For several years purpose.fr magazine has been offering space to well-known and unknown photographers who question our world, bringing together photography and contemporary musical compositions. Today we are opening our work to the publication of books, magazines, fanzines… with the creation of PURPOSE ÉDITIONS. We are delighted to present our first publication: Jean-Jaurès, a photographic book by Gilles Raynaldy. During three years, Gilles Raynaldy observed the everyday life of students, professors and staff of a school establishment in Montreuil near Paris: “the cité scolaire Jean-Jaurès”. Gilles Raynaldy’s photographs are both distant and very close to their subjects, they capture the multiple facets of a complex reality: individual gestures, movements of groups, attitudes, postures and signs of adolescence. As in a film, the book moves through the seasons of the school year; it opens classroom doors, it shows playgrounds, laboratories, kitchens, the dining hall… places that are sometimes bustling with people and sometimes silent. Shots of the exhibition which was organized by the photographer in the “cité scolaire” mingle with these black and white and colour photographs. This exhibition in situ accompanied the students’ life for a few months, forming one body with the buildings’ walls. Release date 11th June 2015 Available in bookstores and on purpose.fr read more »purpose.fr

Born in Brescia, Giacomo Filippini grew in close contact with art, wandering in the laboratory of his mother, Giuliana Geronazzo, famous artist from Brescia. A vantage viewpoint, a living room where he could understand the movements and personalities that have built the history of contemporary art of Brescia. It is precisely in the workshop in via Quinzano that Giacomo takes his first steps, building his first works with glass. Teacher of art and life Gero was an indispensable starting point from which Giacomo began to build his identity. Through time Giacomo experiments new techniques, including ceramics and raku. Finally, the first sight with iron. First is the iron combined with glass. The strength of iron is opposed to the more fragile exists in nature fascinates Giacomo. The antithesis is the synthesis of these works: energy versus frailty, the metal that does not leave pass light against the transparency, the colour black approached with which glass is painted . The figure of Giacomo in the contemporary artistic scene, however, is defined with his iron works, which are also the biggest part of its production.

Sculptress and painter: born in Bergamo, Giuliana Geronazzo lives and works in Brescia, with her own open art studio. After her early studies and exams at Liceo Artistico of Venice, Giuliana starts her personal quest in matter of sculpture: terracotta, bronze, wood, glass resin, raku and glass are the materials and techniques she is nowday engaged in.
From 1986 to 1988 she specializes with internships in raku and ceramic technique in Faenza, with Prof. Galassi Mariani Cimatti. In 1990 in Germany she attends internships of glass fusion techniques. From 1995 collaborates with Museo Preistorico dell’Alto Mantovano: excavations and teaching activities. In her laboratory and in the museum, where a specific path has been set up, Giuliana collaborates at courses of clay modeling also for hyposeeing and blind people: this project is done with a specialized team.
At present she organizes several didactic projects with schools.
“Under, above and inside glass” is the emblematic title Giuliana Geronazzo uses to present her glass works at Villa Pomini in 2001. Informal works, three-dimensional objects through “contemporaneity of glass”, because glass is only volume and what is enclosed inside is only transparency. Works resulting from a rich variegated journey, where studies and research marked a series of important transitions from painting to sculpture, to ceramic, to glass seen like “ union between painting and sculpture” (Franco Azimonti, Councillor for Culture at Castellanza).
“Glass with its numerous applications allows a further deepening of stylistic sphere…the value of light becomes fundamental; light, expressed through strokes, intrusion, bubbles, bravura of spirals, becomes a kind of renewed brush which works out forms and suggests mind patterns…. abstract installations the Artist seems to better build new expressive solutions in, somehow innovative, but also rooted into her history…For Gero fortune is in her hands…” (Mauro Corradini, art critic – Monograph 2009).
Giuliana is present in international art catalogues. Her works are held at both public and private collections. Her sacred art works are displayed in some churches in Brescia and Milano. Solo and group exhibitions and some art pieces are visible on this website.

