Vivre le Chantier Sainte-Cath in Montréal, Canada by KANVA

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

IMAGO is the winning entry of the City of Montreal’s two-phase competition entitled ‘Vivre le chantier Sainte-Cath!’. St. Catherine Street, an important commercial artery in downtown Montreal is undergoing a four-year infrastructure improvement plan along several blocks, including underground infrastructure upgrades, incorporation of new public transit systems and increasing pedestrian sidewalk area and access. The project seeks to ameliorate the streetscape’s overall appeal, improve its functioning and promote economic growth over the long term. During the construction different segments of the street will be closed to car traffic, however pedestrian traffic and access to all stores will remain functioning. It is inevitable that this period of transformation will have an impact on people’s daily routine and the operation of the city.

LIVEBOAT – Chapter 5 in Berlin, Germany by Plastique Fantastique

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Article source: Plastique Fantastique

Taking his trident in both hands, Poseidon stirs the sea into a fury and lashes up rain and squall.
Mast and sail are torn away, Odysseus is thrown overboard and buried under a wall of water.
When he emerges gasping and sputtering, he somehow manages to clamber back aboard.
A goddess, Leucothea, appears to him in the form of a bird.
She counsels him to swim for it.
“Take my veil, tie it around your waist as a charm against drowning.
When you reach shore, be sure to throw it back into the sea.”

INTRODUCING METAMORPHOSIS & ENERGY SOLIDARITY

Metamorphosis doesn’t mean eradicating the past, but rather integrating the best of the past into our future.

Article source: Sunshine PR

This is a factory renovation project. Rebuilt into an office in its latest renovation, the old factory experienced several times of renovation after its construction in 1970s. Unlike other factories with large space, the factory doesn’t have a big space span while the height is normal showing no special features. However, a 100 square meters backyard is quite impressive. Based on the owner’s requirement, designers need to reconstruct it into a Zen Chamber.
