Beirut officially unveils the Knotted Gun "Non-Violence" sculpture, in the first Arab capital.

On the occasion of October 2 The International Day of Non-Violence and the Lebanese National Day of Non-Violence, the universal "sculpture of non-violence", by the Swedish artist CARL FREDRIK REUTERSWÄRD has been unveiled, in the first Arab capital, Beirut.The Knotted Gun sculpture is established on the seafront, just around the corner from the old Holiday Inn building, a concrete tower block deeply scarred by shell and bullet holes from the 1975-90 civil war.

The symbol of Non-Violence is a universal symbol for peace and non-violence without any religious, political or cultural boundaries. It is the symbol of the Swiss based foundation The Non-Violence Project (NVPF) who has since 1993 educated over 8 million young people, teachers and sport coaches globally in how to solve conflicts peacefully through their education programs Schools for Peace and Sports for Peace.The 2nd of October is also the start off point for a fruitful collaboration with the Academic University for Non-Violence and Human Rights (AUNOHR). Through their pioneering work, the founders of the AUNOHR, Ms. Ogarit Younan and Mr. Walid Slaiby, succeeded in establishing a national day of non-violence in Lebanon, thus institutionalizing the culture of non-violence and human rights through the creation of this unique university in the world.

Dubai

Mancano due anni. Dubai guarda a Expo 2020 e in vista del grande evento investe sulle infrastrutture e rinnova la sua immagine globale. La destinazione piace molto agli italiani e i dati finora disponibili confermano anche al di là delle aspettative del 2020 che la città continua a  scommettere su nuove attrazioni e servizi.

L'Emirato di Dubai è uno dei sette emirati dello Stato degli Emirati Arabi Uniti. La sua capitale è la città di Dubai. Dubai ha la più grande popolazione ed è il secondo più grande emirato per area dopo Abu Dhabi. Dubai e Abu Dhabi, secondo la legislazione nazionale, sono inoltre gli unici due emirati ad avere potere di veto riguardo a questioni critiche di rilevanza nazionale.

Isole Galapagos

Le Galápagos (o Galapagos, nella grafia italiana; pron. [%u0261a%u02C8lapa%u0261os][1]), note anche come Arcipelago di Colombo, Arcipelago dell'Ecuador o Arcipelago di Colón, sono un arcipelago di tredici isole vulcaniche(sette maggiori e sei minori) situate nell'Oceano Pacifico, a circa 1.000 chilometri dalla costa occidentale dell'America del Sud. L'arcipelago appartiene all'Ecuador. Le isole sono distribuite a nord e a sud dell'equatore, che attraversa la parte settentrionale dell'isola più grande, Isabela. Le più vecchie datano circa 4 milioni di anni, mentre le più giovani sono ancora in via di formazione. L'arcipelago è infatti considerato una delle zone vulcanicamente più attive della Terra.

L’unica maniera per raggiungere le isole è volare dall’Ecuador, da Quito o da Guayaquil. I prezzi per turisti sono piuttosto standard e variano tra i 400/500$ per persona andata e ritorno. I principali aeroporti sono Baltra e San Cristobal. Esiste anche un piccolo aeroporto ad Isabela ma è utilizzato solo per i voli interni per le tratte: Baltra/Isabela e San Cristobal /Isabela. Le compagnie aeree che volano sulle isole sono principalmente tre: LATAM, TAME  ed AVIANCA. Spesso  Avianca offre delle tariffe più economiche e si trovano online, spesse volte è più conveniente comprare indipendentemente che tramite agenzie. I residenti in Ecuador hanno degli sconti sui voli e così anche i residenti alle isole. I turisti invece devono pagare biglietto intero. Per chi arriva alle isole Galapagos con la propria barca vi è l’obbligo di attraccare presso i tre porti principali ma esiste il divieto di navigare nell’arcipelago. Il traffico marino è infatti regolato dal Galapagos National Park  e solo le barche munite di licenza rislasciata dal parco, non rilasciata a barche private, ha il permesso di navigare. Questo significa che anche chi arriva con la propria barca se vuole scoprire l’arcipelago dovrà per forza prendere parte ad una crociera o ai tours giornalieri.

