ESTUDIO AISENSON + SMF shared with us their first prize winning proposal for the “National Contest of The Apple of the Lights and his Environment.” The construction of a set edilicio in the Apple of the Lights is one of the historical sites of major importance in Buenos Aires. They believe that a look that shoud leave a contemporary stamp in the Apple of the Lights, which has been consolidated across diverse centuries of our history, cannot but to be based in recognizing the preexistences, the patrimonial value of the set and each of his parts and in formalizing the simultaneous need to join to the set and to be outlined as intervention.

Originally called the Dongnam Distribution Center (DDC), the recently renamed Garden 5 Tool complex is a mega-shopping center in Seoul, South Korea. The structure was designed by DeStefano Partners of Chicago, Illinois in conjunction with Samoo Architects & Engineers as the associate architect.
The aim of this project, designed by DATA Architects, goes beyond a simple sport aesthetic, in wanting a full architectural experience. The two terms can not be separated in their minds. It is as much about the definition and sequencing of internal spaces on the transition between outside and inside. They are interested in all the rigor of the building as a skillful play of proportions in the light. More images and architects’ description after the break.
Melbourne’s Prahran neighborhood will soon be home to a five-story apartment block with David Bowie’s alter ego Ziggy Stardust emblazoned across the façade. The image will span across four of the levels on the new $10 million Tatu building. Utilizing a perforated metal screen system, the eyes and lips of the facial image will be adjustable when residents shift the screens on their balconies.
Originally rejected by the Stonnington Council, it was overturned by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. While some local residents are speculative of its aesthetics, the bold move made by developer Donald Musto is sure to garner attention. Whether you are a fan of Bowie or not, the full façade mural is sure to make a mark on Melbourne – even if it does come across as kitschy.
