welcome editors

Making the extraordinary from the ordinary by sculpting
in paper, innovating innovation in a decaying paint factory,
exploring your inner child while defying gravity. These are mere
morsels of the deliciousand staggeringly creativefeast that
we are proud to serve up for you in the Big Ideas issue. A rst-
time attempt on this theme, it proved an exhilarating mammoth
of an undertaking. The old adage that the best policy is to leave
well enough alone is often impossible to follow when theres a
whole world to explore, discover, and rediscover.
But, heck, I will try. Why wait for me to extol this issues many
virtues when you can turn to page 45, and dig right in? Without
further ado or idle chatter, my editorial staff and I are ecstatic to
bring you 100 outstanding projects and products in design, ar-
chitecture, art, and everything in between. May they inspire you
not just to wish for the unimaginable but also to realize it, to be
your own dream-maker.
Lets discuss. Later.

I dont even own a car, Franois
Champsaur quips. And hes certainly
not about to buy a racehorse. How-
ever, his namesake rm has com-
pletely revamped Arqana, the Deau-
ville facility where Frances nest
thoroughbred yearlings are offered at
auction.
The 7,750-square-foot ring was
previously very rustic, he says. Like
something at an agricultural show.
Beneath a laminated-wood ceiling,
rudimentary chairs lined amphithe-
ater seatinga look utterly out of
sync with the beauty of the horses.
Theyre an exclusive and luxurious
product, Champsaur continues. You
have to present them in a spectacular,
theatrical manner. This he did by
painting that ugly ceiling black, in-
stalling spotlights on dimmers to cre-
ate a more dramatic ambience for
evening, and specifying theater-style
seats upholstered in four colors. He
also removed the platform on which
the horses formerly paraded. It

was less confusing to show them at ground level, he says.
Champsaurs biggest challenge was a new extension to house ofces,
meeting rooms, VIP lounges, and a 200-seat restaurant and bar. The
30,000-square-foot structure is separated from the sales ring by a wall of
glazing, which allows diners to follow the auction proceedings. Horses,
however, can be spooked by reections in glass, so he screened it with
oor-to-ceiling vertical slats of Douglas r, strategically angled to allow you
to see through only when directly in front. The result is really quite serene,
he says. And certainly preferable to watching someone tuck into buf
bourguignon while youre bidding on a future champion! Ian Phillips

You could say Martn Lejarragas new Terminal de Cruceros is a both/and situation. Located in the busy Spanish port
of Cartagena, it comprises a dozen curvaceous, open-air pavilions stretching along a concrete pier. Functionally, they
provide shelter and immigration facilities for arriving passengers. But the Martn Lejarraga Arquitecto principal wanted
the terminal to be both a threshold to the city and a part of its day-to-day life. So he designed a complex that not only
meets the requirements of the client, Autoridad Portuaria de Cartagena, the local port authority, but also enlivens the ex-
perience of passengersboth when they look down on it from the decks of arriving liners and when they pass through it
en route to the citys tourist attractions. All this while creating a structure that would become an identifying brand mark
for Cartagena. We had to consider polar opposites of scale, from near and far; position, from above and below; and
function, as a border crossing and a city icon, the architect says.
He and his team transformed the empty, 120,000-square-foot pier via simple, durable concrete canopies. Supported
on stainless-steel columns, they can tolerate the extreme conditions imposed by temperature, water, humidity, and cor-
rosive salt air. On the at roofs, colorful ceramic tiles, laid in fragmented pat-
terns inspired by aquatic life, nod to Mediterranean-wide mosaic techniques.
Below, panels of curving glass in aqueous shades of blue and green, screen-
printed with schools of sh, connect the pavilions to the water. Says Lejar-
raga, Its a meeting point between the city and the sea. Raul Barreneche

Clockwise from top: At Terminal de Cruceros, ceramic mosaics covering the pavilions
concrete roofs are abstractions of aquatic life. Oculi create patterns of light and shade on
the concrete pier. Stainless-steel columns support the 3-inch-thick canopies. Screen-
printed with marine imagery, curved glass panels create a windbreak. The tiled roofs are
visible to passengers on arriving ships. LEDs are recessed into the 13 pavilions.

retail-induced exhaustion.
To give them a place to rest

tended buying expeditions

one of Europes busiest

commissioned Alex Co-
chrane Architects to design

dor. Soft wool felt in a neu-
tral tone tops lacquered
oak-veneered seating and
covers walls and oor. LEDs,

their warm tone.

few blissfully relaxing min-
utes. Deborah Wilk

Construction is noisy. So building a 2,400-square-foot structure in the internal courtyard of an ofce com-
plex without kicking up a racket seems downright impossible. But Scope Ofce for Architecture did just that
with a temporary pavilion at the headquarters of the software developer SAP in the German town of Walldorf.
Merging two polygonal volumes, one being an enclosed gangway to the main building, the futuristic
pavilion houses 40 Years of Future, a year-long celebration of SAPs 40th anniversary. The exhibition was
created in cooperation with ARS Electronica Linz and Havas Worldwide and is divided into three thematic
multimedia areas. All use video presentations and touch-screen displays to explore the past, present, and
future of SAP.
Appropriately for SAP, computer-based 3-D modeling played a large role in Scopes design process. CNC-cut
parts were then delivered as kits. We were able to assemble the entire building envelope in just two nights,
principal Oliver Kettenhofen says. SAPs 12,000 employees remained undisturbed while the interior of the
pavilion was being built, too, because there are no large openings in the thick plywood shell, and interior
drywall conceals a layer of sound-absorbent mineral wool for further acoustic insulation.
Both the interior and exterior of the pavilion are coated in polyurethane, part black and part white. This
makes it appear to be two separate volumes, principal Mike Herud says. Tech-savvy visitors with a back-
ground in computer coding will notice the arrangement of the portholes punched out of the gangways black
enclosure. In binary code, they spell out 40 Years of Future. Mairi Beautyman

When Italcementi, one of the top con-

Richard Meier & Partners Architects to de-
sign its new headquarters, iLab, what re-
sulted is rock-solid but startlingly airy, too.
Interior Design Hall of Fame member
Richard Meier constructed the 250,000-
square-foot building, which culminates in
an arresting V-shape prow, primarily with
a high-strength, low-maintenance rein-
forced concrete that Italcementi speci-
cally developed for the project. The prod-
uct reacts with ultraviolet rays to break
down harmful automotive and industrial

If youre visiting EDG (China) Corporation, and you
think you see a giant pumpkin glowing in a quiet
corner, you havent lost your marbles. The pumpkin
is actually a meeting pod. Cinderellas coach inspired
not only the pods shape but also another unorthodox
feature, a set of wheelsit is literally ready to roll.
David Ho, then EDGs chief designer, dreamed up the
nifty contraption while recounting the fairy tale to
his two young daughters. (He has since become de-
sign director at Iaction.)
Measuring 14 feet in diameter, the pod comprises a
PVC skin and a steel frame. The wide door panel can
come off its hinge mechanism altogether, opening the
interior to the rest of the ofce. In addition, the struc-
ture is lightweight enough to be moved anywhere
in the building, and the frame can be partially dis-
assembled if the pod needs to be taken farther aeld.
Transport is made easier by timber knobs.
Under normal ofce conditions, the translucent shell
admits enough light. At night, neon tubing turns the
pumpkin into a lantern. Transformation is an active con-
cept in the structure itself, which is meant to encour-
age collaboration and creative thinking, Ho says.
He riffed on the pod aesthetic for two somewhat
more permanent, rectangular rooms nearby. Built
from polycarbonate and glass in a steel armature,
theyre not meant to be regularly mobile. But theyd
be easy for a contractor to relocate should the need
arise. Alexandra Seno

the pod can be used with
its door removed. Similar

were constructed from
polycarbonate, glass,
and steel. The Forbidden
City is another imagi-
nary backdrop.

