Städel Museum Extension in Frankfurt, Germany by Schneider+Schumacher

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Article source: Schneider+Schumacher

The Frankfurt Städel Museum is about to undergo the largest expansion ever in the course of its nearly two-hundred-year history – with regard to its architecture and its collection alike. In the autumn of 2009, in conjunction with numerous important additions to the museum’s holdings, work commenced on the construction of an annex for the presentation of contemporary art. Designed by the architectural firm schneider+schumacher of Frankfurt, this extension will open its doors for the first time on 25 and 26 February with two Open House days and a big public celebration.

Wine Museum ‘Vinseum’ in Barcelona, Spain by SVArquitectura

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: SVArquitectura

The proposal aims to preserve and rehabilitate the old medieval Royal Palace and the chapel of San Pellegrino and to transform them into a part of the new museum. The building in between them has to be demolished and replaced by a new one which forms the keystone of the entire ensemble. The void left by the demolition of the building ‘Cal Pa i Figues’ will be partially occupied by the construction of this new volume, attached to the Gothic palace and of the same height as its tower. The unoccupied part of the void allows defining a passage along the chapel of San Pellegrino which gives access to the new main entrance. This solution reminds to corresponding situations in the neighborhood.

OCT Design Museum in Shenzhen, China by Studio Pei-Zhu

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Article source: Studio Pei-Zhu

The inspiration for the project comes from both the location being close to the bay and from the needs of the program, a surreal space for design exhibitions. The Oct design museum focuses mainly on fashion shows, product design, and conceptual automotive shows. The goal was to create a space that is surreal to the subject matter but also transcendental in surrounding and feeling. The design of the interior relies on a continuous white curving surface that casts no shadows and has no depth.

Tianjin Art Museum in China by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten

Article source: KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten

Only three years after the German studio won the competition, the museum opens its doors to the public.

The Tianjin Art Museum, which in April 2009 took first prize in an international competition, has space to house four permanent exhibitions. In addition to rooms for Chinese calligraphy, western art, sculpture, and modern art, there are also galleries in which changing exhibitions can be presented. Together with three additional cultural facilities (a library, an opera house and another new museum) the new exhibition center forms part of a 90-hectare culture and leisure time development in the Hexi district of Tianjin. This new quarter is dominated by an extensive area of greenery boasting a lake. In the row of striking exhibition and cultural edifices, the art museum is located on the lakeside promenade, which its visible side and main entrance overlook. The new buildings used for cultural purposes face the road, i.e., in the direction of the city, thereby creating a harmonious overall impression.

Musée de la Romanitée Narbonne in Southern France by Foster + Partners

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Article source: Foster + Partners

Following an international competition, Foster + Partners, working with museum designer Adrien Gardere, is designing a new museum for Roman artefacts in the city of Narbonne, southern France.

As a vital Roman port, Narbonne has an impressive legacy of buildings, ancient relics and archaeological sites. The centrepiece of the museum is a collection of more than 1,000 ancient stone relief funerary blocks excavated nearby. Their display forms a natural barrier at the heart of the simple, rectilinear building, separating the public galleries from the more private restoration spaces. Visitors will be able to glimpse the work of the archaeologists and researchers through its mosaic of stone and light, and the flexible display framework allows the reliefs to be easily reconfigured and used as an active tool for learning.

Nam June Paik Museum in Yongin City, South Korea by Hackenbroich Architekten

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Hackenbroich Architekten

Nam June Paik and his interest for nature and technology inspired us to bring nature and technology into a reciprocal presupposition, where one topic influences the other and vice versa. The building is transformed, generated and dissolved by nature and technology. Instead of defining an opposition between these two issues the project is about the discovery of their interaction.

Museum of Polish History in Warsaw, Poland by Zerafa Architecture Studio

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Article source: Zerafa Architecture Studio

The challenge of creating a new Museum of Polish History today involves considering the historical relationship between a National identity, collective memory and a culture’s traditions within a modern global context.  The design of the museum and the crafting of a user experience that communicates an essential spirit of Polish Identity and is also meaningful to visitors from around the world represent a universal challenge of our time. We believe the solution lies within the power of history to illuminate, teach and improve relationships through the celebration of ideas and human aspirations. The collective memory of a Nation is quite often defined by those memories enshrined in national monuments and in particular, those not publically memorialized.  The idea of a “collected memory”, one that is inherently fragmented and individual in character in relation to “collective psychology” that represents a group’s common ideas and aspirations is the starting point for our design.
