Even though this project was built in 2009, we still like looking back on the 1,000 Doors public art piece created by Korean artist, Choi Jeong-Hwa. The 10-story building was covered with colorful, recycled doors that made an otherwise bland structure into a colorful, stunning coherent construction of found art. The artist
has created a series of beautiful installation work over the years, but this piece done in South Korea is one of the most impressive. (via)

A while back, I mentioned The Crib, an “enviresponsible shelter” by Broadhurst Architects that can be used as a weekend cabin, backyard office, exercise studio, or guest house — you name it. Well it’s time for a short update from our last article, if you haven’t already noticed, that a 250 square-foot Crib was built on
the grounds of the Strathmore in Bethesda, Maryland. It’s being used as a visual arts studio, a lab, and a gallery and is open to visitors during certain events and various other times.

Designs Northwest Architects - with offices in Stanwood, Snohomish County, Washington – have worked hard on the Thomas Eco-House project, but the results are extraordinary. Resting on an 11 acre site in the Cascade foothills of Stanwood, the four-story high modern residence overlooks Mt. Rainier and Everett City to the South, while being surrounded by fresh air from wooded hills and native vegetation. The
contemporary design is defined by energy efficiency and sustainable low maintenance features. Insulated concrete forms (ICF) – “two layers of rigid form insulation between which concrete is poured” – shaping the residential structure ensure a good thermal and acoustic insulation, while the extensive use of glass captured in between the long lasting and low maintenance stucco-finished walls allow the owners to enjoy those beautiful surroundings I was telling you about earlier.

Turkish industrial designer Mebrure Oral has found a contemporary method of displaying books on walls in an organized, creative and fresh manner. By separating books into sections like “has been read” and “will be read”, and making it easy to find each section with a two-level design, Mebrure Oral created the Target
Books Shelf as an interesting aid for those loving how typography can prove useful around the house. Typographic elements act as the bookends, making simplicity the key elements of this beautiful, trendy bookshelf. Made of recyclable ABS plastic using injection molding, the three pieces of the book shelf are assembled into a decorative linear design. We enjoyed seeing that ideas worth spreading combine modern technologies with our defining potential for creativity. What would you like written at the end of your bookshelves?
