Every now and then when we have business to do far abroad, there is some time left to visit architecture and art in the city we are busy. This time we had the opportunity to see a piece of Do Ho Suh in Seoul.
The south korean artist started to rebuild his home with a thin layer of fabric. The space he is able to create with this wonder of craftmansship is amazing. Imagining that this is all hand sewn on a sewing machine blows you away.
Whenever one of his projects is in reach to visit, don’t miss the opportunity.
One of the projects of this semesters bucky lab course, not to forget also the winnner of the 3rd prize and special Romazo sunshade price during this years bold and beautiful award during the gevel 2014 in Rotterdam
We love to take pictures, and after a while we also discovered RAW and therefore also the power of lightroom. Beeing an active member of the german happy shooting community and an active follower of Chris Marquardts podcast tips from the top floor we got the info that Chris did a Lightroom 5 video workshop. More than 6 hours of how to work with Adobes powerful lightroom program.
Next to the very easy to digest information on how to use the program- highly recommended- we are very surprised about the new and innovative manner about the pricing for this educational video set.
If you like to buy the videos, you have to decide which price you like to pay. Pay 15$ if you take pictures with your iPhone and using the program every now and then, till the professional version for the ones who earn money making pictures for 100$ … the difference between the different versions ? Nothing …!
You will get the same videos and bonus material which version you ever choose, its up to you how much this course is worth to you.
Thats something real radical and fresh in our eyes. Get a Ferrari and according to the way you will drive them determine the price.
Lets hope this marketing concept pays off, but it is for sure something we will also think about in our future. Imagine you offer an open bill for your service according to the way your customers like it or think of its value.
We have seen it already years ago, 3D printed food. After developing the FDM process for easy entry level desktop machines people started to experiment which kind of food is possible to process and the cream cheese or chocolatecream logos on crackers become the standard for the Hackers and Makers DIY food.
Now the first professional 3D food printer is available soon for commercial use. It uses the inkjet technology to solidify a powder based building mass. But what do we habe to tell you have a look, Will from tested tasted it on CES.
WE LOVE BOOKS ! – OUR WAY OF WISHING YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR
Yes, we do love books – but the digital world is changing things….so in addition to the established book series imagine (with nai010 publishers) and “principles of construction” (with Birkhäuser) as well as the already very successful blog “imagine-the blog” we developed two additional knowledge distribution channels:
A scientific open access journal, focusing specifically on façade technology: the “Journal for Façade Design and Engineering”, in collaboration with IOS Press Amsterdam. First issue is launched 23.12.2013!
Also, with the support of Alamir Mohsen and Katherina Doulkari, we developed a new website which will function as a kind of scientific outlet: “facadeworld”. Here, we will place information on ongoing research, developments and projects, related to the field of interest: Facades – Made to be beautiful and functional, driven by the interest in new developments. So have a look at: www.facadeworld.com, or follow us at https://www.facebook.com/facadeworld.
The Imagine blog is supported by the Imagine Group which is a network of teachers and constructors – of builders, structural planners and climate designers. The group sees itself as a merger of educational, research and planning institutions working on conceptual and experimental solutions for structural and climate-related challenges.
Imagine Group’s concept is to network the knowledge base according to the tasks and challenges at hand, to provide technical solutions for esthetic and constructive issues. This type of networked collaboration without large, locally fixed hierarchies enables an interdisciplinary, yet topic-related working method that is efficient and – just as important – fun.
You are welcome to enjoy our blog that will include not only our concepts, ideas, news and thoughts but will also offer inspiring topics as well as pictures for your own creative work.
