Inspiration

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Every week I get ASID's Eye on Design delivered to my email. This week's newsletter was full of inspirational photos!

Green Roofed High School
Students in Revin, France will be attending this new high school soon. The high school is built into a hill and the roof is covered in gorgeous vegetation. Check out these renderings:




Church Turned Bookstore

This Dominican Church is located in Maastricht, the capital of the Dutch province of Limburg. The church was constructed in 1294, but hasn't been used as a church since 1794, when Napoleon invaded Maastricht. The building has been used as a warehouse, bicycle storage and now a bookstore.




New Sustainable Countertop

ECO by Cosentino is made of 75% recycled content. Materials used includes porcelain, mirrors, glass, and corn. The countertops are non-porous and doesn't require sealers (don't even get me started on how much I dislike granite), and it is resistant to staining and scratching.
