#AccidentalWesAnderson Bastei Building | Cologne, Germany | c. 1924 • • The Bastei is a building in Cologne-Neustadt-Nord , located at the northern end of the Kölner Ringe on the banks of the Rhine.

The center of the jagged roof crowns an open-topped peak • • The construction of the building was very controversial, as there were fears that the city silhouette could be negatively affected. However, upon completion, the enthusiasm was great and architecture critic Heinrich de Fries wrote that the building was “wed with the landscape, the current and the bridges, almost completely liberated from the base, from which it is outgrown.” • • After heavy damage in 1943 during the war, the bastion was restored by Riphahn in 1958 and reopened by the Lord Mayor of Cologne Theo Burauen • • Then on December 4th, 1958 Hans Herbert Blatzheim opened a restaurant in the Bastei, which was awarded a Michelin star • • In 1985, the building was completely renovated and now the postwar structure carries a lighted trident on the rooftop – while still a restaurant, since 1997, the Bastei can only be rented for private events • • Know more?

The presence of these industries attracted railway promoters and the station opened in 1885 • • While the development of Swanage as a tourist resort brought additional passenger traffic to the line, the collapse of both the clay and marble industries, and the increase in private car ownership in the second half of the 20th century made the line unprofitable • • Closure was first proposed in 1967, and despite local opposition the line finally closed on January 3, 1972, but a campaign to reopen the railway as a steam locomotive operated heritage railway developed and Corfe Castle station eventually reopened in August 1995 (although the official opening was not until February of the following year) • • Corfe Castle still operates today and the station is also the home of the Swanage Railway’s Railway Museum, which is housed in the old goods shed and an adjacent rail van.

_________________________ Zwembad Veldstraat | Antwerp, Belgium | c. 1933 • • Zwembad Veldstraat is the oldest preserved swimming pool in the city of Antwerp, Belgium – located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Brussels, and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) from the Dutch border • • The art deco complex dates back to 1933 when it consisted of a swimming pool with changing cubicles and 24 bathrooms for the use of those who, as was common at the time, did not have indoor sanitary facilities at home • • The design has been attributed to both architects Algoet and Emiel Van Averbeke (1876 – 1946). The latter was the chief builder of the city during this period, but the building does not match his characteristic style • • The building survived the Second World War but did take some damage and fell into disrepair as the rest of the city was being rebuilt. Repairs and updates were made throughout the years, such as coal-fired heating system being replaced by gas-fired boilers in the 1970’s. Nevertheless, it gradually became older and needed more than typical maintenance • • In 1998 the building was designated as a monument, but in 2005 the pool was declared to be below the standard required by law. The baths were closed and the changing rooms, pool and parts of the bathrooms renovated to their original state – even down to restoration of the stained glass windows • • In place of public baths, came a hammam, herbal baths, a dance hall and gymnasium, and a cafe/restaurant. The pool was recognized with the 2018 Monument Prize for Flanders and is open 7 days per week with entry at a somewhat minimal fee • • Know more?

_________________________ Bar Luce | Milan, Italy | c. 2015 • • Bar Luce is a coffee shop-cocktail bar inside the recently opened Fondazione Prada in Milan, a multidisciplinary arts space and showcase for the fashion house • • While the Fondazione was transformed from its roots as a former distillery dating back to the 1910s by Dutch industrial architect Rem Koolhaasis, it’s predominantly grey and minimal characteristics are in stark contrast to the mix of baby pink and pastel green found inside Bar Luce – exuding a 1950s feel, and recreating the atmosphere of a typical Milanese cafè • • Designed by Wes Anderson himself, while his movies often favor symmetrical tableaux, he feels that “there is no ideal angle for this space. It is for real life, and ought to have numerous good spots for eating, drinking, talking, reading, etc. While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in” • • Some architectural and decorative details from the original structure have been preserved, such as the arched ceiling, which recreates a ‘miniature’ version of the vaulted glass roof of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, one of Milan’s symbolic buildings. Other key elements of the Galleria are replicated inside, creating a sort of patterned decoration for the top half of the bar • • The bar can be accessed directly from Via Orobia and is meant to be a hotspot for the general public, as well as a regular neighborhood hangout • • • ?***While Bar Luce is far from accidental, I felt it was fitting considering the historical background of the location, the fact that this is the only place in the world designed by Wes Anderson himself, and that this is one of the three places on Prada’s scavenger hunt for their Menswear Show today, so if you are in Milan, now you know where to go ? • • Know more?

