Favela Painting by Haas & Hahn Invited at the Shenzhen and Hong Kong Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture, the Dutch collective Haas & Hahn currently exhibits photographs of their Favela Painting Project. A program that, as the Wynwood Walls, aims to renovate disadvantaged neighborhoods with art. Launched n 2005, the idea first started at Vila Cruzeiro (Rio), before reaching other places such as Santa Maria, and mobilizes young people from these areas, combining education and employment while deeply transforming the favela. A civic-minded initiative you can support through the dedicated website.

Spine Danish design office, Kollision, who specialise in interaction design, recently introduced me to their truly remarkable kinetic media sculpture, Spine. Spine is an interactive installation based on twenty glowing cubes and an atmospheric sound composition. Each cube is moved precisely in fluid motions by two computer-controlled motors. The movements of the cubes as well as the sound composition react to nearby visitors by working together as one coherent expression in dialogue with the surroundings – a fifty meter long spine floating in space continually displaying new movements, light scenes and sounds. Spine was displayed between November 15th and December 15th 2012 at Godsbanen in Aarhus, Denmark, during the Media Architecture Biennale 2012. Did any of you see this in person?

AD Classics: Le Cylindre Sonore / Bernhard Leitner Architecture and Sound create spaces with changing flexible contours. They create invisible territories which by not being limited by physical boundaries increase their impact. Of course, one argues that architecture is visual and expresses the will to establish limits and boundaries. While these boundaries are elementary, they cannot convey the complete adventure of architecture. Through its very essence the inside formulates an outside. One Question You Should Ask Everyone You Meet Email by Bernadette Logue “It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.” –The Invitation by Oriah I want to know what your story is… 7 Billion Stories in the World
Clever and Funny Business Cards That Will Crack You Up Handing out a business card to a prospective customer is the subtlest promotional approach. Unlike other marketing methods, people accept business cards without any inhibitions. Therefore, it is only essential to have a card that will create valuable first impressions. People have come up with all sorts of expensive and bizarre die cut designs just to get attention. However, a card does not have to go beyond the rectangular design just to be memorable. Originality and a sense of humor usually gets a person noticed and remembered.
Flying Walls / ateliermob Children curiosity is the tool for a wider reflexion about different ways and velocities of interact and percept daily spaces, depending on our age, using one Portuguese traditional materiality applied to exterior doors to protect from sun and insects, usually rejected and depreciated by contemporary architecture. In the context of the Festival des Architectures Vives at Montpellier (18th-21st June), on the theme “Ephémères Curiosités”, ateliermob purposed to reinvent children’s universe on one antique mansion’s courtyard of Montpellier. An universe that can interact with children and provide them the sense of proportion and scale as long as the possibility to explore their curiosity, over and over, continuously searching for changes in the surrounding space through their own imagination.
