A fair few articles last year were based around imaging future shapes for car dealerships, and the consequent changes these adjustments might bring to the experience the real estate might provide. All the posts (I think) were predicated on keeping the cars. But what might happen to the places we’re building should the current usage […]
Prompted by an article forwarded to me today, in Autocar, where BMW were reported as speculating (as always) on the future shape (and even future of) the car dealership, I remembered the day before news about Shanghai studio Neri&Hu’s project, converting an old missile factory in Beijing into an office… …and car repair garage. The Garage […]
…is that a new Mac? Those canny people at TwelveSouth have Christmas on lock – a scented candle that smells of new Mac’s. For real – here’s the tech-spec: Hand Poured, 100% Soy Wax Scent Notes: Mint, Peach, Basil, Lavender, Mandarin and Sage 9 oz. pour offering a burn time of 45-55 hours and it […]
Maybe not, but what a thing… check out the video! Richard Clarkson has created a small remote-controlled cloud for the home that plays music and flashes while hovering a few centimetres from the ground. It’s apparently made from “white polyester fibres, the cloud and its base are embedded with magnetic components that allow it to […]
From Brazil, the bike-based projectionists who bring their super-high lumen light shows to life by treating entire landscapes as a canvas. The time-lapsed results are pretty marvelous. Using long exposure photographs, we created short videos of stop motion combining traditional animation, technology and nature. We spent long nights capturing each scene. Read all about vjsuave […]
Spotted these via Dezeen, “a playful survey of private residential projects by Mobile Studio Architects over the past five years” and they’re quite superb. The proposals are all handmade at 1:100 scale, elevated above a highly stylised map of London narrated via a series of annotations. Each project tells a personal story by pointing out […]
So, perhaps not exactly hot off the press, but having dropped by the Hyundai store at Stratford’s Westfield complex (worth a visit in it’s own right), here’s the thing. It really isn’t any surprise that the place is doing as well as reported, given the simplicity of what it delivers – a straightforward and strikingly […]
An installation at Schule von Freiburg, titled ‘Installationsansicht 2’, uses gels that appear to flood the floors at this exhibition, transforming the spaces into a series rather wonderful water colours (reminding me a little of Paul Klee): 1930 X.7. Ruhendes- Paul Klee The use of the reflective materials seem to create dissolves between rooms, making […]
Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s latest installation, a shimmering yellow fabric installed on Italy’s Lake Iseo, is just magical. The pictures (Filippo Venezia/AP) are spectacular, almost as if a golden digital map has been overlain onto Google Earth. Spotted in The Guardian.
Stumbled on the work of Daniel Barreto and his stop-motion film Ignite, “an experimental short film animation that was made with hundreds of long exposure photographs, just as a timelapse or stopmotion.” Watch it here, it’s really neat.
