Floating building. Sketch #35. All concrete’d out.
Typography sampled from a wall mural (wonderfully irregular), Soviet apartment blocks, Caribbean colors and Greek Orthodox mosaics. So many visual ways to slice the cultures and layered histories of Cuba. Here’s one narrow attempt in sketch número 14. Might try a few more of these along the way.
Just wanted to throw this up on the Phase Blog – designboom is a long time favorite of mine for daily design content, inspiration, reporting, culture-tracking… and I soak it up almost exclusively through their daily eblasts. Usually on my mobile. Well-curated, always fresh, and global in scope. Architecture, product design, graphics, digital, furniture, experimental, art – all bleeding edge stuff. Check it out and enjoy.
Here’s a quick taste of a featured architecture project – ‘fragile shelter’ by hidemi nishida, outside of Sapporo, Japan. More info here.
