JUXTAPOSING FORM WITH COLOUR!!

PROJECT : YANDEX ST PETERS BURG OFFICE-4, RUSSIA

ARCHITECTS : ZA BOR ARCHITECTS, MOSCOW, RUSSIA

how often do we see office with colors splashing like a on a canvas, like walls painted themselves of what they wanted to be, how they wanted to be, just like somebody once quoted

“Even a brick aspires to be something”

an architectural firm in Moscow did justice to the space, breaking the monotony and making office a interactive space rather than a mundane routine by its artful design. this office exemplifies whats space need to be a alive.

its deliberate attempts to obliquely unite 3D & 2D is commendable. judging by quality of finishes, the impeccable design work looks pretty industrious, with pure construction form of ceilings, the office doesn’t lack behind in meeting the requirements of an office. overall its a applaud-able attempt by the architects who tried to think outside the box with their foundations being inside the box.

the poor funny architect!!

Every architect already knows this. This is time all laymen know, what’s the possible difference.

1.Regular girlfriend likes good food, good music, good ambiance. Architect likes good food, good music, good ambiance, good interiors, good lighting, good finishes, good material.

Being grateful 

Be greatfull today tomorrow may never come.

nikhitamalhotra

Belonging to a world..where your decisions are not your own

Belonging to a world..where smiles are way too much to ask for

When life doesn’t give you much choices..it’s always easier to crib for the smaller things..difficult to raise your hand for the bigger ones

If i ever get a chance to decide the present scenario..my only wish will be to stick to it..with much love and enthusiasm

Because..you may never know…and times will change..and you may never get a chance to breathe and relax and be grateful

Because hurdles are not what you call for

They will arise in the times when you least expect them to

Just be here

Take a moment

And smile

made of polished aluminum of high quality, this unprecedented product design is next gen. Demeaning all the coffee makes, Its not only docile in nature and kitchen amiable but also will increase the beauty of kitchen. its saves hell lot of energy as only heat energy is required to heat up the water to desired level. the pressure required to make coffee is achieved by lowering the lever arms. the lever arms traps air and forces water through the ground of coffee at a high pressure. then the hot water is poured into the filter and coffee is made. this minimal design is what you need on your cottage/ house/ apartment and vacations

TRANSFORMABLE DESIGN IS JUST WHAT WE NEED!!

NewBauhaus_by_penda_(GIF_Small)
Penda’s proposal for the New Bauhaus Museum competition features a transformable design that serves as an “extension of the city on one hand and as a connector to the surrounding park on the other.” The design features two rotating platforms that can open to connect the museum to the sculpture park during the day and close at night. Although not selected as the winning design, Penda’s “Flexible Bauhaus” proposal was one of the finalists selected to participate in the second stage of the competition.

Penda Proposes a Transformable Design for the New Bauhaus Museum

Penda’s proposal features a transformable design that serves as an “extension of the city on one hand and as a connector to the surrounding park on the other.” The design features two rotating platforms that can open to connect the museum to the sculpture park during the day and close at night. Although not selected as the winning design, Penda’s “Flexible Bauhaus” proposal was one of the finalists selected to participate in the second stage of the competition. Read more about their proposal after the break.
From the architects: Art and Technology: A New Unity
Resting on the description of Bauhaus by Walter Gropius: “Only perfect harmony in the technical function and in the proportions of form can produce beauty”, our design for the New Bauhaus Museum is a fusion of clear geometry and technological elements that offer flexibility and integration to Dessau’s City Centre. Life in a city is multiple, ambiguous and in constant change. Our aim was to create a Museum that connects and interacts with those multiple settings of daily life in Dessau in a very direct and responsive way. Due to its ability to transform itself, the museum can react to various needs within the City Park and offers the possibility to become a connecting hub, which shapes the community around it and links its visitors to the vision of the Bauhaus era.

Bauhaus, its Vitality and its Spirit
The Bauhaus was an era of innovation and technical achievements, a new clarity in architecture, design and art. The Bauhaus is not about form. It is about the performance of form. Not about shape, but about the logic of shape. Not about aesthetics, but how to adapt aesthetics to a daily use.

