Renders, really. No shit.
Natureza em Risco
The challenge is to evoke art in the garden summoning the idea of transformation through the (in)voluntary action of visitors.
We have cultivated a path around a white canvas arranged in an arc (determining the interior/exterior of the area), an area to support the action of various markers (different coloured pencils), that will record experiences within the space.
How? The canvas, as we walk past it, will grow a “diary” of the garden, superimposing spontaneous and arbitrary records, productively artistic through the action of the wind on the rods with markers attached to their ends which will operate like a wind printer of the intervention of viewers ready to interact with them, thus creating a drawing of their journey.
To contemplate the creative process, with each new moment, we considered when the viewer would rest, planting an oval bench in the grass, from which a tree sprouts. This moment in the journey offers aromas, sound and shade which are intended to fertilise senses and help unfold a sense of well-being. The tree chosen was a cherry, due to the colour of its fruit spilt onto the bench.
Why an amorphous material for the specific area where the rods are set, when the main objective of this intervention is to create a garden? Why the stone for the place where the steel rods “are born”?
For the sake of irony
After all, artistic creation comes from all the elements grouped in this area, in other words, from the “non living” elements existing in the intervention, which gain life because they display change, the most elementary way of living in the space.

I know nothing about architecture. But this one TED talk made me understand why its important. I’ve always found strip malls objectionable. Now I know why. Thank you Mr. Kunstler.
TED Talks In James Howard Kunstler’s view, public spaces should be inspired centers of civic life and the physical manifestation of the common good. Instead, he argues, what we have in America is a nation of places not worth caring about.
Frederic Chaubin, who was born in Cambodia of a French father and Spanish mother, is chief editor of the French magazine Citizen K, and also a photographer who has been attracted by strange architecture in the former Soviet Union. The photos he takes in countries like Lithuania, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Georgia, reveal an extraordinary, almost sci-fi world. Today, PingMag takes you to the world of Soviet style architecture with Frederic Chaubin himself.
Loving this collection of architectural photography. Different but still within normal parameters. They don’t look like Gehry. They look like 70’s sci-fi. Love them.
TYIN tegnestue is a non-profit organization working humanitarian through architecture. TYIN is run by five architect students from NTNU and the projects are financed by more than 60 Norwegian companies, as well as private contributions.
Through the course of the last year TYIN has worked with planning and constructing small scale projects in Thailand. We aim to build strategic projects that can improve the lives for people in difficult situations. Through extensive collaboration with locals, and mutual learning, we hope that our projects can have an impact beyond the physical structures.The new bathhouse covers basic needs like toilets, personal hygiene and laundry. A simple structure was already built and became the framework for the project.
Autodesk, makers of high-end products such as AutoCAD and Maya, have created a tool for the rest of us.
Project Dragonfly is a web-based utility for laying out rooms and floor plans for furniture layout, construction, renovation or whatever else you may need to visualize.
This is going to be very helpful for us since we just moved into a new office and are looking into buying new furniture.
