Elaine Molinar speaks on "Alone, Together & Somewhere In-Between: Modes of Practice in Contemporary Architecture," a panel hosted at AIANY @centerforarch tomorrow, Wed Aug 14. If you're in NYC, join us! Organized by the AIANY New Practices Committee, the panel is the final installation in a three-part series of discussions delving deeper into the way we work, collaborate, and shape practices in contemporary architecture. Providing an overview for the wide range of ways architects are organizing to produce their work, the series hopes to illuminate the ways in which practices are evolving. Each panel focuses on a specific mode of practice, from the solo practitioner to a range of partnerships and experimental collaborations. Tomorrow's talk, “Going Somewhere In-Between,” will focus on alternative practice formats and modes of collaboration. We're excited for a discussion on how working somewhere in between individual-led and partnership formats may offer new directions for practice and expanded opportunities for agency in the discipline. For more information and to register for the event, visit snohetta.com/news. 📸: Calle Huth

The Swarovski Playtower is a five-story, 66-foot (20-meter) vertical playground situated within the spectacular landscape of the Tyrolian Alps. Panoramic views of the mountains from within the crystal-clad tower create the sense of being suspended above the clouds. This summer, the view from the top of the Playtower is even more spectacular: Tightrope acrobat Freddy Nock (#freddynock) has made the exterior of the Playtower his playscape, crossing the top of the building on a 290-meter tightrope, 20 to 25 meters up in the air! If you have the chance to visit Swarovksi @kristallwelten this summer, Nock will be demonstrating his art five times a day. 📷 Gerhard Berger, Swarovski Crystal Worlds, Peter Zöch

Calgary Central Library has been bustling since opening last fall. At its core, the main atrium serves as the primary orientation device for the building, which we designed to allow visitors to quickly grasp the organization and diversity of activities it offers, from the first moment you walk into the building. We're looking forward to returning to Calgary next Monday, July 29, for a roundtable discussion on the design of this project with @calgarylibrary and @libraryfdnyyc, on the "Library as Social Infrastructure," for the 3rd annual International Public Library Fundraising Conference.

Each of the ten elements that are part of the Path of Perspectives are shaped from Corten steel, a material choice that was inspired by the surrounding context and prior interventions. The architectural interventions adapts to the existing technical structures of Nordkette’s avalanche barriers, which are made of the same weathered steel. Larch wood, typical for the local forests, shapes the seating and reclining platforms. Quotes from Austrian philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein, are inscribed on the new architectural features. The words invite visitors to take a moment to reflect over the landscape, both inwardly and out, giving a dual meaning to the path of perspectives. 📷 Christian Flatscher @nordketteinnsbruck #nordkette

In the alpine landscape of Innsbruck's spectacular Nordkette mountain range we have designed the Path of Perspectives Panorama Trail. The Hungerburg and @nordketteinnsbruck funiculars bring visitors directly from the city center to the Seegrube cable car station at 1,905 meters above sea level, where the Path of Perspectives unfurls in breathtaking alpine surroundings. Every element, from the benches to the viewing platform, marks a unique point along the trail. The viewing platform, which seems to grow out of the terrain, elegantly projects over the edge of the landscape and emphasizes the topographical changes. Standing on the platform, visitors can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Inn Valley below, while the metal grate underfoot gives a sense of floating above the terrain. 📷 Christian Flatscher #nordkette

After winning an anonymous competition in 1989, we received our first commission to re-conceive the great Alexandria Library in Egypt. The design was inspired by the democratic spirit in which the institution was envisioned, consisting of large public spaces. The great reading room – the largest open reading room in the world – expanded the public space even to the inside of the building. The library remains as one of the few open spaces in Alexandria. The design of the library is both timeless and bold. Its vast circular form alongside the circular Alexandrian harbor recalls the cyclical nature of knowledge, fluid throughout time. Its glistening, tilting roof recalls the ancient Alexandrian lighthouse and provides the city with a new symbol for learning and culture. A mural to those who died in the Arab spring revolution was constructed by young revolutionaries in 2011. It depicted the Bibliotheca Alexandrina as the fourth pyramid alongside the great monuments of Giza. #bibliothecaalexandrina

In progress: Here is a look at some construction images of Le Monde’s new headquarters in Paris, showing how its distinct exterior with the pixelated matrix of glass with varying degrees of transparency, translucency, and opacity is coming along nicely. The glass represents the pixilation used by newspapers like Le Monde, creating a homogenous character when viewed from afar, but at the same time revealing a greater level of complexity as the viewer approaches – like headlines and detailed content in a news story. The Le Monde Group is an icon in the media world and its long-standing reputation of integrity and quality is a measure for media houses worldwide. Their new headquarters will be located along the Avenue Pierre-Mendès-France. The brief of the competition to design their new headquarters presented a plot divided in two parts, but by connecting these, we’ve created a space for more collaboration and connection across disciplines and departments. The result is a building that works like a bridge, literally spanning across the site that is the roof of the train station of Gare d’Austerlitz. The building is expected to be completed by the end of this year. @lemondefr 📷 @lucabargagli @spcitrone

The content of the Munch exhibition at the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) is documented through a bilingual book called “Edvard Munch: Landscapes of the Soul”. The book is designed by Snøhetta, produced by Göteborgstryckeriet and co-published by the @MunchMuseum and @Ithra. Designed with two front covers, the book can be read from left to right in English, and from right to left in Arabic. The graphic contrasts between the Latin and the Arabic alphabet has become a part of the visual expression of the book. The cover of the book is partly bound with a cropped detail of the famous “Scream” lithography – the most iconic work in the exhibition. 📷 @goteborgstryckeriet

Following the completion of the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (also known as Ithra) in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, Snøhetta has been commissioned by the center to develop the design for the exhibition “Edvard Munch: Landscapes of the Soul”. This marks the first time that the great modernist painter is showcased in the Arab world, and it is the first exhibition by a Western figurative artist in Saudi Arabia to date. The exhibition is located in the Center’s Great Hall – an up to 13 meter-tall, multipurpose space. Composed of five small, asymmetrically formed pavilions that reference Norwegian cottages, the angled pavilions provide a sharp contrast to the organically shaped space in which they are placed. The pavilions are arranged around a central space referring the Norwegian “hyttetun” – an open, central gathering place associated with Norwegian farmhouses. The pavilions are made of plywood, the surface of which references many of Munch’s wood cuts and provides a warm atmosphere to the room. The inside walls provide a clean backdrop to the raw human emotions expressed through the art pieces. The exhibition is curated by Lars Toft-Eriksen of the @munchmuseum and will be on display at the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture until the end of August, 2019. 📷@ithra
