Smart Homes

Nico van der Meulen Architects gave the Kloof Road House a sculptural appearance. The idea of the flowing transitions is also found in the intentionally unobtrusive integration of the smart-home technology

Digital technology is becoming increasingly embedded in the architectural fabric of the home. Sometimes foregrounded, occasionally centre-stage, but mostly taking an almost invisible back-seat. (by Katharina Sommer)

Architonic Special Milano 2016

Architonic Special Milano 2016

Love it or hate it, you can’t ignore it. If it’s April, it’s Milan and the Salone del Mobile. Indisputably the world’s biggest and most-attended design fair – and that’s before you’ve factored in the various design districts and events of the Fuorisalone.

 

Impossible to cover in its entirety, groaning infrastructurally under the weight of the hundreds of thousands of international visitors who pour into the city, it offers business and creative reward to A&D professionals who are prepared to keep two different, and on the fact of it contradictory, strategies in place.

 

Number one: Plan. And then plan some more. Get yourself a copy of our indispensable Architonic Guide Salone del Mobile Milano 2016 (download it here!), and work out in advance of your trip how to navigate your way through Milan Design Week, efficiently and effectively. Don’t forget to stop off at the Brera Design District, the SuperDesign Show and Ventura Lambrate. Architects in particular will want to make for the inaugural space&interiors exhibition from MADEexpo, which will showcase the best in architectural materials. And for pure inspiration, catch Sou Fujimoto’s light-as-architecture installation for COS, ‘Only Light’.

 

Number two: Go with the flow. Embrace the chance encounter and the spontaneous invitation. Go off-piste and you might just meet someone who shifts your creative paradigm or changes your business thinking.

 

And here’s some breaking news: as part of our Architonic Trend Analysis series, we’ve just published our Top 200 Designers list, an unmissable ranking of the great and the good, based exclusively on our insider information – the results generated by our users’ active text searches on architonic.com.

Station To Station

Santiago Calatrava's World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York City is the world’s most expensive station, at a total cost of $4 billion. Shops will open later this year around the transit hall and concourses

Santiago Calatrava’s World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York City is the world’s most expensive station, at a total cost of $4 billion. Shops will open later this year around the transit hall and concourses

There has been a dramatic shift in the demands placed by public transportation on contemporary architecture since the turn of the millennium – the need to square the burgeoning of passenger numbers that attends the unstoppable march of urbanisation with a desire to deliver landmark projects, full of rhetoric and aspiration. Let’s take a trip. (by Alyn Griffiths)

The work of London-based design practice Doshi Levien celebrate a hybrid of different worlds, bringing together cultural diversity and showing the interplay between industrial design and traditional craftsmanship. Curious as ever to know about designers’ material choices, Architonic recently met up with Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien in Stockholm, where they presented ‘Material Interventions’ – a visual campaign for the new collection by Swedish flooring brand Bolon.
