My new favourite artist. El Lissitzky. Russian constructivist!
Amazing compository work. Very honored to have met Duncan recently. A real human being with real stories. Congratulations to Alex Nicholson for this.
Casa Tóló in Lugar das Carvalhinhas, Portugal by Alvaro Leite Siza Vieira
For reasons of functionality and integration, it was opted to organize the main entrance based on the street where car transit was possible. This road leads to the northern higher part of the lot. Nevertheless, it is possible to access the house from a more rustic footpath from the south. Its fragmentation, necessary due to the steep topography, transforms the whole into a composition of small linked and interconnected volumes, creating an unevenness that allows for a more secure and rational use of the lot. In this way the house’s various functions are clarified with each elevation corresponding to a single compartment. The roof functions simultaneously as pavement support for the gardens: similar to the traditional threshing floors and patios in the northern regions of the country with hilly terrain.

Discovered the work of Chayse Irwin recently and fell in love. Checked his name out after watching Nabil’s latest Jay-Z X Baauer effort and realised he also shot the “Fiction” video for the XX earlier this year, my favourite of 2013 to date.
I was particularly impressed by this (even more-so than his reel) but I couldn’t embed it…
THAT film stock. Dayum girl.

Amazing day for night in parts. Outdoing Nabil’s “Retrograde” effort pretty thoroughly. Love it. Love the magenta tones pushed into the mids in the grade too. Lush. Shot on the Epic Monochrome?
