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.

Echoing and extending the many circulatory and visual connections that define its surrounding topography, the museum forms itself by extending and folding these connections through a series of pleats, producing a structure that changes as visitors move past and through it – creating great curiosity yet never fully revealing its content. The location of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at the northern edge of the Michigan State University campus is influenced by a set of movements along and across it.

”Stone Drums” and ”MO BAO”
This design for the NAMOC presents an emblem of Chinese culture and a national museum of global significance for the 21st Century. The architectural concept is based on uniting dualities; past and future, day and night, inside and outside, calm and dynamic, large and small, individual and collective.

Two phenomena were important in the project for the IWC museum:
- The clock. This museum is a place to showcase the IWC-clock as a small and precious object.
- The aesthetic context. In which world in terms of Interior Design do the customers want who purchase an IWC watch want to live?

The core idea of the project is to create a kind of „condensed-Biennale-concept“ consisting of diverse unique „pavilions“ which are melted together. Each pavilion differs in shape, size, transparency, etc. in order to create a necklace-like structure of various identities.
Thereby this whole structure will be lifted in order to enable the park to flow through the plot. Each unit could host one of the exhibition spaces (of the fine arts museum or the children’s museum), the diverse areas of the research centre and the lecture hall. The units are connectable in order to enable a maximum in flexibility.

This is a large multi-program museum to be built on the outskirts of New Taipei City, Taiwan.
We wanted to make a museum that was well connected to the site and had extremely good public spaces, both interior and exterior. Drawing on the historical convergence of influences from several different nations over the centuries, the convergence of the rivers bounding the site, and the multi-use program of the museum itself we chose to work with the idea of convergence for this project.
But by pulling the park up into the project and by bending the building down into the ground we were able to create something that is in between building and landscape. It is easy to enjoy this museum weather you enter it or just have a picnic, up high on the grass with friends, while enjoying the view.

A museum for Celtic art, in direct proximity to a historic burial mound. Added Value Similar to an excavated archaeological find, the metal body of the museum juts out from the landscape and forms a counterpart to the burial mound. More of a mysterious object itself rather than architecture, the museum should be stumbled upon by its visitors as a marker of landscape discovery.

Movements and gestures of dancers are full of expression and tension. Dancers bring the fascinated viewer into an internal world of experience and emotion through the swinging movement of their hips, decorative arrangement of their fingers and smooth vibration of the ornamental frills. Rhythmic and dynamic music transmits the spectator into a world of incredible aesthetic feelings awakening all senses and inflaming the imagination…
….This is how architecture dedicated to the culture of feisty flamenco should look like….
