Sui tetti d’Europa. The Cube, il ristorante-origami di Park Associati | Artribune | Architecture and Urban Planning | Scoop.it

Sembra fatto di carta di riso piegata, sagomata, traforata al laser. Con una pelle filigranata in alluminio total white, come elegante texture di copertura, elaborata dallo studio milanese FM. Signori, ecco The Cube: il nuovo esperimento creativo voluto dalla Electrolux e dall’agenzia belga Absolute Blue, un ristorante piccolo, spostabile ed eco-friendly, progettato da Park Associati dopo due anni dal precedente di Nomiya, elaborato dai fratelli Pascal e Laurent Grasso e pensato per essere ospitato sulla copertura del Palais de Tokyo, a Parigi.

Centro sociale NOIVOILORO Erba 2004-10

Centro sociale NOIVOILORO Erba 2004-10 | Architecture and Urban Planning | Scoop.it
Gio Ponti states that modern architecture cannot avoid taking into consideration solutions to socially-committed themes; certainly the Ifdesign project relating to the new NOIVOILORO cooperative site fully responds to this founding assumption, conducted from “the bottom up” as out-and-out voluntary work.

The first modern architecture – in reply to the rapid evolution of the new social needs – sought for the “typical” solution, by emphasising the general features of the building and often taking into account the location and the circumstances like mere “accidents”. Ida Origgi and Franco Tagliabue work in the opposite direction: beginning with the particular requirements requested by the commissioning client and from the constraints of a specific location, they build an “open” project, that is capable of growing and developing over time starting from a large common space.

Just like some rural constructions built around a barnyard or a medieval monastery around a cloister, simple buildings aggregate around a large central courtyard, that represents a common area open to the different forms of sociality stimulated by the cooperative: parties, shows, sports or recreational activities.

Exploding Twin Towers Concept Triggers Outrage

Exploding Twin Towers Concept Triggers Outrage | Architecture and Urban Planning | Scoop.it

A Strange twin towers concept, for Seoul, South Korea, was recently revealed by Dutch designers MVRDV. The Cloud - consists of 2 high rise residential buildings, joined at the middle of its height span by a pixelated cluster. Oddly, the final renders of the towers gave an impression of resembling a frozen frame of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre twin towers in New York in 2001, which triggered a rough wave of outrage in the design fans community, that started with a publication introducing the building on Dezeen magazine.

Alexandra Lange: When Modernists Get Crafty: Observers Room: Design Observer

Alexandra Lange: When Modernists Get Crafty: Observers Room: Design Observer | Architecture and Urban Planning | Scoop.it

Just before Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to tour the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) exhibition, Crafting Modernism: Midcentury American Art and Design, with curators Jeannine Falino and Jennifer Scanlan. The moment I walked in, I was a little bit embarrassed I hadn't been before, as the opening vignette features a large, pristine piece of Irving Harper's "China Shop" fabric, designed while he was working for George Nelson. Given my obsession with midcentury and architectural textiles, what took me so long? The argument of the show is that modernism wasn't a one-way industrial street, and that, during the 1950s and 1960s, there was a great deal of back-and-forth between craft and design, the rough and the smooth, and there is a tremendous amount of eye candy, including Betty Cooke and Art Smith jewelry). DCrit graduate Chappell Ellison has written an excellent summary of the show over on the Etsy blog, so I won't do that. Collapsing the boundaries between craft and machine, and versing designers in multiple disciplines is part of the legacy of the Bauhaus. And indeed, Dorothy Liebes's experiments with Lurex and natural fibers and close cousins of Anni Albers's earlier experiments in wool and cellophane.
