Beirut House of Arts and Culture in Lebanon by François Blanciak Architect

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Article source: François Blanciak Architect

As a way to organize this cultural venue in a coherent way regarding program, light, and public space, the project re-uses the symbolic morphology of the archetypal pitch-roof house. The upper part of the building is composed of three main volumes that respectively contain artistic, cultural, and house-related spaces, and which are linked by a large triangular void. Structurally, two continuous circulation cores support the edifice and connect all the various disciplines from bottom to top.

Feathered Edge in Los Angeles, California by Ball-Nogues Studio

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Feathered Edgewas commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The project explores the convergence of digital technology and craft. It is one in a series of installations curated by Brooke Hodge and Alma Ruiz. Integrating complex digital computation, mechanization, and printing with traditional handcrafted production techniques, Feathered Edge explores our desire to alter a space with fluid architectural forms that require a minimal use of material while utilizing a new proprietary technique that yields the effect of three dimensional spatial constructs “printed” to resemble objects hovering in space.

Arts centre in La Coruña, Spain by aceboXalonso Studio

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

Article source: aceboXalonso Studio

(In the begginnig, this project’s name was Arts Centre, but nowadays it’s called MUNCYT. In fact, it became the National Museum of Science and Technology.)

This Project is the first price of an international competition to build combination of two different briefs, a Dance School and a Museum. We proposed to develop them in a single volume. This allowed us to explore the relationship between two structures that  were different in every aspect: organization, perception, expression, function and construction. Using both factors, we had the chance to add, sustract, divide, but we chose to multiply. The strange concrete form contains the school while the outer surface, the space between the form and the limit, contains the museum.

The first freestanding building for The Contemporary Arts Center, founded in Cincinnati in 1939 as one of the first institutions in the United States dedicated to the contemporary visual arts. The new CAC building will provide spaces for temporary exhibitions, site-specific installations, and performances, but not for a permanent collection. Other program elements include an education facility, offices, art preparation areas, a museum store, a cafe and public areas. To draw in pedestrian movement from the surrounding areas and create a sense of dynamic public space, the entrance, lobby and lead-in to the circulation system are organized as an “Urban Carpet.”

Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah by Will Bruder + Partners

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: Will Bruder + Partners

KAC as Urban Magnet…

Will Bruder + PARTNERS’ design proposal for the reinvented Kimball Art Center creates a community arts pavilion that is scaled to and complementary to its urban context — proportioned to be understood and enjoyed both from the pace of a pedestrian on Main Street or through the perspective of a visitor’s windshield as they arrive in Park City. The Kimball Art Center is conceived as a comfortable building of its place and time that also celebrates the challenge of ‘the new’. It is a home to the possibilities of ‘making and ideas’, as it serves its mission of providing quality arts education, exhibition, and events.