Inspired by Timothy Pachirats book, Every Twelve Seconds, Veal, a performance orchestrated by multidisciplinary collective
Harrison Atelier, had a prime-beef goal: to cattle-prod vegetative minds into reassessing their relationship to the meat industry.
Principals Ariane Harrison, a designer, and her husband, Seth, a biotechnology entrepreneur with an MD, combined music, dance,
video, sculpture, and sets into a visceral work that bombarded the senses. When audience members arrived at the Invisible Dog
Art Center in Brooklyn, New York, they were herded into a room where three nearly nude dancers ran, jumped, and hung like
meat from plastic straps. They were then led into an adjoining space containing a looping video mural, tall steel racks crafted into
lyres, singers, and a dozen headless bovine forms, two of them tted with bagpipes that could be played. Georgina McWhirter

performance dancing

The livestock was made

Art in Embassies, a U.S. Department of State program, promotes cross-
cultural dialogue through the visual arts. So does David Stark, though his
works usually come with hors doeuvres. For AIEs 50th anniversary, the
event designer transformed a courtyard at the Smithsonians National
Portrait Gallery in Washington into fte central.

A makeover at the Smithsonian. Was that intimidating?
No, but old institutions have quirks that you must think about when planning.
The elevators and doorways are rather small. So, if you want large elements,
they need to come in small pieces.

Was that the challenge?
The room is immense26,000 square feet, with an 83-foot ceilingand required huge
components. So, we created a landscape of installations, performance art, sculpture, video,
sound, and drawing, all stemming from basic geometric shapes.
How big is big?
A 20-foot-tall viewing platform, upholstered in thousands of Post-its. The guests could
climb a staircase up to it and look down on the entire event.
What made you proudest?
Materials were donated by venerable American companies like Crayola and Benjamin Moore.
After the event, everything was given to Materials For the Arts, which provides thousands of
New York public schools with art supplies. It took 1.5 million crayons to make the events
pyramid and they all went on to children who wouldnt otherwise have them.
Truth be told, do you ever just relax and enjoy the party, or are you always on duty?
A little of both, actually. But when the last programmatic element happens, I can let go. Once
Nick Cave and the 50-piece marching band whipped the room into a dancing fervor, I
couldnt help but join in. Mark McMenamin

cultivate your garden
Scouring Flanders for a site to build a house, furniture
designer Filip Janssens found a -acre property on the edge
of woods in Aalst, northwest of Brussels. Tom Lierman Ofce
of Architecture and Interiors designed him a barnlike resi-
dence with oversize windows that frame the natural sur-
roundings. We only see the green, Janssens says. Then, for
an even stronger connection to the outdoors, he built a small
garden folly beside the vegetable plot out back.
Like the main house, the pavilion has an exterior clad in
larch planks that will be left to weather silver gray. The 110-
square-foot interior, fully insulated, comprises a tool shed
and an airy garden room with a painted plywood oor. Large
glass pocket doors disappear into both sidewalls, opening the
room to the surroundings. I rolled one door back on a chilly
afternoon this winter and sat in the sunshine for an hour, Janssens reports. A daybed with cushions covered in stain-
resistant linen is built into one of the walls between the doors. Opposite the daybed, he built one of his signature
white storage walls. It accommodates a surprising amount of paraphernalia, including a ip-down desk, drawing sup-
plies, barbecue equipment, and a rarely needed electric heater. Between cabinet doors, oiled-walnut shelves provide
perches for small ceramic birds, a nod to the doves that roost on the green roof, planted with ivy. Craig Kellogg

When ING Direct Italia aquired a bricks-and-mortar home in Rome, the online bank charged
two rms, New Architects and Newtone Architects, with making the storefront work as both a banking
institution and a concept store. The designers started with the brands avatar, a pumpkin: reproducing
its shape and shade of orange in the form of a 13-foot-long, 8-foot-high lacquered pod that sits in the
middle of the 4,800-square-foot branch. Customers enter to receive personalized services while seated on leather-
covered banquettes in a cozy, enveloping environment. Glass slippers not included. Georgina McWhirter

of the program is the biennial Modernism

seriously compromised by a 2004 typhoon.
The consortium seismically retrotted both
structures, safeguarding distinctive elements
such the librarys suspended reading balcony
and staircase, which appear to oat above
the Kiki River. More than 90 percent of the
existing architectural elements were found
suitable for repurposing. Of the 462 original
columns in Japanese cedar, all but three were
retained and repaired. Where materials could
not be salvaged, faithful reproductions ll
the gap. Paint colors were investigated and
replicated. Damaged tiles were exchanged
with replacements cast from the same molds.
But ultimately, to accommodate the
demands of 21st-century learning, a few
more invasive procedures were required.
The classrooms were recongured as multi-
purpose spaces. A two-story, 6,700-square-
foot addition gently expands Matsumuras
footprint yet honors his vision, with its
double-height fenestration and generous
use of woods such as cedar and cherry.
After all, the only thing better than a new
idea is to rescue a good one that already
exists. Mark McMenamin
Clockwise from top right: Window walls

When Kengo Kuma & Associates was commissioned by the Lixil JS Founda-
tion, which owns Memu Meadows: Centre for Research of Environmental Tech-
nologies, for a prototype house on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, the
frm began by studying the dwellings of the indigenous Ainu people. Called
chise, and developed because central Japans traditional wooden post-and-beam
structures were unsuited to the regions harsh climate, these houses had exterior
walls of thatched sedge or bamboo grass and an unpartitioned interior centered
on an ever-burning freplace. KKAAs modernized version, dubbed Mme, in-
cludes a frame of locally harvested larch clad in fuorocarbon-coated polyester,
lined with a removable glass-fber fabric, and insulated with a polyester mem-
brane made from recycled PET bottleswhich makes for a translucent structure
that holds heat effciently. The mostly open-plan 850-square-foot interior has a
central woodburning freplace, hot-water pipes fowing through the walls and
foor, and is lit by LEDs, which are only needed at night. Matthew Powell

temperature drops to 13 degrees Fahrenheit. At night, the replace and LEDs illuminate
the house, which is encolsed by a translucent three-layer membrane. C

dream big, build small
Theres an increasing demand for affordable living spaces in big cities worldwide. Acknowledging this truth, the New York City
Department of Housing Preservation and Development launched the adAPT NYC competition to develop proposals for buildings con-
taining micro-apartments. N Architects won with My Micro NY, comprising 55 prefabricated modular apartments ranging in size from
250 to 370 square feetthe rst such development in Manhattan. Each apartment will take two weeks to build before being shipped to
the site and hoisted into place; the resulting nine-story structure will then be clad in brick. (Move-in for the rst My Micro NY apart-
ment is scheduled for 2015.) Another competition entry, designed by Clei and Amie Gross Architects has already been built, at full
scale, as part of the Museum of the City of New Yorks Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers. Matthew Powell

Most contemporary architecture seeks
to add to the distinction of a city through its sky-
line. But one small house distinguishes itself
and its Lisbon neighborhoodby creating one
of those pockets of pedestrian discovery, an
unexpected corner of delight, for which great
cities are famed and loved. In an act of muni-
cipal-minded generosity, the four-story, 2,700-
square-foot house, with its 1,100 square feet
of vertical garden, has provided a drab cul de
sac with a new kind of park. A private residence
is also a public amenity.

The work of father and son Lus and Tiago
Rebelo de Andradeof RA Architectural &
Design Studio and Subvert, respectively
with Manuel Cacho Tojal of ADN Garden
Design , the bushy little house situates itself
condently near a tall weeping g tree, as
though standing next to an old friend. And
with 25 indigenous Iberian and Mediterra-
nean plant varieties growing on the facade,
its practically a botanical garden.
For its residents, the house is a city within
the city. The central feature, a narrow stair-
case that ascends between towering walls,
evokes the stepped streets of Lisbons oldest

of urban enticement and exploration to domes-
tic life. On the roof, a lap pool is an urban
oasis , like a fountain in a square.
Lus Rebelo de Andrade, who says he has
wandered Lisbon since he was a boy, always
nding fantastic things, was out to enhance,
not disrupt, its texture. He managed to make
something invisible that everyone sees, he
explains. Thats the magic of the worlds great
places. William L. Hamilton
Clockwise from top: The vertical gardens irrigation is controlled by a system that
monitors weather and solar conditions. The lap pool slightly widens at one end, outtted
with a timber deck. Portholes in the bottom provide daylight to the rooms below.
Conversely, at night, light from the dining and living rooms illuminates the pool like
conventional underwater lighting. Stairs are afzelia.
Opposite: A steel frame attached to the concrete faade supports the PVC pockets that
contain the plants.

