Architects Đordje Alfirević and Ana Čarapić shared their proposal for the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina, Serbia. As a response to the site conditions, their design is positioned in the center of a park with a uniformed impact on the surroundings from every direction.

In February, HWKN’s ‘Wendy’ design proposal won the 2012 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program (YAP). One of the other four creative designs that competed against the winning design is Cameron Wu‘ proposed ‘Coney Inland’ — an architectural strategy which formally unifies and spatially modulates the challenging MoMA PS1 courtyard site.

Construction will begin this week on the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC designed by architect David Adjaye. Adjaye Associates teamed up with American architects The Freelon Group and Davis Brody Bond to win the design competition for the museum back in 2009, under the collaborative name Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup (FAB).
Sited beside the National Museum of American History and the Washington Monument, the museum will accommodate more than half of its volume below ground. Bronze plates will cover the tiered exterior of the building, perforated in patterns that reference the history of African American craftsmanship.
The museum is scheduled to open in 2015, and you can see the original competition-winning proposals for it in our earlier story. Continue Reading →
