Art-Palace by TOTEMENT | PAPER

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: TOTEMENT | PAPER

The main task of this project, to our opinion, is creation of a new city contexture resolving a visual conflict between the image of modern European city (with the “Izmailovo” hotel complex constituting a part of it) a new growth (rather interesting to the public and a brand identity of the area) that does not blend in the city situation where original historical and cultural monuments are less sizable and more chamber, rather than the grandiose historical stylization.

Quaker Meeting House and Arts Center, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C by KieranTimberlake

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Article source: KieranTimberlake

Sidwell Friends School, a K-12 Quaker school in Washington, D.C., transformed a 1950s gymnasium into a contemplative space for worship, with additional facilities for art and music instruction. The gymnasium had been used as a makeshift worship space for more than a decade; its location on campus was ideal, its acoustics and architecture were not.

Kimball Art Center in Park City by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects

Park City and the Kimball Art Center exist in an alpine landscape of great scale and beauty.  While this is a superb location, it is a daunting challenge to making a building with an iconic presence.

Rather than trying to compete with the power of this place we have chosen to capture and contain its spirit through framed openings to the mountains and the sky.  The new galleries, on the upper level, flank two outdoor rooms.  Surrounded by sheets of hammered and punctured copper – these are sky rooms – looking out to the landscape and open to the atmosphere.

Center for the Performing Arts in Scottsdale, Arizona by John Douglas Architects

Friday, December 13th, 2013

Article source: John Douglas Architects

This 1975 performing arts center was one of the most notable projects designed by the late Arizona architect Bennie Gonzales, FAIA, who also designed Scottsdale’s signature municipal structures, including the city hall and main library, which are linked to the arts center by the park-like Scottsdale Civic Center. Gonzales was known for his simple, pure forms that echoed both classic Southwestern and Native-American architectural themes. Gonzales designed the 100,000-square-foot arts center to include a large main theater, a smaller, secondary theater, gallery space, offices and a vast central atrium.

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

The project of the contemporary art center (FRAC) for the region Provence Alpes Cotes d’Azur (PACA) is the 3D version of the “museum without walls” invented by André Malraux, famous Frenchwriter and politician. It is a museum without a museum, a living and moving place, where the art pieces are in a constant movement and join the logic of diffusion and interaction with the visitors.