Bauhaus was a shared spirit connecting art and life. Inspired by this spirit, we see the new Bauhaus Museum as a institution, which is fully integrated into the life of the citizen and its visitors of Dessau. We see it as an Institution, that connects and interacts with its surrounding. An institution, that adapts to the vivid nature of the City Park in a supporting way and as an dynamic platform hosting different sorts of events for its community.
NewBauhaus_by_penda_Renderings_(2)

The City, the Park and the Museum
With the Restoration of Dessau’s City Centre, the Museum site borders frequented and vivid areas of Dessau. Situated within the Park, the museum offers a urban centre point of important pathways and view axis. Due to its flexible transformation, our Proposal reacts to the frequencies of the surrounding in a very natural way. When the 2 platforms rotate, the building opens up and invites people into the park and the museum. Therefore the building aims to be an entrance sculpture to the park. At night and at times the area is not heavily frequented, by closing its platforms, the museum naturally minimises the dark and deserted areas of the Park.

Our goal is to create a museum, which acts as an extension of the city on one hand and as a connector to the surrounding park on the other. The museum connects with its monolithic building envelope and height to the surrounding city blocks of Dessau and with its materiality to the neighbouring vegetation of the park, respecting its specific natural conditions within the city. Its height adapts to the neighbouring building blocks to blend in with the urban fabric. With its alternating appearance and by adapting to events and happenings in the Park, the Museum has the capability to become a new source of inspiration for the City of Dessau.
NewBauhaus_by_penda_Renderings_(10b)_copy
The Park, its Seasons and the Museum
We see the new Bauhaus Museum as an addition to the qualities of the City Park. Therefore the design needs to be able to adapt to the park and react to the varying occupancy loads during different seasons throughout the year.

During the warmer months of the year, the Museum has to be an integrated element to the vitality on the Park. Visitors and Citizens of Dessau are streaming to the park, lying in the sun, going for a run, playing with kids or watching a concert. In our opinion, the New Bauhaus Museum needs to provide the possibility to become a connecting element with daily life in the Park.
NewBauhaus_by_penda_Renderings_(3)

During the winter months, a Park is usually an unoccupied island within the City Centre, disconnected with its surrounding. During those months, the Museum serves as an visible icon to attract visitors to its exhibitions and events and, at the same time, shrinking the mostly deserted landscape of the park.
The Museum, its Events and Exhibitions
NewBauhaus_by_penda_Renderings_(11)
The museum sits as a slender, horizontal structure in the park and combines all needed areas in one compact building envelope, providing a small footprint within the park. By nature, a museum is composed of two areas of different sentiment: The public areas, which should invite visitors, which is open and transparent to the outside and the exhibition spaces, an introvert entity, which is isolated from natural daylight to protect the artwork.
NewBauhaus_by_penda_Renderings_(4)

All public areas, featuring the lobbies, event spaces, a museum store and the cafe are situated on the lower levels of the museum in 2 cuboids with an rectangular footprint of 9×36 Meters and 7 m height. Each entity sits on a circular platform rotating around a stable core in its axis, where Staircases, Elevators and the Buildings Hardware like cables and (flexible) pipes are located. The 2 flexible entities are able to rotate around the cores to interact with the public life in the park and to adapt to the needs and the demands of its environment. A museum which is not defined by its form, but by its performance.

Gautam buddha, was no ordinary man. He was a perfect emxempler of knowledge n intelligence. His teachings favoured no religion and are still being followed after centuries. His entralling ways charmed million and his growth became meterioc. Every individual on this planet should learn a thing or two from him, here are 10 points to ponder upon.

  2. All what we are is a result of what we have thought. Mind is everything.
  3. To conquer oneself is greater task than conquering others.
  4. What we think, we become.
  5. Your work is to discover your work and with all you heart give yourself to it
  6. The secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one.
  7. You cannot travel the path, until you have become the path itself.
  8. The only failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows
  9. You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger

YES, THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL AFTERLIFE(BIO-URNS)

Death- a thought that crosses our mind now and then, that inevitable truth which everyone fears. i cant say whats there an afrerlife but whatever it is, its beautiful.

And i can say that with such boldness is cause of this initiative taken by this website, which converts urns(ashes of dead) into trees.

Imagine a cemetry like this

the building has been collecting feathers of criticism for its hat of shame since its completion. Its promises to create a eco friendly terrace rather are falling as the terrace gives out the vibe of a airport terminal.

With another failed building there is no denying that london is getting reputation of brassy and trashy, where private greed comes before public gains.


SUSTAINABLE LIVING IN WYOMING!!

Sustainable living in wyoming with enthralling beauty situated in laps of nature surrounding by lush green woods, a perfect example of comntemparary art.

Relugent fenestration s lets the nature inside of the space. The architecture doesn’t alienate the space from its surroundings rather creates a sheen symphony collectively.
