Guggenheim Helsinki

Feedback update: the winning design in the significantly-hyped Guggenheim Helsinki competition was among the most commented stories on Dezeen this week. Read on for more on this, plus other lively remarks threads.

Finnish line: little identified French-Japanese company Moreau Kusunoki was named as the designer of the new Guggenheim outpost in Helsinki, but several readers weren’t taken with the black-clad layout.

“A black building on that scale in a city with little light in winter,” wrote Derek_V. “‘Very respectful to the internet site certainly.”

Some commenters had been concerned about no matter whether the layout met the guidelines of the competition. “Guidelines are for these who do not otherwise know how to layout,” retorted Finlandese. “There could have been better ones in the 1700+ entries, but Moreau Kusunoki’s prepare was way greater than the other finalists.”

“It really is refreshing, and provides me hope to see that the winner is NOT Hadid or Ghery again,” agreed normal Dezeen commenter Concerned Citizen. Read through the comments on this story »

Alessandro Mendini

Eenie-meenie-Mendini: Hackles were raised soon after Italian designer, theorist and editor Alessandro Mendini advised Dezeen that there are “no much more ideologies” in design.

“He is not seeking hard ample, and probably does not know how to see them,” wrote Beatrice. “Expecting for established media to represent the shock of the new? That is a failure on his element.”

“I think we are in an era of explosion of that means,” added Warren. “We are exploring new prospects and a number of ideologies at as soon as.”

TFO provided another concept: “Real radical alter comes with a crisis, the final, most substantive a single getting industrialisation.

“This will kill the trees! Please end visually contaminating nature,” wrote Guisforyou.

Peter was a bit much more eloquent: “Did the designers determine the strain on the cambium layer and talk to a biologist to see if it would harm or kill the tree?” he wrote. “That looks like a great deal of pressure to me.”

“Funny a single would really feel undesirable for the tree that carries it, not for the one particular that was chopped down to carve the methods,” retorted Rem. “I believe neither cares.” Read through the feedback on this story »

Dita von Teese dress by Francis Bitonti

Printer jam: Francis Bitonti, the designer behind the printed dress for Dita von Teese, informed Dezeen that 3D printing had stagnated thanks to a combination of toy-like machines, over-priced materials and legal wrangles. Many readers agreed.

“The root difficulty is that folks do not recognize what it will take to take a digital layout, move that to physical and then scale,” wrote Nate Evans.

“This technological innovation is as well critical to drop,” additional Peter W. “Firms need to have to recognize it’s not all about promoting toys to the masses – we require Resources for the masses.” Go through the comments on this story »
