Norman Foster to design Prado extension in historic palace

That way, as the pages that are referenced are changed or taken from the web, a link to the version that was live when the page was written will be preserved.

Then the Internet Archive hopes that references to these archived pages will be put in place of a link that would be otherwise be broken, or a companion link to allow people to see what was originally intended by a page's authors.

The goal is to fix all broken links on the web. Crawls of supported "No More 404" sites. Collection: Wikipedia Near Real Time (from IRC) This is a collection of web page captures from links added to, or changed on, Wikipedia pages. The idea is to bring a reliability to Wikipedia outlinks so that if the pages referenced by Wikipedia articles are changed, or go away, a reader can permanently find what was originally referred to.

This is part of the Internet Archive's attempt to rid the web of broken links. TIMESTAMPS

Norman Foster to design Prado extension in historic palace

British architect's proposal beat those by Chipperfield and Koolhaas

The winning design, conceived jointly with the Spanish architect Carlos Rubio, beat submissions from museums favourites David Chipperfield and Rem Koolhaas on a shortlist announced in June.

First proposed by the Spanish government in 1995, the project to restore the only surviving part of Philip IV’s Buen Retiro pleasure palace, which housed Spain’s Army Museum until 2005, has been hampered by years of austerity. The building was officially assigned to the nearby Prado last October. The plan was to open the 5,000 sq. m space in time for the museum’s 200th anniversary in 2019. This timescale now looks unrealistic, as construction will probably start in 2018, the Spanish newspaper ABC reports. The budget is estimated at €32m.

Foster and Rubio’s proposal is called Hidden Design and features a large “semi-open and permeable” entrance atrium on the south façade that will “protect the original façade”, whose windows and balconies will be reinstated, according to a press statement. A new roof topped with solar panels will give natural light to a large exhibition space above the atrium, overlooking the main museum complex.

The Hall of Realms will present works from the Prado’s collection and temporary exhibitions focusing on key themes from Spanish history. The long-debated idea that Picasso’s Guernica (1937) could be moved there from the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia has been firmly quashed by the Prado’s board.
