racconta Mauricio Cardenas: utilizzo il bambù come struttura; ho iniziato per passione, forse anche per nostalgia della Colombia, dove sono cresciuto e dove in casa del mio nonno in campagna giocavo nei boschi di bambù, canna da zucchero e piantagioni di caffè. Il primo progetto l’ho realizzato nel 2006, successivamente ad altre piccole realizzazioni ho avuto l’incarico per la Energy Efficient Bamboo House vicino a Shanghai. Attualmente è in costruzione fuori Pechino un ambizioso progetto, il padiglione espositivo per INBAR (International Organization for Bamboo and Rattan).

Apre a Mumbai il National Museum of Indian Cinema. È dedicato ai film di Bollywood. Il nuovo museo, finanziato dal governo del paese, racconta la storia del genere cinematografico più famoso dell’India, e raccoglie cimeli e macchinari dell’industria filmica del passato

Canzoni, balli, ritmi concitati, abiti di scena coloratissimi e luccicanti: sono gli ingredienti inconfondibili del Bollywood, genere cinematografico indiano il cui termine nasce dalla fusione di Bombay (oggi Mumbai) e Hollywood. Queste pellicole, molto popolari e commercializzate in India, nel corso degli anni hanno raggiunto notorietà e successo in tutto il mondo, tanto da rendere Bollywood una sorta di contraltare orientale alla quasi omonima Hollywood.

En abril de 2019, Chillida Leku reabrirá sus puertas. Fundado en vida por Eduardo Chillida, el museo es el lugar donde se encuentra el corpus de obra más amplio y representativo del artista. Los trabajos de actualización están siendo desarrollados bajo la supervisión del arquitecto argentino Luis Laplace, conocido por sus trabajos de interiorismo y restauración respetuosa y sostenible, desarrollados en intenso vínculo con el arte. Laplace está trabajando en estrecha colaboración con el arquitecto Jon Essery Chillida, nieto del escultor. Chillida Leku está ubicado a las afueras de Hernani, muy cerca de San Sebastián, y está compuesto por un paraje de esculturas al aire libre y un espacio de exposiciones en el interior del caserío de Zabalaga; una construcción tradicional construida en el siglo XVI.

El caserío –edificación central del museo– conservará exactamente el mismo aspecto y estructura que concibió Chillida, pero contará con una iluminación mejorada y con mayor aislamiento en suelos y techos, así como con una adecuada accesibilidad para personas con movilidad reducida. A estas mejoras se suma la puesta en marcha de instalaciones tales como un centro de bienvenida, una cafetería, una tienda y la adecuación del aparcamiento, que mejorarán la experiencia de los visitantes.

Nestled in the upmarket suburb of Dogok, Seoul, sits the newly opened reinvention of Emart's “Star Super”: the "SSG Food Market". by Landini Associates

The brief was to create a world class supermarket and food hall fusion, and Landini Associates were entrusted to redesign every detail of the new store experience. This included: the built environment, naming and identity, signage and communications, ticketing, menus, advertising style guides, packaging and uniforms. In fact every customer touchpoint. The result is a convenient and accessible food lover’s heaven, where locals can do a daily or weekly shop, or dine at one of the many in-store restaurants and cafes. Attracting a newer younger audience, whilst rewarding its existing, the SSG Food Market is a community epicentre to meet, eat and shop in, throughout the day.

There’s even a Design Week Mexico and a couple of good design galleries working with local talents. But before MASA debuted with an exhibition of furniture and lighting by 15 of the city’s top artists and designers, there wasn’t really a definitive platform for contemporary experimental design, at least not one as ambitious as this. Which is exactly what motivated MASA’s founders — designers Héctor Esrawe and Brian Thoreen, curator Agé Salajõe, OMR gallery co-founder Cristobal Riestra, and collectors Roberto Díaz Sesma and Isaac Bissu

Riedel, azienda familiare con una storia di quasi 300 anni, rinomata per i suoi  prodotti in cristallo per la degustazione del vino, in occasione di Ambiente ha presentato le  novità in fatto di calici e decanter.

Bergomum, Bergamo Romana, un colle che diventa città. Palazzo della Ragione, Bergamo Città Alta. 40 anni di scavi in un archeoracconto

Il percorso espositivo si articola in 11 sezioni. La prima, Il Colle che divenne città, trova il suo fulcro in una grande proiezione a terra. Sui teli che delimitano l’area occupata dalla proiezione potremo vedere la riproduzione della Tabula Peutingeriana (in scala 2:1) che avrà uno sviluppo lineare di circa 14 metri. La Tabula, che si sviluppa dalla Spagna e la Britannia fino all’India e alla Cina, illustra il mondo conosciuto in epoca romana. In essa possiamo trovare rappresentata anche Bergamo. Segue la sezione dedicata alle Necropoli e alla Via Borgo Canale. Superata la porta il visitatore si troverà nell’Anfiteatro dove assiste ai giochi gladiatori (su un grande schermo appeso verranno proiettati frammenti tratti dalla ricca filmografia peplum degli anni sessanta/settanta sino ai più recenti film dedicati ai giochi nelle arene romane). Dopo le sezioni dedicate al Foro e agli Edifici pubblici e quella dedicata ai Luoghi di culto si arriva a quella dedicata alle Terme e all’impianto idrico. infine, l’esperienza dello scavo e della scoperta.

Tutto Ponti. Gio Ponti Archi-Designer. Questo il titolo della mostra-omaggio, in programma al Musée des Arts Décoratifs di Rue de Rivoli di Parigi, dedicata al grande maestro milanese del design e dell’architettura, certamente tra i più importanti del XX secolo.

The entrance to the exhibition references Ponti's design for Taranto Cathedral, completed in 1970. It covers Ponti's six-decade career, from 1921 to 1978, and includes architectural and industrial designs, furniture and lighting, magazines, as well as his forays into glassware, ceramics and metalwork.

In the image: a desk with magazine rank designed by Ponti around 1958 is shown in walnut wood. The triple-height space of the main hall is divided into five sections featuring Ponti's commissions, furniture, lighting and textiles, and architectural projects. These are detailed through drawings and papier-mâché models, as well as photographs and film. The exhibition design, by Wilmotte & Associe%u0301s with signage by Italo Lupi, makes full use of the space. It includes tall white room dividers intersected with large-scale reproductions of Ponti's work and photographs of the man himself.

Manus Island

Iranian-Kurdish writer and asylum seeker Behrouz Boochani won Australia’s highest-paying literary prize for a book he wrote through WhatsApp texts while being held in a detention center in Papua New Guinea for five years. Called No Friend but the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison, the book was awarded the 2019 Victorian Prize for Literature, which grants the winning author 125,000 Australian dollars (~$90,000). Unlike previous winners, who include some of Australia’s most prominent writers, Boochani could not attend the ceremony to accept his award, as he remains in detention.

Boochani fled his home country of Iran in 2013 after the police there raided his office and arrested several of his journalist friends. He tried to reach Australia by boat, but the country’s Navy intercepted him and sent him to an offshore detention center on Manus Island, Papua New Guinea, where he’s been held ever since. Boochani is among 600 refugees who remain in the island’s notoriously harsh camps despite Australia having closed its “regional processing center” in 2017. Under Australia’s migration policy, asylum seekers arriving by sea are barred from entering the country; detainees at offshore processing centers are told they’ll never settle on the mainland.
