Architects Bjarke Ingels and Simon Frommenwiler have teamed up to create this puzzle house, a brightly hued house that can be taken apart and rebuilt, for 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen.

Puzzle House is situated in the back garden of Copenhagen’s Swiss embassy, a regular participating venue in 3 Days of Design and organisers of Architecture in Residence – a programme that aims to strengthen connections between Danish and Swiss architects.

The installation was designed by Ingels, founder of Danish firm BIG, and Frommenwiler, head of Basel-based practice HHF, to foster social interaction.

The structure comprises pink, red and fuchsia coloured geometric blocks that, when slotted together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, form a small gabled house.

Each block is weighted so that they require more than one person to carry them, which the architects hope will encourage visitors to talk and work collaboratively to assemble the building.

Small groups can climb up and sit on the blocks when they are kept separate, or they can be aligned to create amphitheatre-style seating for large-scale events and talks.

A “See you later” and some personal thoughts

The end of last year brought me a “special” present. One morning I woke up and half of my body was having a life on its own.

Now, almost half a year later I can say that I am back to ‘normal‘ life, although I have to admit that I will never be able to play handball at a professional level (says me, the person that never got to go to the gym);).

2019, forty years later. These days, you can follow Holocaust at “real time” because a new project is born: @eva.stories tell us about Holocaust at Instagram.

This is the Holocaust told to the social media generation.

This is why I went into “shock” when I came accross this beautiful fashion kids wear campaign: FIRE HYDRANT, swimwear collection ZARA KIDS SS19.
