Bivacco Brédy

Bivacco Bredy is the winning proposal from an invited competition organized by YACademy and Cantieri d’Alta Quota on behalf of the Brédy family.

Homeland Memorial

Fabijanić formed an integral city square from the southern front of the Main Railway Station to the Vukovar Avenue, doing away with the traces of periphery and remains of the industrial zone, envisaging a railroad under the ground there as well. The central portion of this ample square is intended for the memorial – a composition of several elements lined up from the north to the south: The Wall of Light, at a certain distance the Altar-Mensa and the Portal-Pavilion, which together constitute a place of official, protocol-regulated reverence. Laterally stretches a dense green wall of yew trees and serene lawns. The green wall does not partition but stress, the square is overseeable and open. The Wall of Light is inspired by the authe...

Taoudenni's Memorial

An army of camels was raised and conducted through deserted lands, strong sandy winds under the most extreme temperatures on the planet, to trade gold for salt, the whole journey lasted 2 months on average.

The Violins’ Forest

Beim FuoriSalone 2019 war L&L Luce&Light als technischer Sponsor der Kunstinstallation „Der Geigenwald” vertreten.

For Our Country

For Our Country, is the inaugural National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander War Memorial, commissioned by the Australian War memorial (AWM) and located on Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country.   The work provides a space from which to contemplate and commemorate Indigenous connection to country and the sacrifice that Indigenous serving men and woman have made in the protection of their country.

This reflection is seen to exist on the other side of this veil, establishing an empathetic othering whereby a viewer can wit... Mehr

Scoville Memorial Library

Dieses Projekt befasst sich mit der größeren Frage der amerikanischen Haltung gegenüber der Restaurierung historischer Strukturen.  Die Scoville Memorial Library zeichnet sich dadurch aus, dass sie die erste öffentlich finanzierte Bibliothek in den Vereinigten Staaten ist. Die Aufgabe bestand nicht einfach darin, die Uhr zurückzudrehen: Es war ein unerschrockenes Bemühen der Treuhänder, vorwärts zu drängen, um das Alte freizulegen und zu feiern und gleichzeitig dem neuen Werk unserer eigenen Ära Gewicht zu verleihen.   Einschnitt und Einfügung: Über einer abgehängten Decke fand das Bristow Proffitt Studio ein prächtiges Tonnengewölbe, an dem ein tanzende...

Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center

The design for the new Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center, The View North, expresses the importance of traveling northward to escape the circumstances of slavery through an integrated site, building, and exhibit design. GWWO’s design has created a comprehensive visitor experience that begins the moment visitors enter the site from MD 335, continues through the visitor center, and culminates as they tour the memorial garden. Conceived as a series of abstracted forms that can be interpreted in many ways—from the farmstead vernacular of the region to stations along the Underground Railroad—the new Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center immerses visitors in the story of Tubman’s life.
