I’m trying something new here. A making-of Pikcells Best of Week 10/2105 project is in the making and Richard Benson sent me this great breakdown video I’d like to share with you all right away. The article is scheduled for next week, but seeing this you might have questions I would love to slide in as we prep it all up.
Somehow, I just stumbled upon this incredible looking building by Paolo Soleri that he built for the Ceramica Artistica Solimene factory, in Vietri sul Mare. A town in the province of Salerno, in the Campania region of southern Italy very popular as being a convenient place to start the Amalfi Coast drive. I was looking into Thomas Heatherwick‘s works following the post on the new Google HQ and one thing led to another and this gem came up… Lovely! Reminds me a lot of Gaudi, Inside as well with the tree like structure which is amazing just as the exterior.
It was reported earlier this week that BIG and Heatherwick Studio are collaborating on a new headquarters building for Google in Mountain View, California. Yesterday Google unveiled the new design… It’s not a building, not in the usual sense. It’s good that it isn’t. Google Glass is back in a series of canopy-like structures. This would be the first time Google attempts to build their HQ from scratch, and an amazing achievement for Ingels and Heatherwick being singled out as best in class by Google for this project. Both in their 40’s. Google released 10 images (aerial by DBOX for sure. some of the others too but not sure which yet) as well as a video you should see to fully understand the concept, being presented by the designers themselves.
Carlos Mazon posted two impressive images on the forums this week, along with two process videos showing how he takes it from model to final image. This work was done for Wire Collective LTD and designed by Crystalzoo Architecture. Both images were rendered using Blender and Cycles. Check it out!
I’ve rounded up all of the 52 Weekly Best Visualizations, Selected the best in each month to form the 12 Best Visualizations of 2014 and now I’m happy to announce that the BEST Visualization of YEAR 2014 is “Caribbean Tongue” by Tamas Medve! Far from easy, but it had to be one in the end, and Tamas excelled in each category you choose to explore.
