Foreign Office Architects - Yokohama International Port Terminal Photo: arcspace The brief of the Yokohama International Port Terminal asked for the articulation of a passenger cruise terminal and a mix of civic facilities for the use of citizens in one building.

An Installation by David Byrne Creative Time presents Playing the Building, a 9,000-square-foot, interactive, site-specific installation by renowned artist David Byrne. The artist transforms the interior of the landmark Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan into a massive sound sculpture that all visitors are invited to sit and “play.” The project consists of a retrofitted antique organ, placed in the center of the building's cavernous second-floor gallery, that controls a series of devices attached to its structural features—metal beams, plumbing, electrical conduits, and heating and water pipes. These machines vibrate, strike, and blow across the building’s elements, triggering unique harmonics and producing finely tuned sounds.

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec Design A new Museum called MUDAM (Museum of Modern Art- Grand Duc Jean, Luxembourg) opened in July 2006 in a building designed by Architect I.M Pei, an unfurling of mineral facades punctuated by slanted glass sides. Under one of these high glass roofs and in an adjacent room are located the restaurant and the shop of the Museum, which director Marie-Claude Beaud asked Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to design.
