V.O.B. - Music: Aloe Blacc

Aloe Blacc | I Need A Dollar | A Take Away Show - Part 1 from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

It’s the story of a man who didn’t speak, who kept a kind of conquering silence around him, who sang for himself. It’s the story of a soul singer who delivers from the stage, but who that day brought the complete opposite: an intimate, reserved performance.

V.O.B. - Architecture: Zaha Hadid, Evelyn Grace Academy

World renowned artist Zaha Hadid recently completed a school in Brixton, south London that features a bright red running track that flows right through it. Designed for ARK Education, the Evelyn Grace Academy is organized into four smaller schools that share outdoor spaces and facilities.

The Academy offers a learning environment that engages students actively. Playgrounds and sports pitches surround the building, while oblique lines stride across the elevations of the structure, veering into curves around the corners.

The structure allows maximum levels of natural light and ventilation to enter. This collective space, shared by all the schools, encourages social communication and interaction.

V.O.B. - Architecture: In Progress: Sliced Porosity Block / Steven Holl Architects

Sliced Porosity Block, CapitaLand ’s new Raffles City in , is a hybrid of different functions like a giant chunk of a metropolis. It will be located just south of the intersection of the First Ring Road and Ren Min Nan Road. Its sun sliced geometry results from required minimum daylight exposures to the surrounding urban fabric prescribed by code and calculated by the precise geometry of sun angles.

The large public space framed by the block is formed into three valleys inspired by a poem of Du Fu (713-770). In some of the porous openings chunks of different buildings are inserted. Our micro urban strategy will create a new terrain of public space; an urban terrace on the metropolitan scale of Rockefeller Center. This new terrain is sculpted by stone steps and ramps with large pools that spill into stepped fountains. Trees, plantings and benches are flanked with cafes. Roof gardens are cultivated through their individual connections to hotel cafes.

At the shop fronts there will be luminous color, neon, backlit color transparency. Like the wash of color that suddenly appears in the great black and white films by Andrei Tarkovsky. The aim for the Sliced Porosity Block is to form new public space and to realize new levels of green construction in . The complex is heated and cooled geothermally by 400 wells. The large podium ponds harvest recycled rainwater with natural grasses and lily pads creating a cooling effect.
