Article source: Michael jantzen studio

The Malleable Space Pavilion is an experimental interactive structure made from a system of components that allow for a wide variety of spacial configurations that range from symmetrical simplicity, to chaotic complexity. The pavilion consists of 192 white colored horizontal elements that are held into place by two gray vertical support columns. Each support column contains 96 of the elements, and each is held into place separated from the others on tracks, which allow all of them to be easily moved back and forth.

Theatre 95 in Cergy-Pontoise, France by gpaa

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Article source: GPAA

The challenges of the project

The contractor’s definition of the project is articulated around a close link between reshaping the Théâtre 95, outlining an urban morphology, and finding free spaces in the urban island.The theatre’s extension is framed by a dialectic vision of interactions between town and theatre: the theatre stretches beyond its limits while the town must find in it a porous space, a space of journeys, echoes, dreams, encounters and everyday life, devoted to contemporary modes of expression and deliberately placed at the very heart of the town.

Cultural Centre of Greenland by Schmidt hammer lassen architects

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Article source: schmidt hammer lassen architects

Inspired by Greenland’s dramatic scenery of icebergs, snowfields and mountains, the main element of the building is sheathed by a floating, undulating screen of golden larch wood. This second skin lends the scheme an elegant airiness, creating a contrast with the solid form of the core building. The screen acts as an architectural metaphor for the Northern Lights, whereas the dark and massive form of the main building is reminiscent of the icy mountains of Greenland.

Sheung Wan IBIS Hotel in Hong Kong by AGC Design Ltd.

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Article source: AGC Design Ltd.

Ibis Hong Kong Central & Sheung Wan Hotel, a catchy, colourful icon strategically located in the bustling Sheung Wan, is only within minutes away from many of the transportation networks as well as Hong Kong Central’s business and shopping hub.  The Hotel, housed with 550 modern, boldly simplistic guestrooms, a restaurant and a bar, boasts one of the first Asian flagships to showcase a brand new vibrant style, bringing in comfort, well-being and caring service.

The hotel exterior and outlook is eye-catching which stands out in Sheung Wan area where Hong Kong heritage prevails.  The hotel exterior is set to be a new landmark and icon in the Sheung Wan district, an interesting streetscape to blend in both modernity and heritage of Hong Kong whilst enlivening Sheung Wan as an up-and-coming tourist area.

Tracing back the story in the 1920s Sheung Wan, the façade design reflects the historical streetscape of Hong Kong: the rectangular tenement houses in repetitive order, collage of huge advertising signage in multi-colours, forming a uniform but dynamic streetscape, A City of Mosaic.

The hotel exterior is set to be a new landmark and icon in the Sheung Wan district, an interesting streetscape to blend in both modernity and heritage of Hong Kong whilst enlivening Sheung Wan as an up-and-coming tourist area. It fully echoes with the Hotel being featured as one of Asian ibis flagships in terms of its hotel scale and benchmark of the hotel branding.
