Dessau Bauhaus Museum by Selim Senin

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Article source: Selim Senin

The part of plot which virtually has no tree has been selected for deployment of the museum. In order not to prevent the existence of ODF monument, the building was finished behind the monument. The main entrance is provided via FriedrichstraBe. After entering the museum, temporary exhibition hall is reached which has been designed to take place in parallel manner to KavalierstraBe. At the end of temporary exhibition, workshop space and main exhibition hall starts. Workshop space is open to use via external access from the side of ODF monument as well. Temporary exhibition hall and workshop space are completely enabled to integrate with each other thanks to operable glass division panels.

Mieczyslaw Karlowicz Philharmonic Hall in Szczecin, Poland by Estudio Barozzi Veiga

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Article source: Estudio Barozzi Veiga

The Philarmonic Hall, which is to accommodate a concert hall and a chamber music hall , is a very complex building that occupies the same space as the former music building. This is a synthetic project that shares identifying traits with its surrounding context. Mass, versatility and the shape of the roof-lines are dominant, connecting the hall with the rest of the city.

Atrium House in Gotland, Sweden by Tham and Videgård Arkitekter

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Article source: Tham and Videgård Arkitekter

Atrium House is a vacation home for a family of three generations on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. It is built on a slight ridge that marks the former location of the coastline a thousand years ago. In relation to the open and expansive landscape, the building seems more like a low wall than a house. It is built around a completely enclosed atrium courtyard that is designed to serve as a fixed point, a sheltered outdoor room. The rest of the property is left undisturbed as a meadow where grazing sheep prevent the land from returning to forest.

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Article source: Jenni Reuter Architects

Villa Sundsvedja is located in the Dragsfjärd archipelago.

The manor of Söderlångvik was formerly owned by Amos Anderson, a well-known patron of culture. Today it is a museum. In addition, the manor has an apple orchard, greenhouses, agricultural operations, direct sales and a cafe. The estate is owned by the Föreningen Konstsamfundet foundation, which had long been wanting premises to be rented to executives and their families. A beautiful plot was found by the shore about one kilometre from the main building.

THE HIVE PAVILION in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates by Rabatanalab

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Article source: Rabatanalab

The hive becomes an integrative component of the current master plan “Ipogea”, developed by the city of AL Ain. The study proposes trees rendering the area a more attractive natural setting. Additionally we designed a pavilion which runs parallel to the highway limiting the spread of the urban encroachment. This pavilion becomes a venue for future exhibitions in a “nature-oriented” atmosphere. The pavilion is an hexagonal structure composed of aluminum ribs. The design takes its inspiration from the shape of oases and beehives functioning as micro cities within the pavilion. Each hex consists of a carbon structure covered with a Kevlar fiber (woven with geometric patterns) and a protective insulation layer. We keep the environment cool by a piping system designed to cool both the interior and exterior with fine-mist water spray. To contribute to the interior comfort, the floor is suspended and ventilated. The structure is extremely light and designed to be easily mounted; each hex is autonomous from a structural point of view and is removable since it is bolted to the lightweight platform that supports it
