Visible Structures

May 9th, 2011

Visible Structures is a series of 12 pieces of furniture designed by Nendo. They are made from foam core that is reinforced with industrial strength carbon tape. Those strips of tape are the visible structure but also a graphical element. I’m really tempted to try this out myself.

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.

Thru Religion

April 5th, 2011

Thru Religion is a 3D printed object created by Drzach & Suchy. The object has multiple shadow-casting elements, semi-randomly arranged in three dimensions. When you rotate the object to the right position in front of a light source, you can see 3 different religious symbols. You should also check out these 2 videos of their Shadow Casting Panels.

Comfort #4

March 24th, 2011

Comfort #4 was a light installation by Lang & Baumann for the “Nuit Blanche” 2010 event in Paris. 9 inflated white tubes connected all windows of two floors of the Ecole Elementaire de Belleville in Paris, with each other. Each tube threaded several windows in a random order. The result was a huge chaotic knot in front of the facade. In the night the lights from the inside were shining through the translucent foil.

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.
