Article source: Michael Jantzen Studio

The Solar Rain Funneling Pavilion is a proposal for a large public art gathering place installation that would make electricity from the sun, collect rainwater, and clean the air for the community in which it is built. The entire structure would be made of photocatalytic concrete, which can neutralize pollution in the air turning harmful smog into harmless compounds that can be washed away. The upper portion of the pavilion is formed into a gigantic funnel that collects rainwater, and directs it into a large cone shaped storage reservoir at the base.

ENIGMA in Colombo, Sri Lanka by Narein Perera

 
June 12th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Narein Perera

The form of the house is primarily generated in creating the concept of an “Enigma” in the mind of the person entering. Guided by intermediate open spaces, the entrance court, the pool, subsequently arriving at the main volume of the living room where the climax of the ‘hidden’ garden is fully experienced. The entrance court envisioned as a part of the street on which the 20perch site forms the end block, defined by the continued building lines of the adjoining plots, the random rubble vertical envelope and pergola horizontal plane,  serve to contain, pause, experience the powerful shadows the sun paints, overwhelm, announcing arrival.

Feather – sense of lightness, gentleness, grace. It characterizes with slightly bend silhouette, symmetry and its structure that thins-away at the periphery, finishing in a virtually invisible line on a semi-transparent border. It separates the inside from the outside (subjective from objective), zero-gravity form gravity (independence versus shared responsibility). Something beautiful, that serves a purpose.

The workhouse is part of a complex situated alongside the canal which has a very original and distinct character thanks to its special typology and materialisation. Unlike traditional industrial ‘boxes’, the workhouse’s programmatic mix is rather peculiar: it includes a garage, workshops, offices and a caretaker’s residence.

Binario 11 is home to the main train Station with 10 tracks in Milan.

The venue is placed in an old mansion  and it is divided into two different areas: the bakery and the dining room.

The first one features a space adorned with hanging Renaissance reproductions from Agnolo Bronzino where the floor has the best italian Intarsia method. A black back wall with poems from Giovanni Pascoli explaining the process of making bread, combines with the original structural bricks and industrial lighting to create a whole new way of displaying food, celebrating the goodness of Italian bakery. Everything to remember the passion for the beautiful and good things that make every day a special day.
