A year after the completion of Therme Vals [1996], renowned minimalist architect, completed the design of Kunsthaus [1997].  The Kunsthaus museum in , Austria is always in a constant state of flux always changing its exhibition spaces to accommodate international contemporary art.  Zumthor’s minimalist design adapts its spaces to the art that is showcased in its exhibits creating a coexisting and redefining relationship between art and architecture.

The Kunsthaus Bregenz has two main principles to their permanent collection: archives of art architecture and a collection of Contemporary art, which complements the changing exhibition spaces.  The museum strives to be the intersection of art and architecture that opens itself to culture and international influence.

AD Classics: Maison Bordeaux / OMA

© Hans Werlemann, courtesy

With the ability to make even the simplest and straightforward programs spatially dynamic and in a constant state of redefinition, and his firm OMA have redefined the term that “a house is a machine for living” in their design of Maison Bordeaux.  Completed in 1998, Maison Bordeaux sits on a small cape-like hill overlooking the city of Bordeaux.

The house was designed for a couple and their family, but before Koolhaas and OMA were commissioned for the project in 1994 the husband of the family was in a life threatening car accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down.  Two years after his accident, the couple approached Koolhaas to design them a new home outside of Bordeaux.  Despite having been paralyzed, the man did not want t straightforward house rather he wanted a complex design, stating: “Contrary to what you would expect. I want a complex house because the house will define my world.”
