Stunning images of the spectacular Wave building just completed in Demark

The Wave Development – design by Henning Larsen Architects in Jutland, Denmark reached it’s final completion following an eleven-year construction period interrupted by the global financial crisis, Henning Larsen’s The Wave apartment building in Vejle,

The Wave incorporates an open, public pier – establishing it as a social and residential hub, and an enduring presence in the vitalization of the Vejle waterfront.


After construction efforts were re-initiated in 2015, the final three towers are complete – fulfilling Henning Larsen‘s original vision. Its five iconic crests rising above Vejle Fjord, The Wave stands as an architectural tribute to local heritage and geography.

“The land surrounding Vejle is unique for its rolling hills, which are an uncommon sight in Denmark,”
explains Søren Øllgaard, Partner and Design Director at Henning Larsen.

“We designed The Wave as striking new presence in the Vejle skyline, one that reflects and embodies the surrounding area. We feel our design merges our own contemporary designs with a strong sense of local identity.”

French artist encases coral reefs in colorful glass displays

Since childhood, a real feeling of helplessness and guilt has been eating away at the way the human species works, without worrying about the environment.

At the origin of my practice was to find how to live with, learn to listen to this pain rather than bury it to finally know the appeasement. This gave birth to a first series of works entitled “Lungs of the Oceans” intended to awaken the feeling of wonder for the nature that surrounds us and the desire to protect it

Series created between 2014 & 2018, dummy corals in textile & recovery materials – Fred Margueron p .

Created by Aude Bourgine , a french artist from Rouen, Aude has always been overtaken with strong feelings of guilt and powerlessness surrounding the human species way of acting without a care for its environment.

Her practice began as a search for a way to live with, and to learn to listen to, the distress of the ocean, rather than burying it to attain a certain peace of mind. 

“If we do not rapidly change our relationship with our environment, oceans will be dead by 2050. Their disappearance will entail a disastrous imbalance on all ecological, climate and human levels.”

Aude Bourgine has taken on this topic in her meticulous and dreamlike style, driven by the hope of raising awareness on these issues and convincing us that we can still get our act together.

10+ Surreal marble sculptures in movements by British sculptor

Michael has created many sculptures that incorporate classical drapery.

“I used to carefully study the play of different materials and meticulously recreate every aspect of the weight, tension and hang of the material in my sculpture, agonising over how to sculpt the edge of a drape where a foot protruded from beneath, trying to balance realism with the aesthetic of the piece”.

Michael’s ‘Emergent Collection’ beautifully demonstrates that he is no longer troubled with the same anxieties.

“I like to think this particular style of sculpting is a more mature and enlightened approach to such problems”.

In this collection, he introduces a flat plain to balance and divide the fully sculpted figure and disregard the formal studied limitations of the drapery. The drapery becomes the plain, which is both a solid form in its own right and yet is also at one with the figure, revealing and yet concealing the contours of the human form beneath.

Where a foot protrudes from the plain, the foot simply emerges, as if emerging from a pool of still water. With this technique I can focus on the beauty in the gesture or movement, without being hampered by physical reality – because it makes no sense, it makes perfect sense.
