Shaw, Jeffrey: Corpocinema Jeffrey Shaw«Corpocinema» «This was an expanded cinema performance presented in a series of open-air performances in Rotterdam and Amsterdam in 1967. The basic structure was a large air-inflated transparent PVC dome onto which film and slides were projected from outside.These projections were made visible by physical events and performed actions that created temporary conditions materializing the projected imagery within and on the surface of the dome.

Inhabited sculpture This article was originally published in Domus 966 / February 2013 Recently, Belgian postwar modernism has repeatedly been explored on an international scale. It was the subject of several articles published in specialised journals, and the public has been exposed through exhibitions and monographs to the work of Belgian architects who were previously unknown outside their national borders. Although this country and its people are rarely brought up in the context of architecture or design, the 1950s and '60s represent the extraordinary growth of applied art in Belgium. At that time, design and architecture found widespread application across the entire society, and architects found great potential to experiment with radical modernist ideals in the mass production of housing developments and villa neighbourhoods. Meanwhile, many other artists dedicated their entire careers to the pursuit of a clean form of modernism, used to create unexpected architectural spaces.

15 Tiny Houses To Simplify Your Life They say bigger is better. While that might be true for some aspects of life, when it comes to houses, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Tiny houses have literally taken over these past few years, and the “trend” shows no signs of slowing down. That’s not to say we don’t love ourselves some over-sized bachelor pads nestled within the hills of Hollywood, but there’s a lot to be said about tiny houses. In a world where real estate prices appreciate at a much faster rate than income earned, people are looking to take matters into their own hands. The end result is a tiny house that more times than not can be relocated to practically any location on the planet, utilizes much less resources, and really helps you simplify your life.

The Alter Bahnhof Video Walk Production Manager Christoph Platz Production Annika Rixen Zev Tiefenbach Offices Osakidetza, coll-barreu arquitectos The river of Bilbao is not the only area where urban renewal is taking place. In the center of the old town, the Basque Government has commissioned the young Basque architect Juan Coll-Barreu to design a 'vital' building, dominantly present on the corner of Calle Licenciado Poza with La Alameda de Rekalde. The works of this architect are characterized by their adaptive nature, like a glove fits to a hand. All conditions and circumstances are taken into account: first the urban context, the client's wishes, the functions of the building, the climate, and finally the project itself. After winning the design competition, this was the first project for him in a complex urban situation: 'In this design process, everything was a challenge'.

NASA's Warp Drive Project: "Speeds" That Could Take a Spacecraft to Alpha Centauri in Two Weeks Even Though the System is 4.3 Light-Years Away (Before It's News) NASA’s Warp Drive Project: “Speeds” that Could Take a Spacecraft to Alpha Centauri in Two Weeks — Even Though the System is 4.3 Light-Years Away. A few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive. His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating Einstein’s law of relativity. The above image of a Vulcan command ship features a warp engine similar to an Alcubierre Drive.

Maiko Takeda - About Logic + geometry + space form the common denominator in all Maiko Takeda pieces. It’s a world in which the simple will seem complicated and order turns to chaos.
