6 Couples Who Are Shaping Contemporary Design | What's new in Design + Architecture? | Scoop.it

The narrative continues through the mid-1900s with the rise of famous duos like Charles and Ray Eames, Aline and Eero Saarinen, and Florence and Hans Knoll, who are remembered for their landmark contributions to architecture and design.Click here to edit the title

The project has been designed as part of a particularly innovative programme, environmentally speaking. The concept of the building relies on the development of a primary landscape which would draw its textures and components from the wider landscape in which it is set. In this way it becomes an urban enclave which stands apart: an elevated landscape in which an indigenous environment grows freely, a sort of urban canopy, sheltered, but also protected by people.
