  • Rendered model of Meath + Navan Town Council urban/masterplanning competition proposal by Hall McKnight.

The loosely colonnaded character of the building’s facades speaks of its civic role – the language seeks a sense of dignity, gravitas and permanence. The close inter–relationships of the building’s elements recalls classical urban conditions where the open gesture of the colonnade invited social vitality – just as we envisage the foyers of the building welcoming occupation for both formal and informal purposes.

    I used to design just like this. A public building composed of two grey building volumes wrapping around or puncturing each other floating above the ground plane… Yeah, I am a boring designer.

“I am starting to think that space is not a significant part of our preoccupations in life. Just time, that spills and slips between our fingers when we try to catch it.”
“Sospecho que el espacio, en realidad, no forma parte de nuestras preocupaciones vitales, sólo el tiempo, que se derrama y escapa entre los dedos cuando intentamos atraparlo.”
From The last words of Luis M. Mansilla, which he spoke during the presentation of a book on the architect Enric Miralles 
    Photo of the Quinta Do Portal Winery (2008) in Sabrosa, Portugal.

The new cellars of Quinta do Portal were built within an already built complex, a unit that dominates and is dominated by the landscape (of vineyards).

That door detail is pretty awesome.
