ARCHITECTURAL PILGRIMAGES

I have been fortunate to work with the architects whose sense of design, thoughtfulness and thoroughness of approach to the new projects, resulted in architectural, or preservation projects, which have been exciting to work on.

There is nothing better than being excited by one's job, when this job comes from the long lasting passion. Like the photography in my case.

I have recently realized, that I am an 'architectural junkie'... Between the projects for the clients, paid projects, I spent most of my time searching for the architectural marvels to shoot on my own, for my own portfolio.
When I find something I am excited about, it's a long lasting 'fix'.

Since the beginning of my career in photography, I was involved in shooting architecture - starting from the badly preserved, ancient architecture during my archaeological contracts, to working for the architectural companies in New York.

However, I embark often on a sort of 'pilgrimages' to the visit the objects created by the best architects of the modern era. This sort of 'pilgrimages' push me to travel (sometimes long distances) to have a chance to photograph examples of a great architecture, like F.L. Wright's "Falling Water", Johnson's "Glass House", or others, like those shown here.

'PORTA NUOVA' Area Development by Cesar Pelli & Associates (primarily), and others
(with cooperation of: NORMA Engineering).
Milan, Italy

The center of the Milan, near Porta Garibaldi - the sector called La Porta Nuova (The New Gate), for the last ten years gradually has been becoming an 'island' of the most modern architecture, and a commercial and cultural success. I have been visiting it for years, always pleasantly surprised by its development - finally decided to document it for my portfolio. Here we go...

'MACIACHINI CENTER' - Redevelopment of the post-industrial area of the city - Cooperation of: Maurice Kanah (Kconsult Engineering Srl), Sauerbruch Hutton Architects, Alessandro Scandurra, Italo Rota and Paolo Pasquini (Elementary Studio).
Milan, Italy

MAC 1-2-3-4 - Buildings for offices, by Maurice Kanah (Kconsult Engineering Srl). (Developer: Europa Risorse - Doughty Hanson). Completed in 2009.
The buildings to the South-West of the area constitute the first phase of the Maciachini Center project. The permeability of the spaces that articulate them and the materials of the external covering, glass and corten steel, create at the same time a strong relationship with the context and a new urban reference.

MAC567 - Buildings for offices, by Sauerbruch Hutton Architects (Developer: Doughty Hanson & Co Real Estate)
Redevelopment of a former industrial area in the center of Milan.

MAC9 Zurich Insurance Company Italian Headquarters
The building by Alessandro Scandurra is the product of a contemporary thought that intends to overcome the classical division between different building typologies and that questions itself on the relationship between nature and architecture.
The ground floor is designed as a piece of landscape, flows smoothly through the overlying volume, connects the various dimensions of the existing building, integrating the spaces destined for the archive and the functions in closer contact with the street, in an articulated system of paths that lead to the great central void, a garden with tall trees topped by the inner courtyard. This space is inspired by the intermediate Piranesian places, interior and interior spaces that connect different spaces and times. A giant order of pillars directly supports the first floor that is that of the elevated square, a large terrace that overlooks the garden and concentrates the corporate community functions, a hub of distribution paths to the main and secondary nuclei of the offices.

Puppet Theater and Puppet Museum - by Italo Rota
The soundstage and the museum are the culmination of the green area within the new Maciachini Center block: an integrated project, in which the underground car park, the park above and the new buildings interpenetrate creating opportunities for exchange between interiors and external, whose fundamental example is the large basin that becomes a natural outdoor theater area.

Food Park - by Paolo Pasquini (Elementary Studio)
The concept for the Food Park draws strength from the idea of a building immersed in an urban forest, and constitutes a green diaphragm that runs parallel to the new project road, mitigating the impact of Kconsult and Sauerbruch Hutton office buildings on the central space.

Office Building and Fitness Center - by Italo Rota
Two introverted and very characteristic buildings enclose the central green space of the new block towards Via Imbonati.


'CITY LIFE MILAN' by Zaha Hadid Architects (tower and residences) - with cooperation of Studio Daniel Libeskind (tower and residences) and Arata Isozaki & Associates (tower).
Milan, Italy

A new neighborhood is taking shape in Milan, and if the first completed structures—apartments by Zaha Hadid and Daniel Libeskind—are any indication, it could be a model for urban development in the United States.
(...)

