Palau de la Música Catalana | Lluís Domènech i Montaner | 1905-08 | Barcelona
Natural light pours through stained glass windows and skylight of the Palau de la Música, making it the only concert house that relies on sunlight during the day. The walls on two sides consist primarily of stained-glass panes set in magnificent arches, and overhead is an enormous skylight of stained glass designed by Antoni Rigalt whose centerpiece is an inverted dome in shades of gold surrounded by blue that suggests the sun and the sky.
The design of the Palau is typical of Catalan modernism in that curves predominate over straight lines, dynamic shapes are preferred over static forms, and rich decoration that emphasizes floral and other organic motifs is used extensively. In contrast to many other buildings built in the modernisme style, however, it must also be said that the design of the Palau is eminently rational. It pays strict attention to function and makes full use of the most up-to-date materials and technologies available at the beginning of the 20th century (e.g., steel framing). #HelloFrom #Barcelona #architecture
25,000 bundles of thatching reed from the Limfjord and Ringkøbing Fjord were used to create sharp corners and give the Wadden Sea Centre it's sculptural shape.
The thatching technique was developed in collaboration between Danish and Dutch thatchers, resulting in an entirely new approach to the traditional thatched roof.

The lines of the sunset rally my thoughts into a file of gratitude and recognition of the possibilities that I can now.
I see me winning after dismissing my losing streak.
I am no Olympian but this sunset is a champ!

Сегодня первый день в этом году, когда я просто батон🥖 смог свободно заняться и разгребсти Фотографии😌
Мы думаем делать тур в Ергаки на выходные 8 марта (6-9 марта)? Кто хочет? Будет красиво, весело и тепло (как минимум в домике😅)
The cuddle piles are unreal these days, guys.

Analogy 001 - The Domestic Space, Registered
Forma Urbis Romae, 203-211 + Roomba i7+, 2018
Around the year 200 A.D, a plan of the city of Rome was carved on marble at a scale of approximately 1:240 and hung on the interior of a building. Whether it had a functional use or if it was just decorative is unknown, but with all of the city’s walls and columns precisely incised on the stone, it offered a representation of Rome as a sum of interconnected private rooms and urban spaces.
The map was at some point disassembled and turned into construction material, so only a few pieces have been recovered. The rest is supposedly scattered around Rome, inside the walls of palazzos and the foundations of churches.
In 2018, American company iRobot presented its latest Roomba model: a vacuum cleaner that was able to create a map of your home as it was cleaning it. By turning on the machine, users were legally agreeing to share their home information with iRobot.
As a result, we can imagine there is, stored somewhere in a server, a virtual map that includes geolocated floor plan layouts of millions of homes around the globe.
In the 1800 years between Rome and the Roomba, technology has evolved to the point in which what was first engraved by hand in stone is now automatically written in binary code by a vacuum cleaner and represented in our screens as a sum of immaterial pixels. What has not changed, however, is the need (or the will) of human society to survey, document, and register the domestic space, whatever its ulterior purpose might be.
A Series of Rooms is a collection of domestic spaces. ANALOGIES is an ongoing series in which we establish connections between pieces that go beyond their format, period or origin.

Breaking Dawn - One of my favorite images ever. Amazing backlight at sunrise. I labored over composition for a solid hour before finally discovering this one right as the light was peaking. It all came together. #jawdroppingshots #ourplanetdaily #special_shots
