Annvil founder Anna Bates and architect Gary Bates has launched Make Make, New York based spatial design practise. Make Make is to emphasize, to exaggerate the process of making itself. Making opposed to designing. Making that takes in consideration the many implications of urbanity, community building, reusability, economics, and risk taking. Making real and really making it.
Zuzeum Studio, space at Zuzeum, a Multifunctional Art Center, housing the exhibition office and an apartment for creators-in-residence. The two-level-high studio also serves as a gallery showcasing highlights and recent acquisitions from the Zuzans Collection. The studio was created within the existing structure of the art centre in order to make effective use of the old factory building that has been used for cultural activities since the 1990s.
Over the course of the 20th century, many of Riga’s industrial buildings have lost their original functions. This has left an abundance of empty historic buildings ripe for adaptation; an approach which is increasingly contributing to the Latvian capital’s reputation as a cultural centre, as creatives and entrepreneurs find new ways to repurpose the city’s existing assets.
For the first time in history, 111 driving forces in architecture from 29 countries united into a unique collaborative experimental project by creating a magnificent collection of artworks. Each contribution is inspired by the previous work.
