A Transparent Work Environment in the Netherlands: Mirai House

A Transparent Work Environment in the Netherlands: Mirai House | Classical Music | Scoop.it
Designed by amsterdam-based architecture firm, UNStudio, the ‘mirai house’ employs a high performance skin dynamically framed in white to unify the three functions of Astellas’ headquarters in Leiden, the Netherlands.Consisting of six storeys of offices and laboratories, and a large entrance lobby, each programmatic element has its own segment of the building encircling the central courtyard. Speaking to the company’s heritage, the garden is informed by traditional enclosed japanese landscaping. The importance of visual connection among the functions, open communication, a transparent work environment, and sufficient daylighting is emphasized by the extensive use of glass in the facade and skylights at the lower levels.

Erik Retallick's insight:
This is a very original design and you will probably either love it or hate it!

Stockhausen/Nono, Royal Festival Hall - The Arts Desk

Stockhausen/Nono, Royal Festival Hall - The Arts Desk | Classical Music | Scoop.it
“Evening Standard Stockhausen/Nono, Royal Festival Hall The Arts Desk We began with a classic, Karlheinz Stockhausen's three-orchestra Gruppen (1955-1957).”
Erik Retallick's insight:
Sir Thomas Beecham once famously said "Stockhausen sounds like something I've just trodden in accidentally" or words to that effect. When you have listened to some of his music you may be inspired and wish to hear more or avoid accidentally treading in it again!

Performers of Bach’s works: their biographies, Bach discographies... Poets & composers associated with Bach: their biographies, Bach connection... Other resources: the Lutheran church year, chorale texts & melodies, books and movies on Bach, concerts, Bach festivals, guide to Bach tour... The BCW is an international collective project."
Erik Retallick's insight:
An interesting comprehensive guide to some of the world's finest choral music. Also a great way to get to know this often neglected repertoire.

Bridge House: Self-Sufficient Residence in the Netherlands

Bridge House: Self-Sufficient Residence in the Netherlands | Classical Music | Scoop.it
Designed by 123DV, the Bridge House in the Netherlands is set in a newly developed estate in the unique, tree-lined landscape of the Dutch Achterhoek, where unexpected scenes of rural beauty are always just around the bend.Its setting is a wide-open space that frames the park, which blends into the landscape around it, and the property has been carefully restored to its original state. To make the soil less fertile, the top layer was removed and in the interest of sustainability, this soil was reused to form a raised area beneath the house. The result is a traditional Dutch terp dwelling, a house on top of a hill that contains the cellar.Sustainability inspired the design, and the villa is self-sufficient. At any time, the occupants can go off the grid without losing their energy supply. Water is drawn from a private well, and the practical and sustainable built-in features include solar panels, roof and floor heating through thermal energy storage, reuse of rainwater, a septic tank, shielded power cables, and Heat Mirror glass. This unique glass acts as an efficient and environmentally friendly awning, cooling the house and keeping out excess heat...More photos and information at the article link...

Erik Retallick's insight:
I have visited and travelled through the Achterhoek, but I never saw any buildings as plain and boring as this one. I remember beautiful old Dutch-style farmhouses and rural beauty. It seems such a shame that they have spoilt even a small area by building objects like the above glass rectangular carbuncle.

This is a much more flexible and open-ended way of teaching and learning compared with the textbook. It also helps to combat any vestiges of technophobia in the younger generation.
