Luminous Moon-Gate (Taichung City Cultural Center) in Taichung, Taiwan by Form4 Architecture

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Luminous Moon-Gate was designed in 2013 for the Taichung City Cultural Center International Competition. The design intent behind the proposed project hints at multiple interpretative roles for Taichung: a portal into heightened consciousness, a lantern of knowledge, a catalyst for metropolitan living, a cultural lung for the body of the city, a gate toward a responsible future, a center regenerative of community life, a landmark for orientation.

The Abu Dhabi Commercial and Cultural Expo Center by Michael Arellanes II

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: Michael Arellanes II

The method and means of tectonic principles that govern the dispersion of mass and surface in the project proposal are subject to folding and overlapping of curved tectonic bodies. These tectonic and massing arrangements are intended to create paths of intersection and to architecturally express a forward movement projected toward the sea. The architectural formation is governed by articulation of space for the purpose of international expositions and cultural showcases. Retail and entertainment are also integrated as part of the seascape dynamic Expo Center. As the multi-massed complex is a dispersion of activates ranging from shopping, dining, expositions, and yacht clubs, it transforms the edge of Abu Dhabi into an iconic sea formation. Iconic architectural expressions within the proposal are articulated in the sail composition of being in flight at the precipice of the sea. The flowing sail architectural node within the complex becomes the epicenter of the showcase functions while enhancing the viewing, dining, and entertainment experience.

‘Public area’ is further than ‘Private area’ and it is necessity to make a ‘collectivity life’ through the city community and civil society. Moreover, the character of Public area is the character of the city and quality of public area shows the standard of the city.

Marronnier park couldn’t positioned between ‘neighborhood park’ and ‘public area’ before. Until now, every ruins of desire is accumulated, for instance functions, facilities and sculptures that doesn’t harmonized each other.

Nanshan Cultural Centre in Shenzhen, China by ZOBOKI-DEMETER and Associates Architects

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Article source: ZOBOKI-DEMETER and Associates Architects

A new performing arts facility inaugurated recently in Shenzhen, China, designed by architects Gabor Zoboki and Nora Demeter of ZOBOKI-DEMETER Architects has joined the ranks of the most unique cultural venues in China. The building houses a multi-functional concert hall holding 1400 seats, a children’s theatre of 350 seats, extensive public spaces, all embodied in a large complex of cultural and sports facilities in the heart of Nanshan District. The project is the result of a design process of several years, during which time the architects paid special attention to the local needs as defined by the Client, the Mayor of the District who wished to ensure that the building was planned and built from the perspective of the local community. Despite the general practice in large Asian metropolises, the concert hall works without amplification, promising to offer a new concert venue with world-class acoustics within its wooden-clad hall. Adjacent to the large concert hall a smaller theatre has been created, envisaged as a venue for smaller productions, most notably offering a facility for children, one of the most significant members of the growing cultural communities emerging in China. The complex is linked to a larger sports facility, hosting an array of athletic and sports facilities for the residents and students of Nanshan.

Wine Culture Center by MSB arquitectos

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Article source: MSB arquitectos

Although the cellar is surrounded by a vineyard, it is not associated with it. The relationship between the building and the surrounding area is practically nonexistent, largely due to the access road that makes a harsh separation between the building and the vineyard at the arrival zone. On the west part of the building, the separation between the vineyard and the building is less prominent, however a possible symbiosis between the built and the natural is unfulfilled by the strong and enclosed character of the warehouse.

Cascades of Lights in San Jose, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Framing and fading the view become guidelines for the imagination; where an escape from the city is built and transported into a fictional world that is dancing with the wind, and light plays absorbed by its threads that catch between their frames a changing landscape.
