Creative adaptations, a beautiful mess and plenty of great fun are the playful combination reflected in this building, designed by Studio PLP Co., Ltd.

SOI 16 is a pub and music venue in the famous night life street known as Walking Street in Pattaya, Thailand. Influenced by the essence of Thai architectural design, triple- gables are used as the main structure of the building, along with clay roof tiles lining the front gable. The check and stripy façade, borrowed from the pattern of the Pa Kao Ma (traditional Thai sarong), plays well with the mess of electricity wires in front of the site.

Nature Concert Hall 2016 in Zalenieki manor, Latvia by DJA (Didzis Jaunzems Architecture)

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: DJA (Didzis Jaunzems Architecture)

Nature Concert Hall 2016 is designed as an art installation made from 10 000 paper bats. Levitating cloud with gradient density over the musicians serves also as a screen for video and light projections. To achieve maximum lightness and levitation effect art installation is suspended in 3 paired electricity columns far away each from another. The volume of the cloud is referring to flocking bird and bat created dynamic geometries that can be found in nature. Black & white video and light projections, specially composed music are continuing the interpretation of dark world of the bat.
