“We were inspired by, among other things, the Rubik’s Cube, the structure made of cubes in a cube where individual parts can change positions. Visitors to our pavilion represent the mobile component, i.e. imaginary particles which can use the structure as a landscape with a view.”

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Article source: Lee Boyd

Lee Boyd has recently collaborated on the exciting new visitor centre for Beefeater Gin at their distillery in central London which now provides visitors an insight into the history of gin and an understanding of the process of gin making.  A bold new extension providing a point of entry to the centre, links the different parts of the distillery and allows visitors to move from the exhibition floor to the stills house without interrupting the day to day workings at Beefeater. Beefeater Gin is the world’s number one premium gin and has been made in the heart of London for over 150 years, the only international brand to have its distillery in the capital. Beefeater is uniquely placed to call itself the Home of Gin and tell the intriguing story of the entwined history of London and Gin.

Himalesque in Jomsom, Nepal by Archium

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Article source: Archium

Himalesque in the plateau of Nepal and against its backdrop of unlimited nature, was another solution to the local climate conditions. The local traditional boundary markers are constructed from spaces with a thick outer skin, in order to solve the condition of a plateau in a lump. I paid attention to the deconstruction of the thickness of the boundary wall I divided the wall of enclosed space which is separated from the outside according to functions.

The Elastic Perspective in Barendrecht, Netherlands by NEXT ARCHITECTS

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: NEXT ARCHITECTS

stair leading the visitor up to a height that allows an unhindered view of the horizon and the nearby skyline of Rotterdam. The path makes a continuous movement and thereby draws on the context of the heavy infrastructural surrounding of ring road and tram track. While a tram stop presents the end or the start of a journey, the route of the stairway is endless.

visitor centre: Emscher Village in Oberhausen, Germany by OOZE architects

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Article source: OOZE architects

The temporary Visitors Center for EMSCHERKUNST.2013 and the Art Camp for local art associations are made from re-used oversea containers which house the different programs. By keeping the layout strictly on ground level and referring to a path through a village, not only the space inside matters, but also the various in-between spaces, sheltered by a roof or open-air.
In this way a variety of social spaces are created while keeping the site fully permeable.

Geoglifos Of Pintados Visitor Center in TARAPACA REGION, CHILE by WILLIAM OBREGON

1. LOCAL UNDERSTANDING

THE DESERT LIVES

The word “emptyness” is the informal term that we use to refer to the absence of content of a container or place. For the architecture, probably for the most orthodox, it is the absence of artificial or natural references, where everything is in the habit of being sustained almost acts. The desert is always a challenge for the architecture and probably the most similar thing to nothing. The absence of modals forces to a major degree of search in this particular landscape, which will be able to be defined of many forms, but it will never be one “not place “.
