  • [2] Vesteda tower
    08/08/18 18:31 The Vesteda tower is located in Eindhoven and was finished in 2006. This tower refers back to the Flatiron building (in Manhattan, New York City) of 1902 with its distinct shape. One of the main differences being the diamond shape of the former, whereas the latter is more like a triangle. At 90 meters tall it is the fourth tallest building in Eindhoven. 23 Of its 27 floors above ground (thus 28 floors for the total) are occupied by two luxury apartments per floor, the top floor being home to a penthouse. The third floor is home to a health club and a guest house and the bottom floors are the main entrance and Vesteda gallery.

  • [3] Evoluon
    14/08/18 18:31 Evoluon The Evoluon is a conference centre and former science museum erected by the electronics and electrical company Philips in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 1966. Since its construction, it has become a landmark and a symbol for the city. The building is unique due to its very futuristic design, resembling a landed flying saucer. It was designed by architect Louis Christiaan Kalff, while the exhibition was conceived by James Gardner. The building was based on an idea by Frits Philips, who originally made a sketch of the building on a paper napkin. Frits Philips wanted to give the people of Eindhoven a beautiful and educational gift to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the company that bears his family name. Its concrete dome is 77 meters (253 ft) in diameter and is held in place by 169 kilometers (105 mi) of rebar. In the 1960s and 70s it attracted large visitor numbers, since its interactive exhibitions were a new and unique concept in the Netherlands at that time. But when competing science museums opened in other cities, the number of visitors to the Evoluon declined every year. After several years of losing money, the original museum closed down in 1989 and the Evoluon was converted into a conference center, opening in 1998. The Evoluon is chiefly remembered in the UK from Bert Haanstra's wordless short film, titled simply Evoluon. Commissioned by Philips to publicise the museum, it was shown as a trade test colour film on the BBC from 1968 to 1972. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

  • [4] La tour d'Eben-Ezer
    02/08/18 18:31 A Belgian self-built tower inspired by the bible and ancient civilizations. Eben-Ezer Tower is a tower-museum built by Robert Garcet to Eben-Emael (common Bassenge ), north of Liège. Its proportions are based on those of the New Jerusalem , according to John. According to its architect, Robert Garcet , each stone has a revelation and the figures speak for themselves. The building, 33 meters high on a square plan with turret corners, is constructed of large stones of flint on a deep well of 33 meters also. One of the leading manufacturer is Krawinckel Gilbert. Its seven floors are crowned by the four cherubim of the Apocalypse, scupted in stone: Taurus, northwest, man, south-west, Leo, southeast, and the Eagle, the northeast. At the base of the tower, a stone circle draws her twelve pillars between the bushes, each standing stone is distant from each other by 3.33 meters. As for the monumental staircase that runs down the hillside, he, too, the dimensions required by an ancient esoteric . In the Bible, Eben-Ezer is the Stone of help, the memorial stone set up by Samuel after a defeat of the Philistines, as a memorial of the aid received in connection with God (1 Sat 7:7 - 12), near Mizpah (Benjamin), near the western entrance to the pass of Beth-horon. The Tower of Eben-Ezer is a self-built castle constructed in the 1960s by a single man in the isolated Jeker valley of Belgium. The builder, Robert Garcet, was fascinated with the Bible, numerology and ancient civilizations. The entire seven-level tower is built of flint, and according to Garcet, was designed using ancient mystical measurements. On the top of the tower are four giant biblical animals, and the interior is full of Garcet's biblical, archaeological, paleontological and geological art. Even more curious is that although the tower only looks ancient, it sits on top of a vast network of truly ancient tunnels. Garcet claims to have discovered over a hundred "new" fossilized creatures and a 70-million year-old village in the labyrinth of tunnels under the tower! Unfortunately, the village was destroyed by a mining explosion before it could be studied. A new educational space called the Geospadium takes the visitor on a tour of the history and use of the flint stone. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and Atlas Oscura.

  • [5] JF Kennedylaan
    07/08/18 18:31 This building is a landmark at the head of the JF Kennedylaan. It is an exciting construction of glass and steel. From the outside, the construction is noticeable because the walls are made of glass from floor to ceiling. The tension is further increased because the upper part of the tower is wider than the lower part. The façade itself consists of a double skin: an outer skin of glass and then 60 inches wide ventilated cavity and finally the inner skin of double glazing. Source: Mimoa

It can be combined with any of the other herbs, though only three herbs of any type can be combined at once.