Micronesia: Palau – Carp Island Resort 

La Micronesia è uno degli angoli più incontaminati del pianeta distante da tutto, lontana dal turismo di massa e mantiene intatte usanze, costumi e tradizioni. Spazi immensi dove lo sguardo si perde nell'azzurro dell' orizzonte e il  cielo e mare sembrano fondersi, spiagge di sabbia bianchissima, spuntano qua e là, tra la fitta vegetazione, mentre l'Oceano sfiora delicatamente queste lingue di terra con le sue onde. Sotto la superficie marina vivono oltre 700 specie di coralli e 1200 specie di pesci, rendendo la Micronesia una delle aree a più alta biodiversità del Pianeta ed una delle destinazioni subacquee più belle al mondo.

alejandro aravena's 'primitive' concrete home hides interiors of subtle luxury

led by alejandro aravena, elemental’s ‘primitive’ design for a home in chile comprises three concrete volumes that over the years have weathered to match their rugged landscape. stacked against one another, the dramatic structure embedded into the hilltop offers a simple composition to match its guiding design ethos. the studio was inspired to create a retreat suspending the conventions of life and going back to more essential living.

its three volumes include one upright, which hosts the bedrooms and bathrooms; a horizontal volume hosting the main living space which can be opened up to the outdoors; and lastly, a skewed volume that acts as a chimney. the property instills tranquility whilst pairing things back to the fundamentals: its concrete walls are left exposed and in place of a formal fire place is simply a ‘place for fire’.the 2,690-square-foot house has been conceived with the possibility of integrating all spaces thanks to floor-to-ceiling glass windows offering sweeping views of the surrounding landscape, and sliding walls that allow open/loft living or privacy. it also features two imposing terraces: on the last floor, an intimate covered terrace, and on the entrance level a large terrace suspended above the ravine. the pure and primitive design is complemented by details and luxury finishes with comfort in all its spaces.

bjarke ingels group designs 'conscious and entrepreneurial' school in new york

In 2017, bjarke ingels group (BIG) revealed plans for a new micro-school in new york. now, a year later, the first photographs of the project have been revealed with the school term well underway. According to BIG, the design for WeGrow — the first school of office-sharing brand WeWork — seeks to ‘undo the compartmentalization often found in traditional school environments and reinforces the significance of engaging kids in an interactive environment’. Conceived as a ‘school universe at the level of the child’, the interior comprises a field of super-elliptic objects, which together, form a ‘learning landscape that’s dense and rational — yet free and fluid.’ Modular classrooms, tree houses, and a vertical farm have been designed by BIG to promote an inclusive and collaborative learning environment. meanwhile, acoustic clouds, natural materials, and neutral colors hope to create a calm setting focused study.

WeGrow was created to unleash the creative potential of all generations through design,’ explains bjarke ingels, who is also chief architect at WeWork. ‘with this first location in new york city, we have created a space to facilitate and accommodate WeGrow’s transformative approach to learning because as life evolves, so should the framework in which we live in. children realize they have agency and when design is less prescriptive and more intuitive — we don’t have to tell kids how to use the space and every interpretation of how they use the space is good.’

La metamorfosi dell’Hotel des Postes di Luxembourg

“Un gioiello incastonato in uno scrigno di pietra”. Ecco il progetto vincitore, dello studio Vincent Callebaut Architectures di Parigi, destinato a ristrutturare l’ufficio postale d’epoca Post Luxembourg del 1910, traslocato. “La metamorfosi trasforma il bruco in una farfalla” spiega il pluripremiato architetto belga Vincent Callebaut. “Con la metamorfosi non si tratta di ricominciare da zero, ma di integrare il meglio di ogni epoca nel nostro futuro. Abbiamo sviluppato una crisalide coperta da una cupola solare che si adatta ai contorni del cortile interno.”

Exhibition Hall / Marte.Marte Architects, Messepl. 1, 6850 Dornbirn, Austria, ph faruk plinjo

Text description provided by the architects. Due to a lack of space, the fairgrounds were moved to the outskirts of town in the mid-1970s, construction took place in several stages, and the resulting trade fair center has since been renovated step by step – with famous architecture firms responsible for certain elements of the 14 exhibition halls. The master plan created in 2012 outlines the upcoming renovation of the west axis – the agora, the central square, should play a bigger role; the orientation within the buildings and open spaces calls for improvement; and the sequence and function of the exhibition halls could be aligned better.

