The urban artist's careful pruning gave a vagrant patch of vines a new circular shape, turning the site into a living artwork that locals now take pride in preserving. SpY’s gorgeous living artwork is made from strands of leafy vines that once reached upward toward the sun in unkempt spurts. Seeing these wild vines as a canvas, SpY hired a cherry picker manlift and started to carve a circular shape into the far reaches of the overgrowth. Careful to maintain the main branches, he slowing trimmed away the wild vines to form a perfect circle.

Movie interview with Sandeep Khosla on DPS Kindergarten School Movie: Indian architect Sandeep Khosla explains the importance of outdoor learning at DPS Kindergarten School in Bangalore, India, which won the education category at last month's Inside Festival in Singapore. DPS Kindergarten School by Khosla Associates is a prototype for a series of school buildings to be rolled out across southern India. "The brief was to really create a typology that could be repeated and adapted to further schools in the region," says Khosla. "We used exposed concrete as the starting point and we created a very modular system that can be expanded vertically as well as horizontally. So the inside of the classrooms are basically the stripped-down materials of the architecture." The 25 classrooms feature brightly-coloured walls made of corrugated metal sheets and perforated terracotta screens for ventilation.

Secret Passage Bookshelves If there’s one dream that unites all bookish folks (aside from, you know, universal literacy) it’s the dream of having a secret passageway hidden behind a bookcase. Ok, maybe it just unites some of us- but there’s no denying that there’s something super-nifty about having a bookcase that moves to reveal a space only you know about. You and your builder. Anywoot!
