It was both an incredible honor and an exhilarating challenge to create The Wright, the new restaurant at the Guggenheim Museum — which is the first addition to the building’s iconic interior. We sought to create a contemporary response to complement the building with an extremely modest budget and 1,600 square feet in which to work.

The renovation of the museum in the park near the lake in Ichi- hara city, Chiba, Japan. Roofs are like if the strings were surrounding the existing building. These strings are connecting the roof of the exiting building, garden on the ground, and the lakeside. Moreover, the parts of them become the spaces to connect outside to inside and visitors can walk around them.

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.

The CITA [Centro Interpretativo do Tapete de Arraiolos – Arraiolos Tapestry Museum] is located at Arraiolos main public space, the Praça Lima e Brito, where the town hall is sited. The project for the museum consists in a contemporary intervention that defines a selective strategy to deal with the existing elements. It proposes a clear spatial organization to respond to the programmatic and technological requirements, thus bringing to the building a coherent and continuous exhibition narrative that is focused on all the cycles of production of this particular tapestry.

A NEW MUSEUM: AN OPEN MUSEUM EXPERIENCE
More open to a wider public, Contemporary Art Museums are becoming hybrids programs and transforming the way that people approach to art and becoming real places to be. The key issue for New Taipei City Museum of Art is how to gather people and art while integrating the landscape into the museum and the museum into the park? In the “Art as lifestyle strategy” the project attributes equal importance to people than to exhibit spaces and art collections. Seeking a new equilibrium in the museum’s spatial structure, the project considers the people circulation as a raw matter to define and construct the museum experience. The architecture proposes to live the museum as a dynamic experience where people shall have an important role in shaping the museum’s image.

Our new museum and cultural centre emerges in contrast to a surrounding vertical skyline – seemingly defying gravity as it ‘floats’ above the ground, its long, curvilinear lines generating a building of enormous fluidity, velocity and lightness within which visitors may ‘experiment’ with the very notion of ‘gallery’.
