Play it again: let’s build with Lego

Manofactory likes to join positive and creative initiatives. The non-profit Italian association Architects Without Borders is now working on the project of a primary school in the village of Mbakadou,  Senegal.  To co-finance the project they promote an activity called ”Play it again”: on July at Spazio Casa Teatro groups of architects will build architecture with Lego that will be sold in a market exhibition. We took part in the activity and here is the result!

Stockholm Transport Museum – We are designing new premises!

Together with design offices Nyström Persia and Bofink we have created a community called NOOTO.
NOOTO won the contract last spring to sketch out new premises for Stockholm Transport Museum that in future will move from its current location. We have now presented the proposal to our client the Ministry of Transport. We are now waiting for political decisions for the project to be developed further.

Manofactory represented at the Architecture Biennale in Venice

Manofactory’s project “bathing pier in Gothenburg” is now exposed at the world’s largest architecture exhibition, Architecture Biennale in Venice. The project is displayed along with other selected projects from Sweden, Norway and Finland. The aim is to show architecture that responds to certain basic human and social needs; our contribution represents “Recognition” – to be seen and be able to interact with our environment. The pier reflects in a good way this concept because it is a large and important meeting place for recreation and human contacts during the summer months at sea.
