"FOUND is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.  We hope to bring new life to these images by sharing them with audiences far and wide. Their beauty has been lost to the outside world for years and many of the images are missing their original date or location."

Google Docs & Research: How-To? | Art Education, painting, drawing | Scoop.it

When students are doing research, they sometimes struggle with citing their sources or moving beyond a quick search with Google.com. The Google Docs Research Pane helps to facilitate searching for and citing sources. By going to Tools –> Research, the Research Pane pops up on the right hand side! You can search Google, images, scholar, quotes, and dictionary! By dragging and dropping certain content (e.g. images), not only will the material appear, but a footnote (in MLA, Chicago, or APA format).

Istanbul's New Telecommunication Tower Is Sculpted By The Wind

Istanbul's New Telecommunication Tower Is Sculpted By The Wind | Art Education, painting, drawing | Scoop.it

The new design for a telecommunication tower in Istanbul by RTA office is conceptually based on the way the designers understand the site and geography. Therefore their proposal comes as a response to this very specific and strategically important point which bridges the gap between Europe and Asia, merging cultures and continents.

 

The shape to the tower is given by the sum of flexible threads that adapt to the body. As the shape varies so does the floor plan which allows different functions.  Regarding the energy sources, the tower uses wind power, while it also resembles an element that had been shaped by the wind. The texture of the tower changes in perception as the visitor is approaching the object –from solid it transforms into a mesh.

La nueva torre de comunicaciones de Estambul. De nuevo puente entre oriente y occidente. Una serie de hilos que se daptan al cuerpo principal de la torre y que hacen que la torre se convierta en una malla según te acercas. Poca resistencia al viento y referencia a las cúpulas-bulbo de toda la iconografía oriental.

Entire Neighborhood Transformed Into A Giant Street Art Project

Entire Neighborhood Transformed Into A Giant Street Art Project | Art Education, painting, drawing | Scoop.it

After decades of being ignored and slowly sliding into disrepair, Wynwood as neighbourhood Miami was fast becoming a forgotten part of the city itself. But thankfully,  urban visionary Tony Goldman partnered with Jeffrey Deitch (director of  MoCa Los Angeles) on a mission to change and transform Wynwood from a dour community, to one covered in vibrant and inspiring art.

Abandonded parking lots, derelict street corners & rundown factories were handed over to the likes of some of the most innovative street artists in recent times - Futura, Shepard Fairey, OS Gemeos, Kenny Scharf, to work their magic. Funded and supported by local art grants and sponsors, their street art and murals now cover countless buildings and areas with Wynwood injecting a much-needed burst of life into what was a silent and forlorn part of Miami. In doing so they’ve created an area where art is accessible and open for everyone to enjoy and appreciate – as it should be...

WELCOME TO SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE + GREEN BUILDING

WELCOME TO SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE + GREEN BUILDING | Art Education, painting, drawing | Scoop.it
Using salvaged stuff not only has a positive environmental impact by reducing waste, it also offers architects materials typically unavailable.

According to the National Association of Homebuilders, “If all the lumber used to build the 1.2 million new homes constructed in the U.S. each year were laid end to end, it would extend 2 million miles—a sobering statistic.

Dutifully sorting waste, separating the metal and plastic from the paper for different recycling streams is part of modern life. Some areas even have food waste collection for community compost.

Architects and designers are taking notice of the opportunities offered by recycling and reuse. Using salvaged materials not only has a positive environmental impact by reducing waste, it also offers architects materials typically unavailable, such as old growth lumber.

Visit the link for some prescient products and projects using recycled materials for architectural purposes.

" The Smithsonian Magazine recently dipped into David Rumsey's collection of over 150,000 maps to find some of the best representations of American cities over the past couple hundred years. With some simple programming, they were able to overlay images of vintage maps of some major cities onto satellite images from today. The results are fascinating."

Sid McIntyre-DeLaMelena's curator insight, May 29, 11:56 AM

The Smithsonian Magazine overlayed maps of American cities for the past centuries with modern satellite images to show differences in the development and planning and the growth of the cities.

The growth and change of the cities changed over the years on how it was achieved and how far it could be expanded due to new technology and movement of people to urban areas. The technology helped achieved a certain hold over the environment to build more urban spaces.
