A really intense facade made of keys-appropriate for a locksmith.

Really fun display of Oxfords at the Cole Haan store in SOHO currently. I would like to imagine the dying process to be the same as dying Easter eggs because that sounds more wonderful in my mind.

architecture, typ.

 

So true in many ways.  Thanks Jeff S. for the find.

moving day

In 1886, a contractor in Los Angeles claimed he could move the Fort Moore High School by hoisting it on top of scaffolding and use people, rollers, and horses to slowly migrate it to its new location. It unfortunately proved to be too difficult and had to be lowered back to the ground midway through the move. I wish they left it on the scaffolding. These are really great images.

baffles and bastions

These approaches for baffled entryways really should be implemented more often. In particular, Serpentine and Labrinthine. I will have to start implementing these in designs.

An image excerpt from “Baffles and Bastions: The Universal Features of Fortifications” by Lawrence H. Keeley, Marisa Fontana, and Russell Quick.

More raunchy than most of my posts, but couldn’t resist. It’s too random and funny. Saw this tonight out on the street (its garbage day) as I walk to do the laundry. Someone picked it up with in a hour. Hahahaha
