National Olympic Committee House in Tbilisi, Georgia by Architects of Invention

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Article source: Architects of Invention

This work represents the idea of dynamics in sport with the abstract compositions of the staircase and the reception table. The first object you encounter is the introverted desk with its never-ending fissure, and then you meet the extroverted staircase – like the open path to Olympus, where the summit meets its own reflection, inferring that striving never ends, that there is no limit to human achievement.

Schlossmuseum Linz in Austria by HoG Architektur ZT GmbH

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

Article source: HoG Architektur ZT GmbH

In the year 1800, a devastating fire occurred in Linz during which also the Southern wing of the “Linzer castle“ fell victim to the flames. The castle on the hill between the old city and the Danube lost its city-facing wing and, therefore, its presence within the urban fabric. Since 1965, the castle has been home to the Upper Austrian national museum. The requirement for additional and large exhibition space led to the new construction of the Southern wing.

Archeological Section of the Sant’Agostino Museum in Montalcino, Italy by Fabio Capanni

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Article source: Fabio Capanni

In a land consolidated by history, as is Tuscany, if you want to express originality that isn’t trivial or, worse still, elegantly empty, it’s better to surrender immediately and identify past themes that can accompany us into the future. Fabio Capanni Workshop has been pursuing this path for some time. The redesign of the basement of the old convent of Sant’Agostino has been the chance to have a direct confrontation with history.

The new Pass Museum on the North Tyrolean side juts out like an erratic boulder into the South Tyrolean side, underlining the cross-border nature of the Timmelsjoch Experience. The “Ice Cave” inside the museum pays tribute to the pioneers of the High Alpine Road and their remarkable accomplishment.

Mill City Museum in Minneapolis, MN by MS&R Architecture

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: MS&R Architecture

The Mississippi River is an unbroken thread running through the history of the City of Minneapolisand the Northern Plains region. Saint Anthony Falls—the only waterfall on the Mississippi—has attracted people to the region for thousands of years. By 1880, the falls’ massive power was harnessed to drive the turbines in Minneapolis’ monster flour mills, grinding wheat from the vast western plains into flour.

This project pursued two main objectives: creating generous exhibition spaces directly connected to the existing museum building and integrating the museum and the neighbouring KWI institute into a creative campus. Our strategy organized the organic integration of exterior and interior spaces through a concept of ramification.

Moderna Museet Malmö in Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

A starting point was that a new art museum, as a public and cultural building, represents a rare opportunity to create a new node within a city, changing the urban balance and developing the surrounding neighbourhood. In Malmö, a city in the south of Sweden, there was the possibility to create a new art museum with an informal and experimental character, housed within the 1900’s industrial building of the former Electricity plant, which would complement the main museum in Stockholm.

Janus Extension and renewal of the Rapperswil-Jona municipal museum in Switzerland by mlzd

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Article source: mlzd

The ensemble of buildings that today makes up the Rapperswil-Jona municipal museum looks back on a history of more than 700 years. In 2010/11, it underwent extensive renewal and restructuring. Starting at the end of the 13th century, a small fortified complex was built inside the town walls of Rapperswil on Lake Zurich. It was comprised of a fortified tower and a residential building, which were linked to one another by a utility building constructed along the town wall.

Nature Museum St.Gallen in Switzerland by Kit

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Article source: Kit

The project for the Nature Museum St.Gallen is conceived as a continuation of the surrounding landscape, an interplay between building mass and topography. Similar to a tectonic shift the volume is divided in to two mutually deformed parts. The resulting plan figure orients itself along the two dominant urban axes: the main road to Rohrschach and the diagonally crossing highway A1. The staggered volume of the building defines clear exterior spaces and anchors the building in its urban context.

Kalmar Museum of Art in Stockholm archipelago, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

On a remote island in the Stockholm archipelago, this small house is built within the context and specific conditions for construction that no car access for transports result in.  Around an central open space, four small rooms for sleeping, storage and bath are placed, one in each corner. Light enters through a skylight and large glazed niches that underscores the atelier like character of the central space, as it opens up toward the sky and its green environs in 360°.
