Series of photos from the amazing thread typography installation called “Too much night again”, by Californian artist Pae White.

/// The artist is experimenting in his works often with fragile materials that are forming mass in space with large sculptures: ” In this instance Pae’s threaded installation forms a dark cloud of criss-crossed black and purple across the gallery roof with individual threads trailing back to the wall where they spell out motivational super graphics, reading TIGER TIME and UNMATTERING, inspired by recent bouts of insomnia.”

We want a bathtub

The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects and photographed by Jannes Linders /// The Stedelijk Museum is internationally known and renowned for its commendable collection of contemporary art. Although its collection is equivalent with the international top museums in this field, the building was outdated. With the position on the Museumplein (Museum square) in Amsterdam, where the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Concertgebouw also are situated, this created a great opportunity to be back at the top of the museums hit-list with this fantastic expansion. It’s smooth white volume, made from fiber enforced composite is also known as ‘the bathtub’.

We go with the flow

ordos art museum china organic architecture modern contemporary art museum start architect facade curvy panels systems flow curves curvy architectural photography icon sight visit travel

dutch photographer iwan baan has documented the recently completed and opened 'ordos museum' in ordos, china by<br />beijing-based practice MAD architects. situated at the create of a dune-like hill, the building appears to have landed<br />from another world into the recently created urban center within the once gobi desert. the masterplan is mindful of the existing<br />cultural traditions of the area while addressing the progress and future of the city, allowing the community to congregate and lounge<br />within the surrounding plazas. surfaced with metal panels, the undulating exterior protects the interior from the region's harsh winters<br />and sand storms.<br />upon entering the museum, an atrium with characteristics of a cave and canyon become apparent, introducing swaths of daylight<br />from above along with shadowed passages leading towards galleries. a series of bridges traverse the chasm from one void to another<br />guided by the changes in illumination. residents of the area may circulate through the interior to efficiently cross from one side of<br />the site to the other without entering exhibitions. employees of the center are provided a natural work environment with office and research spaces which flank a south-facing internal garden.ordos art museum china organic architecture modern contemporary art museum start architect facade curvy panels systems flow curves curvy architectural photography icon sight visit travel
