Sandworm in Wenduine, Belgium by Marco Casagrande

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Marco Casagrande

Sandworm is an organic structure/space/creature realized on the dunes of the Wenduine coastline, Belgium. The 45 meters long and 10 m wide and high installation moves freely in-between architecture and environmental art and is constructed entirely out of willow following the local knowledge of a continuing interaction between work and environment. Casagrande worked hard with his team of young architects and local experts for 4 weeks in order to create something that he describes as “weak architecture” – a human made structure that wishes to become part of nature through flexibility and organic presence.

The Concept event in the La Perla showroom, created by Silvio De Ponte, is based on the concept of Fractal, generating a unique and homogeneous mix, becoming a sort of great embroidery products and establishing a new spatiality. The Fractal is a system constituted by a component module that is multiplied to generate a new complex and articulated scenario, comprising a set of fragments on different scales. The Fragment is the essential element of a piece of work, and it is an important part of the space.

Feathered Edge in Los Angeles, California by Ball-Nogues Studio

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Feathered Edgewas commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The project explores the convergence of digital technology and craft. It is one in a series of installations curated by Brooke Hodge and Alma Ruiz. Integrating complex digital computation, mechanization, and printing with traditional handcrafted production techniques, Feathered Edge explores our desire to alter a space with fluid architectural forms that require a minimal use of material while utilizing a new proprietary technique that yields the effect of three dimensional spatial constructs “printed” to resemble objects hovering in space.

Pennrose combines the zest of a joyful event space with rigorous research into new material and digital fabrication.

Pennrose will immerse the viewer in kaleidoscopic pattern of color created by sunlight filtering through an array of translucent, tinted mylar petals that resemble blossoming flowers of stained glass. the piece functioned as a shade structure. the interior of this experimental installation created a beckoning outdoor room for social interaction and contemplation by changing the space, color and light. during the day as the sun passed overhead, the canopy cast colored fractal light patterns onto the ground while during the night, when standing underneath and gazing upward, the visitor could see the infinite sky.

Article source: Bild Architecture

California Dreamingis one of a continuing series of projects exploring adaptations of Australian suburban typologies to contemporary housing requirements. Located in an area of inner-urban Launceston originally developed with inter-war ‘California Bungalow’ type housing, the project adapts and co-ops this typology to contemporary living styles and expectations for a pair of duplex residential units.Unfashionable for many years this area of the city lay dormantafter its initial wave of development, preserving an enclave of inter-war speculative housing. However in recent years, with sudden gentrification, the area has seen a new wave of housing occupying the abundant infill opportunities. These new occupants, reflective of contemporary ways of living and ways of building sit in stark contrast with the area’s original houses.
