Kai & Sunny’s Mural on Reception Wall

I was mesmerized by Kai & Sunny’s Migration East mural, which I first saw on It’s Nice That. The 20 x 26 ft mural covers a white wall on London’s St Katharine Docks. Giving a lot of character to the space, this vibrant, soft and dynamic mural is in contrast with the more static, stencil-like graphics that are being frequently used lately to compliment a building’s interior.

3D Wall Made Out of Dowels

Merge Architects created a wall made out of 40,000 dowels, for a loft renovation project in Massachusetts. The architects designed the 3d wall in Rhino, where they calculated the precise dimension that each of the 40,000 dowels would need to be in order to create a wave like effect. The result looks very futuristic from afar but a closer look reveals that it is actually a low-tech solution that can be used as a bookcase or for displaying objects.
