Depot and Administration Ruhr Museum

Central Library and Museum for the University of Alcalá de Henares


Memory – Occupying a historic building. We thought that the project for the new Central Library of Alcalá de Henares University should not be strictly limited to a refurbishment task, in which a new program and furniture are to supersede the original ones. It should be understood as an insertion into an existing party-wall, acquiring […]

Art Omi Museum


Notes taken from Fausto Ferrara’s sketchbook: … “more than a museum, I’m thinking of a place where art, the sky, the earth, and people can meet each other. A home: an “Art House”. I look for sensations rather than functions: The idea is a sense of community, a spirit where art connects with the place […]

Jøssingfjord Museum


Architecture begins where the pure necessity of the need for a shelter ends. The ability of man to command nature and use it as a protection against itself is the very beginning of civilization. The caves of Jøssingfjord as well as it’s hydro power station are in that sense two monuments for Norwegian innovation and […]

Fashion Tower Museum


The project is an approach founded within the harmonious balance of technology, materials, form, and context. Achieving an iconic tower for Tokyo’s premier fashion district requires a methodology that achieves the beautiful, with the elegance and poetry of formal exuberance. Exuberance in the architectural discourse proposes robust variation in form, tectonics, and spatial experience. Within […]

Nanjing Sifang Art Museum


Perspective is the fundamental historic difference between Western and Chinese painting. After the 13th Century, Western painting developed vanishing points in fixed perspective. Chinese painters, although aware of perspective, rejected the single-vanishing point method, instead producing landscapes with “parallel perspectives” in which the viewer travels within the painting. The new museum is sited at the […]

Nam June Paik Museum


Nam June Paik and his interest for nature and technology inspired the architects to bring nature and technology into a reciprocal presupposition, where one topic influences the other and vice versa. The building is transformed, generated and dissolved by nature and technology. Instead of defining an opposition between these two issues the project is about […]
