Collection Building is an art depot open to the public. A public route zigzags through the building, from the lobby on the ground floor where a café can be found up to an exhibition space, sculpture garden and restaurant on the roof. On the way up the route passes along and through art depots and restoration workshops. In depots visible from the route, the exhibition can be changed on a daily basis by simply moving storage racks so each visit to the building can offer a unique experience. On three floors the route passes through exhibition spaces which will be programmed by Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.

On the north edge of Shanghai city, an isolated wetland of about 10 hectares has remained undisturbed for several decades. Now it becomes a nature reserve and a part of the park system of New Jiangwan City, a new town developed around the wetland. Since the fragile ecological system can only afford guided tours of small groups, it is necessary to establish an exhibition observation center at its west side for the public to use. In the architect’s long-term plan, two elevated walkways will radiate from the Center into the reserve so the entire area will be accessible to the public.

Sky Courts Exhibition Hall, located in the International Intangible Culture Park in Chengdu China, utilizes the internalized strategy of the traditional Chinese courtyard house to create a variety of aggregated exhibition galleries within one building. Broken up into a series of variably scaled halls wrapped around seven courtyards, the structure creates a range of open spaces inside the deep floor plan. This ‘packed’ and ‘wrapped’ internalized organization has both spatial as well as environmental benefits to the building.

FROZEN TIME CITIZEN IN BASELWORLD
‘Frozen time’ has been presented for a Japanese watch brand CITIZEN in Baselworld which is the largest watch and jewel industry exhibition in the world. In this year, the main exhibition hall has been fully renewed, therefore all the brands are intended to express their next 4 year’s vision. In order to conceive their brand identity almost all the brands has designed a fully new booth for this year’s exhibition. CITIZEN as a Japanese watchmaker took their approach to represent their brand identity differently in this context. Instead of just renewing entire booth for next 4 years, they have reserved a large reception space to be opened and to present an installation for CITIZEN every year as space to evolve and to express their fundamental identity of ‘Challenging sprits’.
