The M-velopes by Michael Jantzen

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

This M-Velope is one in a series of functional art retreat structures designed to be used as special places in which to escape from the norm. These structures vary in size and shape, and most are made of sustainably grown wood that is colored with environmentally friendly stains or paints. In every case, the design of the M-velope’s are generated from simpler forms that are subdivided, hinged together, and folded in or out of the original form in order to create unexpected transformations.

Spanish Pavilion for Expo 2008 in Zaragoza, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The desire to reproduce the space of a forest, or of a group of bamboos on a layer of water, has formed the subconscious basis of the project. On the one hand there is the creation of a… building mechanism? able to generate extraordinary possibilities from the point of view of energy logic and environmental awareness, an essential and symbolic aspect for the future Spanish Pavilion at the International Exposition of Zaragoza. But on the other hand, and this is very important, one of the most attractive spaces one may encounter, both in terms of matter and light, is transferred to the field of architecture. Changing spaces, full of hints and nuances, in which concepts such as verticality and depth play an essential role.

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Article source: penda.

The cola-bow is a public art installation made out of more than 17.000 recycled plastic bottles, which were braided to create a shape inspired by the swings of the Coca-Cola logo.

More than 17.000 bottles were collected by a joint initiative of universities around Beijing and Coca-Cola China to give citizens a bottle of Coke for every 10 empty ones brought back to a recycling spot. The amount of collected plastic bottles ended up in an entrance conopy to the 2nd universal university creation expo.

It is easy to build a new urban which is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and airy. However, it is not easy to create the spirit-inspiring place, especially in Vietnam where new urban are currently blooming, rather like each other and duplicate a lot of French classical architecture.
