director of the french why project label since two thousand and thirteen. he creates fashions for both men and women some of his pieces are unisex. his very latest women's collection is among his most adventurous coat dresses with trains. shorts brampton or guns or. spiral. shirts with four sleeves. legs that show skin oh yeah that's what i'm aiming for is to show a person's various sides we all have several facets sometimes you're more a business person sometimes more a lover or a party or. you should give expression to these different moods but whether sexy a classical or street where it's often you can achieve that with a single piece of clothing and with that when you're in that frame of mind and you put on your look at the person and the outfit become
12:34 am
a unified whole these are topics on this with. clint martin's approach to constructing deconstructing items of clothing has roots to run deep. before he attended the fashion academy and he completed his studies in architecture . he draws inspiration from historical buildings and personalities. my father often took me to churches and chateaus and taught me about history i was totally fascinated by it as a child when i started to draw i always sketched historical figures like the holy in cleopatra and ran to a national sort of their clothing was very important for me because i knew clothes make the man because these influences can still be found in my collections today even though they're modern. with all but i could it's ok massive cultural but. these designs are historical and of angara all at once the visual made and the
12:35 am
skirt made from blue nylon is reminiscent of marie antoinette and the renaissance of keep it on is what the idea behind it is that it's three skirts and one and that gives it a certain volume of. martin's ingenious combinations of one over the fashion world in paris critics here rave on whose extract it creations is this classic. from the painting from the ancient period. but we do this straight to a tourist and i find this one of the most innovative brain because of this kind of . makes it a can me made it actually is not streetwear is not good to but he's something you know that i always i mean color scheme is to see i've watched it evolve you know in his own collection and ever since he started one project in the beginning it was tough the first couple seasons but it was great watching you is seeing that you get stronger and stronger and make use of one of the rare designers now that has
12:36 am
a signature and it's playing with volumes playing with this history playing with graphics he's great. celebrities have also discovered landmark in r. and b. singer eon is also a fan so are top models brother and g.g. i did. maybe they'll find the perfect on fit in his latest collection. but right now glen martin's is simply glad the show's over and he's off to celebrate with his team. and from street where to street art which has finally found its rightful home here in the german capital urban nation is a new addition to berlin's museum landscape that aims to help bring street artists to the next level in public awareness and so it commissioned a number of works for its opening exhibition to create some street art with staying
12:37 am
power that people can then recognize outside. street art is ephemeral. metre high art works that grace entire facades are made for eternity. and buildings can get torn down or repainted so legal or not street art is transitory by nature. now the urban nation museum in berlin is out to bring street art indoors it's one of the world's first prominent museums for contemporary urban art. but can art born on the street really work in a museum. through the heart of the street art belongs on the street and should stay there here at the urbanization museum and we asked one hundred thirty artists who normally decorate building walls to come up with an artwork measuring one metre by one metre fifty for the museum. from when does
12:38 am
a currency down in but at the same time we will continue to work with these artists on large outdoor projects of halls and. the aesthetics and styles of various street artists are now captured on canvas this helps visitors identify the artist's work out on the street. it's been positive i'm surprised to see street art in a museum park what kind of spread patients were high but now it's amazing like the the collection this wow i have great respect for the people who organize this getting the people together and the artists so the self. creative director yasha young spent two years working with nine other curators around the globe to select the artists for the project. the exhibition showcases urban contemporary art giving a relatively young a place in art history but the new museum wants to be more than just an exhibition
12:39 am
space. as i think is more than museums an aim is to create a repository for urban art the first exhibition provides insights into the developments techniques styles and diversity of urban art. the urban nation museum also showcases artists who work in different genres. like berlin based artist me meet s. the former street artist now works digitally in a studio but it's still clear where her roots are and is a fantasist to me. it's an honor for me to be represented here to be here as an illustrator and a digital artist or digital painter with a relatively new medium that isn't so widely accepted and only recently found a degree of recognition. i fought for ten years for this so the feeling is indescribable. with its framed canvases and orderly structure the current
12:40 am
exhibition seems like ones found in conventional museums however the buildings architectural design will provide plenty of space for experimental shows in the future. also. the building is flexible enough for us to paint entire walls that are twenty meters high we can paint the facade or remove it and add new elements to it into the house that's the inaugural exhibition runs until next summer then the exhibits will make way for new works of street art but no fear rather than being destroyed the outgoing pieces will be stored for posterity. well it's a veritable legend in automotive history the citron two c.v. known as the who in french and lovingly nicknamed in german enta which means duck all the relatively inexpensive friend's car was first unveiled in paris in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and at the time it captured the hearts of a nation still recovering from the ravages of war well it's still

a much loved model today with such symbolic flair that one carpenter in central france has paid homage to it like no one before him. this situ and to see partition is made of wood but you can still drive it. after five years of work the car's maker mission is taking it out on its maiden voyage through the medieval town of english. this is the first time it's been on the streets of france in russia. i guess. you like it here. but it's that instead of getting a little bicycle i've got a little car. the feeling you know what the idea was to build additional not any other cars but my heart set on building additional with the

adventure began five years ago with this two cd built in one nine hundred fifty three it was just rusting away in a barn. that's. my came here thousands of times with my pencil my meter stick and paper to take all the measurements. on. then the retired carpenter began creating the car out of wood in his workshop based on blueprints sketched. i assembled everything on pieces by piece. to the platform on the chassis of addition. and then i constructed my frame on the top. and then i had to wait till the doors the hole in the wings to fit the standard

