In Gamlestaden, Gothenburg, an urban development project is now under way to create a new urban community and a travel centre. Did you know that we since 2012 have been responsible for planning a large share of the new area’s streets, light rail lines and public spaces? The pedestrian passageway at Gamlestadens Fabriker is the first public space to be completed. #sweco#swecoarchitects#architecturebysweco#wlam2018
Que dia lindo para estar no passeio! O Passeio Público está aberto das 9h às 18h, da tempo de caminhar antes do trabalho ou fazer aquele intervalo de almoço mais relax curtindo esse espaço verde no meio do caos central do Rio de Janeiro. 🌿☀️🌻 #opasseioépúblico
#Repost for #FeatureFriday thanks to @CBRE for the amazing picture. This twisting residential tower aimed to be as eco-friendly as it is visually provocative. Situated in the Xinyi District in Taipei, and designed by architect Vincent Callebaut, the two helicoidal towers will grow ample vegetation and have a photovoltaic pergola that transforms sunlight into electricity for the building.
“The arched passageway known as the #Beurspassage on Amsterdam’s Damrak has been turned into a stunning artwork by artist duo Arno and Iris (known for the ceiling art work Horn of Plenty in the Markthal Rotterdam) and Hans van Bentem. The eye-catching piece dazzles with the kind of prestige and splendorous detail typical of the listed buildings that lend Amsterdam its grandeur. With ornamental elements and colours that reference Western, Eastern and contemporary styles, the Beurspassage achieves harmony with the forms and styles of the surrounding buildings, from the graceful late 19th century details of the old stock exchange building, the Beurs van Berlage, to the shop windows along the Damrak and the Nieuwendijk.
The mosaic art adorning the barrel-vaulted ceiling, the chandeliers, the mirrored walls and the granite floor tell a visual story about Amsterdam and its canals, and about the relationship between humans and water.” - @urdesign .
