City of Dreams Hotel Tower, Cotai, Macau by Zaha Hadid



Lawrence Ho, Co-Chairman and CEO of Melco Crown Entertainment, described the new hotel tower as a “key milestone” and “iconic landmark for Cotai and Macau.” Created with Hadid’s signature curves, the building’s boldly exposed exoskeleton gives the tower its striking appearance and reduces the need for internal structural requirements. As a result, Hadid was able to create a series of dramatic interior spaces uninterrupted by structural elements, such as the nearly 100-foot high lobby atrium.

Protected Intersections For Bicyclists



Protected bike lanes are the latest approach US cities are taking to help their residents get around by bike. But these protected lanes lose their buffer separation at intersections, reducing the comfort and safety for people riding.
What the protected bike lane needs is the protected intersection.
This proposal for the George Mason University 2014 Cameron Rian Hays Outside the Box Competition presents a vision for a safe, clear intersection design that improves conditions for all users. Proper design of refuge islands, crossing position and signal timing can create a safe intersection that people of all ages and abilities would feel safe in.

The library is designed for the Delft University of Technology (also known as TU Delft). It is the central library for the campus and is located across from an auditorium that was built in 1966 by Van Den Broek & Bakema. The design of the auditorium was considered a brutalist style, because it is an awkward looking building that resembles a giant frog according to Mecanoo.

Studio Aisslinger transforms the façade of 19 Greek Street gallery, London



London's 19 Greek Street gallery has a bold new look. The six-floor Soho townhouse is currently dressed in a colourful frock of textiles from Danish textile giant Kvadrat for the duration of the London Design Festival. Conceived by German product designer Werner Aisslinger in collaboration with the gallery, the installation - titled 'Architecture, Re-imagined' - challenges the notion of architecture uniformity while looking at the idea of up-cycling, posing the question, 'what if buildings could wear  temporary facades like outfits?'.

The installation ties in neatly with Nina Tolstrup's 'Re-imagined' furniture collection that is on show inside the gallery, for which fabrics are used to dress up recycled furniture.
