The architects at WTL Design, with the help of BMW Building Design Senior Manager, Nicholas Ott, designed the BMW Brand Experience Center in Shanghai using a minimalistic approach. The project marks the first use of GKD’s Mediamesh technology in China. The stunning glass and white design evokes transparency, both in the building itself and the brand’s identity. The 21,500 square foot building utilizes interior Mediamesh screens that are visible from the outside, thanks again to the transparent glass façade.
In the latest Mediamesh® project by GKD, the James Branch Cabell Library at Virginia Commonwealth University is transformed with stainless steel wire mesh interwoven with LED lights. The vitrine where the Mediamesh® sits faces out to the rose plaza; one of the most densely populated places on campus. Two panels of Mediamesh® are interconnected to create the visually stunning and interactive screen that is now a popular attraction for students and visitors.
Retail experts, The Jerde Partnership, who were responsible for the Mall of America and other global and iconic retail projects, recently, completed the highly anticipated $500 million dollar multi-functional complex. The US team completed the Kuntsevo Plaza just a few miles outside the bustling capital of Moscow. Spanning more than a city block, the complex includes retail, residential, public and office spaces, all intertwined to form a city within a city. Large and staggering in design, the project aims to change the economic, social and sustainable climate of Kuntsevo.
Inden, Germany currently has a large open cast brown coal mine. The mine spans 4,500 hectares, yet excavation will end in 2030 when the unusual landscape is transformed into the ‘Der Indeische See,’ a large sporting venue. The city commissioned Maurer United Architects (MUA) to create a watchtower with a landmark design in that location. For this, MUA created the Indemann (the man of the town of Inden), a 118-foot robot that the architects explain, “The Indemann’s design is characterized by its striking external appearance, but the real surprise lies in the staged experiences that the visitors can expect in its interior.”
