Buildings come in many different sizes, shapes, and uses, and we’ve gotten pretty good at building them over the years.

Architects don’t just make buildings that are strong and solid. They are naturally good at solving problems, so they usually try to make spaces that fit the time and the people who will use them. This is called “designing environments.”

And the Twitter account called “Unique Building” is a great place to see some of their most interesting work.

It always posts pictures that match its name, and even though the account was only created in March 2022, 160K people are already following it.

We (bored panda) talked to Adi Cohen, the founder of THE NEW MOVEMENT, to find out how to look at these pictures. “The New Movement” is an architecture studio that designs one-of-a-kind projects all over the world.

Cohen told Bored Panda that making a design is like telling someone to act in a certain way. Because of this, it’s important to know who will use the space in the future. What kinds of events and activities will happen in the space? What are the relationships and dynamics we want to create within the building and between the building and its surroundings?

Cohen said that after they answer the first questions, architects usually take some time to learn about the land, climate, and culture they will be working with.

For example, they need to think about whether the buildings will have access to things like wind and sun.

“The best design experience for me is a whole one that makes me feel things in different ways,” she said.

Cohen, who has also given a great TEDx talk on how to design freedom, said that a good architecture project starts with the big picture and stays consistent down to the smallest details. It’s never a copy-and-paste design; it’s always a story that fits the place, the people, and the site.

“Architecture tells a story; it pulls you in, makes you feel welcome, and gives you ideas. You can easily find your way around and use it. Yes, it is also very pretty. ” 
But architects have to deal with a lot of problems if they want to come up with the best results possible. They aren’t always ready for them right away, either.

Even though architecture schools and the academic world are full of passion and creativity, office life in most firms seems like a whole other world, Cohen said. “Architects often wonder what happened to the joy of making new and beautiful designs when they have to deal with technical drawings, building permits, and companies that are only interested in making money.”

Architects also can’t just show off their skills whenever they want. “Unlike other creative fields, architecture requires a lot of money to get started. “As an architect, you might find yourself waiting for the “perfect” client, project, and budget to feel happy,” Cohen said.

One of the reasons I sold everything I owned and bought a one-way ticket to Japan five years ago was because of this. I couldn’t see myself sitting at a desk for 10 hours a day for the rest of my life and making boring buildings. I knew that life and architecture must have more to offer.

But the art keeps getting better. Cohen said that remote work and the desire to have a better balance between work and life are also having an effect on this industry.

“There is a growing movement of people who want to live in line with their inner values and question the social scripts we all grew up with. This is part of the public’s interest in new priorities and life choices. I see more and more people selling their two-bedroom apartments in cities and moving to places where they can be closer to nature and feel more inspired, healthy, and free.

“We are moving away from the assembly line mentality and toward an economy based on talent and quality.” “What a time to be alive!” said the architect.

“It’s important to look closely at the places we choose to live in and how they affect our work, health, and happiness.”

“In the same way that we are busy “biohacking” our sleep and diet to get the most out of them, people are starting to realize how important the places they live, work, and connect with each other are.” 
As a side note, Cohen said that she had to question everything when she was looking for a new path for herself.

“That includes not only the ways we are expected to live our lives but also the way we build and the effect that cookie-cutter buildings and cities have on people. I’m sure that the real point of architecture is to make places where people can live well, places that are good for their minds, bodies, and souls. “Since the world changes quickly, the more we know about people, the better we can make things for them,” she said.
