Embassy of Islamic Republic of Iran in London by Daneshgar Architects

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Article source: Daneshgar Architects

The design for the Iran Embassy, Vienna is another approach of a direct connection between architectural design and virtual game engines, that opened an entirely new initial point for modern Islamic architecture. The aim was to extract the uniqueness of traditional Islamic ornaments into a modern language of 3-dimensional shaping by simultaneously preserving traditional proportion patterns. To meet with this ambitious intention a special software was programmed that resulted into the adventurously new Islamic design. The traditional way of treating natural light meets an entirely new way of involving the direct processing of digital data flow into an architectural design.

Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous sailing vessels. After being decommissioned, the historic clipper ship has rested in a dry dock in the centre of historic maritime Greenwich where it served as public museum. Grimshaw Architects in association with Youmeheshe Architects and Designers were commissioned to design a cutting-edge visitor centre within and beneath the ship as part of a 27 million pound conservation programme that required closing the attraction for a complete restoration overhaul.

The Tree of Life: A Journey Through the Underworld in London, United Kingdom by Urban Brew

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Article source: Urban Brew

Visitors to the 2010 Bloomsbury Festival were invited to contribute to the evolving Tree of Life installation produced by Urban Brew. Produced to promote The Book of the Dead exhibition at the British Museum, Urban Brew interpreted the Egyptian Tree of Life into a site specific installation that attracted over 4,000 people. The installation reflected the importance the Ancient Egyptians attached to the ideas of life and death and invited the public to contribute by writing their name onto a paper bird, which would then be hung up to create a sea of flying birds overhead. The underworld was further explored in a series of soundscapes throughout the installation, produced by composer Jonathan Rousseau.
