Sandworm by Marco Casagrande.

[Wenduine] Belgium.
metalocus, ALEX DURO.
Halfway between architecture and art appears this installation about 45 meters long whose sense of respect for the environment is staggering. Described by its author as "weak architecture", it turns into a strong one because of its integration in a natural environment so emphatic. Also we recommend you see the drawings made by hand by the architect, more than adequate for this sort of project.

The project is the result of the work, during four weeks, by the Marco Casagrande's team. It is defined by the visitors as a "willow cathedral". Its 45 meters long and 10 meters wide generate 320 m² of inner space. This inner space is designed between light and shadow thanks to its construction material.

Inside the sandworm you are greeted by a...

[VIDEO] Museu da Electricidade [Lisbon] Portugal. 12/09 - 15/12/2013.
metalocus, ROBERTO ALIA
Every one has ever think of the city of the future. For this group of artists, biologists, architects and writers this try goes beyond the attempt, and becomes the content of this exhibition: images of cities dominated by technology in a distopic future.

Future Perfect is a fictional, future city. A think tank of scientists, technologists, designers, artists and science fiction authors have collectively developed this imaginary place, the landscapes that surround it and the stories it contains. The exhibition is a stage set for a collection of fictions, emerging infrastructures and design experiments that can be inhabited as large-scale districts of the future city....

[LON], UK.
metalocus, ALEX DURO.
Taking advantage of the Rogers House is on sold for the first time, through The Modern House, since it has built in 1968, we want to remember a very good example of the british architecture of the last century. Besides, if you have something more than three millons pounds, you can purchase this masterpiece of the 20th century architecture.

We are talking about one of the first projects of Richard Rogers, whose clients were his own parents and for who he designed this house which he describes as a transparent tube with solid boundary walls.

For own Richard Rogers it is the "the most successful small project I have been involved in".
