The Thinking Gallery Space provides rental services for exhibitions, parties, and classes.
Concretizing abstract thinking enables us to sketch outlines on paper. The orientations of thought are like angles and changes in light and shadow, and different people do not necessarily see details of pictures in the same way. Based on this, we derived a means by which to embody thought and created the Thinking Gallery Space, which allows us to enjoy the thinking process in a tranquil atmosphere.

The Gellerup area in the city of Aarhus is to be rethought. One of the ways to create more life and positive development in this troubled neighborhood is to move 950 municipal jobs to the center of the area. Arkitema Architects are winners of a PPP contest, in which the 23,000 m² building integrates workplaces and public functions as well as an entrepreneurial environment. The new building will be an icon that sets the standard for the revitalized Gellerup area.

Inessa Hansch worked on the project redevelopment of the public spaces and urban furniture of the point of the presqu’île de Caen (peninsula of Caen), where the Alexis-de-Tocqueville library, designed by OMA, has just been inaugurated. In conjunction with this project she also delivered a new space dedicated to boating activities.
Encircled by the Saint-Pierre basin, the maritime canal and the Victor-Hugo channel, the future Palais de Justice and the Alexis-de-Tocqueville library stand on the 11 hectares of a former wasteland at the far end of the Caen Peninsula.

With its proposal “Under one roof” White Arkitekter won the design competition for a new station and City Hall in the southern Swedish city of Växjö. As the motto suggests, the building gathers several functions in one volume and connects the city’s different parts. This new ‘living room’ is open, welcoming everyone from teenage girls and senior citizens to municipal employees and visitors. The building also creates a new silhouette in the city.

A line in the horizon submerged between the imposing Pyrenees, a line undercut in the immensity of the mountains, a line embedded in the landscape that finishes an extension of the mountain range and that in turn acts like the public space, as a place between mountains, as an observatory of the mountain chain that envelops the tiny principality of Andorra, a line that emerges from the rocks and becomes a vain that frames an untamed nature and turns it into landscape and endows weightlessness to the humanized space, a space that connects the exterior with the interior and culminates in surface, a surface that is a nucleus of cultural and urban events, such as sports whose practice is one of the most representative manifestations of the human being.

A new trade exhibition and congress center has been completed in Lianyungang, China to a design by architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp). The project was subject to an international competition, which was won by gmp. Situated in an urban development area between the city and the sea, the four large exhibition halls surround the congress area in the center of the building. The facades with their vertical incisions create the image of a barcode as a symbol of trade and commerce.

The tender for the end building on Stationsplein (Station square) in Delft was won by Smit’s Bouwbedrijf BV|Vink Bouw Nieuwkoop BV. Studioninedots was responsible for the architecture.
Centrally located in Nieuw Delft, this lively place creates space for meeting, knowledge exchange and innovation: the DNA of Delft. The strength of this robust complex called ‘Antoni’ lies in the physical connection of the dynamic surroundings with an urban, mixed-use function that incorporates exhibition and meeting spaces, a hotel with restaurant, workspaces, retail and apartments. Integrated underneath the building will be a new public parking facility for 2.400 bicycles.
The construction agreement between the development group and the municipal developer Ontwikkelingsbedrijf Spoorzone Delft was signed on 21 December 2016.

A dynamic team of architects, designers and consultants are celebrating the completion of the £22m cultural hub project, The Curve, located in the centre of Slough, Berkshire, UK. The Curve is the flagship public building and the key community amenity in the on-going regeneration of Slough’s town centre, where over £45m of public investment has already been spent or committed to create an entirely new commercial district – The Heart of Slough. Housing a library, a 280 seat multi-purpose performance venue, and spaces for council meetings and exhibitions, the 4,500 sq m building consolidates disparate community functions and registrar services across the centre of Slough.