It was the perfect Canadian
hideaway: a secluded 3,800-square-
foot, two-story log cabin with ve bed-
rooms, ve bathrooms, gabled win-
dowseven a lake. Everything about
the 15-year-old retreat appealed to
the discreet Belgian house-hunters
who bought the property. Except the
interior color.
It was all varnished pine, InStore
founder Pierre Hoet says. Hired to
renovate the amber-colored lodge,
the designers rst thought was to
sand the surfaces, but he feared that
would damage them. He decided to
paint everything either white or black.
Im very categorical, he explains.
Examining the logs and boards, he
realized that white would reveal im-
perfections. So black it would be.
The owners saw magic in the
designer s madness and gave him
carte blancheor, rather, carte
noire. Soon a color called Black Tie,
applied with airless paint pistols,
covered nearly every surface, inside
and out. The ground levels oak-plank ooring was washed with chlorine. Locals thought we were part
of a cult, he recalls with a laugh.
Hoet outtted the Mchante Cabane, killer cabin in Quebecois slang, with mostly black furnishingsa
few carefully chosen colored items, such as a vivid red painting, are thrown into radiant relief. Outside,
the forest setting took on a new relationship to the house: In autumn, seasonal colors appear intensied
by the dark structure in their midst; in winter, the picture windows frame the glowing, snow-covered
landscape. But the most enchanted moment is nightfall. When it gets dark, the walls seem to disap-
pear, he says. You feel like youre outside. Its extraordinary. Killer, indeed. Seth Sherwood

Walls in Western architec-

Architects principal Keisuke
Maeda says. In his opinion,

tion between interior and ex-
terior: Walls in Asia function
to open nature up to you. Im
more interested in buildings

Even a garden is too great a
distance between the two.

My aim, he continues, is
for my architecture to be new
but rooted in traditional Japa-
nese practice. His Fukuyama
house draws on elements such
as engawa, the transitional
space between indoors and
outdoors, marked by thresh-
olds, porticoes, verandas, and
similar structures, and tategu,
the various doors, windows,

There were leaks, and the
oor was a wreck, the ar-
chitect recalls.
By paying three years
rent in advance, he made
possible a renovation under
the auspices of the national
Monuments Historiques. It
didnt go as far as a full res-
toration, he says. It was
simply xed up to look as if
it had aged naturally. Orig-
inal features, left in place,
include reinforced-concrete
columns in the circular liv-
ing room. I wouldnt know
how to remake those, he
admits. Perret was so tech-
nically advanced.
Perrets taste in decora-
tion, however, was rather
conventional; archival im-
ages show the living room
furnished with art deco
chairs and Oriental rugs.
Claus took a sparer, more
modernist approach, using
items more or less contem-
porary with the building,
such as Alvar Aaltos Savoy
vase. Later 20th-century
design classics, among
them a dining table by Eero
Saarinen and chairs by
Charles and Ray Eames,
also appearin subdued
colors that dont compete
with the architecture. There
is, meanwhile, the odd
ash of red or yellow. Oth-
erwise, Claus says, it
would have been just too
reverential. Ian Phillips

scaped interior courtyards and curved tiled roofs, conicted with a strong desire for both high security

intricately overlapping interior spaces encircle a 2,200-square-foot courtyard that maximizes light pen-
etration and air circulationimportant concerns, given the hot, humid climate.
We modernized traditional landscaping, principal HyoMan Kim says. To the expected native

Seeking inspiration for a
summer house, on Stockholms
outer archipelago, Arkitektstudio
WRB found a suitably pastoral
muse: the centuries-old barns
that speckle Swedens country-
side. Beyond aesthetics, this ro-
bust modela spacious interior
supported entirely by a durable
hardwood shellpromised lon-
gevity, the ultimate expression
of sustainability. But the idea
of an impenetrable facade was
at odds with the clients desire
for a nearly open-air retreat.
Several brainstorming ses-
sions later, Arkitektstudio WRB
came up with a conceptual com-
promise: Retain the inspiration;
upend the application.
Wood remains critical to the
1,800-square-foot house. A
single sturdy species, heart-
wood pine, was milled for both
structural and decorative ele-
ments. However, rather than
relying on perimeter walls to
buttress the 84-foot-long
Clockwise from top: Heartwood

Seville is often referred to
as the frying pan of Spain: A
blazing sun delivers blistering
summer heat. But sunlight
was a scarce commodity in the
two-story building architect
Carlos Pedraza moved into to
use as his residence and ofce
for Carlos Pedraza Arquitectos
Asociados.
Located at the center of a
deep city block, with only 15
feet of frontage on a narrow
alleyway, the 1965 former in-
dustrial warehouse and store-
front had few windows and no
skylights. So, for the gut reno-
vation, Pedraza turned to a
centuries-old Iberian Penin-
sula tradition: the interior
courtyard. In fact, he removed
enough roofing to create three
such internal courtyards, stra-
tegically siting them to sepa-
rate work and living quarters,
maximize warming winter
light, and minimize harsh
summer sun, making the
boxed-in structure positively
luminous.

From the alley, the 5,800-
square-foot building seems as
impenetrable as a closed
drawbridge. Corrugated-steel
shutters locked tight beneath
black-lacquered steel plates
dominate the whitewashed
brick facade. But concealed in
those corrugations is a pivot-
ing door, which comprises
plates of micro-perforated
stainless steel. When the inte-
rior lights are on, the facade
glows like a gauzy veil, calling
to mind a modernist version
of a Moorish screen or an
industrial-grade lace curtain.
Inside, Pedraza installed new
granite oor slabs in the ofce
and marble ones in the resi-
dence and exposed original
brick throughout. He furnished
spaces, such as the architec-
ture studio and the dining
area, with pieces by Hans
Wegner, Charles and Ray
Eames, and Konstantin Grcic
further melding past with
present. Raul Barreneche
Clockwise from top left: The
architecture studio has a Frank
Gehry pendant xture and a wall
of exposed original brick. The
double-height dining area,
furnished with Hans Wegner
chairs, opens to the pool and
deck through shutters of
perforated stainless steel. The
master bathroom overlooks the
same deck. An olive tree is
visible from the master
bedroom. Featuring a 15-foot-
long Corian-topped island, the
kitchen accesses the smallest
of the three interior courtyards.

Once Dorothy was done in
Oz, she discovered that every-
thing her heart desired was
right in her own backyard.
Levitt Goodman Architects fol-
lowed the road to an identical
revelation for a Toronto family
that was yearning for a quiet
outdoor hideaway. Rather
than scouring the countryside
in search of an untouched
site, the rm homed in on the
clients own residence, located
on the banks of Don River, as
the ideal location.
A neighboring house on a
acre was acquired and de-
molished, the discarded mate-
rials and xtures repurposed
by Habitat for Humanity To-
ronto. That set the stage for
collaborator Scott Torrance
Landscape Architect to conjure
a patchwork of open-air diver-
sions: walking and buttery
gardens, a waterfall wall, sand
play area, ipe decks, and, most
notably, a lagoonlike saltwater
swimming pool. Art installa-
tions and custom fencing
Clockwise from top: The -acre
sites existing Austrian pines
were preserved to border the
new pool house and saltwater
swimming pool, enclosed by
fritted glass panels. Sliding
glass doors connect the houses
new addition to the ipe deck.
Native grasses and wildowers
line the walking gardens pebble
paths. Locally sourced
limestone forms a replace in
the 800-square-foot addition.
A green roof tops the addition.

erything is alfresco: Theres a
475-square-foot pool house
that LGA built of fritted glass,
mahogany, and ber cement
board and a 1,000-square-foot
garage featuring panels
pierced to reveal constellation
patterns when backlit.
A few steps up from the lush
grounds, an 800-square-foot
addition to the rear of the main
house contains a new living-
dining area. The transition
from exterior to interior is soft-
ened with such natural mate-
rials as oil-rubbed mahogany,
zinc, local limestone, and
plaster. The extension, like the
garage and pool house, has a
roof planted with indigenous
grasses, furthering the con-
cept that the most satisfying
things are often found close to
home. Mark McMenamin

A three-pronged program at a Los
Angeles animation studio was achieved,
logically enough, by a trio of collaborating
rms. Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio and
Waisler Design & Development together
took on architecture and interiors, while
Studio J effected landscaping. The projects
macro component was renovating the
1,700-square-foot structure, a 1940s ware-
house with bowstring trusses and skylights:
Most of the mezzanine was leveled to make
room for a new red-steel stairway, and
oversize sliding glass doors and windows
were installed to meld the indoors with the
staff outdoor lounge, which is outtted with
a 16-foot-high green wall. The big move,
however, is dead center back inside. A free-
standing acoustically isolated red-cedar
cube houses the screening and IT rooms
plus two edit bays. Edie Cohen

Clockwise from top left: A new 1,100-square-foot cube and steel stairway anchors
circulation at an animation studio. Decomposed granite, a wall of red trumpet vines,
heat lamps, and tables and chairs of recycled anodized aluminum furnish the
outdoor lounge, which connects to the kitchen counter via a 10-foot-wide sliding
window. The cube, clad in red cedar planks, stands beneath the 1940s warehouses

No, it was a three-story motel

Worlds Fair. The ground floor
was a garage. I worked

relocating some plumbing
but not the elevators or fire
stairs.

