Looking back at some cool old photos. This photo was taken in More London Place in 2011 during my internship for Bernard Stilwell Architects.
I don’t normally post other people’s stuff, but I’ve just watched this video showing the production of the Hiroshima Chair by Maruni Wood Industry which I found a really good example of good design together with a very intelligent production procedure and we shall not forget the beautifully edited video.
Throughout the last couple of months I have been very interested in industrial design and even got a commission to design three furniture pieces for a room. I now came to the conclusion that the small scale objects are as complex to design as a house or a building.
Inside Out Alfacinha is ON!
So happy for this year’s Priztker. Shigeru Ban. I have always been a fan of him but above all, I have been developing a big interest in Japanese architecture since I started my academic education. Simplicity, sublimity and serenity.
Hope to visit Japan in a very close future.
Who deserves it: either Mr. John Pawson, David Chipperfield or Alberto Campo Baeza. However today’s architecture is worried with the wow factor so probably Steven Holl will win or other “big” office.
