Wine Culture Centre in Negrar, Italy by Rabatanalab

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Article source: Rabatanalab

The landscape of the Veneto region, where the Cantina Valpolicella Negrar is located, is by nature an hybrid; a place where the boundaries between town and country are extremely fluid and controversial but highly rich in creative opportunities. The challenge that the rethinking of the WCC Negrar proposes, is the Re-establishment of a new relationship with this delicate Italian landscape.

The Crystal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup A/S

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: Dorte Mandrup A/S 

Nicknamed “The Crystal” because of its semi-translucent “skin” made out of polycarbonate that allows for the inner light to escape into the dark Copenhagen night, The Crystal has become somewhat of a local landmark. Flexibility and coherency are other keywords regarding The Crystal. The inner landscape is painted green, which creates a coherency that allows the various areas of the facility to seem visually and spatially connected – even when they are apart or on different levels. The building’s steel and timber structure is covered with opalescent polycarbonate panels with a low U-value. This translucent cover offers excellent daylight conditions.

The Singapore Chinese Culture Centre (SCCC) is a new civic and community institution, spearheaded by the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clans Association (SFCCA), for the promotion of traditional and contemporary Chinese arts and culture locally. The SCCC will house an array of civic and cultural facilities such as interactive exhibition spaces, visual art gallery, a multi-purpose hall, recital room, reading room, practice and rehearsal room and a 530-seat auditorium. Other functions within the centre include office spaces for SCCC, Business China, clans, agencies, 270 number of carpark lots, and some F&B components. Set in the bustling CBD along Shenton Way, with the Marina Bay skyline as a backdrop, SCCC will be located on a site adjacent to Singapore Conference Hall (SCH), a landmark gazetted as a national monument in 2010 and home to the Singapore Chinese Orchestra. Seen as a cultural hub for the Chinese community, both buildings will form a unique synergy through their programmes. Contextually sensitive, the SCCC’s design complements the architecturally striking SCH, with its coherence and clarity of programme, planning and articulation.

ACTIVATE, GENERATE, INTEGRATE! in Kristiansand, Norway by SPARCH Sakellaridou / Papanikolaou Architects & Meinich Arkitekter

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Article source: SPARCH Sakellaridou / Papanikolaou Architects

The Museum of Modern Art

We wanted to create a powerful image for the city skyline and a poetic spatial experience for the art lover. At the same time we wanted to keep the industrial image of the Silo. We wanted to give it new life without gentrifying it.

Our Museum is a hybrid Silo, industrial once, now filled with light and art. Its warehouse remains a warehouse, its tubes get filled with light and movement, its ethereal extensions do not disturb the robustness of the original structure, while the big horizontal ‘crane’ reflects the sunlight.
