Lazy Betty is a tasting menu-style restaurant in Atlanta that opened in February 2019.
Designed by Praxis3, the eatery’s interiors comprise weathered-looking concrete floors and an exposed brick wall, which is also painted white with moments of the red brick left exposed.
The project is 2,500 square feet (232 square metres), and exposed ductwork overhead adds to the industrial aesthetic.
Kevin Parry creates stop-motion animations that turn the quotidian task of slicing vegetables and fruit into a near psychedelic exploration of each food’s interiors. Through a common technique called strata-cut, the Toronto-based animator creates videos that slowly peel away the exteriors of peppers, avocados, and onions, revealing patterns we might not notice while preparing a simple stir-fry or stew. Although Parry is used to taking his time perfecting each frame, for this series he had to race against the clock to avoid the organic materials browning or losing their vivacious color. Make sure to watch the full video below to take a look behind-the-scenes of his process, and hear the sound effects Parry created by cutting, crunching, and chewing each featured food. You can see more of his animations on Instagram and Youtube.
White Arkitekter has designed a hedge-like band of housing that could be built around existing London estates, to add homes without the need for demolition, in the latest instalment of our Dezeen x MINI Living series.
Swedish architecture firm White Arkitekter has proposed building the narrow apartment blocks to increase the density of London’s housing estates.
Named Hedge House, this system would allow development of estates without demolishing existing affordable housing.
“Hedge House allows existing affordable apartments and residents to stay,” White Arkitekter told Dezeen.
on the inside, a clock, no larger than a droplet of water, rests on the wall.