    19/07/18 18:31 Imperia Impéria was a Belgian automobile manufactured from 1906 until 1948. Products of the Ateliers Piedboeuf of Liège, the first cars were designed by the German Paul Henze. These were fours of 3, 4.9, and 9.9 liters. /.../ Impéria produced a monobloc 12 hp (8.9 kW) in 1909; in 1910 the company merged with Springuel. The factory producing Impéria-Abadals from about 1916; in 1921, it built three ohc 5·6-liter straight-eights. These were quickly replaced by an ephemeral ohc 3-liter 32-valve four which was capable of going 90 mph (140 km/h). This was followed by an 1100 cc side-valve 11/22 hp four designed by Couchard, one of the first cars ever built with a sunroof. Its engine rotated counter-clockwise, and its transmission brake also served as a servo for those on the front wheels. In 1937 a six of 1624 cc appeared; this had been available in three-carburettor Super Sports form from 1930. Over the course of four years Impéria took over three other Belgian car manufacturers: Métallurgique (1927), Excelsior (1929), and Nagant (1931). From 1934 until the company folded it built mainly front-wheel-drive Adlers with Belgian-made coachwork. The company merged with Minerva in 1934, but they split in 1939. After 1948 Impéria assembled Adlers and Standard Vanguards under license. After Standard decided to set up a new factory in Belgium, the factory was left without work and had to close doors in 1957. In 1925, the company hired Louis de Monge as chief research engineer. Some of his work included torsion bar suspension and automatic transmissions. De Monge left in 1937 to join Ettore Bugatti for whom he would design the Bugatti 100P racer plane. In addition to its production in Belgium, Impéria made a number of cars in Great Britain; these were assembled at a factory in Maidenhead. Rooftop test track Around and on top of the factory buildings, there was a test track over 1km long. The track was built in 1928. The test drivers used the roads of the village, a road with a lot of bends. Speeding and high revving engines made the population mad and they were no longer willing to support the factory. The only solution was to build a test track within the factory and using the football field of the local football club. The ring started within the factory, then over the roof which gave a track of about one kilometre. Only Fiat had a similar track. This little test track became an attraction in the region. A little causeway allowed people to climb onto the nearside hill to watch the spectacle of car testing over the factories roofs. And now Now most of the buildings are occupied by a firm of construction, and a few sheds and batiments are so ruined that the roof risks to collapse. There are still two vehicles (under the dust and the building materials), among which one may be an Imperia model. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Location: van Abbemuseum About the project: This work by Xavier de Richemont was the opening act at the launch of GLOW in 2006. Because five years ago only a few people have actually seen it, this year a repetition follows. A performance on the outer walls of the Van Abbe Museum suggests the building is on fire and burns within minutes. The projection is strong and closely matches the shape of the building, so the actual structure of the museum disappears and the fire looks genuine. With this work De Richemont refers to a quote from Pablo Picasso, where he calls for burning down the museums, because creativity is only locked up here. By taking down the proverbial walls, the gap between art and audience can be closed. The accompanying music is inspired by a composition of Claude Débussy. From Glow 2011 website.

    25/07/18 18:31 Burning Van Abbe Museum (Xavier de Richemont ) GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2011 - 6th Edition - 'Illusion and reality' Due to the dedication of CityDynamiek Eindhoven, from November, 5th to 12th, 2011, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Location: van Abbemuseum About the project: This work by Xavier de Richemont was the opening act at the launch of GLOW in 2006. Because five years ago only a few people have actually seen it, this year a repetition follows. A performance on the outer walls of the Van Abbe Museum suggests the building is on fire and burns within minutes. The projection is strong and closely matches the shape of the building, so the actual structure of the museum disappears and the fire looks genuine. With this work De Richemont refers to a quote from Pablo Picasso, where he calls for burning down the museums, because creativity is only locked up here. By taking down the proverbial walls, the gap between art and audience can be closed. The accompanying music is inspired by a composition of Claude Débussy. From Glow 2011 website.

Location: De Effenaar About the project: The pond at the Effenaar is filled with blue fog and populated by fireflies. The insects are hidden in the reeds and communicate through pulses of light. Sometimes the swarm pulsate synchronous, making strong light concentrations. In Fireflies the audience controls the behavior of the fireflies. It is as if the visitors upset the insects so that they fly off a little further and quietly resume their original pulse. With this installation Tamar Frank reinforces the contrast between the clean lines of the Effenaar and surrounding concrete buildings and the flourishing vegetation in the pond. She changes the area around the platform in an artificial natural park, in the midst of the city. This enlargement of the reality reminisces of the eerie, swampy areas that we know from adventure movies and comics. From Glow 2011 website.

