Text description provided by the architects. The entry edge of a block house complex was shaped like a sharp triangle.
It was not easy to deploy an efficient plane. But behind the land was a small forested mountain. We decided to put the conditions of distribution in our plan as an advantage. In fact, the architect was looking for a site that was located on the mountain behind him and knew the value of the site. And the architect rejected the uniform design of the complex house and wanted to build his own house. To do so, they chose land that is only located at the beginning and away from the inside.

Found Victorian Photographs Transformed into Pop Culture Trading Cards

5 days 23 hours ago
[ By SA Rogers in Art & Drawing & Digital. ]

Victorian-era photographic subjects are transformed in ways they couldn’t possibly have imagined in a series of modified cabinet cards by artist Alex Gross. A buttoned-up young woman becomes Harley Quinn, a group of young men in suit jackets and cravats turn into the members of KISS, an ordinary-looking couple reveal themselves as Batman and Catwoman. For Gross, collecting found black-and-white photographs in the form of cabinet cards is all about seeing potential in unexpected places.

As in previous years, the fellowship allows the winners to spend a three-and-a-half month residency at the Rogers' Wimbledon House in London. The recipients also receive funding to cover their travel to London and $100,000 cash.

This year's selection committee included Alison Brooks, K. Michael Hays, Sharon Johnston, Hanif Kara, Mohsen Mostafavi, Patricia Roberts, Lord Richard Rogers, and Simon Smithson.
