Concept of the Memorial Complex in Auschwitz II-Birkenau Concentration Camp by Arch group

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

Article source: Arch group

70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz is an occasion to think again about those events and their significance for modern society.

Oswiecim (Auschwitz) is synonymous with the greatest evil in the history of mankind. What happened is so monstrously and bloodcurdling that does not fit into the average person’s head.

CRICOTEKA. Museum of Tadeusz Kantor in Kraków, Poland by WIZJA Sp. z o.o.

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Article source: WIZJA Sp. z o.o. 

Any time I manage to make something genuinely new, it is made of well-known elements of surrounding reality. It fascinates me as a kind of perversion, kind of unauthorized, unacceptable operation and I think it is the only way to find something truly isolated in art.

The Southern U.S. Inspires Southpoint Capital Advisors’ New Office by MKDA

Sunday, March 1st, 2015

Article source: MKDA

The Mad Potter of Biloxi, George E. Ohr, whose ceramic art reemerged in 2010 with the opening of the Frank Gehry-designed Ohr-O’Keefe Museum Of Art, was the inspiration behind a new workplace created by interiors firm MKDA for Southpoint Capital Advisors.

The hedge fund’s owner, originally from the Southern United States, also provided vision for the 22nd floor boutique office located at 1114 Avenue of the Americas in the W.R. Grace Building. He required a warm and hospitable environment that was equally modern and efficient.

KANARI ISLAND in Piraeus, Greece by U67 (Fabio Gigone + Angela Gigliotti)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

Article source: U67 (Fabio Gigone + Angela Gigliotti)

The Piraeus and the city of Athens together form a complex metropolitan area in which the presence of an archipelago of spaces emerges clearly from the dense low-rise fabrics’ layer of the houses. The islands of this archipelago could be considered the eminent mountains, hills, sporadic open spaces, thick industrial buffers and a myriad of gardens. In a way, here the Cyclades are mirrored to form a reverse: where the docking to one of those “islands” often means to get a breath. “Kanari Island” and “Ietionian Gate” are two twin islands placed next to the Piraeus Port, even if not directly connected with the sea and not even to each other, still their opposite topography makes the docking to them two completely different experiences. The relationship between these two islands is the framework in which this proposal has to be collocated. Both for the visitors and for the residents, the “Kanari Island” has a central role due to its position: it is a contemporary urban gate for the city.

Museum and Lighthouse of czech genius Jara Cimrman by Martin Rajniš

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

Jára Cimrman is a fictitious Czech national giant. He excelled in many roles – as an inventor, scientist, playwright, poet, composer, artist, teacher, traveler, philosopher, detective, mathematician, pilot, sportsman and dentist.
In his case, you can hardly find a profession that he has not made a radical contribution to.

He was born in the end of the 19th century and his footprint disappeared after the First World War.

Guggenheim Helsinki Museum in Finland by LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

The skyline of the Guggenheim Helsinki Museum emerges as a sequence of soft golden waves undulating in the harbor.

To the north the volumes are low, to avoid shading the public realm and not to overlook the Palace Hotel; then they rise rapidly and decrease in the center of the building; towards the park the waves rise again and fall to the south, where they find a perfect balance with the harbor’s public realm. There’s a central slope between north and south so that the volume does not interfere with the main views from the park Tähtitornin Vuori, the Helsinki Cathedral and the Uspenski Cathedral.
