Museu Do Futebol

The Museu Do Futebol in Sao Paulo, Brazil beautifully celebrates the history of Brazilian soccer, with special focus on the five FIFA World Cup wins. Housed in the grand old Pacaembu Stadium, there is a great deal of simple storytelling that goes beyond just the statistics of scores and teams. Visiting the museum really helps one to understand Brazil’s passion and pride for their sport. Read more of this post

Inspiration from São Paulo Brazil

FRCH-Brazil-Retail-InspirationRetail is alive in Brazil! During a recent trip we had fun exploring Brazil, including all types of retail and how they leverage their brand, architecture, visual merchandising and graphic style to create unique brand experiences. From upscale Brazilian retailers like Richards and OSKLEN to local Drugstores like Drogaria, as well as fun specialty brands like Havaianas, it’s great to take a closer look at the details as inspiration. It was also great to see some of FRCH’s work firsthand in São Paulo, like the Timberland store on Oscar Freire.  While designed several years ago, it still provides a strong brand experience today.

Jardin d’Amis

A31-05A common truth about being an Architect or Designer is that for many of us, one of the reasons we got into our profession in the first place is because we were first inspired to create environments for ourselves as children. After we complete our training and begin working in our profession, the next thing we often set our sights on is renovating our home. Often times it involves a kitchen renovation or addition. In my case it was something very different. Mine was to create an architectural and artistic respite within the shell of a deteriorating early 20th Century garage.

I call it “Jardin d’Amis” or “Garden of Friends”. Read more of this post

The Heineken Experience

Heineken

Located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Heineken Experience is a museum that celebrates the brand’s rich brewing history. The museum itself is located inside of the first Heineken brewery, which was established in 1867. I found my experience at the museum to be very positive due to the overall design of all the different exhibits as well as the interactive and communal aspects of the tour. I would recommend this tour for your next visit to Amsterdam and the best part is it’s only 18€ for several hours of fun! Read more of this post
