The Museum of Art and Photography Bangalore / Mathew and Ghosh Architects

March 25, 2023 Hana Abdel 0

In a global unfolding post-colonial narrative, the ideas for a Museum in contemporary India hinged on excursions of mnemonic recall and equitability.  The Museum of Art and Photography, Bangalore India, MAP plays on the tensions between the idea of collecting -collating, containing, and storing – which is the fodder for curatorship, and engagement with communities that embed the work as part of lived experience in the city of Bangalore, from the mundane to theatrical, and exotic to equal. The Museum design internally predicates art and its showcase over spatial dramatics to present generic gallery spaces, that insulate precious art and artifacts from ultraviolet light.

Red Education Base of Jiang Jie Hometown / SADI

February 27, 2023 Collin Chen 0

Few people knew that Jiangjie was from Zigong before the construction of this project. “Hometown of Jangjie” is also used as a theme of the urban position of Zigong during the building of this project, which shows the significance of this project to the city. Due to the yong age when Jiangjie died, only a few personal belongings were left behind. Jiangjie is more well-known and remembered for her artistic image – red rock, red plum, and red star which have almost become spiritual symbols deeply associated with her, and precisely the source of inspiration and logical starting point of the design.

The Historical Museum in Frankfurt is one of the oldest institutions of its kind. It is located directly in the centre of the city, at the Römerberg and near the river Main. Until the 2010s, it was housed in an ensemble of historic buildings and in an annex building from the 1970s made of reinforced concrete. This more recent building had become unsuitable for further use due to technical problems concerning fire protection, escape routes, and contamination by harmful substances.

The building massing was inspired by the geological mountain forms created by the shifting of ancient tectonic plates of the Chengdu region.
