Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008 in London, United Kingdom by Gehry Partners, LLP

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Gehry Partners, LLP

This temporary pavilion, the 2008 contribution to the Serpentine Gallery’s Pavilion series, is situated beside the museum on the grounds of Kensington Gardens in London.  The 418 square meter pavilion is designed as a wooden timber structure which acts as an urban street connecting the park with the permanent gallery building. Inside the pavilion, glass canopies are hung from the wooden and steel structure to protect the interior space from inclement weather and provide shade on sunny days. The pavilion is much like an amphitheater, designed to serve as a place for live performances of music and art, as well as a setting for visitors to gather and relax.

The Secular Retreat in South Devon by Peter Zumthor

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

A space dedicated to calm, reflection and perspective, The Secular Retreat is a veritable haven from the pressures of modern life.

In South Devon, between the resorts of Salcombe and Hallsands, lies a landscape of rolling hills, wooded river valleys, patchwork fields and small stone villages. It is here that Zumthor is designing his first project in the UK – The Secular Retreat, a hill-top retreat, where people will be able to go for periods of sustained work and reflection.

This project is a contemporary interpretation of the architecture of the 16th-century courtyard of the State University of Milan,translated and transformed from rigid Cartesian geometries into the linear fluidity of dynamic space. Adapting to the natural contours of the courtyard and the forces that converge towards its center, the project emphasizes the slope of the arches, creating a powerful vortex of spatial distortion that favors dialogue with the surrounding colonnade.

The 52,000 m2 extension of Herlev Hospital will comprise a new emergency department and maternity services centre, including a pediatrics unit and maternity ward, among others.

The winning project consists of three circular buildings placed on rectangular bases – which are displaced from each other creating a number of inviting outdoor spaces. The new extension thus constitutes a down-scaled and compressed contrast to the 120 metre high rectangular geometry of the existing hospital.

The new hospital in Herlev, Denmark, will open in 2017

London Aquatic Centre in London, UK by Zaha Hadid Architects

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

More projects by Zaha Hadid

The architectural concept of the London Aquatic Centre is inspired by the fluid geometry of water in motion, creating spaces and a surrounding environment in sympathy with the river landscape of the Olympic Park.  An undulating roof sweeps up from the ground as a wave – enclosing the pools of the Centre with its unifying gesture of fluidity, whilst also describing the volume of the swimming and diving pools.

CMA CGM TOWER in Marseille, France by Zaha Hadid Architects

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

More projects by Zaha Hadid

The tower stands at the center of the city’s ambitious regeneration project, Euroméditerranée, located 1km north of the historic center, adjacent to the commercial port.

The site lies 100m back from the sea edge where the elevated motorway viaduct separates as it arrives into the north of the city. At ground level the site is dominated by the sweeping concrete viaducts overhead and the rhythmic colonnades of their supporting columns. It’s dense and noisy but a rich physical context. At high level, the context is the spectacular views over the bay of Marseille, the city and the docks.

Riverside Museum in Glasgow, Scotland by Zaha Hadid Architects

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

More projects by Zaha Hadid

The historical development of the Clyde and the city is a unique legacy; with the site situated where the Kelvin flows into the Clyde the building can flow from the city to the river. In doing so it can symbolise a dynamic relationship where the museum is the voice of both, linking the two sides and allowing the museum to be the transition from one to the other. By doing so the museum places itself in the very context of its origin and encourages connectivity between its exhibits and their wider context.

Beekman Tower (8 Spruce Street) in New York by Frank Gehry

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

8 Spruce Street, originally known as Beekman Tower and currently marketed as New York by Gehry, is a 76-story skyscraper designed by architect Frank Gehry in the New York City borough of Manhattan at 8 Spruce Street, just south of City Hall Plaza and the Brooklyn Bridge.

At 870 feet tall, New York by Gehry is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and a singular addition to the iconic Manhattan skyline. For his first residential commission in New York City, master architect Frank Gehry has reinterpreted the design language of the classic Manhattan high-rise with undulating waves of stainless steel that reflect the changing light, transforming the appearance of the building throughout the day. Gehry’s distinctive aesthetic is carried across the interior residential and amenity spaces with custom furnishings and installations.
