Channeling the otherworldliness of Andersen’s fairy tales, the 5,600 square meter building is two-thirds below grade, leaving ground level space for “enchanted” gardens of large trees, lawns, box hedges, and tall shrubs. The museum building is an ambling collection of cylindrical volumes, with glass and lattice timber facades beneath scooped green roofs, all surrounding a sunken courtyard space.

MVRDV and Traumhaus, a producer of low-cost, high-quality homes based on standardized elements, have teamed up to develop a 27,000 square meter project redeveloping former US Army barracks in Mannheim, Germany. The Funari project, named after the one of five districts in the Benjamin Franklin barracks, joins housing, gardens and public spaces, in a collection of varied typologies meant to attract different types of households and demographics.

The hope is that such heterogeneity will upend traditional perceptions of village life as territorial and segregated. MVRDV calls the concept “the fully pedestrianized ‘village,’” a place where paths meander through communal spaces such as sports parks and themed eco-environments like fruit alleys and buttery gardens.

Heart of Glass: 9 Illusive Façades Hidden in Plain Sight. Meditation Pavilion & Garden. Atelier 2B's "Soft in the Middle" Rethinks Modernism for An Age of Collaboration and Sharing.

Thus, contemporary designers that hope to riff on or have continuity with modernism must understand that architecture, even at its most aestheticized, is not hermetically sealed off from the outside world - and that therefore modernism is not a plateau of design, but another base camp on the road to further refinement.
