Well, Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus is at it again. This past June the group travelled to Australia to create a massive, traffic-stopping installation using thousands of glowing books scattered across Federation Square in Melbourne. Titled "Literature vs Traffic" the installation was created using books that had been collected by the Salvation Army after being discarded from public libraries. The project aimed to take control of public space and install itsel in the streets, stealing precious space from the dense traffic in the area.

‘Illoiha Omotesando,’ Climbing Wall by Nendo Nendo Designers Nendo have sent us some images of their climbing wal from the new Illoiha Omotesando club in Tokyo.They used mirrors, picture frames, a birdcage, and other items found on walls in a home re-purposed as climbing hand holds. They used mirrors, frames, birdcage, and other objects of decoration that can be found in a house instead of the usual rock-shaped holds. http://cubeme.com/blog/?s=Nendo To express the original brand concept of “becoming beautiful through movement”, we chose the theme “rock-climbing in Omotesando” and developed a design that uses the mismatch between a rugged outdoor sport and Tokyo’s fashion district to its advantage. Instead of the usual rough and outdoorsy climbing wall, we came up with the idea of using interior design elements like picture frames, mirrors, deer heads, bird cages and flower vases to create a challenging wall with hard-to-find holds and unusual finger grips.
Wild Reindeer Foundation, Oslo by SnÃ¸hetta The Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion built by SnÃ¸hetta Oslo AS is located at Hjerkinn on the outskirts of Dovrefjell National Park, overlooking the SnÃ¸hetta mountain massif. The main purpose of the 75m2 building is to provide shelter for school groups and visitors as mountain guides lecture about the unique wildlife and history of the Dovre Mountain plateau. A 1,5km nature path brings visitors to this spectacular site, 1200 meters above sea level. This unique natural, cultural and mythical landscape has formed the basis of the architectural idea.
