01. Woodbury Dermatology Clinic / archimania

“The Tennessee firm, archimania, have designed an accessible, retail inspired dermatology clinic for their forward-thinking client. Set in a “sea of retail”, the clinic had to be warm and inviting, while still being uniquely modern.” (archdaily)

02. Universiade Sports Center by GMP Architects

“The overall complex is laid out as an extensive landscaped park with typical elements of a traditional Chinese garden. Watercourses and plants symbolize movement and development, while crystalline structures in the form of stones and rocks represent continuity and stability. The dialogue between the fluid landscape shapes and the expressive architecture of the stadia constitutes the conceptual framework of the design. The crystalline shape of the three stadia is additionally emphasized by the illumination of the translucent facades at night.” (contemporist)

03. Trace of Shadow Tableware by Kijtanes Kajornrattanadech (above)

“Recent Central Saint Martins graduate Kijtanes Kajornrattanadech has created a collection of porcelain tableware and metal cutlery with outlines of shadows, in the form of black mats, that are both symbolic and functional.” (moco)

04. The Manual

“Digital design is a precocious discipline, growing up faster than anyone could have imagined and not afraid to mix it with its more established peers. Now Andy McMillan of Fiction has created The Manual, a new printed publication looking at this ever-growing field of expertise, charting its progress and celebrating its successes. We caught up with Jez Burrows, It’s Nice That contributor and designer of The Manual to find out more.” (itsnicethat)
