Architecturally Outstanding Higher Education: Singapore University of Technology & Design

Singapore, 2010-2014

Once completed, The Singapore University of Technology and Design, Excellently conceived by UNStudo, of Amsterdam and Shanghai, “will offer four key academic pillars: Architecture and Sustainable Design (ASD), Engineering Product Development (EPD), Engineering Systems and Design (ESD) and Information Systems Technology and Design (ISTD). The New SUTD campus will facilitate cross-disciplinary interaction between all four pillars of academia. The orientation and organisation of the campus is designed through two main axes; the living and learning spines which overlap to create a central point, binding together all corners of the SUTD. These thoroughfares create a 24/7 campus of seamless connectivity. An open forum of learning is established by bringing professionals, alumni, students, and faculty together to interact both on an academic and a social level.”

Panoramic Excellence: Artist Olafur Eliasson For The ARoS Art Museum

Information via Laura Raskin for Architectural Record: “Rendering Denmark’s second-largest city in 52 colors, artist Olafur Eliasson has perched his permanent installation “Your Rainbow Panorama” on delicate columns 12 feet above the roof of the ARoS Art Museum, in Aarhus. Curved glass panels progress along the UFO-like structure. Visitors do, too, as they walk the 490-foot-long circular path, which opened in May. Each laminated pane of glass contains a color foil and was manufactured to withstand harsh weather. Recessed lighting in the walkway sets the building aglow at night. With Viking roots stretching back to the eighth century, Aarhus is a waterfront town and home to architectural gems that get great billing from the installation’s 360-degree views. Eliasson says that “Panorama” is a lighthouse: “The work becomes a compass in time and space.””
