Sou Fujimoto designs Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013

Architecture:  Sou Fujimoto designs Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013: “..Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has been named as the designer of this year’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, which will be a cloud-like structure made from a lattice of steel poles..The semi-transparent pavilion will occupy 350 square-metres of lawn outside the London gallery. Two entrances will lead inside the structure, where staggered terraces will provide seating for a central cafe..Sou Fujimoto describes his design as “an architectural landscape” where “the vivid greenery of the surrounding plant life [is] woven together with a constructed geometry”..”The delicate quality of the structure, enhanced by its semi-transparency, will create a geometric, cloud-like form, as if it were mist rising from the undulations of the park,” said Fujimoto. “From certain vantage points, the pavilion will appear to merge with the classical structure of the Serpentine Gallery, with visitors suspended in space.” The temporary pavilion will open to the public on 8 June and will remain in Kensington Gardens until 20 October..Sou Fujimoto is the third Japanese architect to accept the annual unpaid commission, which is one of the most highly sought-after small projects in world architecture and goes to a major architect who hasn’t yet built in the UK. Toyo Ito designed the pavilion in 2002, while SANAA followed in 2009..Last year’s pavilion was a cork-lined archaeological dig created by Herzog & de Meuron with Ai Weiwei, who was forbidden to leave China at the time..”

* Architecture: Fabrica Moritz Brewery Barcelona by Jean Nouvel

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 11 July 2012

Architecture: Fabrica Moritz Brewery Barcelona by Jean Nouvel: “..the restoration of a 19th century brewery in barcelona would both convert the dilapidating building into a material representation of its historical significance, and create a community treasure centered around design, cuisine and culture. leading the renovation, french architect jean nouvel worked hand in hand with CEO albert castello, and jordi vila, director of gastronomy. the companies priorities wanted to modernize the structure while maintaining moritz’s essence and expose the unique industrial vestiges of its era, namely the brickwork, vaulted concrete cellars and floor mosaics. although decommissioned as the principle brewing establishment, the construct has been repurposed to encompass a venue for the public..once a massive gray wall, the entrance is now greeted by a vertical garden created by parisian botanist patrick blanc. an outdoor staircase leads to the entry on the second floor which contains an outdoor terrace, museum, a gastronomical hall and workshop. at street level is the ‘M’ store, a wine bar with over 400 types, the moritz bar, water tanks, and of course a microbrewery..the subterranean fermentation halls have become the new cultural center; a restaurant and kitchen sit next to sala 39 (room 39), a large multi-use exhibition area adaptable for expositions, meeting rooms and performances for large or small audiences..”  Beer in Barcelona; vertical garden by Patrick Blanc..