Moving the Fiera di Milano—the giant complex of trade-fair pavilions that annually plays host to shows like the Salone Internazionale del Mobile—to a Massimiliano Fuksas, Hon. FAIA–designed compound on the outskirts of the city in 2005 freed up a 90-acre tract with transformative potential just 3 kilometers from the famous Duomo. A decade ago, two large insurance companies, Generali and Allianz (which formed a development corporation also called CityLife) won the right to develop the site in a competition, thanks in part to a master plan by New York’s Studio Daniel Libeskind, London’s Zaha Hadid Architects, and Tokyo’s Arata Isozaki & Associates. The plan turns most of the site into curving bands of lawn alternating with forest (42 acres of it public), with groups of commercial and residential structures floating like “archipelagos” amid the greenery, as Daniel Libeskind, AIA, put it on a recent tour.
(...)

The greenery flows into a vast plaza in the middle of the site that fluidly unites three showpiece office towers: a 50-story slab by Arata Isozaki, Hon. FAIA, with gently undulating glass walls; a twisting 43-story tower by Zaha Hadid, Hon. FAIA, that will rise out of a winglike shopping-galleria base; and a curving 30-story tower by Libeskind. A stop on a new subway line (under construction) feeds the development from beneath the plaza.

'STADELHOFEN STATION' (Railroad Station) by Santiago Calatrava
Zurich, Switzerland

The Swiss Federal Railways commissioned the expansion and redefinition of an existing railway station in the heart of Zurich on Stadelhofen Square with a program calling for the accommodation of a third track and the creation of a commercial arcade. Calatrava's design encompasses not only the passenger platform and commercial arcade, but a canopied promenade, three contrasting bridges, stairs, elevators as well as the support of the power cables. In collaboration with Arnold Amsler and Werner Rüegger, the design competition for the expansion and redefinition of the existing Stadelhofen Station in Zurich's suburban rail network was Calatrava's first award-winning project.

Located in the heart of Zurich on Stadelhofen Square, the new station will be the first rapid-transit system to be built in Switzerland and was intended to become the key inner-city node. The program call for the accommodation of a third track and the creation of a commercial arcade. but because of the challenges posed by the site, the project was far behind schedule. The station was to be built in a dense urban area between Stadelhofen Square and the Hohenpromenade Hill, once a bastion of the old city's fortifications. In collaboration with Arnold Amsler and Werner Rüegger, the competition's initial design proposed access to the platforms through a sub-terranean passage, which can be reached only from the old station building.

To ease the passenger flow, this design was altered to provide stairs and escalators to each side of the old building. The station was thus transformed into a linear environment, where trains can be approached quickly from all directions. Options for accommodating a third track were a tunnel (the more intricate but less intrusive approach) and an open excavation (the quicker solution). Calatrava proposed a compromise that respected the terrain but could be implemented without delay. He demolished the old retaining wall, undercut the slope and retained the hill with a concrete box-beam with convex soffit, supported at the rear by an anchored and piled wall and supported by a series of slanting, tapering, triple-point columns at the front.(...)

'KUNSTHALLE ZIEGELHÜTTE' (Art Gallery Brick Hut) by Robert Bamert Architekten
Appenzell, Switzerland

KUNSTHALLE ZIEGELHÜTTE (Art Gallery Brick Hut) by Robert Bamert Architekten.
The Kunsthalle Ziegelhütte was donated by Heinrich Gebert and opened in spring 2003.
The brick factory, which dates back to the 16th century, was converted in spring 2003 (construction 2001 - 2003) by the St. Gallen architectural practice Robert Bamert into a multifunctional cultural center.

The conversion was done with three themes in mind:

'House in the House':
In order to create contemporary conditions for art exhibitions, a precisely cut new building made of exposed concrete was inserted as a "house in the house" under the main ridge of the brick building. It forms a bridge over the preserved brick kiln dating back to 1566. The two large volumes of the kiln and the new building enter into a dialogue in the large open interior. The contrast between steelworks in wood and the concrete art cube can be experienced spatially. From the outside, the intervention is through the roof light on the main ridge and the large opening of the new building on the entrance facade. The kiln with its new iron platform is the central object in the hall-like exposed interior and becomes an original concert venue and venue for events of all kinds.

