in an ambitious portrait project of the UK, self-taught artist carl lavia is creating immensely detailed illustrations of the island nation’s 69 cities from an aerial point view. with the help of photographer lorna le bedonchel, the pair use ink and archival paper to produce each drawing, which appear like maps from a distance, but reveal a lightweight impressionist style on closer inspection.

danish firm johansen skovsted arkitekter transforms a cottage and shed sited in the protected landscape of denmark. initially built in 1905, the project is situated among historic vacation homes carefully placed along slopes of overgrown moraine and sand dunes, rising from surrounding flatlands. the reconstruction’s ambition is to recreate the sense and atmosphere of being in the heritage building before it was left unused and timber infestation made restoration unavoidable. the structure, originally built as a pair of log cabins, is reimagined as a wooden light-frame construction, with an exterior maintaining the protected expression of the original house. the new interior interprets memories and accumulated features for contemporary conditions, informed by the modern structure.

Paul Seibert spent much of 2018 hovering thousands of feet over New York City. He was taking photographs for the social media accounts of the helicopter tour company FlyNYON, and over the course of the year Seibert shot the city from almost every imaginable angle. But even though he shared multiple vantage points, the images that always performed best on social media were those taken from a single spot: high over Harlem, looking south over Central Park, the skyscrapers of Midtown, and Downtown Manhattan, with the East and Hudson Rivers converging at the top of the frame.

Antarctica is the driest, highest, windiest, and, of course, coldest continent. Since it’s nearly uninhabitable for humans, it’s also the cleanest. That makes it the perfect place to launch an odyssey aimed at persuading people to curb their plastic-pitching habits.

There’s not much that hasn’t already been said of 3D printing or the predicted revolution that promised to transform manufacturing and put a MakerBot in every home. While the technology continues to evolve, with new applications like cutting-edge medical uses and building-size structures, it has yet to truly overtake industrial production in the mainstream market–though not for lack of effort.

On a recent weeknight at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, the celebrated German designer Dieter Rams ambled up to a podium in his uniform of a black shirt, thinning silver bowl cut, and cane. He was there to introduce a movie, of which he is begrudgingly but indisputably the star.

Creative co-working giant WeWork and acclaimed architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group have teamed up to reimagine education starting with the launch of WeGrow, a new school in the heart of New York City that encourages education through play. Designed for children between three and nine years of age, the light-filled learning landscape is a tactile environment filled with custom-made curved architecture and movable furnishings. The theme of nature runs throughout and can be seen everywhere from the woodsy palette of timber surfaces and shades of green to the Laufen-tiled vertical garden filled with leafy plants.

New gadgets are the best. We especially love ‘em when they find cool, inventive ways of bridging the divide between the old school physical world and the new frontier digital landscape. And is there anything more quintessentially old school than scribbling notes longhand with a pad of paper and a pencil?

The Shoreditch Design Triangle is a loose association of shops, exhibitions and showrooms, united by little more than geography, but it always serves up something wonderful, and often something pretty weird too. Starting with the latter, London-based Mexican designer Fernando Laposse transformed the entrance to CitizenM’s Shoreditch hotel into Sisal Sanctum – an outdoor seating area protected by pretty gloomy looking “giant guardians” – all entirely made out of sisal, a natural fiber harvested from a species of Agave cactus found in the South of Mexico.
