Towering Building Illustrations to Explore

Wednesday 06.26.2013 , Posted by

Toby Melville-Brown Density 2

Toby Melville-Brown is in love with civilization and the towering illustrations he creates confirms that fact. Each of his works is a wealth of imaginative detail, often inspired by the human themes which shape our society. His recent Tower Series for example, hones in on what motivates us to build the way we do, creating fantastic buildings that focus on our needs for self-congratulation, utilization and high-density. Each takes its concept to the extreme, creating microcosms of civilization set on fulfilling one exacting goal. The resulting images are fascinating to explore and decipher. [Read more...]

Serpentine-Gallery-Pavilion-2013-by-Sou-Fujimoto 1

For the past thirteen years London’s Serpentine Gallery has hosted the work of fantastic architects in the form of their annual Pavilion, staging perhaps the most anticipated and innovative program in the world. The resulting structures are open to the public, allowing passerby to explore groundbreaking experiments in design from such names as Zaha Hadid (2000), Frank Gehry (2008), Oscar Niemeyer (2003), and last year, Ai Weiwei. This year’s example, now celebrating its opening week, sees a cloud-like structure of tubular steel rising like an apparition from the grounds of the gallery. [Read more...]

Home SWEET Home- A House Made of Caramelized Sugar

Wednesday 06.12.2013 , Posted by

William Lamson 1

People who live in glass houses… probably never had a glass house made of sugar like this one. By caramelizing sugar at different temperatures, William Lamson was able to produce an array of colors, which he used like stained glass window panes for this beautiful Solarium. The one-room “house” was assembled at Storm King Art Center- one of the world’s leading sculpture parks in upstate New York. Surrounded by beautiful hills and trees in the distance on each side, the space was meant to be a meditative, plant conservatory/ zen garden that encourages reflection. [Read more...]

Rooms Illustrated Using Their Descriptive Words

Monday 05.27.2013 , Posted by

mm_bedroom_2

Modern Mantra is a highly unusual series of 18 drawings from Swedish artist Thomas Broomé. Using Indian ink on white paper he creates home interiors completely from written words describing the objects he draws. In this way the words simultaneously describe what they visually depict. In the case of his piece called Bedroom, the flowing sheet covering the bed is built up of repeating versions of the work “BED,” while the pillows are similarly created using only the word “PILLOW.” Each repeated word is distorted and placed in perspective to accurately represent the object it symbolizes, and besides those found in the words, no lines are used.

Mysterious Forces Pull Buildings Apart

Ben Grasso Paintings 13

One word that comes to mind when first observing a Ben Grasso painting: dynamic. Just about every piece of his large scale work is in motion – either being blown outward by an explosion, being blown away by a hurricane-force wind, or in many examples, moved by a mysterious energy beyond explanation. Much of his work features classic wooden buildings from the American plains – their timber frame details, long strips of siding and even surrounding foliage moving quickly in divergent directions. It’s a chaotic sight, but one filled with a surprising amount of beauty. [Read more...]
