stefano pujatti reinterprets heritage buildings of northern italy with STONED

stefano pujatti, italian architect and founder of elasticoSPA, has completed the residential project entitled STONED. located in the northeastern italian comune of san quirino, the renovation comprises a single family house and an attached guest house. the project is distinguished by its materiality, a reinterpretation of traditional concrete and stone, which speaks to the vernacular of the heritage buildings of the area. pujatti’s inventive use of stone offers a contemporary element which maintains a seamless harmony with its context, as many of the walls of the original structure have been preserved.

Architect Carlo Ratti has worked with Indian non-profit WeRise to develop a system of low-cost housing with a prefabricated core that homeowners can build any structure they like on top of.

The Livingboard system, which is currently being tried in a pilot project in a village just outside Bangalore, is designed to support housing development in rural areas anywhere in the world. It combines elements of prefabricated housing with the do-it-yourself approach of the open-source and maker movements. Homeowners receive the key functional parts of the house prefabricated and flat-packed — incorporating elements like waste management and water treatment systems — and then design and build the home they want on top of that.

Maidan Tent, la tenda-piazza, è una tensostruttura di quasi 200 mq di superficie coperta; di forma circolare, perché inclusiva e priva di direzioni privilegiate, è stata ideata da Bonaventura Visconti di Modrone con la collaborazione di Leo Bettini Oberkalmsteiner e di altri giovani che hanno saputo ben contestualizzare l’intero progetto, cercare partner e sensibilizzare l’opinione pubblica. Nell’ordine: Giovanni Dufour, grafico; Simon Kirchner, architetto; Giuliano Limonta, psichiatra; Delfino Sisto Legnani e Marco Cappelletti, fotografi; Clementina Grandi, organizzatrice di eventi; Francesca Oddo, addetta stampa.

Temples frequently have at least some form of garden, whereas shrines are often placed within naturally occurring landscapes. As Buddhism traveled in waves from China, so too did Chinese garden aesthetics. The early forms of Japanese gardens were informed by their Chinese counterparts. Zen rock gardens are heavily associated with Japan, but these also came in via Chinese influence.

hotels, restaurants, bars

architecture practice, H2, has designed the saigon thuong mai hotel in the center of vinh, vietnam. the new hotel is rebuilt from the existing one, and the main challenge for the architects was to create a more exciting and easily-recognizable façade for pedestrians. secondly, the interior needed to be redesigned for more effective use and to enable natural light and ventilation into the internal spaces.

located in nakhon si thammarat — one of the most ancient cities in thailand — the LaeKhon NonBai hotel has been designed by junsekino architect and design. with the aim of revitalizing a preexisting building, the intention of the architect was to recreate the visual perception as well as fulfilling the missing elements without changing the structural design.

Tríptico Infame by Pedro Paulo-Venzon departs from the typical structure of a devotional painting to form play between lack and balance, sacred and profane, lightness and severity, zero-degree functionality, and concern with the narratives that underpin the culture of design.

Pedro Paulø-Venzon is a designer who has produced objects and artifacts created from the discussions surrounding contemporary and modern design in Brazil. Most recently he’s been focused on the production of syntheses between the authorial and industrial, local and global, and tradition and its displacements.

L’artigianato è l’essenza di GAN. Per questo motivo GAN si dedica da sempre, insieme ai migliori designer del momento, alla reinterpretazione delle tecniche tradizionali e alla loro applicazione al design contemporaneo. A partire da questa premessa, GAN ha sviluppato nel corso degli anni un sistema di produzione che permette di conservare la tradizione e allo stesso tempo rinnovare l’artigianato, con l’obiettivo di favorire l’evoluzione delle pratiche artigianali e l’ampliamento degli orizzonti del design.

Exhibition designed by Kossmann.dejong gives rise to Israeli censorship. In the exhibition Welcome to Jerusalem, historical, political and religious aspects of the city are shown, and it includes works by both Palestinian and Israeli artists. A multi-layered exhibition has been created through the tailor-made theatrical settings of the 15 themed rooms, the use of multimedia tools and special collection pieces. Whereas one virginal white room exudes a sense of sacredness in order to highlight the story of the three religious schools of thought, a 360-degree film installation is used to sketch a moving portrait of the cycle of increasingly complex conflicts in a room that is dedicated to ‘the city in political conflict’.

Welcome to Jerusalem can be seen in the Jewish Museum Berlin until 30 April 2019.,
