Even in the age of instant information, museums enthrall us. Lining the tourist guidebooks of cities across the world, art museums are a must-see destination for visitors and locals alike. However, as our methods of communication and archiving change, driven by science and innovation, historic institutions such as art museums must keep up.

In cities around the world, art museums are redefining themselves to respond to the contemporary, experimental demands of the 21st-century. In Buenos Aires, the architecture of art museums showcases a diverse catalog of form, materiality and atmosphere, blending the instant, flexible demands of the modern age with a historic role of archiving some of humanity's most evocative works. 

Below, we paint a picture of Buenos Aires' diverse art museums, showcasing the changing nature of exhibition architecture in one of the world’s most energetic cities.

Contemporary Architecture Captured by Mexican Photographers

17 March, 2018 - 10:00
via Portada via Portada

The history of Mexican photography has contributed to highlighting Mexico's presence in the world. Photographers like Elsa Medina, Lola Álvarez Bravo, Graciela Iturbide, Maya Goded, and Juan Rulfo have masterfully portrayed the life of the buildings, houses and the streets of a rapidly built, nineteenth-century Mexico. 

As a consequence, the contemporary scene of Mexican photography has become a fundamental tool for architecture and has contributed to a better visual understanding of the works that are erected every day.

Photography and architecture are two disciplines that go hand in hand and whose relationship has been reinforced thanks to the digital tools that we currently have. For that reason, we have compiled the work of contemporary Mexican photographers who record our walk through the world we live in and contribute to constructing the image of contemporary Mexico.

David Chipperfield's Amorepacific Headquarters in Seoul Photographed by Laurian Ghinitiou

Amorepacific, Korea's largest beauty company, occupies a site in the centre of Seoul, Korea. Their headquarters was designed by David Chipperfield Architects as a single clear volume, with large urban openings and a central void. In the middle of a bustling downtown landscape, the building strikes a bright, open figure.

The Amorepacific HQ took three years to complete and opened in 2017. The firm described the building as "abstract and gestural," with hanging gardens that provide dramatic views over the city and the mountains in the distance. The design echoes aspirations of mediating between local and global, private and public, collective and individual, formal and informal. Laurian Ghinitiou captures the identity of this dynamic headquarters.

Owning a pet is a full commitment, maybe even more than romantic relationships. We usually spend on food and medical needs for our pets, but it doesn’t stop there. Just like preparing for a baby we buy all the possible equipment or furniture for them like cribs, walker, play pen etc. Our pets also need to feel at home and buying them furniture can help them adjust to living with us. It is very important as some furniture is essential for our pets’ well-being.

Here are the five of the most important and beloved pet furniture in the market.

Whether you have a dog or a cat, maybe even a pot belly pig, these adorable pets need a spot to rest and sleep. Some of us might want them to sleep beside us on the bed but it’s always better to give them an option. There are many things that you need to consider when buying your pets’ bed; size, material and design are some of the things to keep in mind.belgian-shepherd-dog bed

Ore Dock. Duluth

17 March, 2018 - 01:10

Un ore dock es un muelle largo que incorpora una estructura para vehículos en la parte superior. Esta peculiaridad permite que se incorporen tolvas de descarga que conectan a los vehículos con los barcos atracados en el muelle. La mayor parte de este tipo de muelles son lo que comúnmente se denomina “cargaderos de mineral” aunque en ocasiones sirven de descarga de grano. Estas construcciones, formaban parte, junto a la gran red ferroviaria norteamericana, de un complejo sistema comercial. Al realizarse casi todas en un periodo corto de tiempo, y formando parte de una red superior, su estructura constructiva es pareja.
Los muelles de Duluth en Minnessota, son un ejemplo de este tipo de construcciones. Construidos en 1884, los muelles operaban con hasta 284 tolvas. Poco a poco se incrementaron en número de puntos de carga, en función a la capacidad de carga de los barcos, pasando de 2500 toneladas iniciales a 6400 en 1898 y 15000 en 1938.
La estructura inicial de los muelles de Duluth era de madera, una estructura de entramado pesado. A medida que aumentaba la demanda, las estructuras se quedaban obsoletas, así iban poco a poco siendo sustituidas con la cosntrucción de nuevos muelles de acero y hormigón armado. En general el entramado tanto en madera y acero, se compone de pórticos muy arriostrados. En hormigón, los pórticos igualmente se mantienen, pero se arriostran mediante la rigidización de la base. Con la construcción de otros muelles a orillas del lago, comenzó su decadencia.

Ore Docks. Escanaba

17 March, 2018 - 01:10

El puerto natural de Menominee, en la zona este de Escanaba, Michigan. Los primeros muelles fueron construidos en 1865. Y ya en 1884 los muelles y las vías de tren que llegan a ellos se encuentran a pleno rendimiento. En este caso los trenes permiten en transporte de mercancías y también de personas, aunque fueron planteados inicialmente como vías de transporte de mineral, especialmente, acero.
La longitud y capacidad de los muelles corresponde a la capacidad de los barcos a los que serían capaces de servir. Cuanto mayor son los barcos, más altas han de ser las tolvas, lo cual implica reconstruir constantemente el muelle. La demanda de acero hizo que los muelles se ampliasen en longitud. El desarrollo y ampliación de estos muelles llevaron al declive a los muelles de Duluth.

Ore Docks. Marquette

17 March, 2018 - 01:10

Los muelles de Marquette, se encuentran en la Upper Peninsula de Michigan. Construido en la década de 1850 debido al descubrimiento de un gran yacimiento de hierro a cargo de William A. Burt. Este descubrimiento fue posible debido a la perturbación de algunos objetos como los relojes, debido a los campos magnéticos.
Comenzó la construcción de muelles, con cierta prisa, a principios de los 1850, pero fue en 1857 cuando se construyó el primer muelle específico para la explotación minera. La explotación minera no cesaba de crecer, y sólo se vio afectada por la Guerra Civil Americana. En 1862, se construyeron más muelles, incluyendo uno de madera. La estructura con la que se realizan los muelles es análoga independientemente del material con que se construya: se trata de pórticos muy seguidos y robustos que se arriostran en sentido perpendicular. Interiormente y, para distribuir correctamente las cargas horizontales del tablero superior, se disponen tornapuntas que mueren en los soportes verticales garantizando también la rigidez en la parte superior y así poder resistir cargas dinámicas.
