An iconic little building in upstate New York by Dutch architect Ben Van Berkel of the firm UN Studio was destroyed by fire in 2007. This house known as the VilLA NM was one of the first elegantly executed and internationally recognized reinterpretation of the Glass House and immerged at the dawn of the internet age as a prelude to an era of sculptural modernism. The cover of Edition29 Architecture Issue 006 pays tribute to this little gem that has temporarily fallen, but now lives on through the stunning photographs by Christian Richters.
Edition29 Architecture Issue 006 continues in the rhythm of the earlier Issues with a visual showcase of stunning, minimal and modern personal habitats from Portugal, North America, Japan, Finland to Mexico City. Featuring audio interviews with, Dutch architect Ben Van Berkel, American designer Michael Janzten, architect Pedro Reis from Portugal, Canadian architect Brian Mackay Lyons, Mexican architect Derek Dellekamp and more.
Also, Architect Ville Hara tells us about his Four Cornered house built to enjoy the acetic life on a remote Finnish Island, with no running water or indoor toilet, this solar powered modern building lets the habitants live in the middle of nature putting to use nature’s abundant resources. Japanese architect Kazunori Fujimoto talks to us describing the House in Nasu and its unique cement walled enclosure.
The road of life leads us, its travelers, all the way from the start to the end through the hills and valleys, along the rivers banks and through the dunes; however, we all need sometimes to get distracted from our main route and daily routine to get some rest and refill our souls with hope, faith, peace, calmness, and delight. Listening to music, reading books, and watching the paintings in the art gallery work well for most of us in such situation. Internet is a great achievement of humanity, because today you can enjoy the paintings of great artists from the comfort of your sofa; you can choose whatever book you would like to read, and whatever music you would like to listen at the very moment. Cruzine belongs to the online places, where dozens of art works are displayed each day. Our aim is to show modern art “as is” exposing equally artists with well established reputation and those, who are only making their first steps to the world of design art.
