Thames & Hudson has just published Total Office Design – 50 Contemporary Workplaces, a 320 pages book edited by Kerstin Zumstein and Helen Parton featuring fifty office projects from around the world.
To the bastard store by studiometrico the editors dedicated four pages with pictures by Giuliano Berarducci.
The book is now available at the bastard store – as usual – and costs € 30,00.
The book italiArchitettura (UTET edizioni) is part of a serie dedicated to italian architecture studios. This fourth volume deals with interiors and consists of more than threehundred pages, fourteen dedicated to the bastard store project of studiometrico.
Until now I think this is the best documentation ever published, with technical drawings and high quality details of the construction of the bastard bowl.
[…] questa quarta uscita di italiArchitettura è dedicata agli interni, che rappresentano un capitolo consistente, forse uno dei più importanti, della produzione architettonica nazionale. In un Paese dove si costruisce poco e si ristruttura molto è infatti inevitabile che parte delle migliori energie progettuali si riversino nel recupero di spazi già realizzati.
– Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi

Watch out english readers as the book is written in italian only!

The video show the construction of this smart wooden box - a.k.a. the secret keyless wooden compartment – that my arch friends created: The UnaBox.
It’s getting popular in US and some schools proposed this as a project for students.
The project was originally published on MAKE n.20, here you have all the drawings to start building your own:
Yesterday the Massimo De Carlo Gallery presented ‘Karma’, the first solo show of the American artist Dan Colen. The installation Oh Shit – for the construction of which Colen has asked advise to the experienced team Karbaum / Atelier LC / studiometrico – is already rising discussion inside and outside Lambrate, the Milanese area where contemporary art and skateboarding sometimes bump into each others…
During 2009 ArchDaily turned into the most visited architecture website and this doesn’t surprise us at all, having seen the amount of contacts that their post published in May brought to the bastard store. ArchDaily chose to celebrate its successes of the last year with the Building Of The Year 2009 award, voted from the readers.
Now the bastard store has made it into the finals by entering the Top 5 of the interiors section… and it’s huge considering the large number of projects in nomination, but we still need the final touch by all supporters provided with Facebook or Twitter.