MARKED BY VIBRANT ORDER WRITING, ENERGETIC ACTIVITY
LAS VEGAS – (January 18, 2015) – Winter Las Vegas Market – which opened today and runs through Thursday, January 22, 2015 – is drawing rave reviews for the dramatic resource expansion in the Market’s furniture, gift and home décor offerings as well as other changes and improvements throughout campus. Las Vegas Market has experienced explosive growth in leasing activity during the run-up to Winter Market, with numerous showroom expansions by leading vendors, showroom openings by new-to-market resources, and record numbers of temporary exhibitors.
“It’s the first day of Winter Market and there’s such an incredible buzz throughout our campus,” said Robert Maricich, chief executive officer of International Market Centers. “Buyers and designers are filling our hallways to take in all the new companies here for the first time which is translating to the showroom floor. Exhibitors are reporting heavy, consistent traffic and strong order-writing. It’s wonderful to see.”
Day one turn-out mirrored pre-registration indicators with strong attendance by gift and home décor retailers, which supplement the existing furniture buyer base that has been coming to Las Vegas Market since the very beginning, nearly 10 years ago. Furniture buying power remains strong at Market, with 82 of the top 100 retailers registered.
“We've seen a good number of accounts this morning,” said Jeff Lankford, General Sales manager with Steve Silver Company. “We view this as a west coast market and we're seeing west coast dealers that we've never seen before, so that's good. We've already seen about half a dozen of our top 100 retailers – Las Vegas Winter Market is off to a good start.”
“Today being the first day, we meet lots of new faces and see the potential and opportunity for building both our brands – JURA and Capresso,” said David Shull, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing for JURA, Inc.
Among opening day highlights was the unveiling of Las Vegas Market’s FIRST LOOK trend presentation, which distills the many thousands of new products available at Winter Market into four key trend themes: “Livable Luxury,” “A Tasteful Hue,” “The Colorful Outdoors” and “Modern Boutique” – each highlighting important decorating and merchandising trends for 2015.
Key findings of the design report include an overall softening of the color palette: Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, Marsala, for instance, is not as bright as the group’s recent colors of the year. “A Tasteful Hue” illustrates the role this robust red will play in creating monochromatic interiors; “Livable Luxury,” meanwhile, signals a rise in pastels for 2015; metallic finishes are the perfect foil for these surprisingly livable hues; “The Colorful Outdoors” showcases a variety of products and design themes suitable for summer living and al fresco décor; and “Modern Boutique” presents and promotes the cross-category shopping synergies available in showrooms throughout Winter Market.
Las Vegas Market is the leading furniture, home decor and gift marketplace in the western U.S., presenting 2,200+ gift, home décor and furniture resources in an unrivaled market destination. Las Vegas Market features thousands of gift, furniture and home décor lines, allowing for cross-category commerce among these industries. The Winter 2015 Las Vegas Market runs January 18-22, 2015, at World Market Center Las Vegas. read more »

eVolo Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Skyscraper Competition. The award was established in 2006 to recognize outstanding ideas for vertical living. Since then, the publication has received more than 6,000 projects that envision the future of building high. These ideas, through the novel use of technology, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations, challenge the way we understand vertical architecture and its relationship with the natural and built environments.
In 2015, the Jury, formed by leaders of the architecture and design fields selected 3 winners and 15 honorable mentions. eVolo Magazine received 480 projects from all continents. The winners were selected for their creativity, ingenuity, and understanding of dynamic and adaptive vertical communities.
The first place was awarded to BOMP (Ewa Odyjas, Agnieszka Morga, Konrad Basan, and Jakub Pudo) from Poland for their project Essence Skyscraper. The proposal is an urban mega-structure that contains diverse natural habitats. The skyscraper would serve as a place to briefly escape urban life and stimulate diverse and complex experiences.
The recipients of the second place are Suraksha Bhatla and Sharan Sundar from India for their Shanty-Scaper. The project seeks to provide housing, work and recreational spaces to the inhabitants of Chennai city’s slum in India. The skyscraper is designed to reutilize the city’s post-construction debris including pipes, corrugated metal sheets, timber, etc.
The third place was awarded to Egor Orlov from Russia for the project Cybertopia which reimagines the city of the future as the combination of digital and physical worlds – a city that grows and morphs instantly according to our needs.
The 15 honorable mentions include skyscrapers designed for the arctic, structures that intend to reverse desertification, abandoned oil rigs transformed into bio-habitats, and atmosphere laboratories among others.
The members of the Jury are: Massimiliano Fuksas [principal Studio Fuksas], Michael Hansmeyer [CAAD group at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology], Richard Hassell [principal WOHA], Alvin Huang [principal Synthesis Design + Architecture], Yong Ju Lee [winner 2014 eVolo Skyscraper Competition], Wenchian Shi [project manager MVRDV], Wong Mun Summ [principal WOHA], and Benedetta Tagliabue [principal EMBT Miralles Tagliabue].