Location: TU/e en Kennispoort About the project: On the TU/e campus and surrounding area lighting designer Michel Suk fully lightens different buildings and landscape elements. Large-scale installations slowly change color or reveal patterns which alternately show chaos and order. Because the light programs are linked together, the overall view is impressive. Visitors walk through a landscape of light and color in which vistas and sight lines continuously cause other images. To mark the 120 year anniversary of Philips the concern supports this project of Michel Suk. His work seamlessly connect to the Philips theme of \u2018Livable Cities\u2019. Absolute eye-catcher in this large installation is the building of Kennispoort. This is the scenery for a co-production of Michel Suk and composer Bart van Dongen. Accompanied by a wind instruments ensemble and electronics a choir of 150 to 200 singers performs a new composition by Bart van Dongen. By using projections Michel Suk provides for a powerful visual counterweight. Because Van Dongen and Suk have worked together from the start lighting and sound are integrated beautifully. Both images and music of Beauty of stagnation are based on the Fibonacci number sequence, which describes growth processes in nature. In both media small entities accumulate to large and complex constructions. For example the projection of a line develops into a tree structure or a color into a fine mosaic. The words and sounds of the music composition evolve gradually into extensive rhythms and tunes. From Glow 2011 website.

The first train station of Liège-Guillemins was inaugurated in May 1842, linking the valley to the upper Ans station. In 1843, the first international railway connection was born, linking Liège to Aachen and Cologne. The station was modernized and improved in 1882 and in 1905 for the World Fair in Liège. This station was replaced in 1958 by a modern (for that time) one that was used until June 2009, a few months before the opening of the new Calatrava designed station. New station The new station by the architect Santiago Calatrava was officially opened on September 18, 2009 with a show by Franco Dragone. It has 9 tracks and 5 platforms (three of 450m and two of 350m). All the tracks around the station have been modernized to allow high speed arrival and departure. The new station is made of steel, glass and white concrete. It includes a monumental arch, 200 metres long and 35 metres high. The building costs were € 312 million.

  • [31] Istanbul, Basilica Cistern
    26/07/18 18:31 The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarayı - "Sunken Palace", or Yerebatan Sarnıcı - "Sunken Cistern"), is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Turkey. The cistern, located 500 feet (150 m) southwest of the Hagia Sophia on the historical peninsula of Sarayburnu, was built in the 6th century during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. History The name of this subterranean structure derives from a large public square on the First Hill of Constantinople, the Stoa Basilica, beneath which it was originally constructed. Before being converted to a cistern, a great Basilica stood in its place, built between the 3rd and 4th centuries during the Early Roman Age as a commercial, legal and artistic centre. The basilica was reconstructed by Ilius after a fire in 476. Ancient texts indicated that the basilica contained gardens, surrounded by a colonnade and facing the Church of Hagia Sophia According to ancient historians, Emperor Constantine built a structure that was later rebuilt and enlarged by Emperor Justinian after the Nika riots of 532, which devastated the city. Historical texts claim that 7,000 slaves were involved in the construction of the cistern. The enlarged cistern provided a water filtration system for the Great Palace of Constantinople and other buildings on the First Hill, and continued to provide water to the Topkapı Palace after the Ottoman conquest in 1453 and into modern times. In media The cistern was used as a location for the 1963 James Bond film From Russia with Love. In the film, it is referred to as being constructed by the Emperor Constantine, with no reference to Justinian. Its location is a considerable distance from the Soviet (now Russian) consulate, which is located in Beyoğlu, the "newer" European section of Istanbul, on the other side of the Golden Horn. The finale of the 2009 film The International takes place in a fantasy amalgam of the Old City, depicting the Basilica Cistern as lying beneath the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, which, in the film, is directly adjacent to the Süleymaniye Mosque. In the 2011 video game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the player controlled character, Ezio Auditore, is given the chance to explore a section of this cistern in a memory sequence entitled The Yerebatan Cistern.

