This month a further element was introduced on the Vitra Campus. On a hill between the VitraHaus and the Dome, the Italian architect Renzo Piano and the Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) has developed “Diogene”, which to date is Vitra’s smallest building ― but largest product.
Diogene is not an emergency accommodation, but a voluntary place of retreat. It is supposed to function in various climate conditions, independent of the existing infrastructure, i.e. as a self-sufficient system. The required water is collected by the house itself, cleaned and reused. The house supplies its own power and the necessary platform is minimised. We live in an age in which the demand for sustainability forces us to minimise our ecological footprint. This postulate is paired with the desire to concentrate and reduce the direct living environment to the truly essential things.
London’s Duke of York Square will boast an arresting new landmark courtesy of London-based architecture practice NEX.
The design was chosen from almost 150 entries in an international competition calling for a new public facility for the Sloane Square location. Situated near the entrance to the Saatchi contemporary art gallery and the busy shopping precinct of the King’s Road, the site is home to an existing cafe that benefits from a prime location and plenty of foot traffic, but is lacking capacity and the sense of occasion needed to announce its presence as a landmark in the area.
A careful combination of sugar, glass and steel creates this beautiful pavilion. [View More Photos at Inthralld.com]
