HEADQUARTERS ALTERNATE

August 3rd, 2011

A few months ago, Nicolas Sassoon made an architectural proposal for the online art collective Computers Club. I already liked it back then, but he produced and released an altered version, in just black and white, for ”STREET SHOW: The Things Between US”. Watch it in HD!

Panteón Nube

June 28th, 2011

Panteón Nube is tomb designed by Clavel Arquitectos. This is the second tomb that I post on today and tomorrow and it’s quite different than this family chapel. The facade can only be opened in a certain way, you have to know the right order to open the doors. Thanks to the translucent onyx on the backside, there’s enough daylight inside the tomb. It’s definitely not the saddest place I’ve seen on a cemetery.

Studio on Number 17

June 19th, 2011

This office building has the most beautiful basement I’ve ever seen. The raw concrete walls combined with the ceiling lights … awesome. Calling it an office building might be an exaggeration actually, it is quite small, it’s footprint measures only 10 by 3,6 meters. Elisa Valero Ramos designed this very nice space in Granada, Spain.

Lucky Drops

June 17th, 2011

I don’t know what to say about the house called “Lucky Drops”. It was designed by Atelier Tekuto and its name is the equivalent to Japanese old saying ‘the best for last’. You can find more photos and information at ArchDaily.

House M

June 12th, 2011

I guess everyone knows by now that I’m a huge fan of Japanese architecture. So here’s the next one: House M by Jun Igarashi Architects. It does look more to a livable sculpture to me than a real house. Can someone explain to me why it doesn’t have any windows and just ceiling lights? The neighborhood isn’t really nice in this case, but doesn’t they want to look outside?

Scaffoldings

June 9th, 2011

Scaffoldings is a photographic series by Liddy Scheffknecht. Who knew that they could look so interesting after removing the buildings.

Spomeniks

May 4th, 2011

Spomenik is the Slovenian, Serbian, Croatian, Serbo-Croatian word for Monument. In the 1960s and 70s, the former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito commissioned these structures to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš). From 2006 to 2009, Jan Kempenaers toured around the ex-Yugoslavia region to photograph these amazing structures. Here’re my favorite ones.

Pelo House

April 27th, 2011

The Pelo House is the latest project by mA-style, a Japanese design and architecture firm. “Pelo” is a mimetic word for peeling something and I guess you can totally tell in all the details of this house.

Quadratura

March 15th, 2011

Of all the video projection on architecture projects out there, I still like Pablo Valbuena his best. One of his latest projects is called Quadratura, a site-specific installation presented at Matadero Madrid, Spain. Quadratura was the technique used in the baroque to extended architecture through trompe l’oeil and perspective constructions generated with paint or sculpture.
