Planetario Galileo Galilei Gets Inflatable Headphones

Courtesy of SONY

To commemorate the first edition of “Silent Day,” a fabricated holiday by Sony Argentina that celebrated the release of new Sony headphones, the Planetario Galileo Galilei was given headphones in an effort to change the cold and solid appearance of the buildng into a fun, cartoonish personage. Designed by architect Enrique Jan in 1967, some would argue that one should not use these highlights of modernism for lousy advertising. Although, we all know that brands like to use the urban space as a canvas for their messages, so why not do it in a funny way? More images and information after the break.

MA2′s Proposal for Buenos Aires Contemporary Art Museum

© MA2

The [AC-CA]’s recent call for proposals for a new Contemporary Art Museum in the heart of has been seductively synthesized by Houston architect Michael Arellanes II, principal and founder of M A 2 Architectural Design. The nature of the competition called for a building that reflects contemporary design tendencies, whilst simultaneously attending to the specific functions that are required of art museums and considering the impact upon the local milieu. Located within the Puerto Madero district, the museum will occupy a substantial plot of land along the riverbank of the Río de la Plata. While there are no plans for the Contemporary Art Museum to be built, the goal to generate progressive modern design ideas and dialogue surely succeeds with submissions of MA2’s caliber. More details and Arellanes’s description after the break.
