Tamedia New Office Building Shigeru Ban Architects

"This new headquarters and radio studios for the Swiss media company Tamedia is situated in the heart of Zurich. On a 1,000m² site within a larger urban block where the main buildings of the group are currently located. The site faces to the east part of the block and has the possibility of developing almost 165 feet of façade facingthe Sihl canal.

From an architectural point of view one of the main features of the project is indeed the proposition of a main structural system entirely designed in timber where its innovative character from a technical and environmental standpoint, gives the building a unique appearance from the interior space as well as from the surrounding city. In order to reinforce and express this idea the building skin is entirely glazed and special attention was given to achieve low energy transmission levels that respond to the latest and very strict Swiss regulations for energy consumption.”

Beautifully Repeating Skeletal Sculptures by Monika Horčicová

Czech artist Monika Horčicová creates sculptures using the repeating forms of the human skeleton. Far from being creepy, her works are beautifully complex studies of a familiar form, revealed through the use of unusual orientations and numbers.

Her “Wheel of Life” is a perfect example. Here we see 58 repeating legs and feet arrayed in a wheel-like form; the knees remaining straight until they reach the ground in what looks like a never-ending series of forward steps. At the center, or hub of the sculpture, is a fused series of hip bones forming a perfect fan.
