Text description provided by the architects. On the roof of an existing building in Berlin Neukölln, a small but lively and sensual world has been created in a simple style that belies its complexity – a dwelling that gives its occupants enhanced quality of life. Here the focus is on primary elements, allowing for an individual sense and experience not only of the space but also of the light, the shade, the wind, the air, the rain, the greenery, the sky, the sunrise and sunset.

White Comedy of Xi’an Zhongshu Bookstore by Wutopia Lab | Shop interiors

10 August, 2018 - 00:00

Wutopia Lab recently designed an entirely white Zhongshu Bookstore in Xi’an, one of the most ancient cities in China which used to be the capital for thirteen dynasties, with 300 tons of steel and 30,000 meters of light strips. We aborted our design of a direct entry into the bookstore, and created a glittering entrance in the commercial space on the fourth floor; this required to make free of the floor slab of fifth floor into the main area of the bookstore without destroying the main structure. We built a pillarless white curvy staircase, highlighted by a spiral white panel, surrounded by custom-made white acrylic walls. Readers coming from their everyday life, heading up the stairs step by step, and are encouraged by the spirit of knowledge and curiosity displayed through the books around them to enter the bookstore over the clouds. The basic space of the bookstore consists of popular book recommendation areas and public reading areas. We decided to make a reading paradise ove… continue

Heli-stage by Atah | Shops

10 August, 2018 - 00:00

The CTC (China Textile Center) is an art & commercial complex in the Shaoxing, and was officially open in the summer of 2018. The project involves a mix of commercial typologies, and will become the core of the Keqiao Science City in Shaoxing. The Heli-stage of the CTC is the epicenter of the commercial complex and is correspondingly located at the main project entrance, which is the symbolic center of the entire project. Due to the background of the project, a unique structure with its own design language proposes to fuse the various commercial attractions with an artistic blast. The design concept involves a spiral form, blurring the boundary between floors, therefore connecting the exterior space with the interior, creating a continuous exhibition space. In order to achieve such visual effect, a geometric web fuses onto a helical surface. One will shuttle through both indoor and outdoor landscaping via the access staircase without being aware of the transition due to the blu… continue

Pigeon Portraiture: Photographer Highlights Beauty of Everyday Urban Bird

9 August, 2018 - 19:00
[ By WebUrbanist in Art & Photography & Video. ]

An oft overlooked wonder of the urban wilderness, the common pigeon is much more than it appears, with a rich history of aristocratic breeding dating back centuries.

Photographer and native New Yorker Andrew Garn has spent years documenting these creaturing and collecting them into a book titled The New York Pigeon: Behind the Feathers to share their “personalities, expressiveness, glorious feather iridescence, and deeply hued eyes.”

Birds that used to be exchanged between the wealthy as gifts have grown to have different associations, and created a whole industry of pigeon defense systems for urban architecture.
