“1994” (20 pics I took 20 years ago that I would have instagramed if there was instagram 20 years ago).” instagram mini feed, 2014 @thebreedergallery @angelidakis 1994 is a collection of 20 pictures of city scenes taken 20 years ago. They could be described as ancient instagram, because the buildings they show can each be described with 2-3 words, or maybe just an emoticon. They also represent an ancient form of digital photography, as Angelidakis shot these while walking around with an ancien...

In 2010 we designed this speculative fiction about using the enormous tunnel-boring machines as spaces of retreat in Gaza. Sadly at that moment we weren’t able to imagine that fictions are not so fictional in the terrible world we’re living. /// The complete proposal can be read here: Tunneling Gaza That idea from 2012 of using the tunnel-boring machines for underground retreat somehow is becoming a sad reality —without such speculative technology, of course—, as a response for a re...

rudygodinez: Tasso Katselas, Proposal for an Apartment Complex, (1962) (from the architect’s proposal) “Although the proposed apartment towers will be uniform, any mechanical feeling will be eliminated by their informal arrangement.

Interbau Project 20, Berlin, Germany (circa 1958). Designed by French architects Raymond Lopez and Eugene Beaudouin, Project 20 is a 16 storey point block. It is planned on a north-south axis, with flats on each floor separated into two parallel banks, with 3 flats in each. The lift and landing area separates them.

The Wolfson Building, Somerville College, University of Oxford, Oxford, England (circa 1967) Designed and engineered by Arup Associates, the accommodation and lecture building expresses the concrete structure of the building externally where possible with eye-catching bedroom window bays jutting it out from the frame.
