Architecture : Faro House

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Faro architects built this contemporary modern residence in the Netherlands. The exterior surfacing is made of charred larch according to an old Japanese tradition. This charred surface makes it unnecessary to treat or paint the wood. There is a little too ┬ámuch use of pine throughout the interior but the design details are exquisite, particullary the large tree trunk that seems to hold up the second floor and the multiple thin slat windows. The use of living or natural elements in the interior are inspired by Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimoro. More pics after the jump…

Rock the Bells NY Concert Review

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

We hit up Rock the Bells this past weekend in NY, so what’s the report? This year’s edition of the Bells was a homage to the hip hop classic albums by Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest, KRS-1, Slick Rick, Rakim, & Lauryn Hill. The lineup was certainly epic so after a late night we packed up the MINI Clubman and headed out of Montreal early Saturday morning. McD’s breakfast, a Rock the Bells iPod playlist, and 6 hours later we arrived at the Big Apple and headed straight for Pier 11 for the ferry ride to Governor’s Island. The crowds were already building when we reached the gate and Rakim was already on stage running the tail end of his classic ‘Paid in Full album’ with KRS-1 up next to do ‘Criminal Minded’. Both these albums were a little before my time so even though I knew them well a much needed siesta was more in the cards to be ready for my personal highlights….
