Winsun New Materials es una compañía con sede en Suzhou, China, su último proyecto fue imprimir 10 casas a tamaño real en 24 horas con impresión 3D, además el concepto es para respetar el medio ambiente. Las casas tiene un tamaño de 200 metros cuadrados y un costo de $4,800 USD, cada vivienda fue creada en menos de un par de horas con material reciclado de construcción y residuos industriales con una enorme impresora 3D. En lugar de utilizar los ladrillos y el mortero, el sistema expulsa una mezcla de cemento de alta calidad y material de fibra de vidrio, capa por capa, de forma similar a los procesos de creación rápida de prototipos tradicionales. Con la ayuda de programa CAD para el desarrollo del plan arquitectónico, se trazaron los cálculos, fontanería, revestimiento eléctrico y ventanas, que más tarde se puede equipar una vez que se monta el resto de la estructura.

Sam Jinks sculpts hyper-realistic portraits for Art Stage Singapore
Emotional vulnerability is both the theme and result of australian artist Sam Jinks' hyper-realistic sculptural portraits. Each humanoid artwork is carefully and meticulously constructed from silicone, fiberglass, resin and calcium carbonate, and their details ripened by biological mediums like human hair, demonstrating an abundance of anatomical and physiological accuracy. Avoiding straightforward portraiture by casting his anthropocentric figures large-scale, smaller-than-life sized, or interlaced with animal parts suggests to the observer a curious sense of intimacy with the subject. They narrate brief, and often private moments in time — life cycles and different stages of development create generations of figures frozen in time. Jinks will be included in the ‘Platforms Australia’ exhibition at art stage singapore 2014, presenting a self-portrait work in the group exhibition.
The Signal Barn by Jun Igarashi Architects
Farm Tomita in Hokkaido, Japan, is a popular attraction for tourists and locals alike with fields of colorful flowers and luscious gardens. It also had an entrance that was unclear, confusing and ineffective, a problem that japanese practice Jun Igarashi Architects solved with the creation of an entry portal – a signal to the premises. The signal barn is a series of elongated house-like wooden structures taking its language from the existing structures of the complex, larger-than-lifesize signs signaling the entrance and parking – a proper introduction to an established site.

Rob Sweere suspends The Hub in a forest
Hidden within a forestscape, dutch artist Rob Sweere has realized ‘The Hub’ a soothing meditation chamber, which provokes an organic experience for the visitor that lies inside. Six, taught steel cables connected to nearby trees suspend the immersive red form from the surface of the earth. The person lying within can view the sky, framed by the tops of the towering trees, through a gaping mouth at the object’s crown. Openings on either side of the structure surround the interior with natural light, as well as reveal fragments of the woodsy landscape that encompasses it. Created from aluminum and polyurethane, the habitat’s therapeutic objective is characterized by its silhouette and aesthetic: a grate-like opening at its base allows air to flow inside and hovers the daydreamer just above the ground, merging the visitor and environment as one. ‘The Hub’ is a permanent artwork specially designed for the sculpture garden of the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Netherlands.

Akane Moriyama suspends transparent Cubic Prism in Texas
Gently responding to wind movements and rain drops, ‘Cubic Prism’ by Stockholm-based designer Akane Moriyamais a large cube-based structure made out of three different colors of textiles. Suspended between two buildings at the Goldsmith Hall in the University of Texas, Austin, the piece reacts to environmental factors, as the geometry of a rigid cube is replaced with soft semi-transparent fabrics. The installation’s opacity changes according to the way natural light is filtered through it, mixing the different colors – the transient prism continuously shifts its visual appearance. hanging naturally between the surrounding buildings, the hammock-shaped structure dramatically influences the nature of the square below.

