Marc Wilson photographs remnants of war in The Last Stand Photo essay: British photographer Marc Wilson has spent four years documenting the physical traces of the second world war on the coastlines of the British Isles and northern Europe (+ slideshow). In his book, entitled The Last Stand, Wilson presents 86 photographs taken between 2010 and 2014 that show how military ruins have become embedded into the landscape, yet still serve as relics of historic events. "Some of these locations are no longer in sight, either subsumed or submerged by the changing sands and waters or by more human intervention. At the same time others have re-emerged from their shrouds," said the photographer. Wilson travelled 23,000 miles to capture these images, including along the coastlines of the UK, the Channel Islands, France, Denmark, Belgium and Norway. War is a brute, and its brutality unleashes energies that are at once startling and terrifying.

MUSEUM OF POLISH HISTORY - IwamotoScott MUSEUM OF POLISH HISTORY International Open Design Competition, Warsaw, Poland, 2009.

A key challenge of the architecture of the Museum is to look forward and to acknowledge history as a dynamic, ongoing process, while also adapting to the richness, complexity and specificity of the project site.
The Tiny Tweak That Makes Fitness Fun, Effective, and Easy to Stick With Forever “I practice yoga.” As a personal trainer, I hear people express (or accept) this popular concept without a second thought. But if you said “I practice working out,” people would be very confused. There is something about yoga that allows us to approach it as a lifelong practice; we somehow know we can continue to improve ourselves through yoga forever, without reaching an end or conclusion. I think this has something to do with yoga’s origins in Eastern traditions. life as a moodboard: Varming House by Eva and Nils Koppel I first saw the Varming House on a Danish TV program about "Unique Nordic Houses" (that's the name of the program in Danish - "Enestående Nordiske Huse") and felt drawn to it immediately. Maybe because it reminded me so much of the best architecture that was also being done in Portugal in the mid-century (the name Fernando Távora and his house in Ofir came to my mind). I then decided to go on the internet and try to find some more information about this house. The Varming house was designed by the Danish architects Eva and Nils Koppel in 1952. I see it as one of those "little pearls" of architecture that came after the most radical phase of the Modern Movement, when, in a period of doubt, reflection and critic about a "universal model", architects all over Europe began searching for a harmonious coexistence of the most fundamental values of modernism and vernacular, while simultaneously, considering the new notions of family and dwelling.
