C.F. Møller Selected to Design Vocational School in Denmark

C.F. Møller Architects have won in an invited competition to design a new building for the Herningsholm Vocational School in HerningDenmark. The new building consists of three angular building volumes, brought together under a single sloping roof, which responds to its context among buildings on the school’s campus by going from three stories on the Southern end to two in the North.

The architects describe the building as being “designed inside-out… as well as outside-in”, with a dual focus on providing optimal learning spaces inside but also on providing learning spaces in the three outside areas defined by the building’s volume.

The Gallipoli Peninsula, at the Western end of Turkey, holds a particular significance for the country as the site of a major World War One battle in which the declining Ottoman Empire repelled an attempted invasion by British forces. Today, it is seen as one of the defining moments that contributed to the formation of modern day , and the site of the battle is commemorated by a national park which includes a series of monuments and memorials at the southern tip of the peninsula.

Aiming to consolidate these sites in to a more coherent whole, the Çanakkale government launched a competition to redesign the area. Today we bring you the second place entry, by ONZ Architects + MDesign + Lola + 24H Architecture. Read on after the break for more on their design.

Four Freedoms Park: Louis Kahn’s “Ancient Temple Precinct” in NYC

Built four decades after Louis Kahn’s death, New York City’s Four Freedoms Park - the architect’s posthumous memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt and his policies – is becoming one of the architect’s most popular urban spaces. In a recent article for the GuardianOliver Wainwright investigates what he describes as perhaps Kahn’s ”best project”. Wainwright’s spatial description of the monument is interweaved by fragments of Kahn’s personal history, building up a picture of a space with “the feel of an ancient temple precinct” and “a finely nuanced landscape”. Although Gina Pollara, who ultimately realised the plans in 2005, argues that Four Freedoms Park ”stands as a memorial not only to FDR and the New Deal, but to Kahn himself”, can a posthumous project ever be considered as an architect’s best? Read the article in full here.
