How does one choose a photographic project? How does one project differ from the other? How does one photograph time, or the passage of? Can we photograph something that does not even exist anymore? Is a personal body of work merely personal?
After a six-year project on Kashmir, I was emotionally sapped. I wanted to take on a project through which I could connect with myself. I wanted to look inwards. And thus began a journey of going back to my roots, my memories of growing up in old Delhi.
I thought this was going to be a very simple

De Ceuvel – the Netherlands
Neat Amsterdam is a former shipyard that has become a post-industrial wasteland. This disused plot is to be turned into a green oasis housing creative and social enterprises, as well as a teahouse and a bed-and-breakfast establishment. Old houseboats that would otherwise be condemned to the junkyard will be refurbished and kitted out with green roofs and other sustainable energy features, turning these craft into on-land offices and workshops. The site’s heavily polluted earth will, over time, be ‘healed’ by «soil-cleaning plants», which will feature strongly in the scheme. Architectural practices Space & Matter, Metabolic

PURE Design Environments turns repair into redesign.
Saying a leak caused damage in your bathroom sounds relatively innocuous and routine. But in one Eden Prairie, Minn. home, a leak that started from the toilet caused thousands of dollars worth of destruction.
There was so much water that it seeped into the home’s lower level through the bathroom floor and ruined the ceiling of one bedroom; repairs had to be made to the bedroom, and the ceiling of the bedroom had to be replaced. But the brunt of the damage occurred in the home’s bathroom, which had to be entirely reconstructed.

Новая игра от Core Design под названием Project Eden выделяется весьма заурядным визуальным рядом. Основные претензии, как не трудно догадаться, возникают к странной архитектуре и посредственным текстурам — главной болезни всей серии Tomb Raider. Что самое удивительное, модели персонажей тоже вызывают какое-то внутреннее отторжение — то ли своим внешним видом, то ли неестественными позами.
Но рвение Core абстрагироваться от своей силиконовой достопримечательности похвально, и похвально весьма. Да, все их попытки доказать, что они способны на большее, чем станочно-сиквельные работы, с треском провалились (из не-TR-игрушек похвалы достойна лишь Fighting Force, тогда как приставочные FF2 и Ninja подложили издающей их Eidos ба-а-альшую

Curator convener to that of editor — and, as a former magazine editor and editorial director, he would know. He’s also a published author and head of design for homeward at Woolworths. Overseeing 38 curators, part of his role is ‘making sense of what’s emerging from the process’.
our designers and thinkers. Explain the curators’ role? The curators, who’ve been drawn from a variety of disciplines and age groups, and with a variety of different professional experiences between them, have been brought together to assess the project submissions — in themselves hugely varied. This is not a judging process. Rather

Capturing a town’s living history.
Before he moved to Hoboken, New Jersey, in 2007, John Delaney, now 50, had little experience living in close-knit communities—he’d spent most of his career as a darkroom printer in New York City. Immediately fascinated by Hoboken’s historic businesses—butchers, bakers, and comic book shops—he was disappointed when many of them closed soon after he found them. «The economy was crashing, rents were going up,» he says. «A lot of these shops that had been here for ages weren’t surviving.»
Delaney’s photography work was likewise in transition. He’d had a successful darkroom business, first as a

One man’s idea, a friend’s plan of action — and eight years later more than 60 towns across the country have undergone a transformation!
One day, Hansie Wolfaardt, manager of a cheese factory in Bonnievale, was chatting to his friend Theuns Coetzee about how their town had deteriorated. This chat gave rise to the launch of the Bonnievale DREAM project. The entrances to the town were their first goal; after which they moved onto the main street, building benches, planting up pavements and decorating dustbins. Theuns says after planting the 5 500′ tree, they gave up counting!

PLANS TO replace the Royal New Zealand Air Force’s Bell 47 Sioux training helicopters are moving ahead with publication of an Invitation to Register (ITR) interest for the NZ Defence Force Helicopter Capability Project. Interested parties had to register by July 25, with the ITR seeking companies that can provide an in-production helicopter meeting the requirements in the ITR. Four to eight helicopters will be required, the exact number to be determined later.
Unlike the Sioux that it will replace, the new helicopter is required to fulfil a much more advanced rotary-wing aircrew training role, enabling crews to easily move

We’ve long been studying ways to achieve interstellar travel. In the late-Fifties, NASA had Project Orion. This spacecraft would have used nuclear pulse propulsion – a series of exploding atomic bombs – to propel it the distance needed to reach Mars, Saturn and ultimately another star. The British Interplanetary Society studied the possibility of a spacecraft to the stars in the Seventies, called Project Daedalus. Daedalus had the goal of taking no longer than a human lifetime to reach its destination, requiring a speed greater than the capabilities proposed for Project Orion. It would have needed a very powerful fusion