You brought the word out
into the branding?
The new facade is like a giant
Times Square sign spelling O-
U-T, which is recognized by
gay communities in many cul-
tures. I added NYC, so it could
work in other cities, too.
Youre out, yourself?
Yes, of course!
How did New Yorks gay
culture influence you?
The hotel is in Hells Kitchen,
near Chelseaboth gay
neighborhoods. Its moderate-
ly priced, because the com-
munity is diverse. For guests
who cannot afford a private
room, there are quads with
four double-width bunks that
go for $70 apiece and come
with a locking closet.
You really kept costs in
mind.
We are not trying to be a W or
a Four Seasons, though the
architecture is aspirational. I
used colorful paint in existing
stairwells and inexpensive
bamboo flooring in the restau-
rant, and the wall coverings
look more high-end than they
actually are. Those were deci-
sions made as both designer
and client, since Im one of the
owners. Craig Kellogg

Arizona State Universitys latest science and technology building may
be Ehrlich Architectss most complex commission yet. The seven-story,
300,000-square-foot structure needed to house both the School of Earth
and Space Exploration and the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering, each
requiring labs, ofces, and meeting rooms. In other words, the engineers
and researchers would share a building with the developers of the instru-
ments that enable research. To encourage togetherness, Steven Ehrlich
planned interiors around two atria. The one connecting the rst two levels,
which contain a science museum and a 3-D planetarium, is public; the upper
one, ringed by glass-fronted labs, is private. A ribbonlike connecting stair is
clad with perforated steel, its patterns a riff on geological stratadetailing
that was the fortuitous outcome of conversations with the stairs fabricator.
The design teams takeaway? Collaborate, early and often. Edie Cohen

The menu at Ikibana melds Japanese
and Brazilian cuisines, and the challenge for
El Equipo Creativo was to translate this fusion
of the minimalist and the exuberant into a
coherent restaurant design. The solution lay
in botanical imagery. We discovered that its
an extremely important element in both cul-
tures, co-founder Natali Canas del Pozo says.
So the 2,700-square-foot interior joins the
restaurants name in referencing Japanese
principles of ower-arranging, using all parts
of a plant to emphasize line and form. But this
is no austere ikebana composition. Thanks to
petal-shape tables, an equatorial profusion of
decorative foliage, both real and articial, and
a canopy of sinuous hardwood branches,
the space throbs with Amazonian heat.

The Port Theater, a classic 1949
SoCal movie palace in Corona del
Mar, went dark in 1998. More than
a decade later, the theater was ren-
ovated, and the lights turned back
on for the 2012 Newport Beach Film
Festival. And the prize for best update
of a beacon, while respecting it, goes
to . . . Laidlaw Schultz Architects.
Craig Schultzs main move rein-
vented the facade, which became
a palisade of panels. At street level,
theyre steel, punched and painted
inky purple on the front, hot magenta
on the backthanks to a mirror wall
behind the perforations, passersby
glimpse themselves as ickering,
quasi-cinematic reections. Above
the steel-beam canopy, the panels
are aluminum, bent into a deco-
inspired relief pattern. Highest of
all, prow-shape refurbished signage
proclaims that the theater is now
the New Port. Edie Cohen

Younguns. Thats what you could call MaRS, a design firm established in 2010,
and the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, which debuted in Houston in 2011. But newly
formed doesnt mean novice, especially when it comes to MaRS founders Kelie May-
field and Erick Ragni, architects who first worked together at DMJM Rottet a decade
ago. Houston natives, their knowledge of the city and art won them the VIP lounge
commission at the 2012 Texas Contemporary Art Fairand theyve been hired again
for 2013. Heres the skinny.
Dont Mess With Texas
Aspects of Houston defined a lounge by MaRS for a contemporary art fair
Clockwise from top: MaRS
founders Kelie Mayeld and
Erick Ragni in front of an Aerosol
Warfare mural at their ofce.
Umbrellas, nylon carpet tile, and
repurposed shipping pallets,
all donated, like MaRSs design
services, dening the VIP
lounge. An Ann Wood installation
in a corner of the lounge. Former
cable spools as tables. Exercise-
ball ottomans made from suc-
tion cups, glue, and zip ties.
Why the umbrellas and
shipping pallets?
Our hurdle was to create an
intimate space in a cavernous
convention hall. We brain-
stormed themes specific to
Houston. The grid of 24 um -
brellas referenced the city
being the sixth rainiest in the
U.S.and tempered the 35-
foot ceiling. As well as defin-
ing the lounges perimeters, the
stacked pallets symbolized the
citys port being the countrys
second busiest. The tables of
repurposed cable spools tied into
our energy-sector prominence.
And the exercise balls?
That was our nod to the ongo-
ing effort to change Houstons
image as one of the fattest cit-
ies. We grouped five different-
size balls into ottomans, con-
necting them with suction
cups, glue, and zip ties. Were
actually in discussions with an
investor to produce them.
28
How about the color
palette?
The fairs logo is white and
red, the latter specifically Pan-
tone 1797 U. So of course we
incorporated red to emphasize
the brand. Shaw donated the
carpet tiles, which we plan to
reuse for this years fair, but
only had so much red in their
inventory. We then turned to
gray, which complimented
and softened the red and is
relaxed yet elegant.

Anything funny written on
the two chalkboard walls
that flanked the lounge?
Yes. TX IS: big and juicy. ART
IS: ding dong delicious. Peo-
ple would add on to what oth-
ers wrotethe walls became
an evolving work of art.
MaRS is an acronym for
your names, but is there also
an outer-space aspect to it?
Not directly, but we do find
the planetary connection lends
a bit of personality to the stu-
dio. To answer the phone
Welcome to MaRS is quite
enjoyable. We try to include
humor in every job. We feel
seriousness is sufficiently
covered in the marketplace.

stage high drama
The question posed to MGA Partners Architects by Indiana University:
How to repurpose a 1930s, 38,000-square-foot theater rendered obso-
lete by the completion of the Bloomington schools new drama center?
The easy answer was to make it a 300-seat movie theater and draw its
color palette from a quartet of 1933 Thomas Hart Benton murals the
university had in its possession. But what to do with the triple-height y
tower now that there was no use for it? Luckily, ofcials were also look-
ing to add movement and acting studios. . .inexpensively. By dividing the cav-
ernous volume into three oors, MGA created two studios, one that doubles as
a performance theater, at a fraction of the cost of building new spaces. Original
brick walls and steel framing were retained, lending character along with a
targeted LEED Silver certication. Bravo. Nicholas Tamarin
Clockwise from top left: Cast-
concrete ooring was added
around existing catwalk stairs in
the former y tower. The y-tower
renovation yielded a 266-seat
performance theater. The move-
ment studio includes a sprung oor
and rigging under a new skylight.
The movie theater sports Thomas
Hart Bentons 1933 murals, custom
speaker/chandeliers, and seats
upholstered in recycled polyester.

