About Kosmograd Newsfeed
This is the latest version of the Kosmograd Newsfeed, which has been published since 2005 by Martin Gittins.
The main focus of the blog is architecture and the city, viewed through the lens of Soviet Constructivism, and encompassing themes such as branding and city self-image, Suprematism, disurbanism, space travel, edgelands, borders, landscapes, drosscapes, virtual realities, representations.
I am also a sucker for axonometrics, hexagons and space planes.
About Marty here.
A superb video from the recent TED conference, as Joshua Prince-Ramus, formerly Director of OMA's US Office, presents 3 projects, the Seattle Public Library, the Wyly Theatre in Dallas, and Museum Plaza in Louisville, and explores the highly programmatic approach to design in these schemes, with great visuals and a rapidfire delivery.
