Apartamento, computer game glitches and Indian forts

Jack Self

The AR’s pick of the best from the world wide web

Today I picked up a copy of the new issue of Apartamento, a Milan-based interiors magazine - I am liking what I am reading. To my surprise I stumbled upon an article by Jenna Sutela, who I met recently in Finland. She is part of the think-tank Ok. Do, and will be involved in London Design Week doing a gig called Ok. Talk. I think it’s going to be worth checking out if you’re about.

There is something really fasinating about the impossible architecture of computer-game glitches. Don’t you think? Like Di Stijl for the 21st century…

Things I like: these landscape architects - Paisajes Emergentes - I first discovered them after the wide circulation of their Parque del Lago project, which imagines the adaptive re-use of an old airport. The amphitheatre that doubles as a water reservoir is typical of their simple thinking and elegant design (both via Pruned); Where the Antelope Roam, which asks the question ‘where is the McFarthest spot in America?’ Also of geographical interest, where are the limits of London and what do they look like?

Some links all together: amazing time-slice photographs; a cool umbrella; my dream bike; the abandoned villas of super-villains; infuriating wheelchair ramps. Finally, awesome pictures of Indian forts.
