Discovering Taiwan is a permanent exhibition dedicated to the History of the collections of the National Taiwan Museum, the History of the Natural and Aboriginal Treasures of Taiwan, and the History of Japanese Researchers who built this institution one century ago. The exhibition scenography links this past to the future by questioning the prospect of cultural heritage through 367 pieces including 265 of the most important pieces from the Museum’s collection, facing sculptural, video and sound installations created by contemporary Taiwanese artists.
This art space takes the metaphysical blank space in abstract paintings by contemporary Chinese artists as its starting point. It uses natural light, simple black strokes and translucent materials to create a fuzzy, dream-like physical realm. The project is located within Beijing’s 798 Arts District, as a renovation of a former factory, originally build in the 1970’s during Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward.
This project is a exhibition pavilion supported by Longfor Real Estate and Orient Sundar windows company, within which the sustainable architecture strategies and the edge-cutting building techniques could be introduced to the public.
The exhibition project conceived by Migliore+Servetto Architects for “Steve Jobs o visionàrio” exhibition, created and produced by Fullbrand at the Pier Mauà in Rio de Janeiro and then at the MIS in San Paolo, builds a path of knolewdge structured in narrative cells which allow the visitor from time to time to establish a new relationship with the contents of the exhibition.
Vanke Tianfu Cloud City, designed by Aedas, is a prime mixed-use development in Chengdu comprising office, exhibition, hotel, residential, retail and market facilities. Situated within the Tianfu new development zone which is designated for hi-tech and sci-tech industries and in close proximity to Xinglong Lake, the project design is inspired by tech cloud.
The project was developed after winning the tender by invitation held by Coima for the realization of amenities in the building Diamantino, which is part of the new development of Porta Nuova in Milan.
The theme of this exhibition was the artistic work of the portuguese King Fernando II (1816-1885). He was very dedicated to value the arts in general and he had an abundant personal artistic production, in the areas of drawing, engraving and decorative arts. The exhibition was installed in the Pena palace in Sintra, summer residence of the King, as an extra zone of the normal visit to the palace. The objective was to develop an installation that continued the romantic and intimate language of the palace. The intervention values the original space presenting an combination of furniture and color coherent with palace visual language. All the technical installations are hidden. The exhibition presents drawings, engravings an objects mounted in wall frames and showcases, all designed specially for the exhibition and inspired in the romantic language of the palace. The furniture design, the color and the graphic communication intend to create a very intimate mood, deeply connected to the king’s character.
The exhibition catalog was designed like a personal notebook of the king, presenting its sketches.
Cultural Center La Gota is a hybrid building for exhibition spaces that aims to create a new focus of urban centrality in Navalmoral (Cáceres), showcasing the identity of the town. The etymology is rooted in an old building built in the same site, in the thirties, to solve the problems of child malnutrition through the “Drop of Milk”.
The global housing deficit can be measured in the scale of billions. Two opposite approaches can be seen tackling this issue of such magnitude and scale: an inefficient approach and an efficient approach. An inefficient construction system is labor intensive, and this means that, from a political point of view, using as large a work force as possible will keep unemployment rates low, which is just as important as reducing the housing shortage. At the same time, there will be a need for approaches using very efficient prefabricated constructions able to respond quickly and accountably in terms of technical quality to an ever increasing housing demand.
In the exhibition area, the “rational and mechanical” modular scaffolding system conducts a dialogue with the life force of the dinosaurs that is “primal and organic”. While the rough scaffolding balances out the dinosaur’s gigantic scope, the gradient of the lighting, which seems to breathe, creates a spatial concept that is contrasting yet harmonious between the cold, blue-light scaffolding and the warm, yellow-light dinosaurs. The exhibition area is like a cloud in the space, fusing with the dinosaur to become one being.
