The Transcendent City / Richard Hardy

As everyone who's a regular visitor to this blog knows, my love for everything comic books/sci-fi/fantasy/speculative fiction/geeky stuffs has no bounds. That is why with glee I share this post. A prove that architecture can also be a interesting sci-fi subject, particularly from the utopian/dystopian future angle.

The Transcendent City / Richard Hardy:
A recent graduate from London’s Bartlett School of Architecture, Richard Hardy has produced a fascinating animation for Nic Clear’s Unit 15 that pushes futuristic architecture to a new level. Using David Foster Wallace’s ‘Infinite Jest’, a novel that questions certain aspects of Americans’ obsessive behavior – in terms of the intense fascination with entertainment, materialism, technology etc – the studio challenged students to analyze the implications of society’s “obsessive/addictive behavior…to develop tactics to cope with the difficulties of creating an architecture in uncertain times.”
More about the project after the break.

Cool stuff from My Hometown part 4, Bandung Hilton / WOW Architects | Warner Wong Design

I often drive past this building. While it's awesome,one question remains : what happened to local architects?
Can't we be trusted to build something of this quality or magnitude?
I believe we can.
How to gain trust (or the feeling of 'prestige' from the clients upon hiring foreign architects), however is another issue to discuss.

Batman Married Wonder Woman

Now I know what my wedding day would be like.
Us who read Blackest Night or watched the Justice League cartoon know that Diana have feelings for Bruce. Who knew they'll get serious?
