The grand rooms, majestic staircase and natural lighting of the initial building of the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum created in 1895 were retained in an “updated” modern version of the landmark. Benthem Crouwel Architects envisioned a bold addition for the famous contemporary art museum, situated next to the Van Gogh Museum and the Concertgebouw. The massive white volume provides more space for exhibitions and its interior design is said to blend in with the overall inner appearance of the main building.

The architects describe some of the features of the contemporary Stedelijk museum of art in Amsterdam: “From the entrance, visitors can familiarize themselves with the different routes that are possible through the building. The routing can be controlled by the programming, but is not mandatory in one direction. Thus it is possible to walk directly into the old building to follow the various circuits. The monumental staircase remained and continues to have an important function in the routing.” Amsterdam enthusiasts worldwide, how would you comment on this new architecture addition to the city’s landscape?

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic

Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light
