An Installation by David Byrne Creative Time presents Playing the Building, a 9,000-square-foot, interactive, site-specific installation by renowned artist David Byrne. The artist transforms the interior of the landmark Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan into a massive sound sculpture that all visitors are invited to sit and “play.” The project consists of a retrofitted antique organ, placed in the center of the building's cavernous second-floor gallery, that controls a series of devices attached to its structural features—metal beams, plumbing, electrical conduits, and heating and water pipes. These machines vibrate, strike, and blow across the building’s elements, triggering unique harmonics and producing finely tuned sounds. Click here to read an interview between David Byrne and Anne Pasternak Playing the Building was originally comissioned in 2005 by Färgfabriken, Stockholm.

Not too long ago, we used to wait for publishing companies to compile work done in previous years into a book format where we felt compelled to purchase in order to learn, educate and strengthen our creative spectrum of ideas.

Although the manufacturing folows certain paper paterns, the completed shades develop individuality through own edges, kinks and creases. Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec Design A new Museum called MUDAM (Museum of Modern Art- Grand Duc Jean, Luxembourg) opened in July 2006 in a building designed by Architect I.M Pei, an unfurling of mineral facades punctuated by slanted glass sides. Under one of these high glass roofs and in an adjacent room are located the restaurant and the shop of the Museum, which director Marie-Claude Beaud asked Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to design. The main challenge under the glass roof was to counteract a strong light both direct and reverberated by the floor. Then, the idea was to create a congenial atmosphere in a monumental space by offering sheltered places favoring relaxation and meals.
