Comments Off on Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects unveil designs for ARoS Aarhus Art Museum extension

As the original designers of ARoS in 2014, Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects sees Next Level as a continuation of their relationship with the museum. In 2011, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson added his “Your rainbow panorama,” a permanent ring-shaped installation that hovers above the museum roof. The new extension will add a 1,200-square-meter subterranean gallery and a gigantic semi-subterranean art installation named “The Dome” disguised as a nine-meter-tall grassy hill on street level. The architects describe the 40-diameter Dome, topped with a circular skylight, as “one of the most spectacular spaces ever built into an art museum.” Related: Twilight Epiphany Skyspace by James Turrell Suspends Time and Space With LEDs in Houston “The Next Level project will connect to the existing building developing the museum horizontally in contrast to the existing vertical movement and working with the natural flow of the city from the river to the square of the Aarhus Music Hall,” say the architects in a press release. “This references the main architectural concept of the museum building which created a public route through the museum that transforms the building into a bridge linking two of the city’s cultural centres.” The new extension will offer a new Turrell-designed experience of color and light to visitors as they make their way down into the galleries and exhibition spaces. The Next Level project will open to the public in 2020. + Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects + James Turrell Images via Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects

EcoCasa Suyana is an sustainable, open-source home project in Argentina

Comments Off on EcoCasa Suyana is an sustainable, open-source home project in Argentina

EcoCasa Suyana is a project lead by a couple of young engineers and travelers that is the first ecological, economical and 100% open-source home in Argentina. Suyana means “hope” in Quechua language and idea of EcoCasa Suyana project is to build a green, sustainable, affordable home, that can be a model for the construction of community housing . The concept was created by Noa and Cristian, a couple who decided to change their life nine months ago. They sold their few possessions in Buenos Aires and began a trip in Latin America. During their trip, they discovered social and environmental problems that appeared to have an easy solution given the right materials and know-how. Noa and Cristian realized that “in order to improve the quality of life and reduce the impact on the environment, we need to bring together various sustainable technologies and practices into one place: in a house that can be visited and serve as an inspiration for better housing.” Each stage will be documented and the project will be 100% open source in order to share the information with people in need. The design can be adapted depending on the climate, population and the materials available in order to adapt the model to other locations. + Fund EcoCasa Suyana + Follow Cristian and Noa The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Aromatherapy pyramid releases natural cedar scent into your space

Comments Off on Aromatherapy pyramid releases natural cedar scent into your space

Designer Anatoliy Omelchenko of Triangle Tree, whose crop circle towels we featured a couple of months ago, has created a new, eco-friendly piece of home decor: the Cedar Aroma Pyramid . When warmed by a simple tea light, the natural oils in the cedar wood  are released, filling the space nearby with a relaxing woodland scent. There are no added chemicals or fragrances; just cedar, warmed by flame. Like most of Anatoliy’s other creations, this aromatherapy piece is incredibly elegant in its simplicity—simple, basic shapes that snap together rather than being held by glue or screws. When the oils on one side of the pyramid have been burned off, it can be rotated or flipped to expose new wooden surfaces to the flame. + Cedar Aroma Pyramid The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
