Philharmonic Hall in Szczecin | Memory in glass

Neo-gothic ornaments and Classicist volumes melt together, creating an outstanding object shaped by its context. Perfectly integrated in the city, the Philharmonic hall is also able to emerge as a new addition.


Superkilen, Copenhagen | TOPOTEK + BIG + SUPERFLEX

An architectural collage of cultural identity. Superkilen is a half a mile long urban space wedging through Nørrebro, one of the most ethnically diverse and socially challenged neighborhoods in Copenhagen: the architectural competition asked for an urban park to address the underlying social issues of Nørrebro.

Antinori Winery by Archea Associati | Design by subtraction

Cantina Antinori hides its gigantic footprint in the land and melts its curves with the surroundings. Visitors are welcomed, then captured, by this magic building wrapped in soil.


Richard Serra | The space between art, site and viewer.

Not only a sculptor, Richard Serra is an eclectical artist. His out of reach ability to link site, art and viewer makes him one of the most recognized artist of our time.


WHITE CUBE | An idea of gallery space

The “White Cube”. Is it some sort of white fetish or what?
Here’s why and how most art galleries are plain white.
Today, we are all familiar with the “white cube”. If you’ve ever been into a contemporary art museum, you’ve definitely experienced it: plain white walls, polished floors, basic furniture, artworks evenly lit from above (with the quiet help of artificial lighting).

This aesthetic, first experimented in the United States in the 50s, has come to define our idea of space in an art gallery. Its concept focuses on the intense relationship between space and visitor.
