THE LEGEND OF TENT by 10AM Architecture

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source: 10AM Architecture

The new hotel style
Primitive humans were using caves, dark and not comfortable places, but there they could find shelter from the cold and from the wild animals. In the civilization ages they invented the tent, real light and easy transportable shelter, so they could move whenever they want. The tent was also not so comfortable, so over the years, humans started to have sedentary lifestyle. They built their stone and brick houses, which were very comfortable, but they lost their ability to move and to be free. Human population increased and had less and less space for their houses; that’s why they invented at first blocks and then skyscrapers, they were trying to gain space in height, until their homes reach the sky.

This is the current!
… and tomorrow?

This entrance is characterized, in particular, by the office building ‘Het Licht’ (the light), erected in 1930, drawn by architects Fernand and Maxime Brunfaut.

Trojan Egg in Swiss, Switzerland by Camilo Rebelo

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source:  Camilo Rebelo 

OVO[i] project was a challenge of a deeply restless client, which proposed the construction of a space to install one sculpture from Rui Chafes – Semente[ii]. This room is in the basement of his home in Fideris, located in the Swiss Alps.

This ‘Trojan Egg’ is the first stage of the project OVO. The purpose of this wooden Egg is to create a void, to unveil a new dimension and through it potentiate mystery. Mystery is a condition that is very close to disappear from our civilization. This value is for us one of the main reasons of life, and therefore the Egg is the dimension we choose to express it.

POLYPHEMUS’ EYE – 3,2,1 Festival in Alhóndiga Bilbao, Spain by Plastique Fantastique

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Article source: Plastique Fantastique

El OJO DE POLIFEMO (Polyphemus’ Eye) transforms the Alhóndiga’s main Hall into the Cylops’s cave, and visitors into lost travellers. The Eye looks directly at the entrance, and its presence leaves no passer-by indifferent. The only way to stay alive is to offer wine to the Giant, amplifying astuteness and mixing stories so as not to be devoured by his deeds. It is an installation, one architecture within another, a memorable scene which invites you to look, to penetrate the Eye and to discover its interior and its surroundings. A perceptive journey which swings from the Homeric epic to surrealist experience and the verses of Cortázar within the context of the 3, 2, 1 Gathering and Alhóndiga Bilbao.

KHMERESQUE in Batambang, Cambodia by Archium + Kim in-cheurl

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Article source: Archium + Kim in-cheurl

Building a temple of Won Buddhism that is based on Mahayana Buddhism on Cambodia ,the Hinayana Buddhist country, makes me consider the relationship between religion and architecture as a whole. In addition to this, the meeting between symbol of the religious buildings and local traditions was something to be considered. The changes of architecture style have been with the process of combining religious style with traditions from Hindu to Buddhism. Won Buddhism is relatively young, having a mere 100 years of history, and does not have a striking architectural symbol or style. Rather than focusing on this drawback, Won Buddhism has linked itself to Khmer culture. In previous works with Won Buddhism, it is clear that religious architectural style cannot simply be set and shaped just with a proclamation; on the contrary, developing for a religion to develop a real architectural style takes a considerable amount of time. Therefore, it must be started with respect to histories and philosophies.
