On Saturday 20th May from 5-6pm Astrid and Mark will be giving a talk on design, architecture and the experience of creating innovative retail experiences with leading brands such as Tsutaya Books, Sony, BMW and now Central Embassy.
Open House is a village of spaces, each with a familiar human scale - restaurants, lounges, bars, galleries, stores, pop-ups, libraries and co-working spaces that all seamlessly come together. A space to feel at home in, to relax in and be inspired in. A place to hang out, a place to play, a place to study and a place to eat.
Come and watch Astrid and Mark talk, and see for yourself Bangkok's hottest new destination.

The great and the good from the architecture world turned up to watch their friends and colleagues present 20 slides for 20 seconds each.
Simon Allford, Mariana Simas, Fernando Menis and Miquel Adria all took to the mic to deliver their six minutes and forty seconds to the crowd at Berlin’s Glashaus.

We will be supporting the Fukushima Fest in Roppongi Hill Arena this weekend. Drop in if you have a moment a make your very own cute Akabekko that we have designed for the event. It's a symbol of good luck an prosperity in the Tohoku region.
Last year we built a full size Akabekko and people decorated it with messages of good luck and love! Over the last 12 months it has been travelling around the region and it will be on display again this weekend. Come and add your message to it too!
昨年は 2.5m x１.５mの大きな赤べこをダンボールで作りみんなにメッセージを書いてもらいました！この１２ヶ月の間、各地方をまわりまわって今週末に六本木ヒルズアリーナに再び現れます。
The festival is always really fun... and for a great cause - helping the region get back on its feet after the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear issues. It's a long recovery process and it is great to bring into focus once a year like this.
There are some great food and craft stalls - and some of Japan's top bands, with roots in the Tohoku region, will be playing on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Last year both evenings were insanely good!
Congratulations to Yasuyuki Taminaga from Black Bath who does a brilliant job helping coordinate this festival all year. Keep it up Tame-chan!
Mark will be in London for the Design Festival, catch him here:
Wednesday 23rd September, 3.00pm
100% Design, Earls Court - Main Auditorium
"How does colour make you feel"
Why are we attracted to certain colours? Is it instinctive, or are there deeper psychological reasons? Shouldn't think about how colour makes us feel rather than simply how it looks? Architect Mark Dytham, from Tokyo-based Klein Dytham, known for bold use of colour speaks, alongside colour psychologist Angela Wright, while neuroscientist Gabriele Jordan explains how we all see colours differently. Paul Finch, editorial director of the Architects' Journal, chairs.
