Grand Théâtre de Québec in Canada by Lemay and Atelier 21

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Article source: v2com

An innovative Canadian first for a heritage preservation project of its size, the new glass envelope that will protect the Grand Théâtre de Québec is a Lemay and Atelier 21 consortium design and the winning solution in the cultural complex’s architectural competition.

Faced with the severe deterioration of its concrete envelope, made of prefabricated panels, the Grand Théâtre de Québec needed an intervention to ensure its longevity. The team’s proposed solution was holistic, delicate, transparent and understated. The jury was charmed by the concept of a protective shell around architect Victor Prus’ creation, a brutalist icon inaugurated in 1971.

The Flow / CECU – Euroregional Center of Urban Cultures in Lille, France by atelier d’architecture King Kong

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Article source: atelier d’architecture King Kong 

In its cultural development policy framework and renovation of the Moulins neighbourhood, the City of Lille started in 2009 the building of a new cultural equipement that could enable the development of Moulins’s existing Maison Folie, that lacked specific spaces to carry out all of its projects, and to create a Euroregional Center of Urban Cultures (The Flow – House of Hip-Hop), a structure made necessary by the importance of activities linked to that practice that had until then no place to unfold. The importance of this project justified its integration in a site close to the town center. The will to unite these two equipments in a same place presented numerous advantages for both structures, including the possibility to ensure de facto synergy, their objectives being common. The Maison Folie, that had already conquered its own public in five years of existence, was forced to refuse or postpone numerous projects (dance, theatre, plastic and visual arts) due to lack of space.

Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse, France by betec Lighting AG

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: betec Lighting AG

When lighting large paintings with strong frames, a large picture light is required for optical balance between the image and the light. Introducing “Maximus”, which can be adjusted to fit pictures with widths of up to two metres. An additional feature of using the “Maximus” for lighting paintings or museums is that it produces ambient lighting. Most of the light is directed towards the painting, however, some unavoidable stray light fills the room with an unnoticeable background brightness, which is good for our wellbeing.
