The construction of a Modern Museum of Natural Science, equipped according to the latest requirements, may represent for Constanta, for the region, and for Romania a huge opportunity to attract tourists, being unique in this part of Europe for its size. Therefore, to further increase its attractiveness and make it an important point in the Black Sea tourist track, we designed it as an amusement and leisure park, with a rich offering of activities to meet the different public group demands.

EauBERGE PARIS CAPSULE HOTEL in France by MenoMenoPiu Architects

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: MenoMenoPiu Architects

“Just like the other European capitals such as Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, Paris risks to become a city museum. The increase of tourists in the French Capital causes panic and also leads to a gradual decentralization from the Parisians.

Paris has the largest concentration in m² of museums in the world, nearly 120 museums in total, with many urban areas which tend to be transformed into living conservatories.

The environment present in the city is the cityscape that creates the characteristic  of the town. It is a form of elevation that our eye can capture. It may be an expression of our needs to survive in the town. Furthermore, it would generate emotional and sentimental effusion by creating a memory out of it.

MADRID Digital Arts Museum – SECOND PRIZE WINNER

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source:  Ctrl+Space Architectural

SECOND PRIZE
“LACORRALA” by Spanish team Arch. Vicente Hernandez Vaquero / Silvia Rodriguez Iglesias, Coruña – Spain

The new Digital Arts Museum of Lavapiés incorporates an existing and characteristic element of the neighborhood: “the corrala”. Through this, past and present are joined together in order to guarantee the historic memory.
The program is divided in two harmonious volumes with the surrounding, connected by the new interpretation of the corrala: LACORRALA. This element generates an interstitial void in between to allow the public access to culture and light. The courtyard captures natural light during the day and filters it towards interior spaces, which require a controlled light in order to take care of the exhibition room needs. At sunset the light box illuminates the outskirts of Lavapiés, turning in the hub of neighborhood life.

MADRID Digital Arts Museum – FIRST PRIZE WINNER

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

FIRST PRIZE
“Urban Interface” by Arch. Michelangelo Vallicelli / Lorenzo Sant’Andrea / Nicolò Troianiello, Rome – Italy

If we had to think completely in utopian terms and not responding to any specific building requirements, the solution we would better strive would have been a completely open space not being an architectural enclosure with the external environment. We would have hoped that its contents could be completely stored within a server connected to the Internet, open to anyone, anywhere. Rather being only an artworks container it could be an ‘interface’. Our project instead aims to be a ‘meta-museum’, which allow individuals anywhere in the world to upload and submit their own installations, video documentation, discussions, and that through the museum’s envelope, be returned to the city and to the local reality of Lavapiés. Being as a large public display, it can also resubmit information in its virtual site and the world wide web.

MADRID Digital Arts Museum – THIRD PRIZE WINNER

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Ctrl+Space Architectural

THIRD PRIZE
Project by Polish team: Arch. Robert Barelkowski / Leszek Chlasta / Adam Tuszynski / Mateusz Jarzabkiewicz, from Armageddon Biuro Projektowe, Poznan – Poland

Where should digital art be presented? We believe it should become a place merging the analog with the virtual, a place allowing for constant redefinition of how digital can interact with the physical. We are strongly convinced DAMM cannot replicate the typology of a typical museum, providing a flexible open source experiencing of the art.
Outer skin makes it an institution active regarding of whether building is open or closed, interactive screens allow for exploration, contemplation, research or play.
[…] Open floor as well as suspended grid gives infinite options to rearrange, at the same time provide human-responsive surfaces to reflect the visitors’ behavior.
