­Busan Camellian Opera House / by Matteo Cainer Architects

The Busan Camellian Opera House provides a harmonious connection between the existing dense urban fabric of the city and the port with its myriad of waterfront activities. Camouflaged beneath its contoured envelope, it erupts from the landscape in the form of densely planted tectonic petals that connect city and sea, urbanity and landscape, providing a major cultural hub, not only extending Busan’s influence as the gateway to Eurasia, but establishing it as an international maritime city of culture.

Youth Centre in Lille, France / by JDS Architects

YOUTH CENTRE IN LILLE, FRANCE / by JDS Architects

JDS Architects have just signed the contract to execute their first French project for the city of Lille. The Lille project emerges from the idea of creating an urban catalyst, accommodating three distinct programmes on a triangular site. By placing a program in each point of the triangle, we offer maximum privacy while allowing them a closeness and continuity of space, organized around a garden, like a cloister of calm in the center of the city. The lifting of the mass of the programme at the corners illuminates and activates the adjacent public spaces and creates a continuity from outside to inside of the building.
