ART AND ARCHITECTURE IN COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS

 

The incredible English collective, Assemble reverses the traditional order of business. Instead of waiting for projects to come to their office, its members search through deteriorated areas of London and abandoned buildings. After being transofrmed, these structures offer a new and valuable use for the city. Always working with the local community and very involved in the process of production, the collective develops proposals that permeate the fields of arts, architecture and design.

THE BODY AND THE CITY

 

The fifth edition of Celeuma, digital publication from the University Center Maria Antonia – USP, discusses many forms of using urban spaces starting from the theme “The body and the city”. The magazine features essays, photographs, interviews, visual interventions and other unusual narratives, exploring digital platforms.

BILL CUNNINGHAm and editha sherman

 

The fashion world mourned the loss of the fashion photographer, Bill Cunningham who passed away on Saturday, June 25 at age 87. I personally loved this slideshow with pictures taken in the 1970s, of another photographer, Editha Sherman, dressed in period clothes and photographed around the city.
