Benetton Group Headquarters in Tehran, Iran by AquiliAlberg

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

In Persia, language has a powerful symbolic narrative function, that not only explains the power of charm, but also the typical, the recurrence of certain symbols which are dotted legend, poetry, textiles, the thumbnails until you arrive to architecture. Symbolism in Persian, with its repertoire of typical and recurring images, the flight between analog and fantastic image and meaning, seems to almost always be the work not of an individual but of an entire group, in a symbol that expresses their cultural identity, a collective religious sensitivity, under the penalty of continued foreign domination. Dance illuminated daily narrated thousand stories and the understanding of symbolic language is collective, popular.

IMI in Kolkata, West Bengal, India by Abin Design Studio

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Nature in its various forms has always been a constant source of inspiration to man. The sky with its various states and ever changing colors is one of the most dynamic elements of nature and is what has inspired the built form façade. The colored laminate with Vanceva PVB glass on the façade follows no repetitive pattern and is symbolic of the unpredictable nature of the sky. It also represents the vibrancy of today’s youth.

L’ATMOSPHERE DES CAFES PARISIENS in Paris, France by Nicolas Dorval-Bory, Raphaël Bétillon Architects

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

Since the seventeenth century, time of the emergence of literary cafes, the cultural history of Paris has been linked to the alcoves and the counters of its taverns. Places of intense life and intellectual dynamism, the Parisian cafes vibrated with hushed or noisy ambiance, stimulating and often smoky atmospheres generated by their users and also perhaps by an intangible part, more inherent to the place.

Dancing Living House in Yokohama by Junichi Sampei/A.L.X.

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

The client for this project is a married couple with dancing as a hobby. They requested a house with a dance studio which also serves as a living room and dining room.

Using living room as the dance studio felt it very important to the couple. They also requested enough light and wind for a comfortable living space. They also required it to have a strong close for high soundproofing – which added up to a number of contradictory elements.
