Video of the Week – Future by Airbus

Friday, June 17th, 2011

It has been a busy week here at the¬†Architectural¬†Centre website, but I couldn’t not post this one – so here is a little something for your¬†Friday¬†afternoon entertainment:

Video of the Week XLII – Besti Flokkurinn

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

OK, so this one is doing the rounds at the moment, so pretty much old news, and it’s not really about architecture and design either – but just so funny, especially given that they are a ‘real’ party, who actually contested the recent¬†Reykjavik¬†City Council elections, and won 6 of the 15 seats.

Here is a concept, as presented by¬†Graffiti Research Lab, that I quite enjoy. Of course, it isn’t exactly original, and Wellington architecture has seen its fair share of projected imagery, from the poppies on parliament by our own RSA to ¬†body moving¬†at Te Papa. Thus, I guess it must be the ever so slight frisson of illicitness that makes this seem more enticing – and, perhaps, the real-time¬†spontaneity¬†and the awareness that for your audience, this is a also a spontaneous urban intervention – not one that is scheduled in your summer city calendar between the Teddy Bear’s Picnic and the Beat Girls performing at the Dell. There is potential here to really say/achieve something however, and that is the motive behind GRI, who¬†want to provide graffiti artists with the tools that would allow them to compete with corporate advertisers to get their message across. Somehow I think the¬†bicycle¬†mounted virtual spray can won’t replace the real bomb anytime soon…
