Crown Metropol Hotel
Dark aluminium fins on the facade of the Crown Metropol Hotel in Melbourne, Australia play a vital but subtle role in giving a sense of excitement to a building that has to fit in a complex environment and also help define that environment. The sinuous 28-storey hotel is one of three on the city’s relatively new Crown Entertainment Complex. Sitting to one side of the complex, and linking to the entertainment facility and also to a congress centre, on one side it overlooks a relatively rundown area of small industry, ripe for regeneration.

Steel Hall In Heddesheim
There can be few more colourful buildings than the factory building that Helwig & Helwig Architekten has designed in Heddesheim, Germany. Its client is a digital printing company which is known for the strong and durable colours it employs in the prints that it transfers onto items such as T-shirts , so it made sense to reflect this in the design of the building.
