National Kaohsiung Performing Arts Center

Competition Winner : mecanoo / Netherlands
website: www.mecanoo.com

The Governor of Kaohsiung, Taiwan announced that Mecanoo architecten has won the design competition for the new National Performing Arts Centre. At 100,000 m2 the National Performing Arts Centre is to become the largest theatre complex in Taiwan. An important source of inspiration for Mecanoo’s building design were the existing one of the world’s largest trees, the banyan trees on location. The partially grass and plant covered roof creates natural and efficient building cooling in the subtropical climate. The large roof also provides an informal public space where the city residents can stroll, practice Tai Chi, mediate or just relax. The design also consists of a concert hall of 2,300 seats, an opera house with 2,000 seats, a theatre hall with 1000 seats, an experimental Black Box with 500 seats, an open-air theatre and park design. Work on the 200m Euros is set to begin in early 2009 and to be completed by 2012.



Program: Theatercomplex 100.000 .

d0079151_2119424.jpgEdited by Rochelle Steiner. Essays by Matthias Connor, Matthew Higgs, Sarah McCrory, Tim Nash, Scott Portnoy and Ian Svenonius.

Bells and whistles beware, there's a new noisemaker in town: Oliver Payne and Nick Relph's new book--which is jacketed in the durable, stain-resistant patterned fabric of London Underground seat upholstery--rings like a cell phone when it is opened. In this fuzzy tome, published on the occasion of the artists' exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, London, Payne and Relph offer the first print transcripts of their 2004 films Driftwood, Gentlemen and Comma, Pregnant Pause, as well as their notes on 2005's Sonic the Warhol, which they call their most successful work because "The last album is always the best album." Their own writing is intermixed with pieces from a whole crowd of authors addressing topics that have inspired them and their work, including Matthias Connor on Scottish glam-rock; Tim Nash on riding the bus in London; and Ian Svenonius on the political history of drinking. An unconventional interview conducted by coordinating questions for the artists from 20 different individuals also appears, along with essays by Scott Portnoy and Rochelle Steiner, the Chief Curator at the Serpentine Gallery.

Gregory Crewdson

Gregory Crewdson
born 1962 America

Gregory Crewdson is a leading practitioner in the use of constructed models and staged events in photographic art, which blurs the distinction between reality and fiction. Focusing frequently on the American suburban landscape, his carefully composed and dramatically lit photographs present strangely disquieting views of everyday life that one critic has described as being like a “demented Norman Rockwell.”

Crewdson’s influences include his father who was a psychoanalyst, the classic cinematic devices used in science fiction/horror films, the straightforward realities of documentary photography, and the work of such contemporary photographers as Diane Arbus, William Eggleston, and Cindy Sherman.

Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol
born 1928 Pittsburg, Pennsylvania

website :Warhol Museum

Andy Warhol was born Andrew Warhola in Pennsylvania in 1928. In 1945 he entered the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) where he majored in pictorial design. Upon graduation, Warhol moved to New York where he found steady work as a commercial artist. He worked as an illustrator for several magazines including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar.

d0079151_0571832.gifThroughout the 1950s, Warhol enjoyed a successful career as a commercial artist, winning several commendations from the Art Director's Club and the American Institute of Graphic Arts. In these early years, he shortened his name to "Warhol." In 1952, the artist had his first individual show at the Hugo Gallery, exhibiting Fifteen Drawings Based on the Writings of Truman Capote. His work was exhibited in several other venues during the 1950s, including his first group show at The Museum of Modern Art in 1956.
The 1960s was an extremely prolific decade for Warhol. Appropriating images from popular culture, Warhol created many paintings that remain icons of 20th-century art, such as the Campbell's Soup Cans, Disasters and Marilyns. In addition to painting, Warhol made several 16mm films which have become underground classics such as Chelsea Girls, Empire and Blow Job. In 1968, Valerie Solanis, founder and sole member of SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men) walked into Warhol's studio, known as the Factory, and shot the artist. The attack was nearly fatal.

Turquoise Marilyn 1962 / Andy Warhol painted several version of Marilyn Monroe, using different colors, sizes, and formats. The artist was fascinated with fame for himself, but also of those that were famous. Warhol painted many other celebrities and iconic people from history.

