Towers in the Park by Mass Studies Studio

Seoul Commune 2026 investigates the viability of an alternative and sustainable community structure in the overpopulated metropolises of the near future. The imagined community is integrated within the ever-accelerating developments of the digital environment and ongoing rapid social change. Seoul Commune 2026 presents a concrete architectural and urban proposal that entirely reconfigures, and consequently develops the existing towers in the park form.

Design is Best with Stomping

Design is Best with Stomping

I said that and I’ll say it again. Stomping. Design is best with stomping. If you have to stomp to make the device work, then it’s good. Unless it’s a television. This is what you throw the tiny broken tv into. Then you stomp it. With the ironically titled “Armstrong Bin” compression dustbin, you can compact your trash and get a total thumbs up from the earth that the garbage is inevitably going to fill up!

Beautifully Disposed Trash

Beautifully Disposed Trash

The sight of ugly trash bins in scenic parks certainly mars the natural beauty. Bryant Park Litter Receptacles and Recycling Bins put an end to the eyesores and appear as inspirational pieces that urge us to be responsible citizens. The bins come in three variations, one for general trash, one for papers and one for cans and bottles. The linear detailing, colors and operational slits match the function of each bin.

New Taipei City Museum of Art

New Taipei City Museum of Art

The New Taipei City Museum of Art should propose a new paradigm for celebrating art in Taipei, one that brings lifestyle, art, recreation and education together to celebrate a vibrant cultural identity for the community. The existing park located at the meeting of the Yingge and Dahan rivers within which the Museum sits, is one that immediately reveals a dynamic juxtaposition between the constructed nature (the park environment) and the density and “urban” scale of the surrounding hillside context.

Energy Seed: A Yanko Love Story

Energy Seed: A Yanko Love Story

Listen, we all love Sungwoo Park here, don’t deny it. There’s been more than one satisfied reader here on Yanko when it comes to Sungwoo. But this time, the reader took an extra step and became an inspired advocate for action. This reader cum designer, Jerome Demers, took the Sungwoo Energy Seed concept and made it DIY and desktop sized. Don’t you want to play along with the “dead” batteries too?

Rolling Bundle To Park Your Tushy

Rolling Bundle To Park Your Tushy

Although intended for small apartments that demand functional furniture, I don’t see why we can’t include the Zip-Up Chair in mansions. I love the simple methodology used in wrapping up a bundle of oversized upholstered swabs; and encasing them in a zipper sleeve. Zip open, turn down a few swabs and park your posterior onto an impromptu stool. Kitsch and comfy!

Virtual Park by Pierre Haulot

Virtual Park by Pierre Haulot

At night-time it’s difficult to practice sports because of the diminished visual references. The idea is to consider this parameter not as a handicap but as a way to value the other senses, the imaginary and the imagination. Virtual Park is a light spray which ables you to play in the dark and to create your own playground and environment and so your own game. Two hours later there will be no trace. The game is over. Have no limit, play anywhere!

Twenty-seven Captivating Skyscrapers From The Future

Twenty-seven Captivating Skyscrapers From The Future

It takes a lot of courage to imagine building a buoyant skyscraper that rebuilds the arctic ice caps or a structure that shifts your living-scape from the ground to the skies, literally. The future of our living quarters depends a lot upon how we treat our resources today. Going by these Twenty-seven Captivating Skyscrapers (3 award-winning and 24 honorable mentions), looks like we still need to do a lot for our mother earth. Have a look at some really creative, ingenious and dynamic vertical communities, seen through the eyes of eVolo

HOW TO STICK IT IN...

HOW TO STICK IT IN…

We have all been there before. It’s late, you’ve had a few drinks, you really want to get your “creative” juices flowing. You have an idea of what you really want to do but unless you get your tools up to speed, you are just limping along. Fumbling with our “lead” and trying in vain to get it in the right hole can be a mission. Precise alignment is often a make or break proposition and getting it wrong can be embarrassing. No one knows these issues more than designers Hoyoung Lee, Youngwoo Park & Jungmin Park.

13 Park Square Mews

13 Park Square Mews

Belsize Architects have designed another spectacular home, No. 13, which is a small, contemporary mews house in London’s historical Regents Park. The architects looked at the project as a way of showing how a modern building could be designed on a small site in a historic part of London, and give a feeling of being much larger than it is while creating a sense of privacy.

The High Line Park by Diller Scofido & Renfro

The High Line Park by Diller Scofido & Renfro

The master plan for The High Line, an elevated railroad spur stretching 1.45 miles along Manhattan’s Westside, is inspired by the melancholic, unruly beauty of the ruin today where nature has reclaimed a once vital piece of urban infrastructure, The team retools this industrial conveyance into a postindustrial instrument of leisure reflection about the very categories of “nature” and “culture” in our time.
