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.

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.