'Light':
The lighting is an elementary theme for the creation of contemporary exhibition spaces. Light gives the colors luminosity and the art objects contour and plasticity. The natural light is led from the roof light along the exhibition walls through two floors to the spacious hall on the ground floor. The large opening on the ground floor on the east side is complemented by a "panoramic window" on the second floor as a ground-level spatial connection with the exterior space. A sophisticated control system supplements the daylight with artificial light if required.

'Old and New':
The early industrial building ensemble, developed around the kiln of 1566 according to the Bricolage system, was preserved and restored along with important machinery such as the pug mill, brick press, paternoster lift and kiln. The roughness and elemental qualities of the previously used building materials have been preserved with uncut wood, exposed concrete, clinker bricks and raw iron. The entrance area on the ground floor has been uniformly redesigned and now offers the public the convenience of a museum store as well as modern cloakroom and toilet facilities. Cafeteria is located on the mezzanine floor above the kiln platform .

KUNSTMUSEUM APPENZELL (Art Museum Appenzell), formerly: Museum Liner Appenzell, by Annette Gidon / Mike Guyer Architekten
Appenzell, Switzerland

Museum Liner Appenzell (renamed: Kunstmuseum Appenzell)
1999 Mies van der Rohe Award for European Architecture (for Museum Liner Appenzell – finalist )

The museum building, dedicated to the oeuvre of Appenzell artists Carl August Liner and his son Carl Walter Liner, belongs to the category of the monographic museum.

The rooms show a minimum of detail, have bright walls, poured concrete floors, and are illuminated by daylight coming in through windows set in the gabled roof overhead. The total exhibition area is divided into ten rooms, each measuring between 30 and 50 square meter in size.

The varying size of the rooms is generated by an asymmetrically positioned wall running the length of the building as well as intersecting axes that define the spaces in decreasing size from south to north. The alignment of the doorways from room to room may be straight or shifted, allowing visitors to follow a direct or a meandering course through the museum.

Two windows offer a view outdoors and facilitate orientation within the building. A small reading room and a room for slide and video presentations are placed at the north end of the building - that is, in the middle of the museum tour. The building is constructed using in-situ concrete and aerated concrete masonry. Due to the massive construction and the north-orientated roof-lights only minimal climate control is necessary in the galleries. The vestibule projecting from the building volume is made of exposed concrete, illustrating the materiality and compactness of the construction on the exterior.
The illumination of the exhibition spaces, whose gables vary in height and breath, results in a 'zigzag form’ in the building volume. It reminds one, in a distant way, of the rows of gable roof buildings in the Appenzell villages, as well as of the more regular sawtooth roof forms of industrial and agricultural buildings. The roofs are clad in sandblasted sheets of stainless steel in order, on the one hand, to attain a diffusion of the reflected light, while on the other hand, a neutrality of the color temperature. The facades are clad in the same material. The overlapping cladding and its shimmering grey color show a distant resemblance to traditional Appenzell architecture with its shingled facades (and roofs that were once shingled as well) weathered to a silvery grey. The combination of facade and roofing in the same material produces an overall, irregular volume, like a small mountain range against the background of the Alpstein massif.

'ROMA-TIBURTINA' train station by STUDIO ABDR, PAOLO DESIDERI, Rome, Italy - +

The original station was opened 1866. In 2004 it was planned to upgrade the old station to serve 300,000 passengers a day. Work began in 2007. In July 2011 with the virtually complete station the fire broke, originated in the life electrical installation, on the west side of station. It left unusable most of the tracks and the traffic signals, disabling a vital part of the Italian railway and causing major delays on all trains of the country. The structural damage threatened collapse of the building and railways disruption occurred for a long time after the accident.

