The World’s Strongest Artificial Tornado by UNStudio
Found in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, this impressive feat of architecture has a rather surprising purpose. The 34.4 meter high tornado is spectacular to behold, and is found in the Guinness Book of Records, but it is in fact built to quickly and effectively remove smoke from the building in the event of a fire. A video is embedded below to show the tornado in action.

Room Portraits by Menno Aden
Through challenging camera angles Menno is able to flattern cluttered spaces into two dimensions. By fixing a camera to the ceiling of a room the chaotic spaces that we live in seem organised and neat when the reality is often drastically differant.
“For me as an artist, watching from a higher position on a small space is interesting because I can see someone’s compressed personality”

One Day Poem Pavilion by Jiyeon Song
Using a vast array of perforations in the surface of the pavilion, sunlight is able to pass through to produce patterns that slowly come together to form legible poems. What’s exciting about this work is that the complex arrangement of holes means that different poems are created depending on the solar calendar. So during the summer months a theme of new-life is seen, but during the winter solstice a theme of reflection and the passing of time is produced. The short poems consist of 5 lines and change every hour as the sun passes over the pavilion. The slow reveal of the message through out the day offers a meditative moment in our hectic lives.

"Second Nature" A Documentary Film About Janne Saario

If you are at all interested in skateboarding, architecture, or design as a whole then you’ll probably find this mini documentary as interesting as I did.

"The short film allows a glimpse of Saario’s thoughts and dreams, which float between design, art and skateboarding. Though it also reveals the important concurrence of post-industrial areas, sustainable concepts and natural environments, and unfolds the demanding obligation, towards today’s generation and those to come, to create positive and inspiring, local communities"

Peckham Peace Wall by Garudio Studiage
“The Peckham Peace Wall is a permanent memorial to the hearty spirit of local residents who spontaneously contributed to a wall of Post-it note messages after last summer’s riots”
During the riots that occurred only 12 months ago, residents in Peckham began sticking Post-it notes on windows that were boarded up to show their love and respect for the community that was now in tatters. This permanent installation features 4,000 of those original notes that have been digitised and arranged over a three wall spread.
Limited edition prints have been produced to fund local art clubs, and can be purchased from here.

Paper Cities by Matthew Picton
Mathew Picton creates detailed aerial viewed sculpture maps of numerous famous cities. What’s interesting to note is that he uses various books, film stills, or news paper articles to represent a specific moment that defined the city which he is creating. The two pieces seen above are of Lower Manhattan and Venice. Lower Manhattan is created from headlines that accompanied the 2001 World Trade Center disaster and DVD covers of the film “Towering Inferno” also book covers of the novel “The Plot Against America” by Philip Roth. Venice city is created out of text from “Death in Venice” by Thomas Mann, and sheet music from Benjamin Britten’s “Death in Venice Opera”.

Duality by Moment Factory
I first became aware of Moment Factory through their Interactive Music Wall which I saw a few months ago. Their latest project is part of the growing trend of 3D architectural mapping, which I see more and more, yet still never get tired of it. This particular piece was displayed in Atlantic City on the 4th of July. Utilising 12 HD projectors, 65 RGB standing lights, and 14 surround sound speakers, Moment Factory build a fantastically immersive experience that trumps any fireworks display I’ve ever seen in my life.  
Must Watch:

…no, seriously watch it
