Warren Haasnoot is a young architect from Newcastle (AUS). I love his Carrington Wharf Project, I imagine all these tables hanging in an art gallery’s wall attracting envies and curses by loads of so-called-artists. Go on Warren!
Super minimal new Nendo‘s installation <<Installation for the main event “future primitives” at Biennale INTERIEUR 2012, held in Kortrijk, Belgium. A number of artists, designers and architects were asked to design a single 60 square meters space under the theme ‘a room that represents the interior space of the future’. We jettisoned the idea of a single space in favor of six small structures, each with multiple floor layers, adding up to a total floor space of 60 square meters. Each of the structures displays a single fishline chair. Rather than constructing a single space through multiple pieces of furniture, our structures create a specialized space for each single piece. Extending the idea outwards, our pavilion becomes like a village for chairs>>
Angie is the queen of all the interrupted children. Her characters float between dream and destruction, always with a delicate aftertaste of lost innocence, or better: they seem caught in the very same moment of losing innocence, of reaching despair after happiness, of sharing sadness. With a romantic rock’n’roll touch. Her new solo show will be in NY at Sacred Gallery, opening July 7th, 2012, she sent me some studio pics, a couple more after the cut, I hope you will enjoy them!
I’m a bit late on this, but E-Volo Magazine Skyscraper annual competition always deserves a look. 2012 winner project is Himalaya Water Tower, designed to store water and regulate its dispersal to the land below as the mountains’ natural supplies dry up. It is not a positive way to look at the future by chinese winners architects Zhi Zheng, Hongchuan Zhao, Dongbai Song so let’s all take care of our glaciers. More detailed images after the CUT.
This is from Alessandro‘s latest project, Metachaos. Keywords are tragedies like war, madness, hate.. Metachaos is multimedia project made of digital photography, paintings and one video, everything with Bavari‘s usual style, isolation and loneliness of the human being turned into art. More after the cut!
Oscar was born in Zaragozza (Spain) in 1972. He reveals a different world with mixed media creations, from illustration to assemblage dioramas; while I was lookin at his images all the sci fi books of the 50s and 60s I read popped up in my mind. They were wild and extremely generous in exploring new worlds; they had so many ideas deep inside their pages.. just like in Oscar‘s art: a mix of metaphysical, steam punk and poor art. Amazing! More after the cut!
Michael‘s M-Velopes are somewhere between architecture, art and a shelter. They are transformable structures, you can choose how to open them, how much light and wind can get inside. You just have to stay there and relax. Michael research for new kind of living is full of energy and it will go even farther.
Ontwerpduo latest project is Cottage Town, a mini village to animate your potplants. Delicate colors and waterproof paper tiny houses will turn your green corners into a forest. Or it could be a good way to give your puppy insects a house.
Modern society’s madness mirrored in Victor‘s art. Modern citizens too often feel lost in relationships. These crazy buildings are just like us, struggling for a new kind of harmony and for finding their place in the metropolis’ kingdom.
Delancey Underground project aims to turn an abandoned are below the Lower East Side in NY into the first underground high tech park, channeling the sunlight feet under the ground enabling trees and plants to grow.
This is a house that moves and that can hide in case of tornado and flood. Contemporary architecture reminds me some old sci fi illustrated books i used to watch when I was young. This is by 10 Design.
Gianfranco goes deep into the mysteries of urban environment, sinks in the outer space of our metropolis, links human and pop with electric and digital power lines. This installation will be at Milan’s Angel Art Gallery from May 12th.
The Ruin Academy is run in co-operation between the Casagrande Laboratory / Finland and JUT Foundation for Arts & Architecture / Taiwan. An industrial building, an empty space conquered again by nature; this is the third generation city, a mix between enviromental art, architecure, sociology and apocalypse.
