The Red Line

The shots you see of the city as a back-drop are amazing.

University of Oslo

The university updated their online presence, and their first article is about architecture. From the looks of it, seems like a decent upgrade.

Right after the opening reception of MCA Denver, Architectural Record sat down and had a chat with David Adjaye. Listen to it here. Read the article here.


Way back we talked about skating in Kabul, something this video reminded me of. Its about skating in Uganda. Watch it. Dancing kids and all. Its great. More Uganda Skateboard Union, please.

Shugo Tokumaru - Linne

Enjoying the little pieces of architecture in this video. Lively public spaces and nice scale on all the buildings.

Stjørdal Cultur Center

Watch Reiulf Ramstad talk about the winning proposal. Fast forward to 22:30.

Florence and the Machine

The mirrors and flickering lights created a crazy scaleless space. Wonderful to look at.

Museo Can Framis

Last year our class went to Barcelona. Don't mind doing it again. Anyhow, here's another video by Pedro Kok of a great museum we saw on our trip.

Same guy, another place. We're in Brazil now, and had to add it because the video is edited nicely.
