One of the three major museum extensions taking place in Madrid around 2005. For sure this one is the most expressive one. Very spacious set up with a interesting inner courtyard. The roof combines all the different parts to one building which cleverly connects it to the existing building structure.

Design Strategy and Research Centerhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/South%20Korea/Yangsan/Design%20Strategy%20and%20Research%20CenterYangsan, South Korea
Designer: THE SYSTEM LAB
Contributed by: MASIL

The characteristics of space where people like Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, The Beatles, and Steve Jobs who delivered innovative thinking and messages mostly stayed was freedom and expandability. In their youth, unusual but magnificent and cozy places like barn, storage, factory, and garage were the source of inspiration for their creative thinking. This barn was an excellent functional and emotional space typology where amplifies ventilation, three dimensional expandability, and emotional inspiration through depth in space. Design seeks for esthetics which practicality and sensibility are well balanced. We suggest newly interpreted design barn as a typology of lab where handles designs that are endlessly creative and challenging for innovative thinking. We expect a birth and reaction of innovative thoughts for our next generation through people who work, research, and visit this lab. Written by Chanjoong Kim

Palais an der Operhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Germany/Munich/Palais%20an%20der%20OperMunich, Germany
Designer: Modal M GmbH
Contributed by: ModalM

The historic 'Palais an der Oper' is situated in the most beautiful square in the city of Munich, directly adjacent to the National Theatre and Residence. The highly visible location, historic nature of the real estate and expectations of users and owners make particular demands on marketing. Within these constraints, Modal M designed and built a Marketing Suite on the construction site. Modal M was responsible for the transformation of exclusive office space in this picturesque building ensemble. The result is a unique combination of historic structure, new design and office space layouts in a prestigious building. This proved a convincing argument for an international company, which moved into a surface area of 4,000 sq. m. in the 'Palais an der Oper'. In partnership with building authorities and the State Office for the preservation of Local Traditions, the preserved 'Klenze Wing' and 'Opera Halls' were carefully and appropriately incorporated into the tenant's usage concept.

Book house https://www.mimoa.eu/projects/South%20Korea/Incheon/Book%20houseIncheon, South Korea
Designer: KDDH architects
Contributed by: MASIL

A house reflects the way of life. The most characteristic feature of a book house resembling a book is the bookcase where all books on the bench can be stacked. It had always been the client's dream to have a house full of books on the one side of the wall. The living room have turned into a study room, and the bookshelves was made on the entire wall with a high floor. The window between the bookshelves was created to relieve the tightness of the walls and the front of the bookshelves became a center of communication where the whole family can gather and spend time. The kitchen is placed facing the bookshelf so that it can communicate with the family in the living room at any time. After closing the sliding door installed in the kitchen, the living room becomes a space like a cafe and becomes a guest room for the neighbors as well as the family. The book house has lots of spaces to read like a book.

Mole Antonellianahttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Italy/Turin/Mole%20AntonellianaTurin, Italy
Designer: Alessandro Antonelli
Contributed by: GJTroost

The Mole Antonelliana is perhaps the best known landmark of Turin. The "Risogimento" (unification of Italy) had just taken place and Turin was named the first capital city of the new state Italy. The Jewish community wanted a new synagogue worthy of a capital city. They hired Alessandro Antonelli, who had experience with building domes. However, he kept adjusting his plans, aiming for a taller design over and over. Eventually the Jewish community withdrew from the project in 1876, which by that time had already cost them almost three times their original budget. The citizens of Turin had seen the synagogue being built and called upon the city council to take over the project and finish it. The city traded the unfinished synagogue with the Jewish community for a piece of land and Antonelli was hired again to finish his project. The building eventually had reached a height of 167,5 meters when it was finished in 1889. The building now houses the National Museum of Cinema.

BEA Financial Towerhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/China/Shanghai/BEA%20Financial%20TowerShanghai, China
Designer: TFP Farrells
Contributed by: Nazar

The BEA Financial Tower stands 198 metres tall in Lujiazui, an area of Shanghai that has grown rapidly to become one of China?s premier financial centres. The development comprises a commercial tower, a retail and dining podium, and three underground levels. Given the site?s prominence in the Pudong skyline, this 40-storey skyscraper not only had to respond to market demand, but contribute to the city?s visual and spatial dynamism. It comprises three principal masses: a central circulation and service core flanked by two floor plates, with the west wing of the building rising above the other two components. This stepped effect emphasizes the tower?s functional organisation while increasing its visual impact, further enhanced by night-time lighting of the tower crown. The complex is technologically advanced, offering high efficiency and responding to China?s increasing concern for environmental protection.

Gatehouse Keukenhofhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Lisse/Gatehouse%20KeukenhofLisse, Netherlands
Designer: Mecanoo
Contributed by: Blue_Diver

The elegant gatehouse is designed to welcome the large flows of visitors to the world famous gardens. A striking timber roof leans on two volumes, forming an impressive gateway to the park. The stepped roof structure of interwoven isosceles triangles provides shelter, whilst creating an ever-changing play of light and shadow. The gatehouse is the transition between the outside world and the Keukenhof. While walking through the entrance, you will see the beautiful Dutch skies above framed by timber triangles. Look down and you will see an intriguing pattern of triangular shadows on the ground. A fence with a tulip motif marks the beginning of a journey. The gatehouse houses public functions such as cash registers, information desk, retail and restaurant, but also office spaces. The use of wood, copper and brick, lends character to the building without being a distraction from its environment. The glazed facade can be opened almost entirely, blending the interior with the exterior.

