This week, we're sharing projects from Rotterdam to Seattle, England to New Brunswick, with several stops in between. In addition to the projects that we give more detailed coverage, we like to highlight some of the work that architecture firms share with us every day through the Project Gallery—the user-generated portion of our site. So far, we have more than 14,000 projects, most of which were directly uploaded by firms to share with us and our readers.

In this weekly roundup, we showcase some of the coolest new projects to be added to the gallery—thanks to architects like you.

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
Rotterdam, the Netherlands

In this addition to the existing museum in Rotterdam, "Mecanoo introduces a transparent passage, meandering organically between the buildings of Van der Steur and Bodon. A public passage from city to park and from park to city. Boijmans is transforming from introvert to extrovert, from closed to open, from a castle to a museum, where inside and outside intertwine. It therefore feels natural and organic. It is precisely in contrast that it enters into a harmonious composition with the wings of Van der Steur and Bodon."

Alley Cat
SHED Architecture

"A DADU (detached accessory dwelling unit) in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood built for off-the-grid living. The solar powered DADU features an open floor plan, music loft and double-height spa room filled with natural light from the south-facing skylights."

Jim Stephenson

Bumpers Oast
Kent, England

"The traditional oast house form has been reimagined by ACME to create a new home within the rolling landscape and apple orchards of Kent. Bumpers Oast represents a 21st century riff on a local vernacular derived from the houses used to dry hops as part of the beer-brewing process. Four shingle-clad towers rise up from the natural surroundings, creating an extremely low-energy home with a bold contemporary aesthetic."

Retail Spaces
Retail Spaces

Popbox Container Park
St. John, New Brunswick, Canada
inPLACE Design

"PopBox is an outdoor shipping container retail and entertainment project in Saint John, Canada. Located in an existing shopping center, East Point Shopping was looking for ways to enhance their customers shopping environment. Constructed entirely out of overhauled shipping containers, PopBox Park is an open-air pop-up mall/ market place filled with boutique retail shops, unique restaurants, and live entertainment. Bringing people together over food and drinks with shared dining space, local venders and a unique gathering space producing a true experience of place."

Vruksh Vrund
Surat, India
Aangan Architects

This design for a multi-generational household is "a collage of individual aspirations and design ideologies of two young millennial couples along with their parents with specific zones for each family unit and member. Each private space has been tailored to suit their briefs. … The large family enjoys their individual privacy, at the same time congregating at various cavities interspersed through various levels of the house. In line with this thought the concept and planning was to create indoor and outdoor spaces that facilitate family interactions and celebrate the spirit of the joint family of today’s time."

House in Minoh Shinmachi
Minoh, Japan
Yasuyuki Kitamura

"This housing is located at the northernmost part of Minoh City, Osaka, for young couples. It consists of a large gable roof that takes in greenery and a Inserted room, with deep eaves and outside curtains obscuring the boundaries of the building. We aim to build a rich relationship between people and the natural environment at the boundary between cities and nature."

Kyiv, Ukraine
Loft Buro

"Hayloft space was found as a derelict commercial uninhabitable building, with a potential for creating a truly exciting loft. After the two-year roof, facade and interior refurbishment, an arrangement of utility lines, terracing and gardening, the building took on a contemporary accommodation, with state-of-the-art heating technologies and energy-efficient solutions. Interior design was coordinated alongside with cavity design, the search of antiques and art objects."

Gallatin High School
Bozeman, Mont.
Cushing Terrell

"When developing concepts for the new 1,500-student Gallatin High School in Bozeman, Montana, the design team and the building committee gravitated toward a layout inspired by a town center. The Town Center concept represents a place where people come together for a variety of purposes—a focal point for meetings, commerce, social interaction, and other public events — all aligned with building a unified, interactive community."

JWest Productions, LLC

Purdue University France A. Cordova Recreational Sports Center
West Lafayette, Ind.
Moody Nolan

Winner of a 2015 AIA Indiana Merit Award, this project replaced three "antiquated and windowless boxes housing fitness, gymnasiums and aquatic spaces" with a new facility that "is expressed on the exterior as light-filled volumes of glass and stone, which give the center a new, more inviting face, strongly contrasting and complementing the brick vernacular of the existing facility and campus. It is through these new elements that the sports center now establishes strong visual connections to the surrounding campus, where previously there were none." It is one of the dozens of award-winning projects from Moody Nolan. To learn more about the Columbus, Ohio–based practice, listen to co-founder and chairman Curtis Moody, FAIA, and CEO Jonathan Moody, AIA, on ARCHITECT's most recent podcast episode: Curtis and Jonathan Moody on Being Leaders, African Americans, and Family Members in Architecture.
