Well Built

Tuesday, August 4, 2009


So, this is Ole Scheeren. He's a German architect. In fact, he's probably the new architect's architect. Incredibly (emphasis on incredibly) handsome and talented as all get out, Ole works for one of the most prestigious architectural firms in the world, OMA. I just came across his stunning profile (his body of work, of course ;). He works primarily in Asia, but has created designs for buildings in New York and LA and parts of Germany. Recently, I saw some images of his newest project, the stunning apartment complex Mahanakhon located in Bangkok. Check the photos below to see his visual aspiration for a 300-meter mixed tower with 77 floors that looks like its disintegrating into white pixels in mid air. You can just imagine the sun glinting off this building in early morning. And you may recognize Ole's girlfriend, re known Chinese actress Maggie Cheung.

  1. Thanks for the intro. I am a fan of Maggie and her work, but didn't know her "boyfriend." Smile. Interesting concept for the blndg.

  2. Hey Lenox :) Thanks for checking out the blog. I didn't know too much about Maggie before this, but I'd love to see some of her movies.
