Louis Kahn From 1957 until his death, he was a professor of architecture at the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania. Kahn created a style that was monumental and monolithic; his heavy buildings do not hide their weight, their materials, or the way they are assembled. Louis Kahn's works are considered as monumental beyond modernism. Famous for his meticulously built works, his provocative unbuilt proposals, and his teaching, Kahn was one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. He was awarded the AIA Gold Medal and the RIBA Gold Medal. At the time of this death he was considered by some as "America's foremost living architect
Bruegel « robotchao Recently I stumbled onto the artwork of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. I dunno. I think this might be one of the most beautiful illustrations I’ve ever seen. If anyone has a hi-res pic of this, I’d love to use it to make a print. As for Bruegel, he was a Dutch or Flemish painter and printmaker who lived from 1525-1569. CREATING A MAP FOR YOUR FANTASY NOVEL An ongoing trend for fiction and fantasy novels is having a map for the reader to follow along with, just after the title page in the book. It is also very helpful for the author and the development of their fictional world. When I first started writing my young adult fantasy novel, MER, I was like “A map seems way too difficult.” But I REALLY wanted one.

Synth-ethic: Art and Synthetic Biology Exhibition — Vienna, Austria Tuur van Balen Pigeon d’Or Pigeon d’Or proposes the use of pigeons as a platform and interface for synthetic biology in an urban environment. Tuur van Balen’s project attempts to make them defecate soap! By modifying the metabolism of bacteria naturally occurring in the gut of pigeons, synthetic biology allows to add new functionality to animals commonly seen as vermin and “flying rats,” turning them into tools for urban disinfection. In collaboration with James Chappell, the artist has designed a special bacteria that, when fed to pigeons, turns their faeces into a biological window soap.

Tangible Memories Following on from our pop-up exhibition of audio stories, produced from our winter visit to the MShed (see Memories and Museums) we have been developing another auditory experience using chairs, and inspiration drawn from venturing outdoors. Here I introduce the concept of a therapeutic rocking chair for older people with dementia. Early on in the Tangible Memories project, we recognised that access to the outdoors, and specifically to the natural world, was very limited for many care home residents, often due to a decline in their physical mobility, or particularly if they were suffering from the more advanced stages of dementia. Equally, when we asked ourselves as a team, ‘what would we want in a care home of the future?’, we identified the simple routine of being able to go outside and experience the elements as something that would be of great importance to us all. How can interfaces support slow and meditative interaction in a fast paced world?

article-so-you-want-to-be-a-speculative-spaceship-designer I have been drawing spaceships for over 30 years. In that time, I have talked with many fellow spaceship artists and science fiction art lovers about what is involved in designing a fictional spaceship. I have read lots of science fiction resolving around space travel, and perused many books and articles about real and imagined spaceflight. In addition to being a spaceship artist, I collect spaceship artwork of all kinds. With the advent of the Internet this task became much easier, and to date I have somewhere around 10,000 images of spaceships and related artifacts by fellow artists found online. I marvel at the range of ship designs by and sheer talent of these folks. 25 Amazing 2D Concept Art by Moky Lin 25 Amazing 2D Concept Art by Moky Lin Online Game&web Game company,the art work are some 2D concept and 3D poster.
