MUSEUM FOR SWISS WATCH MAKER AUDEMARS PIGUET in Le Brassus, Switzerland by BIG Architects

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

Article source: BIG Architects

Swiss luxury watchmaker Audemars Piguet chooses BIG to expand its historic headquarters. The 2.400m2/25,800 ft pavilion will be a striking landmark to precision seamlessly integrated into the local landscape.

Team BIG, HG Merz, Luchinger & Meyer and Muller Illien´s design is rooted in the origins of the family owned company, a history of watchmaking that goes back centuries and is nested in the nature and culture of the Vallée de Joux. Surrounded by the historical workshops in Le Brassus in the heart of La Vallée de Joux, the new museum called Maison des Fondateurs, will be imbedded in the landscape – reuniting the buildings with the undulating fields of the valley.

Article source: SANCHO-MADRIDEJOS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE 

This project emerges from two individual, singular points which propose a very well defined field of work from the outset:

  • On the one hand, this is a building for a previously established art collection from the 1950s-1970s, including the collection donated to the city by Spanish artist Eduardo Sempere. This collection consists of works by modern artists: Calder, Vasarely, Chillida, Julio González and Sempere himself.

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.
