There’s something extra eerie about places that are not quite abandoned just yet, but edging closer and closer to a prolonged death process. Relics of another time, these architectural remnants feel like physical connections to all the lives that passed through them, many of which have already met an end. Lacking any efforts to preserve or revive them, they slowly crumble, waiting for their inevitable demolition. Photographer Michael Eastman specializes in capturing such places on film in all their deteriorating glory.

Everything was designed and handmade by Kagan Taylor and Justin Rice, who founded the studio back in 2010 because they loved traditional craft, architecture, and digital design. They tell me via email that they could have never given this project to a regular contractor, so they had to build it themselves.

AQSO arquitectos’ ‘shoreditch hotel‘ is located on the iconic landmark intersection of old street and great eastern street in east london. the ancient roman street widens on the western side after crossing what is being called the silicon roundabout, the intersection of city road, and opens the doors of shoreditch at haggerston. this junction is not only significant from the morphology of the urban fabric but also for becoming a regeneration catalyst in this old industrial area influenced by the city of london that has experienced an important creative and artistic boom.

Nothing makes the connection between indoor and outdoor space like a courtyard. This week’s roundup of images from Pinterest celebrates some of the best examples, from a Japanese house built around a family’s beloved tree, to the open-air courtyard of an apartment block in one of LA’s densest neighbourhoods.

Facades is an ongoing series by French photographer Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy (previously) which strips isolated buildings of everything but their forward-facing exteriors. In his third iteration of the project he presents the facades of small homes, boutiques, and stately mansions at dusk. The structures are lit by the last waning light of day, in addition to a few street lamps that dot the lonely roads.

A new digital billboard in London’s Piccadilly Circus uses recognition technology to display targeted advertisements based on the make of passing cars, and the gender and age of pedestrians.

The screen wraps around the facades of buildings overlooking the popular tourist destination, and replaces six separate screens that previously formed the advertisement display.

Built-in cameras concealed within the screen can track the make, model and colour of passing cars to deliver targeted adverts, said Landsec, the company that owns the billboard named Piccadilly Lights.

Brands are able to pre-programme specific adverts to play when particular cars drive past, and adapt to the age or gender of passersby.

The cameras and an algorithm register visual cues – for instance, hair length and height – to make assumptions on the demographics of the area. For example, if the algorithm detects a higher proportion of women in the area it could display promotions for womenswear.

Studio DiDeA designs the new Prezzemolo&Vitale London store located on the affluent Kings Road, Chelsea. The shop combines the traditions of a neighbourhood store with a high end deli selling only the very best, traditional Sicilian as well as Italian delicacies, and it shows two large windows at street level with an inside space of 160 square meters on one floor. The entrance is defined by the two big and full food counters marking a path and inviting to explore the inside of the shop, where products are exposed on freestanding refrigerators and almost all the walls are lined with modular shelves.

The V&A museum has salvaged a three-storey section of Robin Hood Gardens, the much-debated brutalist social housing estate by Alison and Peter Smithson that is currently being demolished in east London.

The V&A has acquired two sections of the estate’s garden- and street-facing facades, including one of its elevated walkways that were central to the “streets in the sky” concept devised by the Smithsons.
