In this month’s architecture and design video round-up (above), Madrid-based design office Puntofilipino leant into the legacy of artists who travel to Spain’s Andalusian coast when creating the Casa R+1 residence in Almería. Aligned with the commencement of this year’s Milan Design Week, legendary Italian ceramics-maker Bitossi has unveiled The Bitossi Archive Museum in Florence.

Also making its debut during this year’s Milan Design Week, Venus Power is a collection of rugs by Patricia Urquiola created for Italian design company cc-tapis. In Denmark, the Wadden Sea National Park on the country’s west coast has a new attraction – a 25-metre-high lookout by BIG architects that spirals upward from the landscape like the pointy end of a corkscrew. 

In Kyiv, Ukraine, the recently completed 6:19 Studio by Balbek Bureau walks the line between tattoo parlour and contemporary art gallery. And, finally this month, Beijing-based MAD Architects has unveiled its designs for the Hainan Science and Technology Museum in Haikou, the capital of Hainan, one of China’s island provinces.
