Freitagsfundstücke: Fernweh

kleiner-wiener-auf-reisen – das erklärt sich von selbst. Hier findet ihr viele schöne Schnappschüsse aus verschiedenen Ecken, wie oben aus dem polnischen Breslau.

Poetrygarden auf Reise – hier berichtet eine Bloggerin von ihrer 18-monatigen Abenteuerreise durch Australien, Neuseeland, Indonesien, Indien, wo sie im November die Ausbildung zur Yogalehrerin erwartet, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Kambodscha, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapur und die Philippinen (uff, Neid!).

Und dann hätten wir noch die Berichte von Greta auf Reisen, die bereits seit Ende 2010 regelmäßig bloggt.

Long Museum (West Bund) Atelier Deshaus

"The new design adopts the cantilever structure featuring “vault-umbrella” with independent walls while the shear walls with free layout are embedded into the original basement so as to be concreted with the original framework structure. With the shear walls, the first underground floor of the original parking has been transformed to an exhibition space with the overground space highlighting multiple orientations because of the relative connection of the “vault-umbrella” at different directions; besides, the electrical & mechanical system has been integrated in the “vault-umbrella” structure. As to the overground space covered by the “vault-umbrella”, the walls and the ceiling feature as-cast-finish concrete surface so that their geometrical dividing line seems faint. Such structure cannot only shield the human body in conformation but visually echoes with the Coal-Hopper-Unloading-Bridge at the wharf. Moreover, the building’s internal space can also represent a kind of primordial and tameless charm while the spatial dimension, large or small, and the as-cast-finish concrete surface with the seam among moulding boards and the bolt holes bring a sense of reality as well. The directness and simplicity resulting from this “literal” structure, material and space plus the sense of force or lightness because of large-scale overhanging style enables the overall building’s continuation of the industrial property of the original site, not only in time but in space."
