Ballerina Project
The Ballerina Project grew from the idea of New York City as a magnet for creativity; each photograph is a collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography played out against the city’s landscape.To find out more about the Ballerina Project please follow our blog: http://ballerinaproject.com/about

Gravity Bike

"This Gravity Bike built by Jeff Tiedeken can reach high speeds when going downhill due to its lightweight design and lack of features like a chain and pedals. The seat is fitted over the rear wheel, and the bike has a low profile, allowing the rider to position themselves like they would on a motorbike.

The minimalistic design features elegant curves, 26-inch Crossmax Lefty wheels, Avid Elixr hydraulic disc brakes and motorbike-style footpeg struts. The bike has reached speeds of 50 mph and is said to have the potential to achieve up to 70 mph.” - PSFK

London tube map
"The tube map is something we all take for granted and rarely consider its origins. Ever wondered who came up with the seamless (but maybe not geographically accurate) design? Well, it was a chap called Harry Beck who was hired to redesign the map in 1931. Some could compare Beck’s approach to the London Underground to Steve Jobs’ vision of computers: ‘what do people need and how do we make it simple?’ as he ditched the curved lines and natural bends and implemented a simple grid-like system making the map easier to read. His first design (above) was rejected leading him to design a map very similar to the one we now know and love. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The London Transport Museum is hosting a season of talks and events discussing the evolution of the tube map, contemporary art, a Piccadilly Line walking tour and much more. Be sure to check out the exhibition and to book quickly so you don’t miss out." Carly-Ann Clements, Time Out
Beatmap
Throughout this Tumblr we’ve been exploring ideas of networked spaces, where software melds with infrastructure or the landscape to create a new experience of space.  This quirky project, Beatmap, integrates GPS, movement and techno freakout music to create geographically dictated mash-ups.
It makes the surface of the earth into a control surface.  Imagine how this technology can change our experience of moving around the planet, the possibilities are only just now being explored.

Zaha Hadid’s Z Boat 


Commissioned by art dealer Kenny Schacter, “The asymmetrical design is sculptural in appearance while practically affording more seating accommodations. In a sense, the bespoke boat is as much a work of art as a Cisitalia sports car in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The idea is to think of vessels and vehicles as highly individualistic expressions of art, architecture and design reflecting the edge of what is possible using the most advanced means, including materials, software systems and methods of fabrication.” - Zaha Hadid

Bubble building

The Stockholm Globe Arena, known as the Ericsson Globe is apparently the world’s largest round building. The globe is the national indoor arena and while built for ice hockey, has also hosted the Dalai Lama, Pope John Paul II and Nelson Mandela.

Inside there is a funicular railway to take passengers around the spherical architecture called the Skyview.  This transport apparatus is made up of a little glass orb which hoists passengers around  using ski lift technology in about 20 minutes, going about 130 metres high.  It is an incredible way to get a first class view of surrounding Stockholm through the syncopated windows.