“The hub of the Tiburtina Station - the new urban center” was the title of the competition held in 2001 for the proposed High Speed Railroad Station Roma-Tiburtina. It was established as a priority to physically connect the neighborhoods Pietralata Nomentano and the one separated by the old railway line.
The project, conducted by the Studio ABDR, winner of the first prize, urban node has been solved recovering paths and axes present in the context.
The proposed redevelopment of the station was designed by architect Paolo Desideri, ABDR Studio. The station, consists of two buildings erected on both sides of existing roads connected by a bridge – gallery erected on roads connecting the station with the two neighboring areas, and Pietralata Nomentano.
Construction includes the improvement of railway infrastructure with high speed, high capacity tracks, improvement of the safety equipment, as well as improvement of the infrastructure of the services for passengers.
The project to improve the station was conducted as part of the Trans-European Transport Network of the European Union. The new Tiburtina Station is dedicated to traditional, regional trains and high-speed rail services on the Milan-Naples line, moving 140 high-speed trains and 290 regional trains daily.

'The Holy Face of Jesus Church (La Chiesa del Santo Volto di Gesù)' by Piero Sartogo and Nathalie Grenon, Rome, Italy

The church of the Holy Face of Jesus represents one of the most successful examples of modern religious architecture in Rome. It's located in Via della Magliana in a Magliana district of the capital. Built in 2003, designed by architects Piero Sartogo and Nathalie Grenon, it was inaugurated on March 18, 2006. Several contemporary artists contributed to the building's embellishment, including Mimmo Paladino, who created the Stations of the Cross and Eliseo Mattiacci, author of the great external cross. The church is characterized by a semi-dome that rests directly on the building, and a large glass-rose window, which illuminates the interior of the liturgical hall and puts it in contact with the outside, overlooking the large “V ". The architecture plays with curved and angular lines, often present in the Magliana district, where archaeological memories contrast with modern structures.

From the structural point of view, the greatest effort was made in the construction of the steel structure, which defines the half-dome. A series of arched trusses connected to each other with corten steel plates have been used for this shell to form a bearing system. This was overlaid with a cast of concrete covered in travertine. Inside the dome there is a light and ventilating structure that addresses problems of condensation in the church hall. The large rose is formed by a circular structure with a supporting function which, for structural reasons, is integral with the reinforced concrete wall in which it is inserted.

'The Jubilee Church (La Chiesa del Dio Padre Misericordioso)' by Richard Meier, Rome, Italy

The Jubilee Church (La Chiesa del Dio Padre Misericordioso), conceived as part of Pope John Paul II’s millennium initiative to rejuvenate parish life within Italy, is located outside central Rome. The triangular site is articulated three ways: first, dividing the sacred realm to the south, where the nave is located, from the secular precinct to the north; second, separating the approach on foot from the housing situated in the east; and third, again separating the approach on foot, from the parking lot situated to the west.

The paved sagrato to the east of the church extends into the heart of the housing complex and provides an open plaza for public assembly. The northern half of the site is divided into two courts: the eastern one is below ground by a full story, providing light and access to the lowest floor of the community center. Behind the church, the elevated western court is separated from the adjacent meditation court by a paved walkway that leads to the parking area.

The proportional structure of the entire complex is based on a series of squares and four circles. Three circles of equal radius generate the profiles of the three concrete shells that, together with the spine-wall, make up the body of the nave. While the three shells imply the Holy Trinity, the reflecting pool symbolizes the role played by water in the sacrament of Baptism. The materials used in the portico—the paving, the wall cladding and the liturgical furniture—allude to the body of Christ’s church while referencing the fabric of the adjacent residential area.

Glazed skylights suspended between the shells are lit by zenithal sidelight, and the nave is enlivened by a constantly changing pattern of light and shade. The light is diffused over the inner volume of the church and varies according to the hour, the weather, and the season, imparting a particular character to the aspects of the interior.

