Never thought I’d say I love an abandoned quarry. But through a massive six-year restoration, replanting and re-imagining process, the Quarry Garden in Shanghai Botanical Garden, in the Songjiang District, in Shanghai, China, has become not just a thing of beauty and wonder but a successful travel attraction. An abandoned quarry has indeed been turned into something beautiful.
The Quarry Garden has also earned the American Society of Landscape Architecture 2012 Honor Award. Its easy to fall in love with the tranquility and eerie otherworldliness that comes from the ongoing process of a destroyed natural environment returning back to nature but in a completely new, transformed guise.
29 Can Suirell is a magnificent villa overlooking Port Andratx in Mallorca which was built last summer by PH Mallorca, the Mallorcan division of PH Property Holdings, Cheshire. Curve Interior Design were appointed as interior designers following other successfully completed projects for the client on Mallorca.
Ben Clarke was the lead designer on a project that involved everything from specifying finishes with the developer and the complete design and fit of the beautiful Varenna kitchen to fitted wardrobes and storage, along with the complete specification, supply and installation of all furniture items, window treatments, wall coverings and accessories.
The exterior of the villa is based on traditional Mallorcan design, with stylish outdoor living areas and a stunning infinity pool. The interior is smart and modern with a sophisticated and comfortable feel. The quality of the specification speaks for itself and the sale of the property has recently completed – a delightful conclusion for all involved. Photography by Oliver Mallah.
At first glance, the following images look like painted landscapes, including towering hills, picturesque houses and stormy sea in the background. But if you look more closely you will see that the stormy sea was made of cabbage, trees are broccoli or celery and the hills are freshly baked bread. These aren’t paintings but true photos. And everything you can see in the photo is made of real food. Pictures were created by London photographer Carl Warner who made specialty of these food landscapes or how I like to call them “foodscapes”. In recent years he has been commissioned by many advertising agencies throughout Europe to produce his distinctive images for clients in the food industry.
The process is very time consuming, and so the food quickly wilts under the lights. Carl says”
I tend to draw a very conventional landscape as I need to fool the viewer into thinking it is a real scene at first glance. It is the realization of what the real ingredients are that brings a smile, and for me that’s the best part.
These images can take two or three days to build and photograph, with a couple more days spent retouching and fine tuning the images to blend all the elements together. Carl devotes a lot of time to planning each image before he starts shooting, and he spends a lot of time staring at vegetables in supermarkets.
The EVOS concept car introduces a new design direction for the global car manufacturer ford. Debuting at the 2011 frankfurt motor show, the vehicle is an interpretation of a fastback bodystyle design, featuring four gull-wing doors which open to reveal a four-seat layout. The concept offers a bold red driver’s seat and the vision of unprecedented driver interface. The two rear seat passengers host dedicated touch-screen displays to interact with the vehicle and individually adjustable sports seats. The concept’s technology experience embraces a new generation of driver interaction and awareness, in which the seamless connectivity between the vehicle and the driver’s ‘personal cloud’ of information is the heart of the vision for its capabilities.
With information from the cloud, the vehicle is able to provide the same connected lifestyle the driver experiences at home or the office. The car knows the driver, automatically adapting its handling, steering and engine control to deliver a dynamic driving experience. Drawing from a detailed understanding of the driver’s preferences and habits, the EVOS concept car combines this personal information with additional data from the could, such as the individual’s work schedule and local traffic or weather conditions. This information provides a personalized and seamless sophistication as the driver transitions in and out of the car.

Surprisingly, not everyone wants to hear our music. When we were pumping our LCD Soundsystem mixtape, others in the office said they couldn’t “concentrate” and they “wished we were fired.” For this, and for many other reasons, headphones are an absolute necessity in our daily lives. It was long before Steve Jobs produced white earbuds and Dr. Dre jumped in the game, however, that people began getting tunes pumped into their ear canal. Here’s basically how it all went down.
1881 – Way before MP3s, dubstep and premium Spotify accounts, headphones had little to do with music at all. Back in the 1880’s, the first headphones (or at least their early ancestors) were used by telephone operators. It was a single earpiece that rested on the user’s shoulder and weighed over 10 pounds (kinda like placing a boombox on your shoulder).
