Welcome to the Stage!

Kjellander Sjöberg, together with Henning Larsen, formed one of the seven teams selected to participate in the architecture competition for the Stockholm University of Arts’ (SKH) new building in the Slakthusområdet district.

The vision was to create a building where the SKH and the city meet, where backstage becomes front of house, and where the artistic development process is positioned in a constructive and ever-changing dialogue with the society, the surroundings and people of various backgrounds and life situations.Artistic epicenterThe new performing arts school invites f...

Vibrant vistas and seamless edges define this pre-primary school in Gokak, India

Built on a triangular-shaped piece of land in an existing educational campus in Gokak, Shreyas Patil Architects design the new Sanskruti pre-primary school as a delightful manifestation of colourful volumes and blurred edges.

The House of Astronomy

The cornerstone for the renewed interest in astronomy in Germany was laid in the early 1960s. One of the reasons was the establishment of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in the Chilean Atacama Desert. Many German research institutes were involved in this project. What began as the dream of leading European astronomers is now one of the most successful research institutes worldwide. Several Max Planck Institutes focusing on astronomy were set up at the same time. The Centre for Astronomy Education and Outreach in Heidelberg is considered the German hub for the work of the ESO. In October 2012, together with the employees of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, the centre celebrated the 50th anniversary of the charter being signed.... More

The Forum

The Forum was conceived in 2004 by John Gaunt, Dean the University of Kansas School of Architecture, Design & Planning from 1995 to 2015. Located on historic Jayhawk Boulevard, the addition to School of Architecture at Marvin Hall addresses the school’s critical need for an auditorium for lecture courses and guest speakers, while also providing a separate breakout jury space for student reviews and presentations. In this way, students of the School of Architecture will no longer be required to trek across campus to attend their classes, but rather, will attend classes in a building that exemplifies their studies on emerging technologies, passive design strategies, and energy-efficient mechanical systems. What was the old Jury Room... More
