PALÄON (Research and Experience Centre Schöningen Spears)
The Schöningen Spears, approximately 300,000 years old, are the oldest preserved hunting weapons of mankind discovered until now. Visible from far away, the sculptural building of the PALÄON now towers over the significant archeological site at the edge of the brown coal mine. Designed by Holzer Kobler Architekturen, the building stands as a landmark with the hilly landscape mirrored in its reflective façade. The exhibition forms the heart of the project, which presents the original excavation area in a spectacular manner.

Schwabisch Media in Ravensburg, Germany by Wiel Arets Architects

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

This new building is an office for Schwäbisch Media (Swabian Media), a publishing company active in many facets of traditional and new media. Six protruding glass-walled cubes define and compose the project, with their proportions and dimensions based on the surrounding traditional German fachwerk villas in the city of Ravensburg. These six working areas have been stacked on top of a transparent ground floor, through which access is afforded to each, creating a new urban typology in the center of this medieval city. As the company’s activities were previously scattered throughout the Upper Swabia region, this building brings all 350 employees under one roof.

The initialignitionfor the design of the Museum of the Bavarian history is a seamless integration into the UNESCO World Heritage site, the old town of Regensburg. Derived from the existing roofscape the building references to history and the existence. In order to create a haptic integration, the facade is classic and modern at the same time, made out of bright, whitewashed bricks.

Kulturbau ‘Forum Confluentes’ in Koblenz, Germany by Benthem Crouwel Architects

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

Article source: Benthem Crouwel Architects

The project started as a won competition for the redevelopment of the “Zentralplatz”. The program included approximately 20.000 m² of retail space, urban functions and a 6.000 m² square.

Urban design concept

The complete program is split into two volumes, separated by the Zentralplatz. This separation of functions allows for two autonomous and highly functional buildings, which can develop long-term and independently. Because of the precise positioning of the buildings and their outline, the pedestrian flows are organized in an effective and logical way.

The aim of this project was the conversion of the existing building into a cultural and social centre, which would provide it with institutional representation. The outset was a dark, half-buried building that lacked quality spaces, placed at the interior of a block in Girona. The vast remodelling program included a 180-seat auditorium, an exhibition room, a computer room and an administrative area, among other spaces.
