Residence Oedberg by Project A01 Architects

I just want to stay here for a week lol..
residence-odberg-04-630x419
This contemporary residence was created by Project A01 Architects and is located in Klosterneuburg/Austria. The design was inspired by a series of American homes called ‘Case Study Houses’ commissioned by Arts & Architecture Magazine between 1945 and 1966. The initial approach for the project is the central courtyard that follows the perception case study houses. It is defined as the Central living room with a special atmosphere. The whole living area gathers around this open space while the pool frames the landscape, and enclosures the courtyard. The sloping terrain is raised up to a constructed platform, simultaneously extending the garden area. A Pergola is reminiscent of the California “case study houses” of the 1950s.

Pierre Hardy “Cubicorama” Sneakers

FRESH!!!!
pierre-hardy-cubicorama-sneakers-1Always interested in prodding the limits of fashion, Pierre Hardy releases his latest eye-catching silhouette with these “Cubicorama” sneakers. A master of bold, graphic aesthetics as well as sleek, almost architectural lines, Hardy updated the modern high-top sneaker with a medley of multicolored leathers and intriguing visuals — a blown-up cubic motif features on the lace covers while contrasting interior/exterior optical stripes are showcased on the shoe’s side panels. Elsewhere, an ankle strap, leather build and rubber sole make up the details on this dimension-straddling sneaker, a design that calls to mind pop art and the irony of electro music. Pierre Hardy’s “Cubicorama” sneakers are available now at colette.

The Brooklyn Nets Logo- Brooklynites Debate the Simplicity #nets #brooklyn

Me Myself i like the new Nets Logo.. What do you guys think?

Now that the inaugural Brooklyn Nets season is in full effect, we take look back at one, if not the only, defining characteristic of the franchise thus far — its logo. Inspired by the old, pre-MTA subway system typeface, the Brooklyn Nets logo has sparked intrigue, debate, and controversy for a number of different reasons. Its simplicity, often held in high regard by designers, is also somewhat contested by residents of the city for not exhibiting the liveliness and character associated with the borough. In the above video, various citizens of Brooklyn weigh-in and give their take on the design. We also hear from several team executives who were involved in the re-branding process, whom offer a high-level perspective regarding the decisions made in transforming the Nets into their current aesthetic.
