Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan in Bergamo, Italy by Asymptote Architect

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: Asymptote Architect

Bergamo, Italy—
Asymptote Architecture’s design for the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan, a 100,000-square-meter commercial development, was recently unveiled at the MAPIC international retail real estate conference in Cannes, France. The site for the new master plan is an area south of Orio al Serio International Airport near the historic city center of Bergamo in Northern Italy. The master plan, as conceived by Asymptote, is a meandering and intriguingly articulated collection of surfaces that seem to have evolved naturally from the adjacent farmlands and calls for powerful, yet subtle, new architectural works placed on an urban plinth. Overall, the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan is a signal for the possibility of such developments to be aesthetically compelling and architecturally dynamic.

Jewish Community Center Mainz in Mainz, Germany by Manuel Herz Architects

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Few Jewish communities used to surpass the one of Mainz in importance and tradition. During the Middle Ages being the major center of religious teaching, this importance can be traced back to a series of influential Rabbis, especially Gershom ben Judah (960 to 1040) whose teachings and legal decisions had impact on Judaism at large. His wisdom was deemed to be so large that he was given the name “ מאור הגולה “ – ‘Light of Diaspora’. The new Jewish Community Center of Mainz attempts to draw out this tradition.

De Nieuwe Liefde in Amsterdam, the Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

The monumental white building on Amsterdam’s Da Costakade was originally constructed in 1901 as a storage space for a wine company, before being converted into a parish in 1932 named De Liefde (‘The Love’). After falling into disrepair after many renovations, and with the last tenants leaving the property in 2007, the complex was completely rebuilt by Wiel Arets Architects and renames ‘De Nieuwe Liefde (‘The New Love’). The reconstruction included transforming the existing complex of buildings into a theatre and community centre composed of a main hall with seating for 230, a conference room with space for 60, a choir space for 50, a library, a grand foyer and a restaurant-café.
