Part of the ongoing transformation of New York’s Governors Island into a vibrant cultural destination, this adaptive reuse of an 1870s munitions storage warehouse supports local artists while providing generous space for public exhibitions and events.   Designed with services donated by the design team, the new arts center is the first permanent home on the island for the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), founded in 1973 to serve local artists and the community with grants, studio space, and public exhibitions and events. To accommodate the organization’s eclectic program, the design called for opening up the interior of the long and narrow two-story building—previously a warren of military offices—and... More

Chongqing Jiangshan Yun Chu – Legend Gallery

As a lifestyle gallery, Chongqing Jiangshan Yun Chu – Legend Gallery in China is a trial for and response to localised architecture by LWK + PARTNERS. It explores the spatial interaction between nature and urban space on a site close to Chongqing’s Jialing River bank, where the waterscape forms a rare natural setting for the urban area.Riverbends by the cliff is a symbolic setting in Chongqing. Sitting on a triangular site at the highest point of the cliff, the gallery allows visitors a full view of the riverbend and a bird’s eye view of the future Yue Lai core transit-oriented development (TOD) district.Initial concepts from the early design stages all seemed rather out of place in the natural environment in spite of multiple scenario-base...

Volkswagen Mutations

This playfully subversive proposal takes one of the most famous design icons and transforms it into a new work that issues a challenge to some of the most important norms of contemporary art. The VW beetle has a loaded history. The Volkswagen company (meaning ‘people’s car’) was established in 1932 by the German Labor Front under Adolf Hitler.  Ferdinand Porsche’s Beetle design was chosen by Hitler as the means to fulfill his desire that every idealized German family should have a car. The Nazi-flag-red forms in the VW Mutations demand that we take a new perspective.Cars form the building blocks of numerous prominent contemporary artworks, compelling because of their associations with freedom, prosperity, and status. The common charact... More

Rabbit Hole (for Gilles Deleuze)

And if you go chasing rabbitsAnd you know you're going to fallTell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillarHas given you the callCall AliceWhen she was just small- Grace Slick, White RabbitIn their seminal work, A Thousand Plateaus, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari introduce the notion of "holey space.” Holey space is a space of complexity, ambiguity, hybridity, contradiction and otherness. The metaphor of holeyness evokes the subterranean – tunnels, caves, mines, sewers and burrows – with connotations of clandestine and illegal activity, and of the unknown. John Beckmann applies this subversive thinking to an empty art gallery that is filled with rabbits frolicking around, artificial burrows and escape hatches for gallery visitors. Here an a... More

TBNY-TUBULAR CLOUD NY

Tubular Cloud is a new landmark in NYC panorama, the formal result of all the interactions that happen around the Cooper Square; a passive-active instrument that modifies its out-skin listening the city around and the people that play music with inside the cloud. An Interactive space breathing the city, a motion cloud, a movement sensor, a sound sensor, a transition area with multi-hybrid technology form. It is a living mechanism, for people and their senses being explored as a part of the construction, allowing a person or just sounds to make the space, to change it and be the environment.  We play, listen, visualize and talk to the cloud, modulate its form, where the organism reacts and responds with 3d forms, sounds, lights and...

Galeri Nev Kırlangıç

The main design task of the Galeri Nev project is to install a proper art gallery in a single open space that is formed of exposed glazed façades on the three sides. This entrance floor shop, being on a sloped terrain and within a valley meadow extending to embassy gardens, has a picturesque view, rare for Ankara. Possessing the view while creating a secluded exhibition environment is the contradiction that the project is based on. The idea is, basically, to place an introverted exhibition area besides the only existing wall and to locate other functions on the exterior side overlooking the landscape. The street façade side is designed with the "wall-door" idea, which tricks on the Turkish idiom that means to face an unopened door. In... More

Studio Loft

This is the story of a multifunctional remodelling, a creative re-use project. The aim was to transform an ordinary looking flat into an inspiring, creative space where the client, a well known photographer and artist based in Izmir could live and work. During the design process, integration of an exhibition area to this space was quickly embraced as well. Thus enabling the studio to exhibit and share the photographic work that it produces, this space would also host other photography exhibitions and thus become an alternative art exhibition spot in the city.   Various flexible transformative elements have been implemented to meet the client’s demand for intimate zones mixed with functional working space. While the ground floor... More

M9 Museum, Venedig-Mestre

M9 is a museum of the cultural inheritance of the 20th century, located in a small museum quarter in Mestre, the mainland gateway to Venice. An agent of urban renewal, this educational institution and events venue provides a point of local identification and helps to redress the disparity of cultural wealth between Mestre and the tourist magnet across the lagoon.The M9 scheme consists of one larger and one smaller new building – for the museum and its offices, respectively – plus a former convent and an office building. Together they frame a new public square and open up a diagonal pedestrian link from Piazza Erminia Ferretto to the important thoroughfare of Via Cappuccina. This passes through the courtyard of the 16th-century Convento dell... More
