Oloron-Sainte-Marie Multimedia Center | materialicious


Oloron-Sainte-Marie Multimedia Center

Pascale Guédot has brought sustainable architecture back to Oloron-Sainte-Marie in southwestern France, a town that was once an industrial wasteland. The Oloron-Sainte-Marie Multimedia Center is now an eco friendly community gathering spot where an abandoned beret factory once stood. With the multimedia center, Pascale Guédot and Michel Corajoud built public architecture that complements its environment; there is access to the riverbanks and a public promenade. Inside, the center is green with an atrium in the heart of the building as well as green in the eco-friendly sense with large windows to provide natural light and a view of Pyrenees.

Bierpinsel - Turmkunst.

The Bierpinsel (google maps) is a 46m high Berlin building in futuristic-looking "poparchitecture" from the 70ies, designed (1972) by Ralf Schüler und Ursulina Schüler-Witte. The building is now in use (and painted) by "Turmkunst" - a collective devoted to streetart.
