5 “ ASTRA TOWER, HAMBURG, GERMANY THE SHINE FROM WITHIN” Interview by Guido Diesing The design of the Astra Tower in the port of Hamburg was a stroke of luck for Tobias Grau. As a lighting designer, interior designer and furniture designer, he was able to develop a uniform form language for the office building. If you ask anyone from anywhere in the world what they think of first when they hear the word Hamburg, they’ll immediately say the port and the Reeperbahn. If you want to stand out in this neighbourhood you have to have something to offer. Like the Astra Tower. Located right on the...

It is this transparency that is the secret of the nocturnal shine. “The corridor area around the building core is illuminated by a light band made of pendant fluorescent tubes that shine a neutral white light upwards and downwards from the middle and also light up the white laminated panelling.” In order to create a uniform impression, Grau also fitted the standard and table lamps in the office areas with neutral white fluorescent lamps. “Since there is no colour difference with the ambient lighting, the desired effect of making the core of the tower visible from outside like a white column...

8 DIALOGUE Stefano Goldberg RENZO PIANO Architect, RPBW, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Genoa, Italy Interview by Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi “The more I reduce the material, the closer I get to nature, and enter into a relationship with light and the wind” As far as Renzo Piano is concerned, a successful architect must be at the same time a good engineer, a good sociologist, a good economist and a good geographer. But if he wants to go further than this and create poetry, he needs to know how to work with wind and light. Why did you decide to become an architect? It was the natural thing to...

Were you surprised about that? There were many competitors, and it was a prestigious job. We were young – I was 33 and Richard was 36 – and we had little experience. The Jury consisted of Jean Prouvé, Oscar Niemeyer and Philip Johnson, who admired the innovative nature of our proposal. This was a time when people were receptive to innovation. What does sustainability in architecture mean to you? I like to associate the word sustainability with elevation. The more I remove whatever is excessive, the more I economise in materials. The more I reduce the material, the closer I get to nature,...

Sergio Gomez ORQUIDEORAMA, THE BOTANICAL GARDEN OF MEDELLÍN, COLOMBIA An astonishing forest of trees in the shape of flowers has sprung up in Medellin, “the city of eternal springtime”.

12 FOOTER AL ZAHRA HOSPITAL SHARJAH, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES Medical procedures like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can often frighten people, especially children, who feel uneasy in a medical setting and are anxious about the outcome.

ANANDPUR SAHIB, BLISS, INDIA Gurdwara is the sacred place of worship for the Sikhs. The architecture features some elements borrowed from the Mughal architecture and the Rajput palaces and forts, but also includes some original concepts reflecting the principles of the religion and features a combination of square, rectangular, octagonal and cruciform shapes. There is a ‘gumbad’ (dome) on the top of the sanctum, which is usually fluted or ribbed and white in colour. The top is decorated with an inverted lotus-shaped structure and the base also reflects a floral theme. The objective of the...
