This Kaufhaus Canal Hamburg is design by Topotek 1, located in Hamburg, Germany
Bjarke Ingels, BIG Partner-in-Charge "Our Kaufhauskanal vision proposes a neighbourhood where you can have both – both city and nature, both open and urban, both history and future, both identity and diversity, both work and play."
The warped framework creates a layout that is varied and unique without impacting movement through its open space. The resulting urban experience fluctuates between variation and continuity.
The combined efforts of German architects TOPOTEK 1 and Danish architects BIG have won the practises 1st prize in the IBA Hamburg building exhibition competition to design a metropolis of the future.

This BAE Systems Reception is designed by Capita Architecture, located in Lancashire, United Kingdom.
Two major new four-storey office buildings, which have achieved a minimum BREEAM rating of 'Very Good', (the UK sustainability standard) have also opened at the site. The buildings will accommodate flexible engineering accommodation – one will house F-35 staff while the other will house customer support for BAE's Saudi Contracts.
The offices feature a raft of sustainable features including low energy consumption, biomass boilers, rainwater harvesting and a central atrium providing both a wealth of natural daylight and air circulation. As part of the green travel plan, showering and changing facilities have also been provided within the office buildings to encourage staff to cycle into work and help cut down the company's carbon footprint.
Featuring a design inspired by the dynamic form of a Fighter Jet, the new reception building at BAE Systems' manufacturing and aerospace facilityat Samlesbury in Lancashire has officially opened.
