Projects expected for 2011: Zaha Hadid Architects' Next Gene Architecture Museum

While 2010 is not finished yet, instead of drawing a list of buildings completed in 2010, I continue to draw a list of buildings that are expected to be completed in 2011. Of course the list is not closed and will be completed and updated slowly but surely in 2011.
This post will also conclude the 2010 year.
I would like to add that this blog will probably shift into a webmagazine, precisely more a webnewspaper-type than a webmagazine-type. I say "probably" because I am late and I must hurry up before February. But I will post more information when finished. It does not mean that this blog will be closed but I decided to move into a more flexible project. I have not decided what I will do with this blog yet. Last but not least I wish you all a happy and healthy new year (une bonne année pour les francophones).
Let us move on one of the projects expected to be completed in 2011.

Zaha Hadid Architects' Next Gene Architecture Museum may be one of these constructions to be expected in 2011. Many reviews have been written here and there. I only remind the guidelines of this project.

The Next Gene Architecture Museum is located in Au-Di, Taipei county, northern part of Taiwan. This building is implanted on the end corner of a steep sloping hill.

The museum's skin is perforated so that natural light enter easily the museum's interior and create an interaction between the building and its users.

The museum is designed to both facilitate as an exhibition of architectural works and as an architectural object of itself.

The form of the building is thought to be in harmony with the surrounding landscape.

The structural system of the envelope are based on perforated patterns to make natural light to enter easier the building's interior according to the movement of the sun.

The conic shape of the building makes the building more dynamic and fluid. The fluidity makes circulation inside building performative.

The choice aims at creating an interaction between the users and the building.

Now the question is: how will be this building? Let us wait and see its completion for a more precise review.

This image illustrates the relation of the building's shape, skin and interiors. Natural light penetrates the building via the perforation and allows the users to interact with the building.

Fluidity does not limit only to circulation but also to furniture as shown in the image above.
