Digital Number Puzzle There are so many digital number displays blinking and glowing in our environment, once children start learning the numbers, they will find these digital numbers around them, looking a bit different from the printed ones, intriguing. We also like the utilitarian look of the digital segment fonts, so this will make both a fun number activity for kids and a cool display for kids wall art! This digital number puzzle comes with one large number template for the board, and a complete 0 to 9 digital number cards set to use alongside.
New exhibition showcases the work of Swiss architect Gion A Caminada The timber and stone buildings of Gion A Caminada, a cult figure in Swiss architecture, will feature in an exhibition opening next month at the House of Art in the Czech city of České Budějovice (+ slideshow). Hailing from Graubünden, the same Swiss canton as fellow architect Peter Zumthor, Gion A Caminada has built little outside of his native region and instead focussed much of his life's work on the village of Vrin, where he established his studio in the late 1970s. Both the population and the economy of the village were in serious decline, so Caminada set about providing infrastructure that would help it to thrive again.

Panning: The Sexperience 1000 Welcome to The Sexperience 1000, an interactive journey through the sexual experiences and preferences of one thousand British individuals. What’s the favourite sexual position of iPhone users in the North? Do country music lovers over 55 prefer to do it in the dark? Ramus M1 Table/Desk by Design Studio Il Hoon Roh Ramus, latin for 'tree branch', combines the strengths of carbon fibre with the structural advantages that can be found in the branch of a tree. (Click the images below for full sized images) The Ramus M1 is a desk with a transparent glass top and a supporting structure underneath with tree-like limbs that support the top. Designer Il Hoon Roh claims the bifurcating structure maximises the table's structural capacity and strength. It's the latest development and creation in the designer's long-term study of efficient forms found in nature, a passion to design works with an architectural concept and "a natural method" that maximises a material's potential.

Hyperbolic Tiling in 3D - Look Think Make In a previous post I explained the shape of planes, spheres, and hyperbolic planes in terms of hexagons arranged around either another hexagon (plane), a pentagon (sphere) or a heptagon (hyperbolic plane). I used a photo of a hyperbolic plane someone else had made out of paper, as the 3D model produced by my scripted Sverchok node was not meshed in a nice regular tiling. I thought I'd fix this. The first step was to write a Sverchok node to make a Blender mesh of the regular tilings of the Poincaré disk. The Poincaré disk is a model of 2D hyperbolic geometry where the points on an infinite hyperbolic plane are mapped inside a planar disk of unit radius. In a plane or a sphere there are only a small number of regular polygons that can be used to tile the surface.
Photo Inspiration Who doesn’t love baby photography, One of the most challenging and time consuming type of photography. It is easily one of the hardest kinds just because of the sheer amount of unexpected drama with the kids. It is also one of the most popular kind of photography too. Dow Jones Architects — Prospect House © David Grandorge . Published on March 27, 2013. Prospect House is located on Sion Hill, overlooking Bath. The house faces south and is built into a steeply sloping site with amazing views. It was built in the mid 1980s and conformed to the genre of houses built in Bath at that time: reconstituted Bath stone blockwork walls, a concrete tiled roof with big eaves overhangs, Proprietary softwood windows, and was trapped stylistically somewhere between volume house building and a nod to Frank Lloyd Wright.

Volume 85 Issue 3 (May/June 2015) - Architectural Design Around the world, a new architectural form is emerging. In public places a progressive architecture is being commissioned to promote open-ended, undetermined, lightly programmed or un-programmed interactions between people. This new phenomenon of architectural form – Pavilions, Pop-Ups and Parasols – is presaged by rapidly changing social relationships flowing from social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The nexus between real and virtual meeting is effectively being reinvented by innovative and creative architectural practices.
Catmull–Clark subdivision surface Catmull–Clark subdivision surface You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know. Implement the Catmull-Clark surface subdivision (description on Wikipedia), which is an algorithm that maps from a surface (described as a set of points and a set of polygons with vertices at those points) to another more refined surface. The resulting surface will always consist of a mesh of quadrilaterals. The process for computing the new locations of the points works as follows when the surface is free of holes:
How to be a stylish designer. You don’t know how to dress. Fashion has no meaning to you, other than buying a pair of jeans every two years or so. You don’t get the point of wearing anything otther than black. And there you are, a designer. Which means, you SHOULD be well-dressed, stylish, arty, whatever adjectives that fit your fancy. Or at least, that what it means for a lot of people in the street.
