…”Making the invisible tangible” is the guiding principle of London based design practice, Shiro Studio. Research across many disciplines feed the studio’s ethos…anatomy, aeronautics, meteorology, botany, sculpture and digital fabrication.
“Shiro means ‘white’ in Japanese, but here it implies a philosophical translation where white is perceived as the purest creative approach. Shiro is the infinitesimal fraction of time before an idea is represented on a blank piece of white paper. It is here, in this tension between inception and the beginning of the design process, that the purity and integrity of creativity is found.”

…Let’s meet this evening at Chateau Chevel Blanc Winery in France by Christian de Portzamparc. Wine making is elevated to a new level…the flowing design of the building resembles the infinity sign. The winery incorporates traditional french architectural principals with new wave charm and modern elegance.

…ha!..this fab action shoot by new york photography, Yulia Gorbachenko, reminded me of my running partner who was assigned the bib number 911…she was teased unmercifully throughout the race…I told her to nevermind the teasing, she simply was ‘on fire.’
French architect, Emmanuelle Moureaux, has been living in Japan since 1966. Inspired by traditional Japanese sliding screens, Emmanuelle has created the concept of ‘Shikiri,’ which literally means ‘dividing (creating) space with colors’ in English. I find her work to be light and minimal with a dash of whimsy…always inspiring and memorable….
