Sou Fujimoto Architects
Apartamento is so real and shows the most original homes, living spaces and design solutions. I made an ode to Apartamento Magazine by a photoshoot. Rum Magazine is a danish interior and architecture magazine with the an incredible sense of taste. Glamcult showes the love for design, fashion, graphic design and photography.
Fascinating, forceful, clear and minimal architecture. These architects created wonderfull concepts. In the middle you can see The Truffle by Ensamble Studio.
The truffle is a piece of nature built with earth, full of air. A space within a stone that sits on the ground and blends in with the territory. It camouflages, by emulating the processes of mineral formation in its structure and integrates with the natural environment, complying with its laws.
They made a hole in the ground, piling up on its perimeter, the topsoil removed and obtained a retaining dike without mechanical consistency. Then, they materialized the air building a volume with hay bales and flooded the space between the earth and the built air to solidify it. The poured mass concrete wrapped the air and protected itself with the ground. time passed and we removed the earth, discovering an amorphous mass.
Atelier de Lyon
This took my breath away. The installation is a collaboration between Transsolar climate enginners and Tetsuo Kondo Architects. It was shown at the Venice Biennale. Cloudscape creates a cloud in the interior of the Arsenale. Visitors can walk below, through, and above the cloud on a walkway that could easily be mistaken for a section.
