Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson aims to emphasize the relativity of reality. In his latest of many ambitious projects, he situates his works in the stunning baroque space of the Viennese Winter Palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy in an aptly titled exhibition, “Baroque Baroque”. The double title emphasizes how the exhibition is a reformulation of a reformulation- a space of altered expectations and aesthetics.

Just outside the Polish capital of Warsaw, Marcin Tomaszewski of local architecture practice Reform has created a dwelling that appears to float amid its woodland setting. Planted between the trees, the ‘Izabelin House’ exterior design heavily features a mirrored facade which clads most of the lower level, giving the illusion that the upper half of the home is floating in mid air above the forest bed.

Formed of two horizontally configured volumes, the home’s lower storey is clad with reflective paneling. Consequently, these mirrored surfaces appear as an extension of the forest floor, with opaque areas stacked above. Large apertures present sweeping views of the property’s surroundings, while the design also comprises an area of sheltered decking at ground level.

The architect’s biggest challenge will be to preserve the existing trees which are currently located on the planned construction site. Furthermore, they will need to figure out a way to prevent birds from flying into the home’s highly reflective exterior surface.

Thom Yorke x Four Tet x Burial: Good songs to end the week on

How bonkers good are these two new songs from Thom Yorke, Burial, and Four Tet, the super group of the week? Well, we think they are bonkers good. You got “Ego” on the A-Side, “Mirror” on the super AA-Side, out on 12″ on Text Records. Massively good.
