DIGITAL MUSEUM in Pecica, Arad County, Romania by Claudiu IONESCU

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Article source: Claudiu IONESCU

“Inspired by Constantin BRANCUSI’s „Miracle” sculpture, the building rises naturally from the ground through golden spirals (the Fibonacci spirals) and crystallizes in a shape that, just like its muse, tries to set itself free from „the past burdens”, striving to rise high. Its shape offers the visitor a feeling of aspiration, an aspiration not only of the building, but of life itself.” – Claudiu IONESCU – architect

MicroPark Museum in Sulmona, Italy by MOAB ARCHITETTURA

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Article source: MOAB ARCHITETTURA

The main purpose of the project is the promotion of the archaeological site of Largo Salvatore Tommasi, in the historical center of Sulmona. Rests of mosaic floors and walls decorated with polychromatic plaster were found on site and they most likely belonged to a large building of the Augustan age.

The discovery itself and then the enhancement of the ruins become an opportunity to reclaim urban area – with high potentials – considered at present only as “retro” or transfer path .

CERAMIC MUSEUM AND MOSAIC PARK in JINZHOU, CHINA by Casanova + Hernandez Architects

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Article source: Casanova + Hernandez Architects

The urban extension of Jinzhou, a city of three million inhabitants located less than 500 kilometres north-east of Beijing, has been articulated by the creation of a new large public park of 176 Ha in an area reclaimed from the sea. During a first phase, the park hosts the 2013 Jinzhou World Landscape Art Exposition and once the Expo is closed, the area will become the central park of a new urban development.

BLÅVAND BUNKER MUSEUM in Varde, Denmark by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Article source: BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

Museum Center Blåvand integrates 4 independent institutions – a bunker museum, an amber museum, a histolarium and a special exhibitions gallery – in an exhibition landscape embedded in the dunes. As the antithesis to the heavy volume of the bunker, the museum appears as the intersection between a series of precise cuts in the landscape. A block in the landscape – and a corresponding absence of the dune.

Museum of Vucedol Culture in Vukovar, Croatia by Radionica arhitekture

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Radionica arhitekture 

The museum building is a path which the visitors climb to overcome the elevation difference of some twenty meters, from the access road to the plateau on which the Vučedol culture archaeological findings have been discovered. Passing through the museum visitors get all the necessary information about the Vučedol culture, and come to the place of the archaeological sondages aware of importance and meaning of that place. Exhibition areas of the museum are a series of terraces that climb slowly adapting to the topography.

THE THREE CUSPS CHALET in Sé, Braga, Portugal by Tiago do Vale Architects

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Article source: Tiago do Vale Architects

HISTORICAL CONTEXT

In the second half of the 19th century Portugal saw the return of a large number of emigrants from Brazil. While returning to their northern roots, specially in the Douro and Minho regions, they brought with them sizable fortunes made in trade and industry, born of the economic boom and cultural melting pot of the 19th century Brazil. With them came a culture and cosmopolitanism that was quite unheard of in the Portugal of the eighteen-hundreds.
