Mathematics: The Winton Gallery in London, UK by Zaha Hadid Architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

It is a wonderful coincidence that we started work designing the Science Museum’s Mathematics Gallery in the bicentennial year of the birth of Ada Lovelace, a pioneering woman in the history of computers and of ‘poetic science’. Her inspirational influence on our approach to the design of the project, from inception to completion, cannot be overstated. Just as her Notes unravelled the abstract world of the analytical engine and its logic to generations beyond, we hope the design of the Mathematics Gallery complements the curatorial ambitions to inspire and engage further generations with the instinctive and physical aspects of mathematics. Collections like those housed within the Science Museum in London are instrumental in allowing the human mind to explore the many dimensions of innovation. The new group of objects on display in the Gallery is meticulously curated to narrate seemingly everyday moments in innovation driven by mathematics.

Astronomical Observatory YEPUN in Bío Bío Region, Chile by SUSANA HERRERA & FACTORIA

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: SUSANA HERRERA & FACTORIA

The ARCHITECTURE AS A TRANSFORMING AGENT

The reconciliation between tourism and communities has transformed Lake Lanalhue into a natural, economic and political resource. We are aware of being part of  our own time and place, in the Arauco province  where tense ancestral and  historical demands are taking place,  a complex period in many aspects, and instead of avoiding the implications that this entails, we decided to face this period by contributing from what we know best, and this is to act from within the territory with the architecture that makes us the most sense, that is the architecture whose action transforms and summons the encounter of worlds that at times seem so distant, but that share a specific place of the planet, a common place in the Cosmos.

Science Island: An Emphatic Approach to Nature in Kaunas, Lithuania by Alper Derinbogaz

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

Article source: Alper Derinbogaz

Science Island is a project in Kaunas, Lithuania designed as an icon of the paradigm between the natural landscape, mankind’s intrinsic curiosity of the complexity of the universe, and the responsibility human have within it by Alper Derinbogaz. Its ultimate aim is to achieve a high quality physical and intellectual access, establishing itself as a landmark institution in the dissemination of knowledge about the world, and have its architectural syntax play an active role in the interpretation of that knowledge.

The National Science and Innovation Centre in Kaunas, Lithuania by Architects of Invention

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: Architects of Invention 

Cityscape – urban integration

This proposed design for Science Island creates a marked but porous division between a newly created urban environment and existing parklands. In keeping with the Science Centre’s emphasis on environmental matters, this design provides a natural barrier across the island to preserve the purity of the park. The orientation of the building allows for a fluency of movement via bridges – the existing pedestrian bridge and a new south-bank bridge – connecting the island to the old-town and expected future developments in South Kaunas. To minimise car traffic, we have kept the Science Centre as close to the Žalgiris Arena as possible. Since most visitors to Žalgiris Arena arrive in the evening from 20h, we propose that this existing car park be available to Science Centre visitors during its daytime opening hours. Deliveries will be restricted to the East side of the island. The building’s main principle is to divide the island into two parts – the landscape and the hardscape.

Life Science Centre of Vilnius University in Lithuania by Architektūros linija

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Article source: Architektūros linija

The key idea of the Life Science Centre architecture are the science and teaching complex modules forming the public space layout and comprising the integral whole like different cells of the matter. Cube-shaped volumes in open spaces of Saulėtekis, reiterating the natural context and building a humanist, traditional urban structure characteristic of the city of Vilnius, resemble a feature of the historical Vilnius University ensemble – a cosy inner courtyard. The volumes comprising the square perimeter and the entrance to the building are moved out over the glass vestibule and the merging space unites the areas of the main lobby, the courtyard and the passage, seamlessly linking them with the environment.
