The Aalto – Life of an Architect Holiday Cocktail

1 day 15 hours ago

It would seem that I am getting a reputation where cocktails are involved … ironic since I don’t really drink all that much. While I enjoy drinking adult beverages, it would appear that I enjoy making them just as much as drinking them. What started as a way to entertain myself a few years ago, I have since put upon myself the yearly challenge of coming up with an appropriate holiday cocktail which I will share as a reward to the people who have put up reading my site over the preceding 11 months. I like to think of it as a virtual cocktail between you and me, shared in friendship and a mutual love of architecture … and liquor.

I didn’t really come up with this year’s cocktail on my own as I spent the last few weekends reverse engineering a cocktail I had while on my recent trip to Helsinki, Finland. As it turns out, I have a friend who lives in Helsinki, Lewis Martin, who holds the rare distinction of being one of a very small number of people who I have let author a post on this site (read that post here: “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Architecture“). My wife and I met up with Lewis one evening and he brought us to the Ateljee Bar, which resides on the top floor of the Sokos Hotel Torni. We had a lovely evening talking and drinking, and to my great delight, there was a cocktail on the menu called “The Aalto” that I ordered … which is precisely what an architect should have done.

Kick Stopper: 12 Sadly Lost & Forgotten Soccer Balls

1 day 21 hours ago
[ By Steve in Art & Photography & Video. ]

There are few things more poignant than a lost soccer ball, as illustrated by both a charitable Lost Footballs calendar and these 12 emotion-laden examples.

“Ever lost a ball down the park, into a river or onto a busy road? It’s upsetting,” states the Brit-typically understated copy at the Stadiumhoppers site. Since losing the ball pretty much means Game Over, “upsetting” would be putting it mildly to say the least.

Subway Tiles: A Timeless Trend

2 days 4 hours ago

If you’re planning some home improvement projects for your kitchen or bathroom, then you should definitely consider getting subway tiles. You may be wondering what this kind of tile is. As the name suggests, it was first used in subways.

It might not be easy to imagine putting subway tiles in your home but it actually have plenty of benefits. Subway tiles are affordable, versatile, and durable. You can use it for any part of your home, and it will last for a long time.

A Brief History of Subway Tiles

Back in 1904, the subway in New York City opened. The stations were tile-clad, giving it a distinct look. This kind of tile became popular and soon was used in homes for lining kitchen and bathroom walls. Don’t use them for the floor though since they’re glossy, it can be slippery to use them for the floor.

 

You can never go wrong with subway tiles because they are timeless. Many interior designers can attest to this. It is simple but it goes well with just about anything. It will never go out of style. Simply put, it’s become a classic.

What Does a Subway Tile Look Like?

Winners of the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition in 2016, the TU Delft team came in second place this year with a pod design for one of the most promising transportation systems that many countries hope to build in the near future. The Netherlands in particular, where the University is located, hopes to be the first country in Europe to conceive and build a functional Hyperloop system.

The team’s work will help jumpstart the Dutch Hyperloop system’s development and catalyzes the government's efforts to invest in research that will help make the Hyperloop a reality.
