Enlargement National German Library \ Gabriele Glöckler
David K. | November 17, 2013

The fourth extension of the German National Library in Leipzig is bold and unconventional. According to the architect, Gabriele Glöckler: “The concept ‘envelope – cover – contents’ translates the function of the building into architecture. “Function creates form”, is the architect’s motto. “The contents are protected by a compact cover around the repository area. A lighter envelope forms the exterior shell and connects the separate areas”, she explains. “Allusion is made to both Leipzig’s musical tradition and the German Music Archives by using façade elements in graduated tones of red to interpret Bach’s Goldberg Variation number four.”

... The Museum and its site are at the foothills of the Wasatch Range: The 17-acre site is located on the high “bench” that marks the shoreline of ancient Lake Bonneville and offers breathtaking views in all directions.

The building rests on a series of terraces that step up the hill and lay along the contours of the site, with minimal disruption to the adjacent natural landscape. In addition, running and hiking trails in the immediate area are preserved and enhanced...

Is This Converted Train Station The World's Largest Startup Incubator?

In a 300,000-square-foot former transit hub, the owner of Le Monde is opening up a sprawling startup space in Paris called 1,000 Start-Ups.


The pitch for new startup incubators is usually about filling ever-smaller niches: an incubator for social innovation, an incubator for breweries, an incubator for foreigners who can’t get visas.

But an incubator in Paris is looking for the opposite of niche, as one can tell from its name: 1,000 Start-Ups.

Billed as “the world’s largest startup incubator" (and one-upping the U.S.-based incubator, 500 Startups), the project plans to turn some 322,917 square feet of a former railway hall into what looks like a giant greenhouse of startup activity. “These spaces will include co-working areas, a fablab, a large auditorium, meeting rooms, large work spaces, and a huge bar-restaurant open 24 hours a day,” says a press release. It’s primarily funded by Xavier Niel, a telecom billionaire who co-owns the Le Monde newspaper.
