Saw this today and couldn’t help but share. Wouldn’t it be nice to have this as an escape in your yard? See link below to get one built just for you.

During the day the space functions as a gallery space, but at night At Proud truly comes alive.  The main room is an old horse hospital where each stall has been converted into personal dens for large groups to enjoy on their night on the town. If this gets dull, feel free to move into the adjacent room for live electronic, indie bands and FREE facepainting. During the summertime be sure to wander onto the large outdoor patio space in the back. Wherever you may find yourself at At Proud, you are sure to have a good time!

Shinichi Maruyama

Japanese photography Shinichi Maruyama captures the unique and ephemeral interaction between water, black ink and movement. Using strobe light photography, he is able to capture images before the mind perceives them and create prints that are powerful and interesting.

P.S. 1 Warm Up

June 24, 2009

Now that we have officially welcomed in the first day of summer, it is time to prepare for this year’s P.S. 1 Warm Up Party. Every summer the MoMA’s contemporary art outpost in Queens hosts a summer party on Saturday’s that is the closest thing you will find to an outdoor rave this side of the Atlantic (although I’m norave expert, so someone please feel free to correct me). Starting July 4 through September 5 the courtyard will blast with music from Reagenz toDaniel Bell aka DBX to Stars like Fleas. For $10 between 2pm-9pm on Saturdays, enjoy live music and experience the new “urban shelter” in the courtyard designed by MOS Studio, known as Afterparty. The outdoor art structures are shaped like conical, primitive huts that serve as a respite from the blaring summer sun.

New Acropolis Museum

June 22, 2009

The construction had just begun when I was living in Athens, Greece in 2006, but this Saturday the New Acropolis Museum finally opened to the public. Designed by Bernard Tshumi the space offers a direct view of the Parthenon, as well as,  a strong argument in the on-going debate of the Elgin Marbles.

In the early 19th century, Lord Elgin, ordered the decorative frieze that adorned the Parthenon to be removed and later sold the famous marbles to the British Museum, where they are currently displayed. For the last two centuries, Greece has been working to regain the Elgin Marbles, although the British have long argued they have no proper place to store them. The New Acropolis Museum hopes to ruin that argument. Θέλω να παω…

High Line

June 12, 2009

The much anticipated high line finally opened on June 8th! Created on the skeleton of an old rail system, the City of New York and the Department of Parks & Recreation have created an elevated urban park through the Meatpacking District. NYMag did an incredible special on the architecture sights you can enjoy while meandering through the unique park. Enjoy!
