davidclovers has designed a series of projects that tie together the common areas along the podium of the four towers at The Repulse Bay. The project includes the Outdoor Pool and Changing Rooms, Children’s Play Area, Entry Lobbies and Car park Lobbies. It builds upon the growing trend in Asian developments to produce spaces that are part recreation, part social condenser, and part infrastructure. The project seeks to diversify these otherwise separated spaces while at the same time unifying their sensibilities.
HONG KONG — Golden Connection, two light sculpture installations by Peruvian artist Grimanesa Amorós, was featured at BAZAAR ART NIGHT on May 23rd, 2013 at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Daniel REIST & Valcu HORATIU: The project “Peak ‘Eye'” was awarded 2nd prize at the Think Space Unconference 2012 in Zagreb, Croatia. Adrian Lahoud operated as guest curator, and he decided to create a special cycle of competitions.
This cycle of competitions aimed to hold a mirror to the architecture discipline to reflect the changes of the last 30 years by revisiting three competitions that radically transformed architectural culture: “The Peak” (1982), “Yokohama Port Terminal” (1994) and “Blur Building” (1999).

team CLS: Within an ethereal rehabilitating tower, shades of society gather forming communities of hope. Occupants are treated with supported clean peaceful living. The tower, vertically zoned, focuses on healing the BODY (lower), MIND (mid-section) and SPIRIT (high).
Truly sustainable cities should focus on the economy of resources but also the health of the people.
Diminished portions of the community briefly “escape” pressured living to rehabilitate within the tower and ultimately release back into society. Sufferers are included in sympathetic micro-communities living in specialized environments whilst contributing to society.
