Located west of Chengdu in the Sichuan province, the bookstore features gravity-defying staircases and infinite bookshelves which looks like it came straight out of one of Dutch artist M.C. Escher’s fever dreams. An article in the Smithsonian wrote that architect Li Xiang, founder of Shanghai-based firm X+Living, designed the 973 square metres bookshop, which draws inspiration from the Unesco World Heritage–listed Dujiangyan irrigation system. Certain architectural elements resemble water, nodding to the many rivers that flow through the city.

The mid-century modern style of interior design was popularized during the 1940s, and remains popular for good reason. Defined by clean lines, organic forms, minimal ornamentation, and high functionality, the style has an undeniably timeless appeal.

The Salt Box Residence is a 2,400 square foot home sited in the low-lying, flood-prone salt marshes of New Jersey’s Barnegat Bay. The client’s brief to Parnagian Architects was to design a lasting replacement for a multi-generational family home that had been damaged beyond repair during Hurricane Sandy. The site is situated at the end of a small peninsula, bound directly to the west by a commercial shipyard and marina, and to the north, south, and east by expansive views of the Barnegat Bay.
Today’s minimalism design is different from the clean-lined perfection of the past. Instead of an idealized idea of the absence of things, contemporary minimalism in interior design today is about eradicating personality and imperfections in favour of a utopian and anti-individual ‘ideal state’. It is about using the absence of things to enhance the meaning of what we chose to retain; quieting the room to enable the chosen pieces to speak clearly about what matters to us.

Like how a skin protects the body, The Tembusu functions as a living host which shelters its inhabitants from the environment. ARC Studio’s high-rise, high-density housing of 337 homes is enlivened by the “living façade” which involved threads of nature around the columns interweaving with the architecture to create an organic exterior bringing the landscape closer to the residential units. It also creates an impression that the landscape drapes over two sky links, creating an even more intimate experience with nature.
