Angular Concrete House

This angular concrete and larch house blends seamlessly into a Tonsberg neighborhood in Norway.

The skillful integration of indoors and outdoors was the architects’ driving concept behind the design of this new house. The whole house, including the roof, is made to blend with the existing topography of the area.

Monday Morning Photo(s)

For today’s Monday Morning Photos, we have a look at the work of Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, who has created an installation in Paris’ Jardins des Tuileries composed of suspended metal cubes and plants, for the FIAC art fair.

A void in the center represents the “living area”, with formal entrances at either side and lots of other access points if “one doesn’t mind lowering their head,” said a statement from Fujimoto.

Frank Gehry for Louis Vuitton

To mark the opening of The Foundation Louis Vuitton, the French luxury house has commissioned one of our favorite architects, Frank Gehry to design their windows for Fall/Winter 2014-2015. A Pritzker Prize–winning architect, Gehry is to the world of structural design what Louis Vuitton is to the world of luxury and fashion. The Los Angeles based architect has lately been in news for designing the Louis Vuitton Foundation in the heart of Bois de Boulogne, Paris.

Here are a few images of the window displays, make sure to stop by your local Louis Vuitton store to check them out!

A series of curved metal structures inspired by the sailing and fishing boats as well the abstract works of the painter, Frank Stella will grace the windows of Louis Vuitton stores. Paying homage to the Canadian-American architect’s famous structures, these sail-themed windows will give an illusion of movement, as if they were floating in the wide open sea.

 He has also designed a bag that is essentially a rectangular box with a bit of a twist. Gehry added, “I think a curve is feminine, and it just adds a feminine touch. We made 10 variations, but they loved that one. We all did.”