Marte Marte Architects convinced the competition jury with its outstanding design, which is characterized by power and restraint. The mighty gesture of the enormous emblematic structure – four exhibition halls are combined into one gigantic, monolithic building measuring 170 m long, nearly 70 m wide, and 16.5 m high – provides the existing conglomerate with an organizing principle and injects it with new energy.The backbone of the building is the interior circulation axis – room-high glazed openings guide visitors through the series of exhibition halls – red, black, red, black. As eye-catching as the elliptical, hyperbolic incisions in the two longitudinal sides of the buildings are, the color scheme of the giant is just as powerful and vivid – pure, rich colors without shading like those used in coats of arms.The dimensions and the power of the rooms are impressive. The entire building complex is crisscrossed with a lattice of 4.5-meter-high trusses made of laminated beams, giving one the impression of being placed side by side. A dropped ceiling covers the installation level and only the bottom flanges are visible.

Casa Salvatori in Milan brings together marble furnishings and flecked terrazzo floors

Marble artworks, ornaments and furniture appear throughout this Milanese apartment, designed by Elissa Ossino Studio for the head of Italian stone brand Salvatori.

The apartment is set within a 200-year-old palazzo in Brera, fronting the same courtyard as Salvatori's Milan showroom, where the brand sells a variety of natural stone tiles, furniture and homeware. Having grown tired of the apartment's characterless white surfaces and fixtures, brand CEO Gabriele Salvatori tasked designer Elisa Ossino and her eponymous studio with giving the space a more intimate feel, so he could entertain friends and clients "in a more convivial context". "It was a great opportunity to show and experiment with the use of Salvatori's beautiful marble collection in a domestic environment," Ossino told. "I wanted to design an interior that was able to fully tell the Salvatori story, deeply connected to marble manufacturing." In the living room, the old a partition wall and false ceiling were knocked through to give the illusion of more space. There are also a selection of pieces by Salvatori scattered around the room's off-white sofa and wicker armchairs. Founded in 1946, Salvatori is one of Italy's leading manufacturers of stone and marble, and has previously worked with architects and designers including John Pawson. This project taps into the trend for making clever use of marble in home interiors. Other examples include a flat in Portugal with a peach-toned marble bathroom and a penthouse in Belgium with a marble partition wall.

daewha kang design's experimental workspace combines biophilic principles with technology

bringing together data and architecture, london-based studio daewha kang design has created a two-part experimental work environment on the 12th floor of the shard to measure the impact of biophilic design on worker wellness and productivity. the project comprises two spaces designed according to the principles of biophilia, human beings’ innate need to connect to nature, which make them seek qualities of light, view, material, and other factors common in the natural world. 

created in collaboration with dr. marcella ucci for the london headquarters of outsourcing and facilities management company mitie, the project includes the living lab, a fully immersive work environment, and two regeneration pods for short-term rest and meditation. in the living lab, daewha kang design has developed a series of intricate patterns using natural materials, including different shades and textures of bamboo on the floor, desks, task lights and privacy screens which wrap onto the ceiling. the project is also developed as a pilot study to measure the impact on employees, who will work at these desks for four weeks at a time answering daily surveys about their comfort, satisfaction, and emotional response, and another four weeks in a control area on the same floor built without biophilic design, to compare their responses between the two spaces.photos by tom donald for aldworth james & bond, kyungsub shin

Tsinghua University furniture design graduate Yuming Hu has created a range of chairs designed for the peculiar behaviours of different users.

Hu, a recent graduate from the Department of Environmental Art Design at Tsinghua University in Beijing, noticed that most chairs are designed under the guidance of ergonomics. He concluded that this only meets the basic need for the body. Designing for "sitting behaviour" could lead to much more specific design.Hu looked individually at the way people moved their upper limbs, hands, lower limbs, feet and torso when sitting and designed a set of six chairs that aim to satisfy these movements.

One chair, which features a large outer circle, allows a user to reach up with their arms and stretch by grabbing hold of two smaller rings. This shape came from an observation that the seated body often requires a good, deliberate stretching. "The most comfortable sitting position is always the next position. People sit or rest while they interact with others. The weight of the body often appears to the left, right, or back." In order to make this restless movement more comfortable, Hu designed a light green chair with a curving, padded back rest that allows the user to lean their back against the chair at any angle. Another chair has arms that extend vertically outwards to allow the user to occupy space beyond the seat itself, while a third chair is designed to rock forwards to help the user stand up from a work desk when the weight of the body is already leaning forwards.

