Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah by BIG

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Article source: BIG

In approaching the design for the new Kimball Art Center, we found great inspiration in the urban development of Park City, the Kimball site, and the city’s mining heritage. We feel the form of the new Kimball Art Center emerges where these rich stories overlap.

Recently crowned as the world’s second-largest economy, China continues to develop new and interesting ways of embracing the free market economy; this time by experimenting with private funding for public buildings.  The new JNC Sales Office/Community Art Center is an example of this inventive approach, where buildings are designed to respond to current and anticipated demographics, cultural and technological changes in innovative ways.

SOSNO Art Gallery- Architecture of Obliteration

French sculptor Sosno and architect Rytis Daukantas transformed one of his sculptures into an Art Gallery building.  Sacha Sosno (born 1937) is French artist of New Realism movement and is one of the legends of so called “School of Nice”. His works has been termed as the art of obliteration. All of his works are masked by empty or full space, inviting the viewer to use his own imagination. Whatever it is some painting, sculpture or building, people have to finish creating it in their minds. The concept of “inhabited sculpture” was born in mid-80s. One of the most recognizable works is 26-meter high monumental sculpture-building “Tete carree” which by now become one of the landmarks in French city of Nice.

La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris, France by Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Article source: Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

Re-structuring an old theatre of the 19th century in the heart of Paris to turn it into an interactive platform for 21st century music and arts poses a number of difficult problems. To sum them up we have conceived of a place that could cater to all the artistic activities of today, a place open to public visits but that was also a working studio where artists could actually create, produce and present.

Galleri Örsta in Kumla, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune

A gallery for modern art, placed in a field. The whole gallery building shines like a traffic sign, when seen from a certain angle.

The gallery building

The new gallery building creates a ‘hamlet’ with the adjacent old farmhouses and the owners’ house, together representing three centuries of building tradition. Positioned on top of an artificial hill, as a buffer to the site’s moist soil, the base of the building follows the hill’s topology. The resulting series of curves at the building’s base, combined with mirroring curves in the rooflines, makes the planar facades seem curved – a bit like ‘cinemascope’ screens.

New Taipei City Museum of Art in Taiwan by Design Initiatives

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Article source: Design Initiatives

Our attempt in the New Taipei City Museum of Art competition is to find the essence of art and to materialize our notion of art; to redefine the meaning of art museum and to alter the way art museum functions; to organize a relationship between ourselves and the world around us. In addition to animate forms we have manipulated the movement in order to induce the production of new urban opportunities. Our proposal is a synthesis of the different programmatic functions: art museum, park, footbridge, services in a flexible, versatile space.
