High-rises from paradise
by Nina Müller | 29 December 2011

Green design goes really green: Singapore-based Woha architecture office develops visionary high-rises that not only exceed the customary standards for sustainable design, but are completely conquered by nature.

How green are your needles
How green are your needles
by Nina Reetzke | 16 December 2011

There was a time when it counted as a symbol of fertility and since the 16th century it has served as Yuletide decoration. The Christmas tree can hardly be topped in terms of symbolism – essentially it's become the Christmas logo per se. The "Oh Tannenbaum!" exhibition offers a range of radical versions.

Rendezvous with (Santa) Claus
15 December 2011

What will your Christmas be like? Candles burning? Do you like the scent of incense? Are there Christmas angels looking down from the mantelpiece? At Christmas everyone has their own idea of how to create the right atmosphere in their home. The artist Claus Richter loves it when there are little (flashing) lights everywhere. We paid him a visit in his personal Christmas paradise.

In a southern light
by Thomas Edelmann | 13 December 2011

What makes Miami a relevant location on the world design map? Is it the flair of "Miami Vice" with the summery villas, luxury yachts and all the naked skin? Definitely not, as today the Design Miami trade fair pulls the crowds with products by Jean Prouvé, presented close to buildings by Frank Gehry and Herzog & de Meuron.

by Michael Erlhoff | 11 December 2011

Ambiguity – between hot-dogs and high-rises
Ambiguity – between hot-dogs and high-rises
by Ralf Wollheim | 08 December 2011

In Berlin's villa quarter of all places, namely in Zehlendorf, or to be more precise at Haus am Waldsee, Graft Architects are just presenting their visionary-like installations and objects. Alongside converting Hotels Q and their "Phantom" table there are many unrealized projects on view. For example, the design for a temporary art gallery in Berlin that seems to float like a cloud over Schlossplatz.

The Couch. A typological construction
The Couch. A typological construction
by Thomas Wagner | 06 December 2011

Soft upholstery, cushions, sometimes with a frame around it – in the typology of the sofa there are less breaks than variants. And the potpourri that evolves as a result holds a great deal of charm.

Eminences in black and white
Eminences in black and white
by Nina Reetzke | 03 December 2011

Over a period of two years, Ingrid von Kruse photographed stars of the international architecture scene. A selection of these, portraits of celebrities such as Bjarke Ingels, Peter Zumthor and Oscar Niemeyer, is currently on show at Deutsches Architekturmuseum under the title "Eminent Architects".
