Australia’s 1st Carbon Neutral School
Wish I could attend this today. Sounds like there are a number of successful strategies in place. I’m especially intrigued by the waterless urinals… Continue reading “Australia’s 1st Carbon Neutral School”
Perth’s first rooftop cinema!
“Melbourne’s had one for years, and their weather is entirely tragic. With the best balmy summer nights in Australia, we’re making the most of it. We’ve craned a whole oasis environment onto the roof, complete with palm trees, astro turf, a series of vintage caravans from which food and drinks are served, 250 lovely black and white stripey beach chairs to lounge in, and hundreds of pink flamingoes for fun. Think retro Miami poolside mini-golf trashy with a dash of Hollywood glitz.” Continue reading “Perth’s first rooftop cinema!”
POSTCARDS FOR PERTH opens tonight!
Some of these photographs are so exquisite it perplexes me that they are not paintings…perhaps paintographs?
Now here I was thinking I’ve stumbled upon a brilliant new term! But of course, like most things in this world, someone else has already thought of it. Here is a description of it from http://www.flickr.com/photos/mark10314/sets/72157603931061380/
“Paintography is a fairly recent invented term. It refers to an original image, usually a photograph that was altered to look like, or to become, a painting. The altering could be done digitally or in a classical way – using paint and brushes. Another way is to use both methods: print an altered image on paper then paint it with oils and brushes.
Gallery owner Martha Higgins stated paintography as: “Photographs that emulate painterly effects, and paintings that use photography as a subject matter”.”
This is today’s top result for a Google search of paintography http://www.paintography.com.au/
Photographs of the mercurial River Thames made during a 10 day walk in August 2012 backpacking and wild camping where possible along 170 miles of the Thames Path from the source near Kemble in Gloucestershire to the City of London, I chose to end my journey on the steps of St Pauls.
Sweet Thames, run softly till I end my song,
Sweet Thames, run softly, for I speak not loud or long

TWELVE HOURS AT A BAR 1:1 design-build-enjoy
Yesterday was a fun day. I built a bar. That’s right, I built a functional beverage serving bar for Perth’s latest creative installation. 1:1 is a project that ‘aims to create a collaboration between architecture students and professionals as a way of building relationships and forming a creative discourse’. Check out the time lapse video from 1:1 in Sydney last year.
