The project begins with an internal contest at the own study. From that contest appears several ideas for finishing with an final simply design, whose diagrams we recommend you to see it. The design is embodied in two wooden boxes separated by a central void which is characterized by the presence of a concrete walkway hung from the ceiling. The program is organized to create a route by which visitors are aware of the area of work of the study.

Despite having built three of the most important buildings in postwar West Berlin architecture - Charlottenburg Sports Hall, Circulation Tank of the Hydraulics Laboratory near Tiergarten station and a tower for the German Association of Lifeguards - Ludwig Leo's work is now largely forgotten since his withdrawal from architectural discourse after the 70s. This month, the gallery die raum in Berlin - in collaboration with BARarchitekten and Gregor Harbusch - diplays drawings, models, photographs and a film from four of his projects. If you are in Berlin, you can't miss it!

Citizens of No Place. An Architectural Graphic Novel.

Book. Princeton Architectural Press • New York. By Jimenez Lai.
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA, LAURA CANTO
Citizens of No Place published by Princeton Architectural Press, is a collection of short stories on architecture and urbanism, graphically represented using manga-style storyboards. Jimenez Lai, its author speaks about the conflation of representation, design, theory and storytelling by working through comics and translating the alternate worlds into physical installations.

Fiction is used as a strategy to unpack thoughts about architecture. Modeled as a proto-manifesto, it is a candid chronicle of a highly critical thought process in the tradition of paper architecture (especially that of architect John Hejduk and Bernard Tschumi's Manhattan Transcript). The short stories explore many architectural problems through the unique language of the graphic novel, helping usher the next generation of architectural theory and criticism....

"Prelude" documents from a contemporary point of view this world through costume, scenarios, faces, dancers, masters and architecture. The whites and blacks, the contrast and darkness express themselves the Russian context.

The starting point of this project is a quest within the representation of dance and its origins inside the Russian Ballet. Therefore, I moved to the heart of classsical theater: the Mikhailovsky Theater in Saint Petersburg. The Mikhailovsky ballet is formed by a one hundred percent Russian body. Dancers, masters, artisans, everyone inside the theater is Russian....