  • [34] Istanbul, Topkapi palace - Imperial Council (Defterhāne)
    25/06/18 18:31 Defterhāne This picture shows the third chamber called Defterhāne. Imperial Council The Imperial Council (Dîvân-ı Hümâyûn) building is the chamber in which the ministers of state, council ministers (Dîvân Heyeti), the Imperial Council, consisting of the Grand Vizier (Paşa Kapısı), viziers, and other leading officials of the Ottoman state, held meetings. It is also called Kubbealtı, which means "under the dome", in reference to the dome in the council main hall. It is situated in the northwestern corner of the courtyard next to the Gate of Felicity. The first Council chambers in the palace were built during the reign of Mehmed II, and the present building dates from the period of Süleyman the Magnificent by the chief architect Alseddin. It has since undergone several changes, was much damaged and restored after the Harem fire of 1665, and according to the entrance inscription it was also restored during the periods of Selim III and Mahmud II. From the 18th century onwards, the place began to lose its original importance, as state administration was gradually transferred to the Sublime Porte (Bâb-ı Âli) of the Grand Viziers. The last meeting of the Council in the palace chambers was held on Wednesday, August 30, 1876, when the cabinet (Vükela Heyeti) met to discuss the state of Murat V, who had been indisposed for some time. The council hall has multiple entrances both from inside the palace and from the courtyard. The porch consists of multiple marble and porphyry pillars, with an ornate green and white-coloured wooden ceiling decorated with gold. The floor is covered in marble. The entrances into the hall from outside are in the rococo style, with gilded grills to admit natural light. While the pillars are earlier Ottoman style, the wall paintings and decorations are from the later rococo period. Inside, the Imperial Council building consists of three adjoining main rooms. Two of the three domed chambers of this building open into the porch and the courtyard. The Divanhane, built with a wooden portico at the corner of the Divan Court (Divan Meydani) in the 15th century, was later used as the mosque of the council but was removed in 1916. There are three domed chambers: - The first chamber where the Imperial Council held its deliberations is the Kubbealtı. - The second chamber was occupied by the secretarial staff of the Imperial Divan. - In the adjacent third chamber called Defterhāne (this view) , records were kept by the head clerks. The last room also served as a document archive. On its facade are verse inscriptions, which mention the restoration work carried out in 1792 and 1819, namely under Sultan Selim III and Mahmud II. The rococo decorations on the façade and inside the Imperial Council date from this period. The main chamber Kubbealtı is, however, decorated with Ottoman Kütahya tiles. Three long sofas along the sides were the seats for the officials, with a small hearth in the middle. The small gilded ball that hangs from the ceiling represents the earth. It is placed in front of the sultan's window and symbolizes him dispensing justice to the world, as well as keeping the powers of his viziers in check. In the Imperial Council meetings, the political, administrative and religious affairs of the state and important concerns of the citizens were discussed. The Imperial Council normally met four times a week (Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) after prayer at dawn. The meetings of the Imperial Council were run according to an elaborate and strict protocol. Council members such as the Grand Vizier, viziers, chief military officials of the Muslim Judiciary (Kazaskers) of Rumelia and Anatolia, the Minister of Finance or heads of the Treasury (defterdar), the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Reis-ül-Küttab) and sometimes the Grand Müfti (Sheikh ül-İslam) met here to discuss and decide the affairs of state. Other officials who were allowed were the Nişancilar secretaries of the Imperial Council and keepers of the royal monogram (tuğra) and the officials charged with the duty of writing official memoranda (Tezkereciler), and the clerks recording the resolutions. From the window with the golden grill, the Sultan or the Valide Sultan was able to follow deliberations of the council without being noticed. The window could be reached from the imperial quarters in the adjacent Tower of Justice (Adalet Kulesi). When the sultan rapped on the grill or drew the red curtain, the Council session was terminated, and the viziers were summoned one by one to the Audience Hall (Arz Odası) to present their reports to the sultan. All the statesmen, apart from the Grand Vizier, performed their dawn prayers in the Hagia Sophia and entered the Imperial Gate according to their rank, passing through the Gate of Salutation and into the divan chamber, where they would wait for the arrival of the Grand Vizier. The Grand Vizier performed his prayers at home, and was accompanied to the palace by his own attendants. On his arrival there, he was given a ceremonial welcome, and before proceeding to the imperial divan, he would approach the Gate of Felicity and salute it as if paying his respects to the gate of the sultan's house. He entered the chamber and took his seat directly under the sultan's window and council commenced. Affairs of the state were generally discussed until noon, when the members of the Council dined in the chambers and after which petitions were heard here. All the members of Ottoman society, men and women of all creeds, were granted a hearing. An important ceremony was held to mark the first Imperial Council of each new Grand Vizier, and also to mark his presentation with the Imperial Seal (Mühr-ü Hümayûn). The most important ceremony took place every three months during the handing out of salaries (ulûfe) to the Janissaries. The reception of foreign dignitaries was normally arranged for the same day, creating an occasion to reflect the wealth and might of the state. Ambassadors were then received by the Grand Vizier in the Council chambers, where a banquet was held in their honour.

