Miner’s Refuge

Posting from the road. I am currently in San Salvador on a trip around central America, and I am attempting to continue posting along the way.

I wanted to share this awesome house called Miner’s Refuge designed by the talented folks over at Johnston Architects. The interesting use of aluminum siding here is highly impressive.

Mayan Ruins Tour

By the time you read this I will have embarked upon a two week journey through central America exploring the Mayan ruins with my grandfather and two cousins. I am less practiced in my spanish than years prior, but hope that it will all come back to me in the field. Leaving I hold few expectations beyond the hope of shooting tons of photos and experiencing something new or at least different, and spending time with some members of my close yet seemingly distant family will be a pleasure as well. It will also be a much needed break from the oppressively cold and snow winter here in New York.

I return on the 1st of February and you can expect a report along with some shots from the road.

Layered House

This home, named suitably as, Layered House was designed by Jun Igarashi Architects. The naming refers to the fabric partitions, which separate and define the different rooms and purposes throughout the otherwise open plan house. These architects are also the minds behind Asahikada Garage I posted back in December.

Al Kimiya Typeface

Designers Benjamin Varin and Pierre Ferrandez have created this sans-serif typeface called Al Kimiya, based on alchemical symbols. This is a great example of adaptation and the use of reference material to create something wholely different. In the end product, besides the set up glyphs that are infact alchemical symbols, the typeface only hints at the symbols it is derived from.

Antonio Carusone of AisleOne has just released his 2011 desktop wallpaper calendar, which breaks the year up into 3 wallpapers. They come in on size of 1920×1200, which should accomodate most displays.

NYC Time-lapse Shots

Josh Owens known as Mind Relic creates time-lapse photography work that is truly astounding. This collection of shots of New York City captures so much of the physical identity of the city and feeling of well known areas along with major landmarks.

Horai Onsen Bath House

To design a structure that defines itself as man made and separate from nature, but also lives in harmony with the landscape sounds impossible. Architects Kengo Kuma and Associates have accomplished just that with their design for the serene Horai Onsen Bath House.

Milton Glaser Quotes from Creative Mornings

Here is a little roundup of my favorite quotes from today’s Creative Mornings, with design legend and all around inspirational thinker Milton Glaser. Check out more photos from the event in the Creative Morning’s Flickr Pool. If you have any other quotes that resonated with you please leave them in the comments section and I would love to add them to the post.

“Certainty is a closing of the mind. To create something new you must have doubt.”

“Fail more often in order to find out what you’re capable of learning.”

“Color is one of those subjects you never fully learn.”

“Failure and ambiguity are hard concepts to sell to a client who just wants to sell more cans of tomatoes.”

“The act of making things that move the mind is our deepest aspiration in seeking the miraculous.”

- Milton Glaser


The Diaper Epic

All I want to say in regards to this, this is the most bad ass (diaper) commercial of all time. A well deserved hat tip to JWT and creative director Walt Connelly.

Dancers Among Us

These photographs by Jordan Matter, which seemingly masquerade as movies stills, would be intriguing to any viewer. The images however, hold an even more specific resonance to New Yorkers and dancers. These shots are my favorite, but their are many more over on Jordan’s site.

Favorite Photos From 2010 by Chris Glass

I have been a huge fan of Chris Glass and his photography since long before I had the pleasure of meeting him, which only increased my appreciation and love for his images. Each year he puts together a collection of his favorite photos, and this years is particularly exceptional. Chris shoots on a Canon 5D with a fixed 50mm f1.4 lens. A nice manly setup, that gives his photos a crisp accuracy and a nice range of color.

Update:

“I should mention, for 2010 I used a 24-70mm EF lens.” -Chris Glass


Roly by Bruno Erpicum

The updates to this old out building, redubbed Roly, were made by Bruno Erpicum in order to turn it into a house from which to operate a bed and breakfast. Two of the largest additions to the building are the metal sheets used to create a mezzanine level along with the glass box, which juts out to create a living room. Both of these elements boost the congruence of the interior spaces with one another, and the house with nature and the out of doors.

Ballard Bee Company

Don’t let the sterile packing fool you, Ballard Bee is unfiltered raw honey made locally in Northwest Seattle. Corky Luster and his 60 hives currently located at his house in Northwest Seattle come together to make Ballard Honey. Luster’s plan is to expand his operation to approximately 100 hives sprinkled around his neighborhood, in 2011. I am definitely adding this to my mental list of amazing products coming out of the Northwest right now.

Type Snobs

A short film about the concept behind the Type Directors Club competition for this year with Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich and Matteo Bologna talking type with the elegant accents. Very Nice Industries produced this concise, playful little snip-it.

Trublerhütte, Schlieren

A nice simple design by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten, to replace a public social event space in Schlieren, Switzerland. The continuity flows across all the surfaces of the building with the perfectly uniform use of wood panelling. Long sliding doors also help to open all four corners of of the hütte to the outside and the surrounding nature.

IE-TAGs (better post-its)

I love architectural design thinking applied to atypical problems. IE-TAGs are a brilliantly clear vision to make a better post-it by Naruse Inokuma Architects. Beginning with discarded wood and ending with a stack of recycled sticky notes.

Milton Glaser on Teaching

“Fundamentally I teach because it makes me feel good. It helped me certainly clarify my own objectives. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing someone’s life affected in a positive way by something you’ve said.”

- Milton Glaser
