The Architectural Review - August 2008
In this month’s AR Kieran Long looks at Alvaro Siza’s new pavilion at the Insel Hoimbroich Foundation, the latest addition to a modern art campus in an extraordinary post-military landscape in the Ruhr.
Up in Anchorage, in remotest Alaska, David Chipperfield’s latest art museum has just opened and Brian Carter investigates how to make a distinguished new civic building in a harsh frontier town. Catherine Slessor visits Granada to see Alberto Campo Baeza’s new Andalusian Museum of Memory, a characteristically reductivist composition which duels with his earlier headquarters for the Caja Granada.
And Rob Gregory reports from Noosa Head in Queensland (a place nicknamed ‘the land of the long weekend’) on a funky tourist centre by Bark Design. Plus a modern rustic church in Poland, a Indian house with balls (literally) and how Japanese practice SANAA designed and built this year’s show stopping Serpentine Pavilion.
