Monterrey, the third largest city in Mexico, is best known for its beautiful mountains and strong industrial backbone. In the heart of the city is Fundidora Park, a unique specimen of industrial archaeology (it was previously a massive steelworks and foundry established in 1900). The park is home to extensive gardens, museums, convention centers, auditoriums, theme parks and cultural venues such as Conarte (Council for the Culture and Arts of Nuevo León).

L’Atelier in Normandy, France by AAVP Architecture

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Article source: AAVP Architecture

In the town centre, close to the Place d’Armes, the town of Gournay-en-Bray has just completed a cultural centre which houses a multimedia library and cultural activities. This new centre is built on the site formerly occupied by the Damau factory.

The “Workshop” (a reference to the old Damau factory workshops) meets two major challenges: building a contemporary structure at the back of the plot by redefining the relationship with its natural environment (gardens, alleys, neighbouring stone walls) and surrounding structures (noble styles, traditional shelters, buildings with character) ensuring the new structure is readable in relation to existing buildings by framing the views from the main and secondary entrances.

Taichung Cultural City Center Competition Entry in Taiwan by de Architekten Cie

Taichung Cultural City Centre

The museum and the library are designed as a flexible structure to be able to follow frequent changes in museum and library philosophy. A well-defined system of voids, lifts and escalators is built into both buildings, to provide an indubitable vertical communication and an evident orientation for future visitors. Open and closed interiors are repetitively stacked on top of each other and are refined by bended floors and curved atria.

Taichung City Cultural Center Competition Entry in Taiwan by Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

Article source: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Main Concept
Rationality and Sensibility, the both terms are the base that establishes human culture or intelligence.
Human’s rationality is revealed through philosophy, mathematics and science whereas the sensibility is freely expressed in our lives in the form of art, music, literature, etc.
The both terms can be interpreted into architectural language, where the rationality is defined as a Library and the sensibility is depicted as a Fine Arts Museum.

Taichung City Cultural Center Competition Entry in Taiwan by Williamson Architects

DESIGN STATEMENT
“The primary space is, by default, the plaza space defined by the awe of the water walls.
There is however no sub-ordinate space. All have their peculiar qualities.
All are challenging the accepted norm, contradicting pre-conceived and naturally occurring ideas of structure.
This built form is only the start of the adventure.” Brad Williamson (Architect)

Taichung City Cultural Center Taiwan by RTA-Office

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

Article source: RTA-Office

Our proposal is strongly based on the idea of a container — a unique vessel that encompasses a multitude of architectural objects, various spaces, and the relationships between them. Inspiration for the design of our shape was derived from traditional Taiwanese basket weaving.

The final result is a unitary transparent skin that allows stolen glimpses of the complexity that lies inside.

Thus this object becomes a contemporary interpretation of an ancient traditional art and culture. Comprised of thin lines of recycled ceramic elements, the skin gently filters the light that reaches the interior and enhances the shapes of the volume. The skin of our design not only serves to enhance the aesthetic value of the building, but it also reduces our impact on the natural environment by taking advantage of passive technologies such as solar shading and natural day lighting.
