PLATE in Niigata, Japan by TAKUYAHOSOKAI

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: TAKUYAHOSOKAI

Isolated within a seemingly endless stretch of flat, idyllic countryside, a small but dense forest emerges into view.  Occupying 4500 square metres, the ancient copse has been preserved and nurtured in its rural setting. Nestled within this unique environment the project acts as small museum.  It consists of a market selling locally farmed produce and goods, a restaurant serving dishes using only locally grown ingredients (based on the Chisan-Chisho concept of local production for local consumption), and an event space hosting exhibitions and concerts for the community.

Building in Moscow, Russia by Gianluca Milesi architecture

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Article source: Gianluca Milesi architecture

The project is a proposal for a new branch of NCCA Museum in Moscow.

The project proposes a flexible matrix of the linear block, a strategy derived from the great modern Russian architecture. Every single block opens the buildings to the world axes and it is modular with different dimensions and openings according to the program, solar exposition, energy consumption, and sustainability. At the centre of the triangular site, the main bar is an atrium space, which connects the existing buildings, the NCCA with the future development of the area.

Romsdal Folk Museum in Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The Romsdal Folk Museum is an architectonic attraction and a treasured landmark that embodies the history and identity of the entire region. Our intention in this project was to let the structure signal its meaning and function through an architectural expression and the use of local materials. The scale of the building refers to the urbanity and morphology of the town. The overall layout of the museum grounds the connections to the town by linking different surrounding areas in an overall plan where all circulation is linked in a unified structure.The project conveys an open and progressive attitude that makes diverse utilization possible.
