2011 Taipei Museum Competition in Taiwan by Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Article source: Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects

ARCHITECTURE & LANDSCAPE CONCEPT

To achieve the objectives of an architecturally iconic museum of art with versatile art exhibition spaces in a highly sustainable project this proposal defines the concept of art exhibition beyond the conventional “stuffy” notions of uniformly rectangular, windowless interior galleries. Instead, the project provides both interior and exterior venues for a variety of public experiences, and creates the opportunity for day-lighting and sustainability in ways that are unprecedented for art museums.

New Taipei City Museum of Art in Taiwan by DCPP Arquitectos

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

Article source: DCPP Arquitectos

Our proposal for the New Taipei City Museum of Art is an open and welcoming design that erases the barrier of exclusivity normally surrounding the world of art, patrons, and experts.  As such, the architecture of the New Taipei City Museum of Art is one that embodies this idea of erasure through eliminating the traditional borders between exhibition space and circulation, as well as exterior and interior. Every part of the museum is represented by a space without limits that can hold any type of expression.

The new museum building has been designed in response to its context – to the park, river, city and  surrounding mountains. The concept connects the building and its spaces with the unique features of the site and its surrounds.

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Intended to introduce up to 1 million visitors a year to the wonders of Red Rock Canyon, the new Interpretive Facility differs from traditional visitor centers by emphasizing the specific attributes of Red Rock Canyon itself, in lieu of pseudo-natural imitations. Here, visitors are introduced to the relevant science, art and culture that will enhance their experience in Red Rock Canyon; strongly encouraging them to visit the nearby real thing.

Jøssingfjord Museum in Norway by Superunion Architects + Powerhouse Company

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: Superunion Architects

Architecture begins where the pure necessity of the need for a shelter ends. The ability of man to command nature and use it as a protection against itself is the very beginning of civilization. The caves of Jøssingfjordas well as it’s hydro power station are in that sense two monuments for Norwegian innovation and civilization: to shelter within the mass, to reap from natures power.

New Taipei City Museum of Art in Taiwan by Design Initiatives

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Article source: Design Initiatives

Our attempt in the New Taipei City Museum of Art competition is to find the essence of art and to materialize our notion of art; to redefine the meaning of art museum and to alter the way art museum functions; to organize a relationship between ourselves and the world around us. In addition to animate forms we have manipulated the movement in order to induce the production of new urban opportunities. Our proposal is a synthesis of the different programmatic functions: art museum, park, footbridge, services in a flexible, versatile space.

Article source: Eero Lunden Studio (Helsinki, Finland)  + Eric Tan of PinkCloud.DK

Can the experience of art be enhanced through architecture?

White walls + Isolated Rooms = Good museum? Our design of the Serlauchius Museum extension seeks to deviate from that mantra by developing an architecture that directly facilitates human interaction with art. It is our firm belief that the experience of art can be enhanced through innovative architecture and new spatial experiences.The design of the Maison Promino seeks to achieve two main goals: to create an inspiring piece of architecture that will enhance the image of Serlachius Art Musuem globally and to provide a truly unique museum experience by connecting visitors with the art like never before.
