Swoon & her "Swimming Cities"

Check out the ongoing art project by artist Swoon and friends. Making boats from scrap and sailing to new and exciting places.

A new way to fund creative projects?

Although, I am not familiar with all of the nuts-n-bolts of it, lets you make a proposal for a creative project that you need funding for. Visitors to the site can donate to your cause. Interesting concept. I need to do more research on this.

Highly reccommended watching for designers

Turf Skatepark Unearthed

So, I went skateboarding last weekend for the first time in years. I went to 3 different parks including a great park in Wheeling West Virginia that is all concrete. Bowls and a street course. It brought back memories of all the years that I skated and mostly about skating in my early teens at the Turf Skatepark in Milwaukee, which was closed 15 years ago. This morning I saw that the buildings on that site were knocked down to make room for a road project. Sure enough, someone had the idea to see it the bowls still existed and started shoveling! Check out this news clip to see what they found! I wish I could get back to Milwaukee this weekend.

Patrick Melcher Death

The Cats of Mirikitani

Eighty-year-old Jimmy Mirikitani survived the trauma of WWII internment camps, Hiroshima and homelessness by creating art. But when 9/11 threatens his life on the New York City streets and a local filmmaker brings him to her home, the two embark on a journey to confront Jimmy’s painful past. An intimate exploration of the lingering wounds of war and the healing power of community and art, this film has won awards at some 20 festivals, including prizes at Tribeca, Tokyo, Bermuda, Bologna, Paris, Philadelphia, Sedona and Sun Valley.

Levi's does Ad Campaign in Braddock, PA

Is it true? Can "BIG BUSINESS" actually do something that is good and meaningful? Well, this looks like a heck of a good start. Braddock, PA is a little town outside of Pittsburgh that is the poorest community in PA. There are some really interesting people doing creative things while trying to bring the town back to life. Levi's did an ad campaign for their new line of "work wear" in Braddock and in turn donated a ton of money to the city and they are making a documentary on the rebuilding of this devastated town. Watch the commercial and part one of the documentary here.

Puma City: World's First Large Scale Mobile Building

Create an 11,000 square foot building that contains a retail store, lounge, event space, and offices. And by the way, the building needs to be assembled and disassembled a number of times at different harbor sites around the world over the span of a year. That’s the challenge that NYC based architects LOT-EK faced when they began work on the Puma City project. The building is traveling around the world with the 70-foot long Puma sailing boat – il Mostro – which is competing in the 2008 Volvo Ocean Race.

Their solution started with using a material they are fond of and have lots of experience working with, shipping containers. The team fitted out 24 containers. But the issue of the building being assembled in a variety of countries presented the biggest challenges. It had to adhere to the international building code. The plug-in electrical and heating and air-conditioning needed to be adaptable to the region. And the assembly needed to be easy enough that crews around the world speaking different languages could assist.