'Pavilion Le Corbusier' by Le Corbusier - restored by architects Silvio Schmed and Arthur Rüegg, Zurich, Switzerland

Pavilion Le Corbusier has reopened to the public in Zurich after architects Silvio Schmed and Arthur Rüegg restored the art museum to its original state.
The colorful museum is the final project built by the pioneer of modernist architecture, and its glass and steel structure was an unusual departure from Le Corbusier's predilection for concrete.
Started in 1964 and completed in 1967, two years after the Swiss architect's death, the four-story glass and steel structure was designed for Swiss gallery owner and interior designer Heidi Weber. Weber commissioned the building to be dedicated to the artistic works of her friend, Le Corbusier.
Pavilion Le Corbusier has a facade formed of large enamel panels painted in white and primary colours, and is topped by a roof terrace accessed by a concrete ramp and sheltered by a distinctive free-floating canopy.
The roof was put in first to shelter the rest of the construction process, including the pouring of the concrete base. Steel frames with a modular design were assembled underneath, then the walls, floors, windows and doors were fixed into place with 20,000 steel bolts.
Each panel is a metal sheet clad with an enameled panel on the facade side and a wood veneer on the interior. Engineer Jean Prouvé helped Le Corbusier with the panel design, integrating neoprene seals for the glazed parts in a style usually used by the car industry.
A chrome cockpit-style micro kitchen occupies a 2.26-metre-long corner of the pavilion, with built-in shelves for glasses hidden in the bright red cooker hood.
Apart from the base and ramp, a singular use of concrete comes in the form of a sculptural free-standing staircase that zigzags through the centre of the building.
Up on the flat roof, curving metal benches line the edge of the terrace, with it's mid-century nautical-style guardrails.
Schmed and Rüegg restored the pavilion, which reopened in the spring of 2019, bringing it up to current architectural regulation standards. The architects also produced copies of Le Corbusier's original tree-trunk furniture designs and his giant light sculptures to populate the museum.
Le Corbusier Pavilion was originally called the Heidi Weber Museum, and intended to be an exhibition space for the Swiss architect's work. Weber is an enthusiastic supporter of Le Corbusier's artistic output.
Le Corbusier was one of the most influential architects of the 20th century.

'Freitag Tower' flagship store by Spillmann Echsle Architekten, Zurich, Switzerland

Spillmann Eischle Arkitecten's proposal for a Freitag store, a factory of tarp-bags in Zurich, Switzerland, shows that a modern building can be made even with modest materials, considered by many as debris.
(after:
architecturalmoleskine )

It seems obvious, but it hadn’t happened until now.

Freitag, the messenger bag company founded by Markus and Daniel Freitag in Zurich, has finally opened a flagship store in its hometown, specifically the industrial, very trendy quarter known as Zurich West. This is where, in 1993, the brothers came up with their idea of making unisex bags from recycled truck tarpaulins, bicycle inner tubes and seat belts, with no two alike. The genius of the idea was that the bags were utilitarian (and environmentally correct) yet individual at the same time.

The materials, the often collage-like form and the playful, inscrutable designs (some with letters and numbers) suggest portable bits of Dada, the movement founded in Zurich during World War I. This wasn’t lost on the curators at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, who, when MoMA reopened in 2004, featured a Freitag bag in its design gallery.

“The idea of the tower is inspired by the history of Freitag,” Daniel Freitag said. “My brother, Markus, used to live next to the same freeway where the Freitag shop is located. The view out of his kitchen window onto the 24-hour truck traffic inspired us to produce bags from used tarps.”

'LA NUVOLA (THE CLOUD)' convention center by Massimiliano Fuksas, Rome, Italy

(at first my own comment: I have tried to photograph 'La Nuvola' twice - in 2017 when it wasn't finished, and this year-2019, when it was supposed to be finished - however it wasn't - quite a contrary. Officially opened for business, and opened to the public for the 'guided tours' - however the tours were cancelled abruptly a week before my arrival. Maybe the third time I will succeed...)

