Tomek Michalski’s contemplative forest cabin

Polish designer Tomek Michalski makes his debut into the architectural world with a design for a remote cabin in the forest. Having a polygonal shape, this seems to minimize the physical impact the cabin has on its surroundings, the cabin can easily fit 2-3 people in comfortable conditions and at the same time hide them from the elements. Large windows, plywood interior makes the surrounding forest become one with the interior.

The ground level contains a living area, kitchen, and bathroom while a ladder provides access to the second-story bedroom, which has a dramatic sloping roof and vertical window at the head of the bed. The cabin serves as the perfect environment for contemplation and meditation, being constructed of the same material that makes up its vegetative home.

Modern Houses: Elliott Ripper House

This amazing house in Sydney, Australia is a project by Christopher Polly. The house counts for great mixture of open spaces and great interior design. The indoor/outdoor combination makes the whole place have a seamless transition between the two. The mix of wood floors, white elements and glass creates an elegant and charming space, certainly a great place to live.

Description from the architects: The project presents an appropriately simple and direct extrapolation of an existing archetypal form within a sustainably modest footprint. It provides a significantly expanded series of connected interior volumes that harness access to sunlight, ventilation and strengthened links to tree canopies and sky, with extension of key existing materials and finishes to retain some memory of its previous incarnation.

Archibet, Architecture from A to Z

Archibet, Architecture from A to Z

Archibet A to Z

Archibet is Federico Babina’s Illustrated Alphabet for Architecture.

Graphic Designer Federico Babina created a series of 26 detailed illustrations representing each letter of the Latin alphabet; each letter represents an iconic building of the 26 most prolific architects.

Entitled Archibet, the collection of images works its way through the alphabet from A to Z, so that each character is represented by an architect whose name starts (or ends) with the same letter.

Federico Babina started with Alvar Aalto’s Riolo Parish Church, before working his way through an assortment of buildings that include Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus school, Louis Kahn’s Phillips Exeter Academy Library and Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion.

The series concludes with Zaha Hadid’s Library and Learning Centre in Vienna, but also features Jørn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House, Oscar Niemeyer’s National Congress of Brazil and Gerrit Rietveld’s Schröder House.

As Babina describes his own project

Archibet

An alphabet is a standard set of letters which is used to write one or more languages based on the general principle that the letters represent phonemes of the spoken language.

Architecture is an “international language”, a system of communication. Its complex structure affords a wider range of possible expressions and uses.

The idea on which the Archibet project is based is to find a way to express through 26 illustrations the heterogeneity of forms and styles that make up the architecture.

Each letter is drawn according to the interpretation of an architect’s style. Each letter is a small surrealist architecture that becomes part of an imaginary city made up of different shapes and styles that speak the same language of architecture.