Joe Doucet designs 3D-printed vessels to "represent dining in the 21st century"

New York designer Joe Doucet has created a collection of knobbly 3D-printed homeware for an exhibition at the city's Cooper Hewitt museum. The set of greyscale cutlery, cookware, serving and storage capsules was designed by Doucet for the Tablescapes: Designs for Dining showcase at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum.

The homeware series is intended "to represent dining in the 21st Century" and was "designed with limited resources in mind", according to a statement from the designer. The vessels were created to perform multiple functions for food preparation and service. For example, lids can be used as plates and trivets, while sealing the bowls to keep contents fresh. "By creating hybrid vessels, which act as cooking, serving and storage for food, we eliminate the need to use separate items for each step and avoid wasting potable water to clean each item between uses," said Doucet.

poltrona angolo, design corrado corradi dell'aquila, 1963

la Poltrona Angolo, concepita da Dell’Acqua nel 1963, che oggi TATO ha scelto di rieditare. Una seduta di piccole dimensioni, sofisticata quanto il suo ideatore, caratterizzata da uno schienale avvolgente che incorpora i braccioli e da una struttura modulare che le consente di essere abbinata in linea ad un elemento gemello per arrivare a creare un piccolo divanetto. Se staccata leggermente all’interno della ‘coppia', favorisce la conversazione “Vis à Vis”, secondo il modello ottocentesco. Con l'aggiunta di uno o più pouf, semplice o dotato di uno schienale appena accennato, permette infinite combinazioni

Avvocato di formazione, scrittore per passione e designer per vocazione, Corrado Corradi Dell’Acqua è stato esponente della “scuola milanese” del design. Ha dunque fatto parte dell’avanguardia di un movimento che, nelle sue molteplici declinazioni, avrebbe poi contribuito a dare vita alla moderna industria italiana del mobile. Compagno di Ignazio Gardella al liceo Berchet, amico personale di Gio Ponti e Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Corrado Corradi Dell’Acqua è conosciuto per i suoi progetti essenziali ed eleganti.

Alykhan Velji's heritage and travels influence his Modern India furniture for Mobilia

Canadian designer Alykhan Velji used his first trip to India to inform this furniture and home collection for Mobilia, which includes green marble stools, brass frames and arch motifs.Velji travelled to his ancestral home country with his mother, and came back with the inspiration for his Modern India range.

"This collection is pretty close to my heart as it is my first collaboration but also because I had the chance to experience India for the first time with my mom," he told. The Calgary-based interior designer, who makes frequent television appearances as a style expert, partnered with Canadian furniture brand Mobilia to produce the 15-piece set. Velji put a contemporary spin on the colours, materials and patterns he found in India to form the basis of the series. Visits to Jaipur's architectural salvage warehouses and craft workshops also informed the designs.

magritte, la ligne de vie, masil lugano, fino al 6 gennaio 2019

La mostra Magritte. La Ligne de vie, nata in collaborazione con la Fondazione Magritte di Bruxelles, propone circa settanta opere dell’artista belga, in prestito da musei internazionali e collezionisti privati. Il percorso espositivo segue il filo conduttore offerto dalla conferenza “La Ligne de vie” che Magritte tenne ad Anversa nel 1938. In quell’occasione, una delle poche in cui l’artista si espresse pubblicamente sulla sua opera, Magritte illustrò l’evoluzione della propria poetica e citò gli artisti che maggiormente lo avevano suggestionato. 
La mostra documenta l’evoluzione di Magritte a partire dalle opere giovanili – differenziandosi in questo dalle tradizionali esposizioni che ne propongono solo le creazioni più caratteristiche – e mette in luce l’influenza che le avanguardie italiane ebbero su di lui attraverso paralleli con alcune opere futuriste e metafisiche.

le sculture di pabo picasso alla galleria borghese di roma

Possono le sculture di Pablo Picasso dialogare con il patrimonio artistico della Galleria Borghese? È quello che Anna Coliva e Diana Widmaier-Picasso hanno egregiamente fatto, curando Picasso. La scultura, mostra appena inaugurata alla Galleria Borghese a Roma. Un dialogo facilmente riconoscibile che pone in relazione le sculture, di materiali diversi, di Picasso con i capolavori dei Maestri. Con un percorso che affronta vari temi, vengono presentate le opere dell’artista spagnolo, che visitò la Galleria Borghese durante il suo viaggio in Italia nel 1917

