Mapmaker Max Roberts ditches New Yorks linear grid for concentric circles in this new subway map.
A choice of subway map for the left brain and the right brain individual or the literal or the intuitive. Great idea.
"Architect Vincent Callebaut has unveiled ambitious plans to create an energy-producing community comprising 45 futuristic villas in the southwestern Chinese city of Kunming. Though likely to remain on the drawing board for the foreseeable future, the Flavours Orchard concept offers plenty of food for thought and some interesting renders to pore over."
Fascinating concept for a community to be built on reclaimed former industrial wasteland. There are three types of villa design envisioned for the settlement.
"Oregon boat builder Brian Schulz has turned his carpentry skills towards creating the Japanese Forest House – a 200 square foot (18.5 sqm) home built from predominantly reclaimed wood and salvaged materials. The tiny home took Schulz two years to complete, costing him just US$11,000 in materials."
Boat builder builds his own tiny home.
For the second time in what has been a frigid winter in the Northeastern United States, Niagara falls has come to an icy halt as the six million cubic feet of water that typically flow over the falls every minute has frozen over.
Nature as artist.
"Plans for London's proposed Garden Bridge are beginning to flourish following the recent confirmation that the UK government and Transport for London (TfL) will each commit £30 million (US$50 million) of funding to the project. Conceived by Joanna Lumley, designed by architect Thomas Heatherwick and to be planted by renowned horticulturist Dan Pearson, the bridge will provide a green public space and a link between the bohemian South Bank and lively Covent Garden."
This sounds like an absolutely fascinating project. It will be a pedestrian Garden Bridge over the Thames River. The architect is Thomas Heatherwick of the Seed Cathedral and the horticulturalist is Dan Pearson. The idea was conceived by Joanna Lumley.
The new campus of the WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) is a like a smorgasbord of 21st century architecture, with signature buildings by Zaha Hadid Hitoshi Abe and Estudio Carme Pinós, among others. But the world-class campus has equally high standards for energy efficiency and sustainability.
Though the buildings of the 100,000 square-meter (1 million sq-ft) campus were created by a roster of international talent, the master plan was conceived by the Viennese office of BUSarchitektur in partnership with BOA (büro für offensive aleatorik, or "Studio for Offensive Randomness"). BUS also designed the Teaching Center.
The school opened in October 2013 to 25,000 students and 1,500 faculty, but its green energy ethos was in place well beforehand, as work was carried out according to Guidelines for Sustainable Construction. These include environmentally-friendly logistics and the reduction of traffic, dust and pollution during building.

Glad to see that someone is keeping their heads about them when planning, designing and building a university campus. Bravo to WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business).
This strawberries and cream cake is perfect for Valentine's Day, decorated with tons of little conversation hearts! A fun project to do with kids!
I often don't know if I should consider creations like this works of art or food. I think I select both!
From a group of several hundred small businesses, a chart was created illustrating the degree to which each business followed the guidelines when face

From jet parts to unborn babies, icebergs to crime scenes, and houses to dolls: how new technology is shaking up making things. By Stuart Dredge
3D printing is a new and flashy technology. It has been proven to do some fantastic things like print limbs and body organs. Some things it can print are just for show. Time will tell how far this technology can go in both positive and not so positive ways.
Great boat art.

"Today’s Biz Ladies Profile comes to us from Alexia Klompje of Klomp Ceramics. After surviving a brain tumor, Alexia decided to pursue “gentler” work during her healing process. So she went back to her first love of ceramics and never looked back. Today she shares a bit about her journey into the creative realm and the ups and downs of owning a business. Thank you, Alexia, for sharing your amazing story with us!" –Stephanie
Ceramics is a wonderful pursuit. It is a favorite of mine using slab construction.
Last Sunday, Oscar host Ellen broke Twitter with the most epic of all selfies. The picture was retweeted more than 1.3 million times in less than an hour, breaking President Obama’s 2012 victory photo record.
Almost like a family photo shared 1.3 million times.
Say cheese and retweet!
Advertising disguised as an Oscar family photo.
"This quilt was made in tribute and honor of the New York Fire Department and 9/11. A percentage of this sale will be donated to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Please see it at http://www.etsy.com/shop/doodlebugsquilts"
This is a wonderful idea. I hope someone buys it.
"Every year, the best and the boldest of Hollywood are on display at the Academy Awards. The 85th Oscars, as in previous years, features a vast array of veteran and new talent. In this infographic, we can see just how nominations and awards stack up for this contending this year".
85 years of star studded talent and opulence.
While it's been widely known for at least a decade that Frank Gehry is the world's worst living architect, it's not entirely clear why some people—mostly very rich clients—haven't picked up on this yet. The utterly god awful and ridiculous Biomuseo in Panama, an eco-discovery center that cost at least $60 million and took a decade to construct, is only the most recent case in point.
FRANK GEHRY cannot be as bad as this article says. But perhaps he is, as an architect, as theatrical as the writer of this article in using such extravagant gestures.

If Carmen Miranda was upside down, this is what she would look like.
3D printing isn’t just for tiny trinkets. The 3D printed house will be printed on a 20-foot-tall printer and open to the public.
Two house scale 3D printers are being used for architecture. KamerMaker, in the Netherlands and Contour Crafting, out of the University of Southern California are creating homes using this cutting edge technology. It remains to be seen what the benefits are over traditional building methods.
3D printing is part of a technology that can create things from body organs to buildings and all kinds of thing in between. I am fascinated by it.
Our world is so full of wonders that new and amazing places are discovered every day, be that by professional photographers or amateurs.