An engaging work of two landscape architects, João Nunes (PROAP - Estudos e projectos de Arquitectura paisagista) and João Gomes da Silva (Global Arquitectura Paisagista). The minimal design and the political urban decision to give the Tejo River back to Lisbon's inhabitants and tourists is praiseworthy.

Taiping Financial Buildinghttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/China/Shanghai/Taiping%20Financial%20BuildingShanghai, China
Designer: Nikken Sekkei
Contributed by: Nazar

This project is at the center of Lujiazui financial district of Shanghai Pudong, next to famous buildings such as Jinmao Tower and World Financial Center. To the northeast, it faces the central green land of Lujiazui with rich scenery resources. It will become another icon of Shanghai as a global financial metropolis. The office building design is an architectural icon of the region. Starting from its height, functions, relationship with the surrounding buildings, floor layout, and the unique marks on its exterior, the building applies simple contour with richly diversifying surface treatment to achieve the effect that it changes with changes in natural light. This makes it stands out from the surrounding, which expresses the pioneering and transparent corporate image of the Chinese insurance corporation.

Perez Art Museum of Miami https://www.mimoa.eu/projects/United%20States/Miami/Perez%20Art%20Museum%20of%20MiamiMiami, United States
Designer: Herzog and De Meuron
Contributed by: add-om

The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is a contemporary art museum that relocated in 2013 to the Museum Park in Downtown Miami, Florida. Herzog & de Meuron's design for the new building is highly responsive to the city's climate and the needs of a young, rising art museum. The three-story building sits upon an elevated platform and below a canopy, both of which extend far beyond the museum's walls, creating a shaded veranda and plazas. Working with local and international landscape designers and horticulturists, the architects use this space to ?bring the park into the museum? in new and innovative ways. The new building for PAMM has drawn critical acclaim. For example, the Wall Street Journal stressed that their design could be instrumental in making the museum a destination and the New York Times called the design "spectacular" The Perez Art Museum Miami was chosen for the 2015 America Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Professional Awards.

Ingelheim Funeral Chapelhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Germany/Ingelheim%20am%20Rhein/Ingelheim%20Funeral%20ChapelIngelheim am Rhein, Germany
Designer: Bayer & Strobel Architekten
Contributed by: schwarzplan-pl

As an essential element of the redesign of the cemetery, massive quarry-stone walls were built, made of the typical local yellow-grey stone. They block off the cemetery from the street, enclosing it as a place of peace and contemplation while also acting as retaining walls separating the entrance area from the more elevated parts of the cemetery used for burials. As the heart of the cemetery, the funeral chapel is made into a natural part of the entrance area through the use of quarry stone for its facade as well as in the interior. The result is a sophisticated series of interior and exterior spaces with finely modulated transitions. Cemetery and funeral chapel are perceived as a harmonious unit and become an inseparable whole. The funeral hall itself exudes a bright and friendly atmosphere. To do justice to its significance within the cemetery complex, it is clearly marked with a gable roof.

Hollyhock https://www.mimoa.eu/projects/United%20States/Los%20Angeles/Hollyhock Los Angeles, United States
Designer: Frank Lloyd Wright
Contributed by: archraulgonz

Hollyhock House (1919–1921) is Frank Lloyd Wright’s first Los Angeles project, representing his earliest efforts to develop an architecture style for Southern California. Wright himself referred to it as California Romanza, using a musical term meaning 'freedom to make one’s own form'. Hollyhock House is a remarkable combination of house and gardens. A series of rooftop terraces extend the living space and provide magnificent views of the Los Angeles basin and Hollywood Hills. Wright and Barnsdall worked together to develop a plan that included a home for Barnsdall and her daughter, 2 secondary residences, theater, director’s house, dormitory for actors, studios for artists, shops and motion picture theater. Because of financial and artistic differences, only the main home and two secondary residences were built. Feb 2015 it reopened after several years when a major restoration was completed. The original garage was outfitted as a brand new visitors center, museum store and archive.

Madrid Housinghttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Spain/Madrid/Madrid%20HousingMadrid, Spain
Designer: Morphosis
Contributed by: archraulgonz

The model that Morphosis developed in the Madrid Public Housing, located in the PAU of Carabanchel, provides a responsive alternative to conventional housing blocks. Instead of a rigid tower structure essentially owned by no one, they suggested that a rhythmic structure would better resonate with the patterns of a neighborhood. With various levels of social association, communication, and organization, the scheme is simple, respectful of traditional dwelling customs, and flexible enough to be updated and altered as needed or desired. Changing the typology of housing is a slow process; however, it is faster and more effective than changing an entire New Town configuration.

Nefs headquarters and exhibition hallhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/South%20Korea/Seoul/Nefs%20headquarters%20and%20exhibition%20hallSeoul, South Korea
Designer: Y GROUP
Contributed by: MASIL

The exhibition hall is located in the 2nd and 3rd floor, other exhibition area and design lab are in 4th, and headquarters office is located in 5th~7th stories. The point is that the architect suggested organization of space without boundaries in the form of that the exhibition area is inside of the office and the office is in the exhibition place. In other words, the whole stories are exhibition hall and the office at the same time. For clarify Nefs's identity, the architect placed a teamaking room at the entrance of the office place, at the opposite side of an elevator hall. In addition, the project team distinguished 7th floor where executives' offices are located by making supreme kitchen even for secretary's office. It means each teamaking room is in frontal side and represent every office. It is a challenging idea for the kitchen furniture firm and new concept reflecting Nefs' identity. Kitchen furnitures are centered around every office.
