Under the initiatives of Hong Kong Development Bureau to facilitate the conversion of industrial buildings, the project “Genesis” aims to revitalize abandoned industrial building into a contemporary vertical artist village at Hong Kong Island South. Genesis is now undergoing extensive design and renovation to revitalize the site into offices. With the purpose of rejuvenating the premises with modern energy and fitting it with a contemporary design, this old building is once again fulfilling the needs of modern life. Consisting of 22 floors, Genesis is anticipated to be completed in 2014, making a new chapter of adaptive re-use in architecture in Hong Kong.

Elements of “Italian style” and “Ferrari” have been blended into the building. The unique Ferrari yellow of the skin architecture and the twists on the elevation are reminiscent of the outstanding speed of the Italian sports car Ferrari. The identical Ferrari yellow also makes the newly furnished architecture prominent and which adds vitality to the surrounding area.

The introduction of the Vertical Twisted Architectural Fins is an attempt to “Dismantle” and to “Disorder” the monotonous elevation treatment of the original skin, whilst the Twists are the orthodox response to the Ascending Flyover right in the front of the site. The Vertical Twisted Architectural Fins also perform as the Vertical Lighting Devices for the architecture.

Such “Verticality” reveals the Vertical Forces of the Ancient Gothic Church, but in a much more Contemporary Manipulations.

The concept of the current lobby and 4th floor club house-recreation area of the building includes the elements of the 70’s design, the era when the building was initially built. Joining hands with Italian interior designer Stefano Tordiglione, the building incorporates Italian and Hong Kong 70’s design elements, transforming the old into new, blending the East with West. It will be the new cultural identity of Island South of Hong Kong, a landmark of its own personality.

Interior Designer (G/F Lobby and 4/F club house-recreation area): Stefano Tordiglione Design Limited

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
