Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, California by Daniel Libeskind

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Article source: Daniel Libeskind

With the opening of its new building in June 2008, the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) ushered in a new chapter in its 20-plus year history of engaging audiences and artists in exploring contemporary perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art and ideas. The new facility is a lively center where people of all ages and backgrounds can gather to appreciate art, share diverse perspectives, and engage in hands-on activities. Inspired by the Hebrew phrase “l’chaim” (to life), the building is a physical embodiment of the CJM’s mission to bring together tradition and innovation in an exploration of the relevance of Jewish values and traditions in the 21st century.  The new 63,000-square-foot facility, located on Mission Street between 3rd & 4th Streets in downtown San Francisco, enables the Museum to present an expanded array of engaging programming including art exhibitions, live music, film screenings, lectures and discussions, and educational activities for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Atelier Tenjinyama in Takasaki, Japan by Ikimono Architects

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Article source: Ikimono Architects

This building was born to be able to hold it to prevent rain and wind.
This building is made only on four pieces of walls and roofs. The primitive constitution showed the possibility “that a person seemed to be able to spend somehow”. In fact, it rises in joy and presence of mind and discovery here.

Article source: Olafur Eliasson and Kjetil Thorsen

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007 is designed by the internationally acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson and the award-winning Norwegian architect Kjetil Thorsen, of the architectural practice Snøhetta. This timberclad structure resembles a spinning top and brings a dramatic vertical dimension to the traditional single-level pavilion. A wide spiralling ramp makes two complete turns, allowing visitors to ascend from the Gallery lawn to the highest point for views across Kensington Gardens as well as a bird’s eye view of the chamber below.

Domus Technica – Immmergas Center for Advanced Training in Brescello, Italy by Iotti + Pavarani Architetti

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Article source: Iotti + Pavarani Architetti

Immergas has extended its research and production field to new generation technologies, related to renewable resources exploitation (like solar thermal, photovoltaic and heat pumps); the new Center for Advanced Training contains teaching rooms and showrooms where technicians and professionals may be trained and updated on both implanting and installation technologies tied to productions based on renewable resources. So the building’s outline is that of an “open laboratory”- a space in which one works and is received.

Static Quarry in Gunma, Japan by Ikimono Architects

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Article source: Takashi Fujino / Ikimono Architects

The neighbor is one of the environments, too

I intended to make a building like the small city.
Originally, a human being is a creature living in the crowd. Nevertheless it is said that most family types are single life households in present Japan. The person keeps the balance while going back and forth in a personal domain like the house and the state of the crowd like the society. Can the apartment \there is society in the immediate neighbor of a personal domain\ become city life in microcosm?

Article source: Frederico Valsassina

The city is a mark of multiple times and appears spatially as an entity in permanent mutation. To the existent urban structures others are added, adapted to the successive ways of “living”, promoting the revival of obsolete situations and the framing of records from the past.
