I started to take driving lessons. Again! After I haven’t touched a car in many years… So funny cars are back among my favorite subjects! And, of course, everything else connected to them.
Pretty, huh? 😀
As we already have those insane cars, maybe it’s time to search for a cool parking place in a a modern metropolis. I could find a lot of pictures of crazy, smashing car parks. The location is absolutely impressive for some. Others have an amazing architecture or artistic paintings. Mmmm… I wish I was there with my little car.
A bridge, an eternal moment and a padlock to seal your love for ever… For some an ancient Chinese tradition, for others just a symbol of love. In Europe, love padlocks started appearing in the early 2000s. And in Italy, the ritual of leaving love padlocks on one of the bridges – Ponte Milvio – is due to the book I Want You by Italian author Federico Moccia.
For many other countries there are no precise origins, but the phenomenon of love locks is spreading like a virus in the whole world. Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
If you are wondering what future might bring. This reminds me a little of Terminator… It is not about another virtual reality, just about looking at everything that surrounds us through a screen with additional information, more info than a normal mind can acknowledge, process or remember, a mixture of product consumerism and architectural spacing. Like we had a computer on board. With lots of commercials and ads. 😛
And not for killing, but for daily “branded” living.
The latter half of the 20th century saw the built environment merged with media space, and architecture taking on new roles related to branding, image and consumerism. Augmented reality may recontextualise the functions of consumerism and architecture, and change in the way in which we operate within it.A film produced for my final year Masters in Architecture, part of a larger project about the social and architectural consequences of new media and augmented reality.

You might think fairy tales are for children. Not always!!! What would you say about a few sweet colours and some warm materials for a fairytale house with a wonderful architecture… almost waiting for a Snow White to come out and greet you with a smile. 🙂
