Kids From Around the World Photographed with Their Favourite Toys

Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti spent three years travelling the world taking portraits of kids with their most prized possessions. Not simply a charming look at childhood, the series offers a subtle reflection of parents’ ambitions for their children as well as the socio-economic factors at work in how (and with what) children play. The picture above, for example, was taken in a small village in northern Zambia. Coming from an area without water and electricity, the children created a pretend marketplace, making a game of buying and selling some sunglasses they found in a box Galimberti assumes must have fallen from a truck. See more images below or in his book, Toy Stories.

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!
