Born in Geneva, trained in Rome and living in London, Hélène Binet has carved a niche for herself as a photographer who brings buildings to life. More than simply using good lighting or finding a nice angle (though of course she does this too) Binet understands the poetry in architecture and this is what she translates into her photographs.
She has developed a long term relationship with Architect Peter Zumthor, for whom she photographed several of his masterpieces with timeless shot from a very poetic Architecture.

As read in Cyanmag, it seems that Mr Jacques Herzog from Herzog & DeMeuron has fallen in love with the Spanish Canary Islands, after having built a couple buildings in Tenerife for the past years. Therefore he and his family now own this happy place with an ocean view, designed by Herzog himself for his own enjoyment.


Usually when Architects build for themselves, they tend to experiment more and break some rules. This house seems to be interesting, with a clear aesthetic of Southern Spanish Architecture and built with traditional and local materials. Let's hope that in the future we can, at least see some interior shots of the house.

Swedish Architects Tham & Videgård Arkitekter just completed this inspiring and unique room for the tree hotel in the far north of Sweden, near the small village of Harads, close to the polar circle. A lightweight aluminium structure hung around a tree trunk, a 4x4x4 meters box clad in mirrored glass. The exterior reflects the surroundings and the sky, creating a camouflaged refuge. The interior is all made of plywood and the windows give a 360 degree view of the surroundings.


The construction also alludes to how man relates to nature, how we use high tech materials and products when exploring remote places in harsh climates (Gore-tex, Kevlar, composite materials, light weight tents etc).The functions included provides for a living for two people; a double bed, a small bath room, a living room and a roof terrace. Access to the cabin is by a rope bridge connected to the next tree.
To prevent birds colliding with the reflective glass, a transparent ultraviolet colour is laminated into the glass panes which are visible for birds only.

Dutch Photographer Iwan Baan, one of our favourites, has been invited by the Villa Noailles in Hyeres, France to be the subject of a Photography exhibition entitled, ’2010 around the world – the diary of a year of architecture’. Having redefined the medium of Architectural Photography since his unexpected entry in 2005, the winner of the inaugural Julius Shulman prize has captured some of today’s most important built spaces.
If you can pass by, don’t miss this chance to check out his gorgeous works.

Portuguese Architect João Luís Carrilho da Graça has recently completed this abstract and scenographic Museum for the Archeological site of Praça Nova in the São Jorge Castle in Lisbon, featuring floating walls along the existing ruins.
Dating from the Iron Age, the hill where the castle stands is the first known settlement of the place that became Lisbon, strategic vantage point overlooking the estuary of the Tagus and its inland territory. Since then, there have been countless layers of historical ages that have occupied this place, resulting now in a contemporary Museum of the archaeological vestiges of what remains.

The Pritzker Architecture Prize 2011 has been awarded to the Portuguese Architect Eduardo Souto de Moura. He is surely one of the great Masters of the Portuguese Contemporary Architecture. Born and raised in the city of Porto, he has been a disciple of Álvaro Siza Vieira, who has also won the Pritzker Prize in 1992. These two generations of Architects, along with an older one of Fernando Távora, have been responsible for making the city of Porto a great destination to visit great contemporary Architecture, while also designing some interesting buildings across the globe.
