Morpheus Performing Arts Center in San Juan, Philippines by WTA Architecture + Design Studio

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Article source: WTA Architecture + Design Studio 

Dreams are series of images, thoughts, feelings and sensations that transpire in the mind during sleep. They are smooth stories that can suddenly become rough, violent. They are storylines that unfold, break and come one after another. Strange becomes reality and senses give way to instincts. Dreams become ideas and visions are created by imagination.

University of Wyoming – Visual Arts Facility in Laramie by Hacker Architects

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

The Visual Arts Facility (VAF) at University of Wyoming consolidates the University’s fine arts program from its scattered locations throughout the campus, addressing the limitations of the former facilities while providing students and faculty the resources to facilitate their exploration in the fine arts. The building is designed to be state-of-the-art, competitive, accessible, and sufficiently flexible to accept program and technological evolution. Sited adjacent to the Wyoming State Art Museum, the VAF is a key component of the campus’s new arts precinct.

The White Mountain School Catherine Houghton Arts Center in Bethlehem, New Hampshire by Randall Walter of BWC

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source: Randall Walter of BWC

The site for this art studio facility was an abandoned tennis court at the heart of the campus. The School had originally been a private country estate, with landscaping designed by the Olmsted Brothers and most of the original features remain. The original owners gifted the property to the School in the late 1930’s but the majority of the original architecture was lost in a tragic fire in the early 1960’s. A new complex was built along with several dorms and all were designed by the same architect, John Carter. The campus therefore has a very cohesive “mid-century modern” aesthetic.

Zaanstad Cultural Cluster in Netherlands by MVRDV

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Article source: MVRDV

Since 2001, the centre of Zaanstad has been transformed to agree with the style of the nearby UNESCO World Heritage site the Zaanse Schans. Architectural highlights of this requirement include the city hall in shape of oversized Zaan houses and the Inntel hotel, which appears as a large stack of the same green houses. The new Cultural Cluster is the next step in this urban plan. The question was raised of how to continue the Zaan style given these existing variations of the traditional house, and also how to secure a clear identity for each of the established cultural institutions within the larger envelope of a single building.

CONTEMPORARY ART SPACE IN THE OLD CONVENT OF MADRE DE DIOS, Spain by Sol89

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Article source: Sol89

The intervention interprets the building where is inserted, an old convent, as a context in constant transformation over time.

The project arises from a reflection around the creation process in contemporary art, its unpredictable condition and the current dissolution of limits between the space of production and exhibition. We can recognize that much of contemporary art expression understands the architectural space as a matter of work (we remember Shibboleth by Doris Salcedo breaking the floor of the Tate Modern in London in 2007, High Plane V by Katterin Sigurdardottir occupying the false ceiling of the PS1 in New York or Esto no es un graffiti where artists demolished some facings of walls in the same place of our project). We think the contemporary exhibition space shouldn’t be projected like a static room in time but like a never ending space in ellipsis, waiting for each exhibition come for completing it.
