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.

REFURBISHMENT OF 906 SCHOOL in Barcelona, Spain by H ARQUITECTES

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Article source: H ARQUITECTES

Strategies

The school is located in the urban city center of Sabadell, in a corner shaped by two buildings aligned to the street. Both volumes create a wide courtyard with a sports center located in the basement.

The proposal involves only the oldest building (1959) which hosts the pre-school classrooms and few outdoor spaces.

The essential strategy consists on taking advantage of the huge potential of the original building, both the constructed surfaces as well as the useful spaces.

The Pavilion of Canopies in West Bengal, India by Abin Design Studio

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Article source: Abin Design Studio

Built for accommodating the activities of a religious festival for a tribal community that resides in the lush countryside west of Kolkata, the driving concept behind the design was to celebrate tribal life, rituals and the symbiotic relationship with the forest. The fascinating surroundings of the Pavilion of Canopies are reflected in its design. An earnest attempt has been made to raise awareness about the enrichment and conservation of forestlands and the communities residing within them by highlighting their lives within the forest. The design experience was to abstract the journey through a lush forest of canopies and arrive at the sight of glorious divinity. This was similar to the ancient Indian ritual of undertaking a pilgrimage through the forest to seek divine enlightenment. Since the site is also surrounded by dense greenery the design seeks to formally reflect this contextual characteristic.
