Leandro Erlich

My architecture cousin spent time in Japan last year and she kept an amazing photo log of her travels. One installation that I was particularly impressed by was the Swimming Pool in the 21st Century Museum of Art in Kanazawa by Leandro Erlich.


I was also excited to discover that he will be exhibiting at the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) this February 2010!

Yellow Treehouse

While perusing design magazines yesterday, I came across the Yellow Treehouse Restaurant in Auckland, New Zealand.
Pacific Environments Architects Ltd. were commissioned by Yellow Pages to create the treehouse with the help of sourcing products & services through Yellow Pages.

"The tree-house concept is reminiscent of childhood dreams and playtime, fairy stories of enchantment and imagination . It’s inspired through many forms found in nature -the chrysalis/cocoon protecting the emerging butterfly/moth, perhaps an onion/garlic clove form hung out to dry. It is also seen as a lantern, a beacon at night that simply glows yet during the day it might be a semi camouflaged growth, or a tree fort that provides an outlook and that offers refuge.The plan form also has loose similarities to a sea shell with the open ends spiralling to the centre ."

A couple years ago when I first saw Stephanie Metz's felted sculptural forms,
it was love at first sight. Her work is filled with emotional elegance, humor, craftsmanship, and above all, honesty.
