Open Box I & II are optical illusions made by Krystina Naylor for a specific location. Would love to have one.

Electronic Instant Camera

July 5th, 2011

Niklas Roy is on a roll, Electronic Instant Camera is an other new project by him. It’s a combination of an analog b/w videocamera and a thermal receipt printer.

The device is something in between a Polaroid camera and a digital camera. The camera doesn’t store the pictures on film or digital medium, but prints a photo directly on a roll of cheap receipt paper while it is taking it. As this all happens very slow, people have to stay still for about three minutes until a full portrait photo is taken.

I really like the look of the prints! Could you take my picture Niklas?

Panteón Nube

June 28th, 2011

Panteón Nube is tomb designed by Clavel Arquitectos. This is the second tomb that I post on today and tomorrow and it’s quite different than this family chapel. The facade can only be opened in a certain way, you have to know the right order to open the doors. Thanks to the translucent onyx on the backside, there’s enough daylight inside the tomb. It’s definitely not the saddest place I’ve seen on a cemetery.

Eternal Flame

June 27th, 2011

t-radya made these impressive portraits of fallen Russian WWII soldiers. The faces were made of bandages on wooden boards and were then burned to create this particular look. Afterwards, the portraits were put up on the walls of an abandoned WWII hospital in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

Studio on Number 17

June 19th, 2011

This office building has the most beautiful basement I’ve ever seen. The raw concrete walls combined with the ceiling lights … awesome. Calling it an office building might be an exaggeration actually, it is quite small, it’s footprint measures only 10 by 3,6 meters. Elisa Valero Ramos designed this very nice space in Granada, Spain.

Lucky Drops

June 17th, 2011

I don’t know what to say about the house called “Lucky Drops”. It was designed by Atelier Tekuto and its name is the equivalent to Japanese old saying ‘the best for last’. You can find more photos and information at ArchDaily.

House M

June 12th, 2011

I guess everyone knows by now that I’m a huge fan of Japanese architecture. So here’s the next one: House M by Jun Igarashi Architects. It does look more to a livable sculpture to me than a real house. Can someone explain to me why it doesn’t have any windows and just ceiling lights? The neighborhood isn’t really nice in this case, but doesn’t they want to look outside?
