Elephants


This amazing vintage Japanese elephant playground was brought to my attention via Playscapes. I love both the playground and playscapes blog.

Vertigo





image via dwell, arch daily, and Tommie Wilhelmsen

Architects Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen designed this overlook platform in Aurland, Norway. The project is enthusiastically described on a number of sites including, Landscape+Urbanism, Dwell and Arch Daily. All I can think of is flying and falling and the feeling of risk involved in walking to the end and looking down, out over the fjord, the transparent glass holding your reflection at the end of the bridge.

I was searching for images related to the word moiré and I happened upon this Czech site, which appears to be about book arts or layout design. "Moiré rather trusts in crafts than marketing." In some ways I enjoy the site's opacity because the lack of context and explanation allows the pattern and images to speak for themselves (or to converse amongst themselves). Interesting collection.

I think this is hilarious.
