Indoor sports centre and Conference centre in Tignespace, France by Sylvain GIACHINO Architecte

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Article source: Sylvain GIACHINO Architecte

The new indoor sports and conference centre in Tignes is an extraordinary project that meets the ambitious challenge of providing an exceptional facility very discreetly, without fuss. Located in a restricted site, its single stone and glass façade mirrors the majestic mountain and lake landscape around Tignes. The building’s 8,300 m2 are buried under a planted roof, visible from all angles, which will become a flowery meadow in summer and a young children’s ski area in winter.

Dalian International Conference Center in China by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Article source: COOP HIMMELB(L)AU

The building has both to reflect the promising modern future of Dalian and its tradition as an important port, trade, industry and tourism city. The formal language of the project combines and merges the rational structure and organization of its modern conference center typology with the floating spaces of modernist architecture.

Conference Centre, Corporate Campus Apeldoorn in The Netherlands by ADP Architects

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Article source: ADP Architects

The central building of the Corporate Campus Apeldoorn, designed by ADP Architects, is the conference centre. The whole building is set up to stimulate interaction and communication.

As working in a green environment is the main concept of the campus the landscape literally continues in to the entrance hall of the conference building, so nature and architecture melt together in the heart of the campus. Standing in the tall entrance hall you can see the restaurant, and the 25 conference rooms located on different floors. The restaurant, seating 750 people, is spread out over different levels gradually stepping down towards the forest outside.

This was the first prize in a restricted national contest announced by the “Madrid Autonomous Region” and the Getafe Town Council. Once we had won the contest, we talked to the jury, composed of four architects. They told us the had very much liked the plan and that it bore a great resemblance to the monastery of San Lorenzo del Escorial in its ground plan and size, which made it even more interesting.

The seminary began with some sketches of Jesuit and Engineer Miguel de Alcolado, later on Joan Martorell and Lluis Domenech i Montaner started to work in the project giving the building the monumental and desired style.
