The Story of Flox Using the city as her canvas and stencils and spray paint as her tools, Flox quickly made her presence felt, transforming grey walls into oases of ferns and flowers. Flocks of her trademark native birds could be found flying across city streets, breathing life into the urban environment and creating joyous celebrations of natural New Zealand. Soon, the name Flox became synonymous with innovative works that bravely pushed the boundaries of graffiti art.

KITE & LASLETT - KITE & LASLETT Kite & Laslett is an interdisciplinary art practice based in London. The duo; Sebastian Kite and Will Laslett, trained in architecture and music, create experiential environments to choreograph the sensory engagement of people with architectural spaces. Conceptually, Kite & Laslett’s work is rooted in investigations into paradigms of perception and phenomenology. Their practice lies at the intersection of art and architecture, with a particular focus on site-specificity. Kite & Laslett’s installations use structure, kinetics, light, projection and sound as strategies to illustrate new readings of spaces. Inherent to their work is a passion for precision, technical efficiency, inventive materials and elegance.

Transcultural Practices in Architecture and Urbanism<img alt="" class="portrait" data-ratio="0.7085987261146497" src="/media/images/W1siZiIsIjU2OWNhZGEyYzc5ZWIzODVlZjAwMDAwNiJdLFsicCIsImNvbG9yc3BhY2UiXSxbInAiLCJ0aHVtYiIsIjEwMHgiXSxbImUiLCJqcGciLCItcXVhbGl0eSA3NSJdXQ?sha=27a12ad8" />This issue of OASE takes as its point of departure the cross-cultural conditions in which architects, urban designers and landscape architects work. It focuses in particular on architects working in a condition of displacement – in other words in relation to cultures, far away or nearby, that are not their own. <img class="landscape" data-ratio="1.4791231732776617" src="/media/images/W1siZiIsIjUzNjM2MzdkYzc5ZWIzMTY2YTAwMDAwNiJdLFsicCIsImNvbG9yc3BhY2UiXSxbInAiLCJ0aHVtYiIsIjEwMHgiXSxbImUiLCJqcGciLCItcXVhbGl0eSA3NSJdXQ?
Dynamic Mutations V3.0 – DesignMorphine DESCRIPTIONDynamic Mutations V3.0 is an international workshop of Advanced Design. The workshop will run using AutoDesk MAYA, Pixologic ZBRUSH, McNeel GRASSHOPPER 3D, and Epic Games UNREAL ENGINE 4. As we approach the era of virtual reality with tools such as the oculus rift and unreal engine 4, we decided to explore an aspect of beautiful virtual worlds that is often seen as a flaw. The glitch, which can be considered as the mutation and anomaly of the virtual world, will be the primary driving design language of this workshop. A glitch duplicates, distorts, replicates, and stretches virtual space into unexpected results. Dynamic Mutations V3.0 will explore the complex, unique and often unpredictable results a glitch can create.
