WHITE Installation: The Biggest Comfortable Hammock A group of architecture students in California used 7432-sq-m of plastic sheeting to create a massive, malleable and climbable installation to fill a gallery space. The WHITE project was realized collaboratively by 20 students at the California Polytechnic State University, who fabricated and installed it in just five days.

See-Through, Touch-Screen Tablet Renders Interiors in 3D It has taken from hundreds to thousands of years for architects and designers to perfect the art of translating from two-dimensional images to the three-dimensional world and back again. Augmented-reality technologies like this, however, promise new quantum leaps in matters of months. A see-through touch screen will allow users of the (still pre-production) IRIS Tablet to overlay physical spaces with digital renderings ranging from plans and sections to highlighted perspectives, all paired for easy identification of locations and angles in multiple dimensions. A combination of geo-positioning and pattern recognition help the device recognize its own stance within a structure, projecting too-be-added components onto the screen for an up-close-and-personal look at proposed renovations and additions.

The experience of homes is all about the interior, yet most architectural models depict primarily (or exclusively) the exterior. Commissioned and published by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, this book shares its stories in empty voids rather than words or ink. Edge-bound, laser-sliced white pages crisply depict a series of sections spanning from wall to wall (and trim to trim) through the artist’s home, showing details without just omitting words but also in the absence of tone or color (relying on depth, light and shadow instead). Like a classic children’s popup book, the result is interactive and engaging, and shows a side rarely seen in single drawings, renderings or physically-modeled spaces.

When you head into the wild, privacy may be of little concern as you progress further from the beaten path – views to and connections with nature may, instead, become a higher priority. Hence, the spherical BubbleTree tent with 360-degree lines of sight. The basic design comes complete with portable wardrobes, sofas, roll-out beds and even optional electricity for lighting.

Smart Energy, an energy drink produced by Spring Valley, is being promoted as the source of good energy with “Junk Ballet”, a commercial featuring a zoetrope made out of junk. The campaign is linked with an online interactive site, Makes Good Energy Totem. Most energy drinks focus on negative behaviour – partying, extreme cliff jumping, etc. Smart Energy in Junk Ballet
There is a brief head-scratching moment when one first sees these strange wooden rugs and has to wonder: is that mobile, functional, art or all of the above? These are precisely the design questions Elisa Stroyzk wants more people to ask. These wood carpets work at a weird intersection between art and design – grafted, geometric, laser-cut wood leftovers are attached to a functional and flexible textile background. Wood Textiles? Creative-but-Confusing Wooden Carpets
Radical Redesigns: Bridge-to-Home Building Conversions Everyone claims they want a house on the water, but few get to experience that desired proximity quite so directly. Large and small, old and new, there are many amazing dwellings built on aged bridges or designed to be a bridge from the day they are constructed – in short, there are many people in the world who get to actually live on bridges. The above Kraemerbrucke in Germany and Ponte Vecchio in Italy both have long and rich histories as bridges, inhabited and otherwise.
Yarn tells two kinds of tales: narratives are said to be weaved or spun as yarns, but there is a more literal meaning we also know. This curious street art project spans both definitions, creating small stories while infilling physical gaps in urban fabric. Juliana Santacruz Herrera began this beautification project in Paris, selectively decorating cracked and broken parts of the pavement with stretched yarn in a rainbow of colors. There is an almost-organic nature to the strange formations of string that result, as if they had crawled, intertwined and nested of their own will in a mysteriously self-selecting manner. Whether it is pure fun or functional is up for debate, though, arguably, Parisian drives could find these voids less destructive with a little padding, or perhaps simply avoid them now that they are so much easier to see.

Over a quarter of a century ago, an architect stumbled upon the half-ruined remains of an old cement factory. The grounds contained dozens of silos, vast subterranean spaces and long-silent manufacturing equipment. Decades later, the results of his ongoing renovation project are beyond remarkable.? 25-Year Refab: Concrete Factory Converted to Castle Home
Hidden inside a steel cargo container, rusted from a life of shipping at sea, lies a secret luxury home layout that unfolds at the push of a button – opening like an ocean clam to reveal a fully-furnished set of floor plans – as precious and surprising as a perfect pearl. The flip-open mini-house designed by Adam Kalkin is illuminated from a suspended chandelier and set of built-in table lamps. These lights turn on remotely as the project is opened up (via hidden hydraulics) to reveal a series of semi-divided spaces unlike any residential plan you have ever seen – an open layout that amounts to a combined set of living, lounging, library, dining, sitting and sleeping areas. One of the containers’ side panels becomes a platform for a kind of floating bedroom-and-bathroom combination complete with a bed, headboard, bench, sink and toilet. Another storage wall slides into place and features a leather couch, side tables and lighting. Steel Hide-a-House: Secret Storage Container Home Plans
