Social center, cultural space and esplanade in Nemours, France by Atelier Téqui Architectes

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Article source: METROPOLIS communication

Under the framework of the urban renewal program, the city of Nemours wished to build a social center and a cultural space on the grand esplanade of the Mont Saint-Martin neighborhood. The grouping of a facility of this importance with shops around a reorganized and upgraded public space aims to revitalize activity and strengthen social cohesion. Its central and exposed position help to underscore the building’s function as a public facility.

La Belle électrique in Grenoble, France by Hérault Arnod architects

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Electronic music is a new subject for architecture. Most of the times electro nights take place in spaces that were not specially designed for them: clubs or night clubs, warehouses, fields, stadiums… For the Grenoble project, the aim was to invent a specific architectural system for a new type of spectacle and relationship with the public, whilst allowing concerts with a more traditional configuration.

NEW NEUE GALERIE – MUSEUM OF THE 20TH CENTURY in Berlin, Germany by MCKNHM Architects and Tinkercraft

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Article source: MCKNHM Architects

The building assignment, calling for a new element between “icons of 20th century architectural history,“ Mies Van Der Rohe’s Neuer National Gallery and Hans Scharoun’s Berlin Philharmonics among other listed buildings of high cultural and architectural significance, requires both a sensitive and strong architectural as well as urban intervention. To us, composition, clarity and austerity all coalesce to form an appropriate response, situated at the nexus of the urban fabric at Berlin’s Cultural Forum.

Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in Oslo, Norway by Snøhetta

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Article source: Snøhetta

Snøhetta’s prize-winning design was characterized by the jury as having strongly identifiable themes that tie the building to its culture and place while also presenting an unusual and unique expression that was in many ways new and innovative.

The project developed a highly complex program into a simple general plan that integrated both a practical and intuitive sculptural approach to modeling the exterior form. Its low slung form became a link within the city rather than a divisive sculptural expression. Its accessible roof and broad, open public lobbies make the building a social monument rather than a sculptural one. The building is as much landscape as architecture and thus fosters public awareness and engagement with the arts. Generous windows at street level provide the public a glimpse of the scenery workshop activities. The building still finds an audience with public who are not opera, ballet or orchestra fans. The cafes and gift shop, with their access to the waterfront are destinations which offer opportunities to generate revenue for the institution while providing a general public amenity. Care was taken with the design of these components so that they are seamlessly integrated into the overall character of the building’s bold design.
