MADRID Digital Arts Museum – FIRST PRIZE WINNER

 
November 18th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ctrl+Space Architectural

FIRST PRIZE
“Urban Interface” by Arch. Michelangelo Vallicelli / Lorenzo Sant’Andrea / Nicolò Troianiello, Rome – Italy

If we had to think completely in utopian terms and not responding to any specific building requirements, the solution we would better strive would have been a completely open space not being an architectural enclosure with the external environment. We would have hoped that its contents could be completely stored within a server connected to the Internet, open to anyone, anywhere. Rather being only an artworks container it could be an ‘interface’. Our project instead aims to be a ‘meta-museum’, which allow individuals anywhere in the world to upload and submit their own installations, video documentation, discussions, and that through the museum’s envelope, be returned to the city and to the local reality of Lavapiés. Being as a large public display, it can also resubmit information in its virtual site and the world wide web.

THIRD PRIZE
Project by Polish team: Arch. Robert Barelkowski / Leszek Chlasta / Adam Tuszynski / Mateusz Jarzabkiewicz, from Armageddon Biuro Projektowe, Poznan – Poland

Where should digital art be presented? We believe it should become a place merging the analog with the virtual, a place allowing for constant redefinition of how digital can interact with the physical. We are strongly convinced DAMM cannot replicate the typology of a typical museum, providing a flexible open source experiencing of the art.
Outer skin makes it an institution active regarding of whether building is open or closed, interactive screens allow for exploration, contemplation, research or play.
[…] Open floor as well as suspended grid gives infinite options to rearrange, at the same time provide human-responsive surfaces to reflect the visitors’ behavior.

HONORABLE MENTION 

  • Architects: Ctrl+Space Architectural
  • Project: MADRID Digital Arts Museum – IDEAS COMPETITION – Honorable Mention
  • Location: MADRID, Spain

Project by Polish team: Arch. Michał Sapko / Patrycja Stołtny / Brygida Zawadzka / Duong Vu Hong

The main concept bases on focusing on the principal features of digital art and transforming them into architecture. […] By using the digital screens, introducing the flexible areas – thanks to fractal structure and steel construction – as well as interactive expositions we want to show the importance of modern technology in contemporary museum design. Additionally, the work of the museum states in line with sustainable policy.
The building is divided into two parts: one solid, including the museum zones and the other – transparent, 5-storey open space, which is the extension of the nearby street. Newly created public space invites visitors to the museum and can be important according to the organization of city events, as well as a catalyst of culture in Madrid.

The Bibliothèque du Boisé in Québec, Canada by Consortium Labonté Marcil / Cardinal Hardy / Eric Pelletier architectes

The Bibliothèque du Boisé aims to become a place fostering a feeling of belonging, promoting exploration and discovery. Located between Thimens Boulevard and the Marcel-Laurin Park, it covers a surface area of 5,000 m² and is integrated into the site by drawing on its major elements. This isn’t a project about architecture alone: it’s also about landscape. As such, the building connects the city with the surrounding landscape, and serves as a point of connection that allows users to explore its site—inside and outside, from Boulevard Thimens as well as from the park. Visitors will discover the building by approaching it from a variety of spaces both intimate and dramatic, spaces that, by offering a variety of access pathways, set the stage for the site as well as for its users.
