Pilecki Family Museum balances a historic house, new pavilion, and garden with a compelling museum design narrative

Balancing three elements – a historic house, a new pavilion, and a garden – the Pilecki Family Museum by BDR Architekci is dedicated to famous World War II hero Witold Pilecki and his family. It is one of the last places to commemorate him, as the family home near Lida was demolished after the war.  Konrad Basan The house component of the museum is the former family home of Pilecki’s wife. A central element of the museum, the house was thoroughly restored and reconstructed from archival photos. Cellars were deepened and the attic rebuilt while original details, cornices and window frames were reconstructed. So as not to interfere with the external structure, wall insulation was added from the inside. The house i... More

Walk and talk 2020 Pavilion

”In the weaving of baskets and mats  There is a knowledge that lives and does not leave  As if the weaver were weaving himself  And not only weaving the mat and basket  But also his human union to the earth.”   Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen   The 2020 Walk and Talk Artist Festival Pavilion is a welcoming, public, open space; a temporary symbol for the city to emphasis the importance for artists, artisans and designer to work together along with the community to address the common social concerns. The designed pavilion seeks to create a strong connection with the neighborhood by conceptually extending the already utilized public plaza into the interior multi-functional areas. Those spaces...

Fish Trap House V

The Fish Trap is an ancient vessel. In the past, it served as a tool for catching fish. Then, as it was no longer used, it became a symbol that bears lost culture in museums and literature. In this piece, we tried to take this vessel and reproduce it with different dimensions and appearances. The artist FENG focused on the memories of the handicraft and the unique spatial experience that is perceived with the body to create a one-of-a-kind Fish Trap House so the vessel has a chance to hold all kinds of possibilities and imagination. The Fish Trap House created by the artist is not used for trapping fish. Instead, it captures the attention of people, luring them in as if they are fish in the water, swimming into the alluring landscape of Yu... More

In 2009, in the southern zone of Yucatán, in México, a group of young students, sons and daughters of Mayan farmers belonging to the rural community of Dzán, whose economic support consists mainly in the farming of citrus, moved by their “change their world” reckless enthusiasm, took the action into working together through science and culture with the purpose of inspiring the most vulnerable sector of the population: children and young adolescents, whose school dropout, substance abuse rates and lacking of vocation were rising.

KAAN Architecten complete composed pavilion for Loenen National War Cemetery

Commissioned by the Netherlands War Graves Foundation, KAAN Architecten aimed to create a distinguished yet subtle pavilion that blends with the birch and pine trees that surround it.  © Simone Bossi The architects allowed the trees to dictate the building's narrow shape. The horizontal orientation refers back to the cemetery’s original landscape design by Daniel Haspels that was devoid of verticality in order to avoid disrupting the calming effect of the trees. Even the graves throughout the cemetery are lying flat for this reason.  © Simone Bossi The roof further accentuates the orientation. The architects interpreted the roof not just as a cover, but as a horizontal wall with openings that expose the... More

Art Point Pavilion

Artbatfest is an international festival of contemporary public art partnered by the British Council, the 2015 edition of which occupied a number of previously empty venues across the city of Almaty in Kazakhstan. We were invited to create a central focus for the initiative on a vacant, wooded plot in the city centre.   At first we experimented with a space made up of different parts but, with dialogue as a guiding theme for the festival, we eventually brought these elements together to make a steel-framed, painted plywood pavilion which could be inhabited in a huge variety of different ways.   Almaty is thought to be the place where apples originated and, despite being completely open, the pavilion has the effect of a shelteri...

Bike pavilion

With its well-structured network of bike stations, the city of Mainz provides numerous rental bikes. However, up until now, there has been a lack of infrastructure for privately owned bikes, such as suitable parking places. All too often, you encounter neglected bikes that have fallen victim to the weather and vandalism. SCHOYERERARCHITEKTEN_SYRA As a result of their low architectonic quality and the manner of their construction, the bicycle sheds found on the market are easily susceptible to vandalism, and therefore unsuitable for public spaces. SCHOYERERARCHITEKTEN_SYRA It was against this background that SCHOYERER ARCHITEKTEN_SYRA developed an initial prototype of a bike pavilion for the city of Mainz. True to the practice&rs... More

MVRDV revisits their iconic Hannover Expo 2000 pavilion with co-working office transformation

The redesign of MVRDV’s Hannover Expo 2000 pavilion will retain the qualities of the original design and reinterpret the ‘stacked landscape’ concept for two new buildings that will be added. One will contain 370 student apartments and the other offices and parking. The original pavilion stacked six Dutch landscapes into a tower with stairs wrapped around. The landscape themes will be converted into co-working offices and meeting rooms while maintaining their key characteristics. The first floor that houses the greenhouses theme will for example keep the strict rectilinear grid as an office. “It’s such an exciting opportunity for us to revisit this early project of ours that we first worked on over twenty...
