An Icefjord Centre in Ilulissat will attract tourists to Greenland and contribute to our understanding of climate change. The Danish architectural firm Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter has designed the visionary building for the centre with respect of the unique, UNESCO-protected natural surroundings.

The vision of a world-class tourist attraction in Ilulissat has come one step closer to realization with the selection of Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter’s proposal for an Icefjord Centre. The centre will help develop Greenland’s tourism and will serve as a global portal to understanding the ice fjord and, not least, its culture and history as well as the dramatic melting of the Greenland ice sheet.  The parties behind the centre are the Greenland Government, Qaasuitsup Municipality and Realdania.

New Access and Columbarium in Madrid, Spain by Muka Arquitectura

The local goverment of Lozoya put us in charge of the intervention in the closing and enlargement of the Municipal Cemetery. We had to work on the separating element between, according to Platon, the visible world and the intelligible world, that is, the earthly world from the eternal one. The half-ruined clay wall which needed to be repaired separated both physically and visually the two different worlds, as if both of them could be understood through the wall.

Expansion of the Stadio Druso in Bolzano, Italy by gmp Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner

 
June 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: gmp Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner

The trend toward dedicated soccer stadiums is also finding acceptance in smaller, previously multifunctional venues. As in the larger arenas, stands bordering directly on the playing field – without a gap formed by a track – create a tighter atmosphere even on a smaller scale and, with today’s demand for differentiated spaces, also represent considerable economic benefits for operators. The reason for the redesign of the municipal Stadio Druso in Bolzano is to further FC Südtirol’s efforts to comply with the Italian Serie B standards.

The main idea for this house was to create a concavity to get a controlled view inside the lot.

The house is a small tribute to the pursuit of Mies Van der Rohe, where the transparency and the inner courtyards  were held.
