Art Academy in Tbilisi, Georgia by Stipfold

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Article source: Stipfold

Harmoniously integrated in the urban area of the city, building still stands with a distinct character of its own. Focal point of the design was to make the space easy to navigate and enriched with a daylight. Overall aesthetics was hugely influenced by Daniel Libeskind’s Royal Ontario Museum architecture.

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Alberich-Rodríguez Arquitectos 

The building site presents a trapezoidal shape quite similar to a regular polygon, with one of its ends curved, and the rest in angle. The building site is practically flat on its north half, and presents a pronounced slope on the south half. The building site’s slope develops itself in a north-south direction with a total drop of approximately 4 meters. The views to the west from the high part of the site are splendid.

Zhuhai Public Cultural Center in China by PLASMA Studio

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: PLASMA Studio

The project is based on the use of a privileged positioning of the building within a corner site, so as to celebrate the various views of the diverse landscapes around it. It has been created a main ribbon, driven by a circulation shaped by the views. It starts in the northeast corner of the site at the last floor all the way till the south east to create a panoramic platform for the urban frontage of the site; then it starts to descend towards the southwest as it approaches the water frontage and its beautiful views. Finally it turns around at the northwest corner and it touches the ground level to embrace the landscape and the inner plaza.

Mont-Àgora in Barcelona, Spain by Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

Santa Margarida de Montbui was a small municipality that the great immigration wave of the nineteen fifties and sixties turned into a dormitory town on the industrial outskirts of Barcelona.

In recent decades it has gradually acquired the basic services that it severely lacked: urbanisation of streets, health care facilities, schools, etc. Still missing though is a cultural centre capable of housing a library, conference room, auditorium and classrooms. In some way, this building represents the end of a trajectory from slum to city.

Da Chang Muslim Cultural Center in Hebei Province, China by Architectural Design & Research Institute of Scut

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Article source: Sunshine PR

Cultural architectures have always been academician He Jingtang’s “specialty”.

Project Dachang National Palace is no doubt his another masterpiece. Located in Dachang Hui Autonomous County, Langfang, Hebei province, the project is supposed by the local government to be an iconic design, introducing Dachang’s particular culture and enhancing the soft power of the city. The national palace is thus endowed with multiple functions, serving not only as the recreation center of the city, but the essential cultural site for the introduction of local religion and history as well. It has undoubtedly brought lots of challenges to the designer, because of the special ethnic composition, historical context, religious belief, complex functional requirements of the site and the setting of a cultural landmark.

Het Kielzog Cultural and Municipal Complex in Hoogezand, The Netherlands by De Zwarte Hond

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: De Zwarte Hond 

The Municipality of Hoogezand-Sappemeer has been given a single, prominent, public building in which a theatre, an arts centre, a library and the town hall are accommodated. In the dynamic heart of this Dutch municipality citizens are served a wide palette of services, information, education, culture and recreation. Existing elements, such as the theatre auditorium, dating back to the 1980s, are re-used in the new development. The adjacent town hall, at the moment still in an outdated state, will ultimately undergo a complete transformation. In the meantime the existing premises and the new build function as a single entity. The connecting, central street forms a temporary solution to the gaps in the present infrastructure. Both in terms of use, as well as technological exploitation and urban design, the new central building has great advantages for Hoogezand-Sappemeer.

Spira in Jönköping, Sweden by Wingårdhs

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: Wingårdhs

Spira is twisted as a spiral to catch the attention of the eye as well as the body; transparent, to turn every side into a front; compact, to be efficient and sparse; meandering, to create expectation.

The performing arts centre Spira in the city of Jönköping is a regional scene for music and theater in the southern part of Sweden. It is a culturally vivid part of the country, but the performing arts have not had a permanent stage so far. Our proposal is a result of a winning competition from 2005 and the house was inaugurated on 11.11.11.

Piknic Électronik in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Fourteen years ago, four amazing electronic music visionaries created an event that revolutionized the Montréal cultural scene:Piknic Électronik. Just a few minutes from downtown on the picturesque Île Sainte Hélène, the Sunday afternoon celebration has become so huge that it draws top DJs from around the world. In 2007, the success of Igloofest, a winter version of the same concept, exploded the phenomenon. Today, the formula has been replicated on an international scale, from Barcelona to Melbourne, through Dubai and across to Santiago. To give their ever-expanding team a vibrant yet practical place to work, the producers contacted the architects at L. McComber. The new HQ will be fun, laid back, open and productive…just like the young company!