It makes perfect sense: a

ing up with a childrens speech
therapist. But how to unite the
two Rome businesses function-
ally and stylistically? Such was
the challenge Studi Medici As-
sociati DApolito Malacarne
Tucci posed to Steve E. Blatz,
Architect, and Antonio Pio Sar-
acino. The teams response is
most apparent in the waiting
area, where a system of rib-
bons creates an all-around spatial experience, Saracino says. Said rib-
bons are actually thin layers of drywall, which were moistened on-site,
so they could be molded over a wavy substructure to form inviting
benches, shelving, stairs, and even the ceiling. Green, the color both
practices chose as their brand identity, provides further unity, appearing
in the upholstery and coves, the desk in the speech-therapists ofce,
and the LEDs lighting the dentists ofce. Annie Block

Todd Heiser waxes ironic recounting his vision for
1871, a shared ofce space for digital entrepreneurs,
its name referencing the year of the Great Chicago
Fire. Ultimately, it was designed to be hackable, the
Gensler design director explains. In other words, the
55,000-square-foot Merchandise Mart facility is essen-
tially a compliant shell, ready for users to customize
their own work areas within. As members come and
go, so do the walls, courtesy of a rotating series of
murals by local artists. Beyond workstations, caf tables
and a break room foster kinship between moguls-to-be.
Throughout, vintage furnishings boast Chicagoan
provenance, such as the serpentine sofa originally
commissioned in the 1960s to Bertrand Goldberg,
who designed it for his Marina City project nearby. It
now offers the citys budding history makers a place
for afternoon naps. Mark McMenamin
rm: gensler site: chicago
Clockwise from top: Fluorescent
tubes in the entry form the logo of
1871, a shared workplace. Glass
panels adhered with colored lm are
meant to evoke the Chicago Rivers
ripples. A mural by local artist Justus
Roe simulates reections from Lake
Michigan as seen from above. Also
local, Chris Silvas found-wood mural
spells out 1871. The 40-foot-long
vintage sofa by Bertrand Goldberg

Chapman University in Orange, California, has its fair share of commuters. Until recently, students had to
go off campus to the adjacent Old Towne Historic District to nd places to eat, socialize, or group study between
classes. University ofcials were looking to give them an on-campus alternative: a fun, well-designed hangout
of their own. So the school asked AC Martin to renovate and enlarge an existing buildinga logical move, since
the rm had designed the two-story structure in the 1980s. Under the leadership of Christopher King, director
of interior architecture, whats now called Argyros Forum, after its benefactor, encompasses a third-story addi-
tion that opens onto a green roof deck, bringing the total square footage from 21,000 to 42,500, outdoors in-
cluded. The faculty lounge lays claim to that new top oor, while admissions ofces occupy the second.
But the ground oor is dedicated to a
bona de student center thats been
conceived as a grand living room. To
break down the large scale, we created nine seating areas, each with its
own look and feel, King says. An open walnut volume with green or gray
built-in banquettes, Jasper Morrison stools, and corkboards is one option.
A comfy, cozy carpeted area with custom sofas, armchairs, and foam
blocks is another. For that all-important nourishment, theres a snack
counter near the entry and a cafeteria in back. Now, traveling to Old
Towne is old hat. Edie Cohen

To refresh three outposts of
Yoshinoya, a popular fast-food
chain with 1,700 branches world-
wide, AS Design Service focused on
incorporating the idea of a modern
home. The trio of prototypes are all
inside Hong Kong shopping malls,
so underscoring Yoshinoyas
unique identity was a priority. ASDS
worked toward creating a crisp, en-
ergetic aesthetic that would appeal
to the young, but that was also in-
fused with the brands history: Yo-
shinoya, which specializes in rice
bowls topped with beef, was estab-
lished in Tokyo in 1899.
Since it was a project for a chain,
affordability, durability, and func-
tionality were important consider-
ations when choosing materials.
ASDS specied vinyl seating uphol-
stery and walls of aluminum panels
that resemble shingles or plastic-
laminate planks, all in bright or-
angeYoshinoyas trademark
colorwhich also helps grab shop-
pers attention. The modern-home
theme was carried out by installing
simple yellow house-frame shapes
throughout the restaurantsabove
the main dining area, surrounding
the menu board, in signage, and at
the service and pick-up windows.
Wood-block menus, ceilings clad
with black Japanese roof tiles, and
origami-inspired triangles provide
the desired hint of tradition. For
feature walls, ASDS lined niches
with vinyl printed to look like wood
for showcasing Yoshinoyas custom
serving bowls.
The project presented an oppor-
tunity to improve green practices.
Lighting was changed to uores-
cents and at-screen TVs are LED
models. Sounds delicious.

The assignment seemed simple enough: Design a freestanding
studio and gallery for a married couple, adjacent to their house in
the foothills of Virginias Blue Ridge Mountains. We both needed
separate places to work, but didnt want to be cut off from each
other, says gallerist Lyn Warren. Her husband, Russ, is a neo-
expressionist painter whose gurative work is well-known in
contemporary-art circles. Though far from simple, the solution from
W.G. Clark Associates centers on one theme: using natural light to
unify form and function throughout the 1,120-square-foot, two-
story pavilion in Charlottesville.
Light is the dening characteristic, says WGCA associate archi-
tect Josh Stastny. How it enters and how the space inside changes
during the day because of it. A wall of translucent glass block with
a deep painted plywood overhang on the southern exposure mini-
mizes the effect of summer sun, while welcoming that of winter. In-
side, where ooring is a uniform white oak, cantilevered walls ensure
the interior is washed in indirect sunlight, right down to its corners.
It doesnt need articial illumination, continues Warren, whose
gallery, Les Yeux du Monde, occupies the pavilions ground oor.
All day, gentle light is on the paintings, so visitors can see how
theyll look. The intervention can lay claim to a boost in creative
output, too: Russ is in the smallest studio hes ever had, she says
of the artists mezzanine space. But hes produced more paintings
here than anywhere else. Little wonder. J. Michael Welton
Clockwise from top: Kurt Stegers mixed-media sculpture stands before
the glass-block south facade of Les Yeux du Monde gallery. A oating
stair of white-oak treads leads to painter Russ Warrens mezzanine
studio. In October 2011, Russ Warren: While We Sleep, a series of his
acrylics on canvas, was exhibited in the gallery, which is owned by his
wife, Lyn. The 480-square-foot gallery is double-height. The gallery-
studio, a freestanding pavilion of glass block, Cor-Ten steel, plywood,
and concrete, shares the 30-acre property with the Warrens residence.

Christopher Dameron gave 90s grunge a hipster makeover
with a motorcycle garage and courtyard behind an apartment
building in Brooklyn, New York. This former marble workshop,
rst stripped down to its stained
and grafti-covered concrete-
block walls, became an indoor-
outdoor space that allows its
owner to store, work on, and
display his vintage motorbikes.
Rened elements include a steel-
framed roof, engineered to sup-
port a fully planted garden, and
a facade clad in custom-milled
cedar planks, which also cover
two sliding steel doors. The latter
open to accommodate art shows
and music gigs, taking the garage-band concept to an elegant
new level. Georgina McWhirter
Clockwise from left: The alley from the street to the garage is wide
enough for motorbikes but not cars. Sliding doors clad in custom-
milled cedar create indoor-outdoor exibility for events. The ceilings
steel frame, gloss-painted to bounce daylight into the interior,
incorporates operable skylights and supports a roof garden.
Whats the point
of a new building if
theres nothing new
about it? Dennis
Wedlick of Barlis-
Wedlick Architects asks.
That philosophy is evi-
dent at TCI of New
York, in the Hudson
Valley town of Ghent.
A recycler of electrical
transformers, it will be
headquartered in the most energy-efcient commercial building in the U.S. when completed
in 2014. The 3,600-square-foot structure, a barrel vault arching over a single interior volume,
adheres to rigorous Passive House Institute US standards, which specify materials and con-
struction techniques to improve indoor air quality, reduce energy consumption, and increase
durability while cutting costs. I love the fact that our most innovative building by far looks so
basic, Wedlick says. Thats the beauty of utility. Nicholas Tamarin

of nature shine through. But unlike real
stone, Bluestone has unmatched stain and
scratch resistance and contains a minimum
of 20 percent recycled content. Whats more,
its available in a variety of sizes, including
popular plank shapes via Crossvilles Get
Planked program. So for the rich luster
and timeless beauty of stone, Bluestone
Porcelain Stone is the perfect alternative.

