Happy Wendsday!! How was your Spring Break??? Ours was really relaxing and full of celebration specially becuase Jesus has risen!!
Today’s post is about the “Grand Teton National Park” which is located in the USA in Wyoming.
This majestic place is formed by large mountains in peak forms, and on the slopes there are extensive plains covered with sage and you can also find glacial lakes at its base, creating a world-famous landscape that attracts nearly four million visitors per year.
In this wonderful place people can do many activities; in summer people are usually hiking, walking, wildlife watching, shooting, camping, backpacking, climbing, fishing, swimming or taking boat rides, fast canoes and bicycles. In the winter skiing and snowshoeing tours are popular activities.
This place is a unique option to fill you with energy and to enjoy nature while enjoying its beauty.
A new year means a new beginning, new adventures, new goals and one of our goals this year is to become more organized with our uploading schedule. So we decided to upload a new post once a week specially on Thursdays!! So be tuned to see more about our contents!
On today’s post we will talk about an amazing museum; the Zentrum Paul Klee Museum. This is a beautiful project located in Bern Switzerland, created by Renzo Piano; an italian architect. The building was created in homage to the great painter Paul Klee; one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
The museum is located near Schöngrüng, northeast of Bern. In the middle of a meadow of green tranquility this museum looks like if it was implanted in the ground. There is a forest in the background and the Alps on the merits, in which the building tries to blend into.
The design of the museum is based on curves emerging from the ground forming an arch and arriving to the floor again, and the intention is to adapt the project to the surrounding environment.
The structure is made of steel girders, and the facades are made of glass, combining these materials in the exterior with grass and a diversity of vegetation; the principal materials used in the interior are combined with oak on the floor.
We think that good architecture is one that really adapts to the enviroment and Zentrum Paul Klee Museum achieves it!
Happy New Year!!!! We hope 2015 would be a year full of success for all of you!!
In this post we want to share a virtual project, called “Sleuk Rith Institute” this is an incredible project from the amazing architect Zaha Hadid.
This place was created for the purpose to support an integrated community of local, regional and international professionals in a highly innovative facility combining a Museum of History, a Research and National Policy Development Center, and Academy of Genocide, Conflict and Human Rights Studies.
The design embraces the timeless humanitarian values and rich culture of Cambodia while transitioning away from traditional genocide and memorial architecture.
Here is the virtual tour, enjoy it!!
