Creative deconstruction

Last year, Rotor decided to take their commitment to reuse one step further. Since then, they have deconstructed about fifteen buildings, stripping them down to the base structure and reworking the matter amassed in the process into reusable materials that meet commercial demands. It has become a huge success. 'The turnover of this business already equals our regular work,' says founder Maarten Gielen as we spend the day at Rotor.

High voltage

The idea of providing the city with indispensible electrical energy combined with an installation artwork might seem like an unconventional notion, but if the aim is to attract attention to this hidden world, so fundamental to our daily lives, then it makes perfect sense. Illiz architektur, based in Zurich and Vienna, won the competition to replace and upgrade the existing outdoor switchgear system built in 1949 and managed by Elektrizitätswerk der Stadt Zürich (EWZ). They collaborated with multimedia artist Yves Netzhammer to create an art installation within the triple-storey hall. Anna Roos reports on the new complex that now sits at the heart of one of the largest urban revitalization areas in Switzerland.

Urban power play

This walk through Moscow takes us though the history of Russian architecture of the last twenty years, a period of huge changes reflected in the architecture of the city. Not all of these differences are visible, at least not for those who visit the city for the first time. For new visitors, what the city looked like two decades ago, following Soviet neglect and combined with the period of post-Soviet chaos, is obscure. The developments of recent years have done their best to eradicate this legacy, at least in the inner city, but in back streets and courtyards the keen observer is still able to see its remnants.

Buildings from the margins of modern history

L'Or du Rhin art centre by Ricardo Porro Hidalgo, Vaduz (LI), represents his idealistic and optimistic architectural vision, revealing both his own new world order and a complex cosmology, first applied in the design of the Havana Academy and later continued during his European exile.
