Kindergarten Bressol in Vilanova del Vallés.

By David Sebastian + Gerard Puig Arquitectes. [Vilanova del Vallés, BCN] Spain.
metalocus, SERGIO CIDONCHA.
David Sebastian and Gerard Puig designed a kindergarten attending numerous and stringent limitations. The proposal that wins the competition is a connection between the existing and new building based on macla to a greater or a lesser extent depending on the program, to get a unit that can function independently with different accesses. It is important to emphasize that the architects face to many limitations and requirements when they start a project, this is a clear example.

Memory of project.

We were asked to build a kindergarten adapting the ground floor of an old farmhouse. On the first floor a multi-purpose hall was also required with a separate entrance.

Strømbu Rest Area.

By Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk [Rondane]. Norway.
metalocus, ALEX DURO
Between Enden and Folldal, in the road for hikers of the Rondane Mountains, National Park Rondane, we can find a rest area which it is sometimes a meeting point, a starting point for routes or, as its program attempts, a rest area for hikers and nature lovers.

The project appears as a dialogue between the building and the nature. Two spaces in contact which represent two different experiences. An isolated place for relax where hikers can contemplate the wonderfull landscape of Norway.

Raphaël Vicenzi a.k.a. Mydeadpony.

•••As a selection of his works•••
metalocus, LAURA CANTO, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
The stunning works of this artist, with a puzzling pseudonym MyPonyDead- a Belgian with a head full with shapes, colors and expressions, show what is possible to do by combining digital techniques, drawing skills and a huge inspiration. Take a glimpse to the random splashes of watercolor, appealing typography and now be assured that he has learnt all by himself, surprising, isn't it?

His style is very personal and are influenced by fashion illustration, commercial design and street art. He is exploring his unconscious depths without knowing it at times. To find inspiration and enrich his mind Raphaël is reading books, watching movies and looking at inspirational art.

Usually, but not always, he has the idea written down, a few words or a phrase which give him direction for the whole illustration – it...

Book a stay at the legendary Campus. If you’re on a budget, eager to impress on Instagram and looking to book a holiday after to sleep in the Tourette Le Corbusier, this is your new stop. The building still in the renovation process, Alfred Arndt, Josef and Anni Albers and Franz Ehrlich rooms are ready to rent, each kitted out with furniture, objects or artwork from each, all researched from original photographs.
