Heatherwick Studio and Foster + Partners have teamed up to create an arts and cultural centre with a moving façade. Yes, you read that right – we did a double take too.
The façade consists of three layers of bronze tubes (reminiscent of bamboo) that move in different directions to stunning effect; the design intends to capture the drama of traditional Chinese theater.
Next time you just happen to be strolling Shanghai’s waterfront, it’s worth taking a look. In the meantime, you can check out a video on the building here.

Architectural firm LAVA (LAboratory for Visionary Architecture) have designed a revolutionary energy-storing water tank, destined to be the tallest building in the German town of Heidelberg.
The building is loosely based on a giant gas tank that reflected Germany’s energy policy in the 1950’s, and will soon act as a beacon signalling the area’s commitment to wiser and more sustainable energy.
LAVA’s design includes twin elevators to roof top event spaces, and a bistro and terrace offering panoramic views. The tank itself is clad in a multi-layered façade, with around 11,000 diamond-shaped rotating plates of stainless steel – which interact with the wind and represent the number of homes supplied with energy by the network.
BE Collective worked with the LAVA team on a Digital Origami Emergency Shelter as a part of an Emergency Shelter Exhibition which toured Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, take a look at the project here.
