A magnificent demonstration of the change created by the transformation of a place: Gatorade has volunteered to transform secretly the locker room of an American basketball junior team. The room had never changed since 1962 and they transformed it, exactly, in a NBA locker room. And how did the teens feel? amazed, considered, and much more motivated.

If turning them into museums was the first wave of evolution, other initiatives are worth our attention, such as the one presented here: the transformation of old sugar silos in Montreal in an indoor climbing club with amazing height facilities.

If a star manages to become a brand, it is also because they know how to bring their name to life in different environments.

Transférer un lieu vers un nouvel usage est maintenant chose courante en architecture. Mais certains changements semblent douteux. Celui de ce nouveau lieu est assez incroyable puisqu’il transforme d’anciennes toilettes publiques en café. En gardant même certains éléments de porcelaine d’origine. Osé, certes, mais une bonne idée, c’est moins sûr. Et vous, qu’en pensez-vous ?   Turning a place to a new usage is now common in today’s architecture. But some changes… Lire la Suite
