Lunel and Sète offer two new museums to the Languedoc Roussillon region in France By C+D ARCHITECTURE

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Article source: C+D ARCHITECTURE

The recently opened Médard Museum in Lunel and the Maritime Museum in Sète are now part of a wide choice of cultural visits offered in Languedoc Roussillon. The region has supported the towns in the financing of these cultural amenities. Benefiting from new funds, the two museums stand out  from the rest because of the way their architecture has been restored – they are both diametrically opposite in historical terms – and because of the content of their respective collections.

Narona Archaeological Museum in Metković, Croatia by radionica arhitekture / Goran Rako

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Article source: radionica arhitekture / Goran Rako

The ancient forum of the Roman city of Narona was buried for more than a thousand years. Barbarians came down the valley, destroying temples and decapitating statues. Then the river that descends from the high mountains piled up the sand and buried the ruins. On the site of the civic centre of the once sizeable ancient city, village houses were built, fields were sown and olive groves planted.

The Underground Extension of the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in Hague, Netherlands by HANS VAN HEESWIJK ARCHITECTS

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

Article source: HANS VAN HEESWIJK ARCHITECTS

THE HAGUE: On June 28th, after a construction period of just two years, the new Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague opens its doors to the public for the first time. The surface area of the famous Mauritshuis museum has been doubled – although there is hardly any indication of this fact above ground, thanks to a complex and spectacular feat of engineering which was completed on schedule and within budget. The dramatic yet subtle intervention has solved the logistical problems facing the constantly busy, much-visited museum, while also resulting in a bright and welcoming entrance space characterised by an ingenious and striking use of daylight. The renovation of the existing Mauritshuis was also a part of this project.