In designing the ENEL Pavilion for Expo 2015, Piuarch wanted to express the concept of “energy sharing” in an architectural theme. Not through a “building-container,” but rather with the creation of a virtual volume: a place, generated by a grid onto which 650 polycarbonate vectors are grafted. The arrangement of these constantly changing, illuminated vertical elements defines the volume that encompasses within itself a series of other volumes and green courtyards. http://youtu.be/_L_2pu2k3RA
THE STRUCTURE OF THE SMART GRID
The pavilion occupies an area of 900 sq.m., overlooking the Decumano (main east-west road). The initial matrix of the project is the intelligent network that ENEL created to power the EXPO site. The basic element of the space – both conceptual and structural – is the grid which can be seen on the ground. It is precisely this grid which, by means of a network created with metallic elements carrying the distribution of electricity and the flow of data, conveys the idea of energy sharing. This network is spread across the floor and gives the system a wavy pattern. Grafted onto the network are vectors that represent the system’s nerve endings. Made from clear polycarbonate tubes with a diameter of 150 mm and a height varying between 5.3 and 7 meters, the vectors create a virtual forest, illuminated by a series of LED lights placed on the grid.
INTERACTION AND PERCEPTION
The interaction between the visitor and the environment is a fundamental part of the concept. The perception that the visitors will have of the virtual volume changes continuously in relation to the point of observation and the movement of people: the alignment, disalignment and overlapping of the vertical elements produces a continuous changing of the visitors’ perception of the space. The kinetic effect is accentuated by the vibration produced by the variations of the light. The project also proposes a playful aspect that allows the visitor to penetrate freely into the “forest” and to interact with the vectors through unexpected situations of light and sound. Green plays an especially important role in enhancing the experience; in both the three densely wooded courtyards and the areas surrounding the pavilion a great variety of plants and herbs are used that belong to the “Mediterranean garden.” Full of colorful, lingering blossoms, these are designed to adapt to the changing seasons, expressing their message for the entire duration of the Expo.
THE VISIT EXPERIENCE
An elevated walkway is the dynamic experiential path that leads visitors through both the virtual forest and the natural forest. The lush green courtyards make the topic of sustainability the beating heart of the system. The wooden walkway is covered by a printed glass roof that protects against rain and creates a shaded space. A nebulizer system adds to the walk and soft music creates an evocative atmosphere. An interactive informational strip running along the entire path leads visitors into the virtual forest.
THE CONTROL ROOM
The Control Room is the operational and nerve center of the entire ecosystem. This mirrored environment is inside the virtual forest, and films and interactive elements allows the visitor to understand how the entire intelligent system works. This is complemented by a stage machine composed by kinetic mirrored elements that echo the pattern of the network even in the control room. A second glassed area has a showroom and entertainment areas that have the virtual forest on one side and a terrace on the other. The glass surfaces are treated to create varying degrees of transparency and reflection, producing a feeling of lightness. The system is powered by energy obtained from photovoltaic panels installed on the pavilion. read more »

Entitled as “Hidden Treasures“ the exhibition holds for the first time a concrete metatopic, of which every of the 14 galleries is inspired by. Therefor it creates on a superior level a diverse metatopic-related exhibition of different positions. The aim of this event is the intercultural exchange and the presentation and imparting of Contemporary Art. Each artwork is linked to the exhibition topic and of course can be purchased. The entrance is free. The project takes place in collaboration with the Kulturbüro Elisabeth. During the opening on 30th of April the artist and musician Melle presents at 8 p.m. a musical performance. read more »www.iamsterdamyouberlin.com

Guido Moretti is the second of three sons, was born on 12 August 1947 at 20 Via Gramsci, Gardone V.T. His father Luigi was a carpenter and used part of the hallway of the house as his workroom. Later, he was able to set up his own furniture factory. Guido much preferred his father's carpenter's shop to school desks.
Guido completed the senior section at the main school in Brescia, where he discovered and was captivated by the beauty of analytical geometry. Then he entered to the Faculty of Engineering at Padua University in 1967. There he created his first sculptures in plastiline. Completed first two years of university, Guido switched to the Faculty of Physics and moved to Milan. In that time he was considering teaching as a carrier. During this time in Milan his sculpting output increased.
In 1973, he settled in Brescia and graduated in Phisics. In the beginning of 1974 Guido started to teach in various schools. He became involved with the Loggetta artistic group and followed various courses in drawing and ceramics. In 80s his creativity knew no bounds: from stratifications he moved on to rotations followed by orthogonal intersections. He created a set of sculptures of orthogonal intersections with various optical illusion shapes and impossible figures.
Photos of his sculptures were published in several Italian magazines. Also his sculptures are part of collections of various museums.
Since 1996 he has worked with Anna Canali's Milan gallery Arte Struktura.

