Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

Chalmers University of Technology is a Swedish university located in Gothenburg that focuses on research and education in technology, natural science and architecture. One building stands out amongst a sea of innovative design in the heart of their campus that is quite impossible to miss. Inspired by the Italian Renaissance, colorful geometric shapes adorn the outer facade creating a piece of functional art. The interior has ample floor space as the upper levels project over the lower. As a result, the building partially shades itself on sunny days. Eco-conscious to its core, the building by Wingårdh Arkitektontor is truly a modern marvel.

Soho Apartment by Dive Architects

We love what Dive Architects have done with this stylish, minimalist apartment in Soho London. The owner initially had no idea what to do with such a cramped space. The Architects proposal was to extend the building over an existing terrace. They placed two large sliding doors that open into cavities within the walls, this allows residents to enjoy the open air on a beautiful day.

House on the Edge

Korean artist Do Ho Suh placed real house on top of Jacobs Hall building on the campus of University of California in San Diego. “Fallen Star” house looks like it was picked up by some mysterious force and crashed into the seventh floor of Jacobs School of Engineering. Do Ho Suh came to America in 1991. He had to physically and mentally adjust to new surroundings. This unique and creative art installation was inspired by the concepts of “home” and “cultural displacement”.
