Eye Candy: Iemza

I came across the work of French artist Iemza over on UNURTH: STREET ART – and needless to say, it’s pretty dope. I highly recommend checking out more of his/her work.

SUSHISAMBA’s L.V. Sugarcane Lounge


I was actually put on to this project through a press release for Graffiti Gone Global, which had attached these images to showcase an example of the work of FLIP – AKA Felipe Yung – a Brazilian artist and member of the artist collective Famiglia Baglione.

The project itself is SUSHISAMBA’s Las Vegas Sugarcane Lounge, designed by iCrave Design. FLIP was then commissioned to do the murals.


And that’s really all I’ve got. While the photos show off FLIP’s work, which is pretty dope, I also thought the space itself seemed pretty interesting. At first glance the photos show a ‘cool’ lounge with graffiti that seemingly isn’t all that special – but I’m really feelin’ the ceiling treatment, with all these glowing cylinders. Pretty dope.

halo: LED Graffiti


Light Graffiti” is obviously increasingly popular – and now artists can get specialized LED ‘spray cans’ that emulate the feel and action of a can of spray paint.

halo is a handy light-writing tool, preserving the techniques and gestures that graffiti artists use with spray cans. It is possible to change the color and the brightness of the led to change the graffiti’s styles. If the light doesn’t have enough battery, users simply have to shake it to have energy again.

Designed by Aissa Logerot, the ‘cans’ are equipped with the same technology as those shakeable flashlights – a small capacitor is powered by shaking the ‘can’, which runs a coil of wire over a magnet. Changing the cap allows the user to change LED colors [and maybe sizes?].

Eye Candy: The Freedom Tunnel


A selection of images of the Freedom Tunnel in NYC – posted over at City Noise by Peter.

From Wikipedia:

The Freedom Tunnel is the name given by urban explorers, graffiti artists, and a handful of homeless people to the Amtrak tunnel under Riverside Park in Manhattan, New York City. It is also the name of the legendary and constantly evolving graffiti pieces that cover the tunnel walls.

The Freedom Tunnel got its name because the graffiti artist Chris “Freedom” Pape used the tunnel walls to create some of his most notable artwork.

The name may also be a reference to the freedom one may find in this tunnel, the freedom to live unobserved, the freedom to create artwork, and freedom from rent [link].

GRID Architects: Amalia House


At first glance, Amalia House’s form is striking enough to grab your attention – the angular walls, that cantilever, and the way it seems to grow up out of the hillside are all pretty impressive. Then you notice that that furry-looking green siding is grass. Crazy.

Then, upon further inspection, you notice that the grass isn’t even real. My ninjas – please.


Designed by Austrian firm GRID Architects, Amalia House is really a small cottage [that can sleep 6] in the hills of Styria, Austria. The simple design splits the first level with 3 steps [responding to the grade changes on the site], which separates the living room space and the kitchen/dining area. While subtle, the elevation change makes the space feel larger – distinguishing them from one another, and providing views from the dining/kitchen area overlooking the living space and out through a high window to the hillside and town below.


Moving up a spiral staircase to the second floor, one finds two compact bedrooms – one of which opens onto the faux-grass roof, while the other inhabits the cantilever.


I’m not really sure that the cottage qualifies as ‘green’ – but I’m going to go ahead and argue that they’re saving h2o with this fake grass business. Imagine having to water every surface on your home? The artificial grass was apparently ‘chosen by the architects for its tactile qualities, as well as the way it helps the structure ‘nullify the optical differences between roof and wall,’ as well as make a connection between the building and the surrounding landscape [via]’. Regardless, between the overall form [and the cantilever], those kick-ass windows + doors in the living room, and the simplicity of the materials used, this cottage is pretty siiick – and I want one.

Eye Candy: Muto by Blu

MUTO a wall-painted animation by BLU from blu on Vimeo.

This video here is pretty siiick, I have to say. Described on Vimeo as “The new short film by Blu – an ambiguous animation painted on public walls. Made in Buenos Aires and in Baden (fantoche)”, the animation is pretty ridiculous / hilarious / cool. Enjoy.

[Thanks to Jamil for submitting the video! If you have a project you’d like to submit – for the Eye Candy feature or just in general – don’t hesitate to contact the ninjas at ARCHITECTUREatMYNINJAPLEASEdotCOM]

Eye Candy: Snail Graffiti


So, I love this website – Inner City Snail. I don’t really have much else to say about it, other than I think it’s great/hilarious, and it’s totally killin’ me. I do know this: it’s definitely architecture-related, and warrants being on AMNP. How so, you ask? Well, the images are of snails who’s shells have been bombed…and those shells are their homes…and homes are architecture….

Oh hells yeah. Enjoy.
