Second Skin for The Lake and Stars by Barker Freeman Design Office designed using Rhino, V-Ray, and Grasshopper

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

SECOND SKIN is an installation proposal designed to complement the aesthetic and image of the clothing line of the Lake and Stars.  The initial concept was to develop a space that recalled the way in which the designers see lingerie as something that can be playfully exposed and integrated into everyday wear.  The architects developed surfaces of abstracted “skins” that alternately reveal and conceal spaces with varying levels of privacy.  Fittingly, teh inspiration for the structure comes from the pissoirs that line the banks of canals in Amsterdam.

Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters by Foster + Partners

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: Foster + Partners

Conceived during a sensitive period in the former colony’s history, the brief for the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters was a statement of confidence: to create ‘the best bank building in the world’. Through a process of questioning and challenging − including the involvement of a feng shui geomancer − the project addressed the nature of banking in Hong Kong and how it should be expressed in built form. In doing so it virtually reinvented the office tower.

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: Rojkind arquitectos

The Red Alebrije

Architecture as an experience. Sensory architecture, experienced through the architectural tour, through the surprises, the turns and the bends. Architecture as a challenge. The forms and spaces contained, as well as the times are pushed to the limit. Complexity and record time: three months to project and build. Dramatic and expansive architecture that reflects the frozen instant of trains crashing in the air.
