Winter 2010, backpacking with my best friend through Germany, Italy, Spain and France. Trekking through snow, being robbed, getting lost, losing money, getting bit by bed bugs, seeing sites, meeting people, laughing, crying, riding trains and planes, exploring.
What a fucking trip.
yo this shit be gorgeous
Richard Meier has unveiled his plans for Reforma Towers, a new mixed-use development in Mexico City. The project comprises a pair of towers unified by a base: One contains 40 stories of offices, retail, restaurants, and parking; the other is a 27-story hotel. The highlight, though, is an impressive courtyard carved out of the main tower that merges exterior and interior.
Thanks to my pal Jens, without whom I would not have known this…
Patrick Heron (Jan 30, 1920 - 1999): Azalea Garden, 1956 - oil on canvas (Tate)
"Heron painted this picture, inspired by his garden in West Penwith, Cornwall, during a period when he saw himself moving from representational art to abstraction. He recalled: ‘I referred to the series as garden paintings, since they certainly related in my mind to the extraordinary effervescence of flowering azaleas and camellias which was erupting all over the garden.’" - Tate label text (I edited out the most boring info…)
