The Kimbell’s Stylish, Sustainable New Addition

The Kimbell’s Stylish, Sustainable New Addition | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it
The Kimbell Art Museum’s new addition, the Renzo Piano Pavilion, bears the name of its architect and demonstrates the happy coexistence of sustainability and physical beauty.

The $135 million Piano Pavilion was commissioned to serve one of the most revered museum buildings in the country, designed by architect Louis Kahn, and Mr. Piano’s pavilion design aims to complement Kahn’s monumental modernist aesthetic, his fondness for concrete and emphasis on light. What Mr. Piano’s pavilion adds to the conversation is a stress on contemporary sustainability practices.

“The Kahn building is famous for its natural light,” Mr. Piano said. “But that was a natural lighting system designed in the late ’60s and ’70s. Technologies have advanced considerably since then. We needed to capitalize on the new technologies and make a design that is more flexible and responsive to the issues of today, like sustainability.”

 

“Designing for energy savings is not an ‘add on,’ ” Mr. Piano said in an October Kimbell Art Museum publicity release, “but, rather, the proper way to build.”

Perot Museum of Nature and Science

Museums, armatures for collective societal experience and cultural expression, present new ways of interpreting the world.


As our global environment faces ever more critical challenges, a broader understanding of the interdependence of natural systems is becoming more essential to our survival and evolution. Museums dedicated to nature and science play a key role in expanding our understanding of these complex systems.

The new Perot Museum of Nature & Science in Victory Park will create a distinct identity for the Museum, enhance the institution’s prominence in Dallas and enrich the city’s evolving cultural fabric. Designed to engage a broad audience, invigorate young minds, and inspire wonder and curiosity in the daily lives of its visitors, the Museum will cultivate a memorable experience that will persist in the minds of its visitors and that will ultimately broaden indi- viduals’ and society’s understanding of nature and science.

 

The Museum will strive to achieve the highest standards of sustainability possible for a building of its type. High performance design and incorporation of state of the art technologies will yield a new building that will minimize its impact on the environment.

Green Rooftop Spruces Up ‘Museum Of Art’ In Seoul | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

It is hard to find a green space in a big city, so the firm SAMOO Architects and Engineers decided to incorporate a rooftop garden into the Buk Seoul Museum of Art. 

The environmentally friendly, geometric rooftops filter rainwater and insulate the museum, while its quirky shapes invite people to experience art on the rooftop gardens. 

Visit the link to take a closer look at this eco-friendly museum.

They also become a sort of oasis in a sea of concrete and asphalt.
