This green-roofed home for a master gardener embraces nature

Tapped to design a home for a master gardener in Portland, Oregon, Olson Kundig crafted the Country Garden House, a light-filled home that frames garden views from every room. Designed for indoor-outdoor living, the home features walls of glass that overlook stunning vistas and spans 5,300 square feet to accommodate the needs of a multigenerational family. Clad in reclaimed barnwood, the home’s simple gabled form and ample glazing are evocative of traditional farm architecture. Completed in 20...

These postcards pay tribute to the most recent iconic moment in modern art

People stood absolutely aghast at Sotheby’s as a framed print of Banksy’s mural, the ‘Balloon Girl’ automatically began shredding just seconds after it was auctioned for a cool $1.4 million. The shredder was cleverly built inside the artpiece’s frame, and designed by Banksy himself. The idea was to completely shred the painting in front of the buyer’s eyes, giving consumerism a monumental middle finger, but the shredder failed mid-way, with the print half-inside intact, and half-outside shredded...

‘A Quiet Place’ Mondo Poster Captures One of the Movie’s Best Visuals

People weren’t expecting much from A Quiet Place when it was first announced, but John Krasinski‘s high concept horror film took Hollywood by storm when it debuted earlier this year. With its great story hook, quick pacing, excellent performances, and memorable sound design, it’s still one of my favorite films of 2018 so far. It only makes sense for a film that like to get the Mondo treatment, and now artist Matt Ryan Tobin has reimagined one of the movie’s most effective visuals in the very fi...

How Calder Became Calder

“Most architects and city planners,” Calder told a friend, “want to put my objects in front of trees or greenery. They make a huge error. My mobiles and stabiles ought to be placed in free spaces, like public squares, or in front of modern buildings, and that is true of all contemporary sculpture.”

So How Do You Measure The Impact Of Your Work As An Artist?

“Unlike arts organizations that might have resources for evaluating the impact of their programs, individual artists often lack the capacity to measure how their projects drive social change. They are active. They are doing the work. Providing independent artists with clear content for their own advocacy, and boosting their own research capacities, is vitally important to driving evidence-based practice in the field. I know this because I am one of them.”

One for Hundred a furniture company that grows more wood than it uses

One for Hundred, an Austrian furniture company, was founded on the belief that creating furniture doesn’t have to go hand-in-hand with destroying forests. With this philosophy in mind, Anna and Karl Philip Prinzhorn — the founders of One for Hundred — decided to plant 100 trees for every piece of wooden furniture that they sell. The decision about where to plant the trees and harvest the wood for the furniture was an easy one, because it all comes from the company’s own forest just outside of ...

A perfect post for throwback thursday, these products show us how far we’ve come in just a matter of two decades.

Myths Of The Gig Economy

he gig economy has not only turned millions of Americans into contractors, but it’s given the more successful entrepreneurs the tools to grow even faster. A fast-moving startup can secure talent as it needs it, outsource more quotidian tasks like payroll, and stay lean and mean; indeed, I see entrepreneurs employ this approach through my work at EY supporting creative, successful startups. But there are lots of myths about gig work, whether full-time or part time.
