The art of the former erotic cinema: Madrid Sala Equis, from focusing on eroticism to showing new horizons in life

By
There is a kind of love. "Before I haven't fallen in love with you, you have already fallen in love with me." With such a romantic happiness, walking in a row of colorful houses in the blue sky of Madrid's hot sun On the streets of the encircled, when you met Sala Equis, the timeliness and love of love seemed to radiate from the building; the bricks and tiles were once carved with the smell of wind and frost until the old building met. Five young people. From 1913 to the next 20 years, the building was stationed as El Imparcial until the early 20th century, the neoclassical building and courtyard reincarnation became Duque De Alba Cinema; after the mid-1980s, it was transformed from a Hollywood classic to an art and adult film; until 2015, it was the last erotic theatre in Madrid. Despite several threats of being demolished, this last adult adult cinema in Madrid survived the glory days, accompanied the local people to spend the same time, and expressed the passions accumulated in the 30-year period. His own historical and cultural values. The third rebirth, this old building met the right people in the right time, together with a new and old love song. In order to revitalize the old buildings, they can preserve the historical significance of the past. Five young people from different fields, with their own professions and ideas, Daniel Fernández Cañadas, Laura Suárez, Cristina Rodríguez, Marie Jennings Camissa and Nacho de Padrón, a group of creative groups that assemble journalists, political scientists and restaurant operators. They teamed up with the design team Plantea Estudio to transform the abandoned cinema into a functional and vibrant complex social venue. Pass through the lobby on the first floor, such as the walkway, and browse the tickets containing all the movies, concerts, and exhibitions in "Taquilla", popcorn and drinks in the barrel, walk to the atrium "SALA PLAZA", and be spacious and bright. Shocked. In the past, it was Duque de Alba's outdoor theater. The circular seating area can accommodate up to 300 people. In addition to watching live performances, it is also a place for social and drinking. The vines that climbed up the wall and the gaze fell to the top of the steel frame. The architect, based on his original use, designed a large skylight to shed a natural light during the day; facing the projection screen, surrounded by the surrounding Beach chairs and cushions, a childlike swing descending from the roof, and uncompromisingly contrasting with the mottled walls. The calmness of the old building embraces a new laid-back atmosphere, and satisfies Sala Equis's relaxed and natural character. The original film screening hall is now used to showcase independent films and art films, continuing the erotic atmosphere of the predecessor's adult theater. A total of 55 seats of auditorium, with a gorgeous enchanting crimson velvet and brown round table for People enjoy a refreshment while enjoying a refreshing experience in the gorgeous but lazy space. In addition, there is no thought in the corridor connecting the space. There is a cocktail bar and the same texture of dark velvet. In each building, the original corner of the railing and the tiles that are stepped on each step lead the visitors to one place. The elegant corner of the comfortable nest, the slightly decadent space is full of charm and retro style. As a century-old building, Sala Equis...

Design Institute │ Make the furniture stolen from the museum into furniture? Sebastian Errazuriz Humor x Aesthetics Formula

By
Author / Alice Chan, Sia. Design and art have always been the channel to interpret visual aesthetics. In addition to the outline and appearance of the work, it is perhaps the physics of the artist and the designer to think and perceive the meaning and structure of life. And even emotional experiments. It can be as pure as meditation, or it can be neurotic-like and frenzied; through the creators to smash or stack ideas in the brain, through different experiences and understanding, to establish a unique thinking and world view. Sebastian Errazuriz, who was born in Chile and now settles in New York, travels in both art and design. He can be called a speculative artist. He can also say that his works are transforming artistic expressions into design vocabulary. In the seemingly minimalist studio, there is a neat design logic, and there are hidden personal details of the game; the neon works of "I LOVE YOU/ I LOVED YOU" on the wall are covered in words. Emotions, but full of humor and irony. The so-called creative process is basically a biological algorithm that we have not realized. The so-called creative process is basically a biological algorithm that we have not realized. Responding to the above explanation of his creation, Errazuriz's own creation, as if the algorithm is automatically activated, reorganizes the abstract and non-physical knowledge and thoughts around the existentialism, psychology, politics, and social issues, or from the Renaissance. The angle of the period cuts into an elegant formula that breaks through the framework without losing visual impact. "Life is very short. When faced with death, why not bring style into life and scream at heaven." He is not obscuring the boundaries between art and design. He just enters these two fields with his own desires. To turn the pictures and even the inner thoughts that we have seen in our lives into a visual experience and story.

