Article source: Asymptote Architecture

Asymptote’s design for a new Center of Performing Arts for the city of Sejong in South Korea celebrates the cities emergence and growth as a place of stature and culture. The proposal calls for an architecture centered around notions of contemporary urbanism as expressed through a distinctive and unique envelope and object-bulling perched on an open site that connects the city, a park and nearby waterway.

North Carolina Museum of Art Sculpture Park Pavilion in Raleigh by Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Article source: Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

The pavilion is an outdoor classroom and component of the North Carolina Museum of Art’s Sculpture Park. The structure is wrapped in varying widths of horizontal, perforated metal bands, which offer experiences that change with the seasons, the light, and the vantage point of the viewer .The pavilion’s metallic “skin” reflects its natural surroundings by taking on the colors of the grass and sky or, at times, completely disappearing into a moire pattern of light and shadow.

Fayetteville Festival Park Performance Pavilion in North Carolina by Clark Nexsen

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Clark Nexsen

The Performance Pavilion is the major architectural element in the overall plan of the new Festival Park in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It is comprised of a raised, covered stage, and back-of-house functions in a simple, rectangular extrusion. It is intended that, on a daily basis, the pavilion appears more like a park folly than an empty stage. To this end, the back-of-house functions slide to one side, allowing an open view through to the backdrop of existing trees. Operable panels, which can be retracted from behind a scrim wall, create a backdrop and crossover when performances are taking place.

Re-Imagining Seward Park Redevelopment (SPURA) on the Lower East Side, New York

Recent news coverage for the 7-acre parcel, Manhattan’s biggest undeveloped,  publicly owned development site south of 96th Street, has provided the chance to contemplate many important urban issues.

Firstly, are we taking full advantage of this great opportunity to develop a vast land in the heart of Manhattan, or just limiting our imagination under current NYC zoning resolution (which is 50 years old)? Secondly, is the hot debate over big box retailers heading to the right direction?

  • Project: Manhattan Mountain
  • Location: Seward Park Urban Renewal Site(SPURA) in Lower East Side, New York

  • Year: 2012
