Called See the World, and See the Savings, the series consisted of three hand-crafted currency collages that each had a traveler using his or her mobile phone, whether it was to snap a picture of an iconic landmark or take a fun selfie.

Inhabited sculpture This article was originally published in Domus 966 / February 2013 Recently, Belgian postwar modernism has repeatedly been explored on an international scale. It was the subject of several articles published in specialised journals, and the public has been exposed through exhibitions and monographs to the work of Belgian architects who were previously unknown outside their national borders. Although this country and its people are rarely brought up in the context of architecture or design, the 1950s and '60s represent the extraordinary growth of applied art in Belgium. At that time, design and architecture found widespread application across the entire society, and architects found great potential to experiment with radical modernist ideals in the mass production of housing developments and villa neighbourhoods. Meanwhile, many other artists dedicated their entire careers to the pursuit of a clean form of modernism, used to create unexpected architectural spaces.

Leprosy in the Middle Ages – A Tale of Tragedy and Prejudice - Medieval Archives Leprosy has always been a subject of interest among scientists, since there is and was a lot of controversy surrounding it. According to traditional theories, during the Middle Ages, when the disease was blooming, people afflicted by it were treated as outcasts – shunned by every layer of society and forced to live in shadows or leper colonies. However, a recent archeological discovery seeks to challenge the traditional approach, by changing our perspective on the nature of the rapport between the leper and society. During an archaeological excavation at the Saint Mary Magdalen Cemetery, a team of scientists has discovered what seem to be the earthly remains of a pilgrim. This discovery becomes even more intriguing after finding out that the location is actually a Medieval cemetery and, on top of that, a leprosarium.

Offices Osakidetza, coll-barreu arquitectos The river of Bilbao is not the only area where urban renewal is taking place. In the center of the old town, the Basque Government has commissioned the young Basque architect Juan Coll-Barreu to design a 'vital' building, dominantly present on the corner of Calle Licenciado Poza with La Alameda de Rekalde. The works of this architect are characterized by their adaptive nature, like a glove fits to a hand. All conditions and circumstances are taken into account: first the urban context, the client's wishes, the functions of the building, the climate, and finally the project itself. After winning the design competition, this was the first project for him in a complex urban situation: 'In this design process, everything was a challenge'.
