Where?House in the Argus building, Melbourne, Australia
the corner of La Trobe and Elizabeth streets

By SASHIMI architecture + design

from archidail.com

Quote:
Architects: SASHIMI architecture + design
Location: The Argus, Melbourne, Australia
Production Team: Sasha Hadjimouratis, Starr Guzman, Kevin Karlberg, Steve Ward, Louis McCoy
Year: 2012
Video: Tooth & Claw
Photographs: Christine Francis Photography

Event Producers: Marksthespot & The City of Melbourne
Audio Visual and Stage Producer: 4ward Productions
Fitout Construction: Be Herbitual
Interior Projection Mapping: Kit Webster
Exterior Projection Mapping: Projection Teknik
Stage Props And Visuals: Form Interactive


Where?House was the Hub of Melbourne Music Week 2012, a 10 day pop-up event space held in the Argus building. The iconic yet dilapidated building on the corner of Elizabeth and La Trobe Streets was transformed into a series of spaces hosting live and electronic music, seminars and workshops, a dining hall and bars, vintage clothing, film screenings, projections and art installations.

The existing building, in its crumbling state, compelled each outcome of insertion. Each installation was governed by the constraints of the existing conditions. Balancing the integrity of the event space and safely hosting 1200 persons at any one time was challenging. Upon initial access to the site it became immediately evident that circulation was going to be one of the first most difficult issues to tackle with jumps in slab levels, unfinished floor surfaces, the requirement for stairs and no covered roof. The production team entered a decaying space and slowly began injecting new life forms.

At the event launch the building was breathing again; filled with music, art, food, light and people.

The intention to evoke the warehouse party culture of the early 90’s meant the fitout was kept to a minimal and raw industrial look. Scaffolding was a reoccurring material that was used unconventionally to create picnic table furniture and service fronts for the food vendors and main bar.

The cave-like main dance floor area came to life with projection mapping that changed daily. As the only ticketed area (apart from ticketed events in The Learning Curve – Powered by Intel), the main stage was approached by unassuming visitors.

Entering from La Trobe Street, the main stage was discovered after walking through a wide screened corridor flanked by fencing and a light installation (Image 3) created by Geordie Barker. Turning at the corridor’s corner and following the sounds of reverberating music the full impact of the warehouse space was revealed.

The first floor dining hall, bar and lounge areas were open and free to the public from 11am-11pm each day. The two temporary gantry style stairs were carefully designed to negotiate access in the existing slab void between deep steel beams and formed a pocket of space at ground level as a meeting area and designated smoking area. The stairs were inserted in the cavity void allowing people to experience the view around the two open levels and up through the giant empty space towards the sky.

The market-style first floor also hosted the SONOS Sonic Garden which was filled with plants, lounges and a herb garden. People gathered to eat and drink around the garden spaces whilst listening to live DJ’s and browsing the vintage market.

e Learning Curve (Powered by Intel) workshop space was designed based on the logo curves of event partner Intel. The room was constructed out of 3.6m high natural plywood walls which created a creative learning space nestled in the back corner of the first floor. Music seminars, presentations and workshops were hosted within the Learning Curve (Powered by Intel) which was located adjacent to the free Intel Wifi Lounge.

Where?House gave Melbournians a once in a lifetime experience to wander through the mysterious Argus Building.

Shenzhen Qianhai Exhibition Center, Shenzhen, Southern China

By Shenzhen-based local Architects Urbanus / 都市实践

from archdaily.com


Quote:
Architects: Urbanus
Location: shenzhen
Project Designers: Meng Yan, Zhou Chengsong, Lin Ting, Chen Lansheng, Jessica Cheung, Xie Shengfen, Li Jiajia, Chen Danping
Collaborating Architect: Shenzhen Institute China Academy of Building Research
Area: 4323.7 sqm
Photographs: Courtesy of Urbanus


Structure And Mechanical Engineer: Shenzhen Institute China Academy of Building Research
Contractor: The First Construction Engineering Limited Company of China Construction Third Engineering Bureau
Client: Shenzhen Vanke Real Estate Co. Ltd.



Shenzhen has successfully evolved into international metropolis today – one that is much unlike it’s former self before the reform and resultant policies that have opened up the city 30 years ago. Qianhai, a district located in the west of Shenzhen, has positioned itself as a new urban center, as well as an epicenter in the future development of Shenzhen.

