“The pavilion was proportioned with a height equal to half the breadth, so that, together with its reflection in the water, the pavilion visually formed a perfect floating cube.”

Folly | Gerard de Hoop

A park landscaped in English style, such as the Noorderplantsoen, should certainly contain a folly. Such bizarre products of the imagination without a tangible function were highly popular in Romantic times and in the days of English landscaped parks.The design duo Huting and De Hoop have designed a similar type of exceptional park construction for the Noorderzon – a modern folly for a modern park. Although this folly does not have a particular function, it does have a use. Whether you sit in it, or climb in it, come and discover the possibilities of this unique construction and let you and your imagination be transported.

the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

Drawings for Manhattan | Jeff Konigsberg | Socks Studio

New York based artist Jeff Konigsberg is familiar with different drawings techniques and subjects. His works range from purely abstract shapes and intricate compositions of lines and wires to more documentary images with a surreal tone.

His series “Drawings for Manhattan” imagines a dystopian outcome after Hurricane Sandy. The natural catastrophe becomes the starting point for a division of the city into different areas as the gigantic walls erected to prevent a damage turn into a real tool for segregation.

In the artist’s words:

“In the days following the flooding of NYC, I began this series of drawings. The first 7 of these images are directly in response to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. I decided to take the concept of sea walls to the extreme.The remaining drawings reflect a more paranoid outlook. They’re about walling off sections of any city into self-governing City States. The walls contain and prevent damage from a range of real and perceived threats.”
