World Architecture Developments in Feb 2008

Tianjin buildings : de Architekten Cie.

Sustainable Building : Keppie Design

Halmstad Library : schmidt hammer lassen
The building’s internal layout is essentially one single open space, flexible and highly legible: the light and airy structure creates a synergy between the structural columns and the trees outside. The atrium functions as a fulcrum for the entire scheme and also provides vertical connection for the library’s three floors. Surrounding the atrium is the information plaza: an active zone containing reception, computer terminals, exhibitions, a café and a stairway to the balcony floor, and to the stacks in the basement.

City of Westminster College : schmidt hammer lassen
The new flagship Campus for City of Westminster College by schmidt hammer lassen architects is designed to support new ways of teaching and learning. The 24,000 sqm building, won in an architecture competition in 2006, provides much greater amounts of open learning spaces than typical colleges in the UK and holds state-of-the-art facilities for both students and staff. The building is designed to embrace interaction and diversity. The College is located in the heart of Central London at Paddington Green on the site of its previous building, an inefficient and failing 1960s block.
