Located in the Museum district of Munich, the new Brandhorst Museum is a rectangular box three-storeys high, including the basement, which houses a private contemporary art collection.
The authors' intention was to create a facade which was also an abstract painting. The exterior skin is made up of several layers: in front of the structure and the insulation layer, comes a sheet of two-tone folded microperforated metal which absorbs traffic noise. In front, the glazed ceramic pieces a.
The new city of Riem forms part of Munich's strategy for growth, which is based on three concepts: urban, compact and green. It lies on the the land of the former airport and tries to achieve a liveable environment based on three basic ingredients: home of the Trade Fair and the whole range of associated offices, social housing and facilities for 16,000 inhabitants and a 200-hectare park.
In 1998 the trade fair installations were inaugurated and the first residents started to arrive. Ten years later, Riem is a bustling mixture of workers and residents, with a neighbourhood life revolving around the shopping centre, located in the pedestrian area, and the civic-educational-religious centre designed by Nagler.
The Maths faculty isn't as might first appear an epidermic exercise yet in fact a work of insertion. Located in one of the university areas of Liubliana, the programme is built upon a previous two-storey building not belonging to the faculty, such that the existing building and the new one have to remain separate, even though they share the same space.
The project for the new Maribor stadium has a long history, -more than ten years' between the first project and the execution- and it still has unfinished parts. It runs the risk of the programmatic effort being blurred behind the great gesture that the roofing has proved to be. However, the project's interest lies in the mixing of uses in the operation and in this type of extra bonus of the spaces for circulation and standing which enrich the project.
As Slovenia became part of the European Union in 2004, it was required to build a series of new institutional public service buildings, including this congress centre in Brdo. This building originates in a need for a building to hold representative acts during its E.U. Presedency. The entire project was designed and built in under two years. There are, however, no traces of this haste on the building. This is the result of an exquisite building control that undergo all buildings by this studio, started by Matja Bevk (Ljubljana, 1972) and Vasa Perovic (Belgrade, 1965) in 1997.
This office complex is being completed in the Zona Franca area, nearby the Calle A project. Two new buildings share the same block: this one, by FOA, and the adjoining one by Arata Isozaki.
The Gran Vía avenue is being refurbished in the L’Hospitalet de Llobregat sector. There, new commercial, housing and office developments are growing alongside the highway. One of these developments is the new trade fair precinct Fira 2000. Next to it, two new towers are being built on top of a common plinth with services.
Like the Library and Day Center by RCR Arquitectes, the project forms part of the ProEixample programme for the revitalisation of the district. The new library is part of the programme of existing public buildings (a civic centre and a market), impelling a new nucleus of nearby public services.
The new theatre is located across from Hening Larsen's Opera, with a strip of water between them. The vocation of the public space of the building shows itself on the large wooden outer wall that surrounds it, separated from the interior by a covering of glass on three of its façades.
This project, published in a+t 27 In Common III, consist in a car park in the heart of the historic district of Lisbon, although it is much more than that: it is an excellent excuse for a public viewpoint that serves as a breathing point for the motley fabric of Alfama and allows pedestrian connections in the complicated topography of the neighbourhood.
