Ann Demeulemeester Store, Seoul, South Korea

Our love of vertical gardens is no secret, nor is it a secret that we have massive admiration for the Koreans. Put the two together and wow, you have an übercool vertical garden! The Ann Demeulemesster Store is hidden down an alley,  in Seoul’s Gangnam district. Primarily residential in the past, the neighborhood is undergoing a rapid transformation into an upscale commercial district full of shops and restaurants. The building is comprised of one subterranean level and three floors above. The Ann Demeulemeester store is located on the first floor, with a restaurant above and a basement Multi-Shop below. The brief was an attempt to incorporate as much nature as possible in a building within the constraints of a low-elevation, high-density urban environment D★D READ MORE

The city of Ordos, nestled upon the stretching sandy deserts plains of Inner Mongolia, is home to a dramatic new museum. Designed by Chinese über-architectural firm MAD, the project was first envisioned six years ago, in the then-desert wilderness of Inner Mongolia. The municipal government of Ordos commissioned MAD to design a museum for the then unbuilt metropolis. Amidst the controversy surrounding the planned city, it became evident that the museum for Ordos must navigate the many contradictions that emerge when local culture meets with visions of a future city. Drawing on the image of  “the ever rising sun on the grassland” the Ordos Museum’s polished metal facade rises fluidly over the new city. Ordos – along with its museum – has been in development over the last six years, evolving from a rural culture to a glistening nod towards a futuristic vision.Located in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, the Ordos Museum is a crossroads for a community working to interpret its local traditions in a new urban context. Inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s “Manhattan Dome” The museum was commissioned by the municipal government of Ordos in 2005. V★P  READ MORE
