White O Residence is Architecturally Complex with Spiralling Enclosed by Toyo Ito & Associates, Architects.
It may look like scene right out a sci-fi flick where humans have begun to establish settlements on other planets in the universe and that too far in the future where traditional architectural norms have become mere relics of history, but this future mega developed city concept called the “Megatropolis” project may just be what a British city of the near future may look like. This architectural utopia came into being as a collaborative project between a few London-based artists and companies though the city that the project’s video depicts eventually ended up being NYC given how the production of the video was undertaken in the Big Apple.
Even though the original “Megatropolis” project was trashed, the “City in the sky” concept that came into being as a spin off though it offers a rather naked vision of the future where underneath the apparently tranquil oasis lies a planet overladen with dirt, stress, noise and pollution. The obvious symbol used in the concept is that of the Lotus flower that rises above muddy water and offers a vision of serenity and peace amongst its murky surroundings.
The saturation of mobile phones has created a trifecta of consumers. One group feels they no longer need to wear a watch since their phones keep perfect time and are always at hand. Others believe a classic wristwatch is the appropriate accessory in a world filled with tech gadgets.
Then there are the folks who just want the coolest high tech watches they can find. If you match that description, this article is for you.
There are nearly as many watch varieties as there are wrists in America. This article, however, is about the cool ones. “Cool” may be a subjective thing, but you know it when you see it. We’ve covered as many bases as possible in our search for the coolest wrist wear. Some of these are inexpensive and some will set you back. All of them, however, are unique.
1. HD3 Slyde – $10,995
You would be hard pressed to count the seemingly infinite number of components and movements packed precisely into the black PVD steel and rose gold case of the HD3 Slyde. Watch Journal Magazine (www.watchjournal.com) writes “it’s a concept that is made possible by the use of cutting-edge electronics and touchscreen technology combined with an haute horlogerie objective.” That’s fancy talk for fine watchmaking, and this Swiss beauty sure is fine. The domed sapphire screen is shot-peened, a cold working process that is similar to sandblasting but on a refined, precise scale. It also features an LED screen with a sapphire crystal cover that conforms to the curves of your wrist. If Bruce Wayne were real, he’d probably wear this watch.
2. Kisai Uzumaki – $129
Uzumaki may sound like a sushi roll, but it’s actually the Japanese word for whirlpool. Once you get a look at this watch you’ll notice the lens’ descending concentric circles, and you’ll get the idea. The hands descend into the center of the watch with the hour hand on the outside edge, the minute’s on the inside. It is back-lit and can be submerged, which is typical, but it is the Uzumaki’s style that truly stands out — especially when you consider it was built from a user-submitted design. http://www.tokyoflash.com
3. Seiko Astron – $3,100
This stainless steel, solar-powered watch comes from one of the world’s most reputable brands. Its classic styling means it will go well with any fashion or occasion, and it has some cool tech under its classy hood. The Astron features GPS controlled time and time zone adjustment, world time functions that recognize 39 time zones via satellite, and a perpetual calendar. http://seikousa.com

A good advertisement will draw a prospective customer’s attention towards your product. That is what every business really wants, aside from you actually purchasing their product. In this article we will round up 16 great ads that cover many different styles but all have one thing in common, that is they connect to their audience.
The average consumer isn’t going to spend more than a minute reading or staring at an advertisement they see on a webpage or on a billboard. The average time a person spends on an ad outside is 1.7 seconds, and 20 seconds on the Internet. The Internet has transformed us into fast browsers who skim through articles (hopefully not this one) and quickly glance at product advertisements they see every day. Our attention span has drastically decreased since the Internet came into play and because of that, ads now have to get their point across quickly through something that is pleasing as well as amusing to the eye. Aesthetically creative ads will get a prospective customer engaged in whatever you are selling or saying.
Panasonic 3D TV – Dino
Here is another ad that has a lot going on but still is able to get its message across fairly easily. We will first notice the dinosaur in the trashed living room but then see the girl pointing at the TV, which will give us the impression that Panasonic’s 3D televisions are extremely realistic. The great art direction leads to the consumer understanding what product is on display almost instantly.
MTV Switch – Fists of Fury, Tornado
Our last advertisement is raising awareness by showing off a very impressive illustration, which grabs the attention of a viewer. Once they are done looking at this fantasy tornado destroying a city they read the quote and learn about what is going on. This is a case where impressive illustrations can grab viewers in and show them what you want them to see.
White powder sand, secluded enclaves, staggering cliffs, crystal clear water, and swaying palms are just some of the reasons travelers flock to the beaches winding around the European coastline. Whether you want to surf, build sandcastles with the kids, ride jet skis, snorkel among the marine life, or merely sleep in solitude, there is a beach waiting for you in your favorite destination across the Atlantic. We’ve picked five from the long list of impressive places to dig your feet in the sand and bask in nature’s beauty on your next luxury vacation in Europe.
If your European getaway is taking you to Turkey, make sure to spend a day at Olu Deniz (Dead Sea) beach and see why it is consistently at the top of leading travel publications’ best beaches in Europe lists. The most famous on its Mediterranean coastline, Olu Deniz is a literal blue lagoon with gorgeous shades of green and turquoise water and creamy white sand surrounded by the mountains and cliffs of Fethiye. Entry into the lagoon requires a fee of 5₤ (about $3 per person), a small price to pay to be enveloped by such tranquility. You can grab a cold drink and light snack at one of the beach bars, rent canoes or kayaks, snorkel or swim in the calm waters, or just lay back and take in the stunning scenery—you might even run into some endangered loggerhead sea turtles crawling by on their way for a dip.

Michael Jantzen’s new artwork is called, Body Reconstructions. He creates images by images of different parts of his own body as the kit of parts.
Much of my work as an experimental artist and designer has explored ways in which the built environment could be reinvented in new and exciting ways. Some of that work has researched the general idea of reconstructing the physical built environment with a kit of parts. This approach is very interested to me because a relatively few number of parts (if well designed) can be combined and recombined over and over again in many different ways, in order to create many different kinds of environments.
In my new series of photo art collages, I have taken a similar design approach, but in this case I have used images of different parts of my own body as the kit of parts. My photo art collage kit of parts included images of my hands, feet, legs, chest, back, and head. Each of these body parts have been assembled together in different ways in different collages, in an attempt to form unique structures.
In some cases, the final image can be thought of as a two-dimensional blueprint for an actual three-dimensional space.
