Another Architecture Mark magazine is a platform for the practice and perception of architecture at the dawn of the third millennium. Since its launch in 2005, the magazine has proven to be a timely, visual, non-academic publication full of first-hand information from creative people. Mark has a radically international perspective, shining its spotlight on starchitects and new talent alike. The magazine explores the boundaries of architecture and anticipates the industry's future.
The new concert hall in Szczecin by Barozzi Veiga echoes both Hanseatic architecture and projects by German expressionists.

‘The comment thread is an ecosystem of its own’
The Guardian’s Oliver Wainwright talks about architecture criticism in the 21st century.
A couple of things struck me on meeting Oliver Wainwright. The first is that he’s irritatingly young: The Guardian architecture and design critic has just made it into his 30s and, as a result, can pull off that beard and scraped-back long hair look convincingly. And the second is that he’s fantastically late for our 6 p.m. meeting in a Shoreditch-based coffeehouse around the corner from his office. However, his excuse is properly juicy: he’s been leaked a letter suggesting that Boris Johnson – London mayor and, if you believe the hype, Britain’s primeminister-in-waiting – has been less
than honest about how the city’s proposed Garden Bridge will be funded. While Johnson has gone on record denying that any further taxpayers’ money will be used to subsidize the Heatherwick Studio-designed scheme, the letter implies that the public will be liable for the bridge’s annual £3.5-million maintenance bill in perpetuity. Wainwright had to get the piece out before our meeting and receives a couple of calls about while we’re talking. An 1,800-word story is duly published later that night, and people are already talking about it when I arrive in my office the next morning. Oliver Wainwright

Balcony windows Fakro Fakro’s Galeria balcony windows make it possible to create a balcony in an attic space. In sloped roofs without a knee wall, you can glaze the entire roof with large balcony windows that provide ample natural light and a panoramic view. The FGH-V Galeria is an innovative window that creates a balcony when the sashes are opened. The upper sash opens upward and has an innovative mechanism that allows it to be left in any position, while the lower sash can be tilted forward. When the lower sash is closed, the balcony rails are hidden inside the window and are not visible above the roof surface, do not collect dirt or spoil the aesthetics of the roof.

Aluminium frames Allaert Aluminium Since 1955, Valentin Allaert has produced aluminium constructions. Before that, he made windows, doors and hardware in steel, copper and bronze. In 1980, Serge Allaert succeeded his father. Serge’s son Thomas joined him recently. He’s the seventh consecutive generation in the building and construction sector. This villa in Harelbeke, Belgium, was designed by Francisca Hautekeete Architectuur. The architect used a combination of Reynaers and Otiima profiles. The Alinel wall cladding is also an accomplishment by Allaert Aluminium. allaertaluminium.be
Window systems Aluprof Aluprof’s MB-FERROLINE window system is the perfect solution to renovating monumental buildings. The correct appearance of the windows is preserved by imitating the steel joinery, while exceptionally good technical design parameters are insured at the same time. Various types of inward opening, outward opening and fixed windows can be constructed that, in addition to their perfect thermal insulation, are characterized by their very good sound insulation, wind and water resistance and high durability. aluprof.eu
Sectional doors Breda Italian manufacturer Breda, which produces sectional doors for residential and industrial use, has created the Multi Rib. The design is the result of a multiple combination of many small waves. The optical effect on the panels is very original with a flat coat. Multi Rib is available in the colours White C21, Grey RAL 9006, Grey RAL 7016, Brown C17, Green RAL 6005 and Green RAL 6009, for the most popular and appreciated Breda models. Another innovation by Breda is Micacea, paint that combines acrylic resins with micaceous iron pigments. The result is a refined metallic effect – available in Black Smoke, Green Pine, Old Red, Red Scorched Earth, Silver Grey, Metallic or Graphite – that reproduces an antique wrought iron effect. bredasys.com

“A synthesis of arts”: Le Corbusier’s colours and classic switches.
The minimalist forms of Le Corbusier‘s buildings, furniture and studies, as well as his exceptional “Polychromie architecturale”, continue to influence the world of architecture. In appreciation of Le Corbusier‘s works and inspired by his colours, JUNG is offering a reinterpretation of its classic LS 990 range of switches in the 63 shades of Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier as a worldwide exclusive. Forty years after the launch of the LS 990 series, a classic is now showing its colours.
A concrete skin to withstand the harshest conditions
Just because a building is small, it’s not necessarily easier to design or to construct than one many times larger. That’s doubly true when the tiny structure in question perches on a mountain, like the Alpine shelter built by OFIS Architects, students from Harvard Graduate School of Design, and Austrian concrete company Rieder. An inaccessible location, coupled with the hostile climate, multiplied the challenges involved in the project and called for some radical solutions. The shelter replaces a 50-year-old structure made from iron sheet that stood in the same location: some 2,118 m up on the face of Mount Skuta in the Kamnik–Savinja Alps in Slovenia. The new version started life in an architectural-design studio at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, led by Rok Oman and Spela Videcnik of Slovenian studio OFIS Architects. Several student groups working on the challenge produced 12 proposals that met site
conditions, material requirements and programmatic considerations. Of these, the design by Frederick Kim, Katie MacDonald and Erin Pellegrino was selected for further development with OFIS. Inspired by traditional Alpine architecture, the shelter, which provides basic accommodation for eight climbers, is divided into three sections, each with its own pitched roof. Glazed gables allow for spectacular, vertigo-inducing views. The outer shell, in Rieder’s silvery grey, glassfibre-reinforced öko skin concrete panels, harmonizes with the rugged landscape in colour and texture while wrapping the building in a highly weather-resistant, protective skin. Although only 13 mm thick, and thus relatively lightweight and easy to transport, öko skin offers excellent protection from the elements while needing little to no maintenance for a period of up to 50 years. It is the result of 55 years of experience and experimentation in concrete
materials by the company, which has developed a special competence centre for façade claddings. Rieder’s involvement with the project began with an invitation to company owner Wolfgang Rieder from the dean of Harvard University to attend the GSD Talks in Cambridge, MA, to talk about innovations and cross-disciplinary changes in architecture. ‘The exchange of ideas with talented young people is vital,’ says Wolfgang Rieder. ‘We can learn a lot from them.’ He emphasizes that Rieder is not only a product supplier, but also a provider of solutions, offering comprehensive services in the areas of substructure, mounting and logistics. ‘It has always been our quest,’ he says, ‘to tackle the problems faced by the world of architecture and to find solutions together with architects and planners.’ The Alpine shelter is no exception to this approach. In addition to the façade, Rieder
sponsored the substructure and helped the students develop the modular design. Rieder’s support allowed the hut to be manufactured off-site and then airlifted in three sections to the mountain face by helicopter, courtesy of the Slovenian army and the local mountain rescue team. Transport and on-site construction took only one day – time being of the essence in such an inhospitable location. ‘It was wonderful to see this building, designed at Harvard, come to life in the Slovenian mountains,’ says Wolfgang Rieder. ‘The whole project contributes to our aim to build a global network of academics, researchers, designers and architects to develop a better world. Merely adding a new colour or a new surface to our product range is not enough. Through our network, we are developing some really innovative ideas, and we hope to bring them to the market soon.’ rieder.cc
