Rooftop Racetrack: 1928 via Retronaut
“The Lingotto building, Turin, Italy, once housed a Fiat factory. Built between 1916 and 1923, the design had five floors, raw materials going in at the ground floor, and cars built on a line that went up through the building. Finished cars emerged at rooftop level, where there was a rooftop test track. It was the largest car factory in the world at the time. Le Corbusier called it “one of the most impressive sights in industry”, and “a guideline for town planning”.”
Art for pigeons
A street artist by the name of Combo created an open-air art exhibition specifically for pigeons. Not only are the pieces pigeon-sized and placed at the birds’ eye level, they’re each easily recognizable pieces of well-known art that have been altered to reflect a pigeon-centric world. The pigeon version of American Gothic is probably a favourite.
Window Socket - Kyuho Song & Boa Oh
So this is an absolutley brilliant idea! Just attach the plug on to a window and it will harness solar energy. A small converter will convert it into electricity which can be freely used as a plug when you are in the car, on a plane or outside.
Love this design and I really think it has a great potential.

Hancock began his epic effort in April of 2010 along with a personal blog where he posted many of the finished works.

Framework ➾ Luke Gram

Basically the whole premise is exploring depth and design in nature, and I envisioned it as how the world would appear if an architect was drawing the original, underlying draft.
Essentially it’s the framework of the earth which intrigued me.
