Old England Building. Paul Saintenoy 1899, Brussels.
Started as a department store. Now the Museum of Musical Instruments.
Went here last month when I visited Brussels. So cool to see a place I’ve been on tumblr. Now that’s an odd sentence. Think about that.
With seven million people, Hong Kong is the 4th most densely populated places in the world. However, plain numbers never tell the full story. In his ‘Architecture of Density’ photo series, German photographer Michael Wolf explores the jaw-dropping urban landscapes of Hong Kong. He rids his photographs of any context, removing any sky or horizon line from the frame and flattening the space until it becomes a relentless abstraction of urban expansion, with no escape for the viewer’s eye. Infinite and haunting.

My favorite handmade home of all time, found in this book.
Handmade Houses by Art Boericke and Barry Shapiro is one of the most important books for serious students of cabins, if only because the authors were pioneers in recognizing the wave of handmade homebuilding following the 1970’s back-to-the-land movement.
The book, in fact, inspired Scott Newkirk to build the first cabin at Beaver Brook, our place in the woods.