_________________________ Central Post Office | Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam | c. 1891 • • Saigon Central Post Office is located in downtown Ho Chi Minh City, near Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica, the city’s cathedral. Constructed between 1886-1891 when Vietnam was part of French Indochina in the late 19th century, it reflects Gothic, Renaissance and French influences • • While the structure was designed by Alfred Foulhoux, it is often erroneously credited as being the work of Gustave Eiffel – who designed the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty – or a collaboration between Foulhoux and Auguste Henri Vildieu • • The building is large and spacious with metal arches on the ceiling, an enormous portrait of Ho Chi Minh, and wooden countertops along the sides resembling more of a national museum or major train station than a post office • • The floors are tiled and walls adorned with two large painted maps of French Indochina: the “telegraphic lines of South Vietnam & Cambodia” from 1892 and “Saigon and its Surroundings” from 1936. Telephone booths – still in working order – also line the walls • • While the post office is a tourist destination with souvenir shops, it still remains operating as it was originally intended with desks for writing postcards and areas for buying stamps and sending packages • • Know more?

_________________________ Muttern 12 | Stockholm, Sweden | c. 1914 • • Muttern 12 is a classic example of Swedish national romantic building/block that was built between 1913 – 1914 in the Hornstull area of Stockholm, Sweden • • Operating primarily as a residential building with a few commercial shops on street level, the structure was designed by Swedish architect Ivar Engström and built under surveillance of building contractor C. A. Schönander • • In the time this was built, the forms and shapes of Art Nouveau were gradually considered artificial, and replaced by a genuine and honest architecture founded in older Swedish building tradition • • The national romantic style is characterized by dominant, closed facades of bricks or bricks with high tiles, to tie the walls to the buildings from the 14th and 15th century Vasa Dynasty in Sweden • • This style is apparent in Muttern 12, especially on the ground floor where raw bricks are visibile. Overall, the national romantic architecture was inspired by Gamla stan (Stockholm’s Old Town), Visby and Vasa castles • • Since 1980 the building has been operated by the housing cooperative Spettet • • Know more?

_________________________ Jose Ignacio Light | José Ignacio, Uruguay | c. 1877 • • The José Ignacio Lighthouse was inaugurated in 1877 with the aim of avoiding shipwrecks in the area. The company Costa y Cía was in charge of operating the light until in 1907 when the contract ended and responsibility went to the State. At that time the only way to access the place was on horseback, in carriages, or by sea • • In 1907 the surveyor Eugenio Saiz Martínez established the first official plot of land in the area, however, it was not until the late 1920s that the first houses and the first grocery story were built • • A road was built linking the town with Route 9 in 1954, and the first bus service to San Carlos began to operate. Argentine vacationers began arriving in the 1960s and over time the town has become the place chosen by many celebrities to build their holiday homes, which also led to the establishment of exclusive restaurants • • There are several versions about the origin of the town’s name, one is that it comes from an old resident of the area, called José Ignacio Sylveira. Another version is that it refers to the name of an Indian slaughterer or troop of the Jesuit Missions. In 1763, Virrey Cevallos created a stay in the area, where the lands belonged to the fiscal patrimony and he called it “José Ignacio” • • The Lighthouse of José Ignacio is a symbol of the area, it was built on the most salient and rocky end of the peninsula with a focal height of 32.5 meters and a geographical range of 16.5 miles • • Know more?

_________________________ Tullgarn Palace | Vagnhärad, Sweden | 1727 • • The Tullgarn Palace (Swedish: Tullgarns slott) is a royal summer palace in the province of Södermanland, south of Stockholm, Sweden that dates back to the early 1700s. It’s interior design is regarded as one of the finest in the country • • Since it was popular among Swedish royalty, the palace has many interiors designed from different epochs and personal styles, such as the breakfast room in southern German Renaissance style from the 1890s and Gustav V’s cigar room, which has remained largely untouched since his death in 1950 • • It was acquired by the crown and became a royal residence in 1772. Frederick Adolf modernized the palace in neo-classical style, adding another story to the wings, giving the palace a flat Italian-style roof – His interiors are some of the finest examples of Gustavian style in Sweden • • After his death, it was granted to Frederick’s sister, Princess Sophia Albertina, who spent all her summers her until her death in 1829, when it was then granted to the heir to the throne, the future Oscar I of Sweden • • King Gustaf V (then Crown Prince) took over Tullgarn in 1881 and together with his consort Victoria, implemented extensive changes. The main building was decorated more like a modern functional summer home then a royal pleasure palace • • Much of the present interior dates from the time of King Gustav V and Queen Viktoria, including the vestibule, whose walls are covered in hand-painted Dutch tiles • • Know more?
