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.
Lost In Kyrgyzstan / Our Video Travel Guide –> bit.ly/2cZuS1z
Sara Izzi and Timur Tugalev, digital nomads and authors of the Travel blog The Lost Avocado.com document for the first time incredible country of Kyrgyzstan.
From Bishkek, Capital of Kyrgyzstan, to the dreaming sceneries of the lake of Song Köl, from Orto Tokoy, a reservoir of turquoise water in the Kochkor District, up to Issik Kul, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and Karakol, with its canyons, wild parks and colourful markets.
The seams of the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, drawn by a gentle black pencil, the white sand that embrace alpine lakes lashed by the September breeze, create a magnificent sight that leaves you breathless.
We hope you enjoy the fascinating landscapes of Kyrgyzstan, a Central Asian gem yet to be discovered.
Lost in Kyrgyzstan filmed in 4K with a drone.

For architect Ole Scheeren, the people who live and work inside a building are as much a part of that building as concrete, steel and glass. He asks: Can architecture be about collaboration and storytelling instead of the isolation and hierarchy of a typical skyscraper? Visit five of Scheeren’s buildings — from a twisted tower in China to a floating cinema in the ocean in Thailand — and learn the stories behind them.

The hidden world of space junk.
Adrift is a short documentary that explores the hidden world of space junk. The film reveals an issue that is troubling and beautiful, dangerous and fascinating. It begins with the tale of astronaut Piers Sellers, who dropped his spatula in space in 2006, which became the most deadly kitchen instrument soon after, travelling at 27,000 km/h. The film then journeys across the remote deserts of Chile with astronomers of Collowara Observatory, into the skies, where threats to the International Space Station take place, and through to Thailand, where a man watches space debris burn. The film includes a narration by Vanguard, the oldest piece of space junk, voiced by Sally Potter (Dir Orlando).

Serif is a collection of screens, televisions, we designed for Samsung during the past two years.
Serif is a television that moves away from a preoccupation with ultra-flat screens. Instead, it is an object that can be turned around and manipulated. It can stand anywhere, even on the floor with its own legs. What we were looking for was a solid presence that would sit naturally in various environments, just like an object or a piece of furniture.
In profile, it forms a clear capital “I” shape, its slim body broadening to form a surface like a little shelf at the top.
We also designed the interface inside Serif.
Serif comes in 3 sizes, Serif, Serif Medium, and Serif Mini.
Serif and Serif Medium come with optional feet (that are included in the box).
3 colors are proposed, White, Dark blue and Red.
Crystal Houses, designed by MVRDV and located on P.C. Hooftstraat 94 in Amsterdam is a flagship store with a replica façade made entirely out of glass.

Crystal Houses won the category award for Shopping at the Word Architecture Festival as well as the Glass Innovation Award and the Public Award at the Dutch Design Awards. Crystal Houses, the movie was created by Robert Jan Westdijk for Warenar with the help of people and companies involved in creating Crystal Houses.
My debut film in aerial cinematography. The title translates into something like “air-angle” or “air-peaks” referring to the Dolomites grand rock towers reaching into the sky.
I shot this with a DJI Phantom 4 whilst also shooting timelapses as keystone of my business.

The video shows the relationship between architecture and the environment, the nature that surrounds it, the context in which it is located and how it reacts to different weather conditions.
It was filmed in India in July 2012 with a Canon 5D Mark II, and was part of the exhibition of the BSI Swiss Architectural Award 2012, which opened in September at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio (Switzerland).

I have been fascinated by Nepal since I was a kid. I was transfixed by the highest mountain in the world, Everest, but in time learned of what else the country had to offer. This fall I was I able to see it for myself.
The place I experienced with filled with kindness from the Nepalese people, an environment that stunned the senses and of mountains higher than my dreams could imagine as a child.
