    Yellowtrace Presents // MILANTRACE, Edizione 2014 (#MDW14).

    25th April

    Dearest Yellowtracers, Team Yellowtrace is back from Milan Design Week once again. Holy moly – what an amazing trip. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite moments from the #MDW14. Also, I wanted to explain that this year we are taking things to the next level with our Milan report, also known as MILANTRACE, Edizione 2014.

    You see, with the proliferation of social media channels, blogs and websites, it feels like Milan Design Week gets washed over and forgotten in no time. Instagram pics are uploaded and #hashtagged, press releases are churned out, quick roundups are shared.

    Rwanda Education Centre by Dominikus Stark Architekten // Nyanza, Rwanda.

    22nd April

    Bricks. They’re probably my favourite. Bricks skillfully dispersed around a beautiful courtyard – ding dong! We’re journeying into the heart of darkness today, to Nyanza, Rwanda, where stands this remarkable Education Centre designed by Dominikus Stark Architekten. The photographs are from the architect’s website. To my eye, the low, bricky forms of this building immediately recall the Fredensborg houses by Jorn Utzon.
