Looking back at my audition, i was pretty critical, then. I was going through a period of rebelling. I wouldn’t forgive the world with my resisting spirit, then. Now i know how to compromise (He gets to listen to the world). I become more flexible.”

Soft House Kennedy & Violich Architecture

“The Soft House project in Hamburg, Germany is a winning competition entry for the International BauAustellung (IBA), a prestigious German building tradition that dates to 1901. Completed in March of 2013, it is a set of live/work row house units which offer a new model for low carbon construction and an ecologically responsive lifestyle that can be personalized to meet homeowner needs. The Soft House demonstrates how domestic infrastructure can become ‘soft’—engaging flexible living concepts, carbon-neutral solid wood (brettstapel) construction, and wireless building controls with responsive and performative textiles which create the public identity of the architecture. Through the conceptual reframing of ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ materials and the integration of architecture, mobile textiles, and clean energy infrastructure the Soft House transforms the German PassiveHaus typology, offering a more flexible living experience.”


Frameline Identity by Mucho

“Mucho has refreshed the brand identity for Frameline and has produced the creative for the 40th LGBTQ Film Festival. Frameline’s mission is to change the world through the power of queer cinema. Mucho wanted to create an identity that really resonated with the idea of inclusivity. The resulting ‘frame’ logo with a capital ‘F’ and queer ‘L’ (as they like to refer to it), creates an image that becomes instantly recognizable, flexible—as it opens out to highlight type and imagery and works well at small sizes for social media applications.”

Mucho is the global boutique design studio. They want to live in a world that’s thoughtful, considered and aesthetically pleasing. So they have set out to design it. With a number of small offices in Europe and the U.S., their principals represent multiple cultures yet are dedicated to a singular mission: to define how companies are perceived in the world, so they can stand out and succeed. Mucho offers creative strategy and design for all kinds of clients — from boutique businesses and start-ups to multinational corporations.

Cuchifritos Gallery, 120 Essex St., NYC (inside Essex Street Market)

“An extension of The Real Estate Show of 1979/1980, this exhibition will serve as a living project space, presenting new work that continues to question the impending re-development of the Seward Park Urban Redevelopment Area (SPURA) sites. By addressing certain issues that have both united and polarized the neighborhood over the last 30+ years, the exhibition will encourage artists and community members to become an active part of the conversation by focusing on the particular insights and experimental processes that artists bring to imagining new urban spaces. All of the projects, contributed by former Colab members and participants in the original Real Estate Show, take form through audience engagement, as Cuchifritos becomes a flexible site for the active processes unfolding throughout the duration of the exhibition.” - thru May 18

some trans related headcanons

-jack learned to sew so that while he was out on missions with gabe if gabes binder got ripped he could repair it cause he never bothers to do it himself. jack tried gabes binder on once out of curiosity and he almost got stuck in it 

-gabe was self conscious about his wide hips and legs and still is but feels a little better because jack thinks its one of the most beautiful things about him (and spends a lot of time between those legs too) 

-jacks family was pretty trans/homophobic so he grew up having to conform to masculinity but gabe helped him to become more flexible and open about his gender expression. he still keeps a pretty rigidly masculine exterior being a soldier and all, but in his downtime he wears a lot of floral print and watches sappy romance movies and he cries about them

-gabe wears a hard packer 24/7. he is always ready

Drawing of a Proconsul skull, done in pencil, 2015. Proconsul is thought to be an ancestor of monkeys and apes. The skull shown here is the most complete fossil skull known of this animal, and unfortunately it is deformed due to mineral leaching from the bone. This caused the bone to become flexible and pliable, and sediment that covered the skull caused it to become compressed. The result is an oddly warped skull. As a future scientific illustrator I have to draw a specimen as it appears, but later on I can work on reconstructing it to see how the skull would have really looked before it fossilized.

Stretching. Whether you’re increasing flexibility in your muscles or becoming more flexible in your life, it’s going to feel different, it may hurt, but go slow and you will change for the better. Get a little more comfortable with your discomfort daily. #blogilates #Vidcon
