There’s not much that hasn’t already been said of 3D printing or the predicted revolution that promised to transform manufacturing and put a MakerBot in every home. While the technology continues to evolve, with new applications like cutting-edge medical uses and building-size structures, it has yet to truly overtake industrial production in the mainstream market–though not for lack of effort.

At just 160 square feet, it’s a wonder the Los Angeles MINI LIVING Urban Cabin fits a bedroom, dining room, kitchenette, bathroom, and entryway atrium in service of “contemplation” all within the confines of its micro-cabin dimensions. There’s even a small rooftop garden crowning the Urban Cabin. Yet, the spatial origami realized by MINI LIVING in collaboration with Los Angeles architecture firm FreelandBuck assembled atop of the ROW DTLA for this past weekend’s LA Design Festival presents small space living not as compromise, but instead as an opportunity for ideas as expansive and transformative as the city it was designed to represent.

“Yishu Wang’s”:https://www.instagram.com/yishuwang/ photography is bound to make you stop, look, look again and finally admit that you have no clue what’s going on. From overview shots of hundreds of uniformed men dressed in red suits to Orwellian CCTV structures, Yishu’s portfolio is wonderfully disorientating. Based in Wuzhen, a scenic town near Shanghai, Yishu has worked as a top photojournalist in Chinese media for the past 15 years. His job has offered Yishu endless opportunities to travel extensively across China from large metropolises to remote villages, documenting what he sees as he goes. “Many viewers have told me that my photography is similar to literature in that the images seem to have plots. But when I was taking the photos, I wasn’t thinking about narratives. I was just relaxed and receptive to any scenario that came my way,” Yishu tells It’s Nice That.

The Sewn Timber Shell investigates the use of robotics and sensing mechanisms in combination with garment design and industrial sewing techniques to explore a new way of fabricating tailored wood structures and re-engaging with traditional craftsmanship. The related research studies traditional garment patterning and connection techniques still used in fashion today and re-interprets them in a new material context. Fabric is replaced by thin sheets of plywood, which establishes an altered relation between material pliability and stiffness and thus introduces loadbearing capacity to the novel material system.

Defining space without walls and achieving transparency without glass, Lukstudio creates an interior concept for Longxiaobao inspired by noodles. The new restaurant in the Sun Moon Light Center reflects its other Shanghai location with an abstract interpretation of a noodle rack: a dynamic grid of steel bars that defines its ethereal presence. Reminiscent of a pixelated computer graphic, the grid superimposes a mathematical manner of interpreting orientation, enlarging the perceived volume of the room while serving practical functions. The white steel structure functions as partition, ceiling, seating, and shelving without obstructing views between the interior and exterior.

MAD has built a cluster of housing towers in China’s Anhui province, which take their forms from the granite contours of the Huangshan mountain range.

Ten housing blocks make up MAD’s Huangshan Mountain Village. The floorplates of each one decrease in scale towards the summit, tapering to create a peak-like formation along the edge of Taiping Lake.

Junction City has all the trappings of an Iraqi town: a brightly painted mosque; shops adorned with Arabic script; the occasional humvee or tank rumbling by. But you won’t find it anywhere near Mosul. It’s a stage set at Fort Irwin, in the middle of California’s Mojave Desert, where US troops simulate fighting insurgents.

RIGI Design designed a new office for film company Firstcry Film, located in Shanghai, China. This is a place about the film, or we could say it is a place where people gathered to do something for a film. The film industry is an industry with a sense of ceremony. From script to shooting, screening to watching, no matter for director or audience, space in and between the curtain with 24 frames per second, and every dramatic clip, they are part of the film. The film is not just a linear narrative.
