Linking city to river promenade, the new Beethoven Symphony Hall rises – a beacon of light, a porous multifaceted crystalline mass,  growing out of earth,  floating on water. This iconic structure, its two embedded performance spaces softly visible from without, becomes a ‘performer’ in its own right after dark.

The site is 150 acres of agricultural land at the edge of Toulouse, near a large international airport serving the region, and one of the largest and economically important Airbus factories in the city. The client – Société Publique Locale d’Améngement (SPLA) – has decided to relocate the existing Parc des Expositions (PEX) in Toulouse from the city centre to this new location in order to be “closer to the infrastructure and services consistent with economic development of the city”.

Hennepin County Library in Maple Grove, Minnesota by Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

In the past ten years, Maple Grove has grown to become one of Minnesota’s largest suburbs. The area has evolved from a natural oak savanna and agricultural fields to gravel mines serving the state highway system. This ever-changing landscape of human development resulted in barren land and artificial lakes (leftover from mining activity) as the future site for the library.
