OMA . CaenLaMer

The new library, located at the tip of Caen’s peninsula, includes four protruding wings that point towards four of the city’s landmarks: the abbeys Abbaye-aux-Dames in the north and Abbaye-aux-Hommes in the east; the central train station to the south; and the site of proposed future developments in the west.

New Maribor Museum

The building aims to affect the overall city scale, whilst confirming the primacy of the historic core. While the building clearly presents itself as a single entity, it also clearly reveals the programmatic elements it is composed of. The Children’s Museum, Creative Industry Centre, Architectural Centre and Catering Area assume ‘ideal’ forms and structures that are attached to each side of the core building Cube that houses the main program.

Nacka Rings . Europan 9 . Nacka

photos: europan

Inmerso el tejido disperso y de baja densidad de la periferia de Estocolmo, “Nacka Rings” proporciona una nueva centralidad para la ciudad de Nacka, alrededor de su antiguo ayuntamiento, a partir de un conjunto de grandes edificios multiusos de geometría poligonal, adaptados a la topografía y de bajo impacto medioambiental. La preservación de bolsillos de bosque y suelo rocoso en el interior de estos anillos se propone como posible modelo de ocupación contemporánea del territorio.

UN’ESPERIENZA BAROCCA di Alberto Altini1992 _Tutto comincia con una “Scultura per Gioco”.
Siamo nella periferia industriale di San Donà di Piave, in un’area di nessuno, destinata a verde e parcheggi di lottizzazione; l’immaginazione e la volontà di un imprenditore visionario la trasformano “inventandola” come parco: il Parco della Scultura in Architettura.
Questo spazio di risulta, disegnato da due strade e delimitato visivamente dal terrapieno del fiume Piave, diventa un’occasione di progetto. Viene così sottratto un piccolo lembo di terra alla città diffusa, ai chilometri di banali edifici industriali e ridonato, nuovo, alla città. Da spazio dimenticato, diviene luogo d’incontro, da spazio inutile si converte in luogo d’esperienza, da discarica di macerie, quello che stava diventando, si trasforma in un serbatoio di idee.

Art Gallery . Maribor

photos: archdaily

The program for the new Maribor Art Gallery mandates a clear institutional identity: A singular architectural complex, a progressive curatorial agenda, and a new place of public assembly in the city. At the same time, the site demands a sensitivity to the robust historical fabric of the city of Maribor itself. Our project negotiates that apparent contradiction with an architectural solution that synthesizes two distinct yet complementary spatial systems: An open, flowing public platform at ground level smoothly connected to adjacent places of gathering and the banks of the River Drava. And a modulated gallery sequence, developed as an assemblage of parts, scaled to the dimension of the historical parcels. Continue reading Stan Allen Architect
