Short stay in Vienna. This is first part. Lazy weekend in Schonbrunn Palace. Wonderful place with a lot of air and light there. It makes you desperately hunt for inspiration and film. The source of inspiration may not be made of matter.

While we follow the boys’ steps towards a promising future, we reconstruct the tumultuous and tragical life of their father. When his sons get confronted with some of the same challenges and problems as their father, history seams to repeat itself.

Recreating a figure from a Chinese painting in the gongbi style. Gongbi paintings are characterised by meticulous brushwork and highly coloured palettes.
Chinese ink is made in a solid form, and needs to be ground and mixed with water. A full-size line drawing, known in Chinese as huago, is made on paper with a brush and ink. The outline of the figure is carefully drawn.
A piece of silk is selected for its weave and texture. Raw silk is non-absorbent, so it needs to be treated in a process called sizing. A solution of glue and alum is used to make the ink pigments stick to the silk. The ratio of glue and alum must be carefully balanced. Too much alum makes the surface difficult to paint, but too little means that pigments will not adhere properly. The solution is spread with a flat brush. The silk is stretched over a board or stretcher with paste. When the treated silk has dried, it is ready for painting.
The silk is placed over the drawing and the lines are carefully traced with ink. The artist can change the weight of the line by varying the pressure. Because silk is thin, colour needs to be built up through a process called tuose. An even layer of paint is applied to the back of the work. White pigment is usually used. Darker pigment is used for the dark areas.
After the paint on the back has dried, the front is ready to be painted. First a base layer is painted. Colour pigments are prepared one by one. The painter carefully fills in the smaller areas. Two brushes are used to create colour washes. Layers of light wash are applied over painted areas until the artist gets the right tone. The process of building up colour and creating the right tone is painstaking and can take a long time. Fine details such as facial features and clothing patterns can now be added. The figure’s outline is accentuated with black ink or colour for the final time.

On the run up to the Stirling Prize, 2016, The Architect’s Journal takes a look into the six nominated buildings, with interviews from the architects.
At the heart of Oxford’s historic core, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s 1940s, Grade II listed, New Bodleian Library (now known as the Weston Library) is a vital resource for academic research. In 2006, WilkinsonEyre was appointed to refurbish the library as a new cultural and intellectual landmark. The idea was to open up the building to allow more public access and engagement in the activities happening inside. This included the creation of new spaces for a programme of exhibitions and seminars drawing on the extraordinary resources of the Bodleian’s collections.
The design works with, rather than against, Scott’s robust design, reinvigorating the space with an improved circulation diagram – for both book retrieval and user movement – and creating a number of contemporary interventions, including a spectacular reading room at roof level.

The Atlantic’s video series “Saturday Night in America” is about uncovering pockets of nightlife across the nation. This episode takes place in Austin, Texas, and profiles a pedicab driver, the owner of a honky-tonk bar, and members of a band called The Octopus Project. Despite a continuous influx of new people into the city, small bands who play live music have always shaped the culture. “Austin without music would just be a really boring college town,” says resident Sarah Yopp. “Local music here is, I think, the star of the city. Without music, Austin would die off.” The film was directed by Ben Wu and David Usui of Lost & Found Films.
Ruutu, which means diamond or square in Finnish, is a collection of 10 vases available in five sizes and seven colours. When collected and combined, they make small seamless installations where both the strength and the delicate nature of the glass come alive.
The fluidity and vibrant feel of the mouth blown glass creates the delicate character for Ruutu.
Ruutu in stores in January 2015.
