Hotel Daniel in Vienna – Thisispaper Magazine

Inspiration: It seems this hotel in Vienna has thought of everything. They’ve designed every little corner. Especially like the paper created by Mike Fuisz and Sabine Kembichler.

Sinking about type

Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham, reconstructed the 10-foot letters from the old Miami Orange Bowl and whimsically scattered around the east plaza of the new Marlins Ballpark. Created as a sort of memorial to the stadium that was demolished in 2008.

See-through church, Limburg/Belgium by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh

Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, a collaboration between young Belgian architects Pieterjan Gijs (Leuven, 1983) and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh (Leuven, 1983), have built a see-through church in the Belgian region of Haspengouw. The church is a part of the Z-OUT project of Z33, house for contemporary art based in Hasselt, Belgium. Z-OUT is an ambitious longterm art in public space project that will be realised on different locations in the Flemish region of Limburg over the next five years.

The church is 10 meters high and is made of 100 layers and 2000 columns of steel. Depending on the perspective of the viewer, the church is either perceived as a massive building or seems to dissolve – partly or entirely – in the landscape. On the other hand, looking at the landscape from within the church, the surrounding countryside is redefined by abstract lines. The design of the church is based on the architecture of the multitude of churches in the region, but through the use of horizontal plates, the concept of the traditional church is transformed into a transparent object of art.

Moving a logo forward.

Often we come across new logos that don’t excite us at first glance, but occasionally the logo grows on us when you see its application. Here is one example of the recently rebranded Museum of the Moving Image, New York.

The reference to the triangles on the building is nice.