Michael White is uniquely qualified to comment on commer-
cial sites. When we first met the architect, he was a managing
partner at HLW in Los Angeles, focusing on large-scale office
projects. Then he broke the news: He was going to the other
side, to Cresa, a real-estate consulting firm dealing mostly in
Class A buildingsmeaning those classified as the highest qual-
ity and usually newest on the market. But we always thought
hed be back, and he confirmed our hunch by joining Gensler as
principal in 2010. He talks to us about office environments for
todays creative class, specifically Latitude 34 in Playa Vista.
go to the head
of the class
A former real-estate consultant, Michael
White is designing Class A Los Angeles
buildings worthy of their designation
What was the old standard for a Class A building?
Lots of granite and opulent materials, a high-rise environment, cer-
tain metrics for core-to-window depth, and the fact that they were
engineered relative to finance, not design.
What about todays Class As?
The focus is now on the user experience. In multitenant buildings,
each company wants its own entrance along with a connection to
outdoor office space, i.e., landscaped courtyards with work areas.
Theres an attitude change. As people are promoted, its turning out
that they dont want bigger offices and fancy furniture. They want a
cool, flexible environmentand coffee bars!
How does this translate to design?
With new construction, its buildings that are authentic. No faux
bowstring trusses. With existing buildings, were creating outdoor
connections where there arent any, among other things. With both,
we need to design from a tenants perspective, from the inside out.
What is Gensler doing at Latitude 34?
Its a 2008 six-story building and we completely gutted it. Nothing
was sacred. To appeal to film, music, and gaming companies, we
brought in corrugated metal, mesh screens, wood slats, and graffiti-
like billboards. Outside spaces have Wi-Fi and flat-screens. External
stairs give each company its own entrance. Green landscaping
replaces concrete. We worked closely with the developer, Lincoln
Property Company, so that the connotation for lessees will be own-
ership, not just tenancy.
Overall, does this affect rent rates?
Indirectly, yes. People had been renting useless square footage
before. Now, we wont build unneeded space. Edie Cohen
Clockwise from top: A computer rendering of Latitude 34 in Los Angeles
showing the building facade doubling as a billboard. New corrugated
aluminum facades and balconies. Outdoor lounges for meetings and
events. External stairways to individual entrances and landscaped
courtyards. The Gensler principal.

Why has Canada been so late to
the game?
Were just way behind the global

How did you connect with the

Are designers considering all
aspects of accessibility?
I dont think so. Universal
design has dealt mostly with
people in mobility devices; peo-

cognitive impairments are not
foremost in designers minds.
And they have to be.

and office-policy formation.
What kind of environments has
AAA created to date?
One example would be our own
office, which we use as a showcase
for integrated universal design.
Weve redesigned the restrooms,
enlarged conference rooms, and
brightened our color palette and
lighting systems. With these chang-
es and others, were able to prove
that universal design can enhance,
not restrict, the possibilitiesand
look good, too.
What are you doing differently

return to the womb
When Arkin, a psychiatric-care institution in Amsterdam, approached D/Dock
Design Development to create a prototype treatment room, design director Fran-
cesco Messori looked to the uterus for inspiration. Its where the fetus is pro-
tected and growth, warmth, and evolution are essential, he says. The 430-
square-foot result is divided in a way that allows for different treatments to take
place simultaneously. A cocoonlike curved space for isolation treatment can be closed off,
while a booth with banquettes for active therapy and a relaxation area with a massage
chair are both open. The palette of natural colors soothes. But a computer touch screen
can add colored lighting and music when a boost is needed. Nicholas Tamarin

Renovating a young familys house in part of a 19th-century
former industrial building in Paris, Chiarodo Maillet Architectes
gutted the attic and
turned it into sleeping
quarters for three sisters.
Rather than divide the
aerie into separate rooms,
Jrme Chiarodo and Rgis
Maillet left the volume
open but gave each little
girl a place of her own,
working with a cabinet-
maker to develop three
identical chambers. Made
of beech, and outtted
with built-in beds and
skylights, the 7-by-6-foot units roll on casters to be positioned
wherever the children please. Playtime and homework take
place in the common space. If someone needs a little alone
time, she can retreat into her own box. And because girls will be
girls, the units are tted with sliding doors that cannot be
slammed during not-so-ladylike moments. Deborah Wilk

designers Jan Ankiersztajn; Ben de la Roche;
Christopher Holm-Hansen.
Begun to foster the development of young talent,
the annual Electrolux Design Lab, now in its 10th year,
attracted some 1,200 global entrants who were chal-
lenged to create products that stimulate the senses. The
10 finalists made their closing presentations to the jury
in Milans Triennale Design Museum last October.
Poland native Jan Ankiersztajn won first prize and a
six-month internship at the Electrolux global design
center, thanks to his Aeroball, a floating bubble that
cleans the air while hovering in space. New Zealander
Ben de la Roche took second place for Impress, a mod-
ular refrigeration wall that allows users to press storage
containers and bottles directly into it instead of opening
a door and doesnt run when empty, saving energy.
Third place went to Danish designer Christopher Holm-
Hansens Tastee, a digital spoon that indicates when
seasonings such as salt or sugar need to be added to a
dish. Arlene Hirst

Paper became a passion for
designer Irving Harper,
celebrated in a book from Rizzoli
cut and paste
In 1963, Irving Harper, director of design at George Nelson Associates and author of several of the 20th
centurys most evocative household artifacts, including the atomlike Ball clock (1948) and festive Marsh-
mallow sofa (1956), was a nervous wreck. He had been put in charge of the team designing the Chrysler
Pavilion for the 1964 New York Worlds Fair, and he was coping with an ambitious program, a tight
schedule, and high expectations.
Harper was looking for an activity to take his mind off the stresssomething repetitive and soothing
he could do at home in the evening. He considered taking up knitting or crocheting, but he also excelled
at building cardboard models for client presentations. One day, he split apart a bamboo window blind
and used Duco Cement to reconstitute the matchstick-size pieces into a flowing mask, which he set on
a carved wood pedestal.
For the next four decades, Harper made sculptures. He built them mostly out of paperboard but

also balsa wood, beads, straws, toothpicks, pinecones, telephone wire, twigs, dolls limbs and glass eye-
balls, Mylar sheets, Styrofoam lumps, and pieces of the ceramic clocks he designed for the Michigan-
based company Howard Miller. He scouted Manhattan art galleries and the Metropolitan Museum of
Art for inspiration and fashioned Egyptian cats and stylized antelope heads, Byzantine towers, African
masks, a Renaissance Florentine church in relief. He built constructions stacked like molecules and ab-
stractions that peeled off the picture plane like a grid of flames. He worked in the styles of surrealism
and de Stijl and made study after study of Pablo Picasso, the artist he admired above all others. On his
shelves, Guernicas suffering humans and horses mingled with crows, antelopes, and throned Egyptian
animal gods.
Nineteen sixty-three, his year of agita, was also the year in which Harper left the Nelson office, where
he had been working since 1947, and went out on his own. He disliked the hustle of running his own
business and soon formed a partnership with a fellow Nelson alumnus, Philip George, designing pri-
marily interiors for such clients as Braniff International Airways and Hallmark Cards. When Harper
retired, in 1983, his sculpture output stepped up. By the time he had built his last work, around 2000
a glass-eyed owl sheathed in brown paperboard feathers the collection approached some 300 pieces.
Harper stopped making art, he insists, because he ran out of room to display it in the old farmhouse in
Rye, New York, where he had been living for half a century.
Harper still lives in that house, surrounded by those pieces, in a gesamtkunstwerk of which he, at 96,
is not only the creator but also a central, vital component. Individually, the sculptures can be appreci-
ated for their charming translations of art historical masterpieces, their structural ingenuity, or their
deft expressions of color. They are arresting down to the hinge, piercing, or loop. Collectively, they form
a sumptuous catalog of one mans perambulations along the boulevards of 20th-century aesthetics.
Arranged in simple, bright rooms among primitive artworks and contemporary furnituremuch of
which are Harpers own prototypesthey testify to the playfulness and omnivorous cultural appetites
of the eras great modernist designers. No less than the Charles and Ray Eames house in Pacific Palisades,
California, the Harper interior is eclectic. Permeated with a calm sense of artistic adventure, it reflects
lives joyfully lived.
I never sold any of my pieces, Harper says today. I had all the money I wanted. Then I would have
lost my sculptures and just had more money. I just wanted to have them around.

His wife, Belle, died on December 22, 2009, after 69 years of marriage. Today, Harper lives alone in his
art-filled house. The third-floor studio looks untouched from the days when he meticulously assembled

by a ritualistic craft that also required imaginative problem-solving. A reproduction of Guernica is
tacked to a slanting wall, near a composition by Harper that has similar elementscontorted positions,
cubist perspective, a dynamic mass of figures and abstractions. A photo of a young Elizabeth, his
daughter, playing the violin is posted above a picture of Irving in his late 30s or early 40s. He has thick,
dark eyebrows and a crewneck shirt and looks somewhat strained and bemused in the manner of
George H.W. Bush.
Its amazing that I dont have the slightest desire to do them anymore, he says in his light-flooded
living room, where he spends most of his time reading, listening to music, and appreciating his hand-
work. He recently recalled for Herman Miller editorial director Sam Grawe the days before he had turned
the room into a modernist tableau. I remember I had a circular saw in the living room, and I was building
this counter around the room, and I was living here for the time being. I didnt have any things on my
own to decorate it with and hadnt bought any accessories. So George [Nelson] came by and he looked
at all these blank spaces and this blank counter and said, Theres nothing here. I dont know if he
meant that as a form of flattery. I rather doubt it. Too bad he cant come by and take a look at it now.

