First of the dozen!

31 / 365

Today it's the last day of January, so... I've completed 1/12 of my 365 project!

I'm really glad for today, because it has been a difficult thing to do. I had heard that it was so difficult not to give up with this project, and I've been able to check it. Sometimes I'm really inspired and have time to try some things I've got in mind, but other days I realize it's 10pm and I still don't have a photo.

Here you have my first 31 photos of the project. I just hope to have the strength to keep doing it!

On the road.

Some pics from our ride home after spending the afternoon watching the freezing beach in January (and taking photos too).

Cor-Ten shell.

The other day I was reading this post from Desire To Inspire and came across this image (via Cabin Porn).
I was thrilled and went to the architects' website, Haworth Tompkins, to see the full project.

"The creative campus at Snape Maltings was founded by Benjamin Britten in derelict industrial buildings on the Suffolk coast. The Dovecote is part of Haworth Tompkin's phased extension of the campus for Aldeburgh Music and inhabits the ruins of a dovecote overlooking the marshes. The new form expresses the internal volume of the Victorian structure as a Cor-ten steel 'lining', a welded monocoque that was prefabricated and craned into position."

"Only the minimum necessary brickwork repairs were carried out to stabilise the existing ruin prior to the new structure being inserted. Decaying existing windows were left alone and vegetation growing over the dovecote was protected to allow it to continue a natural process of ageing and decay. The interior walls and ceiling of the space are lined with spruce plywood to create a timber 'box' within the Cor-ten shell."

Winter beach.

Last Saturday I went to the beach and took some photos. It's really peaceful at this time of the year, and I was able to try some long exposure shots, although the water was really calm.

SANAA's cube.

This is the Zollverein School of Management and Design by SANAA in Essen, Germany.

It's a concrete cube of 35m on each side, perforated with squares (in three different measures).

The ground floor contains public spaces; the cafeteria and exhibition spaces.

The second floor contains the library.

The first floor contains the design studio; the third, workspaces; and the roof, the future garden.

Happy 2012!

We did a Photobooth for New Year's Eve party!

We had seen these gorgeous photobooth props (1, 2, 3 and 4) by Oh Happy Day. We picked a few of the items (hats, glasses, moustaches...) printed, glued them to an adhesive foam board and cut them.
Then we mounted them to dowels, turbans and headbands.

Happy 2012 to everyone!
