The Yas Hotel, a 500-room, 85,000-square-meter complex, is one of the main architectural features of the ambitious 36-billion-dollar Yas Marina development and accompanying Formula 1 raceway circuit in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Asymptote envisioned an architectural landmark embodying various key influences and inspirations ranging from the aesthetics and forms associated with speed, movement and spectacle to the artistry and geometries forming the basis of ancient Islamic art and craft traditions.

The architectural project of this photography studio, specialized in food photos, emerged from an internal competition held at StudioMK27. The team was divided into 3 groups that worked on the development of different ideas for one day. From these first rough sketches a new project, which, in part, was a synthesis of all these sketches and, in part, an entirely new project, was elaborated.

Ecco by NAU

Since their introduction, automobiles have been a source of passion and meanings as individual as their drivers.  Today they are often associated with luxury, performance or safety, but the Ecco aims to remind us they can still be about freedom.  Following on the heels of design classics like the Airstream or VW camper van, this concept vehicle gets passengers to their destination, and becomes a temporary home when they get there.  Compact, stylish and aerodynamic while on the road, when it is parked, the Ecco expands to provide a level space and comfort than its fore bearers could only dream of.

Canopy house in Pajottenland, Belgium by MDMA

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Article source: MDMA

A house built in a landscape of rolling hills, south of Brussels. This landscape being open and rural has been well preserved over the centuries as a consequence of the medieval castle (of Gaasbeek) that overlooks it. In a wider range Pieter Brueghel the Elder, one of our most famous painters, helped to its preservation by eternalising it (see ‘the harvest’, Metropolitan Museum, NY, fig). One can actually take a tour and visit the sites behind the paintings.
