Pixelnotes Wallpaper Makes Office Fashion Meet Function

Pixel-patterned Wallpaper showed up, followed by a Colorful Pixelated Couch and Pixel Drink Coasters. We love all of those for their creative use of taking what seems like technological trash and turning it into a beautiful pattern that can stand on it's own. This Pixelnotes wallpaper gets extra props for being able to not only decorate an office, but also act as office supplies—and customizable artwork if you use it right.

Inside Installations by Joris De Schepper and Thomas De Ridder

A part of a series called Inside Installations, it focuses on what happens behind the scenes of an exhibition and the archiving process. Located in a large open space in the museum, a plywood box has been built in the corner and is surrounded by shelving units used to display some of the equipment that's required to prepare an exhibition. The walls, ceiling and floor inside the wooden structure are covered with documents, photos, sketches and manuals relating to other installations being shown at the museum.

UCLA research lab unveils tiny house to combat housing crisis

Encompassing 500 square feet (46 square metres), the Backyard BI(h)OME is designed to contain a bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen and dining room. The small property is intended to be erected in a homeowner's backyard, where it can be rented out or occupied by relatives. "The low-cost, low-impact BI(h)OME could serve as housing for an elderly parent, a returning college graduate, or a rental unit," said the school. "Rather than requiring a mortgage, it could be leased, like a car, so it is semi-permanent, can flexibly serve the needs of homeowners for as long as they want, and then be recycled or reinstalled.

A bath, floor-to-ceiling storage and space for exercise are included in the compact flat, located in Taipei City, where property prices are driving young buyers into smaller homes. A Little Design described the client as a young woman who travels frequently for work, and when she gets home "all she needs is a hot bath and a good sleep". As such, the team designed a fully equipped bathroom, replacing the former shower with a full bath and moving the washing machine to the kitchen, which has more limited function.

Storage spans one entire wall of the living room, covering the 3.3 metres from floor to ceiling. The storage features wardrobes on the bottom and square shelves on top, allowing the resident to access the clothes she needs easily every day, while using a ladder on the occasions she needs her books and other objects.

The projects are proposed by architecture students Jon Leung, Lorna Jackson and Tobias Power for Burning Man, an annual summer festival held in a five-square-mile patch of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The three students are part of a collective called We Want to Learn at the University of Westminster in London. The group is led by tutors Toby Burgess and Arthur Mamou-Maniat and has a particular focus on parametrics – a type of design based on algorithms. Themed installations are constructed around the camp and festival site each year. The title of the 2015 event is Carnival of mirrors, which inspired this trio of maze-like and inhabitable sculptures.
