Tirpitz bunker / BIG architects

A 2.800m2 “invisible museum” to be created at a historic German WWII bunker in Denmark, by BIG architects

Commissioned by Museum Center Blåvand the new experimental cultural complex will be embedded into the dune landscape and integrate a bunker museum, an amber museum, a “histolarium” and a special exhibitions gallery within a single structure.

 

Upon arrival, visitors will first see the bunker until they approach through the heath-lined pathways and find the walls cut into the dunes from all sides and descend to meet in a central clearing. The courtyard allows access into the four underground gallery spaces that have an abundance of daylight even though they are literally carved into the sand.

 

Kronløb island / COBE architects

Designs for the new artificial island in the harbor basin of Copenhagen, Denmark, that will include houses, urban spaces, bridges and a large underground parking facility. The island will serve also as a stepping-stone between two new neighborhoods in the future city district and will break up the harbor basin into a number of intimate canals.

Kronløb island is an ongoing project by COBE architects.

Two open courtyards connected by an open-air corridor are opposed to two closed volumes (sleeping quarters next to the entrance, and the main living area) bridged with a glass-roofed ramp on the opposite side…(read more)

Fab Union Space, a non-profit arts and community center designed by Philip F. Yuan and Archi-Union Architects, located in the West Bund area in Shanghai.

The design, influenced by the 3,000-year-old art of Chinese garden architecture, filters light in diverse ways, underscores indoor-to-outdoor transitions and creates a sense of shifting perspectives and perceptions of scale in a relatively compact 368 sq m building.”
