San Sebastian Subway Entrance / Snøhetta

The building of the new metro in San Sebastian Donastia will connect the people and the different areas of the city in a new way. It will set a new standard for the future of the town and its way forward. It will offer donastiarras and visitors a new means of public transpiration, and be a part of the future pulse of San Sebastian Donastia. The entrance design by Snøhetta is based on a continuous movement from underground level to over ground, and vice versa. The design element goes from being a ceiling structure underground to create a roof structure over the stairs and up over ground. The structure describes the transition between the two states and connects the city life with the metro world. More images and architects’ description after the break.

HIGHRISE – One Millionth Tower Documentary

One Millionth Tower explores the future of high-rise residential housing and a staple of residential developments over the past several decades.  With over one billion people currently residing in these buildings, which are often falling apart, One Millionth Tower is a documentary that brings together highrise residents and architects to repair these vertical neighborhoods. This documentary takes the skills of animators and programmers to reconstruct their sketches in 3-dimensional form, creating an open-source, interactive 3-D virtual environment that supports participation and collaboration within urban design.

Video: Color Shadows / Eduardo Castillo, by Cristobal Palma

For the last 12 years, the MoMA and the P.S.1 have invited a group of emerging architects to compete for the opportunity to design and construct a summer installation within MoMA PS1’s courtyard as part of their Young Architects Program (you can check the 2012 short list here).

As of last year, the program started an international version in two countries: Chile (Color Shadows, at the Matucana 100 Cultural Center – YAP_CONSTRUCTO) and Italy (wHATAMI, at the MAXXI museum in Rome, YAP_MAXXI).

The winning project of the Chilean version, designed by Eduardo Castillo, was open during the 2010 summer (Jan-Feb, southern hemisphere), hosting a series of cultural events and music sessions, just like the P.S.1 in Queens.

The project, Color Shadows, consists of a series of roofs structured from wooden posts that, together with fabric, created a topographic relief, more than covering the patio, spatially contained it. This dynamic structure filters the light and is constantly changing during the day. This dynamic condition can be seen thanks to this by architectural photographer Cristobal Palma.

Cristobal Palma (1974, Oxford, UK): Based in Santiago, Chile, Cristobal’s work spans architecture, urban and documentary photography. He studied at London’s Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA), and his work has been published in numerous titles internationally, with recent commissions by: The Times, Monocle, Wallpaper, Domus, Dwell and Architectural Digest. He lives in Santiago, Chile, and works both with architects in Chile and abroad.

 Just in time for the holidays, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar will return to a warehouse the 15th through 17th of December.  The Bazaar will re-imagine the sights, sounds and smells of traditional markets and will be filled with independent vendors selling artwork, accessories, and furniture, along with great music and food. Our friends from Danish firm JDS will be designing the master plan for the Bazaar and different furniture pieces after the firm captured the attention of the Bazaar organizers with their innovative ski jump in Norway.
