• "It is very difficult to build contemporary architecture in Italy" - Fabio Novembre

    See more design and architecture movies on Dezeen: http://www.dezeen.com/features/movies/ Dezeen and MINI World Tour: in our final movie with Fabio Novembre in Milan, the architect and designer takes us to a new development in the Porta Nuova district of the city and explains why the project is so unusual in Italy. Porta Nuova is an area in Milan to the north of the city centre named after a nineteenth century gate in the old city walls. In 2009, construction started on the Progetto Porta Nuova redevelopment project, which includes a large park and a number of high rise buildings by prominent architects such as César Pelli and Stefano Boeri.

  • Sou Fujimoto will use "only light" to create COS Milan installation

    In this video Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto explains why he chose to use light rather than physical objects to create his Milan design week installation for fashion brand COS. In this movie created by COS, Fujimoto describes the ideas behind his Forest of Light installation, which will be open for six days inside a former theatre in Milan next month. "The concept of this installation is like a forest of light, as the title," says Fujimoto. "It's a forest-like space created by spotlights." Cones of light will shine down from the ceiling, creating illuminated spaces that will respond to the movement of visitors. "The light is reacting to the behaviours of people, so it is not a static forest – always changing," Fujimoto says. "You can interact between the space and your body." The arc...

In this video Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto explains why he chose to use light rather than physical objects to create his Milan design week installation for fashion brand COS. In this movie created by COS, Fujimoto describes the ideas behind his Forest of Light installation, which will be open for six days inside a former theatre in Milan next month. "The concept of this installation is like a forest of light, as the title," says Fujimoto. "It's a forest-like space created by spotlights." Cones of light will shine down from the ceiling, creating illuminated spaces that will respond to the movement of visitors. "The light is reacting to the behaviours of people, so it is not a static forest – always changing," Fujimoto says. "You can interact between the space and your body." The architect – best known for his gridded and latticed architectural structures – chose to use light to create a spatial experience rather than partitions or furniture, due to the short time period that the project would be installed. "The reason why we finally didn't use any physical things – only light – is kind of a representation of a really short moment," says Fujimoto. "It happens there, and then it's gone without anything left." His idea to create a "forest of light" builds on a continuing theme in his architecture projects, such as the 2010 Musashino Art University Museum & Library, where the aim was to create a "forest of books" using shelves rather than trees. "In my previous works, the concept of the forest has been very, very important," he says. "The inspiration of the forest not only comes from the natural forest, but from the artificial forests like Tokyo." "This COS installation is the most pure realisation of the forest concept, only made by lights," Fujimoto adds. COS commissions an architecture or design studio to create an installation in Milan each year. Previous projects include designs by Nendo in 2014 and Snarkitecture last year. For 2016, the brand asked Fujimoto after seeing his cloud-like 2014 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion – where COS sponsored the Park Nights series of talks. "I feel we share the concept and feelings of simplicity," Fujimoto said of his relationship with COS.

#ARCHITECTURE Milan’s Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) has won the International Highrise Award 2014, from the City of Frankfurt. ————————— The International Highrise Award is given by the City of Frankfurt to honour structures that combine exemplary sustainability. Bosco verticale is residential development located close to the Porta Garibaldi train station in the city’s Porta Nuova area. The towers were designed by Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra . The two towers have a height of 119 and 87 metres and are correlated with the policies for reforestation and naturalization of the large urban and metropolitan borders (Metrosbosco) of the city of Milan. Metrobosco and Bosco Verticale are devices for the environmental survival of contemporary European cities. Together they create two modes of building links between nature and city within the territory and within the cities of contemporary Europe. With over 900 trees installed on terraces on the towers, there is over 10,000 square metres of forest. The plants serve to filter dust, pollen and pollution form the environment surrounding the towers, they act as sun shields in the summer months and weather shields in the winter, thus reducing heating and air conditioning costs. The building is equipped with Aeolian and photovoltaic energy systems and the trees will be watered by grey water produced by the tower. The other four finalists of the International Award include: - De Rotterdam, in Rotterdam, which, with a total area of approximately 160 000 sqm claims to be the largest building in Europe. - The One Central Park in Sydney, Australia is a residential/retail development that also strives to unite nature and the urban landscape in harmony. - Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel, previously Hotel Catalonia Plaza Europa, is a skyscraper and hotel in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Catalonia, Spain. - The Sliced Porosity Block, is a building complex in Chengdu, China. The design is shaped to give the surrounding residential neighbourhood enough daylight during the day. The angles of the sun prescribe the shape of the towers.

