Dadong Art Center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan by de Architekten Cie.

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Article source: de Architekten Cie.

The Dadong Arts Center is located in Kaohsiung, the economic center of southern Taiwan. Before the opening of Chinato foreign markets,Taiwan was the leading economy of the region. Towns developed into a generic industrial city fabric without adequate public spaces. Currently, the strong brand of ‘Made in Taiwan’ is in the process of being restored to its former glory. The cities urgently need pleasant urban space to help regenerating inner-city districts. Therefore, the Dadong Arts Center is conceived in the first place as a new public domain, setting new high standards for the level of urban comfort.

Article source: Moritz Gruppe/LAVA

An old cabaret theatre from the roaring ’20s has been uncovered in the heart of Berlin.

The semi-derelict music hall theatre, built in 1905 on Gartenstraße in Berlin Mitte, has been buried in 30 tonnes of rubble since 1934 when it closed, perhaps as part of a  crackdown on the cabaret scene by the Nazi regime.

Article source: Gemelli Design

Often the kitchen design is mainly aimed to its ergonomics without taking into account her originality.
Our goal was to create a glamorous kitchen combining multiple perspectives as a masterpiece of art affected by the cubism and surrealism styles. This advanced kitchen is a piece of one more colored, spectacular and interesting world and, at the same time functional.

The Station Area of Malmi in Helsinki, Finland by Prokofyev-Archigroup

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Article source: Prokofyev-Archigroup

At the crossing of the transport routes in the cities, where there is constant presence of people and their movement, there is formed certain public space, which has its own especial atmosphere. Usually, stations in any country of the world, in any city, both bus and railway, arouse people’s typical formed stereotypes. And what if they are all identical? Same dowel, same rails and typical bulkheads over them. That is why each station should have its own unique appearance, its own atmosphere.
