Milwaukee Art Museum Announces Exhibition to Celebrate 10th Anniversary of Calatrava's Awe-Inspiring Quadracci Pavilion

 

Almost 10 years ago, Santiago Calatrava debuted his famous Quadracci Pavilion at the Milwakee Art Museum. The design for the amazing shaded pavilion and sun screen was conceived back in 1994 and at the time of construction was considered unprecedented. Calatrava’s design was considered challenging and required a significant amount of custom work. As part of the 10th Anniversary, the museum will honor Calatrava and his design for the museum with a special exhibition starting in September 2011.

Temporary Beach Volleyball Stadium for 2012 London Olympic Games

Populous, the London 2012 Olympic stadium architect and official architectural and overlay design services provider for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and Atkins, the UK's largest engineering and design consultancy, will transform the iconic horse guards parade in London into an Olympic venue for the beach volleyball, competition taking full advantage of its historic and central setting.

The solutions provided include taking the standard components available for temporary stadiums and creating the same feeling of permanency as the main games venues. Pre-existing modular components will be hired to create a bespoke court. In keeping with both populous and atkins' low carbon ethos, following the games, the venue will be dismantled, leaving no trace on the location, and can be reassembled and used in other locations.
