Renzo Piano – the architectural genius behind the world renowned Shard in London – and his team at Renzo Piano Building Workshop, are busy working on a. Renzo Piano is a man whose work is reinventing architecture in projects scattered around the world—from a Mixed Use Tower in Sydney, Australia to the .

Renzo piano ppt 1. Introduction 2. Characterized by: His architecture is defined as solid construction made by excellent materials. Take advantage of the topography to the relationship between the internal spaces and also to the outside. Renzo Piano designed a building capable of integrating with nature, in tribute to one of the most prolific and profound artists of modern times.

Now that the fact of these appearances is no longer shocking, attention focus on ho w they are done. Twenty years, on the escalator remains a phenomenon, and the plaza continues to thrive, but the exhibition spaces themselves, and the rather dry, regular block shape of the overall building, are beginning to come across as almost a little dull. High tech. Renzo Piano was the lightness of the artist's sense of belonging and light. It was therefore decided to create a place, raise the land, making land available for a work of art itself.

As if it were more of a survey done by a knowledgeable farmer, rather than the result of an architectural methodology. So he designed three hills. Three waves that rise and from the ground. With different dimensions, the three waves traverse the ground like a sculpture or the result of the same nature.

L ongitudinal section T ransverse section Space Each has a different function undulations therein. The first and larger, a seat auditorium, and art workshops for children.

In the second wave, the middle, smaller than the first, is the permanent collection of Paul Klee, and temporary exhibition spaces dedicated to In the third one, the least of all, lies the research and management.

Cultural center Tjibaou It is a community center, and in turn educational museum. The exterior is made of wood, wind filter a second layer of glass shutters that open and close natural ventilation.

To the left from the entrance, two balconies project from the upper floors, reached by visitors through a beautifully clean glass elevator. On the right, a grand wood and glass staircase descends beneath the ground. The lower level is an important element in the Morgan expansion. This design serves a practical function, in allowing more square footage without building a tower that would appear out of place among the four-story historical buildings, but also a symbolic one.

So this building is a bit like an iceberg with quite a lot below grade. By separating new and old with negative space and designing an atrium reminiscent of an Italian piazza, Piano successfully created the feeling of a miniature city within one building.

Visible Cities Milano: Triennale, , Two and a half centuries later, a few Harvard professors were again on the forefront of another academic pursuit. Harvard University was one of the first institutions to develop an art history department, then called the Division of Fine Arts. The first president of the Division, Charles Eliot Norton , was fundamental in organizing the program. Norton was strongly influenced by the department of natural sciences at Harvard and their laboratory system.

In this way, the most crucial element of the Division of Fine Arts at Harvard was the establishment of the Fogg Museum, which housed all of these functions, in the early s. Norton, along with the first two directors, Charles Herbert Moore and Edward Waldo Forbes , centered the studies on original works and participatory learning.

Harvard U Art Museums, , pg. The building was not well- suited to the requirements of the Division of Fine Arts for multiple reasons. The entrance hall served as a gallery, which left no space for unpacking; space for storage was severely lacking, the galleries were poorly lit, as the ill- designed skylight illuminated only the lower half of the walls; and the small lecture hall had poor acoustics.

The aesthetic of Hunt Hall was also controversial. One of the major donors was alumnus Paul J.

Forbes and Sachs visited many philanthropists and collectors in New York, including J. See Figure 1. Figure 1 The specifications for the new building were determined by Forbes, the director at the time: Rogers, but were meant only as an initial point of departure for discussion, and were later altered by Charles A.

See figure 2 Its wide, two-story facade is symmetrical in massing and decoration, with two slightly projecting wings of four bays each on either side. The large windows on the first floor have simple moldings and unadorned pediments, the lintels and sills are classically light-colored wood to contrast the red brick, with blind windows above.

A low parapet wall over the heavy cornice with dentils holds a decorative baluster segment above each bay. The only other decoration is Figure 2 centered on the entrance, where a glass paneled door with a fanlight is enclosed with Corinthian pilasters that support a bulky, almost Baroque,! Their influence was clearly apparent in the layout of the Fogg Museum building, where the classrooms, galleries, and labs were carefully arranged to increase accessibility for students and visitors, maximize space, and create ideal lighting for the functions within.

In , the Busch-Reisinger Museum was founded, its collections centering on art from German-speaking northern Europe. The Arthur M. An East Wing was added to the rear of the building, dedicated the Naumburg wing on November 9, , consisting of three rooms to increase space for galleries and social functions.

