Colorful Lofts in Texas Fuse Art and Architecture

This is East Village Lofts in the Revitalization District of East 11th Street in Austin, Texas. The structure, designed by Bercy Chen Studio, makes a bold statement about the intersection of art and sustainability with a multifaceted facade of colorful steel panels. The panels, as you would imagine, double as a shade device and guardrails for condo balconies. 

East Village Lofts, or Block 19, was shortlisted in the Design for All competition held by Design Boom and Seoul Design Fair 2010.

Public Housing Building in Paris to be Heated by Metro System

The building, located near the Pompidou museum, is being renovated in an environmentally friendly way, due to it's connection to the metro through a stairway.

"Cloudscape" at Venice Biennale Combines External and Internal Environments

Japanese studio Tetsuo Kondo Architects and environmental engineering firm Transsolar have suspended a cloud inside the Arsenale exhibition space at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Called Cloudscapes, the installation is created by pumping three layers of air into the space: cold dry air at the bottom, hot humid air in the middle and hot dry air at the top. A spiral walkway guides visitors up through the layers to emerge above the cloud, before they descend back down through the vapour to the floor. The installation forms part of the exhibition People Meet in Architecture, directed by Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA.
