Neo – Fa by Pascal Arquitectos

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

Neo, a word derivated from the old Greek meaning new. This prefix commonly used in Spanish take us immediately to avant-garde movements; those names that are preceded by this word always look forward, to renew, to bring ways never seen before or break out with previous forms of art. That is exactly what we pretended to do with this proposal. This work consists of not only presenting just an architectural project or concept, we go beyond by generating a new architectural system which allows typification, standardization, prefabrication, multifunctionality and polyvalency.

329 prepared dc-motors, cotton balls, toluene tank, 2013 in Dottikon, Switzerland by Zimoun

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: Studio Zimoun

Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.
