03 EDITORIAL   XAL   ANDREAS HIERZER, CEO LYON VISIT US AT LA HALLE TONY GARNIER ARCHITECT@WORK, 20. – 21.09.2012 SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS E   The basic principle of sustainability is really very easy to understand: a careful and considered utilisation of resources minimises the burden on natural systems and preserves their regenerative capacities – which of course ensures that nature can sustain us over the long term too. But there is a big difference between theoretical understanding and practical implementation, as we have recently seen clearly from our still wasteful consumption of energy. Yet,...

What is rare, however, is to find such sophisticated concepts blending ecclesiastical ambience with a party culture. Although the Antwerp architects at Puresang gave the Anglican church in...

07 REMIX INTERNATIONAL XAL BRUSSELS SQUARE BRUSSELS DESIGN SEPTEMBER SQUARE BRUSSELS E There is a thing about conference centres: some were built in an age when the word ’event’ was only known from hearsay and these were austere buildings for austere events. Others are exactly the opposite: pompous event temples. You really want to spend as little time as possible in either one of them. It’s different at “Square Brussels”: this meeting centre in the heart of Brussels combines functionality with top-flight architecture. Built for the 1958 Expo “Palais des Congrès”, lovingly renovated, true to the...

08 RETAIL/NEWS RETAIL RETAIL/NEWS D JEWELLERY PAMPLONA (ESP) by Antonio Vaillo & Juan Luis Irigaray www.vailloirigaray.com MYSTERIOUS WAYS The first impression of this jewelry business in Pamplona in northern Spain is mysterious at the least, even a bit strange. The local architects Antonio Vaillo and Juan Luis Irigaray managed to create a singular universe around the magic of jewelry as an individual, highly unique message by focusing on the stark contrast between bleakness and artistic exuberance in the objects on display. The architects sought to lend expression to the true value of giving...

The idea of location is again conceptualised in the store in a “PUMArised version” of the call box that serves as a presentation space and freight lift. The dressing rooms also have local colour: they were designed as a PUMA Tube Station with the famous London...
