Umeå School of Architecture in Umeå, Sweden by Henning Larsen Architects

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects
More projects by Henning Larsen Architects

Umeå School of Architecture has a unique location by Umeå River. With its interior landscape of open floor levels and sculpturally shaped stairs, the building has a strong artistic expression. As a growth centre for future architecture, the main function of the building is to provide the framework for inspiration and innovation. From the outside, the building has a cubic expression with its larch facades and square windows placed in a vibrant, rhythmic sequence on all sides. The interior space of the building is designed as a dynamic sequence of stairs and split, open floor levels where abstract, white boxes hang freely from the ceiling filtering the light coming in through the high skylights.

Dongdaemun Design Park and Plaza, Seoul, Korea by Zaha Hadid Architects

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

More projects by Zaha Hadid

The 85,000 square metre Dongdaemun Design Plaza establishes a learning resource for designers and members of the public with a design museum, library and educational facilities, whilst the 30,000 square metre Park creates a green oasis within the dense urban surroundings of Dongdaemun, Seoul. The form of the Dongdaemun Design Plaza and Park revolves around the ancient city wall, which forms the central element of the composition, creating a continuous landscape that physically links the park and plaza together. The fl uid language of the design, by inference and analogy, acts as a catalyst by promoting fl uid thinking and interaction across all the design disciplines, whilst also encouraging the greatest degree of interaction between the activities of the Plaza and the public.

Vitra Fire Station in Weil am Rhein, Germany by Zaha Hadid

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

More projects by Zaha Hadid

We initiated our design with a study of the overall factory site. Our intention was to place the elements of our commission in such a way that they would not be lost between the enormous factory sheds. We also used these elements to structure the whole site, giving identity and rhythm to the main street running through the complex. This street – which stretches from the chair museum to the other end of the factory site, where the fire station is now located, was envisaged as a linear landscaped zone, almost as if it were the artificial extension of the linear patterns of the adjacent agricultural fields and vineyards. Thus, rather than designing the building as an isolated object, it was developed as the outer edge of the landscaped zone: defining space rather than occupying space. This was achieved by stretching the programme into a long, narrow building alongside the street which marks the edge of the factory site, and which also functions as a screening device against the bordering buildings.

Batumi Aquarium in The Republic of Georgia by Henning Larsen

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects
More projects by Henning Larsen Architects

Henning Larsen Architects’ proposal for Batumi Aquarium is inspired by the characteristic pebbles of the Batumi beach – shaped by sea currents through millennia. The building stands out as an iconic rock formation visible from both land and sea. The formation constitutes four self-supporting exhibition areas with each stone representing a unique marine biotype – the Aegean Sea & the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Black Sea & the Red Sea and finally the more interactive exhibition space for teaching and “edutainment”.
