A renowned landscape architect Alexandre Grivko heard about the project and was instrumental in their design.
In 2015, Alexandre Grivko and his talented team of architects recreated the historical landscape. Les Jardins d’Étretat expanded their borders, hosted new objets d’art and were given new life.

Etretat Gardens appear to have no beginning or end. They comprise different components united by one idea.
The graphics and perfect architecture can be seen from any viewpoint.
These are futuristic gardens, working with dimensions of live sculptures and streamlined forms, as if borrowed from the nature of the Normandy coast itself.
The first part, the Garden of Avatar, welcomes visitors and takes them to a magical land where you can imagine yourself a character from Avatar or Alice in Wonderland.
Intertwined here are the roots of century-old trees and plants nurtured by gardeners (holly ilex aquifolium, osmanthus burkwoodii and osmanthus heterophillus).
Life was created by nature; the philosophical and extraordinary gardens of Etretat have been shaped by man.
The Power Garden symbolises the movement of the ocean. The images of rising and ebbing tide, waves and whirlpools have been skillfully sculpted from Phillyrea angustifolia shrubs to rise in waves or descend in spirals, framed by blue Agapanthus africanus.
Here, you can enjoy the most spectacular view of the Aval Cliff and the famous needle protruding from the ocean.
Garden of Emotions and Bottom of the Ocean.
You can see how Enkianthus japonicas (imported from Japan) and Buxus sempervirens have been cut to represent shells of mollusks, recreated in honor of Etretat’s oyster farm, well-known since the 18th Century.
The impression is complemented by unique rubber sculptures made by Spanish artist Samuel Salcedo, depicting faces of people experiencing an intense range of emotions.
Tree Huggers’ Garden. In this sculpture composition by Wiktor Szostalo, people line up to hug the last tree on Earth. The project was conceived in 2005 and has since travelled around the world. Through a variety of images, the artist calls for the protection of nature. The sculptures were made with materials found in parks, including dried stems.
Wiktor has created various characters for different countries; for France, he fashioned a sculpture of Claude Monet painting the sunset at Etretat – “Soleil Couchant à Etretat”. The artist appears to be looking on from a huge ship and painting the ocean with large strokes. Monet’s masterpiece, like Etretat Gardens, should be viewed from different distances and angles.
The founder of the garden, Madame Thébault, in 1907 assembled rare species of orchids that symbolized concubines in sultan Suleiman’s harem, where every “flower-concubine” expressed its special beauty and temper.
While taking care of it, she got into Roxelana character, who had eclipsed her husband’s power (sultan). As the result, Madame Thébault got international prominence in cinema.
Since, garden and villa were named Roxelane (the first name of the garden). Whole of Madame Thébault’s orchids are collected nowadays.
The Parnassus Garden incarnates Alabaster Coast of Normandy. Plants create a rock layers pattern of the cliffs. The mythological “Parnassus” is a tribute to the sacred mountain on top of which muse of art dwells, giving an inspiration to Garden’s guests.
Inspired by famous Etretat cliffs, Claude Monet wrote his painting series “Les Falaises à Étretat”.
This famous canvas was painted on one of Etretat Gardens’ terrace in 1886 and now is a part of Shchukin’s eminent collection exhibited in Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.
In 2016, Polish artist Wiktor Szostalo (www.facebook.com/wiktor.szostalo) installed at this place a monument to the impressionist who is working on the famous paysage. Take a look at spectacular view from Etretat Gardens through Monet’s eyes!

Sasha Frolova (b. 1984) lives and works in Moscow. On a different level, Sasha Frolova is known as the former student and now a female artistic counterpart to
Andrey Bartenev – the celebrated artist and eccentric arbiter elegantiae of the alternative fashion world in Russia. In
2014 Sasha Frolova won the AlternativeMiss World competition in London .

Adriana Sassoon Design & Team Building The Art of Simple Living

Sometimes we have to give up the Artist the Perfectionist personality ” The Dreamer” without loosing the Vision of the essence of the dream in order to deliver what’s asked in reality by the consumer demands. Not everyone wants the ultra modern architecture or design .

Perhaps…. Maybe they don’t even know what it means!

Each individual evolve differently, but since I am an investor and real estate developer, I’m still a Designer .

But I also have a niche to supply this specific demand. I’m not going to let someone else take my business opportunity to supply what’s asked of me.

Maybe one day the same person who bought one of my projects will come back requesting the futuristic, edgy design aesthetics that I can deliver through my work and visionary mind.

At least I know I can make my customers happy at the moment.

That’s called #Gratitude

Thank you !!!!!!

This groundbreaking 3D printing technology, developed by the MIT Self-Assembly Lab + Swiss Designer Christophe Guberan, will be co-presented at Design Miami by the Patrick Parrish Gallery and swissnex Boston.

The technology is a futuristic manufacturing facility based on Rapid Liquid Printing, a breakthrough 3-D printing technology developed in collaboration with Steelcase, which can rapidly produce objects of almost any size or shape using a robot and a tank of gel.

The space serves as a manufacturing facility in which a robot instantly prints tote bags and art objects inside a glass tank of translucent gel. After printing, each product is removed, cleaned, and put on display.

https://youtu.be/5M_tpiiYGxk

This exhibit is the first public demonstration of MIT’s rapid liquid printing technology.

Rapid liquid printing can produce large-scale objects out of high-grade materials like rubber, foam, or plastic in a matter of seconds or minutes by “drawing” them in a gel suspension.

Traditional 3-D printing is restricted by slow speeds, scale constraints, and poor material quality, which makes it unreliable as a mainstream manufacturing process. With rapid liquid printing, manufacturing can be reimagined as an artistic experience unlimited by scale or gravity, asking us to rethink design, production, uniformity, and product life-cycles.

Experiments

A strong attraction for the different materials and their intrinsic features has always guided my work as a designer. I have decided to dedicate a few years to research on materials. My intent is to try and rethink the way materials are used, as well as the production processes, using the possibilities made available by the new technologies.

To me, those technologies (Computer Numerical Controlled machines, 3D printers) are an integral part of the creative process. I like the idea of hijacking the use of those complex machines, to turn them into manual experimenting tools. I favor an instinctive approach, working more on hardware than software. The primary aim of my research is to produce knowledge, to generate new aesthetics. When working on a process, I try to explore it in depth, in order to create a rich repertoire of shapes and possibilities. This inventory then nourishes my world as a designer.

Implementation comes only after research, in particular through collaborations with companies, that see potentialities in my work to develop a product.

Design Miami 2017 Unveiling Audi A8L 55

sits at the vanguard of the changing auto industry with its hybrid powertrain assist as standard equipment and a laundry list of production-vehicle firsts.

The biggest design change appears inside the cabin, where Audi’s MMI infotainment system trades its large control knob and best-in-the-business interface for a second touchscreen at the front of the center console.

The fourth-generation A8 will introduce drivers to a truly active suspension, a 48-volt primary electrical system, and—in select markets—Level 3 autonomy by which Audi becomes the first automaker to sanction hands-free, Facebook-’til-your-face-melts driving.

My Passion for cars it’s obvious. Love for speed !

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.
