LANDOFGIANTS






american firm choi + shine architects recently received the 2010 boston society of architects
award for unbuilt architecture for their project 'the land of giants', which they originally
designed for the icelandic high voltage electrical pylon competition back in 2008.

making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed pylon design, the architects
created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable. these iconic pylon-figures
will become monuments in the landscape.

the pylon-figures can be configured to respond to their environment with appropriate gestures.
as the carried electrical lines ascend a hill, the pylon-figures change posture, imitating a climbing
person. over long spans, the pylon-figure stretches to gain increased height, crouches for
increased strength or strains under the weight of the wires.- designboom.com

Saw these cloven hoofs selling for $815.00 on a Canadian high fashion mail order. The brand is Thakoon, but I can't help but think this should stay as an editorial shoe. What if cloven hoofs became the new UGG? So weird. I was obsessively looking for this old blues album cover that had some goat hoofs on it, but all I found was this 80's metal band: Cloven Hoof.

LANDLORDGOSSIP


Tonight, I'm starting a new column called "Landlord Gossip." Tonight's topic is a new Vans Skatepark in Williamsburg. Apparently, my landlord has heard from another landlord that Vans has just signed a lease on an old Odwalla Factory somewhere on Kent street in Greenpoint. It's a 15,000 sq ft space with at least 5,000 sq ft of it going towards an outdoor portion, plus retail space. Maybe they should buy the Autumn Bowl? I'm sure they could use ground shipping and it would get there in like an hour.. Reminds me of skating Milpitas Park back in the day.. that park was fun! Well we'll see if this talk is true by the amount of lysol disinfectant spray and sweaty helmet and knee pads that will be sure to pollute the air when it arrives.
