[PI] 3D print concrete brick ready to grow

Designed by Rael San Fratello Architects, the Planter Bricks are custom designed concrete masonry units that can hold plants and vegetation. The planter bricks have the potential to counter the heat island effect in big cities through evapotranspiration and pollution conversion. The plants in the wall help mediate the temperature of the microclimate surrounding the building, buffer sound and help filter the air.

 photo gravity_zpsa0c5fc38.jpg
For this installation at Young Projects in Los Angeles, Michael Haussman shot five different subjects on a trampoline and gave each a specific prop and background. As the artist says, “to the normal viewer, a person jumping on a trampoline is just a figure moving up and down and their expression is a blur of motion. To capture this action and emotion, all the subjects were shot at 2,000 frames per second.

[PI]FLUO HOUSE

Instant Hutong | marcella campa & stefano avesani“fluo house is a site specific meet-up space made of colorful tapes and created on occasion of Beijing BaiYe – Beijing White Night on 22-23 March 2013, in which for 24 hours visitors could enjoy 24 different events and encounters around Dongsi area in Beijing. We chose a half destroyed little room within a demolition site and we decided to deal playfully with this idea of temporary, ephemeral, fading and rebuilding. After removing dust and debris, the back wall was decorated with a graphic illusion as starting visible sign to mark our intervention. Visitors could take fluorescent stickers and reflector adhesive strips and use them to fill the remaining walls.”
