Navigating we encounter with this clever video by the band "Husbands", the only information you can find is on their Facebook page, in addition to their bandcamp and two songs that make us think they have a bright future. We know they're French and that his debut with this video has been a success. We leave you with the full information of the Making Of video, equally interesting.

Pratt Institute’s School of Architecture will present “COLD war COOL digital,” an exhibition of 20 scaled prototypes of modernist, pre-fabricated, and globally-distributed Cold War era housing systems that were created using contemporary 3D printing technologies (opening reception 2/18 at 6:15, details below). The exhibition will investigate architectural modernism and its global influence and will connect with contemporary prototype pre-fabrication methods and digital research in housing and skyscraper design. A symposium that explores the technical, aesthetic, and political aspects of prototyping and pre-construction in architecture will be held tonight in conjunction with the exhibition.
The work presented in “COLD war COOL digital” is of significance as approximately 190 million apartments were built using pre-fabricated concrete panel building systems during the Cold War years. The use of these prefabricated systems ushered in a new construction paradigm that transferred building efforts from the construction site to the factory and resulted in housing blocks that were functional, cheap, and quick to assemble. These systems were exported and adapted...
Kitchen Budapest and UrbanCyclr teamed up to untangle the invisible pattern of bike traffic in Budapest. 100.000 kilometers of biking routes collected from individual bikers are overlaid on the city map. All distortions of the map reflect higher biking activity in the respective area of the city. 24h map animation reveals the daily biking patterns of a growing community of urban bikers in Budapest.
UrbanCyclr (urbancyclr.com) app allows bikers to track their biking routes in the city. The individual routes are added to an aggregated map of the bikers' community. 100.000 kilometers of biking routes have been collected from individual bikers since the launch of the app in 2011.
Last week in Grottammare, Italy, the schematic design for ANIMA was unveiled, the first work in Italy by renowned firm Bernard Tschumi Architects, commissioned by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Ascoli Piceno and the Municipality of Grottammare.

ANIMA is a cultural center that will be built in Grottammare, city in the province of Ascoli Piceno, intended to generate stronger ties between the people and the territory. Architecture intends to associate its image to the most...