Il primo confronto diretto si ha nel salone d’ingresso tra le sculture in bronzo e cemento di Picasso, raffiguranti teste femminili e maschili, con l’arte romana e i busti di Gian Battista della Porta: un intervallarsi su diversi piani di profondità, di opere di epoche e materiali diversi che sembrano essere state sempre messe in relazione. Il dialogo tra i vari capolavori è sempre più evidente sala dopo sala: nella sezione Metamorfosi della materia la scultura in lamiera di Pablo Picasso, Donna con il bambino (1961), viene presentata insieme a quella marmorea di Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Apollo e Dafne

Artificial mountain made of soil could soak up pollution in Turin

Sponge Mountain is a proposal by architect Angelo Renna for a 90-metre-high mound of soil, which would absorb carbon dioxide from the air in Turin. Amsterdam-based Renna imagines the artificial mountain being made out of the soil excavated during the construction of a 170-mile railway tunnel, planned between the northern Italian city and Lyon, France. Sponge Mountain would soak up the carbon dioxide in the air and also provide a new park for Turin. It would passively soak up the carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere by industry and traffic, locking it into the soil so that it no longer contributes to climate change. Turin's residents would also be able to enjoy it, as it could be planted with trees and have pathways cut into it, to transform it into a city park.

Rapa Nui, l'Isola di Pasqua

Easter Islanders Ask British Museum to Return Sacred Statue, Offering replica in return. The Rapa Nui community has offered a basalt replica of the eight-foot, four-ton sculpture called Hoa Hakananai’a, which was stolen in 1868.

The eight-foot-tall Moai sculpture at the British Museum is called Hoa Hakananai’a, which translates to “the stolen or hidden friend.” This name is fitting, since the four-ton statue was stolen from the island in 1868 by Royal Navy captain Richard Powell, and presented as a gift to Queen Victoria. She donated it to the national museum in London in 1869. Now, as reported by the Guardian, the Rapa Nui people, indigenous to Easter Island, would like their statue back, please and thank you. As Easter Island sits about 2,000 miles off the coast of Chile, advocates for the reclamation and restoration of Rapa Nui culture have petitioned the Chilean government to arbitrate on their behalf for the return of the work — which is not only considered an object of sacred worship, but believed to house the spirit or mana of the depicted deity.

New Zealand’s Most Beautiful Train Ride Is Reopening in December

The Coastal Pacific Train is back after being closed for two years after the Kaikoura earthquake destroyed the tracks along the scenic route. When the 7.8 magnitude Kaikoura earthquake ripped across the northeastern coast of New Zealand’s South Island in November 2016, it destroyed homes and roads and sent miles of the Main North Line’s railroad tracks into the sea, ending one third of KiwiRail’s scenic train rides in the region. Although the Main North Line was reconnected in August 2017 for freight trains to help remove rubble from the subsequent landslides, the scenic Coastal Pacific Train is finally reopening on December 1, 2018, to make the six-hour journey up the scenic Pacific Coast of the South Island from Christchurch to Picton once again.Along the 61-mile route, you’ll take in the scenery of the Kaikoura mountain range, the rocky beaches near Oaro, as well as pass through 22 tunnels and over 175 bridges. Each ticket includes a seat in a train car with panoramic windows and skylights built to maximize the views, but if you’d like, you can also take in the scenery from the open-air viewing car to take pictures sans window glare.

One of Ettore Sottsass’ commissioned residences has recently hit the global market. Located in Kula, Maui this iconic build, referred to as the "Sottsass jewel" is being offered for the first time.

After heartfelt consideration, the Owners are releasing their tenure. Sottsass was truly vested in the build. Exploring Maui, Sottsass was inspired by the deep blue Pacific ocean to the sands of Maui's beaches. Every element was designed with a purpose and an intention. Sottsass, too, designed the organic landscape which graces the property. Mr. Sottsass also designed flatware, dinnerware, glassware and other objects for the home, which are being offered as a separate sale to the fortunate new Owner. The home and property has been revered by the Owners since its inception and is in immaculate condition. “Extraordinary” and “Iconic” rightly describe this commissioned build.

