WHEN DESCRIBING A CHARACTER’S GOD FORSAKEN EYE COLOR, PICK ONE YA GODDAMN HIPPIE
When French illustrator Thomas Lamadieu looks upward, he sees the world differently than most. In his imaginative mind, he perceives the odd formations created by tall buildings as the basis for playful illustrations. To create his Sky Art, the artist first photographs odd perspectives of various urban skylines. He then fills in the strange shapes between building and atmosphere with whimsical drawings in Microsoft Paint.
Ruck-a-Chucky Bridge T.Y. Lin International, Hanson Engineers, and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM)
Unbuilt project, 1979
“The bridge was designed to span the American River in California, about 10 miles upstream from a planned dam. The challenge was to connect roads running parallel to the steep valley walls without requiring the extensive and costly re-grading required for a straight bridge, and a curved span with customary vertical supports was ruled out by the 450-foot depth of the anticipated reservoir. Hence the “hanging arc” concept for the bridge, with a curved concrete deck supported by 80 post-tensioned cables anchored in the slopes of the gorge.” [via]
