As the central piece of architecture for the Guanggu Bio-lake campus, this reception center houses exhibition space, conference rooms and administration offices.
The building sits between a main plaza and central lake. In a comparatively small piece of land, the architecture seeks to have a strong symbolic character. In order to increase the overall impact of the architecture, the mass is treated as a sculpture in shape and texture. This site is surrounded by buildings with varying viewpoints of the main project. The multi-faceted box produces a façade of ever-changing viewpoints.

Brunner uses the occasion of the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair to present two new products: its ‘hoc’ stool and its ‘plot’ modular seating system. Ippolito Fleitz Group was commissioned once again to create a setting resembling an installation, an intense spatial experience in which to showcase Brunner’s new products. From a distance, the strictly black and white backdrop takes a back seat to the colourful seating objects, which draw visitors in to try them out. At closer look, the black and white backdrop transforms itself into a textual world, taking visitors on a poetic voyage of discovery, inspiring them to stop and tarry awhile.

META-Project has completed the Huludao Beach Exhibit Center, a project which re-established the relationship between the cultural activities and it’s natural environment.
Previous a fishing village protected by the surrounding hills, a river running though the center, the Dragon Bay is the essence of Northeast-Chinese coastal idyll. Yet still scattered with fishing boats and nets, now it is facing the city’s upcoming development: situated on the west coast of Bohai Sea rim, with only 3 hours of traffic from Beijing, the site offers a natural resource that is so rare across the north of china due to its climate – “the beach”, which attracts tens of millions of people from Beijing and Northeast-China to spend their summer here. As the first building on the beach, META-Project’s Exhibit Center will vitalize the Dragon Bay into a new resort and residential hub for the Liaoning Province of China.

La Vitrine Culturelle is located in the heart of Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles theatre district–an area known as a showcase for pioneering uses of multimedia technologies. After winning several awards for its interactive LED facade at La Vitrine’s former information centre at the Place-des-Arts, La Vitrine once again asked Moment Factory to push the boundaries of multimedia environments for their new and highly-visible location at the corner of Saint-Laurent and Sainte-Catherine. Moment Factory created an artistic installation that represents the effervescence of the city’s culture of design and innovation, while doubling as an informative and interactive medium.

In order to avoid the bilboquet form inherent to most observation structures of this height, the proposed building is conceived as a continuous segment whose middle part is made thicker by a knot. The resulting symbolic shape expresses the idea that the total length of the tower is in fact even longer than the regulated maximum height of 450 meters which it reaches at its summit. Alternately, the space created by the knot shape turns out to conveniently provide viewers with a three-dimensional panoramic experience of the city of Incheon, as a continuous indoor and outdoor balcony.

- Location: Incheon, South Korea
- Collaborator: Janko Radojevic
- Program: observation tower + exhibition hall + leisure facilities

Located in the west south suburb of Beijing, the site of the exhibition park for the 9th China (Beijing) International Garden Expo in 2013 is in natural surroundings close to mountain, river, and wetland. As a response in design, Atelier 11’s proposal for the main pavilion of the Expo aims to create an artificial landscape, rather than a manmade construction, to echo the park’s site condition and the Expo’s particular theme.

The premise of the project entitled “1:1”, exhibited in the Romanian Pavilion from Giardini di Castello, is a radical one: architecture as translation of a unique idea, ultimately determining and defining the space we inhabit. The concept is to “exhibit space” and, by doing so, to explore its various instances. A precise and quantifiable fact is related to the idea of “space”: 94.4 m2 person is the population density level in Bucharest. This is a specific and local relation that represents the urban condition in Romania. It illustrates, at the same time, both an individual and a collective state of existence.