Debris House by Wallmakers, Vinu Daniel lead architect, Pathanamthitta, India, ph Anand Jaju, Wallmakers

Text description provided by the architects. Nestled in a quaint township, is this rammed earth residence for a family of six. The site was at a slope with remnants of many demolished buildings.  Maximizing the given area the building is set in multiple levels to accommodate the family and to meet the client’s dreams in the most feasible way. This house employs recycled and eco-sensitive materials in its making with much care all the while ensuring that the material limitations are overcome and an expressive architecture is allowed to emerge from the constraints. The Debris wall is built over a discovered foundation and with materials that are recycled from the site. The coconut shell filler slab enables the architect to reduce concrete in the same. While the house uses numerous alternate technologies, there is a certain whimsy and playfulness in its design.

Alcázar de Toledo / Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos, Palacio Versalles 237, Lomas de Reforma, 11930 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico, ph Jaime Navarro, HH Fotografía

Text description provided by the architects. This luxury residential project enjoys a privileged location in Mexico City and peerless natural surroundings. The site has a very rugged topography so it was decided to integrate as far as possible the architecture to these natural formations, with the aim of respecting the environment and exploiting the extraordinary panoramic views of the city that can be seen between the vegetation. The architectural concept is based on a linear element which folds itself over the topography in a right-angled zigzag shape. Each fold responds to different needs and contains the spaces for the five departments, with large terraces, amenities and parking. This resulting piece of four levels, as it adapts to the ground, is transformed into a structure element (like a wall or slab) or an open plaza or terrace. A solution that creates an elegant and subtle shape with a clear horizontality between the native vegetation of the context.

Il progetto ha visto come primo momento di visibilità un’installazione promossa da 5VIE art design per il Fuorisalone 2018 nelle cantine del Siam, dove è stata riprodotta una cella del carcere di Opera e una allestita con i prototipi dei nuovi arredi, realizzati in parte in plastica riciclata e prodotti nelle falegnamerie sociali impegnate nel progetto: il laboratorio Arteticamente di Sacra Famiglia e il Polo formativo Legno Arredo. Il team di progettazione composto da tutor di comprovata esperienza e giovani designer ha lavorato su due principi fondamentali: sopperire alla mancanza di spazio (si parla di 9 mq. per due persone) e aumentare la flessibilità, con arredi che abbiano ingombri e utilizzi diversi nell’arco della giornata. I giovani designer hanno preso alla lettera la metafora “da rifiuto a risorsa”, progettando un sistema di arredi modulare, resistente e flessibile, per dare dignità al soggiorno di detenzione, favorire l’acquisizione di nuove competenze mediante lavoro, studio, gioco e bricolage e individuare un nuovo cammino, nella legalità.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop opens first UK pop-up store

Goop, the lifestyle and wellness brand led by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, has opened its first pop-up store in London featuring California-inspired interiors by Fran Hickman.The Goop store is located in the affluent Notting Hill neighbourhood, nestled among a row of high-end boutiques along Westbourne Grove. It is the wellness brand's first pop-up space in the UK. Previously they have only opened temporary stores in US cities including in Dallas and New York, while maintaining a permanent Goop "lab" in Los Angeles.Walls in the beauty department, which sits at an elevated level at the store's rear, have been painted gold to reflect the warm climate in California. This room has been dressed with red-frame cabinets that display makeup and skincare products, and large circular mirrors. ph Fran Hickman

