Drawn on Fujiflex and mounted on Plexiglas, Data Driven is a series of eight large-format digital artworks by New York-based designer Karim Rashid. Translating digital data into a formal aesthetic, the resulting undulating forms are organic, digital shapes which move with a particular fluidity.
Designed for cultivating and producing green energy in style, this ‘living’ design process also serves as a new way of visualizing photosynthesis, creating a unique colour system of striking greens, yellows and purples, that responds and evolves to it’s natural surroundings.
Sky is the Limit, by Mésarchitecture, is an entirely new take on the traditional Japanese tea house. Overlooking the Sea of Japan in Yang Yang, South Korea, the structure is composed of two simple converted shipping containers projected 20 meters above the land, rising above the rough sea.
The two separate spaces mirror each other, each one offering a different experience — one is almost entirely transparent and the other features a wooden interior with windows at the end.
Series 7. Designed by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, Denmark. 1950′s.
Loving the mix of stripped back raw surfaces with clean modern elements, in this restoration of a London terraced house, by architects Studio Octopi.
Rather than masking the history of the building behind a contemporary surface, the practice opted to make a set of new insertions to engage with the existing fabric of the house and allow its story to be revealed. In certain areas, layers of plaster have been stripped back to reveal the structural skeleton of the house. All of the revealed structural details, have been wire-brushed but otherwise left untreated and in their raw original state.
