First Look: Les Turbulences FRAC Centre | Jakob + MacFarlane | Orléans, France | Project Portfolio | Architectural Record

First Look: Les Turbulences FRAC Centre | Jakob + MacFarlane | Orléans, France | Project Portfolio | Architectural Record | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

A different kind of FRAC Centre (Les Fonds Régionaux d’Art Contemporain) opens September 14 in the historic city of Orléans, France—it is the first of the some two dozen regional cultural institutions to be devoted to architectural exhibitions as well as art. Dubbed Les Turbulences, the complex features a quirky, digitally sculpted new extension appended to 18th- and 19th-century buildings that were once a military supply depot. The project, which was designed by the Paris-based architects Jakob + MacFarlane, involved the restoration and renovation of the existing U-shaped complex, plus a partial demolition of one wing to create a sloping and dipping courtyard for a new aluminum-clad, parametric form. The arresting addition, with its snout-like chimneys, energetically beckons visitors to this tight site bounded by a highly trafficked road, its scale unexpectedly and oddly in keeping with the historic environs.

New Milan Trade Fair / Studio Fuksas | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

In an effort to attract large-scale world-class conventions and exhibitions, the city of Milan embarked on an ambitious plan to build a $700 million trade show complex. Massimiliano Fuksas was engaged to bring to life a new design that would house exhibition halls, auditoriums, conference rooms, restaurants and cafes, meeting halls, and office spaces for the Fiera administration. What would emerge from the recently reclaimed brownfields was a Fiera that covers 2.1 million square feet and stretches nearly a mile.

Video // Eduardo Souto de Moura’s lecture at Harvard GSD | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Architect Eduardo Souto de Moura studied sculpture and architecture at the School of Fine Arts in Porto and worked with several firms in Portugal before forming his own office in 1980.

His early work is often called “miesian” for its precisely aligned stone and glass planes and sharp rectangular volumes; his later studies in chiseled masonry and landscape interventions recall the sensibility of Alvaro Siza, for whom he worked for five years. Souto De Moura has become well known for his large-scale projects like the Braga stadium (2003), the Burgo Tower in Porto (2007), and the Paola Rego Museum at Cascais (2009). A professor at the University of Porto, he has taught and lectured widely. Recipient of the Pritzker Prize in 2011, he won the Wolf Prize and Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design in 2013.

Japanese Architects PROTEST Zaha Hadid’s 2020 Olympic Stadium | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Pritzker Prize laureate Fumihiko Maki has rallied together a number of Japanese architects – including Sou Fujimoto, Toyo Ito and Kengo Kuma – to oppose the massive scale of Zaha Hadid’s competition-winning National Stadium. Planned to be Tokyo’s main venue for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games, Hadid’s 290,000 square meter stadium is accused of being “too big and too artificial” for the surrounding context.

RE-Think Space announces 2013/14 Cycle Theme: MONEY / First Competition on the Cycle: TERRITORIES

RE-Think Space announces 2013/14 Cycle Theme: MONEY / First Competition on the Cycle: TERRITORIES | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

After two successful cycles, Zagreb Society of Architects organized the 3rd edition of the international series of concept based architectural competitions entitled ‘Think Space‘. So far, the program hosted a number of established architects and curators and it continues to re-think space in the 2013|2014 season.


The new theme Think Space | MONEY [The Echo of Nothing] was devised by Ethel Baraona Pohl and César Reyes Nájera of dpr-barcelona; architects, writers, editors, publishers, bloggers and guest curators of the third cycle.

 

Throughout the new season of competitions and papers, Think Space will be looking for pioneering works at the intersection of architecture, sociology, economics, programming and marketing that radically challenge the fundamental spatial, social and urban relation based on capitalism. The competitions and Call for Papers will focus on territories, environment, culture and society through MONEY lenses, as observed by architects and other visual artists and professionals.
