Designer: Peter Zumthor
Contributed by: goa

In the middle of the Bregenzerwald, Peter Zumthor designed a large roof as a window on the expertise of the craftsmen of the Bregenzerwald region. a large, black roof hoovers above the black terrazzo floor - fully glazed around viewing to the mountain. Zumthor has a long-standing relationship with Werkraum, the crafts and trade association in Austria's leafy Bregenzwald region. The association counts 80 makers, builders and artisans - from brick-workers, upholsterers and painters, to cabinet-makers, metal workers, cobblers, and carpenters. The timber and concrete building combines a contemporary, minimalist design with the area's centuries-old local traditions. Equipped with offices, seminar and meeting rooms and display areas, it was designed in painstaking detail to provide a much needed space for the association's activities and also to act as a platform for promoting the work and value of local crafts.

Rijnhaven Bridgehttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Rotterdam/Rijnhaven%20BridgeRotterdam, Netherlands
Designer: Quist Wintermans Architecten
Contributed by: MI_MOA

The Rijnhaven Bridge is the connection from the Wilhelminapier to the Katendrecht peninsula at the Rotterdam South bank. It is a small and modest bridge, compared to the highrise buildings of the Wilhelminapier and te massive harbor structures around. The bridge gives the powerful impression of 'being itself'. The bridge is also a place to hang out and meet each other, enjoying the view and the sun. The form and color of the bridge resemble the cranes of the harbor. The railing is made of wood and a stainless steel mesh, which give comfort and safety.

Climbing Househttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Almelo/Climbing%20HouseAlmelo, Netherlands
Designer: Onix
Contributed by: DennisM

In 2013 the first Onix climbing house was created in the small town of Almelo (the Netherlands). A house, situated at the edge of a new development area in a town like Almelo and designwise unbothered by any municipal inspectorate interference, not only presents the opportunity to live directly adjacent to its garden: it also makes the idea of literally living at a "higher" level seem quite appealing, which indeed was the case for its future owners Tjeerd Willem and Erna. Following this concept, Onix has managed to develop a dwelling for them, which indeed offers multi-level living possibilities as the house keeps on spiralling upward through a large number of different floor levels, till it finally ends in a roof terrace.

Gold Soukhttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Beverwijk/Gold%20SoukBeverwijk, Netherlands
Designer: Liong Lie Architects
Contributed by: Cindy_van_Ling

The Bazaar in Beverwijk is the biggest indoor market of Europe. The Goud souk ("Gold souk") is the new building for the gold dealers and goldsmiths, who gathered each weekend along the Goudstraat ("Goldstreet") at the Eastern Market of the Bazaar. The exterior is defined by a 35 meter long facade that explains the visitors in a glance what they can find here: all that glitters is gold! The entrance is clearly marked. Here, the 'nugget of gold' has opened up to provide access to the 'cave' where the real golden treasures are safely displayed. Contrary to the exterior of the building, which is very visible and prominent, the design of the interior is very modest. Everything is black, even the reflective floors and ceiling. The inverted pyramids at the facade aren't just functional - because of their triangular form they also enhance the design of the facade and match with the character of the Goud souk.

Family house in Palangahttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Lithuania/Palanga/Family%20house%20in%20PalangaPalanga, Lithuania
Designer: Architektu Biuras G. Natkevicius
Contributed by: G_Natkevicius

This is a four-member family house in a seaside resort town Palanga, Lithuania. The narrow site is located approximately a kilometer of pine forest away from the sea. It features a slope and is framed - by a street on the slope foot and a forest wall on top of the hill, towards the sea. All living spaces are lifted above the street level and focused on the forest, while the utilitarian spaces are positioned on the lower level - consequently, establishing the reaction to the intricate landscape besides sparing as much of the site for outdoor activities and for psychological perception of private spaciousness. The house becomes like fingers of a hand submerged into sand, trying to palm it; the back façade seems like a funnel - catching the light, the wind, the nature.

Auditorium Maximum Jagiellonian Universityhttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Poland/Krakow/Auditorium%20Maximum%20Jagiellonian%20UniversityKrakow, Poland
Designer: WIZJA
Contributed by: wizja_krakow

The building's function and form are drawn from classical models worked out in the civilizations of the Mediterranean Sea basin. The main room is inspired by a Roman amphitheatre, in which the central figure was that of the speaker/actor and also allows for spectators' mutual observation and interaction. Geometrical divisions of the facade, in turn, draw from the Greek temple with seven spaces in a colonnade. Yet this order is disturbed by the asymmetric division into two spaces forming the entrance zone. This results from the context and urbanistic order, with the building closing the perspective of Wenecja street. The entrance arcades surrounding the building serve as a meeting space for the academic circles. Plus, they act as a specific type of 'threshold' space, semi-private in contrast with the public character of street space. The main auditorium's structure has been 'rotated' around a central spot to allow for arranging a 'patio'.

