Corazón de Manzana  |  Pablo Dellatorre
Location: Córdoba Province, Argentina


After searching countless leather stalls and art supply stores, we finally found beautiful leather sketchbooks with fantastic paper at a small stall on the edge of mercato centrale. 
Although I will probably use them as travel journals, I was missing the multi-functionality of my default moleskine so I decided to create a back flap using some of the existing pages in the sketchbook and some decorative paper from Tiger, a Danish store. 
I intend to travel a lot in these next 9 months and now have a place to keep small mementos such as ticket stubs, stickers, etc. It was a fantastic small project for today - I miss studio, and I really miss making things with my hands. 

House of Writing: Suspended Cabins for Writers  |  FRPO - Rodriguez & Oriol
Location: Montricher Sur Morges, Switzerland
- A powerful image came to our mind the day we started working on this project: the image of a city of lights. Cabins would hang from the canopy as lit inhabited lanterns that would give light to the city. But the lanterns of the House of Writing would host a special source of light: Literature.

The Barisieur | Josh Renouf | Via Did-You-Know

The Barisieur is an alarm clock and coffee brewer. It eases the user into the day with the subtle movement of stainless steel ballbearings that boil the water through induction heating, accompanied by the smell of freshly brewed coffee. It encourages a ritual before going to sleep, signalling to the body and mind that it is time to unwind and relax. Living slow even when times are fast.

Treehouse, Atlanta, USA by Peter Bahouth | via

Architect Peter Bahouth built a series of houses in the trees connected by wooden bridges in Atlanta. Inspired by his love for nature and his childhood memories of boyhood treehouses, environmentalist Peter Bahouth created this grown-up fort in his Atlanta backyard. The three rooms of this treehouse have been named ‘Mind,’ ‘Body’ and ‘Spirit’ by its owner. A suspension bridge connects the living room to the bedroom that includes a platform bed which slides out for a better view of the tree canopy.

I realize I have been pretty MIA on tumblr lately but I promise I have good reasons including but not limited to the following

  • black&white film photography class
  • microeconomics class
  • working as a graphic artist 9-5
  • weekend trips to slo/tahoe/pinecrest/LA
  • having a wonderful boyfriend
  • preparing to study abroad in italy
  • generally avoiding architecture because hey I deal with that way too much during the school year.

And here is a shameless plug for my study abroad blog, which will (hopefully) do a fantastic job of documenting my travels in Italy/Europe/some of the rest of the world and my time in Florence, where I will be living from the end of this month until June of 2015.


(I will probably still be on this one but not as much hehe. Ciao)
