We continue with the series of houses in which we feel the architect is present in his most intimate side, reflecting his personality, dreams and wishes in his own work. Today we bring you the Kolonihaven pavilion, a project by Miralles and Tagliabue. It is a reflection on the passage of time that filters some pieces of the placid family life of the architects.
Collecting the pass of time...
The house thus becomes a calendar.
It registers the movement of time during the year or during a lifetime...

How do you imagine the garment of a perfect future? Bart Hess envisions a cyborg symbiosis, a textile that wraps and transforms our body, moulding our imperfections and creating an analogy between the corruption of the body and the corruption of software. The proposal was made a few days ago in the form of a performance at the Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2013. Today, we bring you the beautiful pictures of the act.
In his new work Bart Hess looks at a future of cyborg couture, where glitches play across our skin and transform our bodies.

At Ruhrtriennale 2013, the historic industrial building environment keeps being source of amazing artistic interventions. This time, rAndom International makes an installation using water drops as construction material. A delicate, almost immaterial tower, that generates a series of sensorial experiences that contrast with the rigidity of the industrial context.
Commissioned by Urbane Künste Ruhr, rAndom International has built a monumental yet elusive sculpture at Schacht XII, part of the Zollverein World Heritage Site. The London-based studio uses water as a raw building material, creating an ephemeral tower from the innumerable falling drops: Tower / Instant Structure for Schacht XII.
