Changsha Meixihu International Culture & Art Centre in China by Zaha Hadid Architects

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The International Culture & Arts Centre embodies a unique variety of civic nodes and spaces: A Grand Theatre, a Contemporary Art Museum, a Multipurpose Hall and supporting facilities. The central plaza is generated by the relative position of these separate buildings and offers a strong urban experience whereby the flow of pedestrian visitors that come from all sides of the site intersect and meet. In parallel it also stretches outwards to the neighboring streets with unfettered and phenomenal views across Meixi lake with access towards Festival Island.

Lago Maggiore Casalinghi and Ghigos Ideas officially present the new collection “Apparecchiare la città”. The collection is not realized by a unique company, but by a wide network of production firms that represent one of the most historical Italian district production lines. Changing the usual prospective and opening up to experimentation, these companies valorize their specific manufacturing culture, putting them into a common project, as testimonial of the intelligence and the creativity of Made in Italy.

NIARA in Valladolid, Spain by Amas4arquitectura

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Article source: Amas4arquitectura

The Niara Sports Club needed a place of its own for its activities. After finding a suitable site in an easily accessible, outlying residential area with a low population density, the Schola Foundation decided to concentrate a large number of its activities into a single building, thus fulfilling a number of complex requirements that included an educational and recreational area for children at two different stages of development- “small” and “big” children; a separate area for parents’ meetings and activities, an area for offices, a residential area, and a block of independent services. All of the above were laid out around the chapel which, together with the sports complex, is the nucleus of the centre.

Grand Hall complex at the ZAMEK Culture Centre in Poznan, Poland by Toya Design

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Article source: Toya Design

In 2007, when we set out with the competition for a design to modernize the castle we had one goal: to create a space where its recipient becomes its subject. So that those who find themselves within that space may feel it has been made bespoke for them. Functional and open.

Thus far, the castle had been different – it intimidated people with the labyrinth of rooms and the vastness of dark halls. With its immense programme and the appetite for even more activity, the Culture Centre suffocated in the heavy body of the neo-Romanesque edifice.  Hence the need for a change – uncompromising, bold and comprehensive.

Can Font Cultural Center in Barcelona, Spain by Taller 9s Arquitectes

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Article source: Taller 9s Arquitectes

Can Font is a “Masia”, an architectural traditional catalan typology that represents the important rural heritage of the village of Les Franqueses, sited near Barcelona. Some years ago it was an isolated building, surrounded by fields of cultures, but nowadays it is placed in the middle of an urbanized area, remaining ‘corseted’ between new buildings. The new planning for the area that abolished the open space existing in front of the main facade, converted the lateral façade facing the new square, without architectonical interest, as main facade.

PALOMA in Nantes, France by Tetrarc Architectes

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Article source: Tetrarc Architectes

At the eastern approach to Nîmes, on the Remoulins and Avignon road, between town and country, motorway and suburbs, aerodrome and hills, the new contemporary music venue is going to magnetize the citizens of Nîmes, Marseilles, Avignon, Montpellier and Arles, with its striking architecture, a concentration of manifest energy. First amongst the performances that take place here, it mesmerizes the passer-by with the dynamism of its dramatic forms and immerses the spectator in a sculptural and colourful universe spread out beneath its angular shell.

Cutty Sark Pavilion in London, United Kingdom by BAKOKO

Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous sailing vessels. After being decommissioned, the historic clipper ship has rested in a dry dock in the centre of historic maritime Greenwich where it served as public museum. Grimshaw Architects in association with Youmeheshe Architects and Designers were commissioned to design a cutting-edge visitor centre within and beneath the ship as part of a 27 million pound conservation programme that required closing the attraction for a complete restoration overhaul.

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

Starting from the intent to upgrade the existing backside of an existing building and the desire to cluster all youth activities in the municipal community of Kortenberg, the choice was made to build a new youth center above the existing storage spaces of the cultural center Columba. This location was also much better situated than the current location of the youth center.
