City. Image Courtesy of Stephen Von Worley
A new series of maps by California-based artist-scientist Stephen Von Worley give colour coding an entirely new meaning. With his latest algorithm-generated project, “Crayon the Grids,” Von Worley has taken maps of ten major metropolitan areas and coloured them based on geographical orientation of the urban grid. Each street is assigned a colour specific to its orientation, varying in hue and weight depending on its cardinal direction and length. The result is a dizzying technicolor of urban planning, creating completely new demarcations for some of the world’s most recognizable .

Video: Peter Murray of New London Architecture Outlines his Cycling Vision

In the latest video from, architectural journalist and planner Peter Murray ruminates on the benefits of integrating cycling into the urban fabric of the world’s biggest cities. “For the last half century, we’ve bowed down to the god of the motor car and have destroyed cities across the UK,” says Murray, Chairman of New London Architecture and the London Society. Murray and his team at New London Architecture are charged with analyzing and advocating for the improvement of ’s Built environment, acting as advisors to Mayor Boris Johnson on an array of projects including the overhaul of cycling infrastructure in the city.

Through his adventures in cycling across the United States and Europe, Murray has gained insight into best practices with an eye towards implementation in London. Inspired by Dutch cycling infrastructure, “Mini Hollands” are London’s latest project, spearheaded by the NLA and executed under a major redevelopment of London’s bicycle infrastructure, designed to create entire communities where bicycles rule the roads and vehicles are a thing of the past.

Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s “Musings on a Glass Box” Opens in Paris

In celebration of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain’s 30th anniversary, Diller Scofidio + Renfro has installed an immersive exhibition that encourages visitors to experience the Jean Nouvel-designed, glass and steel museum building in an entirely new way.
“The Fondation Cartier building designed by Jean Nouvel will be used as raw material for their work, a first in the history of the institution. Musings on a Glass Box is a complex work occupying the entire ground floor of the Fondation Cartier, where a disturbance in the ceiling will trigger a surprising reaction. The result is an immersive environment, including an integral acoustic component by American composer David Lang and sound designer Jody Elff, that works with the building’s architecture to raise questions about transparency, perception, and one’s relation to space.”
