An international architectural competition for the Museum of the History of Polish Jews was organized in spring 2005. The first discussions regarding the plan to build such a museum had taken place ten years earlier. During those years it had become clear that there is a need for a dedicated museum as public interest towards Jewish history and culture had increased.

Water Museum in Granada, Spain by Juan Domingo Santos

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Article source: Juan Domingo Santos

Renovations in an old watermill, Lanjarón, Granada

The Lanjarón municipality is on the southern flank of Sierra Nevada. It is famous for its crafts, its honey and the quality of its medicinal water, including one of Spain’s most famous spas. The museum project began with a search for a site favoured by the presence of the water in natural conditions. The chosen area is at the entrance to the Sierra Nevada Regional Park, alongside the Lanjarón River and an irrigation ditch that runs around several old buildings that were formerly the municipal abattoir. The museum is installed in on this site to safeguard the natural environment from property speculation with the design of a pedestrian itinerary that connects the new activity with the water infrastructure and several examples of traditional architecture, including watermills and an old public laundry.

Atlanta History Center in Georgia by Meridian 105 Architecture

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Article source: Meridian 105 Architecture

The Atlanta History Center project is a partial interior renovation of the existing building.  The building’s exterior is addressed with the intent of maintaining a large portion of the current structure while achieving a transformation of image.  The History Center fulfills a dual purpose, operating as a traditional museum and exhibit space on the mission of the Historical Society, and acting as a revenue generating event space. The current building, characterized by corridor-style circulation and partitioned rooms challenges the use of each function, creating a circulation driven by destination rather than exploration. Because of the shortcomings of the original design, the existing history center does not support the mission and revenue goals of the historical society. This project addresses this problem.

Ordos T.C.A.O. Museum in Inner Mongolia, China by ///byn

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Article source: ///byn

Chinese calligraphy is mainly based in three characteristics: status of mind, line & color. These tree concepts triggered our original ideas for the Ordos Museum

The inhabiting/space populating logic in Inner Mongolia is grouping. Local herds of camels & horses used to browse the steppe in search for comfort. This comfort was only fulfilled when they would arrive to a DECISSION to settle in the landscape. In the same manner, the always present clouds populate the Inner Mongolian sky: groups of rounded & cotton locking clouds spread at the intense blue sky. Finally, also the original nomads will settle their yurts following a constellation. An primary impression of non-organization is quickly overcome by a self-organized logic. Here, the museum volumes have found their own space in the park. The logics of placement come from many different aspects: orientation, functionality, targeted visuals, public space, creating a unique orchestrated sequence of spaces.
