Book announcement: Re-inventing Construction

LAVA is included in the latest book
Inspired by the 3rd International Holcim Forum 2010, Mexico City




How must architecture, engineering and construction evolve so that considerations of sustainability are automatically embedded in the way that the built environment is designed, constructed, used and recycled? This challenging question was the nucleus of the 3rd International Holcim Forum held in Mexico City and inspiration for Re-inventing Construction. The 440-page book features articles and case studies by 38 internationally renowned architects, engineers and scholars including Keller Easterling, Bjarke Ingels, Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, Amory Lovins, Elinor Ostrom, Jeremy Rifkin, Michel Rojkind, Werner Sobek, Michael Sorkin, and many others.

LAVA LIGHTS UP for ARTEMIDE

 LAVA LIGHTS UP
LAVA’s new installation LIGHT VOID is touring in an international exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of Artemide, the famous Italian lighting company.
LAVA was one of 50 architects/designers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland invited to design a light installation. The designers were each given a blank, black box 35 x 35 x 35 cm in which to create a personal, visionary work about light for ‘DAS "BLACK BOX" PROJECT’. The only criteria were architectural quality and the use of light. Artemide says the results are 'philosophical, emotional, and mysterious light impressions'

LAVA TAKES SUSTAINABILITY TO SCHOOLS
LAVA'S  amazing renderings for the eco city centre at Masdar in the UAE were the backdrop for the recent State Drama Festival produced by the Arts Unit, NSW Department of Education and Training. The performances were at the Seymour Centre on 28th - 29th October and featured performances on movement and a dialogue about future cities by primary aged kids from across the state.

Designed by Stukel Stone architects the set featured large scale drawings of the sunflower umbrellas opening and closing in the piazza in Masdar. Bosse said: 'this was a wonderful way to engage young kids with environmentally responsible solutions for the cities of their future.'
