Cultuurhuis De Klinkerhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Winschoten/Cultuurhuis%20De%20KlinkerWinschoten, Netherlands
Designer: Atelier PRO
Contributed by: Atelier_PRO

The Cultuurhuis (House of Culture) in Winschoten is a building in which expression in all possible dimensions will be practiced, performed and admired. In this cultural centre where various visitors come together, a theatre, a music school and a library are connected with each other by means of the central location of the foyer. The building functions as an intermediary between the old city centre and the northern, wider arranged urban redevelopment and extensions. The Cultuurhuis is situated on the edge of Winschoten's intricate centre, which is characterized by two-layered brick houses, in Groninger clay. This small scale atmosphere has been transformed in the Cultuurhuis by using horizontal, floor-high bands that both attract and revolt.Due to these horizontal sections, roundings, overhangs and extraordinary brick detailing that are reminiscent of the Groninger expressionism, the building has a very strong own identity. Thanks to these sections, a sense of human scale is created.

Maternity Hospital and Oncologic Center Parkinghttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Spain/A%20Coru%F1a/Maternity%20Hospital%20and%20Oncologic%20Center%20ParkingA Coruña, Spain
Designer: Diaz y Diaz Arquitectos
Contributed by: DiazyDiazArquitectos

The new building provides a parking area, creating a new area with a public space and a pedestrian connection between the two health centers. The building consists of 4 floors of covered parking, plus the roof floor parking facility and the new access to the plaza that connects to the Oncological Center. The parking stories are divided into two levels with a height difference of 1.60 m, creating a system of staggered intermediate floors, connected by ramps located on the longitudinal axis of the building. A large volume containing the main stairs of the building, saves the great difference in height, and allows the pedestrian connection between the two centers connected with a walkway that extends to the Childrens and Maternal Hospital. This nucleus becomes a landmark, giving character to the buiding, so it was very important to work its image.

Public School extensionhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Spain/Sada/Public%20School%20extensionSada, Spain
Designer: Diaz y Diaz Arquitectos
Contributed by: DiazyDiazArquitectos

The Project plan consist, in the first place, of the expansion of the centre with new teaching spaces capable of meeting the needs of the present, according to regulations, so that they are functionally integrated with the existing building. Secondly, the value of the modernist building through the elimination of the prefabricated buildings and the negative impacts, recovering the outdoor space for games. Thirdly, the opening of the assembly to the excellent views enjoyed by the plot, looking for the landscape integration and improvement of the environment, redefining in that area the maritime facade of Sada. The architectural solution is an external building, in the basement, that takes advantage of the slope toward the promenade and opens to it with a glass facade that is integrated into the slope, with a minimal visual impact, using a basis of slats of wood painted with the colours of the existing vegetation. This new building is set up as a new basement of the modernist building.

The Edgehttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Amsterdam/The%20EdgeAmsterdam, Netherlands
Designer: PLP Architecture
Contributed by: RichardZeinstra

Amsterdam's Zuidas area is rapidly emerging as one of Europe's most significant business districts, with excellent connections to the public transport, cycle route network, and new high speed train station. The project is the first of this scale which will achieve a BREEAM-NL Excellent sustainability certificate. The work space is organized around a grand 15-storey atrium, a window animated by circulation bridges, lift cores, and office activity. The base of the atrium is activated by a grand café, a restaurant, exhibition spaces and conference facilities. The atrium is the lung of the building, ventilating the office space. The shape of the building allows north light into 60% of the offices. East, west and south walls have smaller openings in a dense load bearing structure; on the south, photovoltaic cells shade the openings. (source: PLParchitecture)

Designer: Zaha Hadid Architects
Contributed by: Nazar

SKY SOHO (Lingkong SOHO) is designed by world-famous architect Zaha Hadid, and is her first architectural work in Shanghai. The project is a large development comprised of a compelling mix of office and retail space with a gross floor area of approximately 350,000 square meters. Situated near Shanghai Hongqiao transport hub. The building envelope is defined by four elongated elements tied together by a sinuous retail podium and a continuous metallic ribbon that wraps them - a calligraphic gesture which will be highly recognizable. Such simplicity is contrasted by the added complexity of a "squeeze" applied to the middle area.

Designer: Team V Architecture
Contributed by: renatevschaik

The strategy behind the transformation of one of the largest office buildings from the 1970s was to preserve the positive features and renew what needed to be improved upon, thus bringing it into line with current building standards and regulations. New glass facades have given the formerly colossal structure a more open ambiance by allowing light to penetrate deep into the heart of the building. Surrounding the building is a mature garden that will be extended into the atrium. The transformation has also made the building more energy-efficient, while the streamlined new layout has provided room for 2,800 flexible workspaces and a working environment for 4,000 employees.

