"La fin du XXe siècle verra donc vraisemblablement une génération à laquelle il ne sera pas nuisible de lire journellement une douzaine de mètres carrés de journaux, d’être constamment appelée au téléphone, de songer simultanément aux cinq parties du monde, d’habiter à moitié en wagon ou en nacelle aérienne, et de suffire à un cercle de dix mille connaissances, camarades et amis. Elle saura trouver ses aises au milieu d’une ville de plusieurs millions d’habitants, et pourra, avec ses nerfs d’une vigueur gigantesque, répondre sans hâte ni agitation aux exigences à peine calculables de l’existence."
Max Nordau, Dégénérescence, 1892

Belgian photographer Filip Dujardin has been getting a lot of attention over the past few years with his combinative photographs of fictional buildings. In these photographs, Dujardin parses together unusual architectural elements, often bringing the backs of buildings into the spotlight and synthesizing forms into tangled or cantilevered constructions. These surreal structures have been likened to old factories along the American rust belt as well as new projects by OMA and work by Steven Holl.via Architizer

I’ve been following her for a year now. She started anonymous with viral mysteries on youtube, and is now known to be Jonna Lee, a swedish singer-songwriter.

The quality of the videos is always sharp and stunning. 

Music is cold and edgy, in the likes of The Knife and Fever Ray. Can be purchased on itunes or amazon

Atelier Bow-Wow: Tower Machiya
'tower machiya' by japanese studio atelier bow-wow is a four-storey residential project in shinjuku, tokyo. sitting on a plot that has just enough space for a single car, the design borrows elements of a ‘machiya’ (traditional wooden communal residence in japan) but is stretched up into a tower form to claim as much living space as possible. the clients, who are fervent practitioners of tea ceremony, also desired thatthe house be equipped with a tea room, one that was spacious enough to accommodatea teaching environment in the future. because the building is limited both in terms of frontage and depth, the spaces withinare negotiated on a vertical axis. by placing the tea room on the top floor, the staircase acts as a ‘garden’, or a pathway for guests to be led up to the room. the arrangement of the staircase also defines the rest of the living space, which offshoot in fragments andare integrated through a rhythmic arrangement of steel beams and columns. in line with the aesthetics of the machiya, the ground floor facade is lined with a setof wooden louvers. netted steel frames provide small but sufficient balconies of 45 cm depth at each level of the house.

Atelier Bow-Wow: Tower Machiya

'tower machiya' by japanese studio atelier bow-wow is a four-storey residential project 
in shinjuku, tokyo. sitting on a plot that has just enough space for a single car, 
the design borrows elements of a ‘machiya’ (traditional wooden communal 
residence in japan) but is stretched up into a tower form to claim as much living space 
as possible. the clients, who are fervent practitioners of tea ceremony, also desired that
the house be equipped with a tea room, one that was spacious enough to accommodate
a teaching environment in the future. 

because the building is limited both in terms of frontage and depth, the spaces within
are negotiated on a vertical axis. by placing the tea room on the top floor, the staircase 
acts as a ‘garden’, or a pathway for guests to be led up to the room. the arrangement of 
the staircase also defines the rest of the living space, which offshoot in fragments and
are integrated through a rhythmic arrangement of steel beams and columns. 

in line with the aesthetics of the machiya, the ground floor facade is lined with a set
of wooden louvers. netted steel frames provide small but sufficient balconies of 45 cm 
depth at each level of the house.
