A Chinese Fairy Tale // Photography

A great photo travel experience by Atelier Olschinsky in the beautiful landscapes of China. I am not able to pick one photo out of the collection as “ze best” but all together really push the whole “travelling without moving” idea.

 One of our favorite high.rollers in architecture has designed a chess set specially for Tifanny. not bad at all for Le.Frank!

“Frank Gehry has always been a lover of chess, but develop their creativity in just 258 cm2 is a very special challenge. The 32 pieces of the game are unique structures that can sometimes remind the Guggenheim Museum or its skyscraper at 8 Spruce Street in New York.

Gehry has said that what he likes most about his work is seen as “changing the architectural landscape” as the game unfolds. A real treat for fans of strategy games, available at Tiffany and Co. only request: from € 19,000.00″

The 1939 World’s Fair – Photo Collection

73 years ago today, the World’s Fair (1939 edition) had its grand opening with a whopping 206,000 people in attendance.

The theme that year was The World Of Tomorrow, and one of our favorite exhibits of the lot was the Westinghouse Time Capsule that was buried 50 feet below Flushing Meadows Park (there was also one buried for the 1965 fair). Both will be opened in the year 6939, unless someone finds and digs them up before then. In the 1939 capsule contained, amongst other things, copies of Life magazine, a kewpie doll, one dollar in change, a pack of Camel cigarettes, a 15-minute newsreel, and seeds in glass tubes.

“With thanks to Bill Hastings, some images from instructional books on perspective. 300 years on and people still persevere to find a scientific method of depicting space.”

Bad-taste Graphics FTW // Club Heat Von Cool

hello hello little troll followers.

another groundbreaking project for your eyes to feast on.Infinite skillz nurturing endless wisdom, pushing architectural expression to its boundaries.

andrew TÉTRAULT & federica von EUW from -the always sunny- Philadelphia have been kind enough to share another pearl with you, and og course suckerpunchdaily, known for its awesome scouting skills, had the balls to publish it…lolz (click hmuah to teleport to a super secret shadow server)

“Club Heat von Cool is an urban nightclub that was developed out of, and sought to become, a part of the intensive accumulation of atmospheres and scales present in one of the world’s most dynamic and culturally heterogeneous neighborhoods, Harajuku, Tokyo. The project became a morphology of varying systemic interiorities sequenced and transformed from the inside out to create a nightclub of sensations and effects.”

the FG team appreciates the effort guys, but just to let you know, you still have a long way to go before attaining Jorge-level Master Bullshitter..
