The Design Museum of London in England by OMA with Allies and Morrison

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: OMA 

In December 2007, along with five other architectural firms, OMA was invited by Chelsfield deputy chairman Sir Stuart Lipton to consider the potential of the Commonwealth Institute site. OMA’s proposal sought to save the grade II* listed building by reinjecting life into the modernist monument, the new home for London’s Design Museum, while retaining its distinctive copper roof and parabolic form. OMA with Allies and Morrison were the architects responsible for the design of the refurbished structural shell and external envelope of the building. The project required a close working relationship with Design Museum interior architects, John Pawson.

The Museum of 20th Century in Berlin, Germany by Architects of Invention

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Architects of Invention

MAIN IDEA

The LANDSCAPE BUILDING concept was conceived as a subtle exchange; it is a terrain itself. The building uses every aspect of its construction for navigation and art exhibition. The roof slopes are pedestrian walkways and they form a sculpture park. (The gradients of sculpture park give many different observation angles for users to apprehend the sculptural work on display.) The views from these roof gradients onto the surrounding buildings and parkland also give the idea that this building is a piece of landscape itself.

DMMRC – Dubai Maritime Museum & Research Centre in United Arab Emirates by Studio Niko Kapa

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Relating to both the sea and the city and in constant dialogue between them, the building is an extension of the city to the sea and vice-versa. Conceived as a continuation and a transition through the wide public space, the building dives into the ocean and merges with it. It develops as a triangular sharp form, which concentrates the public routes to the museum, through an inviting shape that draws visitors to the entrance and distributes them to the interior.

20TH CENTURY ART MUSEUM in Berlin, Germany by Rafi Segal A+U Landscape Architect: Susannah Drake (Dlandstudio)

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Article source: Rafi Segal A+U Landscape Architect: Susannah Drake (Dlandstudio)

Competition entry for Berlin’s Museum of 20th Century Art to be located in the Kulturforum district. The project proposes a series of pavilions, public spaces and gardens connected and unified by a greenhouse structure. Serving both a symbolic and functional purpose, our project conceives this public building as a space that one could see through and into, creating a new kind of public space where 20th Century Art’s fascination with the abstract is met with the elements of nature and the figures of the city.

Automobile Museum in Nanjing, China by 3GATTI Architecture Studio

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: 3GATTI Architecture Studio

“Car Experience” is a project for a building to be dedicated to the automobile:  the car as an object of desire, a world to explore, a technology to study, an article to display  and a means to travel around the building.

­Here the world of the automobile intersects with the human and organic world creating a new tectonic structure with methods differing from the usual flat open spaces, squares… all on a human scale.  Here everything is geared to the automobile – the car is the point of reference.
