Ole Scheeren: A Beijing Essay

Ole Scheeren: A Beijing Essay

To some of us Westerners, particularly the ones who live in little, old Copenhagen, the size, scope and vastness of Beijing, let alone China, can be hard to get our heads around. To say that the Chinese capital moves at a different architectural pace than most Europeans are used to is, apparently, a grave understatement.

Trans Metro Express 2013

Trans Metro Express 2013

Posted in Ideas by AIAIAI

The concept of Trans Metro Express is to give four electronic acts the opportunity to compose a live set for the Copenhagen Metro, inspired by a video of a specific Metro stretch. The music is subsequently played live in the moving Metro while the Copenhagen massive go Metro mental, as it were. It’s safe to say that the compentent creatives behind The STRØM Festival of Electronic Music go that extra mile to provide the very best in music, movement, and memorable experience. A fact which this year’s Trans Metro Express was, very literally, a moving testament to. AIAIAI tagged along for the ride and filmed the entire thing, which resulted in this very video. Check it out.

Trans Metro Express 2013 Teaser

We hooked up with the good people at the STRØM festival for a little video featuring their Trans Metro Express project, which takes you on a journey of electronic music through Copenhagen.

Copenhagen's New Blue Planet Aquarium

Copenhagen's New Blue Planet Aquarium

Copenhagen just gained a new architectural icon, located on the waterfront just outside the city. From above it has the shape of a whirlpool. From the ground it looks more like a huge whale that washed up on the shore. The intricate and very 'liquid-y' geometry is constructed by casting concrete around a steel skeleton, before covering it with sheets of aluminum, which all have diamond shapes in same dimensions. This has the added benefit of making the totality of the construction look like fish scales. Yes, it's a sight to behold.

On Space Time Foam

On Space Time Foam

Mama used to tell me to keep both feet on the ground. I normally try to, but Tomas Saraceno’s transparent 'bouncy castle' art installation made me feel like walking on air and I had to let go. I felt like a kid playing in this giant adult playground, which behaves like a suspended trampoline crossed with a see-through bouncy surface.
