DUTCH ARTIST STEFAN BLEEKRODE CREATES FASCINATING DRAWINGS OF ENTIRE CITIES USING HIS MEMORY
As you can read below, already from an early age on I began drawing impressions of cities, it was merely a hobby, a kind of escapism from the rather mundane surroundings where I grew up. Inspired by artists such as Monet and Van Gogh I decided to start painting after seeing the impressionists in London. Although I went to art school I consider myself self taught, on most museum visits I brought pencils and paper along and during my spare time I avidly studied art through picture books and artist monographs.

DESIGNING A CITY BLOCK / A DESIGN THESIS BY E. PAPAGEORGIOU-KOUTOULA & T. PAPADI
ENG / GR 
 
The issue of our thesis project was the redefinition of a common city block in the area of Gyzi, Athens through a proposal that acts in two levels: a) the integration of the internal non-built area of the block, the “akalyptos” and b) the restoration and reuse of three old buildings to meet the inhabitants’ needs. Our main goal was that all of our interventions should be governed by the principles of a sustainable and green architecture. The main cause of our research was the city of Athens and its numerous buildings, many of which age and remain without use . So, we studied the “polykatoikia”, the typical residential type of building, identifying its key problems. Then, we decided to address all these problems in a bigger scale, the scale of a city block, in order to achieve a better result through the design process.

This medical practice hosts the offices of two doctors with distinct medical specialisations. Since one of them is an obstetric ultrasound specialist and the other a cardiologist specialising in children, the brief required a space that would create a friendly, uplifting and, at the same time, professional atmosphere.

Opening the Box: Unpacking Minimalism
Επιμέλεια: Mark Godfrey / Curated by Mark Godfrey
Διάρκεια Εκθεσης: 22 Οκτωβρίου 2015 έως τον Απρίλιο 2016
 
When people think of Minimalism, they often think of a generic grey metal box that has been fabricated in a workshop in the United States and is displayed with other similar if not identical boxes. Although this box often features in accounts of Minimalism, it is a mythical, rather than a real artwork. This exhibition of ten works from the George Economou Collection attempts to tell a more nuanced story about Minimalism by looking at a number of different debates, places and time periods.

SYRIAN BLOWN UP LAMDMARKS RESTORED IN MINIATURE BY LOCAL ARTISTS
There are not much to be written or told, as the dark depths of the Aegean Sea become the damp, unclaimed graves for thousands of exiled Syrian refugees, obliged to abandon their families, their homes, their lives. 
 
The collapse of an entire country is inevitably marked by the destruction of its great civilization, as numerous reports have brought to light through these years: Isis blew up the Arch of Triumph in 2000-year-old city Palmyra in October 2015, while a month later Russia's air force started bombing Isis targets in the same area. The Deir ez-Zor pedestrian bridge was destroyed as well by shelling in 2013. The scale of destruction is unspeakable.

Bauhaus has been an avant-garde movement influencing not only the arts and sciences, but also the society in which it emerged. The innovative features of the Bauhaus school are to be reactivated in our era and its spirit is to be reinterpreted in a creative way through the museum. The question is what would this re-interpretation embrace and how would these notions be applied not only in the architecture of the museum, but also in its urban presence. Which ideas would Bauhaus represent today in the areas of architecture, urban design and education?

WHY COPENHAGEN TURNS ITS PARKS INTO FLOODABLE RAINSCAPES?
A new project for the city of Copenhagen is in progress. One of the most environmentally sensitive and green cities in the world is about to use its heavy rainfalls to its benefit. The city's large urban park, Enghaveparken is replanned to gain a double landscape depending on the weather. Its planted and meticulously cared gardens will be transformed into floodable ponds when the rain falls ruthlessly. Climate-resilient neighbourhoods as well as this water supply and storage programme are quite a big deal for Copenhagen, since the amount of rain water tends to reach the levels of a flood, and thus, should not be wasted, while the cityscape is dipped into a soggy, dirty mug.

The space itself was divided approximately in its middle separating the living areas from the bedroom, office and bathroom.

JOHN HEJDUK ON CASA MALAPARTE (+VIDEO)
This article on Casa Malaparte was written by John Hejduk and originally published on Domus 605 / April 1980 
 
Somehow our own relation to specific events and images in time appears to be focused upon certain haunting disparate fragments of our experience, we are both observer and participator as in a game of billiards; we hover over a fixed field lit by a circular lamp; contemplating; establishing angles; then poise; calculate; hit; then hope. The fact that we come out of a darkness, knowing that the field is rather a given, and that there are three spheres (two white; one red); at first silent; waiting; dense compact atoms of past histories; and future histories too; set into motion by our will; our willingness to act upon those spheres; playing off the rigid-angle cushions; hitting the edges; hitting the multi-points of ends of the primary diameters; bouncing a few images and even fewer ideas into the stage and arena of a seemingly perpetual moment; caught in the stop-frame of a generation; anticipating some kind of illumination.
