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.

China Academy of Art Museum in Hangzhou by Kengo Kuma & Associates

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

The folk art museum stands in the campus of China Academy of Arts in Hangzhou. The site was formerly a tea field that formed a hillside. Our point was to design a museum from which the ground below can be felt, by continuing the building’s floors that follow the ups and downs of the slope. Planning is based on geometric division in the units of parallelogram to deal with the intricate topography. Each unit has a small individual roof, so the outlook became like a village that evokes a view of extending tiled roofs.

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.

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.
