MUSEO ARQUEOLÓGICO NACIONAL in Madrid, Spain by Frade Arquitectos

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Article source: Frade Arquitectos 

Two months ago, on March 31st, the opening ceremony of the new Museo Arqueológico Nacional took place. There is no doubt that it was an event that had been long waited for. A clear example of this, is the large amount of visitors that it has attracted during the first couple of weeks. A figure over 5000 visitors per day. Even though the museum has only been closed down for two and a half years out of the six that the construction lasted, it was clear to see that the re-opening generated a lot of expectation.

Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum in Kochi Prefecture, Japan by KENGO KUMA & ASSOCIATES

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Article source: KENGO KUMA & ASSOCIATES

This is a plan to link two public buildings with a bridge-typed facility, which had been long separated by the road in between. The museum technically bridges communications in this area. It functions not only as a passage between the two facilities but also as an accommodation and workshop, ideal location for artist-in-residence programs. In this project, we challenged a structural system which composes of small parts, referring to cantilever structure often employed in traditional architecture in Japan and China. It is a great example of sustainable design, as you can achieve a big cantilever even without large-sized materials.

Children’s Museum of the Arts in New York by WORK Architecture Company

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Article source: WORK Architecture Company

WORKac’s new space for the CMA organizes all activity around a large central gallery for exhibitions and events. The other art-making spaces were conceived of as classic ‘‘white boxes.’’ Surrounding and connecting these spaces is a band of color and activity in a gradient from red to indigo, providing visual and physical relief and creating a transition between the other spaces.

CINCINNATI ART MUSEUM by Neutelings Riedijk Architects

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

Article source: Neutelings Riedijk Architects

The Cincinnati Art Museum consists of a collection of historical buildings that were added over the past century. The complex and shattered structure of the building gave cause for a thorough renovation and extension. The concept offers a museum that has clear and separate spaces, attractive to exhibit different types of art plus a pleasant working environment for all employees. The existing building presents itself in smaller “en suite” galleries that are perfect to expose paintings and other hanging exhibitions.

National Photomuseum Marubi in Shkodër, Albania by casanova+hernandez architects

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Article source: casanova+hernandez architects

In 2013, the Albanian Ministry of Culture envisioned a plan to improve the national cultural infrastructure, paying special attention to the renovation of existing historical buildings, reusing them with a new cultural program. One of the first projects included in this program is the Marubi National Photomuseum, which is specially important due to its pioneer character. The plan to create the museum has enjoyed an enormous national repercussion because of the historical importance of exhibiting the photographic legacy created during more than one century by three generations of photographers from the Marubi family. But also, because preserving and disseminating Marubi’s work in a historical city as Shkodër acquires a strong symbolic significance that will help to promote the Albanian national identity, specially among new generations.

“BOCA DEL CALVARI” MUSEUM in Benidorm, Spain by JAS ARQUITECTURA

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Article source: JAS ARQUITECTURA

We understand that the city is not the sum of individual buildings , but it is the practice of the people that run that, enrich and keep evolving, people mobilized by the architecture in terms of its use and location. Whether for obvious economic and functional reasons, finally opting for the complete demolition of the existing building (apart from the historical value of it, it was only linked to emotional and age old aspects, and not like others of architectural quality and condition ), taking into account the strong link with the history of the municipality of the existing building, and the sensitivity of many people who grew up with the urban image of this, the first city Council of Benidorm.
