The Slabs – Italian Pavilion Expo 2015 in Milan, Italy by MenoMenoPiu Architects + BE.ST Architect

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: MenoMenoPiu Architects + BE.ST Architect

Our proposal for the Italian Pavilion at the Milan 2015 Expo is a light cage where the technical innovation is embedded within the structure: revolutionary glass columns sustain traditional  slabs clad in marble. The building is simple and elegant in its structural system. Marble and glass are intertwined expressing the Italian architectural tradition of proportion and elegance.

Nature makes its way through the thin marble: tress are allowed to grow tall through holes in the slabs, recalling the central role of nature in a healthy feeding culture. These holes let the light from above reach the ground level where the covered plaza stands. The latter is trimmed by a thin water layer which creates small “islands” and a mirror-like surface. Water and shadow cool down the temperature of the plaza so offering a shelter from the sunny space before the circular pond at the end of the Cardo.

Newark Visitor’s Center in Newark, New Jersey by Baer, Shifman-Nathan Architects

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Article source: Baer, Shifman-Nathan Architects

Designing the Newark Visitor’s Center meant bridging between opposing forces. On the one hand, there was a need to address the adjacency to the metropolitan center of NYC and its main transportation Hub – the Penn Station. This perspective implied the creation of a vibrant architectural event, which is capable of containing the centrality of Newark and of the reality of New Jersey as one of the most populated states in the US. On the other hand, there was a strong pull to blend with an image of a Garden State, or at least create a gateway to suburban America, which is perceived as a place of refuge, away from the metropolitan intensity.
