Centre Culturel de Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal, Canada by Atelier Big City

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Article source: Atelier Big City

The CCNDG is the last project on the Benny Farm, a redeveloped WW2 veterans housing complex in the NDG borough. CCNDG is the last piece placed in a decades-long story of social activism, memory and collaborative design process that consistently rejected expediency for an expanding and inclusive idea of community. The project was the winning scheme for an architectural competition held in 2010. The community required a 21st century ‘third space’ library, one that was more socially and digitally accessible and engaged.

Connecting Space HK in Hong Kong by Parallel Lab

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Article source: Parallel Lab

The challenge of designing a space for the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in Hong Kong was to offer the most flexible framework for a variety of activities such as workshops, exhibitions, performances and others to happen. The rough concrete shell was therefore planned as a adaptive spatial infrastructure. To reinforce the concept of a “tunnel” between Zurich and Hong Kong and invite the neighbourhood to interact with the space the façade is worked out as a porous interface. Instead of a fix facade two layers of polycarbonate roller shutters create a translucent buffer zone that can alternately or simultaneously lift up and fully open the end of the “tunnel” to the street. The 25m long room can on the other hand be configured in a sequence of different sized spaces.

Boiler House Conversion in Libčice nad Vltavou, Czech Republic by Atelier Hoffman

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Article source: Atelier Hoffman

From the pile of ashes and rubble. An original conversion of a former boiler house into a multi-functional leaseable area for cultural, corporate and social events, with an ambition to become the heart of a future arts & culture district existing in a symbiotic relationship with traditional crafts and technological innovation and preserving, in a unique way, the industrial phase of the city’s development which has significantly influenced the historical context of the place in question. It is another important project contributing to the gradual regeneration of the former large industrial estate of ŠROUBÁRNA (Screw Factory) in Libčice nad Vltavou near Prague which provided people with jobs and a place to live and became a bearer of near 150-year tradition of know-how and craftsmanship in the field of screw and wire production. The brownfield, which currently operates at a fraction of its former capacity, is thus being revived with a plan to preserve and develop the tradition of crafts and manufacturing. The boiler house, together with the already iconic industrial gem of Uhelný Mlýn (the Coal-Grinding Mill), are the beginning of the new UM Valley located in a meander of the Vltava river. It represents a precedent for many other still dilapidated sites.

Luminous Drapes in Kuwait City, Kuwait by STUDIO TOGGLE LLC.

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Article source: STUDIO TOGGLE LLC. 

Studio Toggle was invited by Nuqat, a nonprofit organization based in Kuwait to create an outdoor space for their cultural forum “The Human Capital 2018”. The location given was the outdoor plaza of the newly opened Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre in Kuwait City. The design of the pavilion stemmed from a desire to create a lightweight, soft and malleable space habitable in novel ways. The pavilion is meant to be colonized based on the activities that it will accommodate. These activities were analyzed and broken down into its anthropometric parameters.

9-9 bis Transformation of a Former Mine Site Into a Cultural Complex in Oignies, France by Herault Arnod Architects

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

The Oignies coal mine closed in 1990, leaving a whole population and its industrial mining heritage in disarray (pithead buildings, industrial buildings, head frames). The project to reinstate this territory marked by decades of mining operations, began in 2005 with the competition mounted by the Hénin-Carvin Intermunicipal Council (14 municipalities, 125,000 population). Hérault Arnod’s competition-winning project proposes a program based on music and sound, in memory of the massive noise produced by this industrial site when in production, now fallen silent in its abandonment.

Théodore Gouvy Theatre in Freyming-Merlebach, France by Dominique Coulon & associés

Friday, April 6th, 2018

Article source: Dominique Coulon & associés

Freyming-Merlebach is a town with a substantial industrial past, in a part of Lorraine that developed in the 19th century, driven by the coalmining industry.

Since the closure of the mines in the 1990s, this part of north-eastern France has seen a sharp increase in unemployment, and culture is seen as one possibility for resolving the accompanying social and economic difficulties in the town, as has been the case in the neighbouring Ruhr region. The historic theatre in Freyming-Merlebach had deteriorated, and a number of cracks appeared as the result of disused underground tunnels. The old 500-seat auditorium needed to be replaced, and it had also become too small.
