Porn for…. Architects?

In All-Time-Favorites, Architecture, Design on October 23, 2008 at 3:40 pm

First it was REGULAR porn, then “Porn for Women” then “Porn for New Moms” and now its…”Stair Porn”?

 

and while I don’t, personally, find stairs a turn on, I think that it has a lot of merit and some beautiful architecture and clever design!

A website devoted wholly to the beauty of the staircase… really cool, actually! Their sister-sites are good too:

all fabulous and worth a peek!

Reversing the Role of a Spectator…

what happens when the art you see is also viewing  you? 

a somewhat creepy and really fascinating project  called Opto-Isolator by Golan Levin with Greg Baltus explores the relationship between the art and the spectator…

Bentley takes to the skies with this concept, a partnership beween the classic car company and Dror Benshetrit, Cory Grosser, and Sami Hayek… Though the concept was released  in 2007, the design is timeless and looks like the most comfortable design ever to hit the mainstream…

As a big traveler, I would probably kill to fly in one of these beauties. 

Check out the video at this link.

An Architecture Binge…

In Architecture on August 30, 2008 at 7:03 pm

So I have been on an Architecture binge lately, and most of my favorites (as always) are from Arch Daily, which is just one of the most fabulous architectural look-books out there… an easy-to-navigate blog that has the latest and greatest across the board, from homes to offices to hotels…they have it all.

 

Keep your eyes out for my faves! 

 

 

always, Pontouf
