Baku Crystal Hall stadium in Azerbaijan by GMP Architekten

Baku Crystal Hall stadium in Azerbaijan by GMP Architekten | What Surrounds You | Scoop.it
The Baku Crystal Hall stadium in Azerbaijan was completed in just eight months by GMP Architekten in time to host the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest.

The faceted modular structure, located on a peninsula outside the centre of Baku, was designed and completed in just eight months. Conceived as both a concert hall and a sports stadium, the 25,000-seat stadium comprises a lightweight steel structure with a faceted membrane facade intended to resemble cut crystal. Its facade is covered with 9500 LED lights, which bring the structure to life after dark.

Shanghai Organic Food Farm by Playze

Shanghai Organic Food Farm by Playze | What Surrounds You | Scoop.it

Sustainability and LEED Certified buildings are becoming an increasingly popular subject of planning and design, so it’s only natural that an organic food farm in China would be concerned with such issues.

Tony’s Farm is one of those concerned with being more green; which led to their collaboration with Playze for a new structure. A total of 78 shipping containers- all stacked, cantilevered and positioned every direction to house the corporate headquarters, meeting areas, lobby and warehouse.

A courtyard style structure allows for a nice outdoor space, great for impromptu meetings, lunch or anything in between. The interior is clean and simple, with the exterior providing as an impermeable barrier of the elements to the working environment...

Connected to the Outdoors: A Modern House with a Modular Folding Wall

Connected to the Outdoors: A Modern House with a Modular Folding Wall | What Surrounds You | Scoop.it

This unique residence by Pitsou Kedem Architects gives inhabitants the ability to control light entering the space with a modular facade design that also provides for changing views and varying degrees of privacy.


With great attention paid to the relations between outdoors and indoors, this structure has been designed to convert the interior space into the outdoors with great modularity while retaining its simple and clean detailing. The most fascinating views of this residence take place when the pivot shutters open, allowing one to look straight through the interiors to the rear pool side beyond without any restrictions. Standing in the front garden, one is able to look out to the rear landscape connecting the two outside spaces.

The ability to reverse the balanced composition into a dynamic one is made possible thanks to the design of a system of smart blinds that allows them to be lifted upwards and folded into what resembles a roof. As all the rails and fixtures are hidden when the façade is closed, the changing possibilities also hide in the residence's façade. ..
