Shenzhen Stock Exchange HQ in China by OMA

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: OMA

The essence of the stock market is speculation: it is based on capital, not material. The Shenzhen Stock Exchange is conceived as a physical materialization of the virtual stock market: it is a building with a floating base, representing the stock market – more than physically accommodating it.

Renovation of Rahova Commodities Exchange in Bucharest, Romania by Re-Act Now Studio

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

What could we do in the context of revitalizing architecture to keep a more vivid picture of an old building with (even partial) special features? It is a question to which we can respond in two ways. The valuable part – the special one – will be restored and the unworthy one we rebuild, complete, emphasize – in a first variant – absolutely in the same stylistic story as theold valuable one, or we dress it – in a second variant – in a completely new concept in major contrast with the existing situation.

The Traders’ Commune in Brighton, UK by Alexander Cotterill designed using Cinema 4D and Photoshop

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Alexander Cotterill

The Traders’ Commune envisages a society of total self-sufficiency that aims to embrace and regenerate the surrounding area. In reaction to the current economic climate and deterioration of outer cities, the project acts as a critique of the development and decline of a failed planning model in Brighton’s suburbia.

Shenzhen Stock Exchange in China by OMA

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Article source: OMA

For millennia, the solid building stands on a solid base; it is an image that has survived modernity. Typically, the base anchors a structure and connects it emphatically to the ground. The essence of the stock market is speculation: it is based on capital, not gravity. In the case of Shenzhen’s almost virtual stock market, the role of symbolism exceeds that of the program – it is a building that has to represent the stock market, more than physically accommodate it.
