Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Article source: Aranguren & Gallegos Arquitectos SL


The building of The New Parador is the result of a long team process originating from the initiative of Paradores de Turismo to organize a contest that convened a selected group of Spanish architectural offices.

Paradores de Turismo searches for an emblematic architectural solution in a difficult and delicate location such as The Old Complex of El Colegio de Santo Tomás. Dating from the 16th century, the Complex was in use (lastly as a female penitentiary) until very recently, when it was destroyed by fire and abandoned.

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects

Urban development block with a high rise for office, hotel, wellness and commercial use

In a three-level peer review process that resulted in two first-prize winners, an urban planning concept was developed for the area of what was once the post office on Erkrather Strasse. The so-called “Quartier M” is to serve as the future link between the Hauptbahnhof central station and Tanzhaus NRW/Capitol, becoming a lively city quarter for living and working. In addition to offices and a hotel, the trend-setting urban design also provides for both privately financed and government subsidized public housing.

Other plans include space for a day care center for children and service providers for the quarter.

Article source: Emre Arolat Architects

The architectural artifacts discovered in an excavation in Antakya near St. Pierre Church (an important Christian pilgrimage site;) directed the employer formerly planning to build a five-star hotel, to building a museum-hotel on the site. The dichotomy between the public program of the archeological park and the private use of the hotel becomes a major input in the design process.
