Small Studio for Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture

This small studio for drawing, painting, and sculpture acts as a visual device itself by bi-directionally framing its surroundings. To the southeast, a great amount of daylight enters through tilted glazing. To block direct sun, if desired, and to enable the modulation of light and climatic conditions, exterior screens are deployed. To the northwest, a system of frames is installed that enable bronze sculptures to be suspended in front of the glass and in direct sight of the working artist. In that spot, the bronze sculptures receive their natural patina while being staged as a motive of reflection and confrontation for the artist. The building features two separate levels, which serve different functions. The upper level is designed to be a workplace where most of the sketches and small watercolors are done, while on the lower level, medium-sized canvases and small sculptures will be produced. The semi-industrial character of the project stems from the reference to the typology of the shed roof factory. Here, this typology is being reduced to its simplest case — a single box with a single skylight. The use of raw and untreated materials contributes to the character of a workshop. The façade panels are made …

The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings (TED Books)

The founder of Architizer.com and practicing architect draws on his unique position at the crossroads of architecture and social media to highlight 100 important buildings that embody the future of architecture.

We’re asking more of architecture than ever before; the response will define our future.

A pavilion made from paper. A building that eats smog. An inflatable concert hall. A research lab that can walk through snow. We’re entering a new age in architecture—one where we expect our buildings to deliver far more than just shelter. We want buildings that inspire us while helping the environment; buildings that delight our senses while serving the needs of a community; buildings made possible both by new technology and repurposed materials.

Like an architectural cabinet of wonders, this book collects the most innovative buildings of today and tomorrow. The buildings hail from all seven continents (to say nothing of other planets), offering a truly global perspective on what lies ahead. Each page captures the soaring confidence, the thoughtful intelligence, the space-age wonder, and at times the sheer whimsy of the world’s most inspired buildings—and the questions they provoke: Can a building breathe? Can a skyscraper be built in a day? Can we 3D-print a house? Can we live on the moon?

Filled with gorgeous imagery and witty insight, this book is an essential and delightful guide to the future being built around us—a future that matters more, and to more of us, than ever.
