MADU is a small museum for a collection of Art, Design and Urbanism. Like it’s content the building becomes an object by itself. Based on a deformed sphere, the shape is autonomous and will co-exist harmoniously with it’s surroundings. The content of the exhibition are in it’s majority small objects and require small rooms in specific groups. In order to have an integrated solution for program structure and circulation, a single wavy slab is disposed in an helicoidal way so it becomes stable without the need for columns or beams and allowing a diversity in circulation that makes a free fluid experience to it’s visitors.

In the grounds of Prague Castle, among various palaces currently reused to house the National Gallery, the brief was to design a small building that provides an entrance to the museum complex. Two parallel surfaces organize what used to be an empty space without weighing it down: one forms the floor, the other the roof.

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.

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.

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.
