Aine O'Gorman | Anna Williams | The Voracity Fall 2012 | The Tangle Of Sleep

The Voracity is a personal project by photographer Anna Williams exploring hunger, consumption and beauty. Issue 8 explores ‘The Tangle Of Sleep’. Pam Morris styles Aine O’Gorman for an issue very close to the main themes of Anna Williams’ work as a photographer for clients like Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple, O Magazine, Food & Wine, Wal-Mart, Target, Proctor & Gamble and Williams-Sonoma.

We are touched by the simplicity and integrity of these images and a keen focus on simplicity but RICH beauty. There is beauty in every fold of linen, drop of water and avocado pit.

Anna Williams lives in Brooklyn with her husband, daughter and son.

Prada Perspective | Icarus Lives As Men Push Higher Into the Sky | Jeddah's Freedom Tower To Be Upstaged By China

Miuccia Prada‘s esoteric perspective is one of the primary reason’s why Prada is one of the definitive brands of the last century. Steven Meisel takes that ethos and channels it into a chess-centric and haunting film filled with unanswered questions. The presence of  Vanessa Axente, Magdalena Frackowiak, Madison Headrick, Elza Luijendijk, Iselin Steiro & Anne Vyalitsyna certainly doesn’t hurt either. via Models.com

 Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi ArabiaMen & Skyscrapers

When Dubai’s Burj Khalifa tower (aka Burj Dubai) opened in January 2010 as the world’s tallest building, plans were already on the table for Kingdom Holding Company’s Freedom Tower to reach even higher into the clouds. Under construction in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the structure dwarfs the Burj Khalifa at 1,401m for Freedom Tower vs 828 m for the Burj.

Prince Alwaleed bin Talai originally wanted to build Freedom Tower a mile into the sky, requiring a 12 minute elevator ride into the clouds. Fears that the soil couldn’t support the weight of the foundation resulted in a final plan for a smaller tower in a still mighty tall building scheduled for completion in mid-2017.

China Rising

China’s Sky City One aims to become the world’s tallest building.

As construction of the 1km high Kingdom Tower commenced, researchers set out to understand if one twice as high could be built. China’s Dr. Sang Dae Kim, chairman of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat announced that indeed a 2km high tower could soon be a reality and is technically possible.

In mid-July Zhang Yue, CEO, of China’s Broad Sustainable Builing company said the firm will construct a two-kilometre high tower having 636 floors. The location is not yet announced.

Not only does Mr. Yue’s construction company build tall skyscrapers. He builds them fast. Using prefabricated materials the firm built a 16-story building, ‘The New Ark Hotel’, in just six days. After that, a 30-story building rose in Hunan provice in 15 days.

Broad Sustainable Building plans to construct an 838-meter high tower, titled ‘Sky City 220’ in four months time from groundbreaking, making it 10 stories taller than the Burj Khalifa. This sky city tower will have schools, a hospital, 17 helipads and able to house 30,000 people.

Myth and Skyscrapers

Skyscraper: Art and Architecture Against Gravity
MCA Chicago June 30-Sep 23, 2012

Skyscraper: Art and Architecture Against Gravity examines contemporary works of art that take as their subject the form, technology, myth, message, and image of that iconic building structure, the skyscraper. While the exhibition has particular relevance to Chicago, the city that is widely known as the birthplace of this architectural type, artists throughout the world—in addition to authors, filmmakers, poets, and undoubtedly architects—have been enthralled by the human desire to build farther and farther into the sky, testing technological limits while embodying a yearning for spiritual connection to the heavens. Artists’ endeavors to explore this desire have taken many forms, from video and film to sculpture, painting, and photography. Read on

Dynamic Architecture’s Fouth Timension Is Time AOC New Day

I confess to being totally seduced by this idea of Dynamic Architecture and the work of visionary Italian architect Dr. David Fisher who states:

“Today’s life is dynamic, so the space we are living in should be dynamic as well, adjustable to our needs that change continuously, to our moods … buildings will follow the rhythms of nature, they will change direction and shape  … from sunrise to sunset, and adjust themselves to the weather, buildings will be alive.

Phallic Fiction or Good Land Use?

Burj Khalifa Rises Half A MIle Into Dubai Sky AOC Style

Skyscrapers are icons of the modern age, masculine symbols of man’s triumph over Mother Nature, who is left in the dust until death, when humans return to their original birthing place on land.

In our post Sept. 11 world, skyscrapers have dual meanings then as modern symbols of imperial power and uncontrolled consumption, as well as glorious human achievements of architectural design and national status.

Land-Based Female Principles

Can Architecture Conquer Man’s Love for Icarus with New Dreams? AOC Style

The owners of Dubai’s Burg Khalifa say that the entire skyscraper is inspired by female principles, found in the hymen flower. I called the assertion ‘phallic fiction’ — a bit like the current financial balance sheet for Dubai World —  but a reader correctly pointed out that what matters are the building’s green credentials and not its marketing hype.

Tonight, Another Mars Landing

‘It’s a tense confidence,’ ex-NASA official says of Mars mission LA Times

One of the most intriguing parts of the Mars rover Curiosity’s landing is the lack of control that the scientists and engineers have in the final moments of the mission. Because it takes 14 minutes for signals to be transmitted from Curiosity to Earth, all they can do is watch, wait and hope for success.

Scott Hubbard, who is the former director of NASA’s Ames Research Center and has contributed greatly to the Mars rover program, said: “Everybody is on edge. There’s a lot of confidence there, but the truth is Mars is still mostly an unknown. It’s a tense confidence. The software is loaded, they’re committed, and now they just have to wait and see.”

The Love Goddess Who Keeps Right on Giving Maureen Dowd

Half a century after Marilyn was found on Aug. 5, 1962, in her Brentwood bedroom, nude, holding her phone, soaked in drugs, she continues to bewitch: her death at 36 and the sketchy cover-up; her tempestuous marriages to a famous baseball player and famous playwright; her role, with Jack and Bobby Kennedy, in the most intriguing film noir triangle of all time.

In the case of our top editorial for July, my personal support of Pierre Dal Corso has helped drive his top position on our charts, although I’ve done nothing to promote this particular editorial of Daniela Freitas in over a year. With many of the GQ and Esquire editorials, our women readers love them, just as women love Treats! magazine. And guys — well they often prefer a woman with something to say.

Eve Ensler’s ‘The Vagina Monologues’ Will Be Read with Eve Ensler At Michigan Capitol June 18th AOC French Roast News

I’m also pleased that second most popular post is not a sexy editorial but a political article about the Vagina Monologues being read on the steps of the Michigan capitol on June 18th. I’m guilty of bribing potential readers with sexy vagina cupcakes — a clear reason for knocking straight news stories out of a prominent search position. This duality expresses the mindset of our readers: sexy people are often highly intelligent, successful and have a highly-developed social conscience. ~ Anne
