Caught by Umeå

The Swedish town of Umea is set to become Europe’s capital of culture next year - and to celebrate, the city has created a dazzling ice block building that captures the awe-inspiring spectacle of the northern lights! The translucent space reminiscent of the aurora borealis will be touring Europe in the coming months for the Caught by Umea exhibition. After all, how best to celebrate the town’s forthcoming honor than by encapsulating the northern lights for the rest of Europe to enjoy!
Throughout the Caught by Umea exhibitions artists will create impermanent ice sculptures all over Europe. Giant blocks of ice will be placed in strategic locations around each city the exhibition visits, expressing a kind of message – a frozen note, a sculpture, or even a QR code. These blocks of ice will lead to a large central meeting place filled with exciting experiences related to Umea and northern Sweden.
Organizers from Umea are going to great lengths to form “co-creative” partnerships and inspiring initiatives between countries for the tour. Each artist exhibiting during the tour has been selected as finalists for a competition, and a panel of experts from each country will pick national winners that will be exhibited in Umea in 2014.

In Copenhagen





In Spain

Under construction: Hobbit village

Hobbit village
Muskö, Stockholm archipelago

Muskö island will house 30 huts resembling Bilbo Baggins’ dwellings, using natural building materials to create an eco-friendly community.
Sweden-based British entrepreneur John Higson plans to build a hobbit village on his property on the sleepy island of Muskö. “I’ve always been fascinated by different, weird-ish houses,” he says.


http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/worl.../11/2003574268

A real-life hobbit village will soon be nestled in the lush forests of a Swedish island, a whimsical housing scheme billed as the first of its kind — but behind the fantasy gimmick lies a genuine interest for sustainable development.
The Swedish hobbit village will keep the notion of natural materials and soft, round shapes: the windows, doors and walls will all be curved.
Yet the houses will be slightly more up-to-date, built for city-dwellers longing to retreat to nature on weekends and holidays.
Natural building materials from the area will also be used, such as timber, stone, sand, clay and grass. Energy efficiency will be a primary goal, so heating will come from solar power and wood-burning.
The village is not targeted at fans of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings — rather, it is intended to appeal to those who care about the environment and want to live close to nature.
The island’s first hobbit house is scheduled to be ready in the middle of next year, with the village completed within a few years.

Europe’s best designed bar: Cuckoo’s Nest

Cuckoo’s Nest at the Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel Gothenburg, Sweden
Designed by Stylt Trampoli AB

Winner of Interior Design of the Year: Bar














Submission:

Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel is situated in what used to be one of Gothenburg’s old shipyard districts, Lindholmen. Today the area is host to a new and different kind of arena.
The Lindholmen Science Park has developed into one of the leading forums for innovation, research and education within science, new technologies and communication.
With this in mind, the mission has been to establish an interior concept for the restaurant and bar of the hotel, neighbouring the science park.
As the line between genius and madness is subtle, creators named the restaurant and bar Cuckoo’s Nest. This is a meeting place for visionaries and dreamers, creators and contrary thinkers, innovators and possibility-people. Having drawn on inspiration from the local surroundings, the Cuckoo’s Nest incorporates features that give a heightened sense of scientific thinking. An example is the bar, which illustrates notes and calculations from Albert Einstein, illuminating them as if they are on an actual chalkboard. The bar has been incorporated together with the restaurant to create a milieu that is welcoming to both the traveller, but also for the local visionary and possibility-people alike.
Design elements have been developed to enhance the warm and welcoming feeling for either groups of people or for the lone visitor. By opening the door for the possibilities of scientific sharing, the new bar next to the restaurant becomes a natural meeting ground, worthy of everyone who knows that there never was a genius without a tincture of madness.

Judge's Comment:

The judges said this was an engaging and lively bar environment that lends itself to a sociable atmosphere, with interesting and provocative design features throughout. Once again, this concept was highly commended by the judges for its storytelling and sense of place achieved by designers Stylt Trampoli.

I love the rendering of the building with the stacked and rotated cubes. It looks a bit like the Exhibit building in Toronto, which is also about the same height, and plays off the Daniel Libeskind museum across the street. Exhibit is already under construction. But the Swedish version is "greener" and has a better interplay of solid and transparent elements. I look forward to comparing the two when they're both built.

Something I find astounding is that in that mall you have lush fabric furniture for people to sit upon. In the U.S. you would never see such a thing. Hooligans and carelessness would destroy them all within months.
