I love the lines, the simple planes, the archetypal shape with unconventional cutouts, the site, the colour (or lack or it). I love this house by Portuguese architects Aires Mateus.Read More

Now THIS is one son of a gun.
Larry Houghton of Lamb Engineering in the UK keeps a low profile on the custom motorcycle scene. But he’s got an unerring eye when it comes to building show winners: his latest creation took the top trophy at Custom Chrome’s recent European Bike Show. ‘Son Of A Gun’ is based on a BSA Gold Star, although there’s little left of the original.

The project uses custom software developed using openKinect and openFrameworks. To create an army figurine style souvenir, visitors use 3 kinect sensors to create a 360-degree scan which creates input pointclouds. Meshlab then uses these combined pointclouds to create a Poisson reconstruction, which is cleaned up via Blender and Skeinforge before being fed into a cnc machine (Rapman 3.1), which prints out the souvenir.

Now this is pretty mad.
Thru Religion is a 3D printed object created by Drzach & Suchy. The object has multiple shadow-casting elements, semi-randomly arranged in three dimensions. When you rotate the object to the right position in front of a light source, you can see 3 different religious symbols. You should also check out these 2 videos of their Shadow Casting Panels.

Well, before I die…I want to live!
What do you want to do before you die? Via Design Milk.
That’s what artist and designer Candy Chang wanted to find out from her neighbors. But instead of just asking them, she decided to create a public art project, called Before I Die.
In her New Orleans neighborhood, Candy turned an abandoned, graffiti-ed house into something inspiring. She covered an entire side of the house with giant chalkboards with the words stenciled “Before I die I want to _________.” She then left pieces of chalk for residents and passers-by to fill in the most important things they want to do in their lifetimes.
