Krumbach’s bus stops

_

Krumbach est un minuscule village Autrichien de 1000 personnes où l’on peut trouver les 7 arrêts de bus les plus avant-gardiste au monde.

En échange d’une semaine de vacances dans le village, sept architectes des quatre coins du monde ( Chili, Japon …) ont pu concevoir l’abris bus de leur rêve.

Certes vous ne serez pas tout le temps protégés des intempéries mais le design épuré de chaque abris de bus permet aux matériaux utilisés de rentrer en total harmonie avec le paysage naturel autrichien.

End of the world Cinema

_

Somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range, sits a peculiar sight that is almost completely out of place: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theater. Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas recently visited the desolate location and brought back these amazing shots of a decaying dream. He shares via his blog that the theater was built not too long ago by a man from France with considerable means. Tons of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, not to mention a giant screen that looked like the sail of a ship.

Everything was set for opening night, with one small problem. Kikkas says the locals weren’t particularly keen on the whole idea and decided to discreetly sabotage the generator. A single movie was never screened. So now it sits in the middle of a desert, a random movie theater that was never used. You can still see it on Google Maps

Hip-Hop birthdate
_
This is the flyer of a back-to-school party that took place forty years ago, in the Bronx (1520 Sedgwick Avenue, to be exact).
This party was hosted by Cindy Campbell at her parents’ apartment.
Her 16-year-old brother Cliff, an aspiring DJ and noted graffiti artist otherwise known as Kool Herc, was in charge of the music. Inspired by DJs of his native Jamaica, Cliff would extend the “break” of a song by juggling between two records, providing an optimal soundtrack for the increasingly popular practice of break dancing.
It was at the Campbell’s party on August 11th, 1973, however, where Cliff broke down songs by James Brown, The Incredible Bongo Band, and Booker T. & the M.G.’s, only to pass the mic to his friend Coke La Rock, who then began shouting overtop the beat.
Hip-hop was born.

Fabrice Fouillet - Eurasism (2012)

Artist’s statement:

"Moving a capital city is an important decision. In 1998, Kazakhstan unveiled its new capital and Almaty lost its status to Astana, located 1300 kilometers up North. 

As the world’s most recent capital city after Pyinmana (Myanmar), Astana is also the symbol of a new start, a unique initiative in the Post-Soviet region. This colossal project, the challenge to nature that is the construction of a capital city in an extreme climate which requires the laying of specific foundations, shows the will to break up with the past, to implement historic reforms and to encourage an appropriation of identity.

Considerable means have been deployed so that Astana could assume its role as the country’s new showcase city, while promoting the country’s development and insertion into the global economy.

If architecture generally bears the signs of a particular culture, the face of the new capital city is also one of power and, on a symbolic level, of a new political orientation. The new official buildings are sometimes colossal, bordering on disproportion, the skeletons of ill-assorted buildings rise from this suburban-like area, which vacillates between authenticity and artifice, between materiality and imagination tinged with utopia.”

The sound of the earth

_

The Sound of the Earth is a content of Yuri Suzuki`s spherical record project, the grooves representing 
the outlines of the geographic land mass. Each country on the disc is engraved with a different sound, as the needle passes over it plays field recordings collected by Yuri Suzuki from around the world over the course of four years; traditional folk music, national anthems, popular music and spoken word broadcasts.

An aural journey around the world in 30 minutes.
