The End to End Building in Melbourne, Australia by ITN Architects

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Article source: ITN Architects

The End To End building has recently opened its doors. It is architecture inspired by street culture comprising six new five storey commercial tenancies each with an elevator, decks and car spaces. It is impressively crowned by three recently retired, renovated Hitachi Met trains with panoramic views of Collingwood and beyond. Rolling Stock nostalgia appears at street level in solid railway track doors, sleeper canopies and train station platform façade panels. The building is the latest in a series of graffiti culture inspired buildings by Zvi Belling of ITN Architects.

PROJECTiONE was commissioned to complete two projects for the Evansville Museum of Arts History and Science as part of an expansion project that included a new entrance pavilion.

Theatre 95 in Cergy-Pontoise, France by gpaa

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Article source: GPAA

The challenges of the project

The contractor’s definition of the project is articulated around a close link between reshaping the Théâtre 95, outlining an urban morphology, and finding free spaces in the urban island.The theatre’s extension is framed by a dialectic vision of interactions between town and theatre: the theatre stretches beyond its limits while the town must find in it a porous space, a space of journeys, echoes, dreams, encounters and everyday life, devoted to contemporary modes of expression and deliberately placed at the very heart of the town.

RENOVA STORE & THEATRE in Torres Novas, Portugal by Paulo Henrique Durão, Architect

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: Paulo Henrique Durão, Architect

There was, from the beginning, the intent to work this project as a machine, a TIME CAPTURING MACHINE. This condition was naturally the result of the place, the context and the industrial spirit, that penetrated the imagination. Condition to which it was added the will to capture, within the project, time and its flow. A flow of time and light into the spaces that would say – the architecture captures time, architecture captures the flow of time.

Albi Grand Theatre in France by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Article source: Dominique Perrault Architecture

The Albi Grand Theatre is going to transform the texture of the city as well as its cultural influence.

This building appears as an outstanding architectural symbol, on the outskirts of the historic centre.

We have given priority to the presence of the Grand Theatre instead of the cinemas, in order to organize around it a network of public spaces and of cultural facilities. The Grand Theatre will be its centre.