Fuksas has completed the ‘new Rome-EUR convention center and hotel’ in the Italian capital, which forms the city’s largest building in more than half a century. The major complex has been named ‘the cloud’, a moniker that references an independent cocoon-like structure situated at its heart. After 18 years of planning and construction, the scheme is now open to the public (comment: not really).
Located in the business district of EUR, South of the city’s core, the layout follows the simple orthogonal lines of the district’s 1930s rationalist architecture. The complex hosts auditoriums, exhibition spaces, and a hotel. Two squares flank the building, providing venues for various leisure and outdoor activities and offering an area for public congregation.
Designed by Fuksas — the architecture studio led by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas — the complex comprises three distinct architectural concepts: the ‘theca’ — a longitudinally-oriented steel and glass box; the ‘cloud’ — a geometrically undefined shape positioned inside the ‘theca’; and the ‘blade’ — an autonomous edifice containing a 439-room hotel.
Made from a combination of metal, glass and reinforced concrete, the ‘theca’ is the outer-shell and façade of the convention hall and hotel. Internally, 7,800 square metres of new public space hosts both public and private conferences, exhibitions, and large-scale events. the focal point of the scheme is the ‘cloud’, a steel-ribbed structure clad with a translucent curtain measuring a total of 15,000 square meters. This part of the design exists in direct contrast with the rational building that surrounds it, containing an auditorium for 1,850 people as well as various support services.
The final architectural gesture is the ‘blade’ — a separate building split into 17 floors and containing a 439-room hotel. The complex is also fully earthquake-proof with the stiffness of the vertical structure able to withstand seismic waves.
From an environmental standpoint, a number of sustainable features have been integrated within the design. air-conditioning is carried out by a reversible heat pump, capable of achieving high energy performances while reducing electricity consumption. A natural ventilation system, which uses the cool water of a nearby lake, is also in place. Rooftop photovoltaic panels help to produce energy, while simultaneously protecting the building from overheating through the mitigation of solar radiation. A rainwater harvesting system uses exterior panels to collect water and filter it into a storage tank for on-demand use.
The scheme’s internal layout was created with flexibility in mind, with interchangeable spaces able to be reconfigured to accommodate large or small conferences, lectures, and events.

THE NEW MILAN TRADE FAIR by Massimilano Fuksas, Milan, Italy

Created by Massimiliano e Doriana Fuksas Architects, constructed between 2003 and 2005, La Fiera di Milano is one of the most ambicious, and bigest structure (or complex of structures) of the sort in Europe.
Eight huge exhibition halls and multiple conference fascilities are connected and unified by the common walkway about a mile long, covered by the class and steel conopy.
"This project is characterized by a strong central axis, a fluid like-canopy that runs the entire length of the site. While the canopy itself is freestanding, it defies the traditional conception of a canopy as it floats over the adjacent buildings and then dramatically flows down to the ground level in a parabolic vortex fashion. To effectively achieve the free-form shape rhomboidal glazing panes were utilized on the flat portions and triangular panes were used to make the curves.
To accommodate everything that would need to be held in the complex, exhibition halls, auditoriums, conference rooms, restaurants and cafes, meeting halls and office spaces, eight separate structures were designed. By orienting the structures inward towards the central spine the space resembles a central street as natural light penetrates through the glass canopy connecting the structures." (Quoted after

Although located in the relatively empty Rome quarter, there is not too much space to have this object photographed from the distance, to appreciate it's complexity, and a full function. Unfortunately neither a drone, nor a helicopter were available to me...

Feltrinelli PORTA VOLTA Building by Herzog & De Meuron, Milan, Italy

"In December (2016) opened to the public the Feltrinelli Porta Volta complex, the first building in Italy by the firm Herzog & de Meuron that plays an important role in a strategic area of Milan that has been undergoing a far-reaching process of urban regeneration in recent years. For this important project, UniFor, which is part of the Molteni Group, provided the furnishings and partition systems for the three upper floors, including both series products and custom works conceived specifically for the unique spaces by Studio Herzog & de Meuron in collaboration with Coima Image.
The project includes two twin buildings, headquarters of the Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation and the offices of Microsoft Italia, and a large public green area with meeting points, bicycle paths and pedestrian walkways. The buildings were inspired by the simplicity and impressive scale of the structures that characterize Milan’s historic architectural landscape, including the Ospedale Maggiore, the Rotonda della Besana, the Lazzaretto, and the Sforzesco Castle.
The two floors devoted to offices are defined by full-height partition walls adapted to the project specifications, with structure in natural-finish aluminum fixed at the ceiling and glazed paneling inserted in guides concealed in the raised flooring.
The conference rooms and the executive offices are furnished with Naòs System tables and Naòs wall-mounted bookcases. The task areas, offices, meeting rooms, and waiting/lounge areas are furnished with Vitra chairs and sofas, while the break areas are equipped with Dada kitchens with top and backsplash in Corian.
The reading room at the top floor has been furnished exclusively with custom works designed by the architects to complement the forms and geometries of the building. The library tables, also designed specifically for the space, feature frames in painted steel and aluminum, tops in oak, stained in matte black, and lamps by Artemide." (Quoted after

