Built on a rigid triangular geometry the new “Asia Museum of Modern Art” in Taichung/Taiwan shows Tadao Ando’s skills in building a controlled, high-quality masterpiece that acts as an urban anchor for the surrounding university campus.
One of the first big projects for the 2009 Pritzker Prize-winning architect Peter Zumthor was this protective pavilion built to cover the remains of two Roman buildings. Built in 1985-86 and located in the capital of the Swiss canton of Graubünden, arcspace had the opportunity to revisit and photograph the site this summer. It’s astonishing to think it was designed and built almost thirty years ago. Not only does it still stand in perfect condition but it looks like it was conceived just yesterday.
The ARC River Culture Pavilion, designed by New York-based stalwarts of experimental, multi-disciplinary design, Asymptote Architecture, dazzles visitors not just with its curious form but also with an abundance of cutting edge multimedia technologies.
