Beautiful Architecture can be made from Shipping Containers


Hechingen Studio from Whitaker Studio on Vimeo.

ART
BEAUTIFUL
Shipping 
Containers


Start with: 
shipping containers
the desert 
& a talented designer
(James Whitaker)
FABULOUS!!!
London-based designer James Whitaker started with the idea of conjoined shipping containers to visualize this 200-Sq ft house, which will have a kitchen, a living room, and three bedrooms with en-suite baths for a client's property in Joshua Tree, California. The home, which will be called The Joshua Tree Residence, will create the illusion of a flower blooming in the desert.
The design and the location site are both beautiful, and the power will be provided through solar panels. (Speaking of solar, a home made from metal shipping containers in a hot desert... might have multiple downsides (very hot walls).

A Sunday Afternoon Walk Through The Met Museum in NYC

The first and last thing you see,
the flowers at the front of the Museum, in the Grand Hall.


ART
A Sunday Stroll
Through The
Metropolitan
Museum of Art
New York City


There is a peaceful and calming painting by the artist Georges Seurat, titled: "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." In the painting, Seurat depicts ordinary people relaxing in a suburban park, on a typical Sunday in Paris (painted around 1884). 

Today, many people find it just as relaxing to stroll through Les Grande Salles of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a typical Sunday afternoon in New York City. 

Here are some photos from a very short stroll I took through the Met on a recent Sunday. I only went through a small portion of the ground floor, taking snaps of whatever objects caught my eye.


I am sharing my afternoon here, with you. Enjoy!

Door Knocker





The underside of the grand staircase facing the entrance,
each stair-step was carved out of a rough stone,

the building opened to the public in 1880.
I thought this was interesting!
