Museum of the Wine in Almendralejo, Spain by GAP Arquitectos

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Article source: GAP Arquitectos

The project of the Museum of the Wine in Almendralejo (Badajoz) poses and assumes the duality that exists in the process of elaboration of the wine. Science and art, system and chance, technical and inspiration are the opposites that build, in a mysterious, magic, almost miraculous way, a fine wine.

Central Library and Museum for the University of Alcalá de Henares in Spain by dosmasunoarquitectos

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Memory

Occupying a historic building

We thought that the project for the new Central Library of Alcalá de Henares University should not be strictly limited to a refurbishment task, in which a new program and furniture are to supersede the original ones. It should be understood as an insertion into an existing party-wall, acquiring its shape, absorbing light and fresh air, and opening towards the sky as the only possible way out. This implies the creation of a new space within an existing heritage building which features its own identity, and which is as well respectfully introduced into a formerly built context. The development of spatial strategies to occupy a given volume, as well as the generation of an inner façade to link and accommodate the new uses into the already existent building, are some of the keys through which the project evolved. Besides, it was equally important to develop an independent and flexible constructive process, neutral and nuanced at the same time, which ensured the adaptation of the new program without constraining it physically.

The Jewish Museum Berlin, which opened to the public in 2001, exhibits the social, political and cultural history of the Jews in Germany from the 4th century to the present. The museum explicitly presents and integrates, for the first time in postwar Germany, the repercussions of the Holocaust. The new extension is housed on the site of the original Prussian Court of Justice building which was completed in 1735 and renovated in the 1960s to become a museum for the city of Berlin.

Glass Courtyard in Berlin, Germany by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The 7,000 square foot addition to the Jewish Museum in Berlin is located in the courtyard of the original building, which was built in 1735. The museum needed a multifunctional space that would provide additional room for the museum’s restaurant and extend the lobby to provide event space for lectures, concerts, and dinners. The distinctive architecture of the addition creates a space that can be used throughout the year while preserving the courtyard qualities of the baroque building.

At the extension of the axis of the fifth avenue, pier museum becomes the ending of the urban space above the sea. The typology of building expresses the conversion and interaction of spatial energy. Simulating the natural growth, along the view toward the seascape in distance, the structure stretch from the beach end to the sea, converts the city space formed by street to a floating seascape terrace, planar pier evolutes to an organic structure, and provides the free path of promenade above the sea level.
