Interior architects and designers, as well as architects and hoteliers from across the board are guaranteed inspiration at this autumn’s edition of MAISON & OBJET in Paris. Beyond the fair, design takes centre-stage in a number of the city’s quarters, all part of the fifth outing of Paris Design Week, which runs from 5 to 12 September.

 

The Architonic team, as ever, will be on the ground, searching out the latest trends. Follow us live, so to speak, in the form of our Facebook photo tours. Or come and see us in person. Why not contact us now at info@architonic.com, to book a consultation regarding our range of services? Just let us know in advance what you’d like in particular to discuss and your desired appointment time, so we can respond to you in detail.

The romance and the drama of air travel, aided in no small part by the advent of the jet engine, has left its architectural legacy. Think iconic buildings like Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal at New York’s JFK, for instance. But along came the 747 and mass transportation by air led to, well, mass airport construction on the ground, not all of it good. Norman Foster’s 1991 Stansted Airport changed all that, its paradigm-shifting design blazing a trail for high-tech-architectural projects worldwide. Architonic takes to the skies to investigate.

Move over, infinity pool. There’s a new watery kid on the bathing block. A more natural take on outdoor swimming is developing as an international trend, one which allows bathing in even the most urban of contexts. What’s more, some of these new public pools are low on chemical agents, or even chemical-free, using plant life to clean them. Last one in’s a rotten egg!

Small is beautiful: Renzo Piano’s Diogene house prototype at the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany

He may have beaten records with his 310-metre-high Shard in London, the EU’s tallest skyscraper, but celebrated architect Renzo Piano’s diminutive Diogene house testifies to the merits of micro-architecture: space-saving, cost-efficient and sustainable.

MGA’s eight-storey Wood and Innovation Design Centre in British Columbia

MGA’s eight-storey Wood and Innovation Design Centre in British Columbia

A raft of new high-rise timber projects internationally are exploiting the potential that wood – an age-old, natural and robust building material – has to change the face of our cities. Wood is not only cost-effective to use, but, when compared to conventional reinforced concrete, environmentally friendly, emission-free and eminently sustainable.

Architexture

 

‘Frei stands for freedom, as free and as liberating as a bird in flight, swooping and soaring in elegant and joyful arcs, (…) and as compelling in its economy of line and in the improbability of its engineering as it is possible to imagine, giving the marriage of form and function the invisibility of the air we breathe, and the beauty we see in nature.’ The words of the Pritzker Prize jury on this year’s laureate, Frei Otto.

 

The highest accolade for architecture internationally will be awarded posthumously on 15 May to the German architect who made his name with the tented-roof construction of the Munich Olympic Stadium and can be regarded as the father of textile architecture. Which is why we’re exploring in our main feature the creative, functional and ecological possibilities of textiles use in contemporary projects.

 

And Architonic is developing its competence in textiles, too. Designtextiles.com, the portal that we’ve developed with seven high-end brands (currently all from the German-speaking countries), shows you the space-shaping and functional advantages of textiles in architecture, as well as their variety in terms of design. What’s more, Architonic has curated the exhibition ‘Textiled Spaces – Photography by Deidi von Schaewen’, which runs from 4 to 7 May at Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and non-wovens.
