Opusztaszer Visitor Center in Hungary by Ivanka Factory & Design Services

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Article source: Ivanka Factory & Design Services

OPUSTERRA PANEL was created with a very specific design intent – to create a PANEL that resembles being pulled out from the ground in one, swift move, evoking earthiness, natural aesthetics, and ancient materiality.

This development aimed to create a unique, qualitative architecture with a new and multifunctional visitor center. The architectural work was lead by István MURKA, who reflects to the local traditions in this work. This bipolar building is closely tied to the materials using and the traditional construction solutions of this area. The process involved developing a unique manufacturing process, where the high-tech material of IVANKA is applied by hand into a specialized cast, and the result is a PANEL that is never the same as any other. The PANELS are more than 3 meters long. The resulting surface of the large format is naturally raw, aggregate-revealing, shows ample aggregates, and is reminiscent of the layers of the soil as it emerges from the deep.

Article source: PIETRO CARLO PELLEGRINI ARCHITETTO

Promoted by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers for of the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, “Sites of Memory” was a project aimed at rehabilitating several historically significant sites across the peninsula and making them again part of a tangible collective memory. The rehabilitation of the nineteenth century Arbuticci Fort in Caprera, up to the Second World War the headquarters of the military operational defence base of the Italian Navy, was one of such plans. The restoration and preservation design of a site on the island where Garibaldi spent the last years of his life was developed as a dialogue between a contemporary approach and the context’s historical and architectural tradition.

Beigang Cultural Center in Yunlin, Taiwan by MAYU architects+

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Article source: MAYU architects+ 

Beigang Township is the epicenter for the Taiwanese worshipping of Mazu, a Chinese sea goddess. Therefore, the Beigang Chao-Tien Temple for Mazu and its surrounding form a core area with local historic significance. However, Beigang as well as other cities in the western plain of Taiwan faces the same suburban sprawl, exacerbated by disorderly building development resulting from the lack of a cohesive planning guidance. The project site itself is located at the northwestern corner of the 90-years-old Bei-Chen Elementary School campus, sitting right on the axis of the sprawling expansion.
