New Naturalis Biodiversity Center Opens
Naturalis, the Dutch National Biodiversity Center, designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects in collaboration with fashion designer Iris van Herpen, brings science and public together in new spatial ensemble.
The new building design in Leiden, The Netherlands forms a sustainable ensemble of existing buildings and new-build, with each activity housed in a specific form. The central atrium connects the various parts of the institute: the existing offices and depots with the newly built museum and laboratories. The design of the atrium consists of a three-dimensional concrete structure in the form of interlocking molecules as a lace of ovals, triangles and hexagons. The filtered light that enters through the circular windows as a ‘glass crown’, reinforcing the monumentality of the space.
The main staircase leading up to exhibitions resembles a mountain path, becoming narrower at the top with enough space to welcome Trix, the 66 million years old T-Rex. The exterior of exhibition halls with stone blocks in horizontal layers mimicks a geological structure. The layers of stones are interrupted by friezes of white, concrete elements designed by Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen. Inside the museum, Dutch designer Tord Boontje shows colorful wall panels, visual stories that blend photography and drawing to reveal the wonders of the natural world.

This Dutch architecture practice celebrates highest point of construction Herman Teirlinck building in Brussels
Construction of the new office building for the Flemish Government in Brussels has reached its highest point. The building is located along the canal on the site of Tour & Taxis, one of the large-scale development locations in the heart of Brussels.
The project’s meandering shape creates a diverse building volume of 66.500 sqm that integrates naturally with the urban blocks along the Havenlaan. To establish an attractive working environment for the 2.600 employees, a low-rise building of six layers was chosen. A vertical accent of 60 meters makes the project recognizable in the skyline of Brussels.
The Herman Teirlinck building is characterized by a covered inner street that runs through the entire length of the building and aligns with the inner street of the Royal Warehouse. All common functions for employees, such as restaurants, reception rooms, auditoriums and meeting spaces are connected to this street. On the upper levels, the office floors are situated around four large green winter gardens that are encased in glass.
The Herman Teirlinck building will become the largest energy neutral office building of Belgium, completion is expected for mid 2017.

Neutelings Riedijk Architects designs a 180 m high skyscraper in Paris
Neutelings Riedijk Architects has made a design for a 180 m high office tower, ‘Le Cinq’ in Paris, commissioned by Brussels developer Buelens NV as one out of four teams for the international competition organized by the City of Paris. The results of this competition are currently on show in an exhibition in the Pavillon de l’Arsenal in Paris from July 2nd until August 20th.
The new skyscraper serves as the focal point for the east of Paris in the new urban development of the XIIIth arrondissement, near to the Grande Bibliothèque. The tower consists of a stacking of five separate volumes of six stories each, cantilevered from two vertical cores with open space between the volumes. Each block has an open inner court and a vast roof garden. In this way, a new type of green urban skyscraper has been developed that combines the quality of a low-rise urban fabric with the potential of high-rise tower.
The tower holds 110.000 m2 of above ground floor surface of office spaces, a 300 room hotel and a shopping center, as well as ten underground parking levels. The 180-meter high tower will be the first major high-rise building in Paris since the Montparnasse Tower and the Riverbank Towers in the 1970’s.
