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.

More projects by Zaha Hadid

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.

The project concerns the refurbishment and the extension of the Lille Modern Art Museum in a magnificent park at Villeneuve d’Ascq. The existing building, designed by Roland Simounet in 1983, is already on the Historic monuments list. The project aims at building up the museum as a continuous and fluid entity, this by adding new galleries dedicated to a collection of Art Brut works, from a travelling movement that extrapolates existing spaces. A complete refurbishment of the existing building was next required, some parts were very worn.

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.
