Originally made for the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, this installation covered two buildings in holographic panels that shifted color once lasers were reflected off it, creating a dazzling array of invisible light pyrotechnics. Link here.

J.Mayer H. Architects have designed the OLS House near Stuttgart, Germany. ‘The new, 4-person family home is divided into an elevated ground floor with entrance area, utility room and spa, and a second floor with an open, flowing floor plan containing the living, dining and kitchen areas. Full-height glazing provides a free view of the valley and terrace looking over the garden area. Upstairs are the sleeping areas, dressing rooms and bathrooms. The central design element is a sculptural staircase that connects all three levels. The house was built as a reinforced concrete construction. The facade consists of one heat-insulating compound system and an aluminum and glass facade. Slats and anti-glare sheeting provide integrated sun protection, protecting it against heat. All of the lightweight partition walls inside are made of drywall. The floor is a seamless layer of screed. The roof with the deep, recessed balcony was built with pre-weathered zinc plate cladding and is fitted with solar panels.’ Link here.

The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, located at the northern edge of the Michigan State University campus, is influenced by a set of movement paths that traverse and border the site. The vitality of street life on the northern side of Grand River Avenue and the historic heart of the university campus at the south side generate a network of paths and visual connections; some are part of the existing footpath layout, others create shortcuts between the city and the campus side of Grand River Avenue. Architects: Zaha Hadid Architects

The ‘Progrés Raval’ Health Centre was built in a degraded environment in Badalona on the site of an old glass factory and with the aim, as well as providing health coverage, of enlivening the commercial and social activity of the district. The building was integrated into a new square, opening up a public space that did not exist before. The façade is protected by a ceramic screen providing the building with thermal insulation in order to make it more energy efficient. An outstanding feature is the pillar on the left side of the building, which is the only pillar supporting it on this side. Link here.

” I do not consider myself an architect, but rather an artist and inventor who often uses architecture as an art form. The artifacts that evolve from my work are not as important as their broader implications. One of my primary interests, as a conceptual designer, is to explore ways in which the physical built environment can be augmented, and in some cases replaced by information technologies, such as virtual reality. Other work explores ways in which the physical built environment can be easily changed, in time, relative to changing needs. Some of these designs suggest ways in which large structures can be physically altered in real time through an interactive Internet interface. Most of my work investigates ways to integrate alternative energy gathering and storage systems into the built environment, so they can be powered partly or entirely independent of the conventional utility grid. In every case, the esthetics that evolve from all of my work comes from the invention of new ways in which these designs function.” – Michael Jantzen
