In Reykjavik, Iceland capital they wanted to build a big new hotel in Ingolfstorg, a public existing plaza in Kvosin, the city historical  center, very close to the Iceland Parliament.  The program was asking for a way too big building that couldn´t work well with the existing city pattern. There are no big buildings  on this area.  OOIIO Architecture team decided to break the big hotel into 2 hotels. This decision make all the program to work much better,  not only because the size of the buildings is more suitable with the historical center, also because the client could build now the  buildings in different phases, and if he wants, use building A as a 5 stars hotel and building B as a 4 stars hotel, so the scheme is  more  flexible for its economical benefits.

Museum of Polish History in Warsaw, Poland by Zerafa Architecture Studio

 
May 9th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

The challenge of creating a new Museum of Polish History today involves considering the historical relationship between a National identity, collective memory and a culture’s traditions within a modern global context.  The design of the museum and the crafting of a user experience that communicates an essential spirit of Polish Identity and is also meaningful to visitors from around the world represent a universal challenge of our time. We believe the solution lies within the power of history to illuminate, teach and improve relationships through the celebration of ideas and human aspirations. The collective memory of a Nation is quite often defined by those memories enshrined in national monuments and in particular, those not publically memorialized.  The idea of a “collected memory”, one that is inherently fragmented and individual in character in relation to “collective psychology” that represents a group’s common ideas and aspirations is the starting point for our design.

MVTP (Metropolitan Vertical Theme Park) by Ju-Hyun Kim, AIA

 
May 9th, 2012 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Ju-Hyun Kim, AIA

Idea of MVTP(Metropolitan Vertical Theme Park) started with raising 2 questions:

01. Do we still need to keep the century-old prototype of (subway-located) theme parks?

Suburb-located theme parks have been by-product of automobile-centered society. Indescribably horrible traffic congestion and huge hard-scaped (Hot asphalt) parking lots and has become a constant problem in the towns where these theme parks have located. Theme parks such as Six Flags attracted all kinds of undesirable sprawl to suburbs. In the contemporary society where zero-car, zero carbon is highly valued, these theme parks have been located at the opposite side of eco-sensitive society.
