From a concrete box house and animated GIFs to the photographs of Ricardo Bofill’s La Muralla Roja housing project in Spain and Marble’s win at the Loeries, these are the VISI team’s top picks of the week.

1. Concrete Box House

“This concrete house, located on South Korea’s largest island of Jeju, was designed by architect Moon Hoon,” says Online Editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. “The structure uses concrete beams to reinforce the design, which is made up of a series of stacked boxes. I love it!”

2. New Jean de Wet 50ty/50ty Print

“This urban jungle-themed work, titled Vestibule Ruins, by Cape Town-based artist Jean de Wet is a stunning example of the work created by this talented illustrator,” says Managing Editor Samantha Charles. “This is his first artwork, a limited run of 50 prints, for Black River Studio’s 50ty/50ty platform.”

3. Ricardo Bofill’s Red Wall

“The Red Wall (La Muralla Roja) is a housing project in Spain designed by architect Ricardo Bofill,” says Content Producer Mary Garner. “What I really love is the way in which the striking buildings have been captured by photographer Gregori Civera, who worked with Ricardo’s son Pablo Bofill to document Ricardo’s work.”
