C-City in Kerkrade, The Netherlands by Shift architecture urbanism

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Article source: Shift architecture urbanism

Construction of the museum district C-City, designed by Shift Architecture Urbanism, has started in Kerkrade, Netherlands. Two new public facilities, Cube and Columbus, will be added to the existing, highly successful Discovery Centre Continium. With these additions, Kerkrade, a town at the Dutch-German border, will host the first design museum in the Netherlands, the first inverse planetarium in Europe as well as a wide range of new amenities for the public. Shift Architecture Urbanism’s design is an urban ensemble defined by clearly recognizable volumes, all connected by a vast, underground public space. C-City will mark the entrance into Kerkrade for both train passengers and visitors arriving by car from the main access road. The new museum quarter will open its doors at the end of 2015, with a total budget of 20,5 million Euro.

Article source: HG-A | LIVE COMPONENTS

Everything in nature is made up of components. It starts from basic components like atoms and molecules, and grows to bigger components like tissues and organs in order to construct a ‘live’ body. The artificial environment is quite the same. It all starts with basic components like points and lines, and grows to surface and finally construct a space.

Drents Museum in Assen, Netherlands by Erick van Egeraat

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Article source: Erick van Egeraat

The most important aspect of Erick van Egeraat’s design for the new entrance and extension of the Drents Museum is the consistent integration of the museum into the fabric of the city. A balanced play of building, landscape and water, creates a new identity for the extended museum, emphasizing both the scenic character and the cultural-historic face of the city centre of Assen. The new exhibition wing covers 2 000m², all under ground. Its staggered, organic roof consists of a public garden that connects the existing city parks. Openings in the roof allow daylight to enter the exhibition spaces below.
