Wes Anderson Designed a Bar. It’s Just as Quirky as You’d Imagine.

If you’ve dreamed of walking into the quirky, retro set of a Wes Anderson film, you’re far from alone. But unless you were film crew, that’s been impossible until now.

The lauded director recently designed the eccentric Bar Luce for Fondazione Prada, a new art and culture complex by Prada. Now you can walk into a space that looks right out of a Wes Anderson film, and even get a drink there.

Sometimes dreams do come true.

Here is a place for hardy people. The Yemenis of Wadi Hadhramaut and Wadi Dawan, in eastern and central Yemen have built incredible towering villages from an unusual material – mud bricks.

Fear is so pervasive it could be the main human condition. It’s an emotion that follows those who seem to have everything together, and those who can’t leave the house.

But is it really all bad?

For her graduation from Vancouver Film School, San Francisco-based animator and illustrator Nata Metlukh made an exceptional short film which looks creatively at the upside of fear. It’s charming characters challenge us to re-asses the way we look at this common emotion, and schools us in the possibility that embracing it might just take away its power.
