When I moved to from Rome to Shanghai I noticed many environmental differences. One was the fact that when I looked out the window here, it didn’t give me the same good feeling like it usually did in Rome. It was probably a combination of the grey buildings, the immortal grey sky and the fact you couldn’t open the window due to the outside air pollution.

ART[house] by TACKarchitects

ART[house] at its core attempts to blur the boundaries between interior and exterior environments, while creating a sophisticated canvas in which the owner can display their extensive art collection.  The design finds inspiration from the work of Richard Neutra, and some of his more notable projects such as the Kaufmann House.

“Everything remembered, everything thought, all awareness becomes base, frame, pedestal, lock and key of his ownership. Period, region, craft, previous owners – all, for the true collector, merge in each one of his possessions into a magical encyclopaedia whose quintessence is the fate of his object.”

LCC1301 in Medellin, Colombia by Land+Civilization Compositions, Taller 301, openfabric

A conceptual framework for the development of the city of Medellin


Multiple intertwined streams of issues

Medellin is wealthy city; wealthy in terms of its ambitions and its potential. Further, this project is a rare opportunity the ability to reform the ENTIRE riverfront that runs through a major city is rare. Therefore, this opportunity must be thought of as being even bigger than just a public space design, it must be taken as a chance to reform and set the framework for Medellin’s future. Obviously the riverfront is the key element in this project, but its influence and importance is much larger than the given project site boundaries. This proposal uses this competition to set forth principals for redevelopment, the use of funds, the city and its history, the relation to ecology, the movement of people, and so forth. Clear thinking about the further evolution of the city and how this project can be a trigger in this process is not overlooked by this project.

HygroSkin-Meteorosensitive Pavilion in Orleans, France by Achim Menges Architect

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

Meteorosensitive Architecture

Climate-responsiveness in architecture is typically conceived as a technical function enabled by myriad mechanical and electronic sensing, actuating and regulating devices. In contrast to this superimposition of high-tech equipment on otherwise inert material, nature suggests a fundamentally different, no-tech strategy: In various biological systems the responsive capacity is quite literally ingrained in the material itself.

The Lantern Festival is the last of the series of spring festivals that celebrate the Chinese New Year (Feb. 9 ~24, 2013). During this time, people come together to offer good wishes and pray for more blessings in the coming year.

In this spirit, the main lantern for this year’s Taiwan Lantern Festival, is aptly themed the “Ring of Celestial Bliss”. Its concept, based on the Chinese saying of “Blessings as high as the sky”, is vividly conveyed in all aspects of the design.
