Norwegian Mountaineering Center in Møre og Romsdal, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The Norwegian Mountaineering Center is anchored in an innovative interpretation of nature’s fantastic dimensions and the dramatic experience of mountaineering. The design of the building is based on its function as a mountaineering center and gathering place for both locals and visitors. This provides the structure with a characteristic volume communicating its contents with exciting and unique geometrical expression. Its outer skin is clad in a uniform surface, highlighting its originality and situation next to the train tracks of Raumabanen and the station area in the Åndalsnes town center.

Mediatheque in Carballo, Spain by Oscar Pedros Architects

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Oscar Pedros Architects

“Thinking on a 21th. Century library -as a friend of mine would say-, is like wondering about a book´s cemetery”. At that point, all efforts must conciliate architectonic non-variable values as sequence, promenade and staying with immateriality brought by new technologies. There is no other solution than sharing jealously material space with virtuality to avoid Carballo´s newest building ending as book warehouse.

KuBe House of Culture and Movement in Frederiksberg, Denmark by MVRDV and ADEPT

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

Article source: MVRDV

Today Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark will open the Ku.Be House of Culture and Movement, an activity hub in Frederiksberg, Denmark, which explores the boundaries between culture, health and movement. The project, designed by MVRDV and ADEPT, is the first of its typology; a community space which also focuses on exploring and developing our most fundamental process, movement. Ku.Be facilitates both fixed, and spontaneous programmes. Main volumes define specific tempos of activities, whereas voids are left without a defined use to let users interpret them how they wish and discover new ways to use and get around the building. The activity from inside then spills out into the community as a garden which will offer a variety of interactive environments.

Torre Del Borgo in Villa d’Adda, Italy by CN10architetti

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

Article source: CN10architetti

Torre del Borgo is one of the most famous fortified buildings in the history of Bergamo. The powerful and accurate quality of the medieval walls, the integrity of the fortified structure, the central position in the village, give to this artifact the most complete sense of monument. The restoration project has dealt with different aspects that conditioned the conservation, the use and the valorisation of the building: the structural instability of the walls and floors, the lack of an adequate system of connection between plans, the total absence of plant networks, degradation and precariousness of internal and external stone facings, lack of windows and adequate interior finishes, on floors and walls. The entire work has developed pursuing a dual purpose, first identifying solutions to the problems of degradation, second offering an architectonic and functional reinterpretation of the building. The project is designed to be made into two functional lots of action: with the completion of Lot 1, are now fully accessible the four halls of the central tower and the spaces of the new building C intended to services and distribution. An important intervention is certainly the inclusion of the new system of ramps and walkways, made entirely with an iron structure, which is articulated between the spaces of the central tower and the new building, connecting the various levels of the complex. Lot 2 will include the redevelopment of public space in Piazza del Borgo with the creation of a large area covered and protected to the road, in direct continuity with the new pavement of the square. With the completion of the restoration project, Torre del Borgo will be able to accomodate the Public Library of Villa d’Adda.

A new addition, located adjacent to the library, adds a glassy 2,000 square foot welcome center that gives the library a more civic presence on the street while providing new front door to the College along Bedford Avenue.
