The new headquarters of the ICA MIAMI Foundation emerges with the desire to be an international artistic reference and an icon of Miami´s cultural offer. The museum offers itself to the city, and is conceived within the dispersed urbanism of the “Miami Design District” as a luminous cubic volume, as a “Magic Box”, a “Boite à Miracle”, open on its two north and south fronts through two perforated and reflective facades.
The program of an institution such as the ICA Miami is already an attractive announcement, but why deprive the spaces that host it of a certain degree of seduction?

“Kokillen” is a black iron imprint formed by the site and program molded in a volume that relates to the situation and public space surrounding it. It’s also a building that tells a story about the reason why there is a city in the first place. That’s a story starting with one material – the extraction of iron.
”Kokillen” Ekomuseum, is assembling 60 heritage sites in Bergslagen Sweden in a new Iron Industry museum. One of the sites, The Engelsberg ironworks, is considered to be one of the finest industrial monuments in the world, and was added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 1993. The sites include wooden manor, parks, smelting houses, blast furnace, forges, hammers, waterwheels, rapids, pig iron and bar iron production.

Reset Architecture transforms a barn at a historical estate into a museum.
This project addresses a current theme of the changing countryside that is no longer mainly used for agriculture. Within this context of change the intention of this project originated from preservation; sharing the past of a beautiful location. The architecture of this adaptive reuse project does not react to history in a nostalgic or thematic way, it uses a more context sensitive approach. The interior has changed to a level in which the old and new merge but still are, without hierarchy, visually present. As a result the new setting evokes a self-evident presence that relates to the characteristics of the natural scenery.

Cultural Center La Gota is a hybrid building for exhibition spaces that aims to create a new focus of urban centrality in Navalmoral (Cáceres), showcasing the identity of the town. The etymology is rooted in an old building built in the same site, in the thirties, to solve the problems of child malnutrition through the “Drop of Milk”.

The Exhibition Road Quarter, designed by AL_A, is the largest construction project undertaken by the V&A since its main buildings in South Kensington were completed in 1909 under the direction of Sir Aston Webb. The project has transformed the former boiler house yard on London’s great cultural artery, Exhibition Road, to create a sequence of major new spaces that will redefine the V&A’s relationship with the street and the public:

Lahdelma & Mahalmäki Architects have unveiled Requiem, their competition proposal for the Museum for the Defense and Siege of Leningrad, St. Petersburg. The project was undertaken in partnership with Ralph Appelbaum Associates who, together, formed the only international team amongst the four final designs. The design sees an elegant spiral, buried in the landscape, reaching up from the exhibitions which are buried in a vast cavern underground. The route corkscrews out the top of the riverside, reaching outwards to give views over the new St. Petersburg.

Historically the port of Sète owes its existence to Louis XIV (1666) who decided to create an outlet to the sea from the Canal du Midi. Associated for a long time with the wine trade, today it serves as a port for the whole of southern France. Like other Mediterranean sites, Sète is in an important position for the French Research Institution for the exploitation of the sea (IFREMER), a major player in scientific and maritime technology and much acclaimed worldwide. At the beginning of the year 2000 the branch of this institution in Sète set up on the edge of Etang de Thau leaving the old building to the mercy of graffiti.

The Arne Haugen Sørensen Museum is now officially open. An inviting pavilion in close connection to the surrounding nature. The building is an extension to Vestjyllands Kunstpavillon in Videbæk, Denmark.
A donation of 70 works of art from the Danish artist Arne Haugen Sørensen made it possible for Vestjyllands Kunstpavillon to expand the Kunstpavillon with further 400 m2 in connection to the existing pavillon. Having designed the first building, we re-established the collaboration with the museum and designed an extension that brings new life into the architecture while maintaining the original atmosphere and poetry.
It was a focal point in the design of the extension to continue the architectural vision from the first building to create a cohesion and one unity.
