Art Meets Architecture and Design in Zaha Hadid's One Thousand Museum in Miami

Interior renderings have been released for the One Thousand Museum, a skyscraper in Downtown Miami that is just one of the many projects started by Zaha Hadid before her untimely passing. The 62-story tower features a contoured exterior, and a structurally strategic exoskeleton which has left the building almost entirely column-free and open. The luxurious residence also includes its own private helipad, a two-story aquatic center and sky lounge, a duplex penthouse, several full-floor penthouses, half-floor residences, townhouse residencies, indoor and outdoor spas, and a sculptural sun and swim terrace. Every detail of the building has been thoughtfully planned, including it`s location. The One Thousand Museum neighbors other stunning architectural feats such as the Perez Art Museum, the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, and Frank Gehry`s New World Symphony, while overlooking Museum Park and Biscayne Bay. The skyscraper will be completed posthumously, with expected completion in 2018.

"Art of the Italian Two Wheel" Vintage Motorcycle Exhibit in NYC

A collection of rare Italian motorcycles are going on display in New York City, courtesy of Stuart Parr. Parr is a designer, architect, collector and perhaps most well known as being the producer of Eminem’s 8 Mile, is now unveiling “Art of the Italian Two Wheel,” showcasing his own personal collection of motorcycles and street bikes. With an affinity for Italian builds hailing from the 1960s and 1970s, many of these motorcycles are considered top of its class and very rare. Renowned makers such as Ducati, MV Agusta, Laverda and Magni play a big role in the exhibit, unsurprisingly. But unlike normal collectors who treat their collections like gold, Parr actually rides all of his bikes in the streets of NYC. If you’re interested in vehicles and motorcycles, make sure to drop by the exhibition, open now.

“Antipode” Exhibition @ Ronchini Gallery

Toying with haunting visual motifs through clever photography and installation is rising Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde, who has recently unveiled a new exhibition at Ronchini Gallery in London. Smilde’s latest work is chiefly concerned with the spirit that occupies a place – either pristinely new or ravaged by age – represented by cloud-like emissions in empty spaces. The artist achieves this by meticulously adjusting the temperature and humidity in the spaces, then using fog machines to emit a small gas. Photographs, taken in the moments before the cloud dissipates, are the only real evidence that the cloud existed – which plays perfectly into the history of Smilde’s abandoned studios, factories, and offices. Enjoy this look at “Antipode” above, then head over to Ronchini Gallery before June 14 if in the London area.
