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 .

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.
