Design and architectural achievements of 2016

Comments

Today, I’m going to talk about some architectural achievements, projects that are making the news in the world of design. They are bold, sophisticated and some of them just outrageous. I wish I could say that all projects I will mention here are going to be finished this year, but some of them are still in a embryonic stage.

We begin this showcase of projects with, as I like to call it, a future achievement. The Pingtan Art Museum, by MAD, is a fantastic project, set in a reservoir, it’s like an island with three galleries shaped like dunes, with a bridge to the mainland. I think MAD it’s the perfect name for this company. What do you think?

Mexican architect Fernando Romero has a great project completing this year – The Latin American Art Museum at Miami Beach, which will contain the most ambitious collections of Latin American art in the world. The building, with four stores high, is envisioned as a cascade of overlapping terraces, offering pleasant and interesting galleries and a series of “sculptural gardens” with the purpose to encourage who passes by to venture inside.
