:vasarely – a museum and an exibition / cosmina goagea

Post de: Cosmina Goagea

There is a Vasarely museum in Budapest. Not really known, rather modest in terms of display, not easily accessible in terms of location. (I was there one month ago and would have appreciated if someone could have explained that: you first need to go by Hev underground from Margareta bridge to the third stop, at Arpad bridge. The building is at no. 6, Szentelek street.) However, it has some of the most valuable works produced by Victor Vasarely, and a full op-art experience that should not be missed when visiting Budapest.

:house in carabbia, ticino – switzerland / davide macullo

Post de: Davide Macullo

After Snozzi, Galfetti, Vacchini, Botta and many others belonging to the same generation have changed international architecture, the Swiss Canton of Ticino keeps on producing remarkable architectural works. Davide Macullo established his own studio in 2000, after having worked with Mario Botta. The three houses featured below further the modern tradition of Ticino by inserting themselves into the landscape and interpreting the genius loci, while adding some more formal freedom and sensual atmosphere.

The office building at no 85, Buzesti Street

This office building was done in 2006. It was designed by Office Design and published in the 54 issue, May 2007, of “Arhitectura”. As you can see, the side blind wall was painted pink, while the touching banner covers three thirds of the facade. In case you can’t understand or refuse to believe, it is the very same building. Let us find the differences!
