The space was formerly the indoor swimming pool of a low-rise apartment. Designed by Japanese architect Nobuo Araki, hanging stainless pipes, elevated shelves and floor tables outfit the interior while authentic detailing — such as the well-worn walls and floors from decades of use – have been kept to maintain the pool-like atmosphere.
The Frame Store by i29 interior architects. Transforming the space into a mirrored universe, the award-winning designers elevate and reflect its grandeur.
To i29, the multiple use of mirrors throughout the monumental space stands for reflection of time and history; the old versus the new. Products are presented on series of single platforms with mirrored sides and black top surfaces with integrated black frames. The surfaces and products seam to float through space. The goal was to create a surreal world of reflecting elements presenting the products without interfering with the quality of the monumental environment. Two larger mirrored objects contain fitting rooms, a small art gallery and stairs that offer a different perspective for the visitors climbing them, and a surreal image for the other visitors in the shop looking only at the top half of these personages. The contradiction of this minimal and modest intervention is that the volumes are absorbed in the existing space and seem to dissapear. At the same time they are adding extreme sharpness and intensify the experience of the existing space even more than before.
Tamina thermal baths was designed by Smolenicky and partner architecture in 2009. It is located in Bad Ragaz, an area in Switzerland known for its famous natural springs. The building seems to be both modern and corresponding with the traditional architecture of the resort.
Built for an English family living on a large plot of privately owned land, this stunning stone residence takes maximum advantage of the property’s scenic beauty in all directions. Starting with a central point defined by a very traditional two-story farmhouse, the firm of Found Associates expanded in two opposite directions with a single-story, contemporary structure.
The once-in-12-years Maha Kumbh Mela that begins in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh is characterised by a massive gathering of more than 100 million devotees, god-men and tourists duirng the 55-day mega festival. The mega festival, where devotees from across the world gather to take a holy dip to attain salvation at the confluence of Ganga, Yamuna and mystical Saraswati rivers, is billed as the biggest human gathering in the world. The first written evidence of the Kumbha Mela can be found in the accounts of Chinese traveler, Huan Tsang who visited India in 629 -645 CE, during the reign of King Harshavardhana. However, similar observances date back many centuries, where the river festivals first started getting organised. According to Hindu theology, its origin is found in one of the most popular medieval puranas, the Bhagavata Purana.
