Space of Light - a new interactive tunnel for Design City Kolding in the city of Kolding, Denmark. Winner with the proposal “Interference” was Kollision. The idea behind is that urban life is characterized by two opposing trends: an urge to belong and be part of a community and an opposing desire to be alone and anonymous in the middle of the rush. The dynamic and interactive lighting concept integrated in the tunnel walls that focus on the meeting between people walking through the tunnel. Spotted by missdesignsays.

One of my favorite public buildings in the north-west part of Copenhagen, Denmark is the Library at Rentemestervej. The cultural building by architects COBE and Transform looks like as a stack of books. The golden building has won several awards (e.g. Best Refurbished Building) and is both a library, a community center and an urban space uniting the neighborhood.
The building consists of 4 golden boxes with perforated aluminum displaced in proportion to each other. At ground floor, there’s a children’s library, then a youth library, a library for adults and finally on top, a concert hall.

The new #bigmaze by BIG Architects and Bjarke Ingels at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The large-scale maze is 18 feet high and measuring 61 feet by 61 feet made of Baltic birch plywood.
Inspired by ancient labyrinths, garden and hedge mazes of 17th and 18th-century Europe, and modern American corn mazes, this contemporary maze is located in the West Court of the Museum’s historic Great Hall.
"The concept is simple: as you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted. What if we invert this scenario and create a maze that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth?", says Bjarke Ingels, the Danish architect who founded BIG Architects in 2005 after co-founding PLOT Architects in 2001 and working at OMA in Rotterdam.
From outside, the maze’s cube-like form hides the final reveal behind its 18-foot-tall walls. On the inside, the walls slowly descend towards the center which concludes with a grand reveal—a 360 degree understanding of your path in and how to get out.
The “BIG maze” will be until September 1, 2014. It’s a part of National Building Museums annual Summer Block Party. Also, it’s a teaser offering a sneak peek into the upcoming exhibition “amBIGuity” by BIG Architects opening in 2015.