I used 3D scanning technology to steal these classical statues that I loved and respected from the museum. ANTIQUITY SHELVES NIKE, 2018. I used 3D scanning technology to steal these classical statues that I loved and respected from the museum. A towering "eagle" around the headless statue of the Greek goddess Nike is like waiting for the restoration of the museum. The meaning of art is constantly being questioned in every movement in the history of art. Whether it is the British Museum, the Louvre or the Vatican, the statue that is ruined by war or against time, "we will naturally think They are going to protect and rebuild them.” However, for the purpose of reconstruction and protection, there is also a gap between these works of art and people.

"B&B" = "Bed & Breakfast"? No, it is "Book & Bed"! Three rooms in Tainan and Yilan are like a hotel in a bookstore.

By

As the saying goes, "It is better to travel thousands of miles than to read thousands of books." Now the hotel is intimately combined with travel and reading, so that you don't have to worry about the problem of choosing one, and let B&B not just the light and simple of "Bed & Breakfast". On behalf of the "Book & Bed" (review of Tokyo Ikebukuro Book & Bed) style tour. The strongest newcomer in the hotel industry is on the scene | UIJ Hotel&Hostel is hidden in the quiet street next to the Tainan You'ai Market. The hidden and low-profile UIJ Hotel & Hostel is not visible at first glance. There is a hole in the sky: the wide hall is decorated with dark green and Dazheng gold to create a retro and stylish tone. Together with local elements such as terrazzo, glass window and European antique furniture, the whole space is uniquely fascinating. The black vinyl turntable in the center of the hall and the row of book walls on both sides add a leisurely atmosphere and artistic atmosphere to the space. The Youai Street team said that the ancient capital of Tainan, under the influence of the Dutch and Japanese cultures, was originally multi-genetic and quite open and inclusive for different cultures. The team invited a good VVG space designer, Faye, to present this blend of old and new, Taiyang mix in space. In addition to expressing the open character of Tainan in the space design, You Ai Street Hotel also hopes to become a "cross-border platform" in the local area. In the hall bookstore "Sakae BBBooks" (sweet and slang means "sweet nourishment"), it is based on the sweet taste of Tainan cuisine, and selects food-related books. It hopes to attract local residents in the form of a 24-hour bookstore. The hotel promotes exchanges between Tainanese and travelers. The accommodation floor also provides different types of magazines at the exit of the elevator in the form of a theme on each floor, so that passengers can also access multiple information during the stay, and use the book as a medium to break the barrier between the local/external and the personal reading inertia. Let new sparks burst through every corner of the space. In addition to promoting communication through books, it is a “cross-border mixed hotel combining design hotels and youth hostels”. UIJ Hotel & Hostel also offers 110 backpack beds and 87 rooms, and is designed to promote public communication. Space, I hope that hotel guests who value personal privacy, as well as backpackers who advocate exchanges and sharing, will know each other in the first session of the accommodation. Therefore, although the high-quality products such as Lin Guoliang design leather slippers and New York MALIN+GOETZ washing lotion are provided in the room, the special coffee bags and tea bags are not intentionally placed, so that they can guide the passengers into the shared kitchen (Open Kitchen), brewing a cup of fragrant coffee with a hand-washing pot, not only enjoy the leisurely pace of the ancient capital, but also communicate with travellers from all over the world. "Before there were business guests who were practicing hand-washing coffee, they would happily pick up the kitchen and provide a hand-washing pot, and make a cup of coffee for each of the backpackers in the kitchen. This kind of exchange will also let each other know different worlds. Very interesting." Friends of the street team recalled. In addition to sharing the kitchen, You Ai Street Hotel also invites the professional floral team to arrange a free terrace in the south. Welcome the travellers to drink a little wine and talk in the summer. Next, the vacancy on the first floor of the hotel building will also be stationed in the bar and the clear bar, offering more choices for travellers. By a good VVG space designer...

