MOA – Museum of Architecture in London by Seeding Office-Architecture

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

Article source: Seeding Office-Architecture

Sir G. Scott, the man who designed Battersea Power Station, was a master in blending gothic tradition with modernism and he created some of the most legendary landmarks of his time. The concept design for the new Museum Of Architecture aims to engage the deepest roots of this listed building to a unique, sustainable and contemporary design. A building that is the symbol and beholder of an extraordinary history demands an approach which evokes, inspires and remembers its stories by retaining the visual memory of all its art deco details, including its cracked walls, marks, broken beams, etc.

Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous sailing vessels. After being decommissioned, the historic clipper ship has rested in a dry dock in the centre of historic maritime Greenwich where it served as public museum. Grimshaw Architects in association with Youmeheshe Architects and Designers were commissioned to design a cutting-edge visitor centre within and beneath the ship as part of a 27 million pound conservation programme that required closing the attraction for a complete restoration overhaul.

A Circle in a Square in Niigata prefecture, Japan by Binocle

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: Binocle

Novalis noted that “The curve is the triumph of the freedom on the rule”, Giovanni Lindo Ferretti used to sing that “Straightness is for hastiness” and Oscar Niemeyer kept on explaining: “It is not the right angle that attracts me. Nor the straight line, tough, inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free, sensual curve. The curve I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the waves of the sea, in the clouds of the sky, in the body of the favorite woman. Of curves is made all the universe.”
