Yucca Crater in Edmonton, Canada by Ball-Nogues Studio

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Each fall High Desert Test Sites (http://www.highdeserttestsites.com) invites artists to create experimental projects adjacent to California’s Joshua Tree National Park. This year HDTS invited Ball Nogues Studio (http://www.ball-nogues.com) to create a structure in a remote region of the Mojave Desert. This presents a unique opportunity to draw upon an unfettered landscape at a grand scale. Expanding on theories developed by earthwork artists, our project, entitled Yucca Crater (working title),will re-imagine these concepts through new methods of production linked to our cross-disciplinary artistic, architectural, design and fabrication practice.

Usually they are built of ready metal or concrete containers without paying too much attention to the relation  with the environment.

“we made this” by ctrl+n arkitektur

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: ctrl+n arkitektur

In order to engage the youth of today with art and cultural exhibits we first have to take ourselves back to those times and understand what it was that captured our imaginations or what in fact disengaged us with our cultural surroundings and opportunities. in order to attract teenagers to art, they themselves must feel part of the creative process. We are all guilty of, at times, only half acknowledging our surroundings. self involvement with our immediate context allows our minds to absorb and expand.

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Article source: Joseph A. Sarafian

By the turn of the Twenty-Second century, a new epoch in global survival had emerged. The human race was no longer concerned with sustainability as a trend, because it could no longer deny the fact that the world was in fact dying. The environmental catastrophes that surfaced in the Twenty-First century became increasingly frequent. Barraged with hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis, mankind was at the brink of extinction.

Tamina Thermal Baths in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland by Smolenicky & Partner Architektur

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Article source: Smolenicky & Partner Architektur

The project for the Tamina thermal baths is the result of a two-stage competition from 2003. The aim of the first phase of the process was to coordinate the large pending architectural interventions in terms of town planning. Where should the new five-star hotel be located, where should the extension of the medical centre be set, and how should the new public thermal baths be accessed from the site? The plan was to invest and coordinate a total of SFr. 160 million in new constructions and structural alterations.

Bike sauna by H3T Architekti

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Article source: H3T Architekti

How did Bike sauna come to existence?

The idea of creating a Bike sauna for city bikers came out spontaneously last year at a Christmas party of bike servicing outfit Bajkazyl at Rašínovo nábřeží. For that occasion we brought our older concept – sauna on wheels that can be dragged behind a car. That evening our sauna went through serious testing by more than 40 people. Everyone liked the concept very much, it was perhaps its greatest success yet. But we couldn’t ignore many calls for sauna that could be dragged behind a bicycle.
