Sundsvall was at the end of the 1900th century, one of the wealthiest cities in Sweden. The wealth came from the forests in the north that provided the rest of the country with timber for paper- and construction needs. But in 1888 Sundsvall was struck by a fire that almost completely destroyed the old wooden town. The best architects in Sweden were assigned, and no expenses were spared to create the new city.

On an island in the Bay of Islands, four separate buildings discretely occupy an east-facing bay. The houses are light pavilions which promote the concept of ‘roof’ as the predominant element of shelter. The monopitch roofs float above and beyond the spaces, supported on exo-skeletal structures beautifully detailed in wood. Exterior walls are taut joinery frames, offering minimal interruption between inside and out. The boat shed is totally underground, to reduce visual built form in the bay, with the guesthouse above.

The Folding Landscape Pavilion is an interactive merging of architect and photography. It consists of ten prefabricated photo laminated panels that can be folded out from a simple prefabricated rectangular steel support frame into many different combinations. Each of the panels is hinged to the support frame; they are also divided in half diagonally, and hinged back together, so that the original rectangular space can be altered in completely unexpected ways.

Through the end of October, the Czech Republic, along with over 150 other counties of the world, is participating in the Expo 2015 in the northern Italian metropolis of Milan. Expo, far beyond being a venue to showcase progress and the latest discoveries in science and technology, also aims to contribute to solving current global problems and to strengthen international cooperation. The motto of the Milan Expo is: “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”, referring to the need for balanced securing of quality sources of food and potable water for everyone on the planet. The Czech Republic chose water as the central theme of its exposition, since in the European Water Charter of 1968 it is stated that “water is indispensable to all forms of life” and its preservation “is the joint responsibility of states and all users”.

The idea behind the project for the Polish Pavilion at EXPO 2015 in Milan refers to Polish orchards and horticulture, very significant to the Polish landscape and economy. It is being realized through the use of a motif of a wooden apple box, normally used in shipment as a packaging for fruits and vegetables.

The Infobox information pavilion at the parkMuzeon is a compact temporary structure consisting of a dark looming sculptural mass with large white lettering on its high facade.The unusually acute angle of the roof slope, along with the diminutive size of the building serve to emphasise its dominant wall – the main facade.The pavilion is austere, unexpected and robust.Yet it is also unassuming:metal framed, finished with various types of panelling. Laminated moisture-resistant veneers that are more usually used as shuttering in the fabrication of concrete block structures have been employed, and the interior is birch wood ply, painted grey.