Between the doors and windows and the pages of the book, the unfinished design soul of Berlin: Michelberger Hotel

Keeping the "old" of the building: creating a escaping tea seat in the bustle of the city, and Heqingtian

By

The matter of drinking tea is very delicate. In addition to tea, tea, and sometimes more importantly, whether the environment can lead people to quietly taste the subtle taste. An old house that has been abandoned for more than ten years on Qingtian Street has recently reopened, which proves this. Tea can wake up, Jing can fix the heart, want to explore the true meaning of tea culture, Jin Tang and house view, are indispensable. Before entering the garden, the pavilion brought a raft, wearing a wooden raft to step on the stone path, swaying, afraid of slipping, and the footsteps were slow. In the Tianlong area of ​​the Tianlong Kingdom, there is actually this pure land, surrounded by green, silent to imitation. Is it because the buildings in front of you are so ancient and quiet? On the open porch of the sliding door, there is a low table and two tea cups. Only the sound of boiled water rings in the ear, and one bite back, and all the troubles are forgotten. This good view of heaven and man can come true, and architect Chen Qinzhong is the greatest hero. He has been investing in the restoration of historic sites for many years. He learned that the Cultural Bureau of the North City Government was pushing the old house culture movement a few years ago, and encouraged the tea merchants Baifu Tibetan warehouses that wanted to expand their bases in Taiwan. This building is located at No. 10, Lane 8, Qingtian Street. In the 1930s, it was originally a residence of the Taipei University of Higher Education (now the National Taiwan Normal University), and was managed by Taiwan Electric Power Co., Ltd. and the Taiwan Power Company after the recovery. After winning the bid for the Baifu warehouse in 2015, Chen Qinzhong spent a year of design and two years of engineering. In the spring of this year, it became a brand new tea culture experience space, “Hehe Qingtian”, and opened the public to make an appointment. The most precious thing is the way the years are given. "This house is registered as a historic building. In other words, it is a cultural asset and a public good. What do you mean? It means that it will live older than us!" Chen Qinzhong said. If building life can be drawn into a long line that spans the times, then even if you add various functions as your needs change, you should not lose your original appearance and spirit, because everything should be reserved for future generations. This is why he "repairs the old as old" and refuses to join the contemporary building materials or style. When the house was taken up, the sliding door and the ceiling were gone, the walls were covered with thick white paint, and only one layer of paint was removed to restore the texture of the wooden wall, and then the door was re-applied. Among them, Ramen Xuan paper deliberately used Pu'er tea soup to dye yellow, make shades and spots, and even use bamboo to spray bamboo leaves to make the old and new colors unified. "I want to look like a yellowed old photo overall." The old seat (ざしき, living room) is now the largest tea room, connected to the "bed between the bed" that is one step higher than the tatami. Chen pointed to the mottled wall: "There is even a trace of the previous installation of the cabinet." He redone the crossbar and the floor, but he was reluctant to rectify the wall. The "between the beds" in the Japanese-style houses has always placed the treasures that represent the spirit of the master. It is also the core of the family. It is a tribute to the "process" of the past housing experience. The main tea room between the attached beds is diagonally opposite to the tea ceremony classroom. Here, tea is also used. The tea slag, straw, and dirt are smeared on the brick wall, and the "tea wall" is controlled by the washing method. The texture between the two. There is also a back tea room transformed from the old kitchen. The fine stone paving, the sliding door can be fully opened, embracing the scenery of the garden, and also covering the garden with recycled grass and mud, and awakening childhood memories of mud in the cave. "Fang Cao Ting". All the way through, every place has its own merits, but it is not comparable to the last surprise on the top. At the top of the back building, Chen Qinzhong set up a stone step and stored a pond to create the only "moon tea seat" in Taiwan. There is a tree in front of the black pine, and the night wind is light and sloppy, and it is a great embodiment of the city. But what about the moon? "In the pool," he laughed. In a few comparable movies, "The Generation of Tea Saints and Thousands of People", Qian Lixiu reflected the moonlight with a black water tray and dedicated it to Toyotomi Hideyoshi as a gift. It accommodates the crowd and also accommodates the place of memory. "The architect's mission is to think about how to design the space without destroying the land." Perhaps this is the most complete implementation of the old-fashioned new students, because the logic of the Japanese-style construction of the wooden building, and He Qingtian only The use of natural materials such as wood, grass, bamboo, and soil is not only environmentally friendly, but also regulates the indoor microclimate to maintain warm winter and cool summer. After the interview, we took a rest in the cloister and learned about the original old-fashioned tea in the museum. The director, Fang Ting, took the newly-developed dried mango. "When the former homeowners came back, they would share the memories of sitting here to eat mangoes, so the tea set decided to be dried mangoes!" Thanks to the opportunity of repairing, they contacted the eldest daughter of the three tails of Jiro, Kuroki Kyoko, her childhood is also here. How did the scenery that I saw at the time differ from the present? In the past, 80 years have passed. But the building is still there. It is like an old man guarding this square of land. It is quiet and quiet. When people are in a daze, when the tea is overflowing, it continues to convey the unique bleak happiness.

