owner initially had no idea what to do with such a cramped space. The architects proposal was to extend the building over an existing terrace.
They placed two large sliding doors that open into cavities within the
walls, this allows residents to enjoy the open air on a beautiful day.

A highwire attached to two Volvo trucks going 80mph down a stretch of Croatian road where world record-holding slackliner Faith Dickey is attempting to make her way from one truck to the next just before the line snaps. The creative was developed to show off the Volvo Trucks FH Series’ precision handling – and while there are far easier ways to do it, nothing can beat the impact of the way they decided to do it.
No trick photography. 100% real. "Pirates of the Caribbean" stunt coordinator Peter Pedrero was brought on board to oversee this.

Music paints a canvass like no words or pictures can possibly capture. It's the music, coupled with that memorable movie scene, that gives us chills. The music draws us in, and dares us to imagine the possibility. Simply put... we are living vicariously and more importantly we know we deserve our own frozen moment in time.
Music has a way of digging into your core, latching on and cementing itself to the very essence of every moment in our life. Music locks in that 1st kiss, makes the long car rides bearable, soothes us when we are sad, and make us dance like idiots in front of a mirror.
New Orleans-based artist Candy Chang gives people a chance to confess thoughts without having to feel vulnerable to the outside world. Her installation, entitled Confessions, is a public art project that took place in The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada. For one month, Chang lived in Vegas and turned the P3 Studio Gallery into an interactive exhibit. Visitors could stop by, enter a booth, write whatever thoughts they wanted to share, and drop the confession into a box that mixed anonymously with other slips. Chang then took the anonymous slips and displayed them on the walls, painting selected responses in white against a larger red canvas background.
According to Chang's website, "This project seeks to create a cathartic sanctuary for this temporary community and help us see we are not alone in our quirks, experiences, and struggles as we try to lead fulfilling lives."
This world has progressed past "Please send your resume with cover letter to..." and we all need to embrace it. There are so many reasons for a resume to die, but none more than it being fundamentally archaic. I for one can't sum up my career in one page. Truth is, I shouldn't need to. And I shouldn't have to distill all that I've done down to bulleted lists. The work I've done deserves much more respect than that. As should yours.
We ignore resumes anyway. Instead we type the person's name into the magical Google machine, and we browse. We see what comes up on the first page. And that's exactly what we should be doing. Does the person have a website? A blog? What are they writing about on that blog? Are they on Twitter? What are they sharing? What are they commenting on?
The resume is dead. Kill yours. Brand yourself instead.
