And it finishes with Zaha Hadid's Library and Learning Centre in Vienna, but also features Jørn Utzon's Sydney Opera House, Oscar Niemeyer's National...

It’s a mystery with lots of masks, but no superpowers.”

The comic was created by a diverse group of illustrators, Panel Syndicate, formed by Marcos Martín (author of books like Daredevil. The amazing Spider-man and Doctor Strange: The Oath) and Montsa...


Amou Project. Duplex renovation in Saint Foy lès Lyon.

By Dank Architectes. [Lyon] France.
After the holidays today we presented a project by French study Dank Architectes, the duplex remodelation with garden in a residential district near Lyon to convert a loft apartment. To contrast the minimalist style that characterizes the architecture, have asked the photographer Frenchie Cristogatin some unusual photos. What do you think? Are they realistic photographs that show better the architecture or are distracting?

The main idea behind the "after party" images is to try to make architecture's photos more alive, and make the place look a little "messier" to contrast with the minimalist aspect of the architecture we designed.

In our mind it could be the day after a birthday party or new years eve, but it doesn't really matter. We want people to ask themselves what did happen the night before, just like drunk people...

The Dalliance House, contemporary and old.

[Athens] Greece.

Art, Design
Are holidays and although the Crisis, the excuse of the crisis, deleted, at least momentarily, the obvious, that the countries that have fallen have many interesting people and wanting to make things, as good or better, as in countries where they have not the famous Crisis, we bring a small intervention that celebrates the feast, a matter of times.

The remodelation project on Dalliance House if there is one thing that defines it is the passage of time. Although located in the same place for over 120 years, everything around it has evolved and changed. The house has also undergone major transformations and changes by its inhabitants. Instead of deleting these scars, the creative team paid attention on conservation, in an attempt to remember and relive all life forms and functions that existed within its...