This new wing, named Werner Otto Hall, established a two-story facade on Prescott Street and a larger, curving three story volume rising behind. Werner Otto Hall provided many necessary amenities, including a larger library, a Figure 4 new reading room, an archival storage room, and additional galleries. Samuel Anderson Architects designed a renovation and expansion of the Naumburg wing called the Agnes Mongan Center, which provided a climate- controlled space for the collections and curators of works on paper.

Sackler Museum — and the resources to observe and study those collections — were housed in one building. The Fogg had also experienced two additions only a decade earlier. However, it would also be beneficial for the University to have one larger museum on campus for other reasons.

New buildings designed by star architects that house large collections attract more visitors, generate more revenue, and receive more funding.

Italian architect Renzo Piano was hired in to design the structure but the project was scrapped due to neighborhood opposition. Finally the decision was made to combine the three collections at the site of the existing Fogg Museum.

However, the interior and its mechanical systems were now outdated, and the multiple additions on the rear of the building created a mismatched exterior appearance. Piano was hired once again to design a complete renovation and expansion of the building, after the demolition of Werner Otto Hall and the Naumburg and Agnes Mongan wings.

The goal in designing the addition was still centered around the original mission of the Fogg Museum: The site presented to Piano was extremely challenging.

In addition to the historic Georgian brick facade, the Fogg also sits next to the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, a concrete Brutalist building designed by renowned architect Le Corbusier. On the corner of Figure 6 Broadway and Prescott Street, adjacent to these two iconic structures, Piano! While the Quincy Street Museum entrance remains, facing the campus and Harvard Yard beyond, Piano also designed a second entrance on Prescott Street, the East facade, which symbolically faces the city of Cambridge, opening the museum and its collections to the public.

The new entrance is set back from the street, sheltered under the large boxy form that holds the two upper floors. In order to separate himself from the historic Figure 7 brick facade or the modernist concrete to the left, Piano used a different material. In addition to his usual glass canopies and structural steel, Piano made a surprising choice by cladding the rectangular volume in wood — North Elevation West Elevation South Elevation specifically Alaskan Yellow Cedar.

The material does not look entirely like Prescott Street ay adw Bro wood, from a distance and in photographs it appears much heavier, like Quincy Street Plan N Massing Analysis 10 50 concrete or aluminum paneling. The entryway, hidden under the upper floors, seems small and dark from the street.

One Figure 8 narrow set of stairs leads to the main door, intersected by a long ramp that!

Wise, "Confrontation at Harvard Art Museums. The connection between this wooden clad form on the East facade and the traditional Georgian brick on the West facade is facilitated through a Figure 9 few design elements.

One glass roof spans both the brick and wood forms. From Prescott Street and beyond, the roof can be seen rising over them like a transparent truncated pyramid. When approaching from Harvard Yard and the campus, however, the majority of the pyramid is hidden behind the height of the Georgian facade. From the North and South facade it becomes clear that the roof is not, in fact, one complete pyramid. The physical boundary between the brick and the wood is a narrow strip of glass, North Elevation West Elevation South Elevation stretching from the first floor up through the glass roof.

These Figure 11 projecting elements help create a more cohesive relationship between the! James S. The height of the winter gardens corresponds to the horizontal line of the heavy cornice on the two-story Georgian wings, and the roofline of those wings is equivalent to the height of the rectangular cedar volume.

The relationship between the historical and contemporary architecture at the Fogg Museum is very apparent on the exterior, especially in its jarring contrast of material choice and visual separation using negative space. In the renovation of the Fogg Museum, the interior of the Georgian building was almost completely removed, except for the iconic Calderwood Courtyard. The use of Classical Figure 13! Even more specifically, the use of an exterior Renaissance facade as an interior courtyard had a precedent right in Boston, in the courtyard of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Calderwood Courtyard featured two levels of arcades, square piers support the large arches in the five by three bay plan. The upper bays are bisected in two arches by thin Ionic columns.

Above the attic, mock rafters projected in to the courtyard, supporting Mediterranean tiles, furthering the illusion of a European outdoor city square. Figure 14 See figure Piano removed the third floor of windows and replaced it with two levels of glass, the fourth projecting into the center like a viewing balcony. In the center are chairs and tables for visitors to rest and eat.

Some have compared the light-filled courtyard to a city-square, the hub of activity in the center of the three museums. The Courtyard, as the physical and symbolic center of the museum, is flooded with light through the roof.

