Essential Forms by Pedro de Passos

Essential Forms by Pedro de Passos

One thing I always find remarkable is that many of the individuals we pick-up on seem to have very similar influences. Even in unusual ways, whether it be their outlook on life, cultural references, or the importance of certain creatives throughout their journey. It’s almost as if all these dots connect in strange ways, all channeling towards a similar aesthetic. I’m sure designers pick up on this quite often, there’s so much content on the web …

Junya Ishigami, ‘How small? How vast? How architecture grows’

Maybe this is a slightly strange format for a post today, I’m not sure, but the works definitely inspired me and I had an idea of how I could string something together.

Wow, some incredible captures of buildings designed by the great architect Louis Kahn, photographed by Naquib Hossain.

If you’ve not seen it before I’d recommend having a browse here, it’s basically a homage to Louis Kahn and his works through a collection of photographs. Interestingly enough …
