Windhover Contemplative Center in California by Aidlin Darling Design

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Article source: v2com

The Windhover Contemplative Center was named a finalist in the 4th Annual Architizer A+Awards in the Cultural: Religious Buildings & Memorials category.  This year’s awards, honoring the best architecture, spaces, and products from across the globe, received thousands of entries from more than 95 countries.

The Windhover Contemplative Center, designed by Aidlin Darling Design, is a spiritual retreat on the Stanford campus to promote and inspire personal renewal. Using Nathan Oliveira’s meditative Windhover paintings as a vehicle, the center provides a refuge from the intensity of daily life.  It is intended for quiet reflection throughout the day for any Stanford student, faculty, or staff member, as well as for members of the larger community.

Baltic Way Memorial in LATVIA, RIGA by Selim Senin

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: Selim Senin 

The main specialty of Baltic Way is togetherness. To reflect this idea on the project, spaces where people can spend time together, talk to each other, enjoy the scenery, make sportive activities, make presentations, and watch movies at night, etc. have been adopted. Our proposal is not merely a library to enter but a platform on which urban life keeps continuing thus a building which integrates with the city.

Bologna Shoah Memorial in Italy by SET Architects

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Article source: SET Architects

The definition of memory is essential when we talk about a memorial: it is a monument of the remembrance of people and events and at the same time it represents a universal message directed to the collective consciousness. A space that doesn’t allow you to forget, that in our competition, becomes the acknowledgment of the Shoah: a massive genocide during the Second World War.

Memorial at Utøya, Norway by 3RW Arkitekter

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

Article source: 3RW Arkitekter

When a big tree in the forest dies, an organic process that creates what we know as a clearing begins – open room in the otherwise dense forest. We want to develop the memorial on Utøya as such a clearing; forming a clear spot and highlight all the beautiful landscape qualities that are already in place and in contact with the surrounding environment.

New Farewell Space For The Deceased in Bergamo, Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects

A brand new contemporary space for the farewell of the deceased rests regally between meadows and trees similar to austere and silent presences. A pure parallelepiped volume, covered in white rough plaster, seems like levitating in mid-air, rising light and free from the ground.

Qatar World Cup Memorial by 1week1project

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source: 1week1project

“More than 400 Nepalese migrant workers have died on Qatar’s building sites as the Gulf state prepares to host the World Cup in 2022.

The grim statistic comes from the Pravasi Nepali Co-ordination Committee, a respected human rights organisation which compiles lists of the dead using official sources in Doha. It will pile new pressure on the Qatari authorities – and on football’s world governing body, Fifa – to curb a mounting death toll that some are warning could hit 4,000 by the time the 2022 finals take place.15 February
