EDITION29 ARCHITECTURE 009
EDITION29 ARCHITECTURE ISSUE 009 starts with a story from the Netherlands in the region of Goirle where Pieter and Thomas Bedaux, a father and son team of architects redefines the traditional saddle roof house and gives it a minimal modern spin and then adds a touch of drama with the addition of a moat like body of water that surrounds parts of the outer perimeter.
Habitats in this issue include the house in Cambeses, Portugal by architect Rui Grazina with its grand solid stepped pathway leading to the simple but solid main building. The wood slates wrapped Summer House by Judith Benzer is meant to be closed shut for most of the winter season and thus is designed to stand as a striped sculpture against the stark barren landscape of Southern Burgenland in Austria.
In the island of Formentera, architect Marià Castelló Martínez creates a simple elegant gem of a house plus office that is set atop a platform surrounded by an endless sea of wheat and barley fields. This issue continues with homes in Serra de Freita, Portugal to the semi-underground 2 level box in Hamburg, Germany by architect Timm Schonberg, and thus continuing in the tradition of bringing stunning architectural habitats from the far corners of the inhabited world.

EDITION29 STRUCTURES ISSUE 004
When a renowned Danish architect decides to construct a new house for himself and his family, you get a structure that changes the habits of the inhabitants. The result is the stunning Rieteiland House by architect Hans van Heeswijks that was designed on a plot of land that is part of a newly established island at IJburg on the outskirts of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Now instead of time at home dominated by watching media, the residents make time daily to enjoy the abundance of sunlight and nature that permeate the landscape seeping into the house. A glass façade covers the wall overlooking the water, while a moveable series of aluminum panels clad over the opposite side allows exposure to even more nature as needed.
Architecture firm Fran Silvestre proposes a landmark tower in Spain that incorporates windmills and solar arrays, a landmark that modifies its proportions depending on the viewpoint and the effect of the sunlight; revealing an element in a constant evolution. An engraved tower devoted to the wind. In Austria, a Wilhelminian Style Villa is converted to a modern office space by architect Michael Neumann.
From the Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion in Snohetta with its carved wooden interior set within a minimal box to the perforated metal clad Raif Dinçkök cultural centre in Turkey, this Issue combs the four corners in bringing a collection of varied modern structures that deserve to be seen and heard about.

Architect Takeshi Hosaka brings abundant natural light into the Daylight House with glass blocks fitted onto the roof that make up segments of the roof providing rays of light into the house.
Canadian architect Michael Taylor creates a simple wooden cabin in the forested regions of Ontario as a private module for the owners of a larger compound. Several slanting roofs arranged to point in two opposing directions provide the small rooms of the Complex House their own independent roofs with abundant natural light seeping in, giving this design a look of two rows of roofs sheltering a family in a tiny plot of land in Nagoya created by the architect Tomohiro Hata.
The Desert House in Paradise Valley, Arizona is a 20 year old structure re-imagined and resurrected by Peter M.

Seven years later in 2010 they reunited with lead vocalist SKYE rejoining the Godfrey Brothers Paul and Ross to bring back the original magic that had cast a spell just a decade or so before. In the late spring of 2011, Morcheeba made it back to play once again in Los Angeles. Morcheeba let our team follow them for that one day in Los Angeles, from the moment the tour bus made its early morning stop in LA to the minute that evening when they walked on to the stage of the Music Box Theatre.
The seminal piece in this Issue features an extensive excerpt from the book KUSTERS ODO YAKUZA TOKYO with a cinematically photographed narrative by Belgian photographer Anton Kusters, who spent about three years to bring this project to fruition.

Issue 007 of Edition29 Architecture continues with a series of modern designed habitations from Japan to a forested area in Mexico.

The seminal story in this Issue is a small two- bedroom structure near a forested region of Cuernavaca in Mexico designed by architect Alfredo Raymundo Cano Briceño as an addition to the main house. Due to the very low budget of about $6,000, this addition was built with recycled materials acquired from left over’s from nearby constructions, a jumble of glass, plastic and wood that transformed the project into a building for children separated in distance from the main house and connected to it by a wooden bridge covered in transparent materials to blend into the forested surroundings.
The cover photograph is the Fran Silvestre designed house near Valencia taken by Fernando Alda and Juan Rodríguez.

EDITION29 THE NEW
EXCERPTS FROM ISSUE 001
The uncertain outcome when you first face the MRI machine that will scan your brain for possible damage hangs high like a guillotine over your head, will it be released or will the pardon come in time. You are all alone. This is about your brain. This is about the rest of your life. As high doses of electro magnetic pulses run through your head what goes on inside. The hammering sound from within the MRI brain scanner terrifies.
To one such patient this hammering is transformed into a rhythm, giving birth to new musical notes and ideas. They say it is POP, is it soft PUNK ROCK? is it an ethereal SOUNDTRACK? It is music. It is collaboration. She reaches out for a hand across the Atlantic to a quiet legend.
Critically acclaimed actress turned singer Charlotte Gainsbourg holds hands with the master sound sculptor and musical poet Beck in a production partnership that delivers soft words sung subtly over inventive semi orchestral sounds. It is experiments in musical notes that deliver for the listener.
The next few pages is a series of photographs and samples of audio and video from the sessions that evolved into the album IRM, the first real collaborative musical foray by Charlotte Gainsbourg. These short pieces of audio and video are taken from the documentary of the collaboration that was created as part of the IRM album.
Other visual stories in this Issue include a cinematic look at the seminal architectural design of 2010, the Seed Cathedral created by Thomas Heatherwick for the 2010 Shanghai Expo. A look at artist Li Wei and his work. Chilean nomadic artist Gianfranco Foschino has been called the modern day Vermeer of Chile by Charlie Finch of ArtNet, a clip from his video art is included in this story. An in-depth look at the ‘Winged Migration’ inspired visual landscape that unfolds in the first super high definition BIKE film “LIFE CYCLES”.
This magazine is a visual summary of amazing creators and a look at their works as can be only seen and experienced on a new medium like the tablet.
ISSUE 003 ARCHITECTURE
In the Issue 003 of Edition29 ARCHITECTURE, the 5 continents theme continues with minimal structures from the Napa Valley in California to a young girl’s Playhouse in Poland. We speak to several of the architects about their work and include serene cinematic clips of the clean lined L shaped Atrium House in Valencia, Spain, designed by Fran Silvestre Navarro and his team. Architect Philipp Tschofen from Austria gives us a look at the innovative rural one room, glass, metal and wood draped addition he constructed for his family to augment the older cottage to which it is attached. The Brick House in Dublin is a small red brick abode that keeps design to the minimum and essential, while the 360 House is a visual contortionist at work, twisting a structural layout into a spiral home that more befits an exhibition space and thus explores the experimental edges of a definition for a house.
This issue pays homage to the simple, geometric structures showing us how small scale living can be at the same time very experimental, utilitarian and visually rewarding.