Step up and step into the cloud of maze: Tokyo Tree House Gallery, Tree-ness House

By
Anything created by human beings is already in the great book of nature. - Antoni Gaudí i Cornet's association with the word "natural" is the arc of high and low, or soft and organic lines; however, unlike most people The impression of "nature", the Japanese architect Akihisa Hirata cuts into a tree with angular lines and builds a "Tree-ness House" in Tokyo. Hirata Hiroshi, who has worked in the famous Japanese architect Ito Kazuo for eight years, loves the intricate tree structure, counts the roots, stems, branches, flowers of trees, and the lichens, insects, and birds that are attached to the trees. ,animal. The love of the tree, the nuances of the life fascinated by it, Hiroshi Hirata through the Tree-ness House. The basic body of the building is a square, and then divided into three elements: box, wrinkles and tree planting. Look at the details of the building, such as cutting the edge of the box, folding it outward along the edge of the tangent, letting the body resemble a flower that blooms in one side, and put the plant in the block space created by the chamfer, one by one. It is simple to complete. The Tree-ness House is an urban tree house consisting of several measuring units. It is filled with green plants and mosaics to fill the space between the white bodies. The branches are intertwined and contain many lush vitality. Create a unique sense of space in the interior. The exterior of the building, built with concrete, with white steps and window sills, has become a business-like landscape in the greenery. If the growth of the same tree takes many years, Tree-ness House also takes years to complete. The owner of the three art galleries wants to create a white showroom that is different from the general gallery. After years of discussion and planning, Hirata has designed the urban tree house with the intricate pattern. The first floor is an art gallery. The seven floors above are planned for use in the home space. Like a big tree in the city, the Tree-ness House simulates the stretched foliage with a misplaced volume, using the white space to accommodate the life in it. In this detail-filled building, whether it is a plant that hangs from the window or a person who lives in it, it entrusts the daily living to the gap of stone gray; when breathing and breathing, life is accompanied by the image of organic and life.

The architectural philosophy of post-disaster reconstruction in the area of ​​vitality: let the refugees and the affected households rebuild their homes and travel to the disaster-stricken areas of the architect Xie Yingjun