Joseph P. The cedar panels on the exterior can be moved seasonally in order to adjust the amount of direct sunlight, closing it off in the hot summer and opening the glass box to the sun in the winter. The winter gardens are also used to display non-light sensitive works, like sculpture. His initial sketch of the interior design shows his plan for a circular flow through the different departments of the museum, focusing around the courtyard. In the same way the galleries ringing the courtyard have no single entrance, but rather multiple ways in.

While the new entrance does not appear as open or welcoming as it could have from the exterior, the door on Prescott Street does have a big impact on the layout of the museum. Because it is aligned with the Quincy Street entrance, the new entrance encourages visitors and students Prescott Street to pass directly through the museum and its iconic courtyard.

Like many older Figure 18 universities, the Harvard museum collection was mainly dedicated to the needs of students, and their collections seemed secluded from the public.

Piano and his new addition, while somewhat heavy and clunky from the Prescott Street facade, is more appealing from the north and south elevations, where he implemented the use of horizontal absolutes, a recessed void, and a unifying glass canopied roof to create a relationship between the historic Georgian facade and his contemporary cedar wing.

After determining these strategies, it is now clear why the Grand Central Terminal addition proposed by Marcel Breuer was clearly inappropriate.

The shocking contrast of materials and the heaviness of the massing dominating the historical building resulted in no relationship between the two architectural styles. The sleek, reflective tower appears completely disproportional to the classical Beaux-Arts style structure below. Support for historical preservation has been growing in recent years, which has led to many design projects similar to the case studies discussed here.

Many historical buildings that house public institutions have become worn with age. Their technical systems become obsolete, their style outdated, and the programs that they hold outgrow them, just like the Gardner, Morgan, and Fogg Museums.

Each of these examples was chosen because the historical building remains intact and the addition is adjacent to! The original structure is a historic bathhouse built in , with a ornamented brick facade. When Belmont Freeman Architects were commissioned to design an addition that more than doubled the size of the original building, they applied many of the same elements as Piano in order to create a dialogue between the contrasting styles.


The new material is brick, to reference the historical facade in color and texture, but is updated with an elongated brick to modernize the appearance. A horizontal absolute is drawn across the facade by the height of the new entrance to the belt cornice above the historic entryway. The use of these elements has had a positive influence on the design, as the Recreation Center has received multiple complimentary architectural reviews and an honorable mention in the Historic Districts Design Awards in This design challenge was similar to the conflict Piano faced!

The museum was doubled in size with the first addition in March of , and expanded again by Marcel Breuer in , and once more in The Breuer addition stands at the rear, a two toned, horizontally striped granite facade contrasting the classical historical building.

The addition, designed by Finegold Alexander Architects in , used similar toned materials, proportionate massing, and a recessed glass connector to relate to the neoclassical limestone facade designed by James Clough in Through these examples, it is clear that the elements used by Renzo Piano are often used by other architects when designing successful contemporary additions to historic public buildings.

Design techniques like corresponding materials, horizontal absolutes, proportional massing, and voids or negative space can be adapted to any project in order to prolong the use of historical buildings while simultaneously creating innovative new designs.

The exemplary work of Renzo Piano can be a model for future projects in order to meet the needs of a growing institution while preserving significant historical buildings. As the need for sustainable buildings grows, the importance of historical preservation will become increasingly apparent. We have to conserve our way out.

Biography of Renzo Piano, Italian Architect

Renzo Piano Building Workshop: Visible Cities. Triennale, I mean, architecture is many, many things. Architecture is science, is technology, is geography, is typography, is anthropology, is sociology, is art, is history. You know all this comes together. Architecture is a kind of bouillabaisse, an incredible bouillabaisse.


And, by the way, architecture is also a very polluted art in the sense that it's polluted by life, and by the complexity of things. Piano honored this tradition when in he named his architecture firm Renzo Piano Building Workshop RPBW , as if it were forever to be a small family business.

Says Piano: "I was born into a family of builders, and this has given me a special relationship with the art of 'doing. Early Career and Influences Eking out a living by teaching and building with his family's business, from to Piano traveled to the United States to work in the Philadelphia office of Louis I. Early on Piano sought out guidance from those who blended architecture and engineering.

His Pavilion garnered international attention, including that of young architect, Richard Rogers.

The two architects formed a fruitful partnership that lasted from to Together they entered and won the international competition for the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