Guido Moretti Scultore - Architettura Arte Contemporanea
La mostra sarà aperta dal martedì al sabato dalle ore 15,30 alle ore 19,30 fino al 24 ottobre 2015 Le opere esposte, oltre 20, sono in bronzo, plexiglas, nylon, alluminio coloratissimo. Forme spiazzanti realizzate con un originale metodo che talvolta raggiunge la magia dell’illusione e a volte si astrae nella perfezione matematica. Guido Moretti, nato nel 1947 a Gardone Val Trompia, cresce giocando e costruendo i suoi giocattoli con il legno nel laboratorio del padre. Questo materiale lo affascina e gli consente di sviluppare la propria manualità. Laureato in fisica, diventa insegnante, organizza e frequenta corsi di disegno e di affresco. Inizia la sua ricerca dapprima nel mondo del figurativo poi nel mondo della scienza, e associando le sue conoscenze matematiche e fisiche, trova una sua personalissima linea che lo porteranno ad ottenere prestigiose onorificenze sia in Italia che all’estero. Nel 2004 Pubblica il libro “La Terza Via Alla Scultura” in cui documenta più di venti anni della sua originale ricerca plastica. Il direttore del più grande centro mondiale d’arte illusoria di Los Angeles, Mr. Al Seckel, pubblica il suo libro “MASTERS OF DECEPTION” in cui dedica un intero capitolo al lavoro di Guido Moretti. Partecipa a numerose mostre e fiere d’arte in Italia e all’estero, tenendo spesso anche conferenze sul suo originale metodo di lavoro. Nel 2009 è stato invitato dall’Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Toronto ad allestire un sua mostra personale. Negli anni 2012- 2013 viene onorato nell’ambito della 1° e 2° “grande festa della matematica al parco OLTREMARE di Riccione” con una mostra personale. Attualmente, in Australia, una sua opera il “Cubo-non Cubo”, è usata come oggetto di scena nelle riprese del film “Other Life” dal regista Ben C. Lucas tratto dal romanzo “Solitaire” di Kelley Eskridge, sua estimatrice. read more »

[ours] Hyperlocalization of Architecture: Contemporary Sustainable Archetypes Hardcover – September 1, 2015 by Andrew Michler (Author)
CHICAGO - Volume Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with Stanley Tigerman, 821 Stanley Tigerman Sketches 821, opening October 24th from 4-8 PM at 845 West Washington Blvd, Chicago. The story of the 821 sketches of Stanley Tigerman begins with a road trip following the premier Venice Architecture Biennale, and culminating nearly 40 years later with the first Chicago Architecture Biennial. From 1976 to the present, Tigerman has maintained a constant flow of sketchbooks roughly divided into three main categories: Architectural, Travel, and Architoon sketches. The continuation of sketching, as opposed to photographing a vacation or building, is equally met with a “no shit, I am an architect, I sketch” attitude that suddenly illuminates their meditative quality. The images lose their ‘sketchiness’ and turn into studies in place, philosophy, religion, building, etc. Tigerman’s sense of recall is fully displayed; a rendered church from a trip in France becomes an Architectural sketch for a residence after ten years, and morphs once again 20 years later playing a role in the religious grappling of his Architoon drawings. Viewing the work, which is displayed chronologically, themes begin to emerge and narratives reveal themselves. There are celebrations of life and death, there are periods of extreme activity and drought, there are quick jots, and later, the work of a contemplative life.
Stanley Tigerman a principal in the Chicago architectural and design firm of Tigerman McCurry and a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Stanley Tigerman has thus far designed over 450 buildings and installations around the world throughout his 51 years in private practice. He was the founding member of “The Chicago Seven” as well as the Chicago Architectural Club. In 2008, Mr. Tigerman was named the recipient of the AIA/ACSA Topaz Medallion for Excellence in Architectural Education as well as the AIA Illinois Gold Medal in recognition of outstanding lifetime service. Stanley Tigerman was honored by AIA Chicago with the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award. The author of seven books, he recently completed an essay on “erring” for Perspecta, Yale Architecture School’s journal due out in the fall and is currently working on his next manuscript on “Aura: Unattainable Architectural Longings.” read more »

eVolo Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition. The award recognizes innovative design and creates a forum for the discussion and development of the discipline. What is the future of furniture design? eVolo Magazine received 233 entries from 34 different countries. The Jury selected 3 winners and 20 honorable mentions. The first place was awarded to I-Ting Tsai, Xixi Zheng, Yiru Yun, and Somdatta Majumdar from the United Kingdom for the design of Fabric Chair. This project is an investigation on the use of fabric as a structural material in furniture design. A special resin was developed to harden fabric placed on a rigid mold. The resin hardens the fabric to become structural while retaining its softness in specific locations. Studio La Cube from Spain received the second place for their project Simmis Chair. This simple and elegant design is a study on symmetry and proportions. The goal was to create a dialogue between visual lightness and the strength and heaviness of wood and steel. The third place was awarded to Open Source Workshop from Italy and the United States for the design of Helix, a diffuse furniture system that generates a continuous interior space by adapting simultaneously to any vertical and horizontal surface while defining an immersive spatial atmosphere. The honorable mentions include materials explorations, the use of digital design and manufacturing processes as well as studies in ergonomics and experiential possibilities. The members of the Jury are: Ammar Eloueini [principal Ammar Eloueini Digit-all Studio], Joel Escalona [principal Joel Escalona Studio, NONO], Mitchell Joachim [principal Terraform ONE], Po Shun Leong [principal Po Shun Leong Design], and Alexander Lervik [principal Lervik Design AB].
