Rethinking The Future was born out of the need for a platform that encourages and promotes excellence in architecture on a global scale. It is something unique that allows architects to seek inspiration, criticism, and development.

For more than half a decade, RTF has been a leading organization committed to providing an international opportunity to know and recognize design talent from around the world, but also to celebrate and share the knowledge created through a wide range of awards, events and academic dialogues in the field of architecture and design.

On August 27, RTF announced the results of the 2019 Global Architecture and Design Awards in New Delhi. Their purpose is to celebrate diversity in world architecture. This year, the competition has received over 2000 entries from more than 40 countries. We see a selection of the top-ranked projects and their categories, for the building’s section.

Lincoln Theater by Kobi Karp Architecture And Interior Design Inc (Commercial)

Originally designed by Thomas W. Lamb in 1936, Kobi Karp Architects restored and refurbished this old four-story theatre structure, adapting it to a commercial space with shops and offices. The large double volume structure houses the international retailer H&M.

Church Nianing by IN SITU architecture (Cultural)

The project for this unusual church is located in Nianing, south of Dakar, on the so-called “shell coast”. The project takes the form of a spiral shell. It is shielded to the north to protect against the hot, dry winds of Harmattan, and opens westwards to let in the fresh wind from the sea. The bell tower functions as a real “wind tower” that uses the structure to bring the trade winds inside the building and to create natural ventilation.

Continuos Extention by Plasma Studio (Hospitality)

The Resort was born again from a small guesthouse of the ’60s, later enlarged in the ’70s by the Austrian architect Peter Thurner who made it a family hotel. Over the years, apartments have been added and in 2007 the Strata Hotel was completed by the Plasma studio: an elegant and light construction of horizontal larch sticks that detaches from the building crosses it and seems to grow out of the surrounding topography.

15 Unit Apartment Building by Metaform Architects (Housing – more than 5 floors)

When it comes to housing in urban areas, one of the main problems facing people is the need to choose a type of apartment over single-family homes. The reasons are simple, such as the lack of visual and acoustic privacy, due to the proximity of neighbors; the physical space insufficient in various forms for a life of comfort. The construction of these apartments has been addressed.

It is an urban block of elevated residential units, which has been planned in a very traditional way for retailers and services in the neighborhood. The project is around a ‘secret garden’ in the center of the city of Miami Beach.

Private Office in Chicago by Alvisi Kirimoto (Corporate Interior)

With an area of 2600 square meters, the project by Alvisi Kirimoto occupies the 32nd floor of 224. It is suspended in the clouds of Chicago West Loop. Bordered by large windows overlooking the surrounding skyscrapers, the interiors are composed of large spaces, natural wood walls that dematerialize like slit dividers, allowing you to completely divide a room or join it to another. There is also room for fun and a table tennis.

Tongling Recluse by RSAA/ Büro Ziyu Zhuang (Private Residence)

In today’s architectural practice in China, tradition and modernity intertwine and live together, just like at Tongling Recluse. Protected on top of the mountain, this house has been in very poor condition and abandoned for over ten years. The plan was then designed and expanded to access one side of the mountain, to create a new space for the living room and much more.

The church is located in the middle of a new urban center surrounded by a picturesque mountain landscape. The main entrance overlooks a square. Above the entrance canopy, the facade is a large flat wall. The complex is a large modern church that results in an abstract sketch of traditional churches.

Restyling of Valle Aurelia Railway Station Rome Italy by AMAART (Transportation)

The dialogue between the Valle Aurelia station and the city takes place through the design of an urban space that speaks with the design of the visible skin that bends and envelops the structure of the existing building. The external structure is intended to be light and immaterial, while the interiors are a continuous dialogue with users and the city.

Andreas Levers and the mystery of the city at night

Andreas Levers and the mystery of the city at night

Giulia Guido · 6 days ago · Photography

While everyone is taking pictures of him working, while everyone is asleep he takes pictures. I’m talking about Andreas Levers, a photographer based in Potsdam who spends his nights in the streets of the city trying to capture their most mysterious and dark side. It’s not the first time we’ve talked about his series At Night, but after three years we were very happy to discover that Andreas didn’t get tired of this magical subject and kept shooting. 

