Showroom: Ghost World

The newest addition to Martí Guixé's collaboration with nanimarquina, the Ghost carpet riffs on classic Kerman designs but renders them in an entirely new way. Image courtesy nanimarquina.For carpet aficionados, Kermans have a special place in their hearts. The product of Persian weavers of the 16th and 17th centuries, they’re known for their stunning designs, inventive weaving techniques and nearly incomparable wool. Now, classic Kermans are getting a witty reboot thanks to Martí Guixé’s newest design for nanimarquina.

Metropol Parasol 

Berlin based Jurgen Mayer H. demonstrated in their design of the Metropol Parasol in Seville, Spain that while plywood, metal and glue go a long way back in the building industry, they can always be pushed further. When it comes to how laminated wood pieces are shaped, coated, and how large a structure they can create, the possibilities open up.

With its 40,000 connection points between conjoined segments of the structure, the spatial configuration and sectional layering make it not just a shading canopy and elevated plaza, but also a farmer's market, restaurant, shopping center, roof promenade and archeological museum. Ultimately, this is a machine for revitalizing public space in the heart of an old city.

The Arganzuela Footbridge

Paris based architect, Dominique Perrault, recently opened the Arganzuela Footbridge to the public in Madrid, Spain which stretches over the Manzanares River into the park. The project stands out as an iconic element in the city by a pair of conic structures that are wrapped in interlocking metallic ribbons.

Providing direct access to both pedestians and cyclists, the porous design takes advantage of the natural light that breaks through the park's exisiting vegetation while establishing viewsheds throughout its 250 meter long span.

The Truffle House: A Unique Building Process

At first glance, this small living space on a Spanish sea-side cliff looks like a hollowed-out boulder with a window. Perhaps the most interesting part of the Truffle House is the unique process through which it was constructed, showcased in this video. To build it, the Ensamble Studio group began by digging a hole in the ground and pouring concrete into it. To create the hollow interior that would be the living space, they incorporated hay in the middle of the concrete. They then covered the whole structure with earth and let moss grow on it to give it an aged, natural look before uncovering it. The two ends were sliced off to create two openings and, finally, a cow named Paulina ate away the hay, opening up the space to fit a bed, kitchenette and sink.
