Redesigned Botanic Center Bloom by Vincent Callebaut Architectures

Vincent Callebaut Architectures have released its latest project: Botanic Center Bloom. Located at the entrance of Rue Nueve, Belgium, it’s a building that introduces metamorphosis and energy solidarity, just like caterpillar transformation into a beautiful butterfly. Metamorphosis here doesn’t mean erasing the past but rather integrating the best of the past into the future. The main role of architects are beyond just conservation or restoration, it also involves advocating for a hybrid history, determining to act as forward thinkers, bringing Botanic Center into the 21st century in many fields from technology, functions, to sustainability.

Designed and built in 1977, this Botanic Center looks vertically unfinished. It has 274 identical, ornamental concrete modules. This proposed concept offers to enhance the existing building, or in flowering sense of word, to bloom. Those planter beds and a web of cables function as substrate, dressing the mineral façade with a vegetal envelope to regroup the entire range of the flora edemic to the Brussels area.

Veemenza Concept Car Is A Design Study Inspired by Alfa Romeo Tradition of Performance-Oriented Lines and Proportions

This Veemenza concept car is the result of a year of design development, driven by a profound philosophical, historical and artistic research about the concept of beauty and dynamism expressed in artistic disciplines over time. The formal language of the car is defined by iconic purity, the Alfa Romeo’s characteristics in the 50’s and the muscular dynamism of human body.

The development process has led the designer in a deep analysis of classical sculpture which, despite the simplicity of the surfaces, evokes emotions with its natural tension and dynamism. Investigating the fulcrum of classical sculpture, the human being, the aim of the project was to transfer the elegance, strength and dynamism of the same in the design of the final product. The organic body sculpture can be seen as a natural skin stretching over the mechanical component bringing the drama of a classic Italian supercar into a modern design.
