Booooooom asks Monstrum

Future of the City

“How can we provide opportunities for kids to make real-life discoveries on their own instead of Googling and Youtubing everything?”

This is the question I posed recently to @smarturbanstage, an online project in which people question the quality of life in their own cities around the world. They found a really cool answer to my question in the form of Monstrum, playground builders from Copenhagen. You can read the article here.

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