1895 – Thanks to the Electrophone system, in 1895 folks could start rocking out to the sick beats of the local opera house from the comfort of their own home. Subscribers to the pricey service would listen through headphones that looked more like stethoscopes than a modern offerings as very large people produced very big sound on a stage miles away.
1910 – Nathaniel Baldwin began manufacturing the first modern headphones. He crafted them in his kitchen and sold them all to the U.S. Navy. This was the first time a pair of cans resembled something you’d see today. Baldwin never patented them, however, because he was an idiot.
1937 – The DT-48’s from Beyerdynamic became the first dynamic headphones to hit the market. Though it would be a few decades before electrostatic headphones came into play, this was obviously a huge leap forward in the can story. Dynamic headphones are, to this day, the most popular type on the market.
1949 – With design in mind, AKG produced their first pair of headphones, the K120’s. If they were reproduced today, they would sell like hotcakes at Urban Outfitters. This model, and other more popular ones that followed, were enough to make AKG quit the film equipment business and focus just on audio.
1958 – John C. Koss changed the headphone game in a way that would make Dr. Dre jealous. In 1958, Koss created the first stereo headphones (Koss SP-3) and launched an all out assault on awaiting ear canals. Over the next few decades, Koss would come to dominate the headphone industry, and he would do it all without the need for a pesky college education.
1959 – At a show in Tokyo, Stax debuted the world’s first ever electrostatic pair of headphones. The SR-1’s would go into production a year later. They are now extremely rare like an original pair of Nike Air Mag’s or a headphone user without hearing loss.
1968 – A decade after introducing the first stereo headphones, Koss unleashed the first US made electrostatic model. The ESP-6’s clocked in at around two pounds, meaning they weren’t exactly like putting in a pair of earbuds, but were still a long ways from the massive pieces created less than a century before.
1979 – If you had to pick the most important event in headphone history, you’d be hard-pressed not to choose Sony dropping the Walkman. All of a sudden, headphones had to be portable. Included with the purchase of the first Walkman were Sony’s MDL-3L2 headphones and everything you needed to rock out to London Calling while roller skating in your driveway.
1980’s – For the man who was prone to headphone hair, the 80’s offered the first solutions. Both the earbud and the in-ear headphone made their way onto the scene in the 80’s even though they wouldn’t reach their peak in popularity until one Steven Paul Jobs changed the music game years later.
2000 – Screaming babies and loud snorers met their match when Bose unveiled their QuietComfort line. Though pilots had been using noise-cancelling technology for decades, now passengers could also get some relief on loud flights (or in front of the TV with a nagging spouse).
2001 – The iPod changed up the whole music universe. It became common to see people with a white cord running from their pocket to their ears multiple times a day. From their inception in 2001 to today, over 300 million iPods have been sold all with the accompanying pair of earbuds.
2008 – Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine joined forces and, along with Monster, created Beats by Dre headphones. Designed with deep bass and great sound quality in mind (this is debatable), the Beats line quickly grabbed a large market share and could be seen on just about every NBA player as they walked from the bus to the locker room.
Alex is a native North Carolinian, 23 years old, and has been living in New York for almost five years now. Although she says she misses the mountains, the grit, grime, and glamour of good ol’ NYC is where she wants to be. Alex is a performer (dancer/actor) and is currently freelancing on a few projects in the city. She also work with kids during most days and teach yoga classes a few nights a week. The site Me In My Place certainly knows how to pick them, and whenever my team finds a girl that doesn’t fit the usual mold of this blog, but is still quite appetizing, MIMP seems to do the trick. Where else can you find a dancer/actress who has lingerie-clad pillow fights while the boys in neighboring fraternities try peeking through the windows.
Anna Williams is a 17 year old self taught photographer from Atlanta, GA. One look through her photo collection and it’s not hard to tell that she has a natural talent for capturing raw, imaginative, photography that captures whatever subject she’s shooting. She says…
“I found my love for photography about a year ago, when I obtained my first camera. I hope to take this passion farther later in life.”
At the age of 17, there’s nowhere but her skill level to go but up, and I hope to be able to check out more of her work later on down the road.