The nights that attract the photographer the most are those dark, cold nights when the fog falls and covers the top floors of the skyscrapers and allows you to see only what is really close to you. The rest remains a mystery, amplified by the white lights of the street lamps and neon lights, unable to penetrate the mist. 

But while the light, of course, cannot reveal what is beyond the visible, our mind has already embarked on a fantastic journey: like Andreas Levers, we too walk in the dark, trying not to be seen, as if we were following someone, or as if someone were following us. 

The calm, the awareness of being alone, the only awakenings surround us and accompany us once again in scenarios that never lose their charm.

We hope that At Night will never end, that like us can’t wait to see the next picture, Andreas Levers can’t wait to go down the street, when the city falls asleep and the magic becomes reality. 

Check out the new shots from the At Night photo series below and to stay up to date on Andreas Levers’ work go to his website and follow him on Instagram

Cinematography – The Grand Budapest Hotel

Cinematography – The Grand Budapest Hotel

Giordana Bonanno · 6 days ago · Photography

Friday is here, again, and this weekend we’ll have some time to dedicate to our favorite hobby: watch a movie. If you run out of ideas don’t worry, you won’t waste time because we have already chosen The Grand Budapest Hotel, a movie that everyone has seen once in their life, but two are always better than one.

It’s certainly Wes Anderson‘s most intricate and interesting film and most likely also the director’s aesthetic and narrative masterpiece. It won nine nominations at the Oscars in 2015, triumphing in the categories “Best Costume”, “Best Set Design“, “Best Makeup” and “Best Soundtrack”; at the Globe, instead, the film won as “Best Comedy or Music”.

(Still undecided whether to watch it?)

The story is certainly as bizarre as the characters in it, sometimes so intricate that it seems impossible to get out of it, yet there’s nothing impossible inside that mysterious hotel because everything is suspended in a surreal, earthly world.

Wes, with the director of photography Robert Yeoman, creates every single scene taking into account the most imperceptible details in order to produce perfect images even in the pause; the color choices are his strong point, all the films have a palette of reference so as to conquer memorability among the memories of anyone who has already seen them.

Colors play an important role since they determine two types of scenes: for the harmonious and calm ones the selection of soft and pastel colors prevails, while the pressing and alienating ones they appear under strong color combinations. Needless to say that photography represents the key element in the cinematographic realization and needless to say that in this Wes is its master.

There is no doubt: his aesthetic and artistic imagination is unique, but there are those who, letting themselves be inspired, have built their photographic work on a chromatic choice and framing at the limits of precision. This is the case of Teresa Freitas, a young Portuguese photographer who, through her shots, shows us common scenes with meticulous attention to the elements that build them, proposing something that perhaps we have already seen but never through this perspective.

Did you know: for the outdoor shots of the hotel Wes used a 3-meter-high scale model, made entirely by hand because if this had been done on the computer, in the director’s idea, it would have appeared to the audience too offset from reality.

London in lockdown, photos of Jan Enkelmann

London in lockdown, photos of Jan Enkelmann

Emanuele D'Angelo · 6 days ago · Photography

When we think of London, we immediately think of a city with chaotic rhythms, frenetic and tireless, like any self-respecting modern capital. Because of the pandemic, however, everything came to a sudden halt almost suddenly.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, following in the footsteps of his illustrious colleagues all over the world, has frozen the entire city until at least June, waiting for the contagion curve to slow down.

The English photographer Jan Enkelmann decided to document the deafening silence of his city, never seen before.
So on 23 March, the night the lockdown was announced, the photographer climbed on his bike to admire deserted London, never seen like this in 20 years of his life. A few weeks later, he took his camera with him and decided to capture the whole thing.

Like many others I felt compelled to document the lack of crowds in usually crowded locations. But looking at the set of images I have made over the last weeks, I feel this project has taken on a life of its own. Maybe these photos are less about the lack of human presence and rather about the stillness of a city being allowed a breather to reveal a beauty that often goes unnoticed.
