BRIC Art Space in Beijing, China by maison h

Monday, May 21st, 2018

Article source: maison h

This art space takes the metaphysical blank space in abstract paintings by contemporary Chinese artists as its starting point. It uses natural light, simple black strokes and translucent materials to create a fuzzy, dream-like physical realm. The project is located within Beijing’s 798 Arts District, as a renovation of a former factory, originally build in the 1970’s during Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward.

Magazzino Italian Art in Cold Spring, New York by MQ Architecture

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Article source: MQ Architecture

Magazzino Italian Art is a private initiative conceived by Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu to house their collection of postwar Italian Art. The commission consisted in a full renovation of an existing 11,000 square-foot building and an additional 14,000 square feet of new construction. The existing L-shaped structure was erected in 1964 as a distribution center for dairy products and surrounded by loading docks and canopies. The new space needed a taller clearance, since some of the collection’s pieces were large, as well as highly controlled natural light.

Creating Place with Art in Toronto, Canada by II BY IV DESIGN

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Article source: v2com

Creating a sense of place, art can bolster an interior by enhancing its overall atmosphere. Art can arouse one’s curiosity and draw you in. And experienced in relation to its setting, it can positively affect your mood. Art can also set the tone for a theme, thereby shaping one’s impression of a space.

Art requires an audience to make it complete. With its natural ability to slow one’s progression through space and encourage interactions, art often promotes community connectivity. In a study by the Knight’s Foundation that surveyed 43,000 people, it was found that aesthetics of a place is indeed linked to one’s attachment to their community.

Tacoma Art Museum Haub Galleries in Washington by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig 

In 2012 the Tacoma Art Museum received a gift of Western art, creating an opportunity to feature two unique collections – Western art and their existing contemporary art collections–together in one building. The design brief for the new addition and remodel to house the collections was: 1) better announce the museum to the community; 2) design a new wing that is sympathetic to its surrounding historic context; 3) create a public living room that offers transparency to the street, and; 4) resolve an overly complex and obscured entry sequence.
