Techno Group Headquarters in Amman, Jordan by Symbiosis Designs

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Symbiosis Designs LTD wins design competition to build Techno Group Headquarters in Amman

The building massing concept created a negative space that would be a certain interruption to the continuous street frontal façades; hence a specific and differentiated visual field is announced where the void becomes a captive. The negative field is the primary focal point staging majestic trees. Through the building’s homogenous material expression, the steel structural skin is also a grounding continuum and an assurance of rigor, visual noise reduction and simplicity.

Blue Room for Ohne Titel by Barker Freeman Design Office designed using Rhino and V-Ray

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

BLUE ROOM is an installation proposal that translates and complement the brand’s juxtaposition of soft silhouette and architectural lines in their work into the scale of the retail environment.  We began with an idea about the insertion of a translucent lining that would contrast with the rectilinear envelope of the existing space and act as an atmospheric veil to separate and define areas for the display of merchandise.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2006 in London, UK by Rem Koolhaas and Cecil Balmond, with Arup

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Article source: Rem Koolhaas and Cecil Balmond, with Arup

The Serpentine Pavilion 2006 was co-designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas and innovative structural designer Cecil Balmond.

The centrepiece of the design was a spectacular ovoid-shaped inflatable canopy that floated above the Gallery’s lawn. Made from translucent material, the canopy was raised into the air or lowered to cover the amphitheatre below according to the weather. A frieze designed by Thomas Demand marked the first collaboration between an artist and the designers of the Pavilion.

Toyo Ito’s magical summer pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery is a lesson in imagination.’ Evening Standard The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2002 appeared to be an extremely complex random pattern that proved, upon careful examination, to derive from an algorithm of a cube that expanded as it rotated.
