Library in Anzin, France by Dominique Coulon & Associés

 
May 2nd, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  Dominique Coulon & Associés

The building reveals its preciousness at first sight.  Its pure, sophisticated geometry situates it as a public building.  The deliberate areas of transparency reveal its content.  The reading rooms present the building to the town in the manner of an invitation.  The multimedia library is covered with large white veils that reflect the light.

Comandante Ferraz Antartic Station in Península Keller, Antarctica by Estudio 41

Article source: Estudio 41

In certain places around the world nature sometimes creates adverse conditions for the human body. In these places, thinking a building is almost like building a garment, an artifact that protects and comforts. It is a problem of technological performance, but must be combined with aesthetics. Achieving the human well being is more than working notions of comfort and security; it’s also working spaces in their perceptual and symbolic dimensions. A shelter, a safe place. The new home of Brazil in Antarctica. A place of protection and meeting of people for the production of scientific knowledge.That’s how is faced the task of designing the new Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Station.The void left by fire in 2012 loads of symbolism the importance of this new building, it represents the Brazilian presence in Antarctica as a possibility of scientific contribution along with the international community. It also represents an opportunity for technological development for Brazilian architecture and the domestic industry.
