Now that Æ exists, B wants to survive the apocalypse everyone is talking about. She wants to grow old and wrinkled and withered and shrunken so she can stay in the world with Æ. [expand title="more"]She wants to communicate with an adult Æ on the phones of the future. Maybe through some form of telepathy, maybe through small strands of DNA – conversing as mother and daughter will, in the future that might be. Adorable is a haunting, transmundane portrait of a young family told in four parts, in Copenhagen and London. The love between B and Q is tender but worn. When their daughter Æ is born, the everyday lights up in a new way. In its second part, the dead are animated in B’s brain. When B’s father dies, the news is delivered to her by phone and an essayistic, collagist meditation on death and transmission ensues. And then, it’s finally Friday. B and Q descend below the living room floor and wander through a cracked and skittish underworld. In Ida Marie Hede’s porous world, which is our world too, grime, bacteria, and even death are intimately bound up with health and renewal. Fusing the commonplace and the profound, the material and the spiritual, the elegiac and the conceptual, Adorable powerfully insists that it is impossible to tell where death and life begin or end.[/expand]

Coming soon from Taschen, ICONS showcases the historical collaboration between two iconic forces: (fashion) designer Virgil Abloh and Nike Inc.  Two big players who came together to reinvent ten iconic sneaker designs, from the Air Jordan 1 to Air Presto. ‚A minimum of two‘ seemed to be the magic formula when London-based Zak Group came on board to translate the sneaker-recontextualising, meta-cultural design project into book form. Since both Abloh and Zak Group are well-known for their trans-disciplinary, process-oriented work, they made the perfect match: not simply sneaker-heads, but perfectly positioned to transform consumer objects into cultural artifacts. We had a little chat with Zak Kyes about the making of the much-hyped, impossibly green volume. Pre-Order here! More

Architecture can revitalize, spark rural self-confidence, and turn wasteland into a welcoming space—and it can do it at a low cost. This is the mission statement of architect Xu Tiantian, founder and principal of Beijing-based studio Design and Architecture (DnA). [expand title="more"]In 2014, Xu began to work in the remote Songyang County in China’s Zhejiang Province. Her holistic concept does not engage in erasing existing structures but is instead guided by the concept of Architectural Acupuncture, which prefers smaller interventions to extensive redevelopments, and which has gained much recognition as a model for similar regions around the world. For Xu, architecture as a language should address the traditions of Songyang County—each solution is unique; only the small budget is common to all of them. Yet all of them are interrelated and serve the broader goal of mutual enhancement. The Songyang Story introduces Xu’s concept of Architectural Acupuncture and discusses the influence of architecture on cultural self-understanding and economic renewal in twenty-first-century rural China. Richly illustrated, it features some twenty new buildings and conversions of existing structures with diverse functions. These interventions work in the local context and greatly affect Songyang County’s social fabric, housing, culture, industry, agriculture, landscape conservation, and tourism. Published alongside the illustrations are essays by international economists, sociologists, and curators as well as by the secretary of the Songyang County Party Committee, examining the social, political, and economic implications of sustainable planning and collective action in the Chinese province.[/expand]

In diesem Kompendium werden 55 wegweisende Bauwerke der architektonische Moderne, erbaut im Zeitraum von 1950 bis heute, vorgestellt und analysiert.[expand title="more"]Die Entwurfsansätze und Gestaltungsprinzipien, welche den Bauten zugrunde liegen, sind jeweils in einer Abfolge von Handzeichnungen aufgeschlüsselt. Ausgehend von Standort und Kontext des Gebäudes beziehen sich die Illustrationen auf die spezifischen Elemente, die in ihrem Zusammenspiel das meisterhafte Bauwerk prägen: Volumen und Baukörper; das natürliche Licht als Entwurfsgröße; die Ordnung von Raumprogramm und Erschliessungsfläche; das Verhältnis von Wand und Öffnung; die Gliederung des Raumes oder die Ausbildung von Details. Auf diese anschauliche Weise werden Bauten von Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Peter Zumthor, Steven Holl, Snøhetta oder MAD Architects in ihre Einzelaspekte aufgegliedert, so dass die zugrunde liegende DNA des Gebäudeentwurfes ersichtlich und in kurzen Erläuterungstexten verständlich dargelegt wird. Das Buch bietet eine einzigartige Grundlage für das Verstehen zeitgenössischer Architektur und die Kenntnis und Aneignung der Entwurfsprinzipien, die heutigen bedeutenden Bauwerken zugrunde liegen - für Studenten, Architekten und alle Architektur-Interessierten gleichermaßen.[/expand]

Keen for more Unseen projects? This way. I went to a fair here in Tokyo last year, robotics automation and food. 95% no photos allowed. My name is Christoffer Rudquist I’m a photographer. [expand title="more"]I come from a small town in the west of Sweden. Through DNA test I’ve found out that I’m 66% Swedish 10% British, and the rest is a mix of Norwegian and broader European. This result became even more interesting since it matched with the findings of a 35 years genealogy project made by a distant relative, mapping our family all the way back to 920AD, starting with a man called Folke the Fat. The same DNA test also concluded my metabolism was 10% slower than average. After here and there, my wife and I made London our hometown for many years, we now live in Tokyo with a Mini Schnauzer named Olly, bunch of basil, a lemon tree, and an English Rose. I do miss a good pub lunch, and the quintessential British banter. Over the years I’ve worked with and met some amazing people that has given me the opportunity to create images I couldn’t imagine possible when I started out, when that happens one does feel a bit like Indiana Jones.
