Pantone于近日公布了2020年度代表色“经典蓝”(Classic Blue),并将其描述为一种沉稳而宁静的、能够“强调我们对于迈向新时代时可依靠的稳固基础的心愿”的色彩。放眼建筑行业,来自丹麦的事务所Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects将这款经典蓝运用到了其最新的两个大型项目当中: 伦敦的威斯敏斯特城市学院,以及格陵兰的Katuaq文化中心。

Pantone recently announced its color of the year, and 2020 will be the year of Classic Blue. Pantone describes Classic Blue as a calm and restful hue that “highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” In architecture, Danish firm Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects has woven Classic Blue into two marquee projects – the Katuaq Cultural Centre in Nuuk, Greenland; and the City of Westminster College in London.

City of Westminster College

威斯敏斯特城市学院主校区的设计旨在为新的教学方式提供支持。占地2万4千平方米的校园与英国一般的大学相比要大许多。学校坐落在伦敦市中心的Paddington Green区域,原先的建筑修建于1960年代,效率低下且逐渐荒废。新的改造项目以由内而外的方式重新设计了建筑,在满足不同使用者群体的需求的同时回应了当地的敏感环境。最终,建筑被赋予了简洁而现代的特征,并且展示出独特的北欧文化底蕴。

The flagship campus for City of Westminster College in London is designed to support new ways of teaching and learning. The 24,000m2 college provides much greater amounts of open learning spaces than typical colleges in the UK. The College is located in the heart of Central London at Paddington Green on the site of its previous building, an inefficient and failing 1960s block. The building has been designed from the inside-out, responding to the needs of the diverse groups who use the College, as well as taking into account the sensitive local context. It appears as a clean-cut, modern building with a distinct Nordic heritage.

Katuaq Cultural Centre in Greenland


The foyer of the Katuaq Cultural Centre in Greenland serves as an indoor public piazza and is divided into separate areas by three free-standing geometric structures housing the main facilities of the Cultural Centre: a square box for the TV studio, a triangular structure for the café and a circular form for the multi-purpose auditorium. The auditorium seats 550 people and can also be used as a cinema, theatre, concert hall or conference hall.
