Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Article source: Dominique  coulon  & associés

The building is located in the upper part of the town. It backs onto the woods, forming the final outlying limit of the built-up area. Echoing the open landscape, it faces to Belfort Lion on the hilltop opposite. In this strong context, the building offers its solidity, an almost opaque mass of grey concrete.

Article source: Delution Architect

The Equalizer is a philosophical concept representing three different activities as the core activities held in the building i.e. Musical studies, movies and ballet. The three core activities are about rhythm therefor the architect took Equalizer as the philosophical concept. The building has three stories and the front view is different from the side views. The left side of the building has high covers until the third floor while the right side has shorter cover yet they still have the same total number of floors. The massing of the building is separated into two parts, one part is elongated upwards and the other on is elongated forward. The concept if the building is semi industrial thus some details are left unfinished. The building has a movie room on the first floor, recording music studio on the second floor and a ballet studio on the third floor. The building façade is covered with terracotta shaded bricks arranged in an equalizer-like shape as a representation of the three main activities in this building.

Mazzo, the eighth member of the IQ creative family in Amsterdam, is the Italian sister of Brasserie Witteveen – both in hospitality concept and in the interior there is an obvious connection.

The audience sat within this framework, apposed to the back-lit glass and resting against the inflatables.

Cybernetic Assemblages in Chicago, Illinois by Nikita Troufanov

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: Nikita Troufanov


The proposed Dance Center explores the idea of superimposition and cybernetic assemblages. By combining and overlaying organic, natural, smooth systems with machine-like, synthetic, rigid ones, a deeper experience of architectural space is achieved. Cyborg as an idea and image has informed much of the process where new nature, transformation and time are central themes. Through exploitation of cyborg vocabulary such as plug-ins, prosthetics, new skins and add-ons an architectural Cyborg is developed.
