Hosted on CERN’s Meyrin site adjacent to the Globe of Science and Innovation, the architecture of the Science Gateway celebrates the inventiveness and creativity that characterise the world of research and engineering. Architectural elements such as tubes that seem to be suspended in space evoke the cutting-edge technology underpinning the most advanced research that is pushing back our understanding of the origins of the universe. @cern @fca_group @loterieromande @fondazioneagnelli #CERNScienceGateway #PortaildelaScience #CERN #RPBW #newproject #geneva #geneve #meyrin #architecture #science #tube #pavilion #fcagroup #loterieromande #fondazioneagnelli © RPBW

RPBW is proud to announce the start of a new project: the CERN’s Science Gateway, a new scientific education and outreach centre targeting the general public of all ages. Funded through external donations, the project forms part of the CERN’s mission to educate and engage the public in science, and to share knowledge and technology with society. Construction is planned to start in Geneva in 2020 and to be completed in 2022. @cern @fca_group @loterieromande @fondazioneagnelli #CERNScienceGateway #PortaildelaScience #CERN #RPBW #newproject #geneva #geneve #architecture #pressconference #science #fcagroup #loterieromande #fondazioneagnelli © RPBW

For the Paris Courthouse project, Rpbw developed the “Table goutte d’eau” (the “Water drop table” ) for some of the civil courtrooms. This oval shape invites the judges and parties to discuss and find a compromise, in line with the general philosophy of the new courthouse, to create a welcoming, open and human Justice. #TribunaldeParis #ParisCourthouse #inauguration #tablegouttedeau #oval #ovalshape #ovaltable #courtroom #civilcourtroom #justice #newjustice #rpbw #architecture © @denancemichel

The Paris Courthouse is entered from the ground-level forecourt into the Public Lobby, represented by a great atrium called the “Salle des Pas Perdus”. The rectangular atrium is up to 28 meters, and is notable for its slender steel columns and the amount of natural light that enters through its skylights – “the Marilyns” – and through the glazed façade that looks over the forecourt, allowing natural light to penetrate to the heart of the building. #TribunaldeParis #ParisCourthouse #inauguration #Rpbw #architecture #salledespasperdus #atrium #lobby #light #marilyn #paris #batignolles © @denancemichel

Inside the construction site of the Emergency Children’s Surgery Center, Uganda. To meet the environmental challenges, the hospital is made in “Terra Pisè”, a local construction technique based on using “terra cruda” that provides buildings thermal inertia, through a simple but functional installation, keeping temperatures and humidity constant all over the year. @emergency ong #Emergency #ngo #childrensurgerycenter #childrenhospital #Rpbw #architecture #constructionsite #terracruda #terrapise #terra #earth #Entebbe #Uganda © RPBW, ph.

The architecture of the new city gate is very restrained, giving an impression of strength and austerity, stripped of extraneous decoration that would undermine its timeless, honest quality. A new ‘hard stone’ quarry on Gozo was opened up specifically to provide stone for this project. The stone use for the Parliament’s facades has been sculpted by a numerically controlled machine. The result is a stone architecture that is fitting for its historic context but also the product of cutting-edge technology. #VallettaCityGate #Malta #Rpbw #stone #stonequarry #Gozo © Michel Denancé

The Valletta City Gate project includes the Malta Parliament. The building is made up of two massive blocks in stone that are balanced on slender columns to give the building a sense of lightness, the whole respecting the line of the existing street layout. The northernmost block is principally given over to the parliament chamber, while the south block accommodates members of parliament’s offices and the offices of the Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition. #VallettaCityGate #Malta #Parliament #MaltaParliament #stone #Rpbw © RPBW, ph.

RPBW Partner Antonio Belvedere will hold a conference at MADE Expo tomorrow at 12pm in Milan. Antonio will speak about steel, through diverse projects of the office and in particular the Valletta City Gate project. Thus the first objective of this project was to reinstate the ramparts’ original feeling of depth and strength and to reinforce the narrowness of the entrance to the city, while opening up views of Republic Street. The relationship between the original fortifications and those that have been reconstructed is made clear by the insertion of powerful 60mm-thick steel ‘blades’ that slice through the wall between old and new. @madeexpo #VallettaCityGate #Malta #Rpbw #madeexpo2019 #madeexpo #conference #steel #material © Michel Denancé
