The annual H&M collection created in cooperation with a famous fashion house is already a tradition. Every year, in front of the famous chain stores, there are lines of fashion lovers. This year, H&M invited Irish-Chinese designer Simone Rocha to cooperate.
When it comes to the architecture of skyscrapers, there have been a lot of changes recently. More and more architects incorporate a lot of greenery into the body of buildings, they also make sure that the design has the least negative consequences for the environment. Although the latest project by Zaha Hadid Architects is certainly not the first skyscraper with green terraces, its form is simply impressive!
The lack of greenery in large cities is a huge problem: a large number of trees can improve both our mental and physical well-being. Moreover, trees help to clean the air, which is extremely important in the centers of a huge metropolis. Following this philosophy, the Paris authorities decided to turn Champs-Élysées into a green garden.
The plans to demolish the dormitory designed by Louis Kahn sparked protests from architecture fans around the world. Campus officials planned to demolish 14 of the 18 brick buildings designed by the American architect.
This project is the reason why we could go back to school. The 32-meter-high building on the roof has a bicycle track, and the facade is surrounded by stepped balconies covered with greenery.
This house is a perfect example of how to create an environmentally friendly architecture. The building was made of recycled bricks. In addition, the interior is full of interesting accents, and the windows overlook the majestic trees.
We are used to furniture that can be bought in easy-to-transport flat-packs and assembled at home. However, the entire building to be packaged is definitely something new! Meet the Den company, which produces beautiful wooden houses that can be put together in just a few days!
Nowadays, more and more people appreciate contact with nature and the opportunity to rest away from the city noise. Hence the popularity of numerous small huts and summer cottages.
Works of art are the perfect sources of knowledge about what everyday life was like: how people have dressed, where they lived and what was a sign of prestige. Thanks to photography, we are now able to document our everyday life in a very realistic way (unless we overdo it with Instagram filters). However, a few hundred years ago, the only way to capture a person's appearance was painting.
Because of the pandemic, this year's holiday looks completely different than before. More and more people are dreaming about a small house on the plot that would allow them to spend time in the bosom of nature without having to travel far.
After lockdown, the world is slowly coming back to normal. It is not known, however, whether a repetition of spring home quarantine is ahead of us this autumn, all the more so because there are still many countries in which the situation still has not returned to normal. The coronavirus epidemic has certainly had and will have a huge impact on our everyday lives, it has also caused the deaths of 571,000 people around the world.
The coronavirus outbreak certainly had a big impact on our sense of security. It turned out that just in a few days the world can change radically. Although for now it seems that the situation is quite controlled, it is difficult to predict what awaits us in 2020.