The fourth Bmw Art Car was created in 1977 by the Pop Art legend Andy Warhol
Warhol explained the sweeping strokes of his car, "I tried to portray speed pictorially. If a car is moving really quickly, all the lines and colors are blurred." All previous Art Car artists created their designs on 1:5 scale models, called maquettes, and had technicians reproduce their designs on the real cars. Warhol insisted on painting the real M1 himself. He is reported to have spent all of 23 minutes painting the car. He ran his fingers through the paint to leave a personal touch.When asked if he was pleased with the end result, he replied, "I love the car; it's better than the work of art itself."
The car raced only once, in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979, driven by Manfred Winkelhock (Germany) and the Frenchmen Hervé Poulain and Marcel Mignot. It placed sixth overall and second in class.

In fact, things worked out so well that within a year the trio had managed to sub-let the rest of the desk space in their studio to people they gelled with creatively, had started employing designers one by one, and were told by their accountant that – since everyone was doing so much work together – they would have to form a limited company.

d0079151_14403036.jpgThe result was Airside, an accidental company with an accidental name. “We came up with a shortlist of about 20 words, but all of them had the URL taken,” reveals Hunter, shattering the mystique. “I had The Oxford Dictionary of New Words and I went through it, starting at A,” she continues, “Do you know what Airside means? It’s when you’ve gone through passport control, before you get on the plane, you’re Airside.”

Varied backgrounds“We didn’t set out to do that,” Hunter recalls, commenting on both the company’s name and the way it’s developed. “We didn’t get into this for the business. We got into it because we wanted to do better work. The three of us, over the course of that first year, realised that we worked well together. It was interesting, because we’ve got very different backgrounds. It was a bit of an experiment, because Fred didn’t know Alex.” The common link was Hunter, who has a background in human computer interface psychology, graphic design and programming. It was as a psychology student at Edinburgh University that she first met fellow undergraduate Fred Deakin, who was studying English Literature and running interactive experiential club nights. Then, as an MA student at the RCA, Hunter met Alex Maclean who, at the time, had left architecture to work on virtual worlds.

When the three came together Hunter was freelancing as a Flash programmer, Deakin was both a graphic designer and part-time DJ and Maclean was working on 3D virtual worlds and models for architects. Despite their completely different backgrounds, they found that their work clicked because they had one key thing in common: they all thought about user-experience.


All of which leaves one question: what does the future hold for Airside? “Things are changing,” reflects Hunter. “Advertising companies are doing more online work. The first wave of the web revolution was like the Wild West: anything went. It feels like we’re in the same position now. It’s an open book again, and we’re looking forward to exploring that side of things more.” It seems that Airside is ready for take-off.

Luigi Colani

Luigi Colani
boorn 1928 Berlin,Germany

website: /www.colani.de

Luigi Colani is a German industrial designer whose father came from Madulain near St. Moritz in Switzerland and mother from Poland.The prime characteristic of his designs are the rounded, organic forms, which he terms "biodynamic" and claims are ergonomically superior to traditional designs. His "kitchen satellite" from 1969 is the most prominent example of this school of thought. Many of his designs for small appliances are being mass-produced and marketed, but his larger designs have not been built, "a whole host of futuristic concepts that will have us living in pods and driving cars so flat that leg amputation is the only option."


Translating Nature - Luigi Colani 2007 Exhibition at Design Museum London

The fantastical world of Luigi Colani, this exhibition brings together Colani's extraordinary large scale prototype designs including trucks, aircraft and cars. A great maverick of 20th Century design, with a career spanning almost six decades, Colani has applied his organic design style to produce biodynamic cars, boats, planes, ceramics and consumer goods, as well as creating alternative futuristic concepts for transport and architecture. A powerful influence on contemporary designers such as Ross Lovegrove and Future Systems, this retrospective of Colani’s work is curated by Albrecht Bangert and designed by Nigel Coates.

Thomas Schütte

Thomas Schütte
born 1954 Oldenburg,Germany


Thomas Schütte is an important German contemporary artist. From 1973 to 1981 he studied art at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Gerhard Richter and Fritz Schwegler. From September 24, 1998 to June 18, 2000 The Dia Center For The Arts mounted a three part survey of Schütte's work. The first, "Scenewright" (September 24, 1998 - January 24, 1999) focused on theater-related projects. "Gloria in Memoria" (February 4 - June 13, 1999) dealt with death with a somewhat morbid sense of humor, as in his memorial to Alain Colas which pictures the famous sailor and daredevil bobbing in the water, surprised at his own death. The third installment, "In Media Res," included large ceramic heads and massive, battered bronze nudes.