  • [35] Istanbul, Rüstem Paşa Camii
    23/07/18 18:31 The Rüstem Pasha Mosque (Turkish: ' Rüstempaşa Camii') is an Ottoman mosque located in Hasırcılar Çarşısı (Strawmat Weavers Market) in the Tahtakale neighborhood, of the Eminönü district of Istanbul, Turkey. History The Rüstem Pasha Mosque was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for Grand Vizier Damat Rüstem Pasha (husband of one of the daughters of Suleiman the Magnificent, Princess Mihrimah). Rüstem Pasha died in July 1561 and the mosque was built after his death from around 1561 until 1563. Architecture Exterior The mosque was built on a high terrace over a complex of vaulted shops, whose rents were intended to financially support the mosque complex. Narrow, twisting interior flights of steps in the corners give access to a spacious courtyard. The mosque has a double porch with five domed bays, from which projects a deep and low roof supported by a row of columns. Interior The Rüstem Pasha Mosque is famous for its large quantities of exquisite İznik tiles, set in a very wide variety of beautiful floral and geometric designs, which cover not only the façade of the porch but also the mihrab, minbar, walls, columns and on the façade of the porch outside. These tiles exhibit the early use of a tomato-red color that would become characteristic of İznik pottery. Some of the tiles, particularly those in a large panel under the portico to the left main entrance, are decorated with sage green and dark manganese purple that are characteristic of the earlier 'Damascus ware' coloring scheme. No other mosque in Istanbul makes such a lavish use of these tiles. The plan of the building is basically that of an octagon inscribed in a rectangle. The main dome rests on four semi-domes; not on the axes but in the diagonals of the building. The arches of the dome spring from four octagonal pillars— two on the north, two on the south— and from piers projecting from the east and west walls. To the north and south are galleries supported by pillars and by small marble columns between them.

  • [36] Tannery Schotte, main hall
    26/07/18 18:31 Built during the 1920’s the family owned tannery of Schotte specialized in Chrome tanning to transform hides into leather for shoes and handbags. For its time this was a revolutionary process of tanning leather (albeit a contemporary environmentalists nightmare because the soil is now contaminated with heavy metals) which proved to be considerably faster than the more traditional method of vegetable tanning and rendered the leather more pliable after the treatment. The company went bankrupt in 1997. The building is almost completely demolished at the time of our visit, and soon the site will be remediated to make way for a new project.

    24/06/18 18:31 The story: "The questions came crowding in me: Who was this strange music lover, amateur works of Dragan? And why did he behave so so weird?" In the village of Ardolaz somewhere in the Valais Alps, Sir Melvin Woodworth is in pursuit of a remember, the shadow of his brother Dragan, pianist in the middle of the mountains. He heards one night a melody played on the piano of the decrepit abandoned hotel. An avalanche is going to destroy the village and the population is evacuated. Alone in the abandoned village, he must understand the past to build the future. Source: COSEY, A la recherche de Peter Pan, Editions du Lombard, 1984, "histoires et légendes" The abandoned hotel The Montesano, Arveyes hotel perched on the plateau of Villars, has seen the beautiful world. Built in 1914, the property is responsible for the care of tuberculosis patients, but it soon turns into a hotel. In 1925, he spent 20 to 60 rooms. In the 60s, the hotel became famous for its theme evenings, nights like Brazilian, jazz, African ... the main lounge and bar welcome the stars but also the regional dish. The fate of this hotel goes dark in the late 90s, when it is landing in the hands of the Cantonal Bank of Vaud (BCV). It therefore passes from hand to hand, without finding an owner willing to take the huge renovation that the building needs. Gradually, the squatters invaded the stage. One night a caravan from even smoke in the parking lot. The town, for safety reasons, access is looping. "But we went there as in a mill," says an inhabitant of Villars. Disappears furniture: objects of significant size, requiring the organization. Many people are certain that organized gangs are at work. A bay window is thus carried away, like pieces of flooring. One evening in April 2008, at 3 am, the alarm is raised. The rundown is on fire. It will take just over 12 hours to ensure that the fire is under control. The property is destroyed and the population does not believe in accidents. It was demolished a few months later.

Et pourquoi se comportait-il de façon si bizarre ?» Dans le village de d'Ardolaz au beau milieu des Alpes valaisannes, Sir Melvin Woodworth est à la poursuite d'un souvenir, de l'ombre de son frère Dragan, pianiste échoué au beau milieu des montagnes.

