NEW AARCH in Aarhus, Denmark by ADEPT

Sunday, December 11th, 2022

Article source: ADEPT

Inspired by 21st century learning principles, the new Aarhus School of Architecture was designed as an incubator for architectural experiments, workshop-based learning and unplanned synergies between students. The architecture is raw, almost resembling an industrial building, but only at first glance – the refined detailing and strong spatial organization deliberately communicates how a building is constructed; how to refine a design through a few carefully selected materials and how to allow architecture to step into the background as a flexible framework for activity.

New Headquarters of the Faculty of Humanities, Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic by Kuba & Pilař architekti

Saturday, March 26th, 2022

Article source: Kuba & Pilař architekti

The original canteen and dormitory buildings by the architect Karel Prager are only the torso of an unfinished university campus on the banks of the Vltava River. The canteen itself was never fully used as intended. The 1980s building, built using a demanding lift-slab construction method with its deep central square disposition, had an indisputable architectural quality at the time of its construction. However, a radical change was necessary to accommodate new needs of the Faculty of Humanities.

Crous University Refectory in Pontoise, France by Graal architecture

Friday, February 18th, 2022

Article source: Graal architecture

Located in the heart of the Cergy prefecture park, the restructuring of the university refectory imparts a new radiance to this central facility of the campus’ student and tertiary life. Erected in 1993, the building has the privilege of being set in the François Mitterrand Park thanks to its topographical location and its openness to this large landscaped public space. The facility is thus ideally integrated into the pedestrian network, at the crossroads of the two main routes that connect the Paris-Seine University sector and the Val d’Oise prefecture.

The Knight Cancer Research Building (KCRB) at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) serves a singular mission: to end cancer as we know it. To achieve this, the Knight Cancer Institute championed a “team science” approach that encourages scientists to work differently, performing interdisciplinary early detection research in an environment upholding collaboration, connections, and shared resources. The KCRB breaks down barriers in order to build up scientists to do their best and most innovative work all in the name of a cure.
