Haunted play house in Tokyo, Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Saturday, August 10th, 2013


The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo presented a summer exhibition for children entitled  GHOSTS, UNDERPANTS and STARS for which we designed a Haunted house.
The concept of this exhibition invites young visitors to consider the paradox of the rules of the museum, such as ‘Don’t Run’, ‘Don’t Touch’ or ‘Keep Quiet’ by allowing behavior normally forbidden in museums.

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: Machado and Silvetti Associates

From the project’s earliest stages, the goal has been to create a strong physical connection and sense of continuity from the existing museum to the addition. Building on this initial concept, two other very important relationships that have been a focus of the project are the connection from outside to inside and from the addition’s entrance level to its main gallery level.

The initialignitionfor the design of the Museum of the Bavarian history is a seamless integration into the UNESCO World Heritage site, the old town of Regensburg. Derived from the existing roofscape the building references to history and the existence. In order to create a haptic integration, the facade is classic and modern at the same time, made out of bright, whitewashed bricks. The existing lane structure is assimilated and continued to the river Danube.

Maritime Museum Extension in Ílhavo, Portugal by ARX

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Article source: ARX 

The codfish aquarium connects two other buildings and sets and a complex built ensemble, united around the subjects of the sea and fishing. In this unusual structure, the Maritime Museum is the place of memory, the Aquarium the space for marine life and CIEMAR, installed in the old renovated school, the research center for the activities of man linked to the sea.
In articulating these three units the building is both an autonomous urban equipment that relates to the context and defines a public space, but it is also a building-path, which develops in a spiral around the tank as it connects the Museum to the old school.