I spent a few days in Milan in April 2017. I only wish I could have access to the interiors of the building(s), as well as the plaza was already finished. The on-going construction prevented me from referencing the complex to the sorounding area of Milan Porta Volta district.

MAXXI (Museum of Art from XXI Century) by Zaha Hadid, Rome, Italy

Again a controversial realisation by Zaha Hadid. Intriguing - yes. A monument to an Architect Zaha Hadid - yes. A good museum - I am not sure...

"The MAXXI is located in the Flaminio quarter of Rome, in the area of the former Montello military barracks. The complex houses two institutions: MAXXI Arte and MAXXI Architecture, aiming to promote art and architecture through collection, conservation, study and exhibition of contemporary works.
Designed as a true multi-disciplinary and multi-purpose campus of the arts and culture, the MAXXI creates an urban complex for the city that can be enjoyed by all. In addition to the two museums the MAXXI includes an auditorium, library and media library, bookshop and cafeteria, spaces for temporary exhibitions, outdoor spaces, live events and commercial activities, laboratories, and places for study and leisure.
I see the MAXXI as an immersive urban environment for the exchange of ideas, feeding the cultural vitality of the city./Zaha Hadid
The MAXXI should not be considered just one building - but several. The idea was to move away from the idea of "the museum as an object" and towards the idea of a "field of buildings". After many studies, our research evolved into the concept of the confluence of lines, where the primary force of the site is the walls that constantly intersect and separate to create both indoor and outdoor spaces. It's no longer just a museum, but an urban cultural centre where a dense texture of interior and exterior spaces have been intertwined and superimposed over one another. It's an intriguing mixture of galleries, irrigating a large urban field with linear display surfaces.
The walls of the MAXXI create major streams and minor streams. The major streams are the galleries, and the minor streams are the connections and the bridges. The site has a unique L-shaped footprint that meanders between two existing buildings. Rather than seeing this as a limitation, we used it to our advantage, taking it as an opportunity to explore the possibilities of linear structure by bundling, twisting, and building mass in some areas and reducing it in others - threading linearity throughout both interior and exterior or the MAXXI./Zaha Hadid."

BIBLIOTHECA ALEXANDRINA by Snofetta AS, Alexandria, Egypt

The decision to rebuild Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the most famous library of all time, was announced in 1989 with the Norwegian architects Snøhetta winning the open international competition for its design.

The new library, built roughly on the site of the original Bibliotheca Alexandrina, is designed as a simple circle, 160 meters in diameter, going from 15.8 meters underground to 37 meters above ground. Seen from above it proposes the image of the sun (Egyptian hieroglyphs show the sun generally as a simple disk).
The partly glazed slanting roof of the main library, has been designed to angle sunlight, at optimum levels throughout the year, down to the desks and shelves set on tiers of galleried floors beneath it.
The composition of the roof grid transforms the traditional elevational aspects; making the roof screen the primary elevation of the building. The roof also operates as a connecting link allowing visual access to the exterior and vice-versa.
The vast curving wall of the Library's exterior becomes its enclosure with slender fluted columns, beneath a sheet of diffuse light, supporting the great roof.
The floor of this 160 meters wide and 80 meters deep space terraces along 10 levels with a viewing platform at each level allowing unobstructed visibility to any destination.
The project includes three main buildings; the Library, a Conference Center (built in 1992) and a new 18 meter tall black, steel and concrete, spherical Planetarium. A special museum for underwater monuments discovered in the eastern harbor is located under the Planetarium. The Conference Center and Library, although independent, share some facilities and the Plaza of Culture. (…)
