A brilliant and fun animation of the competition-winning proposal by New York architects WorkAC for the Abramovitch-funded redevelopment of New Holland Island in St Petersburg, Russia. (Film co-produced by Eric Lane and WorkAC)

Went to see the ‘Senna’ documentary by Asif Kapadia last night. It was an unexpectedly powerful and brilliant tribute to a fascinating man, which was not only thrilling, dramatic and moving but also charmingly funny at times.  A must see for even those who aren’t the greatest fans of motor sport.

(Amusingly, I was the only girl at the screening but there were plenty of sobs and sniffles towards the end of the film. None of which came from me…)

Häuser mit bunter Wäsche (Vorstadt II) / Houses with Laundry (Suburb II). Egon Schiele (1914)
Am  more than a little sad that this is permanently vanishing from the public sphere (its being sold by the Leopold Museum in Vienna  at Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Evening Sale tonight for a mere £22 - 30 million!). It is breathtaking in person and positively vibrates with colour.

The Bauhaus Curriculum from 1923 (Woodcut) showing the idealised version of Walter Gropius’ “cathedral” of design. The curriculum consisted of preliminary courses and practical training in workshops. The workshops were to be laboratories for developing models “ripe for mass production, implements typical of the present day”.