body shell. michele fashioned his car from the would have a variety of fruit trees where there pear apple or cherry trees he used only once from the water alley. installing the sixteen horsepower engine was one of the easier tasks faithfully reproducing the different parts of the car's body was incredibly time consuming. said. this piece of wood here these air intakes it took three days of work so you know machine can do this so i had to do everything by hand with. the time wasn't an issue for me with that it didn't matter if i needed four or five years i just wanted to make a model that was unique. michelle is something of an expert at making wooden cars but one to ten scale model once he exits them in

a little museum which he opens to visitors at the this wouldn't is now the main exhibit and his masterpiece. you might get don't bomb you can make hundreds of little wooden models like this from all makes of cars but building a full scale model like this is something you will only do once in a lifetime there will be a second time. mill that the sawing and sanding is done michelle plans to spend the coming years showing off the fruits of his labor. but michelle has even bigger plans for his wooden car. and exposing my want to exhibited in art galleries and the big easy and is on the shelves ailey's am paris i think you know they don't exist so it maybe even at the foot of the eiffel tower . hope you know what. michel proby on knows that his car is a real attraction after all people were drawn to it from the moment the wooden
12:46 am
dishes made its debut in the streets of los. eight levels over five floors that doesn't even sound like that's possible and yet it was so intriguing that we made the trip to edinburgh scotland to visit the murphy house a british architect richard murphy took ten years to make his dream home a reality and it seems that it was indeed worth the wait last year he raked in six awards including the reba house of the year prize as a fine example of how to overcome challenging spatial constraints. this house is full of surprises sliding all pivoting panels transform each space they can be found throughout the entire structure. this is the murphy house designed and owned by architect richard murphy.
12:47 am
in two thousand and sixteen it was named house of the year by the royal institute of british architects. there are lots of ideas behind this has how it fits centerpiece of historic edinburgh how it changes between winter and summer how you get a lot of rooms into a very small space save energy and how an architect really brings to bear his own inferences interests of other architects he started. that's quite a limited volume of space so the shape of the has came from that building up high on one side and low on the other and then try to as i say get as lots of many rooms in those possible i'm using various devices to make the house feel bigger than it actually is. a house and it's unique architecture certainly stands out in edinburgh as popular newton district most of the houses here were built in the nineteenth
12:48 am
century and present the world example of uninterrupted lake george an architecture . and not the house eight levels spread over five stories with one hundred forty square metres of living space. it took richard murphy a total of ten years to build his house from seeing the site drawing up the plans to getting the building permits. the master bedroom is located on the top floor and also contains large movable panels here to. there is an element of surprise. it's a small house and space is a premium but i want to have a bath somewhere in the house so i thought why didn't i put a path in the bedroom but i disguised it as a seat. this is a panel which opens up between the bedroom and the living room i mean one does
12:49 am
things for different reasons sometimes you do them for social reasons and sometimes you do the for piece of fun this is more of a piece of fun so that when you're in the bedroom you can talk to people down in the living if you want to the reason it's designed like this such as the eccentric pivots is because you don't want to be able to see straight ahead because if you saw straight ahead you be able to see from the bed into the neighbor's windows which is not such a clever idea. there was a long period of time when it looked like the matthew house would never be found. after a lot of wrangling with the planning department they actually recommended refusal but i went and talked to a couple of local councillors who were on the planning committee and they understood what i was trying to do and they talked to other councillors and when we got to the committee meeting the councillors overturned the recommended refusal of the money bubble which is extremely rare the house doesn't really plan then so what are the neighbors think they'll complain of course so lots of them did anyway and
12:50 am
there was a bit of a campaign but almost to quote shakespeare they complained a little bit too much actually and i think that rebounded a bit on the councillors having finished the house i thought exactly the opposite reaction from neighbors they all love it. matthews use of concrete levels and geometric shapes were inspired by the ninety tally an architect can. even hear out in the garden there is great attention to detail. a walk from top to bottom helps keep the visitor had a better idea of all the details of the house. richard murphy has lived in his house for two and a half years now and he wouldn't change
12:51 am
a thing if he had to build it all over again. a long devotee is a rare feat in the field of product design and it's of course any designers dream that their creations have the staying power of something like an ames or a boss alone a chair but some pieces are indeed made to stand the test of time and this year it's the italian brand cartel that celebrating fifty years of its perpetual best seller the company billy container. this plastic barrel is celebrating its fiftieth birthday this classic of italian design has held its own in living rooms and office spaces around the world for half a century. milan based architect and designer ana. marie who died in two thousand and six design the much loved storage unit in the one nine hundred sixty s. with a different case of what happened during this period. our perception of space and
12:52 am
time changed just as it has today. people wanted functional but flexible furniture. the round container became more popular than its four sided predecessor. granddaughter. works for the italian brand cartel. that's where her grandmother was creative director when she designed the company. my grandmother unaccustomed in february was a strong confident woman. she was the first woman to graduate in architecture at her university in milan. she said you can do anything you just have to be confident in your ideas and have the desire to implement them. kompany be modular the margin it's are made up of small individual elements which can be taken

apart at will. the company allows you to divide rooms up a new way. in the nine hundred sixty s. the company billy was something totally new a real innovation. but living spaces were getting smaller and more people will living alone. the company believe were very easy to rearrange to suit any atmosphere. that explains the success they enjoy right up to the present day. cartel has a flagship store in london. to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary the company invited twenty one renowned designers from all over the world to develop their unique take on the original. here's what fran hickman came up with. very much driven by my clients.