History of Gothic Cathedral (full documentary) - DOCS CHANNEL Gothic architecture is a style of style that grew throughout the high and late middle ages period. It developed from Romanesque design and was succeeded by Renaissance style. Originating in 12th-century France and lasting into the 16th century, Gothic style was understood during the period as Opus Francigenum ("French your job") with the term Gothic first showing up during the later component of the Renaissance. Its qualities include the pointed arc, the ribbed vault and also the flying buttress. Gothic style is most familiar as the architecture of several of the excellent basilicas, abbeys as well as churches of Europe. It is also the architecture of several castles, palaces, town halls, guild halls, universities and to a less prominent extent, private dwellings, such as dorms and rooms. It is in the fantastic churches and cathedrals and in a variety of civic structures that the Gothic style was expressed most powerfully, its characteristics lending themselves to attract the emotions, whether springing from faith or from civic pride. A great number of ecclesiastical buildings remain from this period, which also the littlest are commonly structures of architectural distinction while many of the larger churches are considered invaluable your jobs of art and are listed with UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. Consequently a research of Gothic design is greatly a research study of basilicas as well as churches. A series of Gothic resurgences began in mid-18th-century England, spread through 19th-century Europe and also proceeded, greatly for clerical as well as university structures, into the 20th century.

Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata and Junya Ishigami, who won a Golden Lion at the last Architecture Biennale in Venice, will be at Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti's gallery in Milan during Fuorisalone. From April 11 through 29 SPAZIO FMG PER L'ARCHITETTURA (Via Bergognone 27 -- corner of Via Savona) hosts Architecture as a piece of nature, an exhibition presented by Luca Molinari and Simona Galateo with Naomi Shibata and Ai Kitazawa presenting the excellence of the new generation in Japan as portrayed by video artist Maris Mezulis. "The event brings together three outstanding international architects to address a theme that is highly relevant in a land afflicted with natural and ecological disasters. Architecture as a piece of Nature offers inspiration for reflection about research into architecture that helps the environment," comment curators Luca Molinari and Simona Galateo. "In the past twenty years Japanese architecture has seen the flowering of a "young generation" represented primarily by Kazuyo Sejima, Jun Aoki and Shigeru Ban. A new generation of architects born after 1970 has recently achieved international recognition, with a different view characterised by a flexible approach and a bold propensity for nature, technology and living spaces. Architecture as a piece of nature focuses on this new scenario, starting with the work of Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata and Junya Ishigami, the principal representatives of the young generation today," comments curator Naomi Shibata. Always aware of urban phenomena in portraying the life cycles of living spaces, director Maris Mezulis has created a video installation that captures the spirit of the new generation in Japanese architecture. Images and interviews with three outstanding young architects of today, who talk about their theories and their inspiration for a new kind of architecture with a focus on three projects: Sou Fujimoto's Final Wooden House, Akihisa Hirata's Apl House and the KAIT - Kanagawa Institute of Technology designed by Junya Ishigami. Sou Fujimoto sees the future of architecture as lying in the archetype of the cave, that is, a primitive, unstructured, functional space which anyone can live in and adapt repeatedly as desired. In the past architecture has been dominated by the concept of the nest, that is, an artificial dwelling intended to isolate us from the natural environment around us. But today cave architecture can encourage new habits and lifestyles that respect the environment. A concrete example of this philosophy is the Final Wooden House in Kumamoto, a cedar wood module which is perfectly integrated with the nature around it and internally structured to recreate new forms of stimulation and actions in living. Just as man is part of a bigger system, architecture must live in harmony with its surroundings; on the basis of this assumption Akihisa Hirata designed the Alp House in Tokyo, a complex of multi-unit residences in harmony with the shape and lie of the land around it. Hirata says that promoting recognition of architecture as part of a higher order can help us achieve a new kind of freedom. Junya Ishigami discusses the plans for the KAIT - Kanagawa Institute of Technology: minimal, light, almost transparent, the building is in perfect harmony with the architect's philosophy that architecture must not be viewed as an artificial structure separating us from our natural environment. Architecture and the works of man now dominate nature. As the boundary between artificial and natural spaces becomes more and more ambiguous, a new environment is taking shape; we need to come up with buildings to suit it. Architecture as a piece of Nature reveals a young, innovative approach, a different perspective which however underlines the common need to respect and protect the land we live on. Architects, companies and their clients need to agree to build according to nature to ensure a sustainable future. Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi Graniti have always been aware of the importance of the environment, as demonstrated by their commitment to ecological innovation in their ecologically active and anti-bacterial material ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ and their promotion of responsible architecture through exhibitions and meetings organised at SPAZIOFMGPERL'ARCHITETTURA.
