Oh. My. God. Love.
Permalink | 54 notes "I work with the manipulation of scale, maps, color, and shape in order  to exercise further control over an environment. Shipping containers are  made of steel and are meant to be indestructible. By inverting their  materiality, and making the containers out of paper, I essentially  remove their strength as sturdy objects for the movement of goods. In  turn, the containers become delicate formations of color and shape.The  structure of the sculpture is determined by a satellite photograph  retrieved from the Internet. The containers are placed on the floor by  color, size, and height based on the map created from this photograph.  Like a photo interpreter, I am using the two-dimensional image ‘seen’ by  a machine and re-processing it back into a three-dimensional space. I  am using a system in which I determine the number of containers on the  top layer, based on color and size, and then count the stacks based on  shadow height. By using this system I am not only paralleling the  relationship of a map to its physical site, but my process of counting  doubles as a potential sampling of all the world’s containers used in  trade from a specific site and moment.” (txt: Heather Rasmussen)

Gathering the architecture community on Tumblr.
Reblog this, so that we can see who’s who.
After a week or two, I’ll post every single blog that has an architect/architecture student behind it, or any blog that has something to do with architecture.
It will be a nice promo for everyone

When asked to “repent” by the Judges, Youcef stated, “Repent means to return. What should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?” The judges replied, “To the religion of your ancestors, Islam.” To which he replied, “I cannot.”

Under Iran’s interpretation of Hadith and Shariah law, Pastor Youcef is to be given three chances to recant. He has already been asked to recant yesterday and today, and is scheduled to be asked again tomorrow after which point he could be executed at any time.
