The eight-story building has a black-and-white exterior and interior design details modeled after the Duomo di Siena’s bell tower in Italy and inspired by the location’s newsprint heritage. Maisonettes—first-floor residences with separate entrances, high ceilings, and patios—add a neighborly touch.

With luxe amenities and prices to match (junior one-bedrooms start at $650,000 for roughly 600 square feet; three-bedrooms run more than 2,000 square feet and start at more than $2 million), the Siena will herald a new era indeed.

描述:

The Sassoon brand has long been at the forefront of design, starting with their roots in the Bauhaus and continuing today with their unique teaching methods and styles. The challenge of setting the Shanghai school as the new standard for China and the world was one that Sassoon took very seriously, extending it all the way into green initiatives.
True to its philosophy, A00 Architecture required that the design be able to tell its own story. Both inside and out, the project needed to express cutting edge hairstyling, innovation and ecological responsibility. In order to achieve this the Architects centred their design around the concepts of Shear and Layers; working principles that are fundamental to both Architecture and Hairstyling.
This story is most well expressed by the sheared and highly layered rammed-earth wall marking the entrance of the Academy. Projecting from the building, it serves to engage the public in Sassoon’s culture, a priority that was carried through the design of the entire facade. Next to the rammed-earth is a pixel wall that flows with the wind, mimicking the subtle shifting of hair and inviting the public to take a closer look. Finally, the remainder of the facade is a massive sliding wall which reveals an auditorium, claiming the plaza in front of the Academy as its own public stage.
Designed to accommodate 60 students and staff, the Academy is located in a refurbished steel factory and uses a simple palette of materials: earth, bamboo ply, stainless steel, and aluminium panels. Openings carved out between the spaces are used to emphasise the concept of layering, both inside and out. Similarly, compound angles reflected by dozens of mirrors reinforce the concept of shear.
Now becoming ubiquitous, low to no VOC paints and finishes were used throughout the Academy, as well as LED and CFL lighting. Additionally, the Academy pioneered the use of a grey water system to pre-treat their discharge water.

WE’RE TURNING A NEW PAGE

BUILDING ON HISTORY

The six-acre site is the former home of the Boston Herald newspaper and has deep history as the New York Streets, a 24-acre, six-block area bordered by Washington, Albany, Herald and Dover (now East Berkeley) streets. The neighborhood housed a significant multi-ethnic working class from the mid 1800’s until the mid-1950’s when light industrial and commercial uses replaced the diverse residential neighborhood in the city’s first urban renewal project.


BOSTON Herald site  = Ink Block

MAKING NEW HISTORY

Ink Block is a return of this area to a vibrant live, work, play and shop neighborhood. It’s what we call Life South End Style. Ink Block is a vibrant mixed-use community with a brand new flagship Whole Foods Market and places to eat along the wide sidewalks of a reimagined Harrison Avenue. Above it all are 315 apartments in three unique and distinctive buildings. It’s why we say that the South End’s center of gravity has shifted toward Ink Block.

Reebok’s headquarters will feature an “alternative activity-based work zone,” with collaborative meeting areas, the company said. There’s also a fourth-floor work cafe, with grab-and-go food offerings and stadium bleacher seating for events.

These renderings show the fourth and fifth floors of 25 Drydock, a former military warehouse now known as the Innovation and Design Building. Reebok will occupy 220,000 square feet on five floors.

SEXUAL COLOR


Art exhibit Sexual Color by Gabriel Wickbold at No Borders for Design Showroom em Miami

Sexual Color

Photographic exhibition, research laboratory of images and interaction with people, re-reading of famous and sexy bodies. Choose one of these labels (or all at once) and apply on Sexual Color of Gabriel Wickbold, work scheduled to be shown in the second half of 2010, in New York. Pointing his lenses and projecting his pop light on a mixture of materials, organic or inorganic, onto human skin, the young, 25 year old photographer from São Paulo, reaches an unique way of seeing sexuality, covering to strip. He explains: ‘‘The paint is a protection and at the same time revealing. It covers a woman, but in character, reveals itself.’’ To achieve this effect, Brazilian personalities such as Adriane Galisteu, Fernanda Paes Leme, Didi Wagner, Natalia Rodrigues, Fernanda Souza, Adriana Bombom, Barbara Koboldt, and Carla Fiorito, undressed (the majority for the first time) and had their beautiful forms covered with chocolate, gouache, airbrush paint, synthetic hair, coconut vines, sand and makeup, not necessarily in that order. Dismissing stereotypes, Sexual Color reinvents and exports the Brazilian beauty in a format that you have never seen. Check it out and participate.

The project Sexual Colors is his maximum example. In it, women and men have their bodies intertwined in paints and threads in an explosion of colors, lights, transparency and details that reveal a true visual orgasm. For Gabriel, the atmosphere created by his images illustrates an extremely artistic eroticism. ‘‘Sexual Color is work that purely reflects sex art. It portrays everything i would like to perform in a nude photograph. Sexuality involves curiosity. It is no fun if it’s too explicit. Insinuating generates much more sex appeal then merely giving it away.’’
