A HOUSE WITH ROTATING ROOMS

Unlike almost every single house out there, this one has the ability to be open or closed off, introverted or extroverted. Depending on the seasons or the homeowners’ needs, rotating volumes can be turned to change up the interior and the exterior.

Contemporary Architecture At Its Best: Cree Cultural Institute in Canada

Rubin & Rotman Architects completed Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute in the northern Canadian village of Oujé-Bougoumou, paying tribute to local architecture. The building’s concept turns to the Cree people’s traditional longhouse, the shaptuan, and to the particular context of the region. In this village, built in 1992 and unique in many respects, the main buildings were set within a broad circle in the centre. The Aanischaaukamikw Institute rounds out the layout of this space, where the Band Council office is also located.

Seeking Inspiration Midair with @manonwethly

To see more of Manon’s artfully captured images of #flyingstuff, follow @manonwethly.

For Dutch designer Manon Wethlij (@manonwethly), the contents of her arresting #flyingstuff photos are less important than the conversations they provoke. “People are free to see or feel whatever they want in the shapes,” Manon says. “I love that they make people talk to me and ask questions.”

“I studied architecture for two years, then graphic design, but the thing that has always made me happy is photography.” When she found Instagram, Manon says, “it was exactly what I needed to keep my photography enthusiasm alive. I was taking lots of photos every day and just storing them in my computer for no one to see.”

These days, it’s the response to her photos on Instagram that keeps Manon evolving creatively. “Everybody’s enthusiasm encourages me to try new things,” she explains, “It’s sort of addictive.”
