Cool Chic Style Fashion Utopia Arkitekter Designs Apartment Block with Rooftop Park for Stockholm The Södermalm district of Stockholm will be receiving a unique new addition to its collection of residential housing. Utopia Arkitekter has proposed a redevelopment plan along Hornsbruksgatan that will include three apartment buildings and a new metro station. In total, the plan will create 29 units: twelve apartments and seventeen town houses. Rising two to three stories above the street, the connected roofs of each of these buildings will act as an extension to the nearby Högalid Park. The upper floors of the new buildings will be given over to residency, while most of the ground floor will be devoted to commercial use. The facades of the apartment buildings are terraced and offset to create dynamic appearance, and to allow for balconies and forecourts in the town houses. The new metro station, situated between these buildings, will be designed by Tham Videgård Arkitekter.

- LifeEdited Outsider Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright at the Museum of Modern Art A Taliesen fellow in Chandler, Ariz., works on a 1935 model of Wright’s Broadacre City development scheme, which sought to bring urban density to suburbia. Credit: Courtesy the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives (The Museum of Modern Art | Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library at Columbia University, New York) “My way has been too long and too lonely,” Frank Lloyd Wright telegraphed Philip Johnson shortly before the 1932 opening of the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) epochal International Style exhibit, in an unsuccessful attempt to withdraw from the show, “to make a belated bow to my people as a modern architect … ” Wright’s way was certainly long. Aerial perspective of St. And Wright’s way was certainly lonely. A 1929 section and perspective cutaway of a duplex apartment from the St. Wright’s work, despite his telegrammed demurral, was ultimately featured in MoMA’s 1932 show—albeit with visible ambivalence in both architect and curator.

Public – fuseproject In the new landscape of work, technology enables us to work anywhere and interact virtually. Despite this, people continue to work out of the office, because they see the value of face-to-face interaction. Collaboration is a key factor to success, and yet office furniture has not evolved to harness the potential of these interactions. That’s what inspired PUBLIC Office Landscape – our new collection for Herman Miller. The way we work has changed. We conducted primary research with a broad range of organizations to better understand what workers and leaders are seeking in their office environment. The resulting strategic framework provided clear, actionable guidance for design, and a unique and differentiated philosophy that makes PUBLIC distinct in the office furniture landscape. We believe collaboration isn’t exclusive to conference rooms or desks; it happens everywhere.

Asymmetric House in Tourimachi slots between two buildings Japanese studios SNARK and OUVI have slotted a six-metre-wide house with a lopsided roof between two buildings on the edge of a cemetery (+ slideshow). Located in Takasaki, a city in Japan's Gunma Prefecture, the three-storey House in Tourimachi was designed by SNARK and OUVI to provide a home for two generations of one family. The restricted nature of the plot – measuring six metres long and 13 metres wide, and with three-storey buildings on either side – prompted the architects to integrate ceiling voids, set backs and a large skylight to maximise daylight in the house. "The clients wanted a well-lit and ventilated double house duplex to share with their parents," said the architects, who have previously completed a bronze-coloured residence and a zigzagging housing development. "The main design of this architecture is the roof wrapping up the whole house, embodying the cohabitation of two generations, and working as a shade at the same time," added the team. Project credits:
