metalocus, SERGIO CIDONCHA.
PIXEL CLOUD is the winning proposal by Marcos Zotes/UNSTABLE for the Reykjavik Winter Lights Festival 2013, organized by Höfuðborgarstofa, Orkusalan and the Iceland Design Centre. The result of the winners get with a scaffolding structure is very interesting, representing a cloud of pixels covered by a fabric that captures light projected over it, located in Austurvöllur, Reykjavik.

The current financial situation has left a permanent landscape of obsolete scaffolding structures scattered across the city; urban scars that remind us of the fragility of our current society. PIXEL CLOUD is an architectural installation that takes advantage of this condition, transforming an ordinary scaffolding structure into a fully immersive environment of light and sound in the heart of Reykjavík.

[VIDEO] By Pentagram
metalocus, PEDRO NAVARRO
The Vignellis’ contributions to design have included everything from book design to furniture design. Whether it's identities for Bloomingdales, United Colors of Benetton, American Airlines, their environmental and product design and one of the most beloved renditions of the New York City Subway map. Today we show to Massimo Vignelli explaining his approach to book design in a video produced for Mohawk's "What Will You Make Today?" campaign. Video design by Michael Bierut/Pentagram.

“The grid is an integral part of book design,” says Massimo Vignelli. “It’s not something that you see. It’s just like underwear: you wear it, but it’s not to be exposed. The grid is the underwear of the book.”

Massimo Vignelli. In 1931 he was born in Milan, he studied architecture in Milan and...

CAMPBELL SPORTS CENTER by STEVEN HOLL

[NYC] USA.
metalocus, PEDRO NAVARRO
Located on the corner of West 218th street and Broadway - the northernmost edge of Manhattan, where Broadway crosses with Tenth Avenue and the elevated tracks of the 1 subway line - the Campbell Sports Center forms a new gateway to the Baker Athletics Complex, the primary athletics facility for Columbia University's outdoor sports program.

The most important aspect at the Campbell Sports Center is how the center interacts with what’s around it: negotiates a tangle of different transitions, from the adjacent elevated subway tracks  in one direction, the soccer field in another, the residential buildings in yet another and Broadway Bridge on the skyline. The project reacts to this whole array of elements and spaces, however it is not...

By James Gulliver Hancock. Ed. Rizzoli
metalocus, PEDRO NAVARRO
"All The Buildings In New York" is a personal project of James Gulliver Hancock. An illustrator from Australia now based between Sydney, and New York.

CALL FOR PAPERS NOW OPEN. The international conference INTER[SECTIONS], to be held at the School of Architecture at the University of Porto, will focus on the relationship between urban space, architecture and the moving image, offering a forum for scholars, practitioners and the public.
