A Colourful Construction

The colour red is appearing more and more in architectural constructions...

.. and looking at these stunning buildings on the Nottingham University campus, I can see why.

 Wedge-shaped and appearing to emerge from the ground, The International House and the Amenities Building is clad in large panels, each individually laser cut to size. The dynamic facades clad in red and brown terracotta tiles which are randomly arranged to form a distinctive new focal point.

Designed by Make Architects, the buildings are built on a site that previously had industrial use. Take a look and let us know your thoughts below.

CMYK - A world of Colour - London Poppies

One of the most poignant and colourful sights of 2014 has to be the major art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London. Marking one hundred years since the first full day of Britain's involvement in the First World War, 888,246 ceramic poppies have progressively filled the Tower's famous moat over the summer. Created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, with setting by stage designer Tom Piper, each poppy represents a British military fatality during the war.

The poppies encircled the iconic landmark, creating a spectacular display visible from all around the Tower and a location for personal reflection. The ceramic poppy installation creates a powerful visual commemoration.

This weekend volunteers began removing the hand-made ceramic poppies and the sale of the ceramic poppies will aid six service charities in the UK.

Did you visit the poppy installation at the Tower of London? What are your thoughts?

Food - A Recipe For Photography

Food, we all need it, it’s an everyday essential consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. But Liverpool born, Carl Warner, has found another use for this substance we all take for granted, building still life photography landscapes! All of the pictures below are actually created out of fresh foods!

Rialto Bridge
The Great Wall Of China - Made with Pineapple
Candy Cottage
The Chocolate Express
The Taj Mahal - Made from onion
Cucumber Bridge
2001 - A Breadscape
Famous architectural structures are made by Carl Warner and his team by assembling culinary foodstuffs piece by piece, like the Rialto Bridge or the Great Wall of China.

Loaves of bread, fish, meats, pasta and fruit and vegetables are just a few of the ingredients these intricate scenes are built from. Heaps of bread and mashed potato are formed to produce mountain scapes and spaghetti strands form a river tide.
