Article source: KTX archiLAB 

Toshin Satellite Preparatory schools gained considerable place in the Japanese cram schools business despite being subject to a strong competition. This development is mostly due to the perpetual seeking of space renewal and services improvements

For its location in Kawanishi, the school needed new reception, consultation and conference spaces in order to be more attractive and provide better accessibility to both subscribed and prospective students.

MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology in Lisbon, Portugal by AL_A

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: AL_A 

MAAT, the new Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, is an outward-looking museum located on the banks of the Tagus in Belém, the district from where the Portuguese great explorers set off. Proposing a new relationship with the river and the wider world, the kunsthalle is a powerful yet sensitive and low-slung building that explores the convergence of contemporary art, architecture and technology.

The new building is the centrepiece of EDP Foundation’s masterplan for an art campus that includes the repurposed Central Tejo power station.

National library of Lithuania in Vilnius by 2XJ Architects

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: 2XJ Architects

The new interior design for the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania was created in the context of the renovation of the building which was originally constructed in 1963.  Many elements including interior spaces, plan structure, interior elements and finishing materials are protected by strict heritage regulations. Therefore the interior spaces essentially were left intact, many interior elements and materials were restored or recreated. Many new functions were introduced within the existing spaces on the six floors of the building. New functional zones include few hundred working spaces for visitors, spaces for co-working, coffee shops, conference room, gallery, recording studio, cinema room, arts incubator, daycare centre and more. A lot of attention was dedicated to the aesthetic solutions highlighting the relation between “the old“ and “the new“. The aim was to make a clear distinction rather than moderating between the two. A modern homogeneous structure of black furniture and other interior elements was created, which forms a new identity for the library. The modular furniture system is minimalist in style, pretentious forms were avoided. Some of the elements were as large as 6 meter in height corresponding to the large scale of interior spaces.

TREC – Training Recreation Education Center in Newark, New Jersey by ikon.5 architects

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The City of Newark has long struggled to come back from the brink since losing its industrial base in the 1950s, which resulted in decreased city revenue, increased unemployment, deplorable housing conditions and ultimately fueled the 1967 riots. Since that time, the city has attempted several “comebacks” floating a host of broad-brush proposals for renewal many of which failed. Today cities are trying a different tact, finding seeds of hope and renewal in incremental rather than sweeping-change, embarking on small scaled, targeted projects led by architects capable of bringing to these ‘wicked problems’ fresh ideas and innovative approaches in the hope of jumpstarting communities in need.

Óscar Romerocollege in Dendermonde, Belgium by De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

The south side of the Óscar Romerocollege borders on the historical inner city of Dendermonde. The patchwork sequence of courtyards and streets is typical of this location. Two college buildings have already been built. A further two buildings – a tuition building and a sports complex – will be added and are intended to strengthen the school’s identity. We have extended this objective to include a connection to the historic centre. A connection that has been created by blending into the structure of the public spaces. The existing courtyards have been extended to include two new courtyards and a promenade. The four school buildings, each of which has its own individual appearance, create a powerful rhythm on the north side. This is where the main entrance is located. A covered path connects the existing and new buildings and takes the students past the different courtyards, each of which has its own function and identity.

Article source: Studio Gang Architects 

Historically, convening for social justice has taken place in informal settings—a church basement, a living room, or even around a kitchen table.

The Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership brings these discussions up from the basement and squarely into public consciousness.
