DETOUR

Design Festival in Hong Kong
Posted by Gestalten—11/2013

"DETOUR MATTERS: From Microtopias to Social Innovation"—with this year's motto, DETOUR will not only enrich Hong Kong's culture program, but also creatively deploy the city's public transport system.

Gestalten returns to DETOUR again for the second year. To make getting around even easier this time, DETOUR is transforming city trams into moving showcases for design and art linking all the major festival venues—featuring a library of Gestalten books.

The DETOUR Tram will also convert into a classroom for a special lecture to celebrate the launch of Homecoming: Contextualizing, Materializing and Practicing the Rural in China. The book presents work by an emerging generation of Chinese architects that uses unique design and working approaches to resist generic mass construction and foreign iconic building. Enjoy a unique tram ride with editors Christiane Lange, Joshua Bolchover, and John Lin for a chat and get your copy of the book signed on December 1st from 4:30PM to 5:20PM. Take the tram from The Hennesy, Wanchai stop to Shaukiwan Terminus.

Tickets are available on www.detour.hk.

Trachten featured in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Trachten on DB mobil. “Das Buch ist eine Hommage an fast vergessene Traditionen vieler deutscher Regionen. Wie ein Farbrausch, prunkvoll und überwältigend, ziehen die Bilder den Betrachter in den Bann.”

Trachten featured in the April 17 edition of Süddeutsche Zeitung. “Trachten spielen wieder eine Rolle in der Mode: weil sie für Ursprünglichkeit stehen und ein wenig Weltflucht. (Dieser) Bildband feiert die Kleider-Kunstwerke…Eine Augenweide.”

Trachten in the April 19 edition of Welt am Sonntag. “Der Modefotograf Gregor Hohenberg reiste fünf Jahre lang durch Deutschland, um Menschen in Trachten zu porträtieren. Seine Bilder zeigen eine erstaunliche Vielfalt der Formen, Schnitte und Verzierungen – und sie erzählen von hoher Handwerkskunst.”

Imagine Architecture reviewed in the April/May issue of Cubes. "An interdisciplinary bridge for those who wish to seek inspiration beyond their field of architecture, photography or modern art."

The New Nomads featured on Milk Decoration.

Corso interviewed Sven Ehmann about The New Nomads.
