Museum for Qujing Culture Center Completed in China Designed by Hordor Design Group and Atelier Alter

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: Hordor Design Group and Atelier Alter

Qujing is one of a kind. Two impossible miracles co-exist in city of Qujing: the Longyan Tablet and a fish fossil of 4,000-billion-year-old. While Longyan Tablet marks the invention of a prominent calligraphic style, the fish fossil rewrites geology in human history. The archaeological relics are both metaphor and subject matter of the project. According to Plato, “whatever once exists can never cease to exist,” the collective consciousness of the city and her citizens awaits a resurrection, in a contemporary setting, through the materialization of a series of significant projects.

FERRER XOCOLATA in Girona, Spain by arnau estudi d’arquitectura

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: arnau estudi d’arquitectura 

Building a dream is not easy, but that was the commission. Yes, as usual, but that time it was like never before.

We had to renovate an old building in order to create a space entirely devoted to chocolate. That was the sweet dream of Jordi, the chocolate maker. We had to do it withemotion, with metaphors, with a sense of humour… We had to be at the level of Easter cakes and chickens!

Article source: ATELIER 8000 

In the Czech Republic, the current trend is revitalizing embankments, bringing water and streams back to the fabric of cities under the motto ´River back to the People´. The project “Making the Vltava waterway navigable” thus played its role in initiating this effort; it supports and introduces life back to the water sheet and its surroundings – this is the natural associate part of the project.

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.
