Brut Deluxe

The architectural office co-established by Ben Busche of Germany and Isabel Barbas of Portugal is called "Brut Deluxe" - "Brut" referring to an extra dry wine with sugar content of less than 1 percent, and the opposite concept of ¡°Deluxe¡± referring to magnificent and luxuriant beauty. The formative basis of the work by "Brut Deluxe" is the harmonic synthesis of the artistic and sensual Latin focus with the technical and scientific Nordic philosophy.

The city of Madrid, which serves as the locus of activity for the two architects, flows with the fragrance of passion, culture, and the arts and maintains its historical old city panorama even to this day. To the east of Madrid is the Parque Retiro, which was a vast garden-park of the royal palace of the seventeenth century. Situated nearby in the Plaza de la Independencia (Independence Square) is the Puerta de Alcala (Alcala Gate), which was erected by Carlos III as a monumental gate and exhibits the sophistication and grandeur typical of the classic architectural form.

At the intersection of the Paseo de Recoletos and the Gran Via, which flows from the old city district to the Puerta de Alcala, is a brilliant light display for the Christmas season. The display, which was set up by Brut Deluxe, is an effort by the team to share with the people of the city their experiences and memories of winter through lights inspired by the cold weather, snowflakes flying around, and images of Christmas scenery. As this city enters into the season of celebration, a symphony of dazzling lights decorates the sophisticated old-city streets with a brilliant and beautiful display.

While these illumination projects in Madrid helps to light up the winter and Christmas nights, another illuminations by Brut Deluxe in the port city of Malaga in southern Spain decorates the summer nights with a different kind of brilliance. As one of the eight cities of Andalucia that were dominated by Islam in the past, it is easy to find tiles and decorations depicting traditional Islamic patterns in Malaga. The light display set up by Brut Deluxe here actively reflects this regional sentiment of Malaga, and the lights that surround the wide plaza in the Bulevar area also conceptualize the traditional Islamic patterns.

I Memorial

Tragedies have occurred throughout history. Political disturbances as well as natural disasters and epidemics have been the unavoidable fate of human beings. Tragic events have claimed many innocent people and left deep wounds that cannot be healed. To ensure that those sacrifices were not in vain, we have had to ruminate on the past so that those events would not repeat themselves. That is the reason for memorials. But is contemporary memorial design still effective when grief is more subjective than ever before?

Kieran Long, a British architectural critic, in his following essay insists that memorial design is undergoing a crisis, citing in particular Felix Gonzales-Torres' work exhibited at the Art Biennale in Venice last year. His review on five recent memorial projects adds up to his assertion. by YuMi Hyun