  • [42] John Cockerill's tribute
    28/07/18 18:31 John Cockerill (3 August 1790 – 9 June 1840) was a British born entrepreneur. He was born at Haslingden, Lancashire, England, and was brought by his father William Cockerill to Belgium where he continued the family tradition of building wool processing machinery, and founded an ironworks, and mechanical engineering company John Cockerill & Cie. (English: John Cockerill & Company) Biography John Cockerill was born in Haslingden, Lancashire. At the age of twelve he was brought to Verviers, Belgium by his father William Cockerill who had made a success as a machine builder there; in 1807, aged 17, he and his brother Charles James took the management of a factory in Liege. His father William retired in 1813 leaving the management of his business to his sons. In September 1813 he married Jeanne Frédérique Pastor, the same day her sister Caroline married Charles James Cockerill. After the victory over Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, the Prussian Minister of Finance, Peter Beuth invited the Cockerill brothers to set up a woollens factory in Berlin. In 1814 the brothers bought the former palace of the Prince Bishops of Liege at Seraing, the chateaux became the headquarters, and the ground behind the factory site (founded 1817); it was to become a vertically integrated iron foundry and machine manufacturing factory. William I of the Netherlands was joint owner of the plant. The machine manufacturing plant was added in 1819, and in 1826 (begun 1823) a coke fired blast furnace. By 1840 the plant had sixteen steam engines of total power 900 hp (670 kW) in continual work, and employed 3000 persons. In 1823 his brother Charles James retired,[9] having been bought out by John in 1822. After the Belgian Revolution of 1830 the new Kingdom of Belgium claimed the property of William I, and in 1835 John Cockerill made himself the sole owner of the works. He also was a founder of the Bank de Belgique, in 1835. During John Cockerill's lifetime, the factories produced not only spinning engines and steel, but steam engines (including air-blowers, traction engines, and engines for ships); in 1835 Belgiums first steam locomotive Le Belge was made. He also had interests in collierys and mines, as well as factories producing cloth, linen and paper. In 1838/9 military tensions between Belgium and the Netherlands caused a rush on the banks for hard currency; as a result of the crisis John Cockerill's company became bankrupt. With debts of 26 million francs on assets of 15 million, he travelled to St. Petersburg to make arrangements with Nicholas I of Russia with the hope of raising funds. On his return he contracted typhoid and died in Warsaw on 19 June 1840, leaving no heirs. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • [60] Dohány utcai zsinagóga
    28/07/18 18:31 Dohány Street Synagogue The Dohány Street Synagogue (Hungarian: Dohány utcai zsinagóga/nagy zsinagóga, Hebrew: בית הכנסת הגדול של בודפשט‎ bet hakneset hagadol šel budapešt), also known as The Great Synagogue or Tabakgasse Synagogue, is located in Erzsébetváros, the 7th district of Budapest. It is the largest synagogue in Europe and the fifth largest in the world. It seats 3,000 people and is a centre of Neolog Judaism. The synagogue was built between 1854 and 1859 in the Moorish Revival style, with the decoration based chiefly on Islamic models from North Africa and medieval Spain (the Alhambra). The synagogue's Viennese architect, Ludwig Förster, believed that no distinctively Jewish architecture could be identified, and thus chose "architectural forms that have been used by oriental ethnic groups that are related to the Israelite people, and in particular the Arabs". The interior design is partly by Frigyes Feszl. The Dohány Street Synagogue complex consists of the Great Synagogue, the Heroes' Temple, the graveyard, the Holocaust memorial and the Jewish Museum, which was built on the site on which Theodore Herzl's house of birth once stood. Dohány Street itself, a leafy street in the city center, carries strong Holocaust connotations as it constituted the border of the Budapest Ghetto. History Built in a residential area between 1854-1859 by the Neolog Jewish community of Pest according to the plans of Ludwig Förster, the monumental synagogue has a capacity of 2,964 seats (1,492 for men and 1,472 in the women's galleries) making it the largest in Europe and one of the largest working synagogue in the World, after the Belz Great Synagogue and the Beit Midrash of Ger in Jerusalem, the Breslov Uman Synagogue in Uman, Ukraine, Temple Emanu-el in New York City, and the Yetev Lev D'Satmar synagogue in New York City. The consecration of the synagogue took place on 6 September 1859. The synagogue was bombed by the Hungarian pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party on 3 February 1939. Used as a base for German Radio and also as a stable during World War II, the building suffered some severe damage from aerial raids during the Nazi Occupation but especially during the Siege of Budapest. During the Communist era the damaged structure became again a prayer house for the much-diminished Jewish community. Its restoration started in 1991 and ended in 1998. The restoration was financed by the state and by private donations. Exterior The building is 75 metres (246 ft) long and 27 metres (89 ft) wide. The style of the Dohány Street Synagogue is Moorish but its design also features a mixture of Byzantine, Romantic and Gothic elements. Two onion-shaped domes sit on the twin octogonal towers at 43 metres (141 ft) height. A rose stained-glass window sits over the main entrance. Similarly to basilicas, the building consists of three spacious richly decorated aisles, two balconies and, unusually, an organ. Its ark contains various torah scrolls taken from other synagogues destroyed during the Holocaust. The Central Synagogue in Manhattan, New York City is a near-exact copy of the Dohány Street Synagogue.

