Housing Complex in Niigata, Japan by TAKUYAHOSOKAI + Hirose Architects

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Article source: TAKUYAHOSOKAI

Noh, a traditional, Japanese performance art, serves as the main inspiration for the architectural concept. The performance of Noh is heavily reliant upon the use of delicately carved masks. Although at first these masks may appear to present a neutral expression they are formed in such a way as to convey a broad emotional spectrum.

In Switzerland there is a current trend for professional tranquility and particularly so in the world of architecture where architects prefer to satisfy their commissions in studied silence. Everything is in the doing and doing as perfectly as possible. All is in how to answer properly, more than in the question itself.

Article source: Mateo Arquitectura

In one corner of this great space, we lay out the main entrance to the tower block.

At the corner of the floor plan there is a triangle. The space is black but full of life, veined with colour.

One side of the triangle marks the border, the point of control. Another, annexed to it, offers an unusual view, slightly raised above the rest.

Article source: Bureau A

James Gandolfini died on the 19th of June 2013, a few weeks before the 47th Montreux Jazz Festival. He was the leading character of one of HBO’s best series: The Sopranos. He embodied the complete range of clichés of the Italian American mafia developed beforehand by great film directors such as Martin Scorsese or Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfellas in 1990 for the first, The Godfather in 1972 for the second).
