NEW NEUE GALERIE – MUSEUM OF THE 20TH CENTURY in Berlin, Germany by MCKNHM Architects and Tinkercraft

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Article source: MCKNHM Architects

The building assignment, calling for a new element between “icons of 20th century architectural history,“ Mies Van Der Rohe’s Neuer National Gallery and Hans Scharoun’s Berlin Philharmonics among other listed buildings of high cultural and architectural significance, requires both a sensitive and strong architectural as well as urban intervention. To us, composition, clarity and austerity all coalesce to form an appropriate response, situated at the nexus of the urban fabric at Berlin’s Cultural Forum.

Kleine Rittergasse 11 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany by Franken Architekten

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Article source: Franken Architekten

Good architecture takes its environment into account, particularly surrounding buildings. In Frankfurt am Main, Franken Architekten has taken a literal approach through a digitally drawn façade for a new home and studio in old town Sachsenhausen.

Frankfurt’s Alt-Sachsenhausen is a neighborhood that, according to the city, urgently needed to change. Until the 1990s, traditional cider houses dominated the area valued for its entertainment and nightlife, but it was heavily run down in recent years. The city created a preservation statute that placed premiums on the conversion of the gastronomy establishments to housing and other uses. A small scene of art galleries, ad agencies, and fashion and designers shops sprung up in the area, leading some people to call the district SoMa (South of Main), inspired by New York’s famous SoHo (South of Houston) area.

Kindergarten in Koblenz, Germany by Herrmanns-Architekten

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: Herrmanns-Architekten 

Explanations about the construction of a kindergarten in Lahnstein

The curved building for a new kindergarten is to be erected as a wooden structure with a formwork of vertical wood panels. The intention of the architects is that the new  building is self-consciously integrated into the urban environment.

Especially when building for children, other aspects than usual have to be incorporated into the design process. Who says that a building must inevitably always be designed with the rigid cartesian axes (height / width / depth) as a crate. This is the dynamic structure of the organic building with its curved ground plan for breaking open the rigid geometric shapes.

Between the city centre and the Rhine River

The former railway head office is on Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer immediately opposite the Rhine River and in immediate vicinity of Cologne’s main railway station, the cathedral and the city centre. There are visual links to the cathedral, the bridge Hohenzollernbrücke, the opposite riverbank as well as beyond the Rhine bend to the more distant office buildings and the Cologne Trade Fair Centre, Koelnmesse. Clearly visible from the other side of the river, Neue Direktion Köln is an important landmark within Cologne’s urban landscape.

Renovation of Obermaintherme in Bad Staffelstein, Germany by Lucem Lichtbeton

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The public swimming pool “Obermaintherme” in the Bavarian city Bad Staffelstein is Bavaria’s hottest and strongest saltwater emerging from 1600 m deep drilled spring. More than 1.600 m² water surface and more than 15.000 m² sauna are inviting to relaxing and recovering.

Within a large renovation process of some areas in the main bath hall, the inside pool has been renewed, too. A new highlight has been designed with a cave in the shape of a salt crystal made with LUCEM translucent concrete, allowing the new shell to light in different colours along with the water. This ambient lighting concept, along with a special sound system in the Cave integrated with the massage jet nozzles in the water, creates a wellness feeling for everybody inside this installation. The light shines through the surface of the translucent concrete with more than 2 million fiber optics.

The State Museum of Egyptian Art and The University of Film and Television in Munich, Germany by Peter Böhm Architekten

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Peter Böhm Architekten

The extraordinary urban development with the large free square in front of the Old Pinakothek made it possible to close this square with a generous, quiet building in the south, which takes up approximately the proportion of the Old Pinakothek, vis-à-vis in the north, where the new building lies. In accordance with the lateral emphasis of the Old Pinakothek with its space-limiting risalits and avenue, is the entrance to the University of Film and Television located in the east of the new building and in the west the entrance to the State Museum of Egyptian Art, which is buried like an archaeological excavation underneath the green forecourt.

BSU Hamburg in Germany by Sauerbruch Hutton architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: NBK Keramik GmbH

The second largest city in Germany is often referred to as the “gateway to the world”. The Free and Hanseatic City has the largest and most important commercial port in the country and acts as a transport hub for ships from all over the world. Important sea routes to the North and East open out from Hamburg, and major import and export companies, forwarding and shipping companies are based here.

The city on the river Elbe with its green areas and bodies of water, its architecturally impressive cityscape and its Hanseatic flair is also one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. A lively art and cultural scene, shopping and entertainment districts and not least the lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere explain its appeal. And Hamburg is growing – for years its population has been on the rise, and the forecasts suggest a further increase, which needs to be reflected in the city’s building and transport infrastructure.
