Coldplay’s Surreal tumblr Inspired Video

Brilliantly weird, strange and surreal the new Coldplay video for the song ‘Up & Up’ from their latest album, ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ is filled with images that seem to be inspired by many of the artists we have featured here on ARCHatlas like Robert JahnsErik JohanssonJati Putra Pratama, and Victoria Siemer. Whether is a turtle calmly flying through a subway station or popcorn dangerously erupting from a volcano the video is a feast for the eyes (you can enjoy it on mute if Coldplay is not your cup of tea). With 23 million views and counting I guess I am not the only one who thinks so.


Too many great images for the 10 image tumblr limit!

Hue Apartments

Hue designed by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects is a 5 level 29 apartment residential development in inner city Richmond, Australia. The project is unusual and innovative providing both a two storey walk-in townhouse type at ground level and three stories of one and two bedroom apartments above. The sectional concept for the building limits the circulation areas to a minimum significantly improving the sellable floor area available to apartments. The facade provides an abstract presence at street level which diminishes the sense of scale of the building relative to the domestic scale of the houses on the opposite side of the street.

Two Buildings Were Having an All-Out Post-It War Until This Happened

It all began with a simple “hi” (6th floor, 3 windows from the left). An employee at Harrison and Star at 75 Varick Street in New York city put up the innocent greeting, not knowing if anyone would respond.

Shortly thereafter a “Sup” appeared from the building across the street at 200 Hudson. Both buildings in the Tribeca neighborhood boast a number of marketing and media agencies as their tenants and it didn’t take long for everyone to get in on the action.

Horizon Media, Cake Group, Biolumina, Harrison and Star, Getty Images and Heartbeat Ideas all got in on the action. The agencies of 200 Hudson and 75 Varick were in an all out war. Even the Post-It manufacturer, 3M, got involved; supplying free Post-It notes for both buildings. And then one night, under the cover or darkness, Havas Worldwide ended the battle in one fell swoop.
