Things we love: Object Future III Exhibition



The design process is often overlooked when you are experiencing and admiring a final product. Yet, as we are well aware here at Modscape, it is the time and effort that goes into the design process that is responsible for creating the end masterpiece.

Object Future III is a new exhibition set to open in December at St Kilda’s Linden New Art Gallery. Focusing on the design process, the exhibition looks at how ideas shape the things that are designed for everyday consumption and asserts the objects in a context for aesthetic and intellectual consumption.  (more…)

SOFTlab’s Nova Pavilion



An crystalline modular pavilion has popped up in New York’s Flatiron Square, offering pedestrians beautiful kaleidoscopic views of the surrounding cityscape.

The sustainable and smart office building

The Edge, designed by PLP Architecture for OVG Real Estate. HQ of Deloitte

This office building, named the Edge, in Amsterdam knows exactly what you want, when you want it. It has been labelled the greenest building in the world – and is possibly the smartest.

When you arrive, you’re connected. The building automatically recognizes your car or bike and directs you to a parking spot.

Then the app finds you a desk. Because in this building, you don’t have one. Workspaces are based on your schedule (which again, the app checks) and your preference of work station. Perhaps you want a sitting desk, a standing desk, a balcony seat or a work booth. By using the app to give employees desks only as needed, the building can not only provide an employee’s desired working environment, but can accommodate more people in a much smaller footprint.  (more…)

50 Amazing Treehouses from Around the World

Treehouses are not just playthings for kids. They can be wild realisations of the union between man-made abodes and plant life in its most archetypal, grounded form – the tree. They can be beautiful pieces of architecture, existing for their own sake as the manifestation of a creator’s mind. They can be reflections of eco-friendly sustainable design at its best. Or, they can be there for kids or adults to climb through, sleep in and admire for both their aesthetic qualities and their functionality.
