Grotto by Takk Architects, Madrid, Spain

the project tries to redefine the classic configuration of a store that is strictly intended to the sale of products and do a more complex proposal. “Grotto” is a space where, as well as seeing and buying the classical watches of the Swiss brand, the focus of its attention is to generate a place for meeting where propose other public activities such as lectures, workshops or debates. For that purpose a single, organic, soft, festive, and with geological references space is proposed. ph José Hevia

Coming to its construction, the project is organized in six domes that are concatenated around a central pillar and making space, function and structure coincident. The top part of these domes allows the access of light through a hidden lighting system behind a floral pattern that, if wished, it can cause the highlighting of the space through its projected shadows. The vertical dome walls are organically deformed so to absorb a part of the proposed functionality, using openings or holes as seats or improvised tribunes. Finally, the biggest dome is used as the main shopping space. A curtain specially built for the occasion through a catenary system made out of chains and foam pieces wraps the exhibition space for watches and achieves a unique experience of watching and selling in the complex.

A massive curving slab of concrete covers the new school of architecture building at the University of Miami, by local firm Arquitectonica. The Thomas P Murphy Design Studio Building is the latest addition to the University of Miami campus in Coral Gables, Florida – southeast of Downtown Miami. The Thomas P Murphy building is toped with a bowed roof that swoops across the project in a wave-like manner, and extends far out to form a covered patio alongside floor-to-ceiling windows.

According to architect and academic Frank Locker, in architectural education, we keep repeating the same formula from the 20th-century: teachers transmitting a rigid and basic knowledge that gives students, no matter their motivation, interests, or abilities, little to no direction. In this way, says Locker, we are replicating, literally, prisons, with no room for an integral, flexible, and versatile education. "What do you think of when you're in a space with closed doors and a hallway where you can't enter without permission or a bell that tells you when you can enter and leave?" asks Locker.


Musicality School/Manuel Collado Arpia, Madrid, Spain, ph Manuel Collado

The project for the musicality school is born from a great conversation about the processes of musical learning and creativity. As a result of this symbiosis, key concepts arose to which the architecture of the new space had to respond: awakening musical curiosity / discovery, the circle, collective practice and community, awareness of space and body plus sustainability.

The circle has been a constant in the idea of musical learning and works as a unifying geometry at different levels. As a symbol of community in the musical practice, transmitting the type of interactions in groups of this school. Then as an archetypal geometric symbol of unity, where by means of its repetition at different scales, from lighting to openings, it organizes a spatial form of musical composition. The environmental harmony is completed by the triangle that appears in the treatment of the sockets and the square / rectangle of the classroom form. These three geometries are considered foundational in all traditions of environmental knowledges.

Sea blues, sunny yellows and bold monochromatic stripes appear throughout this boutique hotel, designed by artist Camille Walala to complement to the landscape of Mauritius.

Mama Shelter Belgrado

Parla il linguaggio dell’ibridazione di stili e culture Mama Shelter Belgrade, ultima e più recente perla del brand nato dall’esperienza della famiglia Trigano e dalla creatività di Philippe Starck. Incastonato in una terra di mezzo in perenne divenire come la Città Bianca, la nuova location è fusion e multiforme, pensata per una clientela casual, ma attenta allo stile

Mama Shelter Belgrade, l’ottavo del brand, come i predecessori, porta la firma  dell’interior designer brasiliano Amor Jalil, allievo di Philippe Starck, il cui progetto è tutto un omaggio alla storia millenaria della capitale serba. Sul telaio del concept ideato dalla famiglia Trigano – boutique hotel di design, ricercati ma informali, abbordabili e rivolti a ospiti di ogni generazione e cultura – Jalil ha intessuto un racconto materico e cromatico che ripercorre le mille suggestioni e gli influssi della capitale serba nelle reminiscenze orientali dei tappeti kilim e nei vivaci colori dei corpi illuminanti che ne impreziosiscono le aree comuni e la grafica rigorosa delle stampe vintage

Pelty – Il suono dal fuoco: l’unico speaker bluetooth al mondo azionato dal calore del fuoco. Pelty è un oggetto intrinsecamente legato alla natura. Realizzato in ceramica, legno e vetro, Pelty utilizza il fuoco per espletare la sua missione: accesa la fiamma, riproduce la musica dei tuoi device. Nessun cavo elettrico lo lega. Nessuna batteria lo alimenta.

Pelty è composto esternamente da una base in legno su cui poggia la struttura in ceramica. Sulla base è presente un piccolo serbatoio ricaricabile di un qualsiasi combustibile comune – alcool domestico ad esempio, oppure bioetanolo, consigliato da Pelty perché inodore e per la bassa emissione di CO2. Basta accendere dunque lo stoppino collegato al serbatoio perché la cella di Peltier nascosta dentro la struttura, attraverso il suo differenziale di temperature, permetta che la magia abbia inizio: la riproduzione della musica che il device collegato gli invia attraverso la tecnologia bluetooth.
