Posted by the editors on Sunday, 8 July 2012

Architecture + Urban Design: Past Its Golden Moment, Bogotá Clings to Hope – by Michael Kimmelman: “..pockets of hope..still endure in works of public architecture built in and around the city, many linked to the rapid bus lines and the bike lanes. Ultimately Bogotá is a reminder that the economic and social lives of neighborhoods and whole cities rise and fall depending on access to public transit, public parks, public spaces..”

Architecture: 2012 Serpentine Pavilion Complete by Herzog & de Meuron + Ai Weiwei: “..the 12th serpentine gallery by swiss architects herzog & de meuron and beijing-based ai weiwei is now complete. a plane of water is now floating above the lawn of the serpentine gallery in london, england, inviting visitors to pass beneath it and observe the recently exposed components of the past structures. eleven columns representing each of the previous editions elevate the roof plane 1.4 meters from the excavated ground while an additional support stands for the current construct. encouraging visitors to delve under the surface, this archeological experience transports them back in time as they lounge within the interior. cork lines the surfaces of the stepped ground plane and seating to generate a warm location for repose. during the summer, the venue will host public talks and events during ‘park nights’ until october 14, 2012..”  Photos by the great Iwan Baan..Get thee to Serpentine..
