Lycée Schorge

by Kere Architecture

Very inspiring the architecture of Diebedo Francis Kere. German trained African architect, who addressed local conditions carefully develop on site and most of them financed through Kere Foundation. His language is experimental and crafted by locals.
Very exciting to know that Kere Architecture is behind the Serpentine Pavilion this year.

If there is a Australian style, in my opinion Fiona Lynch will be the perfect representative of it. Fresh, lay back, light and honest. It is not radical, but it is innovative in the use of materials but mostly and careful attention to details.

Herbert Bayer

Last week I went for the second time to see The Radical Eye: Modernist Photography from The Sir Elton John Collection astonishing  exhibition, where I could admire the original of one of my favourite photographs:

Herbert Bayer: Humanly Impossible

Enrolled in the early 1920s in a new school of design called the Bauhaus, Herbert Bayer helped shape its utopian ideal that ‘modern art and architecture must be responsive to the needs and influence of the modern industrial world and that good designs must pass the test of both aesthetic standards and sound engineering’. Inspired by various disciplines, he not only produced photography but also graphic works alongside architecture and furniture design. When he settled in Berlin, in 1928, Herbert Bayer opened a successful graphic design studio and soon took interest in photomontage using the technique for personal artistic projects but also his advertising commissions, thus establishing the photographic experimentation as a major commercial visual aesthetic in the 1930s. Alarmed by Germany’s political situation, he moved to New York in 1938 and once again became a recognized designer - photography being attached to the 1920s and 1930s in his practice. Herbert Bayer saw in photomontages the answer to imagination, a form of surrealist concept that denied clear meaning and contexts to the objects while the geometric lines of the Bauhaus aesthetic built experimental still lives.

Apartment 108

by Rodolphe Parente

Amazing collection of contemporary design objects, on an eclectic and bright set up that almost look unconnected... but the thing is that each go them have an song character on its own and its what makes them work together. This will be my ideal one bedroom flat. Investing on good design it is going to be my thing!
