This week Slickzine brings you a compilation of some of the most matchless examples of the awe-inspiring trend – shadow art. In shadow art, specific items (often household) are put in a special order and a light is shone from a definite angle to produce a shadow. This shadow shows some kind of pattern, text, or photo.

 Shadow Art beyond comparison!

Shadow art is a rather unique style because each illustration undergoes great amounts of difficulty and detail. By looking at the examples of shadow art, one will observe the intelligent and creative use of items otherwise thought to be useless. Some of the best examples available on the web are shown below.

Designed by Yasui Hideo Atelier, Karuizawa Museum is a symbiosis of straight and curved lines. The design concept is from the Japanese art culture of origami in which one is allowed to express his infinite imagination by shaping paper in different forms. This method has been implied to design a facility accompanied to the museum of Hiroshi SENJU, a world-famous Japanese painter/artist. The geometrical shape of the museum gives it both a contemporary and traditional look. The architecture was designed in a manner so that through the windows in between the contrasting lines, one can look at the Yatsugatake or Asamayama mountains.

Located in southwestern France, Bordeaux is home to the famous Garonne River. With a wine economy in the metro area of 14.5 billion Euros per year, Bordeaux is a major wine industry. But what really catches one’s eye is the heart-warming architecture of the metropolitan. This has got to be one of the best holiday destinations.

The Black Pearl; Renovation makes it perfect http://slickzine.com/all/the-black-pearl-renovation-makes-it-perfect/ http://slickzine.com/all/the-black-pearl-renovation-makes-it-perfect/#comments Thu, 19 Jun 2014 11:19:11 +0000 http://slickzine.com/?p=9686 Aview thumb The Black Pearl; Renovation makes it perfect

Zecc Architects present the Black Pearl – a renovated house which has been painted totally black. The black texture gives the house a rather contemporary look. The century old Rotterdam house was converted into an architectural wonder when the closed house’s exterior was painted totally black. The masonry, frames as well as the windows have been covered in thick black oil, giving the house a rather formal look. The old facade is now totally new with new windows that pierce through the dull historical look.

The modern-day house has three floors, each of which has a world of its own. The ground floor contains the spacious 5-meter high studio which has been kept as open as possible. Above the studio is the main residence which is 6-meters high. With its own fine quality, it sure is a wonderful architecture.

Basin thumb The Black Pearl; Renovation makes it perfect

Zecc Architects are a group of Dutch architects who work by the principle of “Grounded Architecture” – meaning architecture with a strong foundation. They work from three ground principles: what they build is functional, sustainable and engages all senses at the same time. Zecc believes that the core of their strength is uniting these three principles which is a seemingly impossible task

The Black Pearl has its own elegance which was achieved by transforming a century-old house into a modern-day wonder.
