A beautiful piece of architecture built in Australia. The attention given to the details actually makes this building surreal. The design takes advantage of a view of the Pacific Ocean and is based on ‘openness’ and accessibility.
The Glasshouse: Arts Conference and Entertainment Centre hosts a 600-seat performing arts theatre, a 600m2 Regional Art Gallery, a studio theatre, conference facilities and a community workshop located in the centre of Port Macquarie, a fast-growing coastal city north of Sydney.
The project brief was to establish the Cultural Centre as the pre-eminent performance and exhibition arts facility in the region.

motion code: blue, which is an industrial design studio with emphasis on yacht design, has enhanced its areas of operation by another design discipline; they offer architectural concepts and its development until implementation planning.
The studio has just finished their reference project: a Taiwanese shipyard was designed, planned and visualized.
Outgoing from an existing u-shaped hall and production building for motor yachts, the studio has the task from its customer to add an office building, green and recreational spaces as well as a showroom in a very representative and modern way, inspired by contemporary European architecture. Part of the briefing was also that the yard should get strong landmark-like characteristics.
The office building was designed as an elongated and elevated element which closes the u-shaped halls optically as well as for a floating appearance.
Hal Ingberg, architect and artist, is well known for his installations with colored and reflective glass. He had to create a dynamic piece of public art in the National Capital Region of Canada, entitled Papa . The structure is composed out of colored glass panels that light up an interesting intersectin.
From Inberg himself:
My hope is that Papa will enable residents and visitors to share a dynamic experience at both the scale of the automobile and that of the individual- a visual happening that if only momentarily, returns us to a child’s capacity for wonder.
It’s been a while since we really seen something truly utopian here at Archtopia. So this post might please your curious side of the brain since the concept behind this facade is a neat and “alive” one. The design is created by architect Giselbrecht + Partner ZT GmbH and the amazing project is called “Dynamic Facade” better known as the Kiefer Technic Showroom in Bad Gleichenberg, Austria. The following images can give you a more clear vision upon what the modern architecture can and will do.
The latest creation of the brilliant team Herzog & de Meuron recently opened VitraHaus. The following images are the work of the french photographer Julien Lanoo. Over the years the Vitra Campus has become an architecture museum, featuring works by the most renowned architects: Frank Ghery, Zaha Hadid, Alvaro Siza, Tadao Ando, Jean Pruvé, Nicholas Grimshaw, Buckminster Fuller and SANAA (under construction)
The five-storey building – situated on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany – has been constructed to showcase the furniture brand’s Home Collection.
Over the past few years Vitra has aquired a wide-ranging Home Collection. The quantity and variety of objects by many different designers led to the idea of building a showroom to present the items to the public.
There would also be additional space to be used as an exhibition venue for selected parts of the collection or even as an extension of the Vitra Museum itself. A shop, a cafe linked to the outside and conference rooms complete the program.
