a design cartel in belgium is a magnet for the rich and. video games have come a long way since pac-man or space invaders to become a large part of today's popular culture here in germany it's estimated that forty percent of the population play video games and that number seems to be growing will like them or not there's no disputing that video games are an integral part of many people's lives so much so the victorian albert museum in london has devoted an entire exhibition to the subject and shows the diversity of modern videogames and how they impact modern culture to this day. video games have become more than just a way to pass the time in fact they're currently being presented as an art form at a museum in london the victoria and albert is dedicating an entire exhibition to be deo games focusing on their development since the early two thousand years there is
a turning point around that access to broadband to social media to new design tools and new commentary online new whites talk about video games help and it's really changed the nature of the media and moved it from a particular direction for its own much border wall but can explore different ideas . that applies to games with a million dollar budget. as well as small independent productions the show with the b.n.a. pays special attention to how games look toward expansion about modern design and so not sensitive video games make perfect sense to be explored here right now digital design is one of the most important elements of contemporary design and that's why we are at the forefront of exploring that one example of outstanding design is that twenty thirteen gaming epic that lanced of us. what are you still freight train cars and trucks players assume the roles of father and daughter
trying to survive in a world ravaged by an epidemic. thanks to an exciting story line matched by deceptively realistic graphics the game is sold millions of copies. the exhibit reveals the months long painstaking work that goes into developing stories and game design. design is also key to the success of journey a surprise hit from twenty twelve. players roam a virtual desert that's where the game's developer. went to a real sandy environment to design. it went to that is no dunes of the store through l.a. and decided to spend time running in the sand and you could see me playing with a scarf in the air and you know just sliding and walking and feeling with the sand
felt like because we really wanted to build this summer said world where this and does a unique feature. journey was the first video game ever to be nominated for a grammy it soundtrack was a contender in twenty thirteen. oh. i think one of the biggest things that you can do is you can really reach for something new and different go into the blue ocean and try to find other things unique feeling or unique style or unique way of interacting that really captures hearts. the exhibition also make space for games that dive into topical social issues like the game how do you do it with its playful take on gender issues. the graveyard tackles issues of aging players take on the role of an elderly woman a big contrast to brutal first person shooters. harvey and marcos i mean
developed the game a lot of video games deal with deaths but they deal with them in very artificial ways and confronting a gamer with the idea of death was sort of in a way we were playing with their expectations of what games death is and then also making them think about well the human condition at the same time just what we wanted to show this this confrontation of life and death in the city and the harmony between those. in the virtual and the real worlds are growing closer. for example game fashion to see inspired by design. as in reality and vice versa. players go beyond just playing it they create they they take the characters from these walls offline in create culls play and they create communities and you know i think both of these there isn't some topics of superphosphate for the future of anyway. sure to victoria and albert museum and back at the beginning at least in
occurrence it's an arcade retro style hands on that you can touch and try out culturally experimenting and having fun is what games are all about and in this case in a museum. while another exhibition is drawing to many visitors to moscow a berlin landmark turns fifty and a new film about the famous playwright bad told the silver screen those stories and more coming up in today's express. the new film about their top breasts threepenny opera has made it to the silver screen. starring to be a small retie and last idea the german a belgian production premiered in berlin on monday. the tale of murder and prostitution was first to be filmed in the late one nine hundred twenty s.

ursula scale in the great. goodness and it'll feel too much wine is not good either because then the winds have too much alcohol and the mosul isn't known for high alcohol wines but. more delicate wine. so now they're hoping for rain so that the grapes are juicy enough otherwise the visitors will have to start harvesting quickly marcus long is getting his cellars ready he needs enough space to prove the great after they've been picked. red wines would actually be better suited to the unusually hot climate marcus long and grow some red wine varieties like cabernet sauvignon and more low. the sun kissed summer has the wine growers hoping for a super vintage for their reds they could even compare with some of these rarities from the one nine hundred sixty s. seventy's and eighty's and marcus long collection. in twenty eighteen is