Palermo, Capitale Italiana della Cultura 2018

L'adesione della Città Metropolitana alla candidatura di Palermo per il titolo di Capitale Italiana della Cultura 2018 amplia l'offerta culturale della manifestazione e ne amplifica la funzione di volano culturale ed economico. L'area coinvolta, corrispondente alla ex Provincia di Palermo, è un generatore di ricchezza, di opportunità di lavoro e di crescita della produttività attraverso la sua capacità di attrarre popolazione, ed economie da agglomerazione offrendo al tempo stesso i vantaggi della specializzazione e quelli della diversità dovuti alle maggiori dotazioni di capitale (umano e fisico). La programmazione delle attività ad oggi definita si estende da Monreale a Castelbuono attraversando Palermo e i comuni della costa tra i quali Bagheria e Cefalù. E' evidente il riferimento all'itinerario arabo – normanno (Monreale, Palermo, Cefalù) con una estensione a Castelbuono motivata da due elementi principali. Il primo il coinvolgimento dell'area madonita per le sue ricchezze naturalistiche, storiche e culturali. Il secondo per la connessione strategica già esistente con il Museo Civico di Castelbuono che si è distinto negli ultimi anni per la capacità di coniugare tradizioni e arte contemporanea e per la funzione di snodo culturale all'interno di un sistema a rete diffuso sul territorio. Non si poteva di contro tralasciare in una prospettiva metropolitana la ricchezza monumentale e culturale della Città di Bagheria. Il museo Guttuso, le ville nobiliari pubbliche e private, le tradizioni popolari e le produzioni dell'artigianato artistico, così come la dimensione letteraria e cinematografica. La realizzazione condivisa del progetto di candidatura sarà l'occasione per definire metodologie di gestione integrata di spazi e attività integrando il sistema dei 4 poli già definito a livello comunale con altri beni e servizi di pertinenza della Città Metropolitana. Il coinvolgimento della Città Metropolitana, consente inoltre di arricchire ulteriormente l'offerta di spazi culturali nella Città di Palermo e in particolare il Loggiato di San Bartolomeo e Palazzo Sant'Elia.

Viceroy Chicago

The city is reconnecting with its storied architectural roots. Now take all of these developments, put them into hotel form, and you have Viceroy Chicago. Located in the heart of Chicago’s ultra-affluent Gold Coast neighborhood, the hotel is in the thick of the posh restaurant scene — bolstered by Viceroy’s own restaurant and rooftop lounge — and was built on the former site of the historic Cedar Hotel (you can see the original 1920s brick and terracotta façade incorporated into the Viceroy’s design). It’s official: The Second City is done playing second fiddle. A blend of Art Deco and mid-century modern decor lends each space a glamorous, retro vibe and captures the former glory of the 1920s-era Cedar Hotel, which closed in 2014 to make way for Viceroy Chicago. The Cedar Hotel’s original brick and terracotta façade was incorporated into the base of the Viceroy’s sleek, 18-story glass tower.

parlano i progettisti, Francesco Boschini e Edoardo Lonardi:

"Il progetto è un progetto di tesi, quindi non realizzato. E' una proposta che vuole risolvere un'area nel pieno centro storico di Verona, nel tessuto romano, irrisolta e in decadimento da anni. L'area è ubicata in via Guglielmo Oberdan. Nella nostra proposta vi è un bar pubblico al piano terra, accorpato alla hall dell'hotel. I due piani sopra sono camere (richiamo alla funzione storica dell'hotel ovvero una mansio (struttura ricettiva in epoca romana) e all'ultimo piano, un ristorante sui tetti di Verona, patrimonio Unesco. l'interrato invece è un centro espositivo e archeologico per la visita del reperto romano nella pancia dell'edificio. il nome del bar/ristorante non è stato pensato poiché non esiste l'attività. Se dovessimo chiamarlo noi, lo chiameremmo bar Astra (come il cinema di epoca fascista presente fino a pochi decenni fa)"

Laurids Gallée creates lamps out of cord traditionally used on costumes and uniforms

Designer Laurids Gallée used lengths of cord produced by a historic Viennese passementarie factory to create the curved forms of these lamps. Gallée took the traditional square cord produced by M Maurer – a factory dating back to 1863 – and shaped it into a series of snaking forms. These are illuminated by simple, geometric lights, which integrate subtle colours.The designer was one of five paired with different traditional Austrian manufacturers during Vienna Design Week, for a project called Passionswege. The brief was for the designers to put a contemporary spin on the companies' highly crafted products, to show how they can remain relevant in a contemporary market.

studio drift installs hanging bouquet of robotic flowers that blossom when you are near

amsterdam-based studio drift has choreographed 18 mechanical flowers as part of a kinetic installation presented during dutch design week 2018. meadow is an upside down landscape that is meant to remind the viewer of the impermanence of the constantly changing seasons and characteristics of natural growth processes. the cluster of robotic flowers reacts to the visitors as if they where the sun to a blooming flower, opening to reveal a complex structure of unfolding fabric. as each one expands the light inside also grows, slowly diffusing to illuminate the entire pendant. underneath meadow integrated sensors translate the presence of visitors into different ‘moods’ with each blossom mixing the light color and the gradient color of the fabric. together they create a kaleidoscopic effect from below or an experience of a botanical creature ignited by the viewer.

