OGILVY in Mexico City / by Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos

The new offices, of one of the most awarded advertisement agencies in the world, resemble a gear in perfect synchrony. Circular, square and rectangle geometries give shape to the layout and the different areas are interconnected according to the necessary space that has to be between each other to make the collaborative processes more efficient, just like the neuronal relationship of this creative brain with the most spectacular clients — brands and advertisers— with worldwide presence.

Open work stations displayed in a circular shape with a kernel for meetings or immediate encounters of “creative kick about”. Glass boxes meeting rooms or telephone booths and a glass amphitheater for campaign presentations, are part of the spaces that solve the interior needs for the new offices at their headquarters in Mexico City.

In addition to animate forms we have manipulated the movement in order to induce the production of new urban opportunities.

Our proposal links together the two main areas of Prevention-Education and After-effect response-rescue (the shelter). In the Prevention-Education area the visitors first shall watch, observe, scrutinize the phenomena in the Planetarium, 4D Video room and the Exhibition area grouped around the Lobby and then personally participate, experience, test the phenomena in the Simulation wing of the building.

BROOKLYN NIGHT BAZAAR 2011 / by JDS

Quoted from Brooklyn Night Bazaar press release:

Founder and Brooklynite Aaron Broudo was inspired by the Southeast Asian night markets — where a manic energy infuses with music as locals and tourists sample dishes and bargain for objects. Brooklyn’s version is a mega-pop-up platform that commingles indie music, handmade zines, homegrown jams, projected art videos and giant helium balloons.
