the ‘cybershot tx55’ camera by sony

the world’s thinnest antishake-enabled camera, the ‘sony cybershot tx55‘ packs new imaging technology
that permits the capturing of two times the level of optical zoom, as well as 3D images and 1080i full HD video.
the device’s exmor 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor is claimed to significantly reduce image noise even in low light levels.

the camera features ‘by pixel super resolution’ technology, which allegedly doubles the camera’s virtual zoom
to 10x at maximum resolution. this technology is also the foundation for the ability of the ‘tx55’ to capture
12-megapixel still photos without interrupting the shooting of full HD video, in contrast to the 3-megapixel
size ordinarily possible for still images taken during video filming with other recent cameras in the cybershot line.

the video resolution of the device has also increased, to 1080i full HD (AVCHD) video at 60fps.

a high-speed autofocus locks onto subjects in 0.1 seconds, while sony’s built-in optical ‘steadyshot’ image stabilization
combines both optical and software digital image optimizationto correct for blur on stills and videos alike.

shanghai-based practice KUU (kok-meng tan, satoko saeki) has sent us images of their most
recent project ‘minus k house’, a private dwelling adjacent to the client’s slipper factory in nanhui, china.
composed of two components – a weekend house and a residence for the worker – the design is
a collection of 3m by 3m volumes that connect to one another to result in a flowing and porous
circulation within.

dutch practice seARCH has created ‘synagogue LJG’, a synagogue for the progressive jewish congregation in amsterdam.
riddled with symbolism of the jewish faith, the neutral rectilinear volume generates a simplistic outwards aesthetic which
conceals the building’s complex narrative and inverted sense of spatiality. drawing from both traditional and modern concepts,
the building seeks to create an environment that abstractly emulates the ideals and beliefs at the center of judaism.

‘towards a poetic morphology’, a temporary installation by the europe-based artist network the cloud collective,
fills a small room with a landscape of letters, together forming robert walser’s poem ‘oppressive light’.

the piece was installed at la fabrique, a former textile printing factory, for the 22nd international poster and graphic design festival
of chaumont
 in france. in the work, a small opening pathway invites visitors to explore the letters and forms, in a windowed room
whose ambiance constantly changes with the sunlight and weather outdoors:

this arrangement in space– strongly affected by sunlight, time and weather– allows the text to slowly detach itself
from its intrinsic meaning and to let form, typography and composition take over. the snowy landscape becomes malleable,
thus creating a multitude of meanings for the observer.

zaha hadid’s mobile art pavilion has found its permanent home outside of the institute du monde arabe in paris
after a world tour – inclusive of new york, tokyo and hong kong – that began in 2008. donated to the institute by chanel,
the unit will aid in the development of broader cultural programs at the center and will host exhibitions that showcase
the talent of designers, artists and architects from arab countries.

conceived through a system of natural organization, the structure is shaped by both functional and conceptual considerations.
fluid geometries and organic lines compose a continuum of fluent and dynamic spaces, where oppositions between light and dark,
interior and exterior and natural and artificial are manufactured. undulating surfaces and flowing volumes converge,
constantly redefining the quality and experience of each exhibition space, while guiding movement throughout.

the new puma house tokyo, located in the japanese city’s aoyama design district combines a press room
and event space into one open area. the interior design has been executed by japanese design studio nendo
who has made staircases a main structural theme throughout. within, these architectural elements are installed
around the existing features of the multipurpose area which is used for events, exhibitions, fittings, media events,
product launches etc. their use is not only for the purpose of climbing, but they also function as display areas
for puma sneakers.

the overall effect of seeing a labyrinth of staircases reminds us that we need to continuously exercise our bodies daily.
visually it also brings us back to puma’s relationship to sports and athletics. the placement of the staircases provide
a sense of movement throughout the interior, enabling a three-dimensional product display that fully uses its environment.

spanish architecture studio espai MGR‘s ‘habits make us blind’ is a photographic series of work which addresses
the vacant lots in downtown valencia, which they pass everyday.

architects’ own words:
‘…like an invisible metastasis generated in the heart of the city and extending to all its arteries. neighborhoods that,
although having huge potential, lay unused, not promoting a good means of sustainable development.
we recognize this as a typical theme in the central neighborhoods in valencia. sometimes, the tourists are the city’s
inhabitants pay attention to the issue at hand for a moment because secondary problems stemming from those spaces
implied affect us directly. however, in most cases, they are only a part of daily way of life. this photographic body of work
aims to call people’s attention to these neglected spaces. it demands the recreational use of these vacant lots as seen through
the eyes of a child, by filling them with impossible constructions, surrealistic installations in line with the problem. (…)’
