New Headquarters of the Territorial Support Center of the Geological Institute of Catalonia in Lleida, Spain by Oikosvia Arquitectura s.c.c.l

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: Oikosvia Arquitectura s.c.c.l

The facility is conceived as an abstraction of an “iron monolith”, compact and of pure shape, which represents in one of its sides a “balma” (in catalan, a type of small cave in the base of a rocky formation) which guides us to the inside.

It is formed by means of an exterior skin, the façade, formed by Weathering Steel plates perforated with little holes of different diameter. The plates reproduce a monochrome version of the geological map of the region.

Cultural Centre Casal Balaguer in Palma de Mallorca, Spain by Flores Prats Arquitectos & Duch-Pizá, Palma

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Article source: Flores Prats Arquitectos & Duch-Pizá, Palma

Casal Balaguer is a palace of the historic center of Palma, a flood over the centuries family home, starting in 1300, then in 1500 and finally in 1700, which now loses its household to be a public building, a cultural center for the entire city. To value the times contained in the building, without taking physical distance with the historical stages that have shaped its qualities, allows us to act without departing from him: if observation do not distinguish times, the action must not have distances.

MODERN ART MUSEUM OF ALICANTE in Spain by SANCHO-MADRIDEJOS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Article source: SANCHO-MADRIDEJOS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE 

This project emerges from two individual, singular points which propose a very well defined field of work from the outset:

  • On the one hand, this is a building for a previously established art collection from the 1950s-1970s, including the collection donated to the city by Spanish artist Eduardo Sempere. This collection consists of works by modern artists: Calder, Vasarely, Chillida, Julio González and Sempere himself.

TEACHING PAVILION AT ARRIXACA HOSPITAL in MURCIA, SPAIN by SANCHO-MADRIDEJOS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE

Friday, May 30th, 2014

Article source: SANCHO-MADRIDEJOS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE

The medicine Faculty completes the facilities on the Arrixaca Hospital grounds. The nature of the site and the brief give it a degree of independence from the rest of the precinct in both its use and character, eschewing the peculiar hospital image.

The project is understood as a neutral, compact, petrous box with four and two heights. Inwardly ‘projected void’ are used to tense the box and generate spaces in diverse scales and qualities. The vestibule space thus arises from the confrontation between two voids of a different nature, one measuring 15 x 15 x 15 m (interior) and the other 9 x 9 x 6 m (exterior) which compress and tense it vertically. The transition between the successive episodes: void (entrance space), vertical vestibule space and void (central patio), each one with its own properties, sets the main time and spatial theme of the project.

Article source: SANCHO-MADRIDEJOS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE

This design for a sports complex and an indoor swimming pool is the third in a series of sports projects that follow a common thread of operations around an initial concept of ‘constructing the void’, in resonance with the concept of the void in the plastic world constructed at the end of the 20th century.

MUSEO ARQUEOLÓGICO NACIONAL in Madrid, Spain by Frade Arquitectos

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Article source: Frade Arquitectos 

Two months ago, on March 31st, the opening ceremony of the new Museo Arqueológico Nacional took place. There is no doubt that it was an event that had been long waited for. A clear example of this, is the large amount of visitors that it has attracted during the first couple of weeks. A figure over 5000 visitors per day. Even though the museum has only been closed down for two and a half years out of the six that the construction lasted, it was clear to see that the re-opening generated a lot of expectation.
