Friday, 22 July 2011 06:13

enota-pegan-petkovsek-01The National Gymnastics Centre Pegan Petkovšek is part of the comprehensive renovation of Svoboda Sports Park in Ljubljana. It is the first of the three sports halls that are to be built on the western edge of a belt between an access street on one side and a large greened park layout with sports grounds on the other. The building of the gymnastics centre is placed on the northernmost part of this belt.

The northern and western edge of the building reference the building line regulated by the spatial acts, which also stipulate the greatest built ratio and the height of the building. The strict urbanistic regulations necessitate a very compact design that allows for little deviation.

Antonino Cardillo - Purple House in Pembrokeshire, UK Print E-mail

Nowadays obsession for ethnicity seals national identities. Most people seem to ignore the erratic unfolding of ancient fluxes which moulded European lands. Lost in their dull present, they forget the rich pathways leading from the past to our time.
Cardillo-purple-03

Just a few memories. By the middle ages, between 1130 and 1194, England and to some extent Wales and Ireland, shared with Sicily a common Norman domain: Byzantine mercenaries and recognizers of Arabian culture after capturing Sicily, these conquerors from the North Sea introduced a fascinating network between the shorelines of the north and Mediterranean. Making British history for the first time since the Roman era, they broke once more the islands’ isolation. Introducing the number zero and many innovations from Middle-Eastern regions into Europe – not least bringing back ancient Greek and Roman classical text manuscripts – they laid the foundation for the birth of a Modern European era.

Shanghai-glass-museum-12Located in Shanghai’s Baoshan District, this former glass-manufacturing site covers a total area of around 30,000m2, and includes thirty existing buildings of various age and scale. logon proposed a 20 year strategic development plan, renaming the site to G+ Glass Theme Park (Glass, Art, Research and Technology Park). Phase one includes the Shanghai Museum of Glass and a hot glass show.

Implementing a museum within the first phase of the development will help to shed some light on the Baoshan district where it is located and its community. As the site location is not well known, the museum should help in increasing the value of the surrounding land. Following phases of G+ Glass Theme Park include a sculpture yard in phase two, a science park in phase three, and a business park in phase four all supported by commercial facilities planned to be complete by 2018.
