The symbolic dimension of the International city of tapestry and woven art matches its ambition: going beyond conservation and exhibitions, preserving a living savoir-faire that is recognized by UNESCO as part of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity, and reestablishing Aubusson’s place in the contemporary creative landscape.

The project expands the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, built in 1876, and is also meant to be a conceptual renewal. The open configuration of buildings produces a sequence of transitory connecting spaces between the park and urban spaces. Main elements are the glass facade, the gate to the Academy, the inner court, and the studio terraces.

The project for a 10 000m2 adult education centre, located in the south-west of Morocco in a harsh and isolated area, aspires to create a robust world class education facility that will give generously to its community.
SITE STRATEGY: LESS IS MORE
Although the given site is quite large, the building occupies half of it in order to create a compact and introverted building, with a humble and simple exterior leading into a rich dynamic internal courtyard – drawing reference to the traditional “Medersa”( first universities) for its social, cultural and climatic ingenuity.

The newly build multifunctional accommodation (MFA) Zichtwei is the closing piece of the education campus in Barendrecht (just South of Rotterdam). The term MFA is commonly used in The Netherlands for a combination of occupants sharing one multi-functional building. In the MFA Zichtwei two schools are sharing the available class rooms, a sports hall is included and a youth center occupies offices and an event space. The sports hall is daily occupied by the school and can also be used by neighborhood associations during evenings as a separate entrance is designed.

Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and Technologies consists of four departments, classrooms, lecture rooms, laboratories and social facilities. The project aims to unite theoretical and practical education via its architectural approach by interweaving the buildings and the applied agricultural land into each other. Agricultural landscape continues throughout the building and unites indoor and outdoor areas. Students not only work in laboratories for practical education, but they also work on land with seeds and seedlings for various researches. This approach defines landscape as a crucial part of daily life in the faculty and places the buildings around a courtyard as its core. While the landscape enables experimental agriculture, it also allows different plants in different seasons to become landscape elements for the building. The courtyard, while maximizing the natural ventilation and lighting, also becomes a social gathering space for students.

Hong Kong based architecture studio Cheungvogl has designed NEW AARCH, the New Architecture School of Aarhus as a two-storey building that provides active workshops and public exhibitions on the ground level. The upper level accommodates theoretical work and quiet reading and working areas.
The NEW AARCH reuses the existing buildings as a new social hub to connect the public with the school over food, exhibitions and events. The design integrates the existing buildings and offers them a new lease of life by transforming the former Institut for (X) and the northern buildings into cafes, bookstore and meeting spaces. The existing buildings intersect with the public central exhibition spaces of the NEW AARCH, forming a new cultural and social center that connects the public life of the campus with the Godsbanen.

Macdonald had been a gigantic distribution center since the 1970s, located at Macdonald Street in Paris. OMA was the master planner of the project and their proposal was rather distinctive. They preserved the old two-storied building (which extends as long as 500m), and asked 5 other architects to work on newly added programs. We were responsible for the western part of the building, and designed facilities for a junior and senior high schools, and local sports center.
