ROTHKO CHAPEL - INTERIOR (1971), MARK ROTHKO

This looks so peaceful.

I have always loved this one by him, it reminds me so much of a Quaker Meeting House. Just like a Meeting House its devoid of symbols and you can just sit there and focus on God, or the Light or whatever is on you heart and mind.
I know it’s not a Quaker thing but it reminds me of Quakerness, and I love bringing up  Quakerness when I can I get so little of it=)

I would like this for my yard. 
Deemed “architecture in motion,” this electromechanical pachyderm is a moving steel cathedral, constructed from recycled materials and American Tulipwood.
Made in France, the elephant is one of the Machines of the Isle of Nantes (Les Machines de l’île), an artistic and cultural project created in the warehouses of the former shipyards in Nantes, France. The elephant is 12 meters high, 8 meters wide and can carry 49 passengers at a rate of one-third kilometer per mile…along the banks of the Loire River. It was the intention of the artists, (François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice) to conceptualize travel through time “at the crossroads of the imaginary worlds of Jules Verne and the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci.”

Vincent Callebaut Architecte designs for the future, a future that requires sustainability to address the consequences of a changing climate. Their project Hydrogenase was created to meet the need for a sustainable transport system.  To accomplish this they have designed airships powered by seaweed. 

Vincent Callebaut Architecte describes their project:

HYDROGENASE, ALGAE FARM TO RECYCLE CO2 FOR BIO-HYDROGEN AIRSHIP

Between engineering and biology, Hydrogenase is one of the first projects of bio-mimicry which draws its inspiration from the beauty and the shapes of the nature, but also and especially from the qualities of its materials and its self-manufacturing processes. The new green revolution is really in progress and enables us to design the air mobility of the foil after shock, 100% self-sufficient in energy and zero carbon emission! This inhabitated vertical aircraft inaugures a clean and ethic mobility to meet the needs of the population en distress touched by the natural and sanitary catastrophes, and all that without any runway! Its architecture is subversive and fundamentally critic towards the ways of living of our contemporary society that we have to reinvent totally! Let’s take off thanks to biofuels and let’s propel to the eco-responsible transport of the future!
