Boston Arcology

Say it with me now: My ninja, PLEASE!

Dubbed "BOA", for Boston Arcology, the project was designed by E. Kevin Schopfer as a floating arcology much like the one proposed for New Orleans a few months back. Capable of housing over 15,000 people in new apartments, condos, hotels, offices, and a new city hall, the ?BOA [Bank of America might sue…] extends as a long linear box from Rowe’s Wharf - supposedly in an attempt to preserve existing views and sitelines, while emulating the general massing of Boston by "exud[ing]a rigorous geometric format."

The proportions are, of course, based on the Golden Ratio - and the diagonals within the rectangular frame are actually meant to be a reference to the Boston Common [criss-crossing paths contained within the rigid boundary of the city].

What? It’s a huge box on the waterfront…

Ridiculous.

Clarks Lugger

They’re almost like low-cut Wallos - but with a twist. The Clarks ‘Luggers’ were sold in the US a decade or so ago, and have been hugely popular in Japan - and now are making an incredibly limited-run comeback in the US. check for them at David Z.

Pretty feckin’ dope, if you ask me. To bad I just got new Wallabees…

Feel free to cop a pair for me for putting you on to the dopeness. I’m a size 12.

Franz Ackermann, a cubist for our time

Recently I moaned about the abuse of the term "modern art" to describe the art of today. The joy of working as a critic is that every theoretical notion you may have is going to be contradicted by empirical reality. And lo and behold, I walked into an exhibition yesterday afternoon that proves art is still able to rise in an ambitious and intelligent way to the challenges posed by modern life.

Ninja Weaponry: The Tape Measure

YouTube Preview Image

The good people of Architect Magazine tweeted [twit? twittered?] this to me over a week ago and I somehow missed it until today. This ninja right here is crazily silly sick with a tape measure. Mad skills.

In case you were wondering - yes, this kind of thing is exactly why construction jobs rarely finish on time or on budget. I, for one, think its worth it.

Foto del Quote del Dia 2.16.10

Yes, new format for us. The photo below is of earth, taken by voyager from a distance of nearly 4 billion miles. The original story link can be found here.

Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. - Carl Sagan