Furch Gestaltung

reinvents the
bottle rack at
Weinhandlung
Kreis in Stuttgart,
Germany
No wonder there was a problem with
theft at Weinhandlung Kreis, a wine
shop in Stuttgart, Germany. Displaying
bottles upstairs while storing them
downstairs often meant no eye on the
door. (Not to mention a lot of legwork
fetching the goods.) Then the owner,
Bernd Kreis, landed a coveted store-
front in a travertine-clad 1950s build-
ing across from the Altes Schlossa
castle hailing from the 10th century,
when Stuttgart drew more breeders
of horses than connoisseurs of the
best local Riesling or French caber-
net franc.
Among other perks ideal for wine,
easily damaged by direct sunlight, the
storefronts windows were shaded by
an arcadewith a mosaic ceiling, to
boot. Less ideal, the space was again
divided between ground level and
basement. But Kreis swore, this time,
storage would not be confined to the
cellar or even a separate room. That
was our starting point, Furch Gestal-
tung + Produktion design architect
Philipp Dittus says.
For Dittus and Matthias Furch,
who had designed the tasting room
at another Weinhandlung Kreis loca-
tion, the other major concern was
capacity. The
750-square-foot
new space would
have to contain
Custom modules in powder-
coated steel wire can both

idx130301_fg 241 3/6/13 8:54:55 PM
not only a tasting room but also three
rooms capable of storing and selling
1,200 types of wine, strictly European
vintages. The in-
terior was so tiny
we were a bit upset
when we first saw
it, Furch admits.
And that was before Kreis said,
OK, fit in 12,000 bottles of wine.
Space-hogging traditional oak
shelving was consequently ruled
out. We quickly realized that all
those bottles didnt leave us much
interior . It would have to be pure
wine, only wine, Furch explains.
So we came up with this very fine
wire frame. The 20-inch-square
modules allow four types of bottles
to be stowed while stacking all the
way up to the ceilings, now exposed.
Staff use a library-style rolling ladder
to reach the highest bottles.
The wire modules are powder-
coated 21 colors in a rainbow palette
that stands out against flooring in off-
white epoxy and walls and ceilings in
porous black lime plaster. Upstairs
modules are yellow, reddish. Down-
stairs is more purple, bluish, Dittus
says. To direct customers to a requested
wine, staffers indicate a rack color
an imprecise method likely to require
searching, hence more sales.
Modules were prefabricated, then
screwed together on location with
bent steel connectors. In our naive
imagination, we pictured a crazy welder
moving into the shop for a month and
welding the heck out of it, Furch notes.
But the system needed to be very
pre cise, with bottles aligned perfectly
underneath one another. Only robots
could do this. The final step was to
fit the front of most modules with
small stainless-steel shelves to dis-
play upright bottles, labels facing out
to indicate whats stored behind.
Windows on the ground level
of the 1950s building take in
a 10th-century castle.

Storing gives way to pouring in the
tasting room, where customers can ei-
ther stand at the bar or sit on a wrap-
around window seat. Sheathing the
seat is black rubber more commonly
used as flooring. Its more durable
than leather and feels nice and soft,
Furch says. It also muffles sound and
reduces breakage.
In lieu of tables for rest-
ing the wine glasses, trays
likewise wrapped in black
rubber slide back and forth
along the window seat.
Single-bottle, stainless-steel
shelves attach with hinges to
the storage-display modules.
They, in turn, are joined with
anodized steel connectors.

Theyre guided by two rails that simul-
taneously supply electrical current to
the small white table lamp screwed to
each traya cordless setup that allows
for maximum flexibility. You can move
the trays around and take them away,
Dittus says. And if you touch the rails?
The voltage is so low. Nothing happens,
Furch says. You can even put your
tongue on it. He checked.

Capturing the work of others, as
an architectural photographer, Filip
Dujardin realized that hed rather
construct something of his own
while sticking to the medium he
knows best. He takes pictures of very
real buildings found in such locales
as Portugal, France, and his native
Belgium, then recongures the
structures as pure ction via digital
collaging. The results are expression-
ist amalgamations of roofs, walls,
windows, and doors, whether mod-
ern or medieval.
If you were in San Francisco re-
cently, you might have caught his

Students at Denmarks IBC International
Business College get schooled in organizational
management, professional development, and
the finer points of entrepreneurship. As for
learning about creative business practices and
the impact of design on the workplaceit
turns out that IBCs annex, aka the innovation
factory, is an object lesson. Constructed in
1978 in the center of the port city of Kolding,
the building originally housed manufacturing
and administrative facilities as the headquar-
ters of GORI, a maker of paints, stains, sealants,
and other wood finishes.
The two-story, 138,000-square-foot struc-
ture was revolutionary at the time, its remark-
ably open plan commingling executive and production departments. Equally forward-thinking was the compa-
nys belief that incorporating leisure activities and fine art into the office environment would boost morale and
productivity. Ping-Pong tables and badminton courts flanked the double-height manufacturing hub, where bot-
tling tanks were painted with colorful geometric compositions by a Parisian artist associated with Jean Arp and
Sonia Delaunay. And those tanks remain as the focal point of the buildings new use.
Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architectss transformationfrom groundbreaking factory to enlightened education
facilityinvolved a dose of serendipity, John Lassen explains. After GORI was bought out, and its new parent
company moved production away, Koldings mayor enlisted IBC president Jrgen Houmann to help sell the
property. Houmann already knew it very well: He happened to have been GORIs CEO when the headquarters
was built. Once he started touring it with prospective buyers, touting its unique features, he got to thinking,
Why are we not moving here ourselves? So he snapped it up. Jrgens right back where he started! Lassen
says with a laugh. So, to some extent, is the architect. Having completed IBCs main building, he was hired to
implement a simpatico design at the annex.
This building is very famous in Scandinavia, Lassen continues. It was one of the first to be constructed of
laminated wood beamsthe structure is fabulously simple. It was also one of the first open-plan spaces in Den-
mark. He sought to preserve the aura of expansiveness as well as original factory elements that spoke to its new
purpose as an incubator of business innovation. Many of those features were simply cleaned. The geometric-
painted tanks and the Douglas fir facade were left untouched. All that wood allowed GORI to use the building
itself as a laboratory, he notes. Every time they developed a new sealant, they tested it on the exterior.
Inside, Lassen adds, the Douglas fir was a very soft wood for the factory workers to look at. Thats now

even more true for IBCs rotating cast of stu-
dents, professors, and guest lecturers, thanks
to his dramatically angular intervention in the
double-height volume at the heart of the build-
ing. Defining programmatic spaces, a canted
plane of Douglas firtreated with lye and oil
to look etherealdoubles as the roof of an au-
ditorium and the ramp up to an open seminar
venue. This large auditorium and a smaller
one, both raked, rise from a long reflecting
pool that acts as a sort of connective tissue.
Floating over the water between the audito-
riums, a Douglas fir platform serves as an
impromptu hangout spot.
An ambient trickling, which muffles other
sounds, emanates from the meditative pool. It can also take on a more dynamic look, courtesy of color-changing
LEDs and a pump that can raise the water level and create geyser-esque fountains. Ive been there during big
parties, with the ripples of colored water reflected on the ceiling. Its pretty fantastic, Lassen says. Reflections
in the mirrored structural columns reiterate the aqueous vibe.
Screening the pool from a row of glass-fronted classrooms, planters sprout leafy bamboo shoots. Delight-
fully, exotic songbirds inhabit a pair of aviaries between the planters, while a green wall anchors the pools far
end. And coaxing in precious Scandinavian sunshine are two runs of existing skylights. Lassen complemented
them with a stretched ceiling system. A double-layered composition of canted triangles, downlit by moodily
glowing LEDs, caps the auditoriums and much of the surrounding space. We discussed for a long time how we
should address the ceiling. We considered all the usual treatments, Lassen recalls. Then I saw a Swiss museum
that used this system, and I said, Wow, I think that is the idea. Hiding ventilation, sprinklers, and other mechan-
icals as well as improving acoustics, the membranes are furthermore removable if access to said mechanicals is
neededor if the buildings gets yet another new lease on life, way down the line.

