Corpus Intra Muros in Bruneck, Bolzano, Italy by Stefan Hitthaler Architekturbüro

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Article source: Stefan Hitthaler

Spaces and objects contain within them the presence of human beings. Human bodies imprint themselves on the very walls between which they live and along which they walk. Landscape can thus be read as a topography of invisible layers left behind by humans.

The autonomous character of the project gives the installation a feeling of a living organism responding to its surrounding.

Bienenhaus #3 in Canale d’Agordo, Italy by archMaDe | Massimiliano Dell’Olivo architetto

I have always seen in the community life of bees an urban instruction; something that is very close to the motto \”unity is strength\”.
A Bienenhaus is also this: a macro-structure can accommodate more living cells.
The teaching must have come from the comb itself in those early beekeepers who decided to protect their hives in these small buildings.

Walk-on balcony in Gliwice, Poland by ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015


There are ideas that arise from the need of a particular moment. Such a need – another hot day of summer spent in the office and a thought “if only I could go for a walk” – became inspiration for a project of a path suspended in the air, a balcony Walk-on. It is also one of the ideas to change a sad courtyard, that we overlook every day out of the office windows on the 3rd floor, to give the courtyard a bit of magic. A normal path is tortuous, winds, does not lead directly to the goal, surprises, relaxes, gives contact with nature. Therefore our path should also flow freely in space – giving you a moment of relaxation, rest, allowing you to change the perspective. This influenced its shape – it winds freely and intertwines with itself – it allows for a relaxing walk “from office to office.” Longing for a bit of greenery made us treat the path as a large pot. We filled it with grass that can grow as it wants – after all it’s just a path.

The design for a solar powered, perpetual motion, hydrofoil Trimaran yacht, commisioned by HoldenManz wine estate, Cape Town.

The Fresnel Trimaran has a folding wingsail for a better lift to drag ratio, the sail’s frame is a built up mechanical structure similar to an airplane wing constructed from carbon fibre with a retractable Kevlar sail covered in aero-nautical film. The sail rotates around the mast and has a series of motorised creases which catch the wind, the wingsail is actuated by motors that control these movements using solar cells and wind energy.

White Shining Objects 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Simon Hjermind Jensen / SHJWORKS

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source:  Simon Hjermind Jensen

“We do not know” was the common answer to the passersby, given by Shjworks while they were installing the project and were asked what it was. And it was true; Shjworks could not exactly tell what it was. They knew the project consisted of five white shining objects placed along a stretch of 400 m in the suburb of Husum just outside Copenhagen. They knew the objects would be illuminated from dusk till dawn, and they knew the height of the objects would vary from 4,2 m to 0,6 m. They also knew the project was the winning entry for a competition about urban spaces, arranged by the Copenhagen municipality. Together with the objects they included 7 benches, 3 planters and 95 step stones.
