Kinetic Wall: A Vertical Lake Building Facade

International design studio Urban Art Projects puts the soothing effects of water into an unlikely place; the side of Brisbane, Australia’s airport car park.

This project is being developed with artist Ned Kahn. It is called a “Kinetic Wall,” and it will essentially be an eight-story-tall public art installation. Seen from the outside, the installation will look like a vertical body of water, complete with gentle waves and natural movement. From the inside of the building, the movement of the facade will create beautiful patterns in sunlight on the interior surfaces.

The effect is created with 250,000 aluminum panels which are loosely suspended so as to move gently with the wind.

It also helps provide passive cooling and ventilation for the car park, cutting down on energy costs and keeping the building more comfortable all year long. The new parking garage, complete with the unique facade, will be completed in late 2011.

Write? Light!

How many times do a million things rummage through your head just after getting into bed; things you have to do, ideas,  etc? You'll have to get out of bed, turn on the lights and write your thoughts down on a piece of paper (or what not) so that you don't forget about them?

Well with the Write?Light!, you wouldn't have to do that anymore!

It is a lamp that gives off a glow powerful enough to jot down a quick memo. And the way it works is darn cute; kinda like the inkwell and feather effect! Pick up the pencil to light-up; place it back to turn it off.

The Write? Light! Won a Silver Award at the IDEA Design Awards 2010.
By designer, Jaeun Park of Frabrica, Italy.
