A Former Grain Silo in Chicago, Illinois by JGMA

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Article source: JGMA 

JGMA focuses on generating energy from food waste by reviving silos and invigorating a community. Food is at the center of our daily lives: fueling human bodies, supporting a natural energy cycle, and is one of the most significant reflections of human culture. Despite this, food is continually wasted, in the City of Chicago as at rate of 55 million pounds per month according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Anaerobic Digesters can capture this food waste and generate usable energy in the form of methane gas, which could be the cleaner substitution of energy production within the city. Chicago’s Damen Grain Silo site in Pilsen, a site that once boasted massive grain production in the city has remained unoccupied along the south branch of Chicago’s river. Using the once stratifying infrastructural elements such as a vehicular bridge, the river, and aged vacant grain elevators, a new architecture emerges to suture disparate communities and ultimately connect neighbors to exciting new jobs, educational facilities, and recreational amenities. This area will mark the future of a new model for community-centric infrastructure, focused around bio-digesters, boasting a new international public market, restaurants, public parkland, wholesale food distribution, educational facilities, and a museum dedicated to a century of energy in Chicago.

Article source: The Architectural Design and Research Institute of Harbin Institute of Technology 

Back Ground Information

Northeast Asian Culture and Art Museum Complex, with the land used for its construction in Changchun Airport Economic Development Zone, close to Longjia International Airport, is Jilin Province’s important window towards the world. The base is located on the south bank of Longze Lake, facing the Conference and Exhibition Center, the Conference Center and the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall on the north bank. The completion of this project has a catalytic role in the formation of Northeast Asian political, economic, financial, commercial and trade and cultural “CBD” around Longze Lake. The design of the project is based on the image requirement that Northeast Asian Culture and Art Museum Complex should be constructed from an international prospective, the regional characteristics of Changchun Airport and the functional properties of the cultural cluster, with the “Snowfield Flagship and Culture Carrier” design concept put forward, the museum complex positioned as an international modern culture pilot cluster featuring multinational fusion.

ACTIVATE, GENERATE, INTEGRATE! in Kristiansand, Norway by SPARCH Sakellaridou / Papanikolaou Architects & Meinich Arkitekter

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Article source: SPARCH Sakellaridou / Papanikolaou Architects

The Museum of Modern Art

We wanted to create a powerful image for the city skyline and a poetic spatial experience for the art lover. At the same time we wanted to keep the industrial image of the Silo. We wanted to give it new life without gentrifying it.

Our Museum is a hybrid Silo, industrial once, now filled with light and art. Its warehouse remains a warehouse, its tubes get filled with light and movement, its ethereal extensions do not disturb the robustness of the original structure, while the big horizontal ‘crane’ reflects the sunlight.

What could a natural history museum of the 21st century look like? The special exhibition of the Academy for Architectural Culture (aac) in the Zoological Museum, Hamburg, provides some answers. In the context of the Evolutioneum workshop, scholarship students of the aac have produced designs in two parts, which are on display at the Zoological Museum, Hamburg, until 27 August. The Evolutioneum is a museum concept which builds a bridge between science and the public, and which also provides space for natural science collections and exhibitions.

FREDERICK R. WEISMAN ART MUSEUM – EXPANSION in Minnesota, Minneapolis by Gehry Partners LLP

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Article source: Gehry Partners LLP

Phase II of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum is conceived of as a natural extension of the original museum designed by Gehry Partners in 1993.

Phase II provides an additional 8,553 square feet of exhibition space on the north and east sides of the existing building.

On the southeast corner of the existing building, new gallery space is articulated as three rectangular volumes clad in the same brick as that used on the existing building. The new gallery space will provide the museum with space appropriate for the exhibition of works on paper, American art, and ceramics while animating the east side of the building that faces Coffman Memorial Plaza. These new galleries provide different scales and spatial relationships than the existing galleries, offering the museum increased flexibility in the planning of exhibitions.

Eco-Cocoon | Green Academy in Bologna, Italy by Rena Sakellaridou & Morpho Papanikolaou, SPARCH

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Rena Sakellaridou & Morpho Papanikolaou, SPARCH

We recycle ideas, architectural concepts, structures, buildings, materials. We experiment with hybrids that step out from what exists and are transformed through new programs. How do you transform the former paper factory in Marzabotto into a place for culture, development and innovation? How do you recycle this old industrial plant into new life and uses? How do you give the Green Academy strong presence?
