ヴィトラ・デザインミュージアムで行われたフランク・ゲーリー展「Frank O. Gehry Since 1997」の様子。
Six celebrated architects, including Bjarke Ingels, Liz Diller and Daniel Libeskind, here talk about what it’s like to build architecture that both matters and works in the iconic city of New York – from Ground Zero to The High Line.
“A building should not look like Lady Gaga,” says American architect Robert A.M. Stern (b. 1939), who feels that the city is made up of background and foreground buildings, and that it is important to learn how to let the buildings work together instead of isolating them.
Danish architect Bjarke Ingels (b. 1974) stresses how important it is to care about and understand the people one is designing for: “Architects need to re-insert architecture as something that people are interested in – not just architects – something that is important for society.”
“In a sense it was a non-site without ground to stand on.” American architect and founding partner of Snøhetta, Craig Dykers (b. 1961), talks about the challenging experience of building the 9/11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at Ground Zero.
According to American architect Thom Mayne (b. 1944), architecture is essentially “a way of thinking, exploring, inventing, making and participating in the world.”
American architect Liz Diller (b. 1954) discusses her fascinating project The High Line, which is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated plus 30 feet above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side.
“People stopped me: ‘Thank you Mr. Libeskind. You delivered what you promised’. They didn’t say anything else. They shook my hand. I thought that was the best compliment I could get.” Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind (b. 1946) shares his personal story of getting to work on such a poignant project as Ground Zero.

Did you miss The Revolving Room during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013, then this is your opportunity to get a glimpse of it.
The Revolving Room was a special installation by acclaimed designer Patricia Urquiola to celebrate her first textile collection for Kvadrat on her new and existing products for Moroso.
‘The Revolving Room is based around constant cycles. Hypnotically circular and repetitious rhythm is emphasised by the oversized embroidered fabrics’, Patricia Urquiola states. The entrance of the installation was illuminated with Philips luminous textiles on Kvadrat Soft Cells, and inside the space a series of three-sided fabric panels slowly revolve creating a dynamic, abstract and vibrant environment that constantly change as the panels rotate.
The Revolving Room was awarded with the Milano Design Award for the best installation shown by international design brands during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013.
Far away from the surf business industry and competitions, Harrison was able to make a living out of his passion; surfing became his lifestyle. Every day, he drives alone for hundreds of miles and braves some of the most dangerous wildlife in the world, seeking the wave he would be the only one to ride. See his spiritual dialogue with the ocean.

During the summer of 2016, We created directed a video about unsatisfying situations: the frustrating, annoying, disappointing little things of everyday life, that are so painful to live or even to watch.
We quickly realized that there are a lot of other situations that would be fun to see animated, so we decided to run an animation challenge around this idea.
