The original site, intended by me for part-time students and other interested parties was closed down by the University of Brighton in 2004. I was subsequently denied access to the original images most of which, however, were in my own collection. I have developed the site on a daily basis thereafter. It remains exclusively educational and is in constant use. Many thanks to those in the UK and beyond who shared my irritation at events. Wherever possible I have tried to get copyright permissions.

Vers le modernisme avec l’école Bauhaus: Le Bauhaus, célèbre école allemande qui a contribué de manière importante et influencée l’architecture moderne, l’industrie, les arts graphiques, design et théâtre. Mais un peu plus tard la politique de l’école va changé avec un nouveau slogan : “Art et technologie: une nouvelle unité.” Un changement que l’on doit à l’arrivée de la production en masse, avec elle une accélération de l’économie et de ses besoins de consommation.

So mee... the new shelton wet/dry Tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on { One man’s nearly three-decade quest to authenticate a potential Mark Rothko painting purchased at auction for $319.50 plus tax has turned up convincing evidence in the work’s favor, but the experts seem unlikely to issue a ruling. Rothko expert David Anfam, who published the artist’s catalogue raisonné in 1998, has been familiar with Himmelfarb’s painting since the late 1980s.

Lampe Vintage Toucan moderne / Pelican oiseaux par WestCoastModern Lobster, Tropical Fruits, Meyer Lemon, Heart of Palm I’ve been eyeing this dish since early December; the photos in the book are eye-poppingly vibrant, and several of the tropical fruits were familiar to me because of time in New Zealand. Appealing too was the bulk of the recipe, which is basically “Acquire exotic fruit, cut into interesting shapes.” As I sifted through the list of ingredients though, it became clearer that this dish represents a small and rare nexus in the cycle of globally-available produce, and getting the stars to align for this moment has taken some patience. On the plate, we have freshly-cooked lobster meat plated alongside small planks of papaya, ovals of sapote, and rings of heart of palm, all of which have been tossed in a sweet meyer lemon vinaigrette. The bites are topped with a ribbon of passion fruit ‘jam’, then garnished with dots of tamarillo pudding, coconut ribbons and dice, lemon balm leaves, thai chili rings, pineapple powder, kiwifruit slivers, and passion fruit seeds. the making of, the making of: movies, art, &c., by greg allen 100+ Box templates & tutorials (Gift/Card/Treat Boxes) Box round up!Hope this list of free box templates, tutorials, & inspirationfor boxes is useful to You.

Graham Foundation > Exhibitions > Environments and Counter Environments. "Italy: The New Domestic Landscape,” MoMA, 1972 This exhibition highlights the lasting significance of MoMA’s groundbreaking 1972 exhibition, Italy: The New Domestic Landscape and emphasizes both the dynamic context of radical Italian design and architecture in the 1970s, as well as the innovative exhibition that first presented this work in America. Curated by Emilio Ambasz in 1972, Italy: The New Domestic Landscape showcased the forefront of Italian design and commissioned a series of experimental domestic “environments” and attendant films by the most vibrant Italian architects and designers of the period: 9999, Archizoom, Gae Aulenti, Mario Bellini, Joe Colombo, Gruppo Strum, Ugo La Pietra, Gaetano Pesce, Alberto Rosselli, Ettore Sottsass Jr., Superstudio, and Zanuso/Sapper. Contrary to convention, the Objects were displayed in the natural setting of MoMA’s sculpture garden, while the Environments were shown within the institutional spaces of the museum’s galleries.
