BUBBLE BUILDING in Shanghai, China by 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

When I moved to from Rome to Shanghai I noticed many environmental differences. One was the fact that when I looked out the window here, it didn’t give me the same good feeling like it usually did in Rome. It was probably a combination of the grey buildings, the immortal grey sky and the fact you couldn’t open the window due to the outside air pollution.

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.

THE TALES PAVILION STORY in Beijing, China by NICHETTO&PARTNERS S.A.S.

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Article source: NICHETTO&PARTNERS S.A.S.

If one had to describe the relationship between Venetian designer Luca Nichetto and the Tales enterprise in only one word, it would be “emotion.” What brought these two lovers of design together is nothing short of a cocktail of right timing, trust, a twist of luck, and the mutual notion that emotion is at the core of design.
