The State Museum of Egyptian Art and The University of Film and Television in Munich, Germany by Peter Böhm Architekten

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Peter Böhm Architekten

The extraordinary urban development with the large free square in front of the Old Pinakothek made it possible to close this square with a generous, quiet building in the south, which takes up approximately the proportion of the Old Pinakothek, vis-à-vis in the north, where the new building lies. In accordance with the lateral emphasis of the Old Pinakothek with its space-limiting risalits and avenue, is the entrance to the University of Film and Television located in the east of the new building and in the west the entrance to the State Museum of Egyptian Art, which is buried like an archaeological excavation underneath the green forecourt.

Cantine antinori in Firenze, Italy by Archea Associati

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Article source: Archea Associati 

The site is surrounded by the unique hills of Chianti, covered with vineyards, half-way between Florence and Siena. A cultured and illuminated customer has made it possible to pursue, through architecture, the enhancement of the landscape and the surroundings as expression of the cultural and social valence of the place where wine is produced. The functional aspects have therefore become an essential part of a design itinerary which centres on the geomorphological experimentation of a building understood as the most authentic expression of a desired symbiosis and merger between anthropic culture, the work of man, his work environment and the natural environment. The physical and intellectual construction of the winery pivots on the profound and deep-rooted ties with the land, a relationship which is so intense and suffered (also in terms of economic investment) as to make the architectural image conceal itself and blend into it. The purpose of the project has therefore been to merge the building and the rural landscape; the industrial complex appears to be a part of the latter thanks to the roof, which has been turned into a plot of farmland cultivated with vines, interrupted, along the contour lines, by two horizontal cuts which let light into the interior and provide those inside the building with a view of the landscape through the imaginary construction of a diorama. The façade, to use an expression typical of buildings, therefore extends horizontally along the natural slope, paced by the rows of vines which, along with the earth, form its “roof cover”. The openings or cuts discreetly reveal the underground interior: the office areas, organized like a belvedere above the barricade, and the areas where the wine is produced are arranged along the lower, and the bottling and storage areas along the upper.

Article source: aMDL studio 

Alessandro Manzoni lived in numerous houses, but the only one that can be considered really his is the mansion in Via Morone in Milan, where the writer lived from 1814 up till his death. The building, which had been badly altered in the course of time, has now been restored in such a way as to re-establish the warm and domestic atmosphere in which Manzoni’s literary output was produced.

Archaeology museum in Almería, Spain by Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

Article source: Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos 

The urban context of the new Museum, surrounded by high rise housing and a ring road, determined its compact character. The building is placed as a single bulk at one of the edges of the lot available, leaving the space remaining as facility for the city. The entrance is located at the end of this plaza, slightly elevated above the level of the nearby roads, becoming a public space for the city as well as an outdoor lobby for the museum. The existing palm garden aside was kept and extended in order to include it within the exhibition space. The Museum is meant to host an outstanding archaeological collection from sites in the Almeria area, formerly located in dispersed places.

Karlovac Freshwater Aquarium and River Museum in Croatia by Studio 3LHD

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: Studio 3LHD

The Karlovac freshwater aquarium is located on a site of a planned campsite by the river Korana. The building volume is partially dug into the ground and covered with earthen embankments from its outer edges. The design concept was inspired by the city’s historic center “Karlovac star” surrounded by “Šanci” – defensive earthen walls and mounds. The goal was to form a new city focal point on the right side of Korana River, to validate the promenade and make a new tourist attraction. A public square area is defined by the aquarium building surrounding it. The main pedestrian routes intercept it in three main directions: western towards the city center and the promenade, southern towards the neighboring polyvalent area used for concerts and eastern towards the main road approach and the stadium. The aquarium facilities are hidden around the square without disturbing the natural Korana valley.

The Design Museum of London in England by OMA with Allies and Morrison

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: OMA 

In December 2007, along with five other architectural firms, OMA was invited by Chelsfield deputy chairman Sir Stuart Lipton to consider the potential of the Commonwealth Institute site. OMA’s proposal sought to save the grade II* listed building by reinjecting life into the modernist monument, the new home for London’s Design Museum, while retaining its distinctive copper roof and parabolic form. OMA with Allies and Morrison were the architects responsible for the design of the refurbished structural shell and external envelope of the building. The project required a close working relationship with Design Museum interior architects, John Pawson.

The Museum of 20th Century in Berlin, Germany by Architects of Invention

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Architects of Invention

MAIN IDEA

The LANDSCAPE BUILDING concept was conceived as a subtle exchange; it is a terrain itself. The building uses every aspect of its construction for navigation and art exhibition. The roof slopes are pedestrian walkways and they form a sculpture park. (The gradients of sculpture park give many different observation angles for users to apprehend the sculptural work on display.) The views from these roof gradients onto the surrounding buildings and parkland also give the idea that this building is a piece of landscape itself.

DMMRC – Dubai Maritime Museum & Research Centre in United Arab Emirates by Studio Niko Kapa

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Relating to both the sea and the city and in constant dialogue between them, the building is an extension of the city to the sea and vice-versa. Conceived as a continuation and a transition through the wide public space, the building dives into the ocean and merges with it. It develops as a triangular sharp form, which concentrates the public routes to the museum, through an inviting shape that draws visitors to the entrance and distributes them to the interior.
