Het Kielzog Cultural and Municipal Complex in Hoogezand, The Netherlands by De Zwarte Hond

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: De Zwarte Hond 

The Municipality of Hoogezand-Sappemeer has been given a single, prominent, public building in which a theatre, an arts centre, a library and the town hall are accommodated. In the dynamic heart of this Dutch municipality citizens are served a wide palette of services, information, education, culture and recreation. Existing elements, such as the theatre auditorium, dating back to the 1980s, are re-used in the new development. The adjacent town hall, at the moment still in an outdated state, will ultimately undergo a complete transformation. In the meantime the existing premises and the new build function as a single entity. The connecting, central street forms a temporary solution to the gaps in the present infrastructure. Both in terms of use, as well as technological exploitation and urban design, the new central building has great advantages for Hoogezand-Sappemeer.

Article source: nARCHITECTS

nARCHITECTS has won the 1st prize (Concept Design) in the 2016 International Young Architects Design Competition for the 110,000m2 Shanghai Library East Hall. The competition, which generated over 200 entries, was held by Shanghai Pudong New Area People’s Government, aimed at enhancing Shanghai’s unique cultural influence and promoting qualities of public lives. The library proposal entitled “Library as Home” envisions a library that feels like a large house for all, with a rich variety of environments that Shanghai’s citizens could appropriate as their own. As such, our design is inspired by the intimate connections between people, media and nature in libraries of the ancient world.

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.
