Who wants some extra arms?

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

When you form a new company, spend six months working your rocks off redesigning and rebuilding a 3.5 hectare site, and the previous designer - who's 'award winning' effort resulted in administration for the client - publicly claims your work as his own.

Classic.
I like it. What is it?

Not sure if Chubby's old link still works, but I googled it after reading this on t'bbc. Strangely addictive as previously pointed out...

Jesus. Art students: put the science down and step away from the Vehicle.

Agar, tryptone and yeast extract is very cheap, 15g/L and a quick turn in the pressure cooker and you're good. For all the fucking good it'll do ya.


Also similarly designed to support women's intimate health, the Looncup – the "world's first smart menstruation cup" – connects to a phone app and provides updates about likelihood of surviving her moods through the weekend.

When you see those internal pictures you can kind of get the idea of what they envisaged these places to be, rather than what they became.

I mean, I could talk bollocks for hours on the history of this stuff, but the two key issues which usually get overlooked, to my mind are:

- '60's concrete nightmare' gets used as a catch-all reference. Some of this - particularly the system-built concrete panel stuff - was incredibly badly built, but by no means should that apply to all of it.
- There's really not enough differentiation in the public mind between architecture / design and ongoing management.

These are good flats, and a damn sight better than a lot of stuff built now, if looked after.

seeing this thread today goes together with a conversation i had today, a typical january natter about holidays and a colleague said he was off to holland on the hull rotterdam ferry, and i suggested he went to this place...

which is a market hall, with a massive internal mural of flowers and stuff and a huge variety of stalls featuring food and booze from around the world. it's a great place to spend a few hours. :thumbl:
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

Anyway, did anyone else see the article on the Beeb the other day about the people designing imaginary football kits? Some absolute stunners in there in fairness.

If you click through to that settpace chaps Instagram page he's got some really good all white kits too. The one he's done for Roma and his Toronto one in particular world make good LUFC templates.

Far from a classic, and with several flaws - obviously identified on these pages - I appear to have been nominated for a creativepool award.

I'm not going to even attempt to take a proper stance on the quality or otherwise but, well, even if it's only nomination worthy rather than prize worthy: You've done that. there's a tangible outcome from your work you can stand back and admire (or critique through being a perfectionist, I'd be the same). Take it from someone who works for a large company which doesn't make anything, well away from the front lines - having that is not something to take for granted.

I'm asking Phil for motivational speeches next time I feel low about my job.

Nice one Devi.
