Piknic Électronik in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Fourteen years ago, four amazing electronic music visionaries created an event that revolutionized the Montréal cultural scene:Piknic Électronik. Just a few minutes from downtown on the picturesque Île Sainte Hélène, the Sunday afternoon celebration has become so huge that it draws top DJs from around the world. In 2007, the success of Igloofest, a winter version of the same concept, exploded the phenomenon. Today, the formula has been replicated on an international scale, from Barcelona to Melbourne, through Dubai and across to Santiago. To give their ever-expanding team a vibrant yet practical place to work, the producers contacted the architects at L. McComber. The new HQ will be fun, laid back, open and productive…just like the young company!

Features and installations for 2016 edition in London, United Kingdom by 100% Design

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: v2com

100% Design, the UK’s largest design trade show, announces its line-up of specially commissioned installations and features, reflecting both conceptually and physically this year’s theme of ‘experience’. Each installation will play on the senses to map a multi-sensory journey through the show, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in contemporary product design and be inspired by the possibilities enabled by great design.

The Central Bar at 100% Design has long been a hub for networking, a symbolic destination at the heart of both the show itself and the wider design industry. This year the 100% Design team has brought together a stream of uprights with colour scales adding drama to the central space, defining the area and providing a moment of shelter. The dramatic overhead installation is intended to provide a focal point for the entire show, surrounded by specially devised fins that define the entire space.

SHELTER in Switzerland by Bureau A

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: Bureau A 

Architecture seeks the underground, searches for new territories under the skin of the earth. Bachelard woke up the right to the unconscious spatial exploration of the underground through the figure of the cellar. Virilio unveiled the potential of semi-buried architectures in his Bunker Archeology. Colomine brought up to light the hidden architectures and psychotic strategies of the American society during the Second World War in her book Domesticity at War.

14.05-VCE- 3PATIO HOUSE in Girona, Spain by Lagula Arquitectes

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Article source: Lagula Arquitectes

Classical palatial buildings and old industrial spaces, such as the medieval dockyards, both share (at least) three conditions. First of all, the space is continuous and flows from room to room. Secondly, the structural vanes are equivalent, regular and adaptable. And finally, the volume of the series of spaces is not only related to the room size, but also to the holistic interpretation of the building. Of course, other obvious features differentiate these two typologies.

GD Goenka in New Delhi, India by Design Forum International

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Article source: Epistle Communications

Educational Institutions across the globe are designed to facilitate the engagement of the young minds by creating interactive environments that are a blend of study, activity and play areas. In alignment with the same ethos, the GD Goenka group’s philosophy is to reinvent the school experience by creating the best physical infrastructure as per global standards, coupled with high quality, well-paidand motivated faculty. A simple and concise design brief was determined- to have class rooms that are equipped with the neoteric style of teaching and content. Unlike the use of traditional systems such as blackboards etc., novel educations tools take precedent in the contemporary education system; multimedia tools such as projectors, and adequate storage space for children to stack their bags, books, classrooms that are highly flexible to support a variety of formal and informal teaching methods etc. The design of the institutional development of a primary school (from kindergarten to class 5) enables these requirements while aiming to provide flexibility of spaces by making the building form itself as a part of the learning experience.