Hoogeind is a high density commercial building that allows more space for nature, as part of a pilotproject on bussinessparks on the edge of the cities in Noord-Brabant. The offices are placed on top of other functions to gain a large density on this particular plot. In this way the building becomes more visible from the adjacent highway A27.

Day Care and Elderly Residential Centrehttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Portugal/Lisboa/Day%20Care%20and%20Elderly%20Residential%20CentreLisboa, Portugal
Designer: CVDB Arquitectos
Contributed by: JAMB

The project establishes in the urban point of view, the crossing border between a residential area to the east and an area of several public buildings to the west of the hill. The sixty housing units are distributed in two wings facing east-west, in four floors that interconnect between themselves. The circulation areas and central voids are conceptually founded in a bioclimatic strategy that bring vertical transparency between floors while at the same time create community spaces for gathering. These spaces are flexible enough to allow the users to establish strong affective relations with them. The ground floor is composed of black slate stone volumes in counterpoint to the glazed window areas that host the common social areas of the building. On the exterior, the private garden comes along as a visual continuum of the interior public spaces. The global setting of garden + building helps to resolve some urban tensions that have marked the landscape.

Odontology UFR and CSDhttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/France/Clermont-Ferrand/Odontology%20UFR%20and%20CSDClermont-Ferrand, France
Designer: Philippe Gazeau Architecte
Contributed by: philippegazeau

On the site of the CHU d'Estaing teaching hospital, the shape of the new teaching and research unit (UFR) and dental care centre building (CSD) is designed to make the 2 activities and units instantly distinguishable. Two programmes and a building with enough presence to form a consistent frontage. The slope on the land is used to handle the main street entrance to the UFR on the lower ground floor, and a direct access from the hospital to the lecture theatre on the upper ground floor. The base of the UFR is held together by a large crossing space of twice the height, the entrance hall and the lecture theatre, linking up all the spaces, including with direct access to the lecture theatre from the CHU d'Estaing. The patios running through the volumes of the UFR and the dental care centre help one find one's way around the spaces with extra-comfortable lighting through natural daylight.

Nelson Mandela Secondary Schoolhttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/France/Etampes/Nelson%20Mandela%20Secondary%20SchoolEtampes, France
Designer: Philippe Gazeau Architecte
Contributed by: philippegazeau

Set on the Etampes plateau with a view as far as the eye can see across the natural landscape and farmland, this secondary school is the first building in the built-up Paris area visible from the Beauce plain. The building stands on the boundary between the two regions and has that dual status as a kind of built-up landscape, despite its large scale. The way this landscape-building is sited on the land, is because of the implementation of a number of environmental, architectural and engineering strategies. In its central position in the middle of the land, the building stands well back, thereby relating better with the existing housing estates and broad clear views across the valley. This position negotiates and optimises the school's embedding in a natural dip in the land, affording access on two levels. This semi-underground level increases the building's inertia and leaves the North front with one floor less than the South-facing front.

Necker Hospital Laënnec Buildinghttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/France/Paris/Necker%20Hospital%20La%EBnnec%20BuildingParis, France
Designer: Philippe Gazeau Architecte
Contributed by: philippegazeau

The Laënnec building has a capacity of 404 beds including 120 for intensive care and intermediate care in all paediatric disciplines. The main medical functions are grouped by complete levels and share the same equipment and doctors. On the upper ground floor, paediatric emergencies (70 000 emergencies p/y) are located beside the imaging department, contiguous with the reception of polytraumatised patients, which is next to the recovery room, alongside the 14 operating theatres in the main paediatric surgery block. The medical and technical platform includes paediatric imaging, operating theatres, post-surgery monitoring rooms and the catheterisation laboratory, making a total of 20 procedure rooms. On the 1st floor, the surgical intermediate care beds are grouped next to the intensive care beds, forming a homogeneous unit of 67 beds with direct vertical link to the operating theatres and the medical intermediate care beds adjacent to emergencies.

Anne de Bretagne secondary schoolhttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/France/St-Herblain/Anne%20de%20Bretagne%20secondary%20schoolSt-Herblain, France
Designer: Philippe Gazeau Architecte
Contributed by: philippegazeau

The school stands out in the location as a feature linking a town park, various neighbouring public utilities and the Loire valley landscape. The project fits into the site through an irregular base dressed in timber powerfully set into the slightly sloping land. The base blends in with the immediate vicinity while the upstairs area looks out over the landscape further afield. The tentacular ground floor serves as the entrance leading to all the site?s outside areas both public and private connected to the school?s common and administrative areas. On the upper floor housing all the classrooms, the circular layout around patios makes finding one?s way extremely straightforward and obvious. On the outside, a sunscreen device made up of coloured glass panels perpendicular to the frontage clad in reflective stainless steel offers passive shading on the front of the classrooms, giving the school its hallmark brightly shining image.
