Selfridges Skatepark by Brinkworth

Brinkworth proved they can design a great skatepark with Baysixty6. Selfridges approached them to build another one in their Car-park sponsored by HTC.

The skatepark is part of Selfridges Board Games Campaign and is fully functional. Want to have a crack yourself? Go down to Selfridges and you can rent a skateboard or take part in the classes they organise, more information here.

Fashion Shows: The Odd and the Beautiful Part 1.

Aah fashion season. The time of the year London, Milan, New York and Paris gets taken over by the beautiful, the jet set, and the weird. The concept of a fashion show is pretty straight forward: One designer showcases his/her new collection on around 10 models in a very fast pace in a pale environment.

Luckily some brands don’t operate to this standard and always push out the boat at these bi-annual event making their show the one to remember.

Below is just a snap shot of fashion shows that are remembered for their beauty or for its weirdness..

Moncler Grenoble Fall / Winter mens 2014. If robots take over the world one day, this is how I imagine their fashion shows would be.

Sensing Spaces at RAA London

From 25 January until 6 April RAA London presents Sensing Spaces. “Seven architectural practices from six countries and four continents. 23,000 square feet. 72 days. One monumental exhibition.

Some of the most creative architectural minds from around the world have come to the RA to give you a new perspective on architecture and transform our Main Galleries with a series of large scale installations.

As you respond to different structures, textures, lighting, scents and colours, we invite you to consider some of the big questions about the nature of architecture; how do spaces make us feel? What does architecture do for our lives?

You are as much a part of this exhibition as the work itself – invited to touch, climb, walk, talk, sit, contemplate – re-imagine the world around you.”

The show got some great reviews and is well worth a visit when you are in town.