the most expensive ones in the world by far the thing that this doctor to be tried in the one nine hundred twenty s. a reason cost two or three times as much as the most expensive or dollar burgundy so our aim and that of other highly successful wineries is to bring the most all back to where it was one hundred years ago. each slope is different with its own individual flavors but ninety percent are devoted to one great reason to get the best results the grapes are harvested as late as possible the slate soils make morsel rieslings unique. is easy and before you see how fine the slate is here it produces very mineral rich riesling wines with spicy notes and what's great about this slate is that it's always releasing new minerals into the soil which i guess it's. slate gives the most a wind its trademark taste it's also the building material for this prize winning architecture. marcus long and rents out to visitors so as not to be exclusively
dependent on wine growing guests can stay overnight in these winter cottages the italian architect much to turn designed i'm inspired by the figures typical worker cuts on the slopes. he must get to be. out of our guests have never been to the most already full they don't know this valley and are only discovering it now we didn't used to have the accommodations so these are all new guests many architecture freaks but also cyclists hikers and people on leisure trips in the. state has plenty to offer because riesling the number one attraction it can also be enjoyed as a. handshake and. draws visitors with its beautiful vistas of the river and the hills it's one of germany's top travel destinations. it's the great

punches about sweat pants. sweat pants are a symbol of failure you've lost control of your life and you walk around in sweat pants this talk show remark takes place on our list. his opinion seems to impress everyone except himself two years after ridiculing sweat pants he sent down the catwalk in sweat pants. fashion is fickle and karl lagerfeld the pit of my eyes is that that's logical enough trends come and go he says including when it comes to models. someone thought of as beautiful today will hardly find a cleaning job to. maro. this statement shocked the fashion world we rated fourth among lagerfeld books in two thousand and eleven he even disparaged clodius schiffer long his muse no one wants to see her any more. in the meantime they're bosom buddies again. there's one gal he'll never say anything bad
about his favorite new. siamese cat with blue eyes has a hold on lagerfeld otherwise well controlled emotions are third place. i never would have thought i'd fall in love so hard if i could i'd marry shoe pet said the master in an interview in two thousand and thirteen it's rumored to even eat at the same table everyone knows that lagerfeld would never humiliate a partner by making her eat off the floor. sunglasses and black gloves powdered hair and a rolls royce karl lagerfeld is extravagance personified yet the designer considers himself pretty well grounded. i've got my feet firmly on the ground but not on this earth is how he defines his life style second place for that remark we believe him implicitly. but don't be
fooled by the glitz and glamor karl lagerfeld success is based on hard work and discipline even if he pretends otherwise. i don't know stress i only know stross rhinestone he once said coquettishly now that's a worthy line for the top of the charts an outrageous lagerfeld remarks in any case karl lagerfeld doesn't let the fashion circus worry him maybe that's the secret of his success. i wonder if karl lagerfeld would have anything to say about the subject in our next report the or the white. hotel in belgium it's known to be popular with the stars and its guests include singers carla bruni and adele now the hotel is in a seventeenth century building located in the center of town no two rooms are alike with the lots of attention given to detail and design visitors will have to dig
a bit deep in their pockets though if they want to stay here is the room start at three hundred euros per night so let's have a look now at what makes this accommodation so special. want to sleep under the same roof as the rich and famous in antwerp old quarter then with sydney hotel that's the place for you own up to shop posts models musicians and actors from around the world in the refurbished seventeenth century building. so you know we have some by spirit for i feel welcome well for example three or four weeks ago carla bruni was here oh and she wrote you thank you. for the great time caught in a brownie. and then pop. thanks very much very much and his signature signature. and their own there's this guy. he comes every two or three years trying to work when i'm defo. thank you de witt to the lease says and then he says and
then he writes thank you part. but the same room that carla bruni and other v.i.p.'s use you have to book the presidential suite double to missed us as a double room that cost six hundred thirty five euros a night out but you can also book it as a single and then it's around four hundred ninety five. prominent guest enjoyed the privacy not long ago adele stayed here. hello. it's me. does. she run of the entire hotel for a whole week and every night yes she slept in a different room and the theme of the show off and. shop bought the hotel in two thousand and eight and remodeled it according to his own taste. in motel minutes and you know we use only the best materials in the sotto that's it from the place is from flavor paper that's

eleven rooms the hotel owner leads nothing chance. he plans every detail like in the new suite being complete in the attic the shop is not just fond of exclusive wallpaper and furniture while traveling he was often annoyed by narrow or impractical bathrooms for me. when i go on vacation i stop when i visit or syria or go to the beach beach the most important thing in the room for me is the bathroom and good having a really good shower. here they're actually all gold faucets and the shower is concealed in a kind of chandelier. but the kitchen is not hidden away behind closed doors any guest who feels like cooking can use it. sometimes the guests come to the kitchen or make themselves in their cafe that's it it's cozy and people feel home here that's part of the idea of the hotel from.