By

Building a house is a production act, as long as it is a carnival where the house is built. Here, the construction of the upper beam, the firecrackers on the other side, all day is full of vitality. People affected by natural disasters not only need to settle down their lives, but also have to reunite and find their confidence to move forward. The architect, Xie Yingjun, who has been involved in post-disaster reconstruction for 20 years, continues to practice this matter. The technology of open architecture allows everyone to participate, making production behavior an inspiring agent. When I visited half of it, Xie Ying’s cell phone rang. On the phone, the batch of reports on the progress of the report, Xie Yingjun said that this is the case, and then I said how I would like to ask, like the generals in the camp to give orders. After 20 years of struggle in the post-disaster reconstruction site, he now runs abroad less and prefers to sit in the studio of the Tsang tribe in Sun Moon Lake. It is also the initial place for him to practice building a house together. "It's like Utopia," he said, and then showed off his mobile phone. "Now it's all over the Internet." The development of a light steel structure system allows everyone to participate in the remote control of the building, and it is lazy, but In fact, there are too many cases and a wide distribution. It depends on the supervision of the members of the firm on the spot. The experienced Xie Yingjun can't fly, and he can master the communication by mobile phone. His steel factory is in Chengdu, and the materials are delivered directly to the construction site. When talking about the work being carried out, he did not say that he was an architect: "We are selling steel structure, this is our core brand." In 1999, Xie Yingjun entered the Thao community of Sun Moon Lake to rebuild after the 921 earthquake. The use of recycled materials and light steel structures in the field to create a series of experimental houses, officially launched his road to post-disaster reconstruction. Later, including the Sichuan earthquake in 2008, the 2008 disaster in Taiwan, and even the earthquake in Nepal in 2015, he was able to see him. Unlike the average architect, he completely implemented the matter of "covering the house he lives in." Liao Weiyu, a team member who traveled with him to the Sichuan earthquake-stricken area, described in his book "Guerrilla House": "The design of the Xie Yingjun team is quite special. Only a set of the most streamlined and even symbolic illustrations is used to assist the scene. Construction. This set of drawings can be roughly divided into three parts: material list, structure drawing, and zero material drawing. The uniform size allows the structure drawing to be simplified into a large number of single lines, and the numbered parts are numbered. Most of them are auxiliary connectors." All the components are simplistic to the extreme, and as long as they are properly led, even the untouchables can successfully enter the house. "People who usually design, under control all places, but our idea is not like this, the less things are controlled, the better." Xie said, "Because this thing is not from us, but from them (disasters) and Our cooperation. They are very important roles." In addition to the architectural profession, he has also worked on construction work, deep understanding of construction details, and therefore understands the profits of builders in all aspects. He designed a light steel building system that can change according to the needs of the field. He hopes to open up the building profession to the masses. On the one hand, it will avoid the cost of being promoted by the unscrupulous manufacturers, and on the other hand, bring the unity and encouragement to the occupants who have built the building. We asked, seeing so many victims, it is impossible to help one by one, how to adjust psychological pressure? He didn't seem to think that it was a problem. "Building a house is a production act. As long as it is a place to build a house, it is like a carnival. Here, the work is on the beam, the firecrackers are there, and the whole day is full of vitality." The teacher is a peasant architect who emphasizes that residents are engaged in building a house, with a focus on the community behind it. The old family built a house, and the young people who walked out of the field came back to help. The neighbors rolled up their sleeves and joined the ranks. The last whole house was covered, and everyone had a sense of belonging. However, of course, there are times when there is no such joy. Last year, Xie Ying was invited by Finnish Design Week to travel to Helsinki to lead the refugees into the “Art of Relaying House Creation Behavior”. Together with the local timber to build a two-story experimental building, the local anti-immigrant organization rebounded strongly and protested at the site. Human rights groups supporting the refugees also took to the streets to march. The conflict between the two parties made this design work a serious topic in an instant, and the official media were concerned. The curator of the design week panicked. Xie Yingjun and the group members were there, and the old god was there. They set up a shed on the first floor and turned into an open space, and invited representatives from both sides to express their opinions. When the microphone was handed in, the originally excited protesters suddenly became very gentleman, and finally the atmosphere was reversed 180 degrees and the peace ended. "The curator later complained a bit and said that we have designed it before. I said yes, I knew it would be like this." He smiled proudly. The disaster-stricken scene is ever-changing, but it can always be closed. Because people are alive, they are not as worried as they are before the trip. Moreover, many rural residents still retain the wisdom of traditional house-building. Even if the language is unreasonable, as long as the steel skeleton and structure drawings are provided, the other party will almost immediately get started. "I am most afraid that our architects would like to teach them with their own profession, and that's it." For example, when I went to the earthquake-stricken area in Nepal to assist in the reconstruction in 2015, only the most streamlined steel structure was provided, and the residents themselves replaced the wood of the old house. The materials were also added to the geotechnical method to complete the reconstruction under difficult conditions. When the Liuliu Village of Sichuan Earthquake was built, the people even took the poles on the same day, and they sang the slogan enthusiastically. The boiling atmosphere in turn infected the construction team that came to guide. "Idon Kazuo, who finished the Taichung Opera House, recently did not sigh that he should not make such a complicated and difficult house? Because he experienced the 311 earthquake, his views on architecture have changed. The simpler and easier the house should be. The better the architects are, the more they are doing on the top of the pyramid, like the Gabatta Tower. But working in the disaster area is solving the most basic survival needs.” Xie Yingjun said, “The future will definitely return to the manual. It is a trend. Even if our system is also, steel is factory production, others are handmade.” Through the network platform, the open architecture profession, in addition to producing steel structure, provides independent research and development of light steel building system, Xie Yingjun An ideal is to develop a platform in the future, allowing users to use the system to design the desired house, which is quite open source architecture (Open-source architecture). "There are a lot of indirect costs for housing production. If you integrate through the Internet, these can be compressed. So the most important thing is that the structure should be perfectly digital." It seems that there will be more work on the mobile phone in the future. Not only remote control, but even the world, he has provided his home improvement system to all those who need it at a reasonable price. However, those areas that cannot be connected still have to go out in person. "Our next case is in the Syrian border in Turkey. Many people are involved in the reconstruction. The sergeant received us to go to the office, and it was beautiful, because it was just covered, and the previous one was blown up." Xie Yingjun said with an understatement, his eyes It is as sharp and firm as it can be. ...

Yukasjarvi, it may not be a famous big city, and the map will not be your first choice for tourism. But this is a village named after the Sami language in the Nordic, meaning "the gathering place beside the river".

Every winter, the design and construction team Torne River harvests more than 1,000 tons of ice and natural ice and snow, polished and carved into an original ice-cold restaurant. In particular, these ice and snow buildings will dissolve back into the river every April of the next year.
