Norway`s national music museum (Extension, restoration) in Lade, Trondheim by LINK arkitektur

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: LINK arkitektur

Ringve – Norway`s National Music Museum is located on a hill on the Lade peninsula near Trondheim with great views of the cultural landscape and Trondheimsfjorden surrounding the site. The buildings, situated in a typical homestead arrangement, were erected from 1740 to 1952. All of the buildings are worthy of protection. The Ringve National Music Museum has a national mandate to conserve and convey both music and musical instruments. The museum is fitted with a new extension as well as rehabilitation and refurbishing of the existing buildings. The extension is located outside of the stead enclosure as a “black box” for temporary exhibitions. The design of the building is in part inspired by the resonance boxes usually featured in many musical instruments. From the media library, you will find beautiful views of the botanic garden surrounding the estate. A new common entry area with a reception, museum store and café connects both the permanent and temporary exhibitions. In addition, the old banquet hall has also been upgraded and refurbished. One of the main goals of the project was to secure an environmentally friendly design throughout, and the new extension is Norway’s first museum building built in compliance with the passive house standard. A new elevator was installed to secure accessibility for all visitors in the new museum complex.

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM in Helsinki, Finland by Spark Architects

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Article source: Spark Architects

DESIGN STATEMENT:

The design aims to function as a translator between the urban condition, the public, and the museum spaces.

The existing urban edges of the city context define a triangular building mass. Lifting the main exhibition space allows the public and the museum programme to float freely underneath, creating a continuous connection between the urban fabric and water.

MOSF (Museum of science fiction) in Washington D.C by Miguel A. Arias

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Miguel A. Arias

The conception of a museum of science fiction is created by the need to expose the exorbitant knowledge that this discipline has developed throughout history. Supported by actual studies, this science includes theories and structure still unconfirmed, making possible validity and creation, any invention of the uncertain or nonexistent.

Luminous Moon-Gate (Taichung City Cultural Center) in Taichung, Taiwan by Form4 Architecture

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Luminous Moon-Gate was designed in 2013 for the Taichung City Cultural Center International Competition. The design intent behind the proposed project hints at multiple interpretative roles for Taichung: a portal into heightened consciousness, a lantern of knowledge, a catalyst for metropolitan living, a cultural lung for the body of the city, a gate toward a responsible future, a center regenerative of community life, a landmark for orientation.

G U G G E N H E I M H E L S I N K I in Finland by Rafi Segal Architecture

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

Article source: Rafi Segal Architecture 

The Urbanism of Helsinki, as much as the museum’s program, plays a defining role in shaping the new Guggenheim located in Eteläsatama.  Capturing the activity of the city’s south harbor, the project creates a series of terraces and courtyards, cut-out of the building’s mass, which extend the urban public space of the waterfront onto the higher ground of TahititorninVuori Park. The ascending movement of these terraces is echoed in the interior organization of the museum which is conceived as an architectural promenade of exhibition spaces and urban vistas. Tourists and residents, art and community meet through the new museum building and within it. The icon of cultural activity seen from a far becomes at close an urban landscape of courtyards and passages which enhances the experience of the city and its fellowship with the elements of nature.
