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.

cohesion studio recognizes the contemporary need for disconnect. their folly — a retreat in the mojave desert — offers the opportunity for seclusion while inciting visitors to reconnect with the natural environment. designer malek alqadi at cohesion defines the architectural folly as a ‘whimsical structure built to serve as a conversation piece, lend interest to a view and experience.’ as the studio aims to explore an integration of pragmatic and contextual relevancy, the retreat is both architecturally innovative and environmentally conscious. the image of the buildings respects the endless desert vista while their ‘solar tree’ exploits the desert’s resources making the folly entirely self-sustainable. the inventive decisions made during the design of this refuge emphasize the beauty of the site and provoke an experiential connection to the mojave desert.
