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.
Photographer Jan Grothklags has created a book, Concrete Dreams, documenting the construction of the Phaeno Centre in Wolfsburg, Germany, by Zaha Hadid. It might not have won the Stirling Prize, but it looks a damn fine building, and Grothklags images bear witness to a fascinating construction process.
Concrete Dreams won Grothklags an honorable mention in the Digital Photography category of the 2006 Adobe Design Achievement Awards.
You can also see the pages of the book on Grothklags' website.
