19th-Century Residence Designed by Architect Antoni Gaudí Will Soon Be Open to the Public

Casa Vicens was the first home designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (best known for the Sagrada Família in Barcelona). Built between 1883 and 1885, the building has been a private residence for most of its 130-year history. However, thanks to MoraBanc, who purchased the building in 2014, the building will soon be open to the public!

For the past two years architects José Antonio Martínez Lapeña and Elías Torres (of Martínez Lapeña-Torres Arquitectes) and David García (of Daw Office) have been working on extensive restorations to help transform Casa Vicens into a cultural centre, “home” to both permanent and rotating exhibitions. See more images of the site below or check it out in person this October!

Beeple VR Design Competition

Record label and audio-visual laboratory King Deluxe is hosting a competition to turn the imaginative worlds of Mike Winkelmann (aka Beeple) into VR environments that people can explore together! The aim of the contest is to motivate 3D artists to think more about VR design. First prize is your choice of either a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift (or the monetary equivalent). The deadline of August 14th and the judge of the competition is, of course, Beeple himself!

Given the fact that Beeple has created at least one new work a day for the past decade, there are tons of scenes to choose from. Click here for more information and check out more inspirational artwork below!

A Camera Made from 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographer Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes perfected a way of capturing images using a wooden box filled with 32,000 drinking straws. Started in 2007, and undergoing several different versions, the Straw Camera basically works by processing the light collected through each straw (as opposed to a pinhole camera which creates an image from a single point).

Due to the multitude of perspectives the resulting image looks a bit like a pointillist painting made up of many, tiny dots. See more images below or click here to check out the book recently released about the project!
