Chen Chun-Hao 陳浚豪 (b.1971, Taiwan) - Mosquito Nail Paintings
French street artist Sean Hart considers himself a poet (among many other things) and his poetry “is a weapon loaded with the future.”
He paints large, existential-style statements in a condensed typeface on surfaces all over the world.
Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows, also Digg submissions. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul, or that will make Digg front page. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic and earn you many Diggs. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery, because we can track it anyhow—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to."

Cultivating The Clyde - Andrew Strachan - May 2012 - Final Model
These are a few images of the final model I made for my Final Year Thesis. The model base was cut from acrylic and covered with 15 coats of spray paint before my proposal was constructed from 0.6mm black walnut veneer. A “border” of 6mm MDF was build around the edges to finish off the model.
“Cultivating The Clyde” won the 2012 GIA (Glasgow Institute of Architects) Final Year Award - GIA Parchment - awarded to only one student each year for excellence regarding their Final Year Thesis.
Brooklyn Army Terminal ‘Building B’ by Cass Gilbert
The staggered balconies allowed for cranes to pick up or deliver items from various levels without interference from the floor above.
Currently the Kingkey 100 Skyscraper is the tallest building in Shenzhen and tenth tallest in the world. It is situated on the edge of Shenzhen’s CBD and sets a new precedent for the successful 21st century transformation of commercial districts into vibrant and enriching environments. Completed at the end of 2011, the financial office tower was designed with a curving glass body and pointed tip. The curtain wall facade curls up at the base of the building to create a canopy over the entrance to the offices, while a shopping centre branches out from the other side. A hotel occupies the uppermost 25 floors of the 100-storey tower.
