“Tryk her for drama mellem husene”
I bedste tænd-for-blender-med-guldfisk stil satte den belgiske HQ tv-kanalen TNT en rød ‘event’ knap op på en typisk plads i en typisk lille by – hvor intet nogensinde sker – og inviterede byens borgere til at trykke hvis de ville have lidt liv i gaden. Jeg har ikke fundet et link til hvor man kan købe sådan en knap, men jeg vil gerne have et parti hjem til opsætning rundt om i det pæne pæne DK.

Jon Duenas is a Portland, Oregon based photographer who’s got a series of double exposed images which I’ve fallen in love with. It’s amazing how these images lay over one another, the details of nature blooming through portraits of young women. The first image looks alien, like a sentient plant taking the form of a human. My other favorites are the second and fourth images. The way the city lays over the face of the girl in the fourth image, the expression on her face, the sense of drama and panic in her hands. In my opinion it’s the best of the bunch. It seems like he does wedding photography to pay the bills, but it would be great to see him do a larger series of these images, don’t you think?

House with Slide is a minimalist and fun project developed by LEVEL Architects who thought primarily of the children during its design. This three floor residence is situated in Tokyo and its main characteristic is a continuous circulation route with stairs in one side and a slide in the other side to connect the different floors with access points throughout.
The other notable characteristic is the large empty rooms to allow the children lots of clear space to play and enjoy without too many elements, avoiding any potential danger for the them. For this reason, many of the shapes of the house also are rounded.
No doubt, I really enjoy the result of this original, well considered and bright project.

Brett Beyer, photographe d’architecture a été commissionné par l’Université Cornell, aux Etats-Unis, pour photographier l’intérieur de la salle Milstein. L’objectif, obtenir une photo d’intérieure un peu différente, avec cette fois-ci une vue de dessus.

Last night, photographer Phil McGrew took this amazing photo of lightning striking the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. The guy clearly has an amazing sense of timing, even if he did use a 20 second exposure to capture the photo. Personally I think this photo from Neven Mrgan was better.

I’m really digging this short animation from Ion Lucin, a Bilbao, SPain based designer and motion graphics guy. He’s taken a simple sphere and pushed it to the graphical limits, shifting and morphing it in all kinds of interesting ways. In his own words:
This is a small animation a did as an exercise to experiment and explore all the graphical possibilities of representing the idea of the SPHERE, always thinking in searching Gestalt and form. Its all done in 3d, but i was more interested in the graphical interest, flatten the surfaces, and only two colors, why more.The most difficult was to achieve the transitions between the different type of representation of the sphere, the morphing and metamorphosing.

Turning the normally invisible world into something we can see is an interesting challenge, but Daniel Palacios has done exactly that in his piece, Waves. Made of only two motors and a piece of string, Waves is a simple idea executed beautifully. As Daniel describes it:
Tangibly, the installation is made up of two turbines, supported by a tuning fork structure between which the waves are created. Nonetheless, it is the intangible, the process created there, which provides sense to the space it occupies and establishes a relationship with the public, who begin to discover that their movements have an influence on the space, sound, and alternate states of great agitation with others when they stop to see how the wave disappears in space like a whistle in the wind.
So it’s not only a pleasure to view, but it also repsonds to your physical presence. It’s always the simplest projects that seem to make the biggest impression. I really wish I could have seen this in person. To see more photos of the project click here.

Created in a collaborative effort by students of the ETH and the AA, this temporary timber construction was designed to provide shelter from the sun. It was installed at the grand stairs in front of the architecture department of the ETH in Zurich. The initial idea was found in a winning entry of an internal competition within EmTech (Emergent Technologies and Design program) of the AA. Its dynamic form is derived from a series of studies of tension diagrams and load distribution, conducted at the ETH.
The arched form of the pavilion is inspired by Alvar Aalto’s and Charles Eames’s experiments in plywood bending and cutting in order to achieve curvature. Based on bending behavior under the self-weight of over-sized sheets of plywood of up to 11 x 2.5 m, the design activates the material properties as the defining element in the transfer of forces. The composite material made of layers enables manipulation, which is also aided by the fibrous structure of the ply. The timber sheets are cut in order to influence the bending resistance of the material and enable the increase in span. The complete structure is conceived as a larger assembly of interlocking elements. The vaults are self-stabilizing and cross-braced by a sequence of cables, reducing additional deformation of the structure.