The synagogue's Viennese architect, Ludwig Förster, believed that no distinctively Jewish architecture could be identified, and thus chose "architectural forms that have been used by oriental ethnic groups that are related to the Israelite people, and in particular the Arabs". The interior design is partly by Frigyes Feszl. The Dohány Street Synagogue complex consists of the Great Synagogue, the Heroes' Temple, the graveyard, the Holocaust memorial and the Jewish Museum, which was built on the site on which Theodore Herzl's house of birth once stood. Dohány Street itself, a leafy street in the city center, carries strong Holocaust connotations as it constituted the border of the Budapest Ghetto. History Built in a residential area between 1854-1859 by the Neolog Jewish community of Pest according to the plans of Ludwig Förster, the monumental synagogue has a capacity of 2,964 seats (1,492 for men and 1,472 in the women's galleries) making it the largest in Europe and one of the largest working synagogue in the World, after the Belz Great Synagogue and the Beit Midrash of Ger in Jerusalem, the Breslov Uman Synagogue in Uman, Ukraine, Temple Emanu-el in New York City, and the Yetev Lev D'Satmar synagogue in New York City. The consecration of the synagogue took place on 6 September 1859. The synagogue was bombed by the Hungarian pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party on 3 February 1939. Used as a base for German Radio and also as a stable during World War II, the building suffered some severe damage from aerial raids during the Nazi Occupation but especially during the Siege of Budapest. During the Communist era the damaged structure became again a prayer house for the much-diminished Jewish community. Its restoration started in 1991 and ended in 1998. The restoration was financed by the state and by private donations. Interior The torah-ark and the internal frescoes made of colored and golden geometric shapes are the works of the famous Hungarian romantic architect Frigyes Feszl. A single-span cast iron supports the 12-metre-wide (39 ft) nave. The seats on the ground-floor are for men, while the upper gallery, supported by steel ornamented poles, has seats for women. Franz Liszt and Camille Saint-Saëns played the original 5,000 pipe organ built in 1859. A new mechanical organ with 63 voices and 4 manuals was built in 1996 by the German firm Jehmlich Orgelbau Dresden GmbH. One of the most daring concerts in the Synagogue's history was in 2002, played by the legendary organ virtuoso Xaver Varnus. Four hours before the concert even standing places could hardly be found in the Synagogue, and 7,200 people were sitting and standing to listen to the legendary improvisor’s fiendish virtuosity.

    25/07/18 18:31 Vajdahunyad Castle Vajdahunyad Castle (Hungarian: Vajdahunyad vára) is a castle in the City Park of Budapest, Hungary. It was built between 1896 and 1908 as part of the Millennial Exhibition which celebrated the 1000 years of Hungary since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895. The castle was designed by Ignác Alpár to feature copies of several landmark buildings from different parts the Kingdom of Hungary, especially the Hunyad Castle in Transylvania (now in Romania). As the castle contains parts of buildings from various time periods, it displays different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick between 1904 and 1908. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum of Hungary, the biggest agricultural museum in Europe. The statue of Anonymus is also displayed in the castle court. Anonymus lived in the 12th century (his true identity is unknown, but he was a notary of Béla III of Hungary), who wrote the chronicle Gesta Hungarorum (Deeds of the Hungarians). The castle also contains a statue of Béla Lugosi. Source: Wikipedia

