The Edit Vol.IV with a private Art Foundation, De Wain Valentine and more

The internet is full of inspiration. Every day I discover beautiful design and inspiring interiors – “The Edit” is home to a wide variety of projects, from architecture to photography to graphic design.

Let’s start with a beautiful sculpture by De Wain Valentine. Valentine was an American artist known for his sculptures made from translucent materials. His work from the late 1960s and 1970s is characterized by its use of light and color, which Valentine used to create the illusion of shifting surfaces and textures.

On archdaily I found the beautiful photography by Yuri Palmin of a Private Art Foundation designed by MEL Architects on the left side.

Beautiful extension to a house in Bern

In this extension, planned and realized by Althaus Architekten Bern AG, the line between nature and architecture, light and mass, becomes a perceptual experience. Like sculptures, the various concrete elements come to life under the changing light of day.

The new guest wing in the underground only connects with the existing house and garden with the impluvium and the sunken garden courtyard. This creates amazing lighting effects inside the rooms. The building also makes cultural references to the works of different artists, for example the ʺsky-roomsʺ of James Turell, the garden pavilions of Dan Graham, or the reflection spectacles of Julio Le Parc.

This area has something futuristic yet calming about it. I like the choice of light concrete and the organic shapes.
