BUILDblog senior field correspondent Josiah Johnson thought we oughta kick off March in style. So he put together this scorching list of links aimed at the hearts and minds of the design conscious. Enjoy, and a huge thanks to Josiah.
Just looking at Maison L gives us a heightened sense of curiosity and wonder.
The work of Nature Humaine brings modern to the brown-stone housing type. Check out the Congregation Residence and St. Hubert and admire the slick interface while you’re at it.
Check out the clever work of Vanden Eeckhoudt Creyf Architects out of Bruxells.
How ‘bout some more hot architecture from the architects in Belgium, like AABE.
And as long as we’re discussing northern Europe, why not swing by Holland and take in some forward thinking design from ZECC.
Get your fix of hot Brazilian architecture with this ultra slick office space and par-tay house by Studio MK27.
The disassembly series by photographer Todd McLellan is absolutely wonderful. It reminds us of being kids and taking stuff apart to figure out how it works.
What we love most about the work of Rasmus Norlander is his ability to bring wonder to everyday scenes.
Between the 1950’s and the 1980’s Circle K built thousands of architecturally identical retail shops around the country. In the 1990’s the company filed for bankruptcy, leaving these building shells vacant. Since then, they’ve been occupied, remodeled, adapted and transformed into just about every sort of retail function imaginable. Photographer Paho Mann has done an extraordinary job documenting many of them in his Circle K gallery.
Influencers is an interesting little documentary film about who’s influential in our culture and why.
A vintage trailer, yurt and teepee hotel and campground located in Marfa Texas, check out El Cosmico.
Artist Slinkachu makes extremely small and playful art in public spaces.
Heard about BOOM? It’s a supergroup of architects taking strategies for community living beyond the think tank, and putting words into action in the California desert. It’s a socially progressive township unlike any we’ve ever seen and you should get yourself familiar with it.
Inventables is the innovator’s hardware store, they sell materials that designers, artists, and inventors use to develop new products and push the boundaries of what’s possible.
More design books than you’ll ever be able to wrap your head around at Designers and Books.
Cheers and happy MARCHing from team BUILD and Josiah…
