Quirijn Park in Tilburg, The Netherlands by Karres en Brands

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Karres en Brands

The Quirijn Park is situated on a narrow strip of land that was once intended for the main traffic access to North Tilburg. The new urban development plan transforms this open area into a living link between the formerly separated neighbourhoods of Quirijnskto and Heikant, and brings about increased housing differentiation within North Tilburg. The emphasis therefore also lies on thee nw connections between the bordering neighbourhoods. The park works like a ‘zip fastene rb’etween both districts.

GENERATOR VENICE in Venezia VE, Italy by DesignAgency

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: DesignAgency

The newest destination in Generator’s expanding portfolio, Generator Venice aims to change Venice’s staid hotel and nightlife scene. The hostel occupies an 1855 Palazzo originally built as a granary warehouse, converted in the 1950s into Venice’s only hostel. On the waterfront of the quiet, residential island of Giudecca, Generator is a one-stop vaporetto (water bus) ride from Venice’s main hub of San Marco’s Square. Each of the modern rooms – from the private suites to the dormitories – have panoramic views of neighbouring gardens, across to the Lido, the Grand Canal, or to San Marco and the Doges Palace.

Article source:  MVRDV

Collection Building is an art depot open to the public. A public route zigzags through the building, from the lobby on the ground floor where a café can be found up to an exhibition space, sculpture garden and restaurant on the roof. On the way up the route passes along and through art depots and restoration workshops. In depots visible from the route, the exhibition can be changed on a daily basis by simply moving storage racks so each visit to the building can offer a unique experience. On three floors the route passes through exhibition spaces which will be programmed by Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
