KONDO MUSEUM, situated near the main gate of Kyoto’s Kiyomizu-dera Temple, by the Chawan-zaka approach to the temple.
It is believed that the ancient city of Kyoto is guarded by four mythological creatures in four separate quarters. The area surrounding the temple, is called Higashiyama district. This eastern region of Kyoto has long been known as a holy place of pristine water under the reign of Seiryu, the azure dragon and guardian of the city’s east. In this sacred area, a traditional local craft, known as Kiyomizu ceramics has continued to evolve since the Edo period. This museum was originally established in commemoration of Yuzo Kondo, the renowned master of Kiyomizu ceramics. Our project was to refurbish this memorial museum.

The woodland classroom building is located in a forest on the south side of the Museum’s campus. The building is a flexible space for science learning that blends indoor space with the surrounding natural environment. The stand-alone restroom building is located on the north side of the Museum’s campus, within a new outdoor exhibition area called Hideaway Woods, just up the trail from a Patrick Dougherty sculpture. We worked with the Museum of Life and Science to master plan these portions of their expanding campus and locate these small structures to minimize disturbance to the surrounding environs and, in the case of the woodland classroom, maximize connections with the natural environment.

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.
