Nendo Escher exhibition opens at Melbourne's National Gallery of Victoria. The impossible geometries of Dutch graphic artist MC Escher are explored by Oki Sato's studio Nendo in an exhibition open at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
The exhibition, called Between Two Worlds, includes 157 prints and drawings by Escher, made between 1916 and 1969, taken from the largest collection of the artist's work, at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. The Japanese studio has designed an immersive monochrome design for the exhibition that draws on the artist's work by playing with themes of geometry and space. The studio took the simple shape of a house as the basis of its designs for the project, adapting the form into different dimensions and scales. The house was chosen as it is a symbol that represents space. The house motif has practical and conceptual applications, with variations on the shape forming seating, providing a context for display and directing visitors. In the next room black metal pipes holding Escher works appear to float in space. Samsung creates Resonance installation at Milan design week 2019.

Spaceworkers commemorates Portuguese philosopher with installation. Architecture studio Spaceworkers has created an arched exhibition space in an old Portuguese church, to celebrate the life and legacy of philosopher and scholar Damião de Gois.
Spaceworkers was commissioned by the Municipality of Alenquer to create the mini museum, as a permanent fixture inside a restored church in Alenquer, central Portugal. The venue was chosen because of its historical relationship with De Gois, who was baptised and later buried at the church in the 16th century. "Intervening in an existing building is in itself a good challenge. But when we have added centuries of history, the challenge is even greater," said the studio, which is led by architects Henrique Marques and Rui Dinis. Jac Studios creates delicate glass exhibition in Tadao Ando's Genius Loci.

AMO create "open-ended" display system for Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum. OMA's research and design studio AMO has created a display system made up of 43 slim free-standing steel walls for the permanent collection of Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum.
Called Stedelijk Base, the light and flexible display system features freestanding walls made from 15-millimetre-thick steel plates developed by Tata steel in the Netherlands. The laser-cut pieces are then coupled together to create solid and stable triangular structures. Lina Bo Bardi’s "radical" glass easels revived for exhibition.

Carmody Groarke builds cave-like space for Designs of the Year nominees. For this year's Designs of the Year exhibition, London architecture studio Carmody Groarke has created a cave-like interior made from sprayed paper pulp.
Dezeen is media partner for the Beazley Designs of the Year awards programme and exhibition, which officially opens to the public today. Set on the basement level of the Design Museum in Kensington, the exhibition is organised into themed sections, displaying each of the 62 nominations. London firm Carmody Groarke has created grotto-like spaces to frame each section, offering a stark contrast to the simple plinths and units of last year's exhibition. The monolithic structure is formed of a timber frame that has been sprayed with a recycled paper pulp material named Soundcel, usually used in construction to provide insulation. Nominated projects, such as a flag for refugees and IKEA's snap-together furniture, are either mounted upon the structure or placed within niches. Photography is by Luke Hayes.
