BO Bartlett Center / Olson Kundig

December 19, 2018 Pilar Caballero 0

“My design agenda for the Bo Bartlett Center was how to make the architecture support Bo’s artwork and legacy. This may seem strange coming from an architect, but my hope is that the architecture disappears and Bo’s work is what lights the place up.” –Tom Kundig, FAIA, RIBA, Design Principal

The large-scale block form of the new town is markedly different from the “natural” structure of the old town.Fuhe River that flows south from the “Tengwangge Delta” tries to preserve the landscape characteristics of this city, and turns the bridge into a major element in the urban design.The project intends to obtain evidence from the morphological memory of this contemporary city, and remains in the frontier of the cultural landscape.

Terrassenhaus Berlin / Brandlhuber + Emde, Burlon + Muck Petzet

December 7, 2018 Rayen Sagredo 0

Located in Berlin-Wedding, the multi-use atelier and gallery building combines different forms of usage.  Although the area has no binding land-use plan, a regulation from 1958 only permits the construction of commercial buildings. Yet at the same time, an ongoing grandfather clause also ensures that the area remains essentially a residential zone. In this context, the special status allows for a new building to be constructed, which serves as a commercial building but could become a residential site in the future. The project engages with the unique qualities of the location.

MATO / FCC Arquitectura

Of the need for an exhibition space came the “MATO – Art Gallery”, next to Paulo Neves sculptor’s atelier. Looking for inspiration in their own work of the sculptor, the organic design mirrors the trace of Paulo Neves. The whole body develops without straight surfaces. As if a strange animal was born on site, mixed with the surrounding vegetation.

Tower of Bricks / Interval Architects

December 3, 2018 Collin Chen 0

Place and history
The project began with an abandoned Hoffman brick kiln. The site of the kiln was located between Hengshui wetland park and the city proper of Hengshui. It was formerly a place where factories nearby used to drain their sewage water onto. As the only building on wetland, the brick kiln was highly recognizable with its chimney. However the Hoffman kiln was gradually abandoned due to the national policy that banned the burning of bricks out of clay as an environmental protection measure. The building condition declined to a collapsing condition eventually. With the new governmental plan to convert the wetland into a botanic park, the project called for the design of a botanic art center on the site. We decided that the memory and history of the old kiln has to be recalled and remembered with the new architecture. We hope to connect the past and the present of the place with the project.

DiabloRosso / SKETCH

November 23, 2018 Pilar Caballero 0

Diablo Rosso is a creative think tank and art gallery established in 2006 and based in Panama City. Since its birth, SKETCH and Diablo Rosso have worked together in the design of spaces that foster critical thinking towards arts, politics, and culture. The gallery has recently relocated to the ground floor of a landmark commercial building dating from the 1930s; recognized for formerly being one of the largest department stores in the city and due to its prime location across Santa Ana square, a meeting point for the community and heart of the Santa Ana neighborhood. Today this busy commercial street is a bustling pedestrian avenue crowded with street vendors and loud music; a one of a kind scenario that boosts the gallery’s main driver: encourage the public’s appreciation for contemporary art through the generation of impact in the surrounding community.

Art Gallery Catuçaba / CRU! Architects

November 21, 2018 Pilar Caballero 0

The clients’ idea of an art gallery was that art and nature are intertwined and art should be presented in a natural environment. Throughout the hotel property various art installations can be found. By being in nature one should be more receptive to see and feel art, according to the hotel owner. The art gallery has to host changing exhibitions offering clients a variation of art. This art gallery was built by a community eco-building cooperative that was aided by CRU! Architects. The idea of this social building project was to provide training and job-development for a deprived community. After the community center, commissions were sought outside of the village of Camburi in order to have economic return for the cooperants, of which this art-gallery is an example. The entire bamboo-structure was executed by the local cooperative, whilst the brickwork, excavations and foundations were done by the local workers from the farm which the hotel is located on.

Studio Loft / Yerce Architecture + zaas

November 6, 2018 Daniel Tapia 0

This is the story of the conversion of a regular, standard flat into a photography studio, private house, and an art gallery. The apartment is located on a quiet street parallel to a busy boulevard in Alsancak, one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Izmir. The brief was to design the ground floor and the upper floor of this apartment which was part of a five-story housing block on this calm and green street, to be used as a photographic studio. During the design process, together with the client, it was agreed upon that this place could go beyond being just a photographic studio.