Robert Rauschenberg was a man of big ideas. Creating art from scavenged materials
and masterfully mixing mediapainting, sculpture, printmaking, set and costume
design, even musical compositionhe became a seminal figure in 20th-century art,
propelling the transition from abstract expressionism to pop art and later movements.
Many people know his pioneering silk-screens, collages, and combines. Few people,
however, are familiar with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, which he established
in 1990 and oversaw until his death in
2008. Even fewer have been inside the
New York headquarters. Open only to
researchers, curators, and the occa-
sional journalist, this hidden zone offers
a glimpse into how he lived and worked.
What started out as a redbrick and
brownstone five-story town house ac-
quired its Renaissance revival style after
being sold in 1889 to the Mission of the
Immaculate Virgin for the Protection of
Homeless and Destitute Children, which
was running the next-door orphanage,
St. Josephs Union, and needed offices
and living quarters for the staff. Though
the orphanage eventually moved away,
the mission continued to occupy the
house and a chapel annex until Rausch-
enberg bought them in 1965. He made
the property his full-time residence and
workplace until the early 1970s. Thats
when he bought the compound on Cap-
tiva Island, Florida, that would become
his primary home and studio for the
rest of his life.
A center of scholarship and philan-
thropy, the foundation is definitely
not a mini museum or a white-cube

gallery. The Dickensian orphanage
vibe hasnt changed. As the founda-
tions executive director, Christy Mac-
Lear, explains, Its a project space,
refined enough to present things but
with a feeling of grittiness. Theres a
sense of Bob in all these spaces.
Examples of Rauschenbergs less
commercial work, including gossamer
silk-screens on fabric, an extension
of his 1980s costume designs for the
Trisha Brown Dance Company, are
displayed throughout, along with
more recognizably Rauschenberg-ian
prints and assemblages. A long room
on the ground level most resembles
a public art gallery, with changing
displays. Recently, it was hung with
mixed-media works from three late
Rauschenberg series: Scenarios, Short
Stories, and Runts.
The space behind the gallery is the
most dramatic: the soaring, sunlit
chapel, already cut in half when
Rauschenberg arrived but with its
Gothic-inspired windows and golden
paneling mostly intact. After buying
the property, he had the altar decon-
secrated and removed and added
a skylight to bring in the sunshine
necessary for an art studio. (Its much
brighter today, as a neighboring
building was later torn down.) Just
outside the chapel-studio, Rauschen-
berg kept paints and inks and other
supplies in the former sacristys cup-
boards and drawers. They still bear the
labels of the priests garments once
stored therefrom chasubles to albs.
A former second-floor drawing room
at the front of the town house contains
desks. At the rear is Rauschenbergs
bedroom, now a conference room
One of Rauschenbergs late mixed-media
works greets visitors in the main gallery.

where a large piece from his Salvage series accompanies classic modern furnishings.
A glass display case holds small treasures from his personal collection, including 13-year-
old cookies that bear portraits, in icing, of musician David Byrne, art critic Robert Hughes,
and domestic diva Martha Stewartparticipants in Synapsis Shuffle, Rauschenbergs
interactive exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
The eat-in kitchen, still functional, is as monastic as in Rauschenbergs day. Bob
wasnt interested in anything resem-
bling a formal dining room or living
room, senior curator David White sug-
gests. Theres not much to the kitchen,
save a few chairs gathered around a
wooden table and an ancient-looking
cast-iron stove with tangles of gas pipes
wrapping its blackened front.
Adjoining the kitchen, a onetime
refectory has become a gallery with
various Rauschenberg constructions
displayed alongside potted plants and
an Egyptian sarcophagus bought during
his 1970s trip to the Middle East. For
Bob, everything was fuel for art, White
notes. Even the apples from the small
grove of trees planted on the roof:
Rauschenberg cast the cores in gold,
silver, and bronze.
The building perfectly captures an
artistic vision, but the foundation is also
looking toward the future. Interior De-
sign Hall of Fame member Annabelle
Selldorf, who last year transformed a
foundation-owned warehouse into a
satellite project space, will be consulting
on an organizational revamp of the
headquarters as wellMacLear has no
specifics now. Its like living in a house
before you renovate it, she suggests.
Well figure out what we need as we
go. Without erasing Rauschenbergs
indelible fingerprints.
Left, clockwise from top left: A Native
American leather artifact. One of Rauschen-
bergs metal assemblages. Shepard Faireys

Opposite top: A Rauschenberg work
incorporating fabric dominates a conference
room. Opposite bottom, from left: The
kitchen, with its cast-iron stove, remains

Between the windows in a gallery stands an
Egyptian sarcophagus that Rauschenberg
found on a trip to the Middle East.

Building Seagram
by Phyllis Lambert
New Haven: Yale University Press, $65
320 pages, 193 illustrations (52 color)
The history of the New York building that many, including this writer, consider the
masterpiece of 20th-century architecture is related here by the person who knows
the story best and was largely responsible for its genesis: Phyllis Lambert, daughter
of Seagram president Samuel Bronfman. When she was a 27-year-old artist living
in Paris, her father sent her an early scheme for the Seagram Building as conceived by Pereira & Luckmanand likened
by Architectural Forum to a cigarette lighter. Horried, she wrote him back, This letter starts with one word repeated
very emphatically NO NO NO NO NO. He then sent for her to return and nd another architect, a long process ending
in the prescient choice of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
Lambert became director of planning for the project, and Mies offered Philip Johnson a role in the design. Later
chapters reveal Miess methodical mind while describing the relationship between the tower and the plaza; the choice
of bronze, bronze-tinted glass, dark green marble, and travertine; and the many threats to the plans
integrity. For one, Bronfman suggested the plaza be changed into something more protable.
As Miess chief assistant, Gene Summers, described the crisis, Bronfman comes in and says lets
put a bank there. Mies about died. Other chapters focus on Johnsons interiors and Lamberts
art choices for the plaza, which remained. She closes by recollecting the euphoria of the days
when the building was under construction, and she would stride down Park Avenue in
Seven League Boots, knowing what a wonderful thing we were doing.
Stanley Abercrombie
Museum of Islamic Art: Doha, Qatar
by Sabiha Al Khemir and Philip Jodidio
240 pages, 200 illustrations
Recent travels have taken Jack Lenor Larsen to Renzo Piano Building Workshops
addition to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Tod Williams Billie
Tsien Architectss new home for the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, and
James Carpenter Design Associates and Efrat-Kowalsky Architectss enhanced
Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Ive been reading up on these projects, trying to
figure out why they are so good, the textile
legend says. The answer is that old museums competed with the art, whereas
these enhance it. A visit to Doha, Qatar, likewise convinced him that the Museum
of Islamic Art there is Pei Partnership Architectss crowning achievement. Former
museum director Sabiha Al Khemir and art critic Philip Jodidios book, Larsen
adds, captures the splendor of the building, which also features interiors by
Wilmotte & Associs. Luminous photography shows such splendors as a 30-
foot-high wall of black granite and a selection of the most treasured holdings.
The latter of which include, of course, rugs.

In snowy January, the four partners at Situ Studio rented a 24-foot truck and drove out to nd
boardwalks hit by superstorm Sandy from the Rockaway Peninsula in New York, down to Atlantic
City. Equipped with crowbars, screw guns, hammers, and saws, the partners disassembled the
torn-up boardwalks, piece by painstaking pieceno easy feat in midwinter but key to winning
the annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design competition, which invites emerging New York
rms to submit proposals for a temporary installation in one of the worlds most public places.
Situ Studio used the salvaged ipe two-by-fours to produce Heartwalk, turning destruction into
creation and commemorating the groundswell of community love in the wake of the storm.
Two boardwalks intersected to create a herringbone entry platform, then diverged and swooped
upward to form a 4 -foot-high heart-shape enclosure with a slatted oor lit from below by red
LEDs. Standing on the glowing decking, visitors felt embraced by a pair of encircling arms. The
detritus of tragedy became a thing of warmth and beauty: a big idea, with a big heart.
