Prague National Gallery Entrance Hall in Hradcanske Square, Prague, Czech Republic by Mateo Arquitectura

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Mateo Arquitectura

In the grounds of Prague Castle, among various palaces currently reused to house the National Gallery, the brief was to design a small building that provides an entrance to the museum complex. Two parallel surfaces organize what used to be an empty space without weighing it down: one forms the floor, the other the roof.

A Circle in a Square in Niigata prefecture, Japan by Binocle

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: Binocle

Novalis noted that “The curve is the triumph of the freedom on the rule”, Giovanni Lindo Ferretti used to sing that “Straightness is for hastiness” and Oscar Niemeyer kept on explaining: “It is not the right angle that attracts me. Nor the straight line, tough, inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free, sensual curve. The curve I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the waves of the sea, in the clouds of the sky, in the body of the favorite woman. Of curves is made all the universe.”

Located in the densely populated gallery neighborhood of Chelsea in Manhattan, the Paul Kasmin Gallery seeks to create a new dialogue between pedestrian, visitor, and art.  The design of the gallery creates a clean open space connecting the street to the inside.  The gallery features a floor to ceiling glass façade, allowing over sized pieces of art to be delivered.  The interior space benefits from a large skylight, flooding the space with natural light.

Daeyang Gallery and House in Seoul, Korea by Steven Holl Architects

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Article source: Steven Holl Architects

The private gallery and house is sited in the hills of the Kangbuk section of Seoul, Korea. The project was designed as an experiment parallel to a research studio on “the architectonics of music”. The basic geometry of the building is inspired by a 1967 sketch for a music score by the composer Istvan Anhalt, “Symphony of Modules,” which was discovered in a book by John Cage titled “Notations.”
Three pavilions; one for entry, one residence, and one event space, appear to push upward from a continuous gallery level below. A sheet of water establishes the plane of reference from above and below.

Inside Fashion Store in Vienna, Austria by Söhne & Partner Architects

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Article source: Söhne & Partner Architects

A 100m² shop presents fashion in a discreet but appealing way.

It was the designer’s intention to create a restrained and straight room in order to make it an eye-catcher for the Neubaugasse in Vienna. Thus, people who are passing by should be guided into the store. The colour turquoise directs the customers through the shop while the interior is mainly white and sober in order to present the fashion at the best. Big mirror surfaces make the room seemingly bigger.
