This is a building design is the winner of the international invitation competition for the construction of the Automobile Museum in Nanjing, designed by Italy-based architecture studio 3GATTI to explore the relationship between car and museum.
“The building is to be dedicated to the automobile, where the automobile is also the vehicle to visit the space. You visit the first external ramp of the museum with your own private car, like a safari, you park your car on the roof and visit by foot the internal ramp going down.”

Emiliano Godoy recently designed the stunning looking ‘drip table’, which is manufactured by Pirwi + Proteak. The piece is made from many small pieces of FSC certified thinning teak.
‘The idea for the drip table came out of several months of thinking about the manufacturer’s capabilities and looking for a way to express them by showing their virtues. Proteak are converting old farming and grazing grounds, now nutrient depleted and unproductive, into sustainably managed (and FSC certified) teak plantations. When they buy the land, if there’s still some rainforest left they keep it and protect it.’
