yves saint laurent’s dialogue with art

From the beginning on February 2019, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris created a new display exploring two of Yves Saint Laurent’s major creations: his well-known Mondrian dresses (autumn-winter 1965) and the gowns made in collaboration with the artist Claude Lalanne (autumn-winter 1969). Revolutionary was how Women’s Wear Daily described the autumn-winter 1965 collection, which drew attention for its modern, avant-garde style. Its success was primarily due to a series of dresses inspired by the painters Serge Poliakoff (1900-1969) and especially Piet Mondrian (1872-1944).

Atelier Zerebecky and Kos architects designed the Cloud Villa, named after the grand central stairs connecting the three floors of this 800m2 single-family villa in Kunshan, China.It’s abstract cloud-like form celebrates fluid movement through space, while dividing the main entry from the main living spaces. As the main focal point of the villa, contemporary in form and construction, the Cloud Villa’s stair is a classical statement about the theatre and intimacy of private and domestic life.

A concrete shell at first, the developer-built interior structure was disorganized, compartmentalized and had an inefficient interior circulation. The three floors of the residence were not vertically connected with a single staircase, but split between a large…

the vancouver cube

When the charcoal skin of corrugated metal cladding was installed on architect Tony Robins' latest project in Vancouver, Canada, it immediately drew the attention of the Vancouver community.

Project Lead: Cristina Übeda Structural Engineer: CY Loh Associates Contractor: Keystone Projects Ltd The house draws parallels with elements like the Monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey, an aircraft's colloquial ‘black box’ flight recorder, or the iPhone (Oliver Sacks referred to it as the ‘little box’), which have imbued within them a sense of…
