CityScape: Arne Quinze

CityScape is a colossal fortress of tangled wood hovering in the heart of Brussels for the next year reflecting a frozen moment in time gesturing the increasingly influential city of Brussel within Europe’s capital. The project was funded by MINI for to coincide with the world premiere of the new MINI Clubman Car, which is pretty sweet, though the back reminds me of a refrigerator nostalgically.

CityScape is the vision of designer Arne Quinze who directs the fast paced multidisciplinary firm Quinze&Milan.(They rock!) Their work has been seen around the world, but I first noticed them from last years Burning Man sculpture in Black Rock city which they later burned down like champs! Cityscape reminds me of the trippy Tunnel House in a higher budget way.

I’ve copied a ton of images after the jump, otherwise, go to their BLOG for more pictures, videos, and information.(one YouTube Video about the project)

    Seems like a waste of good lumber to me… could’ve been used to build something USEFULL, like a HOUSE for HOMELESS PEOPLE! I think people as a whole have lost sight of the things that really matter. 🙁

    My thoughts exactly, a waste of lumber. How many trees died for this so called art?

    God some people just don’t appreciate Art, even when it is put out in a public space for you to enjoy. What a stupid thing to say – ‘waste of lumber’ – so do you think that all art should be scrapped because you don’t understand it – it is there to enjoy, so you don’t get depressed when you walk round a boring place. Lighten up!!
