Lauren Schleider  17 Aug, 2018   Hotels, Travel, summer, for designers, for artists

Scouring the internet to bring you swoon-worthy content. Here’s the latest of what we’re loving in design, art, and culture this month.

 

Designing For Good
  • Wake up and smell the… fresh air? This new residential skyscraper in Toronto will be lined with 450 trees along the balconies and roofs to help clean the surrounding city air.

  • Earlier this week, the AIA vowed to play an active role in addressing and preventing school violence, highlighting a series of initiatives that the group plans to develop as a bipartisan project with US Congress. Read the full statement here.

  • Aquaponic hotels can produce fruits, vegetables, purified water, and flowers for their restaurant and guest rooms. These three innovative design concepts may change the future of hotels and how we think about them.

Eye Candy
  • Move over Renoir, see ya later Degas: reclaiming women’s influence on Impressionist painting through the breathtaking work of Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt.
  • We have a total design crush on these graphic Samuel Accoceberry rugs, and we’re not afraid to hide it.
  • Ever wonder what photo booths were like in the 70s? Long before the booths were party mainstays, conceptual artist Jared Bark used public analog photo stations to create dazzling black and white compositions.

  • ICYMI, The hottest trend of 2018 has shaped up to be … goats?
  • Get your selfie stick ready. The world’s first Digital Art Museum opens in Tokyo.