A-Art House by Kazuyo Sejima for the Inujima art house project
Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima has completed ‘A-Art House’, a transparent, walk through pavilion with vibrant pink, red, and yellow floral motifs encompassing the exterior skin. The archetypal sculpture allows entry at one point, granting access to either the interior of the clear acrylic ring, or entry into a small rest area at its core. The organic enclosure is fitted with two silver stools, for pause and contemplation. Fusing art and architecture, the ethereal space has a delicate flower pattern on its facade, whose semi-translucent chroma visually reveals the landscape to viewers standing inside of the volume. The anatomy of two sheer walls and ceiling exposes the entire panorama of surrounding scenery.
‘A-Art House’ is designed as a part of the Inujima Art House Project, an initiative developed thorough a collaboration of Sejima and art director Yuko Hasegawa to beautify the village on the island of Inujima in Japan by installing exhibition pavilions among the traditional houses. Three art galleries opened in 2010 — f-art house, s-art house, and i-art house — which display special artworks. Two new galleries have opened in 2013 — a-art house and c-art house — which will exhibit works by five artists.

Lethal lake natron calcifies animals into stone-like corpses
While traveling northern Tanzania for a pictorial journey of east Africa, british photographer Nick Brandtunexpectedly came upon a number dead birds and bats that appeared to be made out of stone. The animals had washed up along the shoreline of the lethal lake natron, a salt lake located near the Kenyan border. The waterway contains a deadly chemical composition — a very high soda and salt content — which causes any creature who dares to dip in to die, calcify, and remain perfectly preserved as they dry. Brandt notes that the chemical level was so extreme, that while he was capturing the images, the ink stripped off his kodak film boxes within just a few seconds.
Ark Nova inflatable concert hall to tour Japan’s flood-hit areas
'Ark Nova', the world’s first inflatable concert hall, will soon tour areas of Japan that were devastated in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Designed by british sculptor Anish Kapoor and japanese architect Arata Isozaki, the mobile structure will host world-class concerts, workshops, and both traditional and contemporary performance as part of the Lucerne Festival Ark Nova. The balloon-like architecture is stationed in Matsushima City, which is still healing after being struck by the natural disaster, and the team behind its creation hopes to deliver encouragement and positivity in the form of music. The temporary structure holds about 500 people, whose luminescent purple walls create a billowing interior fitted with handcrafted benches and a stage.
The Cuddly: a giant plush teddy takes to the streets of Warsaw
A giant plush teddy is set in the urban city streets of Warsaw, Poland — a jovial artistic intervention that gives a new shape to everyday reality. Iza Rutkowska, of Forms and Shapes Foundationin Poland, concieved the idea in response to current statues in Warsaw: a city full of monuments, most commemorating wartime experiences or social and political issues, yet their typically stone facades blend into the surrounding space, becoming commonplace and conventional parts of life.
Rutkowska creates a giant faithful friend from childhood, 'The Cuddly', a massive teddy bear, which passersby are invited to interact with, climbing on him and hugging him and giving the residents of Warsaw a sense of the existence of 'public friend.' The stuffed animal moves around the city, traveling to beaches and local parks, and will soon to fly in other places around the world.
Emmanuelle Moureaux suspends 100 colors of paper
Conceived by Emmanuelle Moureaux for the Shinjuki Creators Festa 2013, ‘100 colors’—whose title indicates the number of hues the designer has integrated into the work—features more than 840 sheets of paper that are suspended from the ceiling, creating a volume of rainbow colors that float in the air. Emmanuelle has chosen the 100 colors from inventory of Takeo, a japanese paper manufacturer whose product line is available in thousands of types and textures, in an extensive range of hues. The vibrant installation encourages visitors to engage with it from various angles. bean bags are placed under neath the spectrum of color inviting one to sit down and look at it from a different perspective, while 100 round circles—each representing the colors used in the opus—placed on the wall summon the public to place a sticker around their favorite, transforming the rear of the space into a completely separate work of art, that also acts as a trend indicator of what guests prefer.
'100 colors' is on show at Shinjuki Mitsui building 1F 55square and is being displayed until september 29th, 2013, and Emmanuelle is eager to find a new venue for the work once this exhibition ends.
