Martin Margiela Makes Fashion and Life Size Magazines

(you need a life size magazine to save it)


The New Acropolis Museum

THE NEW ACROPOLIS MUSEUM

The Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built in order to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, covering a large period of time, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece but lies also on the archaeological site of Makrygianni, ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens.

I am totally wanting to see this museum. I wish I go to museums more. I hope to change that this summer (too bad I don’t know enough people who would like to go to museums).

Watch the video:

Crystal Clear by C.F.Moller and Kristin Jarmund Arkitekter

(one fly ass design)

Called Crystal Clear, the winning design features towers composed of consists of stacked glazed boxes. The development totals approx. 90,000 m2 of offices, commercial space and possibly housing, located at one of Oslo’s most valuable sites, the former postal sorting office adjacent to the central station.

I don’t think there is any reason why I wouldn’t want to move into this place…

Architecture: Living ON The Ocean

(just around the corner between Atlantic and Pacific)

Firstly, let me say this; the place that the original story is at has the title, “Seasteading Is The Aquatic Answer To The Housing Crisis.”

Now I would like to know something; where is this housing crisis? Its not in the US with housing prices going down 27% and still dropping . Some towns thinking about knocking down some of the built up empty homes so that they will stop depreciating the value of the homes there… that housing crisis?

LOL

ANYway, back to the cool architecture. I would love to live there. I don’t know what it would be like during storms but I would really like it.

Brief desctipion:

The Seasteading Institute, committed to the ongoing development of ocean communities, has just announced the winners of their first annual design content. Could people really end up living in these hypothetical off-shore communities? The design contest had five categories: Overall, Best Picture, Aesthetics, Personality, and Community Choice

If I knew about it, I would have entered the competition. Hey, you never know until you try! lol