Our project is located in the Liyumen plot within the Nanshan district at the junction of Dongbin and Yueliangwan roads. Yueliangwan forms a boundary that separates the existing and the new Qianhui district. The master plan comprises of longish rectangular blocks, of which, their length sides are parallel to the Yueliangwan Road. This typology creates a situation where the building front faces the road, with the other end of the building having an open vantage. Its architectural form and spatial design collectively tells a story of the city’s present and future.

Qianhai Exhibition Center expresses the idea of the new area’s aggressive breakthrough and structural reform in an abstract way. Its expansive and stretching architectural design along with its simple and impressive spatial language reflect the theme of facing the future.

This ad hoc exhibition center acts as a pioneering project, with numerous prospective construction projects that will follow, transforming Qianhai into a new hot spot. The building is constructed out of membrane material and construction, reflecting the modern context and industry of the vicinity.

Community Pavilion at Jintao Village, Jiading District, Suburban Shanghai, China

By Local Scenic Architecture Office / 山水秀建筑事务所

from archdaily.com


Quote:

Jintao is one of the village units of Dayu village in Malu, Jiading. The village is surrounded by rivers and bamboos.

The site we chose for the new community pavilion locates at an public property by the “T” shape river cross. Since the environment has the spatial quality of openness and aggregation, we designed a hexagonal ring building for the village residence to rest, communicate and have recreation activities. 3 interior spaces contain a recreation room, a teahouse, and a stage facing the grain-sunny ground; whereas 3 semi-outdoor spaces face 3 different sceneries: the concrete bridge to the northwest, the river cross to the southwest, and the little stone bridge to the southeast.

These 6 spaces are defined by 6 radial bearing walls, and surround a courtyard that serves as both the spatial center and the destination of drainage from the roof. We plan to plant a small tree in the courtyard and have a greater expectation when it turns to be a big tree in the future.

Tree Art Museum / 树美术馆 at Songzhuang Art Colony / 宋庄, Suburban Beijing, China

By Local Architect Daipu / 戴璞


from archdaily.com

Quote:
Architects: Daipu Architects
Location: Song zhuang, Beijing, China
Design Team: Dai Pu, Feng Jing, Liu Yi
Area: 3,200 sqm
Photographs: Shu He

Structural Engineer: Huang Shuangxi
Water Engineer: Lei Ming
Mechanical Engineer: Wang Gepeng


Located in Songzhuang, Beijing China, Tree art museum lies beside the main road of the area. Original village has vanished, replaced by big scale blocks which better fit for cars. Even if renowned as artist village, it’s difficult to stay or enjoy art exploration without local artist friend’s introducing. So, the first idea was to create an ambient, a public space where people would like to stay, date and communicate.

I hope people might be attracted into the museum by the view at the entrance. Their eyes would follow the curvy floorslab coming from the ground all the way up to the roof. People could choose getting into the space either through the ramp or the courtyard with a pool and tree on the first floor. Sky is reflected onto the ground, with reflecting pool together, helping people to filter their mind and forget the environment out there.

The first courtyard was separated with the main road and dust outside by a bare-concrete wall. People would stay and chat under the tree in the courtyard, or, just feed fishes by the reflecting pool. Meanwhile, they could enjoy artworks and watch other people lingering inside the building through curtain wall. In the bare-concrete wall, there is a corridor which could be utilized to exhibit books and small sculptures. The curvature varies slightly along the path.

The second courtyard introduces nature light to the back exhibition hall and meeting room on 2nd floor, while separating the public and privacy needed. The curvy wall implies people to the other side of the building, and introduces them to come to the public stairs-plaza on the roof, where people could sit and enjoy sunshine, or look down to the pool or even chat with people down in the courtyard.

There are six and half courtyards on 2,695 square meters site. Besides the two bigger ones for exhibition, there are four more courtyards lying on the upper part. Two yards apply sunlight to the back space and introduce skylight to the exhibition hall below. The other two yards are on the top of the floor, which also open to sky. By taking real and pure expression, this project hopes to create a place where local people and visitors would communicate with nature light, trees, water, and contemporary art. This simple and plain idea will spread out through their experience of this space.
