Artist Taryn Simon in collaboration with OMA/Shohei Shigematsu has created a major new work for Park Avenue Armory’s Wade Thompson Drill Hall, co-commissioned by the Armory and Artangel, London. A conceptual artist working primarily with image and text, Simon breaks form with her first-ever directed performance in a monumental sculptural setting, in which she considers the anatomy of grief and the intricate systems that we devise to contend with the irrationality of the universe.

The European Council and Council of the European Union in Brussels, Belgium by Philippe SAMYN and PARTNERS architects & engineers

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Philippe SAMYN and PARTNERS architects & engineers

As a consequence of 2004 European enlargement, the Justus Lipsius building becomes too small for the council of the European1 (hereafter named the Council). According to the treaty of Nice, adopted in 2001, all European Council2 sessions are held in Brussels, which also generates new real estate needs. In order to respond to those, the Belgian State offered the Council to cede block A from the complex “Residence Palace” to make it the future seat of both the European Council and the Council, once this building renovated and adapted to its future owners’ needs.

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Article source: Margot Krasojevic Arcitect

Floating levee piers to trap sediment and divert freshwater:

The idea behind this project attempts to combine an architecture with technology, where by-products of new materials create impossible forms because computer technology has become an inherent part of the design process, such is the application of typology in this project.

Antalya Green Hub in Turkey by Alper Derinboğaz, Salon

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Recently Antalya is under a rapid transformation like many other cities in Turkey. These quick transformations usually aim segregated mediocre urban projects rather than balancing the benefits of different actors. Although there are many possibilities for a city like Antalya with much diverse qualities such as forests, sea, history, tourism and culture most of the renovation projects are enclosed mediocre worlds that rather try to exist within their limited environment.
