Etienne-Louis Boullée's Cenotaph for Newton & Lebbeus Woods proposed tomb for Albert Einstein

"Architecture and war are not incompatible. Architecture is war. War is architecture. I am at war with my time, with history, with all authority that resides in fixed and frightened forms. I am one of millions who do not fit in, who have no home, no family, no doctrine, no firm place to call my own, no known beginning or end, no "sacred and primordial site." I declare war on all icons and finalities, on all histories that would chain me with my own falseness, my own pitiful fears. I know only moments, and lifetimes that are as moments, and forms that appear with infinite strength, then "melt into air." I am an architect, a constructor of worlds, a sensualist who worships the flesh, the melody, a silhouette against the darkening sky. I cannot know your name. Nor you can know mine. Tomorrow, we begin together the construction of a city." Lebbeus Woods

Etienne-Louis Boullée's Cenotaph for Newton
Lebbeus Woods proposed for Albert Einstein
“In 1980, Lebbeus Woods proposed a tomb for Albert Einstein – the so-called Einstein Tomb – inspired by Boullée's famous Cenotaph for Newton. But Woods's proposal wasn't some paltry gravestone or intricate mausoleum in hewn granite: it was an asymmetrical space station traveling on the gravitational warp and weft of infinite emptiness, passing through clouds of mutational radiation, riding electromagnetic currents into the void.” (Geoff Manaugh).

Hugh Ferris





'Early twentieth century architectural renderer Hugh Ferriss secured a lasting legacy with his urban futurist drawings of looming Art Deco buildings, mysterious domes, sensuous spaceships, and skylines that look eerily like today’s cities and downtowns.'

I read somewhere that this guy was the inspiration behind gotham city.

The longest way.

An excellent take on the one pic per day grow a beard premise, the video in fact becomes more about the surroundings than the centre piece. top dog.

Guillaume Apollinaire - Il Pleut

Early Sketch...

Typographic final version


It's raining

It’s raining women’s voices as if they had died even in memory
And it’s raining you as well marvellous encounters of my life O little drops
Those rearing clouds begin to neigh a whole universe of auricular cities
Listen if it rains while regret and disdain weep to an ancient music
Listen to the bonds fall off which hold you above and below

This is nice, yeah?

A collection of drawings by one of the funniest people I know. Influenced by the cynical, ironic law of the so called sod and her fascination with, household objects and potato based products... its the small things in life.  Sketches by Lyndsey Monaghan©
