Located in Shanghai’s Baoshan District, this former glass-manufacturing site covers a total area of around 30,000m2, and includes thirty existing buildings of various age and scale. logon proposed a 20 year strategic development plan, renaming the site to G+ Glass Theme Park (Glass, Art, Research and Technology Park). Phase one includes the Shanghai Museum of Glass and a hot glass show. Implementing a museum within the first phase of the development will help to shed some light on the Baoshan district where it is located and its community. As the site location is not well known, the museum should help in increasing the value of the surrounding land. Following phases of G+ Glass Theme Park include a sculpture yard in phase two, a science park in phase three, and a business park in phase four all supported by commercial facilities planned to be complete by 2018. This concept of glass museum is quite unique in China; Logon describes the project as a ‘Type Two’ multifunctional glass museum. logon | urban.architecture.design - Shanghai Museum of Glass
3XN’s Museum of Liverpool The new Museum of Liverpool that has just opened on July 19th tells Liverpool’s story, its importance as one of the World’s great ports, and its cultural influence such as with the Beatles phenomenon. It is conceived as a meeting point for History, the People of Liverpool and visitors from around the globe. According to the Architect, Kim Herforth Nielsen, the project functions as much more than just a Building or a Museum. As the largest National Museum to be built in the UK in over 100 years, and situated on a UNESCO World Heritage Site next to Liverpool’s famous ’Three Graces,’ Kim Herforth Nielsen was fully aware of the magnitude of the challenge, when it came to designing the new Museum of Liverpool. ’The Museum’s design is a result of a very rigorous process, where it was of utmost priority to listen to the city inhabitants, learn the city’s history and understand the potential of the historical site that the Museum now sits upon.’
yh2_Yiacouvakis Hamelin Architects Geometrie Noire, in Saint-Hyppolite, North of Montreal, Canada Saint-Hypolite is small town in the Laurentide, a scenic region used mostly as a weekend getaway for Montrealers. The house is built within a dense forest on a slight hill, bordering the opening of a small river. Through the trees, we perceive the body of the black building, divided into three blocks that get linked through glass passageways.
* FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT / LOGICA PLANULUI « Arhiprofesor's Blog PLAN ! There is something elemental in the word itself. A pregnant plan has logic – is the logic of the building squarely stated. Unless it is the plan for a foolish Fair. A good plan is the beginning and the end, because every good plan is organic. That means that its development in all directions is inherent – inevitable.

Today, the way ecology is being incorporated into architecture has evolved considerably. Sustainable architecture, or green architecture, aims to minimize the negative impact of buildings on the environment by enhancing efficiency and moderating the use of materials, energy, and space. Spewing carbon dioxide, generating masses of waste, and consuming alarming quantities of energy and water, our cities place a heavy burden on both the global environment and the local ecosystem. Architecture itself has a tremendous impact on the environment. Watch the full documentary now The Sustainable City

Bridge between Orient and Occidentby Annette Galinski | 10.08.2011 The ensemble of the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris creates a connection between oriental building art, modern high-tech and a metaphor regarding its content. It sounds like every architect’s dream; hardly any requirements given by the principal, building on a first-class area near Nôtre-Dame in Paris and a once-in-a-lifetime scenic view at the left of the Seine river.

Debate: What makes for good design in school buildings? Copyrighted image Credit: Deskcube 10 | Dreamstime.com 11 Nearly everybody will have had experience of school buildings - most of us will have been in them for our own education, many of us will have been parents. Some will have worked in them as adults - at chalkboards, or whiteboards, or in kitchens, or offices. Many schools now have a life out of school hours as community centres, or even commercially-minded gyms. We want to draw on your experiences to start a debate about what works and what doesn't.

Architecture the blogger way Strictly speaking the architecture of present century has already witnessed the marvels of DIGITAL ARCHITECTURE, but there will a paradigm shift in this field when we look to the future. This presentation aims at presenting those technologies that comes( or will come) under the ambit of digital architecture.
During my B.Arch course at IITR, I had to make presentations on the works of an eminent architect every single semester. In most cases we were told to work on a specific architect, making it hard to find out the plans and other drawings. The “World Wide Web” seems to have no space for architect presentations it seems. Much harder it was to find the drawings. So with great effort, me and my classmates have compiled the works of these world famous architects. Architect Presentations « Architecture the blogger way
