Made to Be Moved…

…I like the idea of moving walls in a space…but transporting an entire building is truly the height of flexibility in the choice of preferred location.

Made to be Moved is a minimalist building located in Nordhavnen, Denmark, designed by Arcgency. Worn-out shipping containers are stacked three stories high on a series of minimal site impact pillars. The container is a super optimized product, refined to be cost-effective, strong and durable. It fits international transportations standards and can be shipped and set up anywhere, enabling the architects to practice direct reuse. If a new building component with the same specifications were to be designed, it would be both expensive and time consuming.

Iridescent…

…designed as a living organism in constant interaction with its environment…Butterfly House by Hong Kong based design team, Davidclovers.  The guest house is conceived as a preternatural, brilliantly colored form that oscillates between sheer camouflage and sparkling beacon with the northeastern Pennsylvanian woods.

Boreal Halo…

…The Muzeul National de Arta Contemporana, located in Bucharest, Romania, is the temporary home of the Boreal Halo by French artist Vincent Leroy. Inside the Grand Palace, the Boreal Halo casts a mesmerizing, hypnotic trance over the room. The mass of the object creates an interesting contrast to the stark solidity of the marble floors, striking a tense balance that gives the structure a sense of lightness.

The halo makes visitors aware of the space they occupy…

the ring is in contrast with the fine appointments of the museum room, but remains harmonious in the space…

…as the halo moves, visitors will find themselves inside its space. via

…as the hypnotic halo rotates, visitors will find themselves inside and then outside its space.  Lovely…
