Building with Containers in the Black Forest

Building with Containers in the Black Forest

“London architect James Whitaker depict a proposal for a low-cost studio space in Germany comprising a cluster of shipping containers, which are arranged to direct sunlight into the interior at different times of day. Whitaker developed the concept in 2010 while working as a photographer, after he was approached by an advertising agency interested in building a workspace in the Black Forest near the town of Hechingen.” (via/read more dezeen)

Well we like that; pre-fab building which is nice to the eye……

#59 Magazine

#59 Magazine; Black and white photography galore! Mimi Berlin visited the head quarters of #59 Magazine in Amsterdam the other day. Dutch photographer Mart Engelen is the father of #59 Magazine, a large glossy newspaper-like magazine filled with black and white photography. The love of Mart Engelen for (vintage) black and white photography reflects in #59 magazine; the magazine is beautifully printed and has no staples or (glue) binding. We won’t elaborate on that any further, It’s always best to go and see it for yourself; the magazine is for sale at selected stores worldwide (in Amsterdam at Pols Potten and the Van Gogh Museum in Paris at Colette and at Musee d’Orsay in Antwerp at Graanmarkt 13 in Milan at Corso Como 10) Mart Engelen is a photographer himself, his work is accompanied by interviews from his hand, he is interested in traveling, art and photography…. Furthermore, Engelen is a collector of, amongst others, Jean Dieuzaide, Edward Quinn, Andre Villers and Ernst Scheidegger. Part of his collection can be seen and bought at the Suite 59 Gallery in Amsterdam
