numerous trees and plants on it. The local building code, however, requires almost 50% of the roof area to be covered by gray or orange-color tilings and to be sloped. To obey this rule but maximize the green area atop, the roof is divided into parallel bands of greened roofs and  tiled roofs in an alternating sequence.

Villa Sunnano in Sweden by Murman Arkitekter

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Article source: Murman Arkitekter

The brief was to design a family house on a north facing triangular promontory, overgrown with pine and blueberry bushes, covered with large boulders. The first sketches were made in 2010 and were put on hold until 2013. The project was completed in 2015.

Connected with the water front in all directions; except on one side, due to the risk of flooding.

We wanted to take advantage of the site’s unique conditions and make a dwelling with maximum contact with the surrounding nature and water but with respect to privacy.

New Aarch – Architecture School of Aarhus in Denmark by Cheungvogl

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Article source: Cheungvogl 

Hong Kong based architecture studio Cheungvogl has designed NEW AARCH, the New Architecture School of Aarhus as a two-storey building that provides active workshops and public exhibitions on the ground level. The upper level accommodates theoretical work and quiet reading and working areas.

The NEW AARCH reuses the existing buildings as a new social hub to connect the public with the school over food, exhibitions and events. The design integrates the existing buildings and offers them a new lease of life by transforming the former Institut for (X) and the northern buildings into cafes, bookstore and meeting spaces. The existing buildings intersect with the public central exhibition spaces of the NEW AARCH, forming a new cultural and social center that connects the public life of the campus with the Godsbanen.
