Dressing The Air is the brainchild of the London-based artist Paul Schütze.

In a career spanning 30 years, Schütze has exhibited his photographic and installation works in galleries and museums around the world, released over thirty albums of original recordings, scored a number of films and performed numerous concerts. He has collaborated with artists such as James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien and musicians as diverse as Bill Laswell, Raoul Björkenheim, Toshinori Kondo, Lol Coxhill and Jah Wobble.

Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

STM School of Technology and Management / MONTENEGRO Architects

While we frown on purely form driven projects here at DTA, this is a case where the form itself is so startling, so well resolved and so apt, it deserves special pleading. The ruthless precision MONTENEGRO Architects express through the blade like canopy with its beautiful shadows and almost mesmerizing physical lure is undeniable. STM School of Technology and Management as an image will be enthusiastically transmitted around the globe to viewers who are unlikely to visit the site itself. However a closer look at the plan and the less startling views reveals a series of spaces which do feel entirely fit for purpose and which continue to express a coherent design identity. I am amongst the majority who have not seen the building in person but even from the huge remove of online viewing it seems well worth celebrating.