  • [65] Magyar Állami Operaház [8mm version]
    14/07/18 18:31 Hungarian State Opera House The Hungarian State Opera House (Hungarian: Magyar Állami Operaház) is a neo-Renaissance opera house located in central Budapest, on Andrássy út. It is home to the Budapest Opera Ball, a society event dating back to 1886. Before the closure of "Népszínház" in Budapest, it was the second largest opera building in Budapest. Today it is the largest Opera building in Budapest and Hungary. History Designed by Miklós Ybl, a major figure of 19th century Hungarian architecture, the construction lasted from 1875 to 1884 and was funded by the city of Budapest and by Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary. The Hungarian Royal Opera House (as it was known then) opened to the public on the September 27, 1884. Many important artists were guests here including Gustav Mahler the composer who was director in Budapest from 1887 to 1891 and Otto Klemperer who was music director for three years from 1947 to 1950. In the 1970s the state of the building prompted the Hungarian State to order a major renovation which eventually began in 1980 and lasted till 1984. The reopening was held exactly 100 years after the original opening, on the September 27, 1984. Overview It is a richly-decorated building and is considered one of the architect's masterpieces. It was built in neo-Renaissance style, with elements of Baroque. Ornamentation includes paintings and sculptures by leading figures of Hungarian art including Bertalan Székely, Mór Than and Károly Lotz. Although in size and capacity it is not among the greatest, in beauty and the quality of acoustics the Budapest Opera House is considered to be amongst the finest opera houses in the world. The auditorium holds 1261 seats. It is horseshoe shaped and – according to measurements done in the 1970s by a group of international engineers – has the third best acoustics in Europe after La Scala in Milan and the Palais Garnier in Paris. Although many opera houses have been built since, the Budapest Opera House is still among the best in terms of the acoustics. In front of the building are statues of Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Liszt is the best known Hungarian composer. Erkel composed the Hungarian national anthem, and was the first music director of the Opera House; he was also founder of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra. Each year the season lasts from September to the end of June and besides opera performances the Opera House is home to the Hungarian National Ballet. The secondary building of the Hungarian State Opera is Erkel theatre. It is a much larger building that also hosts opera and ballet performances during the opera season. There are guided tours in the building in six languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian and Hungarian) almost every day. Features Facade: The decoration of the symmetrical façade follows a musical theme. In niches on either side of the main entrance there are figures of two of Hungary's most prominent composers, Ferenc Erkel and Franz Liszt. Both were sculpted by Alajos Stróbl. Murals: The vaulted ceiling of the foyer is covered in magnificent murals by Bertalan Székely and Mór Than. They depict the nine Muses. Foyer: The foyer, with its marble columns, gilded vaulted ceiling, murals and chandeliers, gives the State Opera House a feeling of opulence and grandeur. Main Entrance: Wrought-iron lamps illuminate the wide stone staircase and the main entrance. Main Staircase: Going to the opera was a great social occasion in the 19th century. A vast, sweeping staircase was an important element of the opera house as it allowed ladies to show off their new gowns. Interior, Hungarian State Opera House Chandelier: The mail hall is decorated with a bronze chandelier the weighs 3050 kg! It illuminates a magnificent fresco by Károly Lotz, of the Greek gods on Olympus. Central Stage: This proscenium arch stage employed the most modern technology of the time. It featured a revolving stage and metal hydraulic machinery. Royal Box: The royal box is located centrally in the three-storey circle. It is decorated with sculptures symbolizing the four operatic voices - soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Source: Wikipedia

    21/08/18 18:31 Hungarian Parliament Building The Hungarian Parliament Building (Hungarian: Országház, which translates to House of the Country or House of the Nation) is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings, a notable landmark of Hungary and a popular tourist destination of Budapest. It lies in Lajos Kossuth Square, on the bank of the Danube. It is currently the largest building in Hungary and still the tallest building in Budapest. History Budapest was united from three cities in 1873 and seven years later the diet resolved to establish a new, representative Parliament Building, expressing the sovereignty of the nation. An international competition was held, and Imre Steindl emerged as the victor; the plans of two other competitors were later also realized in the form of the Ethnographical Museum and the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, both of which face the Parliament Building. Construction from the winning plan was started in 1885 and the building was inaugurated on the 1000th anniversary of the country in 1896, and completed in 1904. (The architect of the building went blind before its completion.) About one thousand people were involved in construction, during which 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kilograms (88 lb) of gold were used. After World War II the diet became single-chambered and today the government uses only a small portion of the building. During the communist regime a red star perched on the top of the dome, but was removed in 1990. Mátyás Szűrös declared the Hungarian Republic from the balcony facing Lajos Kossuth Square on 23 October 1989. Source: Wikipedia

Artist: Porté par le vent Location: Willemstraat, lichtstraat About the project: The French Porté par le vent (carried by the wind) designs poetic creations that float in the sky. During GLOW we can admire some of their creatures. With their long tails and fan-like wings they look a bit like birds or fish. They remain at height by using a little helium and are visible in the night due to soft colored light. The magical creatures have found a pleasant living environment in the city. Above the Willemstraat they dance a nocturnal ballet. It's like they have just left the shelter of the tall buildings to show themselves to the public for a while in their full glory.

Artist: Jolanda Tielens Location: Oude muur de Effenaar About the project: The arched windows of this old building are covered with canvas. A reminder that behind this façade there was once a canvas factory. Seen from the street, the cloth appears to be lit with a white light, but from the rear it’s obvious that the white light is actually a composite of red, green and blue. When someone walks into the pools of light from these spotlights, their shadow dissolves into spangles of colour. You realise that you can actually paint with light on this virginal white canvas. The people on the street enjoy a shadow theatre that, thanks to the arched décor, brings to mind old-fashioned puppet theatres. The spontaneous scenes played out here couldn’t be more at home; just a stone’s throw away is De Effenaar, a pop venue. Jolanda Tielens is fascinated by the capacity of light to affect our perceptions of a space and direct our behaviour. This is precisely what the artist is exploring with her light projections. Sometimes Tielens opts for inconspicuous lighting and sometimes, such as here, light is centre stage. Source: gloweindhoven
