Maison Edouard François, in partnership with ABC Architectes, has won the competition for the requalification of the former Ray Stadium into housing, landscaped gardens, shops, sports facilities, and parking, beating other competing firms like Herzog & de Meuron and Rudy Riciotti.

Located in Nice, France, the project aims to provide its swiftly growing neighborhood with a “new green lung” by mimicking the form of a vegetated hill and incorporating elements of classic Niçois architecture like white stone and wood. The reinvented stadium becomes a bridge between the urban and natural landscapes, linking new constructions of the Boulevard Gorbella with the new Ray Park.

This new park will additionally be integrated into the city block on one level, stretching over all the buildings and covering the façades and roofs. Furthermore, the façades will host climbing, flowering plants and the rooftops will be entirely planted.

A construction in the interior of the city block will be raised and placed on pilotis, in order to broaden and extend the presence of nature. Underneath this garden object, the spaces that have thus been freed up will be accessible and open to the public, for new domestic and leisure activities – explains the architects in a press release.

HASSELL has unveiled a contemporary new addition to the Geelong Performing Arts Centre in Geelong,Australia. Just over an hour south-west of Melbourne, the complex is a significant hub for the growth and promotion of the arts in regional Victoria. Over its illustrious 35 year life, it has built a reputation as one of the premier performing arts spaces in the state, and the $38.5 million upgrade will cement its prominence.

The redevelopment centers around a new entrance and facade, completely redefining the building’s street presence. Contemporary and sleek, the addition sits atop the current building at an angle parallel to the existing roof pitch. The new entrance also provides a crucial upgrade to the building’s accessibility and amenity.
