hankook technodome by foster + partners breaks ground in korea

a research and development center for hankook tire has broken ground in daejeon, korea – home to a growing number of asia’s large technology and engineering corporations. designed by foster + partners, the ‘honkook technodome’ will comprise highly developed laboratories and offices alongside integrated social spaces designed to nurture a culture of collaboration and innovation. instead of the conventional arrangement of offices placed above double-height testing areas, the building is arranged as five fingers, comprising parallel work stations and industrial units. responding to a thorough analysis of the organization, the dynamic and versatile positioning promotes visual and physical interaction between laboratories and departments.

These presidential libraries are getting trite. How about something more imaginative?

Yacht Club de Monaco, Monaco

Foster + Partners-designed Yacht Club de Monaco enjoys official opening celebrations

The Foster + Partners-designed Yacht Club de Monaco has opened to much fanfare, attended by HSH Prince Albert II, Lord Norman Foster and the wider design team. The club’s members were also welcomed to the new facility which takes its inspiration from traditional sailing vessels and integrates sustainable design principles throughout.

Referred to by the practice as ‘a celebration of sailing’, the Yacht Club de Monaco rises on the waterfront through a series of terraces that resemble decks, offering far-reaching views out to sea and inland to the nearby Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit. Lord Foster said: “The building is a little like a city in microcosm, with schools, parks, offices, restaurants, a network of interior circulation ‘streets’ and a hierarchy of public and private, social and functional spaces.

“It is a continuation of Monaco’s dense urban fabric, as well as the Yacht Club’s traditions and will be an important part of civic life. Every child in Monaco learns sailing at some stage during their education and those lessons will be in the new building - as a result, the Yacht Club will become even more rooted, in a public sense, in the Principality and part of its cultural and urban fabric.”
