The latest project from Klein Dytham Architecture (my ex-employers, while working at PechaKucha) is the Picchio Visitors Centre and Ice Rink in Karuizawa — Dezeen has a full post showing off the beautiful complex.
I quite like this lovely little Snoopy stamp that you can get in Japan. Photo via Duncan Shotton.
Muji’s flagship store in Yurakucho has just undergone some big renovations, and the renewed store re-opened yesterday, with not only a new look, but also a food market area. I miss Muji Yurakucho so fucking much. You’ll find more details and photos in this Spoon & Tamago post.
I find The Art Of Computer Designing: A Black and White Approach by Osamu Sato to be pretty fascinating. Released in 1993, it’s an intriguing look at ways to produce art on computers, by someone who has created pretty trippy games (Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong-Nou, LSD: Dream Emulator). Read more about Sato and the book here, and you can download the whole thing here, courtesy of Archive.org. Via Simon Carless.