House of Provincehttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Arnhem/House%20of%20ProvinceArnhem, Netherlands
Designer: Team V Architecture
Contributed by: renatevschaik

The combination of a new building with the renovation of an existing monument will provide the Province of Gelderland with a sustainable and modern office with a historic character. A 21st century interpretation of the distinctive visual language of the monumental House of Province, a Gesamtkunstwerk from the fifties, is used for the design of the new building. The application of cultural, architectural and physical connections makes the building ensemble into a recognizable whole. Several new routes cross the complex. They improve the contact between inside and outside, add life to the urban fabric and restore the connection between Market and Rhine. The existing courtyard is covered with a durable roof of ETFE pneumatic panels and functions as the reception area and logistic heart of the whole complex. A grand sculptural staircase provides a contemporary addition to the Gesamtkunstwerk. During this PPP project a consortium is responsible for design, building, maintenance and opera

Conrad Hotelhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/China/Beijing/Conrad%20HotelBeijing, China
Designer: MAD architects
Contributed by: Nazar

Through its unique form, MAD proposes a new conceptual possibility: the building's "living architecture" seeks to embed itself within the fabric of the rectilinear city much as a plant rises through the crack of a concrete sidewalk. This platinum five-star hotel sits at a busy corner at the East 3rd Ring Road of Beijing's CBD, the city's most modernized district. The exterior facade is a neural network that reacts to the interior grid structure, moving sinuously as it reaches towards the sky.

Chaoyang Park Plaza is located in the central business district (CBD) of Beijing, and is composed of over 120,000 square meters of commercial, office, and residential buildings. The site is on the Southern edge of Chaoyang Park, one of the largest public parks in Beijing. Like the tall mountain cliffs and river landscapes of China, a pair of asymmetrical towers creates a dramatic skyline in front of the park. Ridges and valleys define the shape of the exterior glass facade, as if the natural forces of erosion wore down the tower into a few thin lines. Flowing down the facade, the lines emphasize the smoothness of the towers and its verticality.

House 3Mhttps://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Austria/Linz/House%203MLinz, Austria
Designer: destilat
Contributed by: destilat

The 3M house is based on a holistic concept - everything comes from a single source, from its outer shell to the dining table. At Pöstlingberg in Linz, surrounded by intact nature, destilat has realised its 3M house on a steep property with a view of the river Danube. An essential part of the design concept was to correspondingly incorporate the property's uniqueness as well as the bordering edge of the forest and the magnificent view of the Danube valley. In accordance with the property's topography, the building consists of stepped mezzanines which make the house fit perfectly into its natural environment. Its offset levels, supported by their selected surfaces, create different room heights which define the house's cosiness. Besides carefully selected design classics, the house's furniture predominantly consists of designs by destilat. Yet the dining table "4 to the Floor" was combined with lamps by Tom Dixon.

Sifang Art Museum https://www.mimoa.eu/projects/China/Nanjing/Sifang%20Art%20MuseumNanjing, China
Designer: Steven Holl
Contributed by: archi_traveler

The museum is sited at the gateway to the Contemporary International Practical Exhibition of Architecture in the lush green landscape of the Pearl Spring near Nanjing, China. The museum explores the shifting viewpoints, layers of space, expanses of mist and water, which characterize the deep alternating spatial mysteries of the composition of Chinese painting. The museum is formed by a "field" of parallel perspective spaces and garden walls in black bamboo-formed concrete over which a light "figure" hovers. The straight passages on the ground level gradually turn into the winding passage of the figure above. The upper gallery, suspended high in the air, unwraps in a clockwise turning sequence and culminates at "in-position" viewing of the city of Nanjing in the distance. This visual axis creates a linkage back to the great Ming Dynasty capital city.

Designer: Ovo Grabczewski Architekci
Contributed by: pkrajewski_pl

The name of the city Zory means fire/burnt/flames. In the 12th century, when Zory was founded, forest was burnt in order to open up space for the new city. The building consists of three independent walls that 'swim' next to each other. Their composition and shapes, covered with copper plates, resemble dancing flames. The copper is covered with an HDP layer to avoid patina and maintain a fiery appearance. Spaces between the walls are fully glazed, forming entrances to the pavilion. The walls are made of architectural concrete, covered on the outside with copper and left untouched inside. The floor is paved with black stone, which is continued into the outdoor space. The building has three entrances. There is a multi functional hall and reception/information on the ground floor and an exhibition hall underground with a multimedia show and exhibits devoted to the phenomenon of fire. It is completed by sanitary facilities and technical rooms.
