The Grand Prismatic Spring at Yellowstone National Park (all images via Niaz Uddin)

Niaz Uddin is a photographer, director, and filmmaker that explores a variety of natural landscapes from high above. His color-saturated photographs explore crowded beaches and remote tide pools, capturing each of the scenic environments from a bird’s eye view. One of my favorite images is the picture above, which provides a rare perspective of the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park. You can see even more sky-high images on his Instagram, and buy limited prints on his website.

Behold the Small Buildings of Tokyo, as found by John Einarsen. Kyoto Journal's Instagram page is a wonder; I want to live in all of these places simultaneously. There's a book, but you'll have to order it in Yen. [via]

You're a Something?

JD-

I can’t fathom how weird it must be, being a muggle unknowingly born with the wizarding gene (is it genetic?).

You’re just walking around as a kid, and some other kid bullies you, and for reasons outside of your comprehension that kid flies away or turns blue or is suddenly only able to speak backwards.

Wizard probably isn’t even their first thought. How many 10yo kids were waiting for Charles Xavier only to get a letter from magic school instead?

An Historic Cape Town Grain Silo Converted into 80 Cylindrical Art Galleries

1 Share

Housed in what was once Cape Town’s tallest building is the newly unveiled Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA), created by London-based architect Thomas Heatherwick. The institution’s 80 gallery spaces were converted from 42 historic grain silos, storage units which were once used to hold and grade maize from all over South Africa.

Heatherwick Studio transformed the tightly packed tubes into open areas of contemplation, carving out various oblong shapes to make room for large social spaces and lots of light from overhead windows. Heatherwick wished to clear out large spaces for the galleries, however he was also careful about not eliminating the tubular structure of the building completely.

“We realised we needed to do something that your eye couldn’t instantly predict,” Heatherwick told Dezeen“Our role was destructing rather than constructing, but trying to destruct with a confidence and an energy, and not treating the building as a shrine.”

The nearly 20,000 square foot museum is one of many facilities that form the V&A Waterfront, a cultural center dotted with several bars and restaurants on the city’s harbor. (via Dezeen)
