Architype Review has recently published issues which focus on architecture in libraries, art museums, and performing arts centres. The architecture featured in these issues varies greatly; some is very modern and innovative while other featured buildings are very simplistic and classical in style. In addition to providing great images of each structure Architype Review provides descriptive details on the space and its construction.
Some of my favourite featured heritage institutions in Artchitype Review include:
- The Safe Haven Library in Thailand. This library is part of the Safe Haven Orphanage and was built in 2009 using local materials and labour. The structure is fairly simplistic but the building was designed to meet the specific needs to the library. A great timelapse video which shoes the construction of the library and be seen here.
- The Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The
Wild Beast Music Pavilion
- The Wild Beast Pavilion in Valencia, CA is a unique recital hall and outdoor performance space. The space is multipurpose and is used for instruction, enclosed concert space, and open air recital space. The numerous functions of the space combined with the visually pleasing design is what appealed to me about this particular design.
