The team at Saunders Architecture put together one of the most ideal 3 floor studios imaginable. Only reachable by hiking this black twisted tower is sits in one of the most peaceful looking terrains, I can’t even fathom the idea of living like this, its too good.
Came across these great images of some vintage Heuer timepieces. Love that old LED style number readout, particularly on the Microsplit box.

Self described surrealist photographer Kyle Thompson has been doing some very interesting work over the past year. He’s a really interesting case of someone simply creating incredible art and gaining exposure based on nothing more than his talent and hard work — and a little internet luck. I first saw his work on Reddit a while back (I know, it’s a veritable wasteland over there but once in a while some truly good things rise to the surface) and while conceptually it was pretty engaging, the execution just wasn’t there. Skip forward a bit and Kyle’s work popped up on again today. This guy has really progressed in a very short time. Check out his original submission and compare to his recent work. Night and day; I’ve seen people spend years traversing the space that separates these two galleries.

Beautiful abstract urban photography by Munich based artist Nick Frank. Reminds me of blog favorites Matthias Heiderich & Kim Høltermand.
A profile of the incredible Goldstein Residence by architect John Lautner, this makes me want to work a little bit harder today. I’ve been looking to move up to LA in the coming months, maybe I’ll luck out and this guy will need someone to watch his house for a few months.
I enjoy seeing peoples work spaces/offices/etc., I personally haven’t ever had the luxury of putting together a space of my own in the way I want, hoping 2013 will be the year though. Gil Inouoe recently got to photograph David Byrne’s office which I find to be perfect for the size, whats key for you to have in your work space?
Timothy Allen brought back some great shots of the abandoned Buzludzha monument in Bulgaria. As you can see from some of the before shots, this monument was quite a sight during it’s Communist heyday. I can’t imagine what it would be like to stand in front of an architectural and artistic work of this scale knowing it’s just sitting there rotting away.
Allen used a microlight to get the aerial shots, pretty amazing imagery and story.
