Gosta Museum of Fine Art extension in Mantta, Finland by gianluca milesi architecture

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: gianluca milesi architecture

TheGostaMuseumis placed in a very particular location, merged in an extremely fascinating natural environment. Starting from this character of the existing museum building and the future extension, we thought to design a building that could be at the same time respectful of nature and could be merged itself in the particular environment. We thought at the building as a built media connecting the works of art and the visitors to the panorama and the beauty of nature.

Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa by KPMB Architects

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Article source: KPMB Architects

The Canadian Museum of Nature (CMN) was the first purpose built museum in the country. It is now recognized for the interdependence of its learning and research components and a collection that includes 10 million specimens gathered over 150 years. The original building – known as the Victoria Memorial Museum Building (VMMB) – was designed in the Beaux-Arts Style by David Ewart. Shortly after its completion in 1912, the stone tower began to sink into the ground. In 1915, the upper part of the tower was removed to de-load the structure, leaving the base as the main entrance vestibule but consequently diminishing the building’s original composition, and impacting the original clarity of the Beaux Arts plan.

Museum And Educational Center in Moscow, Russia by 3XN

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Article source: 3XN

The intent of the new Museum & Educational Centre (MEC) is to be a meaningful building beyond its iconic form.  Through both an internal and external architectural expression of flexibility, it recognizes that architecture shapes behavior.  In that regard, the new MEC is about connecting with people, while opening up the world of science, technology, innovation and Russia’s extraordinary achievements in these domains. As technology develops and we enter deeper into the 21st century, the convergence of Science and Art becomes even more relevant in our everyday interactions. Today’s society seeks ways that Science and Mathematics can be viewed as approachable disciplines, in order to understand the full potential of technology, and its applications in making our world a better place.  The new MEC will be a gateway to this world, challenging and evolving visitors’ perception of science and technology.

Karuizawa Museum Coplex in Nagano-ken, Japan by Yasui Hideo Atelier

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Article source: Yasui Hideo Atelier

I was requested, after winning through the competition, to design a facility accompanied to the museum of Hiroshi SENJU, a world-famous Japanese painter/artist. Before I started the actual planning, I prioritized building my conceptual work first ( i.e. geometrical shape containing both traditional and modern forms ) in order to make my design coexist on the same site with the museum that had a curved form interpreting Karuizawa ’s nature in a elegant way.

LaM – Lille Museum of Modern, Contemporary and Outsider Art in Villeneuve d’Ascq, France by Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

The project concerns the refurbishment and the extension of the Lille Modern Art Museum in a magnificent park at Villeneuve d’Ascq. The existing building, designed by Roland Simounet in 1983, is already on the Historic monuments list. The project aims at building up the museum as a continuous and fluid entity, this by adding new galleries dedicated to a collection of Art Brut works, from a travelling movement that extrapolates existing spaces. A complete refurbishment of the existing building was next required, some parts were very worn.
