Emerging from the surrounding landscape, this most fluid of structures provides a major new venue, landmark and source of regeneration for the city of Baku – admitting visitors to a library, museum and conference centre through folds in its continuous outer skin, the interior spaces flooded with natural light via a glass façade.

The Culture Yard in Elsinore, Denmark by AART architects A/S

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: AART architects A/S

In many years the attention has been aimed at the site adjacent, where the UNESCO World Heritage site, Kronborg Castle, which is famous for its role in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, exerts its magnetic pull on both tourists and local citizens of Elsinore – but now Elsinore’s old shipbuilding yard has been transformed into a 17.000m2 cultural and knowledge centre, including concert halls, showrooms, conference rooms, a dockyard museum and a public library. The Culture Yard symbolizes Elsinore’s transformation from an old industrial town to a modern cultural hub. In this way, the yard is designed as a hinge between the past and present, reinforcing the identity of the local community, but at the same time expressing an international attitude, reinforcing the relation between the local and global community.

Foam, Cultural Centre in Girona, Spain by Carles Sala and Relja Ferusic, from SALA FERUSIC Architects, Barcelona

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Carles Sala and Relja Ferusic, from SALA FERUSIC Architects, Barcelona

The Cultural Centre of ‘Roses’ is based on the design of mechanisms to conduct and qualify the natural lighting, so as to adapt it to the requirements of the centre. Therefore, the building has been considered from the idea of the sea foam, as the volume has been fluffed through  a patio that spreads the natural light into the building, while a white perforated skin tones the light down and guarantees the energy efficiency of the building.

Ciné-moiré: Changing the Face of Pushkin Square in Moscow, Russian Federation by Barker Freeman Design Office (designed using Rhino, Grasshopper, and Maxwell)

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

Our proposal for the historic Pushkinsky Theater creates a programmatic envelope for the existing volume that expands the territory of the theater into a series of enfolded layers and surfaces that connect the building enclosure to the plinth on which it resides and out onto the landscape of Pushkin Square itself.  The shifting angles of the new envelope knit together the two axes in the public space of the square:  the building’s frontal alignment with the park, fountain and Pushkin statue and its diagonal relationship to the Boulevard Ring angling away from it.
