Phase II of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum is conceived of as a natural extension of the original museum designed by Gehry Partners in 1993.
Phase II provides an additional 8,553 square feet of exhibition space on the north and east sides of the existing building.
On the southeast corner of the existing building, new gallery space is articulated as three rectangular volumes clad in the same brick as that used on the existing building. The new gallery space will provide the museum with space appropriate for the exhibition of works on paper, American art, and ceramics while animating the east side of the building that faces Coffman Memorial Plaza. These new galleries provide different scales and spatial relationships than the existing galleries, offering the museum increased flexibility in the planning of exhibitions.

The Pierre Lassonde Pavilion—the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec’s fourth building is interconnected yet disparate—is a subtly ambitious, even stealthy, addition to the city. Rather than creating an iconic imposition, it forms new links between the park and the city, and brings coherence to the MNBAQ.

The project area is located in the outskirts of Villafranca and Verona, between the urban core and the agricultural land.
The more distinctive presence is the “strada della Rizza” around which is structured the small village Rizza, that’s a quite busy output axis of Verona.
The new building is designed as a reconstruction and expansion of a previously existing one lying parallel to the “strada della Rizza” and looks like an inhabited wall that protects the school from the nearby road. For this reason, it present a 3,5m high basement in concrete without any window that look like an infrastructure’s construction.

SEFAR® VISION fabric, laminated into the exterior glass façade of a new terminal at Keflavik International Airport in Iceland, adds a striking and sustainable element to the country’s growing transportation hub.
In 2016, the airport saw nearly seven million passengers, almost double what it saw in 2014. As a result, a new 4,700-square-meter terminal was built to service additional passengers to and from aircraft.
