UniCredit Pavilion in Milano, Italy by architetto Michele De Lucchi Srl

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: architetto Michele De Lucchi Srl 

UniCredit has erected a multipurpose building to house the bank’s general meetings, but also exhibitions and cultural events open to the Milan public. It occupies a privileged position against the background of Porta Nuova, beneath the mirror-glazed tower and in a dialogue with the Porta Nuova public gardens. UniCredit Pavilion has no foundations, being constructed on a reinforced concrete podium above the parking facility. Its soft profile is inspired by the shape of a seed, and its materials are natural. A vertically ribbed cage with lamellar larch beams contains a glazed space and supports a rounded, solar panelled roof. The structure opens on the outside through two large wings, equipped with monitors for events open to the general public. Situated on the ground floor is a multipurpose auditorium adaptable to diverse configurations and with seating for 700. An overhead walkway runs along the outer edge of the building and can be used for temporary art exhibitions. On the first floor is a nursery for 50 toddlers, whilst the top level is occupied by a lounge for customer reception and corporate events.

The ‘House of Delft’ Mixed-Use Hub in The Netherlands by Van Dongen – Koschuch Architects and Planners

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: Van Dongen – Koschuch Architects and Planners

Delft, city of innovation in the Netherlands

The entire world knows Delft from Delft Blue pottery and the painter Johannes Vermeer. But there is more to Delft. Delft is a city of innovation and pioneers. Making the impossible possible is in the DNA of Delft. It has been for centuries, from the first beer brewers who innovated with water management in the 14th century. A couple of centuries later, Hugo de Groot created modern international public law and Antoni Van Leeuwenhoek invented the microscope. And recently, Boyan Slat, a student at the Delft University of Technology, surprised the world with the Ocean Cleanup, a solution for ridding the oceans of the ‘plastic soup’.

The outer shell combines glass, ceramics, and aluminium, with colours ceramic tiles reflecting those of the interior: red of the Auditorium Hall, graphite of Theatre Hall, white of the foyer, and the silvery aluminum used for the roof.
