Visionary Architecture: Chris Bosse on Cloud City

When German architect and LAVA co-founder Chris Bosse was asked to conceive The City of the Future for the CUSP: Designing Into the Next Decade exhibition at the Australian Design Center, it was like letting a racehorse out of the gates. Even before his visionary work on the unforgettable Watercube of Beijing Olympics fame, Bosse had been applying his Frei Otto sensibilities to lightweight, revolutionary, futurist architecture with signature glam and vigor. The City of the Future brings the thinking of several individual projects into a galloping whole: we see in this exhibition the culmination of years of innovative philosophical and developmental research aimed at giving birth to buildings that look pretty and really perform. We caught Bosse on Skype while he was en route from Honk Kong to Sydney, to get his thoughts on the future urban jungle, a place he calls Cloud City.

Minimalist Pine-Clad Dining Room in Sweden

Perched atop a hill between a large park and Gothenburg's former industrial past rests architect Per Bornstein's 1,400 square feet slatty home featured from our Big Ideas for Small Spaces issue. Here, the architect and his daughter Velma sit in the minimalist dining room at a table the architect designed himself with wooden chairs designed by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen. Black wooden cabinets add contrast to the untreated glued-laminated pinewood-clad walls. Unadorned and umembellished, the room's design is elegant and raw. “There’s no painting, nothing,” he says. “It’s straight out of the package. I like the idea that everything is what it is. Nothing is enclosed. If it’s a radiator, then it’s a radiator. If it’s a light fitting, then it’s a light fitting. In the end, it makes the house very easy to understand.”
