The new extension at the Norton Museum of Art in Florida by Foster + Partners

Saturday, February 20th, 2016

Article source: Foster + Partners

A gala was held in Palm Beach today on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Norton Museum of Art, which coincided with the groundbreaking ceremony for The New Norton. The event was attended by Lord Foster along with Norton Executive Director Hope Alswang, and Norton Board of Trustees Chairman Harry Howell. The New Norton will revitalise and expand the existing museum, adding more galleries and visitor facilities, while restoring the original axial layout of the Museum, set within an exotic Floridian landscape. It seeks to enhance the experience of art by reinforcing the relationship between the building and the landscape and create a new social focus for the community. It also lays the foundations for the future growth of the museum to become one of Florida’s leading cultural institutions.

Article source: Shift Architecture

Museumplein Limburg, designed by Shift architecture urbanism, has been completed in Kerkrade, a town at the Dutch-German border. Two new public facilities, Cube and Columbus, have been added to the existing Discovery Centre Continium. With these additions, Kerkrade hosts the first design museum in the Netherlands, the first inverse planetarium in Europe, as well as a wide range of new public amenities. Shift architecture urbanism’s design is an urban ensemble defined by clearly recognizable volumes, all connected by an elaborate underground public space.

Article source: KIRAMET

The necessity of the museum complex \”Scythian Naples\” construction is determined by the fact that now \”Scythian Naples\” is the only scientific, cultural and educational institution in Crimea, which activity is focused on the Scythian subject matter. The ancient city of Scythian Naples itself is worldwide known as the capital Crimean fortress and the collections of its excavations are exhibited in the leading museums of Moscow and St. Petersburg.

La Grande Escale in Segangan, Morocco by ERIK GIUDICE ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

Article source: ERIK GIUDICE ARCHITECTURE

The aim of the Museum and Cultural center is to invent a cultural center of new type without duplicating existing models, to create a hybrid space that takes into account the realities of the cultural Moroccan context, to provide different content and reach a diverse audience. The shape of the traditional nomadic tent provides the starting point for the architectural concept.

Diamond, Wien Musem Neu in Vienna, Austria by AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

The museum is located on one of the most prominent squares in Vienna. Unfortunately it is also one of urbanistically most problematic places in Vienna. The location of the newly planned extension of the “Wien Museum” is a great opportunity to improve the spatial qualities of “Karlsplatz”. The wonderful St. Charles’ Church is for sure one of the highlights of the square and Vienna in general. Urbanistacally the church is the focal point of the square, which has a good effect on it but the surrounding structures don’t really accompany this idea well. A building like St. Charles’ Church requires symmetry surrounding it to present itself even better. This inconsistency in urban planning is always present on the square and it gets more and more clear when you start to spend some time on the square. The current landscaping of the square just adds up to the inconsistency and is therefore also a part of the problem.

Columbus Museum of Art Expansion and Renovation in Ohio by DesignGroup

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Article source: DesignGroup

Under the design leadership of DesignGroup principal Michael Bongiorno, AIA, the museum design team has developed a bold and novel design strategy. DesignGroup asked provocative questions of CMA about both the relationship of the museum to contemporary culture and the museum’s physical relationship to the city and its citizens. From those questions, the design evolved out of our deep understanding of the particularities of the site, the imperatives of the programmatic relationships, and the redefinition of the museum’s relationship to its physical and social context. The building design, then, is a reflection of the museum’s ambition to be more visible, relevant, and connected to the community as a meeting point between art, the public and the physical city.
