Our friend Flea recently came across this website, The Cool Hunter..... their tag line is that they "roam across Australia and the globe so that you're in the know", and they actually do. We want their job! They have topics from architecure, art and design to gadgets, ecoworld and street. This site is literally bursting with cool stuff!
We want to go to this hotel in Chile,
This one in Tokyo,
This one in Greece,
and this golf club in Switzerland..... (we can't even play golf)
This art exhibtion in Buenos Aires,
and we might even get to this cool new Aesop shop in Adelaide....... at least it's in the same country.
bricks + cartwheels is an Australian based non government organisation that
works to provide an opportunity for people and communities to directly influence their own built environment.
As architects we seek to act as
facilitators to empower and engage communities not normally served by good design.
We believe in the potential for young designers to play a critical role in the built environment and the improvement of peoples’ lives.
bricks + cartwheels is currently working with the community of Katolo, Kenya to implement the design and construction of a new secondary school for girls.
