A Pound of flesh for 50p in south London, England by Alex Chinneck

‘A Pound of Flesh for 50p’, by Alex Chinneck is a life size construction of a house made entirely from wax bricks that has been gradually melting since October, as part of London Bankside’s MERGE Festival, celebrating art and science. The house is due to finish melting this week and will leave a pile of wax with just the roof on the pavement. The artwork explores the science of melting points and celebrates the history of an area that once housed the largest candle-making factory in Southwark. Architectural features such as double-glazed windows, drainpipes and a tiled roof will enhance the installation and bring it to life.

THE COCONUT LODGE in Hong Kong, China by OVA Studio Ltd

Harvested from plantations that procure income to millions of people, coconut wood is a sustainable product by excellence. The cycle of coconut production, felling/processing and re-plantation, guaranties a sound renewable supply that doesn’t impact the environment. After being used all their life coconuts, the trees become senile around 60 years old. They can then be cut and used for construction, furniture and decoration, which will constitute a windfall profit for the farmer and an excellent material for sustainable Architecture.

MADRID Digital Arts Museum – SECOND PRIZE WINNER

SECOND PRIZE
“LACORRALA” by Spanish team Arch. Vicente Hernandez Vaquero / Silvia Rodriguez Iglesias, Coruña – Spain

The new Digital Arts Museum of Lavapiés incorporates an existing and characteristic element of the neighborhood: “the corrala”. Through this, past and present are joined together in order to guarantee the historic memory.
The program is divided in two harmonious volumes with the surrounding, connected by the new interpretation of the corrala: LACORRALA. This element generates an interstitial void in between to allow the public access to culture and light. The courtyard captures natural light during the day and filters it towards interior spaces, which require a controlled light in order to take care of the exhibition room needs. At sunset the light box illuminates the outskirts of Lavapiés, turning in the hub of neighborhood life.

MADRID Digital Arts Museum – FIRST PRIZE WINNER

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.

MADRID Digital Arts Museum – THIRD PRIZE WINNER

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.