Wainwright's book, published by Taschen released on 22 June 2018, offers a glimpse inside the notoriously secretive nation. The 200 photos in the book, which are available to purchase, document the strange and colourful architecture of the country and its capital Pyongyang. Completely rebuilt after the end of the Korean War in 1953, the city is the grand vision of the country's first leader, Kim Il Sung, and contains many intriguing buildings.

from top left, clockwise: 1) Grand People's Study House, Pyongyang, 1982. A statue of the country's founding president, Kim Il Sung, welcomes visitors into the Grand People's Study House, built in 1982 as the central library of Pyongyang. 2) Built in 1982 to celebrate the 70th birthday of Kim Il Sung, the Arch of Triumph is apparently clad with 25,550 slabs of stone, marking the number of days of the leader's life at that point; 3) Claimed to be the deepest subway system in the world, at 110 metres below ground, the Pyongyang metro shares the same palatial scale and lavish decoration as the Moscow metro, with platforms adorned with marble columns and crystal chandeliers; 4) Built for the 1989 World Festival of Youth and Students (a kind of communist Olympic Games), the May Day Stadium was designed to resemble the unfurling petals of a magnolia flower, or a parachute that has just settled on the ground. It is said to be the largest stadium in the world, with capacity for 114,000 people; 5) Changgwang Health and Recreation Complex, Pyongyang, 1980, a mechanical elevator shuttles swimmers up to the diving boards behind a smoked glass screen in the Changgwang Health and Recreation Complex, a massive leisure centre built in Pyongyang in 1980.

Lo CSAC – Centro Studi e Archivio della Comunicazione dell'Università di Parma, presenta la mostra 1968. Un Anno, nella Sala Polivalente dello CSAC di Parma.

Un grande racconto che si concentra, attraverso un taglio rigorosamente sincronico, su un anno chiave della storia del Novecento, restituito attraverso un’indagine all’interno dell’archivio dello CSAC, il cui primo nucleo nasce proprio nel 1968, che vuole far emergere le trasformazioni nel sistema della comunicazione, i mutamenti socio-antropologici e una nuova riflessione sul corpo e sull’ambiente, che esplosero in quell’anno. L’ossatura della mostra all’interno del suggestivo spazio della Chiesa abbaziale di Valserena è costituita da una lunga timeline, composta da oggetti, immagini e cronache, affiancata da una sequenza di approfondimenti dedicati alla trasformazione del sistema delle immagini e delle differenti scale del progetto degli spazi e del territorio. La riflessione sul corpo è rappresentata a differenti scale: dal gioiello all’abito, dall’ideazione di nuovi luoghi della cultura giovanile alla ridefinizione della scena e alla riappropriazione dello spazio pubblico. Il confronto di molteplici sistemi di segni e iconografie avviene attraverso manifesti, progetti di abiti e gesti, reportage fotografici: dall’immaginario cinematografico e per la scena teatrale con i costumi provenienti dall’archivio della sartoria di Piero Farani (per il film BarbarellaIl cavaliere inesistente, per il teatro con Il Barone di Birbanza) alle sfilate happening ideate per Mare Moda Capri (Walter Albini) all’affermazione dell’uomo moda (Carlo Palazzi) e della maglieria (Albertina, Krizia).

Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band dei Beatles, assieme alla figlia e artista Liberty Blake, ha creato nel 2016 Work in Progress Project, un’opera murale che rende omaggio alle figure femminili che hanno rivoluzionato la Storia delle arti, delle scienze, e della giustizia sociale con 250 volti. Gli spazi di Zazà ramen saranno animati da sei pannelli dell’originale “Work in Progress Project”, invitando gli ospiti a chiedersi quale nome e quale storia si celino dietro a ciascun volto.

Chengdu plans to launch artificial moon to replace its street lights

The Chinese city of Chengdu is planning to launch an illumination satellite disguised as an artificial moon within the next two years, as a replacement for its street lights. The satellite would imitate the glow of the real moon while emitting a more powerful light, able to illuminate the city's streets at night. Wu Chunfeng, chairman of Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute, announced the news at a national mass innovation and entrepreneurship event earlier this month. Chinese newspaper People's Daily reports that the illumination satellite is designed to complement the moon at night, boasting a "dusk-like glow" that will be bright enough to replace street lights in the south-western city of Chengdu.
